Nice and Cool”
Cocobana is nice and value for your money.
Overall good value for money Good things: Location Pool Friendly Staff Amazing view from oceanview room Big rooms Bad things: All our stuff got green from swimming in the pool Need a proper door to the toilet breakfast expense- but is a restaurant just behind who serves breakfast for a 1/4 of the Price.
We booked the partial sea view,not even facing the sea. Pool is available.staff is ok. Room is basic but had a balcony which is nice. A lot of mosquitos when we opened the cabinet but overall,its a good place to stay. Beachfront as well.
Watch out! If you go out of the room, somebody might steal your money from wallet How do i know? I did!
The ferry literally came ashore in front of the hotel. Convenient but all these ferry boats spoil the beach. We didn't scuba dive. The corals near the shore are in poor shape. A bit better on the far northern coast (Bantigue). Some big gaps in the door and windows kept the aircon going all night and also invited in the mosquitoes! Most restaurants we ate in are good (and inexpensive), probably because they are all owned and run by expats (Angelina's, Little Mermaid, Ocean Vida, Exotic Dive). Bring your own water from the mainland. The tap water on the island is slightly salty. Didn't bother us for showering. There seems to be a lot of local stray dogs and they wake you up early in the morning. No fresh coconuts available in most restaurants which is apparently a result of the 2013 typhoon.
Went well: - good location close to restaurants and the pick up/drop off point for tours - value for money, nice view, wide room - easy check in/ check out Even Better: - shower and bathroom doors don’t completely close - facilities can be improved - bad smelling pool water - slow wifi - no fridge - no free water - no 24 hour service
Big rooms, no staff after 7PM”
We were assigned a big room with spacious shower and toilet but we are a bit disappointed about a couple of things. 1) The shower pressure is sooooooo poor! It's a struggle washing your hair especially if you have been swimming in salt water and you have a long thick hair. It will take you a good 30 minutes just to wash and rinse hair. 2) The toilet area stinks!!! Stinks of pee! The seat was not cleaned properly so it's got pee stain that ugh! Just smells! We had the toilet cleaned but when we got back, the smell was still there. 3) The hotel/resort has no staff after 7PM! LITERALLY! We had issues with our room and tried to look for anyone to assist and there was literally no one!! There were a couple of guys watching TV at one area of the place and we don't know whether they were staff or what. We asked if they can call any staff and they said they don't have contact numbers of any of them. For the price of this hotel, I would suggest giving this a pass and try other places.
Good location, great service”
Very near Island drop off pick up beach location.
Strategically placed and well structured resort”
A very well-balanced and well-maintained sands, greens, trees, buildings etc. If you dont feel like swimming in the beach, they have their own pool. Staff are very polite. Although if you need anything, the only way to have them is that you go to the reception (the only con for me). We had the superior air conditioning room and we had a partial sea view (because some of the trees are blocking the view but i am fine with it). Four small to medium sized people can fit in this room plus it has balcony. If you wanna drink at night, its just a min walk along the shoreline to get to the other resorts offering booze. The overall experience, we had a very relaxing stay as expected in this resort. Definitely recommendable place.
I had a real fabulous stay in Cocobana Beach Resort! The rooms are clean and they clean the room every day. It is a very quiet place on malapascua and you can relax as well. I had a nice view too the beach. I was alone on my journey and during my stay at Cocobana i got very sick and had fever. The staff are very friendly and kind espacially Maimai from the reception and Janet the massage girl. They made me everytime Kalamansi tee and they took care of me. I am very greatful to them. They supported me from every point of view
The location and room is nice but there are no free water bottle, the internet at the pool area has low signal and sometimes they ran out of water for bath.
Perfect for one excelent vacantion”
Friendly staff, clean, good facilities, good breakfast, value for money, definitely the perfect location in Alona
Rough and ready but one of the better ones on the island”
Diving trip ”
Staff was helpful and friendly. Resort was clean and nice with pool. Restaurant was also nice by beach we only had breakfast there for a few days. No dive shop on premises but there are many nearby.
Not great, just ok.....”
No cable TV, wifi didn't work. A/C worked well which was a plus, but bc my gf stayed in the room while I went diving, not having tv or internet was a huge negative. The biggest issue for me was that I booked a room based on the picture which was a picture of a stand-alone bungalow, and I ended up in the "4-plex" looking building instead. They said that's the room I booked, which according to the picture was not correct. They were unwilling to change it for me or assist me in any way, so I had no other option. I would have much preferred a bungalow but even more than that, I would have just liked the staff to admit either the website was incorrect or they messed up, even after I showed her the picture that was misleading, she said it was my fault. Oh well, just know that if you see a picture of a bungalow and want to book it, you still may not get a bungalow.
Low season, low service?”
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...
Great staff, best location, right on the beach”
was given free upgrade to their best room, staff was very accomodating and friendly..
Nice stay with this resort”
There were mosquitoes inside our hut. It is ok..
