We stayed here for a few days over the Christmas period and chose this accommodation based on reviews and lonely planet recommendation. I have to say we were disappointed that these reviews were not reflected in our stay. Firstly, only breakfast is available. They do not serve other meals. Breakfast was very basic in comparison to other places. Mike was...

Chose Aabana based on Lonely Planet. Made an initial booking, but I managed not to send the email. Mike still made space for me, even gave a nicer room for one night for the same price. After first night there was a Finnish flag on a pole outside the resort. A proper flag I mean. Never felt so welcome anywhere!...

I chose Aabana again because of the location at the quiet end of the beach,the cottage,which is perfect for chilling out.And the atmostphere that Mike and Diose have created there. A big welcome on our return,after Mike had arranged a van for us at a very good rate. Breakfast by the sea,on a very white beach.....Again,try the mango pancakes. Staff...

We stayed one night and left the next morning. We were charged 15-20% extra for our room based on electricity usage - where the room has a refrigerator running which you cannot disconnect. The guesthouse is located on the very far eastern side of the beach, far from restaurants and attractions (still a 10 min walk, small island). The next...

My time in Malapascua was special thanks to my stay in Mike and Diose's resort. Sadly I couldn't met Diose because she was out of the island, but I bet she is as friendly and kind as her husband Mike! They have taken good care of their place, which is located at the end of Bounty Beach, and has a...

The owner was very nice which is what kept my rating from being lower but on the whole I was not very impressed. I would say the pros are that the rooms have very nice covered balconies, and that the resort is fairly quiet, and away from most of the islands foot traffic. However, I had a pretty negative experience....
