This hotel is well past its prime and the presidential suite we stayed in was not very presidential apart for the nice sea view and balcony. The room is basic with a bathroom that needs renovation and hot water in the basin. But it's an island hotel and as such you cannot expect much more than this at the price....

We enjoyed the pool; one of the only ones available on the island, I think. And really enjoyed the second room we took on the left-hand side of the pool... with quality fittings, tiled floors, two comfy beds etc. The mini gym overlooking the pool was well fitted-out too... surprisingly `usable`. Unfortunately the first room we took was too basic...

They served a buffet breakfast -- which was great but only limited to hotdogs, eggs and ham. The facility also has a pool. Not quite big. Overall, i...

We booked this hotel primarily because it has a freshwater pool. Very few hotels on the island have a freshwater swimming pool because the beach is right there. Keeping in mind that the sland caters to divers who are there to see the thresher sharks, most of the hotels on the island are geared towards this market. The rooms are...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Malapascua Island is situated two and a half hours away by car and four hours away by bus from the city of Cebu. A barangay of the town of Daanbantayan, Malapascua Island takes pride in its world class diving spots and pristine white sand beaches. It is widely referred by locals as the "Boracay of Cebu." As a diving destination, Malapascua Island has become known for its beautiful coral gardens and excellent local dive spots, as well as further out sites like Gato Island, Monad Shoal, and Kemod Shoal. Monad Shoal is an underwater plateau where thresher sharks and manta rays can be seen on a regular basis. The town's name is derived from two Spanish words, "mal" and "pascua", which translated in English means, "bad" and "Easter" or bad Christmas. According to locals, the Spaniards named the island that way after they arrived there on a stormy Christmas. Malapascua Island is a promise of a great dive and a relaxing beach experience, making it a popular travel destination for local and foreign tourists alike. ... more   less
