We had a really nice stay at SLAMS. The pool is lovely, the staff are very friendly and kind, the room and bathroom were nice and clean. The breakfast in the restaurant had good portions. It was a very relaxing place to stay and well located near the port and beaches.

The signs stating the rules and extra charges if you did anything wrong in the room and restaurant were a bit odd, and could make the place seem unwelcoming. If you are paying for AC (we didn’t), it’s exactly the same room as you’d get if you just had a fan. They just gave you a keycard so you can turn on the aircon. We thought the cost was a lot extra to pay for exactly the same room and for them to just allow you to turn the AC Unit on...

They also have a dive shop, and I think we would have considered booking with them if they had more of an online presence! We could see no reviews so booked elsewhere beforehand. The dive shop bunch seemed lovely.
Date of stay: December 2018

Hello, Thank you for staying with us and for you nice review. Yes fan or aircon is the same room but fan room is sold without breakfast and aircon room is sold with breakfast. Also don't forget you are in an island. Cost of electricity is hight compared to the city or other place. So it's why the difference in prices between fan room or aircon. Our dive shop is brand new. Start to operate last November 28. Also still operate from the compressor room as you see the construction in front. And we will get our full dive shop end of December. For that not yet presence online. Soon you will see us. Again thank you so much for liking our resort. Slam's Garden Resort Owners

Very nice pool that is clean every day. Staff are very friendly. Room is very spacious. Daily housekeeping. WiFi is good enough inside room. Have safe inside room. Refill toiletries every day. Room is very clean. Well furnished. Good water and electricity supply. Able to arrange porter services to the ferry terminal at half the price I paid. Near beach and local market. Can get groceries and food at the local market. Price of food at local market cheaper than all restaurant food in resorts. Owner run the hotel well. Plenty of decorations around. Nice and cosy.

The island is very overpriced. Full of resorts. Every thing on island is expensive. No proper roads and flooding common in many parts of island. Priced for tourists.

Ferry is service is unreliable and full of hidden cost - porter fee from beach to hotel is P100 but P50 the other way; charge P50 just to bring luggage to boat. Ferry fee depends on number of passengers. May need to pay extra transfer fee in small boat (further extra charges for your luggage).

Nothing much to do on island except diving. Diving nothing special except the Thresher Sharks in early morning. Will not recommend revisiting.

We stayed at this hotel for 6 days and 5 nights. The location is perfect. It is right next to the dive shop. We had clean rooms, fully air conditioned cold, and great room service every night. We ate breakfast there everyday. It was cooked to our liking. The location is also very conveniently close to the "Market" - an open area with lots of stores and restaurants. We ate there every night.

Highly recommended because of cleanliness, location, and very reasonably priced!!!! Cheap in other words.

Slams is a really great place to stay in malapascua.
The resort is prestinely clean with staff cleaning all areas thoroughly each day. The staff are also very friendly.
The pool is so refreshing to have in the heat, its really clean and well maintained. Opens until 10pm for a night swim.

The only reason im giving 4/5 is because of the food and drinks. The breakfast is not good, eggs overcooked, bread is stale like. Ice tea/juice/cocktails not made with fresh produce. However it is all edible, and cheap!

Stayed in Slam’s Garden Resort. The location is walkable distance from the beach where the transfer boat from Maya port stopped. We stayed in standard Twin Room with fan. The room is fine. Except that the room is a little stuffy. Even when the fan is on.
However, the staff are very helpful n friendly. Food is ok.

Hello, we are in Malapascua island. North of Cebu island. It's quite far from Samar. Look in Google map. But from Malapascua you have to go back to Cebu to go to Samar. (Fly best). Thank you
