Best accommodation in Malapascua”
I loved our stay here! The place is strategically located in Bounty beach! Also, the room where we were assigned was spectacular as we are in front of the beach. The room is also very clean and spacious. The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. Finally, the food selection are great! we love their hippo burger!!! We will definitely come back and recommend this to our friends :)

Great combination with diving”
The combination resort and dive shop Devocean under one roof is superb at the sea side with a great view for eating and drinking. There was a fantastic live band party on Saturday. Both shop and resort add up 4% if you want to pay with credit card but if you ask you can pay with bank transfer. After all I had 5 great days there.

Great location, very friendly staff”
I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff and reception attendants are very accomodating and friendly. I love the free breakfast and welcome drink. Based on the previous reviews, the management had upgraded the serving size😍 Cons- wifi is very slow at the garden rooms, but it doesn't really matter, if you want a faster signal, you can go to the lobby area. I will definitely recommend this property to my friends and family.

Lovely beachfront place”
Beautiful beachfront resort. We love how there are restaurant tables in front. The rooms are spacious though there was no aircon but it was quite cool at night.

Nice dive shop, but rooms not the best”
Good arrangement for diving, nice staff, but room is dark and noisy, only cold shower.
Reviewed March 13, 2017
Hi there Luc, thanks for the review! We are sorry the rooms were not up to your standard. You booked the Standard Fan room, which is our budget room. Our budget rooms do not come with hot showers. Electricity is a premium on this island, and hot shower heaters run 3 KVA each. This is something our generator cannot support in every room of the hotel, which is why we sell the Standard rooms with no hot shower. However, we are looking at finding a solution for this during this low season. Thank-you, Hippo Team

A Few Areas for Improvement”
PROS: 1. Beachfront 2. Friendly staff 3. Accessibility of location CONS: 1. No TV 2. Breakfast serving is small 3. Stray dogs (not just here but all over the place) Accommodation is pretty basic. If you want larger and more complete rooms, please reconsider.
Reviewed March 11, 2017
Hi Ranir, thanks for the review! Thanks for the good remarks about the beach, staff, and location! I would like to address your concerns: 1. No TV - Who needs a TV on a beautiful island? I'm not sure any of the resorts on this island have a TV in the rooms. 2. Breakfast - We have recently overhauled our entire menu, including breakfast. It is now much tastier and much BIGGER! Thanks, Hippo TEAM

Big double room”
The room was really nice, big with balcony and bathroom. the water pressure was not very good but it's comprehensible on a small island. Staff was amazingly kind and helpfull, the dive center is great, breakfast was also very good. Just on the beach but a lot of boat, if you wanna swim go to the northern beaches !
Reviewed March 09, 2017
Hi there, thanks for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay :) Sometimes there are alot of boats here on the beach when the dive shop is busy, but most times it is easy to swim in front and perfect especially at high tide :) Thanks for your review and your stay!
