We stayed for one night in the basic single room. Price is cheap, so you get what you pay for. The room has a very low ceiling, not recommended for 6 footers. The bathroom is the most compact one I've seen, you can literally use the faucet or toilet while you're taking a shower with heater. Staff were accommodating and...

I went for a few days to this place. I'll start by saying that the location is sublime! I suppose I booked the last room and once I got there, it was a major disappointment for the rather high price I paid. The room was dark, there really was no view, if you opened the windows, you saw garbage cans...

Nice white sand beach and nice views from the spaciuos terrace of the bungalow. The restaurant is really good and serves phillipine and western dishes. But the price for that quite old bungalows is not really worth for the money. The bungalows are big but not as big as announced on Agoda or Booking. The german manager is Not friendly....

it was a nice place to stay, although the water coming out of the faucet are all salty. it is the best place to stay in Malapascua. It makes you feel secured in the event of Tsunami since it is high enough, has 3rd floor. Food is Ok too

Location: Good. Beach front. A little over 2 minutes walk and you'll reach restaurants and local stores. They have bike rentals. Rooms: Variety. Standard room was cozy but the bathroom is a little too small for comfort. Minimalistic. Could improve more on their standard rooms. Suite rooms and Villa are spacious. Definitely go with either one. All are beach front....

The hotel is on the seashore, has its own restaurant and some deck-chairs. Sea entrance is good, however very fleet even on a high tide. The staff is nice. We had a Standard room which is absolutely unadvisable. It's under the suites and very dark. It's almost no fresh air inside and impossible to air the room. A/C is very...

Sorry, we have to charge you for everything from towels to extra water because we do not have many guests, our place is not as good as it use to be, we are trying to fix that
