Friendly staff who are always helpful with a big smile. When I emailed them ahead of my stay they had arranged my taxi from Cubu airport and then my boat from maya....

Simple, but clean and OK bamboo huts just next to the beach. On the southwestern part of the island away from the crowd. Very nice beach just outside your door. By low tide you have to walk far out to get wet, same as on other places on the island.

We spent 5 nights at White Sand and it was everything we expected - simple, clean and with a view to the beach. Loved the hammock on the balcony! The bungalows are situated on a private beach which was windy all the time - made it very nice to sun bathe as it was not too hot. What they could...

Stayed here for one night and the room we stayed was big which was good because I like wide open spaces. Nice place to stay if you want to experience the island, which was perfect because we only needed a place to sleep and wash-up. Very accommodating and friendly staff. Staff is very open to communication whether through text or...

This place is simple, cozy and gives you exactly what you need if you want to relax on the island of Malapascua. What many don't know is that they have an original Thai cuisine with an owner who's passionate about it. Don't forget to try! It's a great surprise
