    The location and the dives we did through the resort were really great. The staff at the craic house (resturant of the resort) was very kind and nice. TIP: They don't use plastic bottles in the resort, you can bring your own or to buy one made from stainless steel.

    Hard to leave...”
    The room was great, and was spotlessly cleaned each day. The restaurant and staff were excellent. On top of that, it's probably the best dive school I've dived with. The equipment was well maintained, and the instructors were very professional (but still nice and chilled). It's not the cheapest on the island, but I think it was excellent value.

    Best resort on Malapascua!”
    Evolution has everything you could want in a dive trip. The rooms are clean and spacious, the restaurant is affordable and the food tasty, and the diving is excellent. Check in/out is super easy, and the place is so safe that I felt fine not locking my door. The staff are all helpful and nice. If you're diving with Evolution (which you absolutely should because they are far and away the most eco-friendly dive shop), there's no better place to stay.

    Great resort especially for diving ”
    The resort is very simple but very nice, it is right in front of a nice white sandy beach, and we were lucky enough to get the first room overlooking the ocean, literally 20 meters from the sea. In the morning there are small boats on the beach to take the divers, but after 9am all the boats leave and the beach is basically empty and much more enjoyable. The restaurant in the resort was good, the staff was nice and friendly, there were many diving options, but we decided to avoid diving because we were both beginners and my wife was a bit afraid, we will try it next time for sure. There are nice spots for snorkelling but there is not much more to do in the island, beside diving and sunbathing. Overall we had a very nice stay and I will recommend Malapascua island and this resort to friends.

    Great food at the restaurant. Nice experience for divig. although, for first experience DSD maybe is not the right place to dive because we almost just saw some sand and fishes. Perfect beachfront, just missing a pool to start learning how to dive with more confort.

    New rooms, quiet location”
    The rooms seemed new and are in a good condition. The shower head could do with an updgrade but this isn't a major issue. The location of the hotel is at the end of the beach, making it quiet. It is also a 5 to 10 mins walk to the main sections of the beach. Diving with evolution is abit pricey though but the facilities seem good!

    Very good”
    This resort is a good 20-minute walk to Bounty beach where the public boat would dock. Luckily for us, we hired a private boat and you can ask them to take you right on the shores of Evolution resort. if you don't like the crowd, then this beach area is for you. However, the rooms were rather pricey. The only affordable option would be a fan room which is about the same price for an AC room in the resort next door (Exotic). With the hot and humid weather, its not a good idea to get a fan room. I was expecting a lot from Craic House (their restaurant) but the food is pricey and choices are minimal. They only serve 2 main dish daily. If you like meat, then there's nothing for you here. They only serve vegatables and seafood.

    Best diving in Philippines ”
    Staff comfort cleanliness
    Diving resort very professional and best dive sites I have experienced in Philippines. Thresher sharks to Pygmy sea horses. All is here.staff training is very evident and everyone knows your name from day one and goes the extra mile to make you happy. Managers of each section made themselves known and t held to now who to turn to if you have a problem. Personal gripe. It is difficult to avoid passive smoking if you are a non smoker. This is a personal dislike of mine that can spoil you're day. The restaurant bar area has no non - smoking area. This is bad enough but smoking on the boats ! Today returning from my last dive there were smokers at the front, middle and back of the boat. On my first day trip there was a young guest sheltering by the captain smoking. Between them was a fuel canister. On what other form of public transport is it acceptable to smoke today ?

    Not comfortable, staff are snobbish ”
    We arrived and our room’s air conditioning did not work at all. One of the lady commented maybe because the window was open and explained how the air conditioning works. We didn’t have time to check the window because we just got in the room. And of course we know how the air conditioning works, we came from Vegas and we have centralized air conditioning in our house. We don’t need and insult or lecture about an air conditioning. They said to wait until 7:00 pm for the maintainance to fix and it still did not work. They apologized and we end up staying all night because it was super hot in the room. My son was sick so he can’t dive. Staff are rude except Beth. We stayed for 7 days. My son was able to dive on the last day because he’s able to equalized. My son left his slippers by the beach area and it was stolen.

    Nice accommodation a bit away from all the rest. ”
    This place is like 15 min walk from where you arrive with the boats. Either you pay 150 to a local to get you there with boat or you walk. The place is very quite and nice. Beautiful beach and location, the rooms are really nice and the shower is the best ive had in PH! The personell are good and offer nanny for 150pesos/hour a bit steep i would say considerig they earn like 600 a day. But i guess it is what it is. Their diving crew is though not to my liking, they have a great review on the island but I never felt it going there. Lack of entusiasm and lack of guidence, so Inonly did one dive and then went for devocean and tresher shark divers, hence a bit if walking during the days. Restaurant is fine, expensive food considering other options. Their wraps, falafel especially is great though! There is a little place 3min behind the hotel which offers cheaper food to start the day, or you just go to hippocampus which have great food and nice view and better prices!

    Everyone (reception, restaurant, dive masters and instructors, guys on the boats) at Evolution was amazing. They were so friendly (called me by name from check in until departure). For the most part, the food in the restaurant was very good, and happy hour drinks were just what I needed after a day of diving. I was there for the scuba experience and they didn't disappoint with the selection of dive sites, attention to diver safety and overall knowledge of the area.
