This is a beautiful island and a nice place to stay. The rooms are the most luxurious on the island, as they have air con, cable TV and hot showers.. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. They do not yet have any childrens cots or baby chairs for the restaurant though so keep this in mind if you are travelling with young kids. The pool is beautiful, very warm and great for the kids to play in. The food is just OK.... not horrible, but not served with any finesse. Our tip would be go on down the beach to the restaurant at the Evolution dive centre, as they have a very delicious bistro style menu which changes every day. Negotiate with the manager for a good price and a room proce inclusive of food. We negotiated and ended up getting all our food and drink included in the proce of the room... this included alcoholic drinks and was a great saving.
A bit rough around the edges but overall a good place to stay.
- 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
