Its a well known place for divers. What you might get from my review is that it retains its good value. Facilities are as good as it can be in malapascua and the vibe , especially around sunset is amazing.also worth mentioning is that you dont get lonely, even if you are solo.

We stayed here for 5 nights and wish it was more. By the time we left we knew nearly every staff member by name. We were treated so well and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed.

The managers Lee and Dor were awesome as

I stayed here as I wanted to dive with the Thresher sharks and the hotel was convenient for that. The room and bathroom was clean...the restaurant and bar was good (I wasn't tempted to eat elsewhere). It was above functional without being exceptional. But for island accomodation is was just right.
