Dorianne C. Couples Switzerland, November 30, 2015
Low season, low service?

Good location, big swimming pool
We had booked an Air Conditioning sea view room, and the picture attached to it was a bungalow. As we arrived, they tried to put us in the big house with many rooms behind the swimming pool , with two single beds. We insisted for a double bed so they changed us to the bungalow which was the one from the photo. We were then happy but wondering why they didn't put us there right away. Finally, there was no warm water, so they moved us to the best room: for real it was sea view, it had a fridge, and was what we had been wanting from the start. So in the end, we were very pleased by the room, but it took some work. A disappointment was that the restaurant closed at 5:30pm. Probably because of low season (end of November). But also the service wasn't very present, it looked like an empty resort. Room service was done at 5pm, usually the time we came back from diving, so we declined it. We didn't feel like trying the breakfast, because we had short time before diving and were afraid that the service would be too long. Paying 70-80$, maybe these are the prices in malapascua, but it's really overrated...

Good Value right on the beach

Beach front location,
The location right on the beach couldn't be better. The air conditioning was weak but the room did eventually get cool after several hours if you let it run. The shower was cold until I asked in the office. Only after I inquired did they turn on the water heater. After that the temp was ok. The shower was usually ok except for one day when the shower spewed brown sludge. Maybe it was rust and maybe is was mud. I let the water run and after about 20 min it cleared up. We tried to eat in the restaurant but were told that it was closed because food was not available. Malapasqua is a small island about 1 hour from the main island and all items arrive by small boats making all items expensive and deliveries uncertain. Still in all, all the other restaurants seemed to be open. The main attraction on the island is the scuba diving and this was certainly not disappointing. the coral is badly damaged and there is strong evidence of over fishing but the sharks are amazing. Definitely worth the trip!

Feels like a home stay

Location, swimming pool, breakfast
Good location where it's pretty much in the middle of dive shops just close enough to walk to. Short walk to the village as well if you need to stock up on water and snacks. And when it gets too hot in the day, it's relatively well maintained pool is pretty inviting for a dip. Beds are comfortable, air conditioning is strong and quiet. Toilets are clean as well. Only tried the breakfast there and it serves up simple but hearty eggs, rosti and toasts.

Nice seaview, relaxing, large And Clean rooms

View Large rooms Friendly staff
We enjoyed our stay here during the off,season (July) it was a Relaxing, quiet stay. We had a hut with seaview it has a veranda where you can Chill out And enjoy the seaview. Rooms are large And being cleaned every day. Breakfast is satisfying, dinner could be better not everything was available (low season) During the night (around 12) water was cut off and came back on around 6 in the morning. They sell plenty of water, but taking a shower after a night out was not possible. I would recommend the cocobana beach resort to everyone.

relaxing stay on a paradise island

great location, friendly staff, excellent room
The beach chalet was a great option, as it is very spacious, clean, and well designed with ample lighting, good air-con, and separate shower and toilet stalls.It is also close to the restautant but quiet at night. The hotel also has a nice small pool. The staff was especially friendly.

Enjoyable, but expensive

Friendly staff
Overall, the experience was acceptable. They were still reeling from Yolanda/Haiyan. Electricity was out for about 2 hours when we arrived. The beach however was far from desireable to swim on. For the price we could've deserved a free breakfast. I wouldn't recommend to anybody else. Maybe things have improved since.
