Good Vibes and Tasty Food

Maria, one of the co-owners greatest us with smiles and drinks on arrival. Location is convenient to all dive shops and is right on the beach. Good and quiet night's sleep with fan and air con.
Enjoyable stay! Service is friendly. Although Malapascua is limited in resources and activities, we were pleased with our stay. Reasons why the Hippocampus is a 3-star: this tiny island caters to divers, so everyone is easygoing. Room includes a fridge with a few overpriced drink choices and no other amenities. Water pressure for shower is nonexistent but is the same for the entire island. We were able to join dives at the last minute but booking a day ahead is recommended. Food was excellent but depended on what was available on the day. Nice variety of menu choices, from traditional Philippine cuisine to western favorites.

not bad but

beach beach beach
It is not bad, also here serve a free breakfast. But restaurant is a little expensive and not delicious I ate 2 lunch and 1 dinner. Also waitresses pretend to not hear my order. they just play and talk a lot themselves when i went back from island. I used special boat of hotel 1000 passo. But they dropped us 2km away from Maya port. nothing there. no bus. just touts of rent car wait us.

happy hippo

location, helpfulness of manager Michael, the netted bed
Nice resort in a beautiful location. One or two staff could be little more friendly. Only reason a good deal was the discounted rate. Otherwise very expensive. Perfect location for divers.

Hippocampus Beach Resort

Hotel is small,sweet and clean.
For a 3 star hotel what can you expect more! The location is good. The manger welcomes us upon arrival thats nice. The food is good. We had a very peaceful stay there w/my sister last 09-11 march.

The hotel is OK buy never wonderful

The owner is helpful, central location, window with insect net
The breakfast is no good and the staff is not helpful. Being a guest, you will have to find solution yourself. For rxample they took my booking wrongfully from a twin bedroom to a double bedroom. Took away the camera rinsing bucket without asking me. The owner is trying his best to run the hotel professional but clearly his staff is not on the same line as he does. Manage your own things and find solution yourself

Beautiful Beachfront Resort

location on the beach with awesome views, great restaurant/breakfast area upstairs, cosy little bar
very much enjoyable. Been there a few times over the past 7 years and will always come back. Very recommendable for couples (honeymoon/anniversaries/romancing) but also for families with children (very safe).

no hot water for bath,no water for drink,so much mosquitoes in room and no mosquito repellent incense,no a very good experience.
Kent J. Solo travelers Australia, July 10, 2014
Hotel was fair. Owner ripped us off with transfers

Low priceGood locationClean
Overcharges for extras like transfers. FYI , a transfer from Cebu City to the island should be about 2600 , 3600 pesos. About half what this dodgy operator charged.
