We stayed here for 2 weeks in December 2016 over Christmas and New Year.
Prior to arrival the communication with the team was very professional. They arranged all of our transfers to and from Cebu which were all stress free and seamless. The drivers were always there ahead of time, the handover between the taxi and the boat transfer to Malapascua was seamless, and when arriving on the island we were greeted on the beach by smiling and enthusiastic reception team - a very warm welcome.
The rooms are chic, simple and spacious. We had room 12, and upper floor garden room with aircon and fan. It was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and a third bed was provided for our daughter which still left plenty of space.
The rooms were cleaned daily, the sheets changed every three days, absolutely not complaints about cleanliness or service.
Reception was manned until 9:00 pm. You were encouraged to hand in the room key when you left the premises, after 9:00 pm an all night watchman is on site who has access to the keys.
I have stayed in more expensive hotels where inter-room noise is an issue, the room block is well built with absolutely no inter-room disturbances, even when your neighbors have set their alarms for 05:30 to do the dawn thresher shark dive!
The whole operation is slick, the office staff polite, the site is spotless with the groundsmen constantly grooming the resort sand, picking up leaves and raking the sand. A resort where barefoot living is the reality!
Evolution is a great, relaxing, quiet place to stay, other resorts have more neon and flashing lights - but are these really necessary for paradise island living!
We loved our experience at Evolution - the owners Matt and David have created a great environment that we thoroughly enjoyed - thank you!
