We stayed for 1 week at the Legend and had a great time. The beds were really comfortable and the bathroom was new and clean. The room was big and great for 2 adults and 2 children - but it was not cleaned the entire week. (We cleaned the bathroom and swept the floors, not a big deal but still..)
The staff were really friendly and it was great to have a nice central dining area where we hung out on the one rainy day we had.
They set up transfers from the airport for very reasonable prices (beware of scamming ferry men at the dock though who charge you to carry your bag about 4 feet and then charge for the bag transfer and the people transfer separately when it's already included in price! This is not the hotel's fault.)
Lovely new pool and great pizzas and shakes!
Try to negotiate prices though - we got 4 breakfasts included in our rate which was much less than advertised.
Great central position on main beach.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Malapascua Island is situated two and a half hours away by car and four hours away by bus from the city of Cebu. A barangay of the town of Daanbantayan, Malapascua Island takes pride in its world class diving spots and pristine white sand beaches. It is widely referred by locals as the "Boracay of Cebu." As a diving destination, Malapascua Island has become known for its beautiful coral gardens and excellent local dive spots, as well as further out sites like Gato Island, Monad Shoal, and Kemod Shoal. Monad Shoal is an underwater plateau where thresher sharks and manta rays can be seen on a regular basis. The town's name is derived from two Spanish words, "mal" and "pascua", which translated in English means, "bad" and "Easter" or bad Christmas. According to locals, the Spaniards named the island that way after they arrived there on a stormy Christmas. Malapascua Island is a promise of a great dive and a relaxing beach experience, making it a popular travel destination for local and foreign tourists alike. ... more less
