Located in front of the beach and with dive shop.
Food is very good and staff was kind and nice.
But internet condition is poor, so almost cannot use wifi in the room, and password is changed daily so we had to ask counter everyday.

Very nice place in front of the beach.
The staff in general was nice but Georgina, in particular, made us feel at home far away from home. She has always a few minutes for you, some tips and a friendly smile.
The breakfast nice and with fresh fruit on a daily basis.

Is malapascua Island accessible going to Oslob and Sumilon Island? We are planning to have a tour at Oslob and Sumilon but I am quite confused of where to stay/check in a hotel.
No. Malapascua is about 8 hours by bus via Cebu City to Oslob. Best stay in Oslob is at Brumini Resort for the Whale Sharks and Sumilon

Would like to ask, I have read from one of the reviews that the rooms have no TV? Or maybe these days they already provided one for their hotel room? Is it?
If I remember correctly, I don’t think we had one in our room. We were always out exploring the island that I didn’t really pay attention too much about having a TV.

Is this a swimming beach? I cant see any sun beds in the photos.
Hi..you can go swimming, but i wouldn't consider it as typical swimming beach as there are boats stopping to unload. If you walk a few hundert meters though, you will find a swimming beach.

Do you have any Suites or adjoining rooms suitable for a 2 adults and a 13 year old son?
I don’t think they offer connecting rooms. You might be able to request rooms next to each though if that works for you.

"Ocean View second floor"
"Beach Front rooms are the best view when you wake up in the morning. Go back to the City in the morning instead of afternoon."
"Rooms in the Garden View area are very quiet"
"For the best views, choose the beachfront rooms"
"If noise is an issue and you want more privacy, select a room upstairs."
US$16 - US$110 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
