Had potential but let down by staff and dogs

Location and clean
We did not enjoy dining with all the dogs hanging around our table and on the beach. The staff were often inattentive. The food was disappointing. The Ocean Vida next door was much better value. Could easily be improved with a little more attention to details like cleaning the beach

Well located Hotel on Bounty Beach, Great Dive shop French Kiss Divers downstairs. Great Bar and restaurant on site . Great Food. Owners need to stay a few nights at Angelina to get some design and renovation Inspiration.

Chilled place with great staff

the staff and their service, the location
It's a chilled resort, not the best on the island, but nice. The service is far better than anything you will get on Malapascua. The rooms are OK, not fantastic but comfortable. The showers need a bit more pressure, it was hard getting the shampoo out of my hair! Otherwise nice.

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.

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
