Two dinners - both seafood stir-fry type dishes. Excellent and great value. The service though was eccentric - the girls unsure what they had and how it was prepared. The restuarant was not busy! Anyway, the food more than adequately compensated. Inexpensive.

The worst hotel experience i have tried so far in my entire life. First of all they dont neccesarely clean the room before arrival - ours were not and others were complaining too. The hotel pool is also so dirty you cant even see the bottom - one day it was all green. Second the included breakfast is somewhat the...

Brian, the only instructor at Blue Water, was lazy and unprofessional, but I guess that's what you get for the cheapest price. After two days into my Open Water Certificate I quit because I wasn't comfortable with him as an instructor. He would visibly show his frustration with me while on dives if I got nervous or panicked. When I...

The service is good and the location is just accessible. Make sure you reserved your breakfast ahead of time because the attendants work very slow. It's a beachfront accommodation with veranda, so you can enjoy the sunset and of course the beach.

We dived with Blue Water as they offered the cheapest Thresher shark dive we were quoted on the island. Very poor equipment, very badly led dives, extremely rude dive master who was quite aggressive with several people on our boat who voiced issues around safety. Unbelievable really. The rooms are also grotty and much worse than other options nearby. If...

I was GRANDPAcking in Malapascua for 11 nights. Accommodation in The Philippines is, generally, poor value for money. Everywhere. Malapascua is no exception. On the internet, you will find it hard to find anywhere on the beachfront for less than PHP1,500 per night. I booked one of the few beachfront properties that I could find and afford: a Fan Room...
