The resort offers comfortable but small rooms back off the beach and right adjacent to the market where there are some decent meals to be had. There are a range of room options, including the queen bed option I had. This has a shower and reasonable sized bathroom, and a balcony. I had chosen the breakfast included option and this was fine. They even managed to cook it the morning after the typhoon. How ever, that was about all they managed after that even, despite their being little actual damage to the resort. Power had gone and rather than provide candles, nothing was given to allow us to see in rooms after dark. Neither were there any instructions given about what might need to be done during the storm. People moved in and left almost immediately because of the lack of action. The owner did refund 70% of the room rate for the storm-affected nights but it could so easily have been avoided with more thought. When one considers there were places better set up to cope for a fraction more, it made this resort one of the less attractive options. Solar panels had been installed by the time I left but were not working so it may get better.

We stayed 1 night in a superior room with a balcony. The room was on the 2nd floor, it was having a good size for a couple and it was really clean. There was a small safe but no tv, and it was equipped with an effective and quiet aircon. It was having a balcony where you can dry clothes and sit. The hotel is a couple of hundred metres away from the beach. Opposite the entrance there are some barbeque stalls which are pretty popular in the evening. I wouldn't call the hotel a resort, but in my opinion it's offering really good value for money and I would book it again...

There seems to be something lost in translation in the Philippines with the word Resort. This is a small, maybe 2* hotel. Not a resort. Breakfast is offered but not included, but is available from the lacal market area outside, however the hygiene levels leave a lot to be desired. (not that that is to do with the hotel) Rooms are set back from the noisy market area so quiet enough at night. They do offer a few drinks and there seems to be some form of security (though it's for the most part unnecessary here) Not a bad place to stay, a bit away from the beach but the island is tiny so it's not a long walk.

The location of the resort was awesome, close to the night market of Malapascua. Rooms are quiet at the night and clean. A very good choice given this reasonable price. Staff is friendly and breakfast was OK.

I stayed here in their deluxe room and copped bed bugs. Got absolutely hammered by them and only noticed 2 days into the stay (as is standard with bed bug bites they appear 24 hours later) when I figured out what they were I switched rooms as it was late. The next day at check out I showed management my ravished legs and arms and spoke to the manager over the phone. I requested some compensation and was told to prove they had them (my maple bites weren’t enough). The owner behaved like pig and accused me of bringing them in (impossible I’d come straight from home), then proceeded to tell me she slept in the same bed a week before and everything was fine. Said she’s slept in every bed there the week before all 25 rooms worth. Hmmm. Nevertheless I showed them the bed bug stains and it still want enough, shed inspected the same stain the week before too. Go figure. So management refused to believe me and Compensate me and were rude and horrible about it. DO NOT STAY HERE

Starlight was recommended to me by my dive shop. It did not let me down. Starlight is centrally located, a super short walk to the beach (where most dive shops are located), right across from the main open market on Malapascua (where one can buy fresh fruits), and nearby to great restaurants (including - crucially - 3 minutes from Malapascua’s best restaurant imho, Bakhwa Kiwi). The rooms are great. One thing I really appreciated was that they had been effectively critter proofed - nothing was getting in once the door was shut. Having moved around the tropics and remote islands a bit, I think this is no small feat. Overall, my room was very comfortable and I looked forward to coming back to it after a long day of diving. Sandy, the owner and manager was there and I had the pleasure of getting to know her. She cares a lot about starlight. She was kind enough to help me book my airport transfer on the way up. And - because we were going in the same direction around the same time on the way south to cebu - we shared the ride back. Obviously this isn’t an experience many other guests will be able to share. But it says a lot about how much Sandy cares about her guests and how hard she works on their behalf. She was always on hand to answer guests’ questions and help them out with whatever help or local advice they needed - or just to chat.

I know this review is a bit late but I was thinking of my "Malapascua Diving" experience. Yes, I stayed in this place and the service was amazing... They're friendly and accommodating... Stress free... the rooms are new... and clean. I highly recommend this place... Worth it... Very reasonable price...
