Resort was a bit far from docking site but it's fine. Food is great and I can say that it is a home-away-from-home type of resort. I love it! Will definitely be back!

I highly recommend Purple Snapper Dive Resort. It is a moderately priced resort with diveshop and is located an easy 5 minute stroll from the beach. The resort is clean and spacious. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, they were truly exceptional. One highlight which only those with small children would appreciate is the very nice swimming pool with a children’s area with a low wall which prevents them from venturing into the deeper part of the main pool. Out three small boys enjoyed it so much! Great place, if we return to Malapascua we will surely stay there again.

Friendly staff, clean room, but noisy at night ”
Good location, nice pool, clean rooms, it's OK, but not perfect, staff was really nice, did not see the manager though except on the first evening when he was drunk because of a birthday celebration. WiFi did not exist - at least none of the staff knew the password and the manager who was supposed to know it was constantly out of reach for some reason. Breakfast was "Ok" - rice with ham and sausages and a Coffee. At least 10 roosters will start their day at 4 in the morning latest, don't expect too much sleep, construction works around the pool (maybe because of low season). The best were cleanliness of the room, good shower and the friendly staff, which made us stay for 3 nights.

price not worth the room”
the air conditioned room is quite expensive (we paid 2.2k for it), it seems that there is no AC at all. they didnt mention about the free breakfast when we ordered our food in the resto not until we checked out of the hotel..we still paid for the food which i cant understand why. they are stilm renovating the place when we went there.

Location, nice staff
I needed a resting vacation but for two nights there was a nearby "fiesta" until four in the morning. Impossible to sleep. The other nights still not quite because of millions of roosters around.

noisy nightmare”
kind staff, cheap, natural construction materials
this hotel can easily become a nightmare especially if you stay in the second floor where you can hear in an amplified way all the island noises, from the hundreds of roosters to the super loud fiesta music all night long till 8am, is a pity because the staff is very kind but the location is really unfortunate

Decent accommodation for the price you pay”
Price- compared to a few others, it is quite reasonable and should be good enough if all you need is a pillow for your head every night.
Purple Snapper is a reasonably priced resort compared to many others on the island and will suffice if all you need is a pillow for your head every night. However, note that it is not the cleanest around, and you might find yourself in one without hot shower although it is not explicitly stated. Also, I get a lot of mosquito bites from the restaurant but overall, I agree with the majority that it gets a 7 out of 10 and is reasonable for its price.

very budget, dirty rooms, cold shower, noisy”
cheap, included breakfast
I knew I was booking something cheaper but this place was below standard. Room was very dirty when I checked in and shower broken. Nobody at the dive centre at the time so I went out and found another one to do my dives with. Staff is friendly but not very attentive. Free wireless in the main restaurant area. Very noisy due to roosters in the early morning,the hotel is supplying free earplugs but that does not help too much. If I come back I would be paying a bit more and look for a nicer place

do not stay here. the owner threatened us.”
breakfast
The owner arranged a dive trip for 4.30 am after getting to the beach there was no boat. So we couldnt go diving and missed the sharks we had gone to malapascua to see. We then didn't want to dive through his shop again as we didnt want our next day ruined. He threatened us and said he would call police on us. Do not stay here.

Bar, food, staff
It was ok. Yeah this is the tropics and roaches thrive here. Diving and snorkeling were good. Purple snapper had a nice bar area to chill out and eat and drink a beer while using the Internet. But the roach in the room killed it for me and I ended up sleeping on the beach.
