I stayed in this place for 7 days. My primary purpose on the island was to dive. Speaking about that, the resort offered the best diving service I ever experienced. dives were well organized and planned. The dive master and boat crew primary objective was customer satisfaction. My gear was always fully assembled before I get in the water. Can I be anymore spoiled?! Diving was just perfect. No more on this subject.
The second thing about this resort is the food. You actually dont need to go anywhere else to have your meals. The menu is diverse and I have tried almost all of it and it all taste very well. Prices are very cheap as well.
The third thing is spending the evening / night at the resort bar. The second favorite thing I do after diving was to spend time at the bar in the evening checking my mail, FB and chatting with other hotel guests and divers. People from other resorts too used to come and enjoy the evening at the bar. For some reason it was an attraction and one of the busy places in Malapascua at night. The warm staff and quite music might have been the reason...
I was a solo traveller with diving intentions but I've seen several families and couples in the resort and they were enjoying their time as well. Enough said, I recommend for solos, families, couples, divers and whoever wants to enjoy a quite and pleasant vacation...
