I enjoyed six days here with my family. Rooms are comfortable; those facing the water have a nice breeze most of the time. Breakfast and lunch are served by the beach and the food was excellent. Their new restaurant, Amihan, is also excellent. The chef (contacted before we came about my need to be gluten free) was able to accommodate my needs with delicious meals. He even had gluten-free pasta. This is probably the best place on the island to stay - the location is great. Highly recommended!

The hotel is between two beach and have good views, one time you can go to the bar/small beach view , other you can go to the restaurant/front desk and take the boat views.

Really you can see the owners try do the best ( small details you can check ), the people is funny as all philippines.

I recomendate, only have a stone at stairs and is really not good with sleepers. but is the "resort style " : wodden , bamboo and stones. Combination > GOOD.

Price is overprize than other places and little far from the "bar zone",at night is really dark ( from 18 30 pm dark ). But you can stay only at the hotel because have all : small beach, massage, bar, restaurant, view... But that is not the idea i supose.

Dislake : many cats and dogs around the bar when you eat, puppies but is a resort.

ABOUT MALAPASCUA ISLAND:

CAUTION: al the times the philippino people ( boats ) offered expensive options. To arrive to malapascua from cebu you need go to Northern Bus Terminal ( NBT ) by taxi : around 100P from downtown , then take Philippino Bus ( 180P ), by private car the cost is around 4000P ( ??? ) - take the YELLOW BUS ( A/C ) -

Then in Maya the people try give the boat : 1000P, but if you walk 30 meters, you ll take a ticket and the price is 80P.

Then you ll arrive to MALAPASCUA and can choice the hotel.

SUGGESTION: if you dont like or can not dive, dont go to malapascua. is only poor/average beach.

Room Tip: Rooms with view are OK

We stayed at Tepanee in 2 x deluxe air con rooms with amazing sea views and couldn't fault it! The staff are very friendly, and their new restaurant now open for dinner serves the freshest fish, the best on the island. We are looking forward to coming back next year. The diving on the island is brilliant, we used Thresher Shark Diving, and the private beach at Tepanee is excellent for snorkelling, relaxing and they have the best masseur! As Arnie would say, 'I'll be back'! Thanks :-) The Clarkes

My family booked from June 14-17, 2013 for a/c de luxe cottage ocean view. The room was big enough for my standard as an asian. It is simple, clean and comfortable.It is tropical designed room using bamboo bed, tables and light covers.The only negative is when there are fishing vessel at anchor staying for cover before fishing to sea. Since its ocean view you can hear their voices at night when your out at the veranda. You will have your pleasure at the private beach with a massage, bar, food, swimming and sunbathing. All in all it was a very good experience staying at the hotel. Thanks to Ranji from reception who he helped us with our bags & umbrella since it was raining. We have to brave the not so good weather riding the boat (outrigger ) when when we went home. A word of advice. To enjoy the place, come when its not typhoon season in Philippines. Malapascua island & Tepanee is a great place to visit.

My wife and I first stayed at this resort hotel in January. We were so impressed with the service, food quality, accommodations and the view/beach that we came back for 6 more nights and brought 4 family members with us. We had another great experience! We ate at the beach restaurant/bar every morning and had lunch there several times. We had dinner 3-4 times at the new restaurant on the property. The food was amazing! The dinner-only restaurant has a small but varied menu each night and the food is top notch. Seafood, meat, vegetarian - something for everyone. My mom was with us and she is gluten free. I contacted the chef in advance and he brought in gluten free pasta for her and totally hooked her up.

We love this place and hope to go back sometime in the future. There are many hotels and restaurants on the island; this is the best!

Room Tip: Rooms vary from a fan room on the water for 1500 which is simple to a air-conditioned upscale room right on the water for 3500.
