We came to mike & diose roughly 6 weeks after the typhoon that left a trail of destruction also in Malapascua. Although damage can still be observed the hotel as well as the island is fully functional: dive shops and restaurants are open, there is running water, electricity (not always 24h, but always when it's dark) and a roof over the head :) We were not hindered in any activities and enjoyed a great time.
To sum up the hotel in one word: fantastic. Best value for money, really helpful and friendly staff and you feel right at home the minute you set a foot into the resort. Mike took us on a walk across the island (about 1h) and visited various dive shops with us to help us make the best choice (we settled with evolution dive center) and also showed us plenty of places to eat. He and the staff is helpful in every aspect and made our stay unforgettable. We can only recommend staying there as it is truly a marvel.
