We were checked in at Nacpan Beach Resort but with all the 5 star reviews, we walked here to enjoy an early dinner. We ordered a Tuna Poke bowl (this wasn't bad and it was tasty although there was little tuna), Fish and Chips (arrived...cold, fries were soggy), and a watermelon shake (which was recommended by the first server). The watermelon shake arrived and we were shocked that when we sipped, it had crunchy bits. I thought it could be chia seeds but when we checked, we saw that the watermelon seeds were blended with the drink. We called the server over and he said, "Oo nga noh" while scratching his head. We were going to try to get a replacement and we were mid-sentence, but a song came on the Karaoke machine and he said he had to go. He sprinted and grabbed the mic because apparently it was his turn to sing. It's all in good fun, and I get it. But we won't be back to eat. I know this review is late and I wasn't going to write it but a friend of mine just told me he also had a poor experience and with all the 5 star reviews, I think maybe someone needs to speak up.More

Easily the best mix of cuisine options at Nacpan. Being there for a week I ate here quote a lot and was never disappointed. You have a feeling that Nacpan is a bit at the end of the earth, in a good way, but the...MM menu and bar options still let you enjoy the things you can't otherwise find here. Just with a view you will only find here.More

I and my friend spent four nights here and there was no dull moment each night. For each night, there is an event/activity. I highly enjoyed the Gender Bender Night. Fun wouldn't be completed without drinks and its bar offers open bar for 30 minutes...and every hour starting 9pm. If the goal is to let loose, Mad Monkey is the choice in Nacpan.More

Mad Monkey bar was great! The staff are so friendly and helpful, great drink specials every day, and food was really good too. The shrimp tacos and pizza are both amazing and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend any of the food/open bar specials they have frequently!

Mad Monkey Nacpan bar staff are some of the nicest I’ve come across travelling Asia! They always make an effort to learn your name and asking how you’re feeling the morning after!! 🤢😂 super friendly and always up for a laugh! The food is amazing...as well, both Asian and western food, can’t recommend the mozzarella sticks enough 😍 they also have specials and deals on food and obviously the open bar every night!
