definitely book the deluxe cottage
We originally booked the standard cottage but upgraded last minute to the deluxe, and it was worth every penny. Waking up to the sunrise and having the incredible view of the beach five steps from your bed are amazing feelings. Especially if you're there for just a few days, definitely splurge to book the deluxe.

Pretty and that's about it
It's a pretty enough resort - clean room and bathroom; not recommended for the elderly and people with bad knees. My calves hurt from going up and down the hill - from the room to the beach and to the restaurants. There is room service but no phone to call in your orders. Staff is not very switched on. Room capacity is 3 but the 3rd person will be charged for using the single bed that is already in the room. Food is so-so and pricey. Had croissant for breakfast and it was flat and chewy.

Good Location, Clean, Love the Balcony
Hotel is located at the South West part of the island and just near where the boats from Maya Port comes in. The rooms could easily fit 4 and are clean and airy. Staffs are helpful, but a bit uncoordinated. Love the balcony view and the private beach, best to swim in the morning.

Value for money
Though the place may be far from the city, it is worth the trip. I do suggest though that if you are a group to take the transfers of the hotel. It is much better.

Friendly and resourceful staff, beautiful resorts
I had a pleasant stay during my dive trips, it was unfortunate that my group was holding the old pesos that majority of the retail shops in Island are no longer accepting it. It was really kind of the hotel staffs to assist us in solving the matter. In addition to the above, Tepanee is one of the nicer hotel in the Island. Beautiful private beach and cosy room with balcony and sofa.

Best place in Malapascua!!! Do not miss you chance to visit!
The whole stay in the hotel starting from staff, room, meals, beach, nice territory and absolutely everyting was perfect!!! It is absolute benefit of foreingn managment in the hotel as they always there to check and make sure that hotel and restaurant staff are doing right things and do it properly! The restaurant is another benefit of this place!!! Italian chef is absolut magician making all those fresh seafood and fruits the dishes you would come back again and again for! Couple times we've tried eating outside but we've regret and alway came back! Also the place of the restaurant being on the top hill gives very nice place to eat, chat and enjoy life. From 3 weeks in Philippines it was our best hotel and the best restaurant! Small but isolated beach of the hotel is another advantage. no crowd or noise here and you can always find some place to lay or site. Beautiful sunsets every evening. Rooms are big, nice and clean with a terrace you can chile-out during the day or relaxr in the evening. You are provided even with a fumigator to protect yourself from moscitos in you room.

Lookout Paradise
It is such a lovely place with a kind of a private beach. Plus overlooking the sea from the Veranda is kind of special. I enjoyed staying there plus it was closed to the great Pizza Restaurant!

One of the best in Cebu province
Had a fantastic stay at Tepanee. Our Superior Room was very spacious and had partial view of the sea - will book Deluxe next time as they have better view of the sea. Service was top-rated: staff and owners were knowledgable and helpful. Very nice landscape and has a quiet little beach for guests. Situated on the west side of Malapascua, which is a tidy island north of Cebu, it is close enough to dive shops but far enough from roosters and the market place where locals blast techno/pop on loud speakers every night. Another highlight: 1 min walk to the best 2 restaurants on Malapascua, Amihan (fine-dinning without hefty price tag) and Angelina's (cosy and very popular). Both are Italian.
