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.

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

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.

No WiFi in the room. on the beach.

Location, AirCon, Breakfast.
Disappointed that there was no WiFi in the rooms, only WiFi available was near reception. Great location on the beach, close to restaurants and dive shops. Acceptable rates for this place. I'm a solo traveler who works remotely so WiFi is the most important thing for me. Location is second. Budget friendly third.

A lot of mosquitoes and flies, but pleasant stay

on the beach, nice food, close to dive centres
There were so many bad mosquitoes and flies making me fail to sleep well at night. Need to get a strong insect repellent and anti-mosquito thing or else the experience would be terrible.

great staff, great service, comfortable room

great diving, the restaurant/bar, great staff
Great place. Most of the resorts are up and running after tyohoon Yolanda. I was there 55 days after it happened. This resort was not affected. Shower had hot water which impressed me for such a small island. Sea quest divers is next door and is great for diving. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant/bar is nice for a sunset drink or meal. The free breakfast was really great for a free breakfast with quite a few options. They have their own boat so you can leave back to the mainland without having to bother with the island taxi boats which is really convenient and not too much if you divide the 1,000 pesos between the number of passengers leaving.
