    Excellent”

    Close to the beach, centrally located. Stunningly gorgeous bouganvilla trees in the courtyard and around the restaurant. Restaurant comfortable and open, full bar, bartender knew how to make the perfect gin and tonic :-) . We took all our meals there, very good food, service was quick. Rooms large with large beds, very simple and clean. Hot showers. Staff all very friendly and helpful. My partner and I stayed along with my son for two nights, my son even had his first diving lesson. Strongly recommended.

    THE WORST PLACE EVER!! Don’t book this “resort”. ”

    This place is the worst guesthouse I ever slept!! I am traveling a half year, and this is the first time the STAFF stole from my room 8,000 pesos! (150$) All rooms in this place smelled like toilet / the lock doesn’t work / not hot water... We got the doesn’t locked room, because the smelly is real BAD! When we check out, 2 of the employees came in to our room and 8,000 pesos are gone! The room is in a bad shape, not worth the money. The dive staff isn’t professional at all. Please don’t go there Even the local police can’t help us.

    Nice resort right next to beach”

    We had a nice 5 night stay at Little Mermaid resort.The resort is just a few minute walk across the beach from where the boat from Maya stopped .The staff are all nice and helpful and the food is nice. The room was a good size , with separate shower and toilet, and also benefitted by having a fridge and in room safe .Hot water shower was nice and unexpected. The only negative was the weak wifi , almost non existent in room , but a little better at bar/reception .Overall a good choice, especially for divers .

    Great for Divers”

    Excellent location for Divers looking to dedicate their time to log bulk bottom times. The staff in the dive shop were outstanding and as a group of four we were able to pick any dives sites we liked with our awesome guide Nichael. The only fault of this resort is their is no common area to sit at if you do not intend to be within the restaurant. This makes it awkward when you bring your own food and drink back to the resort as the restaurant staff get upset. All the resorts on this part of the beach are expensive so at some stage you will wish to do this. On the upside, the rooms are cleaned daily and the dive shop prices are the best on the island.

    It's a shack. Water smells like poo (island water). I slept with my jumper on. Typical cheap Philippines province/island hotel but not new or clean enough for my tastes. Probably more suited to backpackers or those used to hostels.

    Good stay, freindly personal, dailly cleanning, smell from the sevage in the room, the resort in NOT on the beach as was presented, WiFi is NOT in the room, it means the price is higher then it should be. It could be also disturbing the noise of compressor from dive shop in the resort area, but we understand we are divers.

    I've stayed there 3times already and it was great for me. All staffs are friendly and kindly to me and diveshop also great. There is perfect place in malapascua for all divers. Im sure I will come back here again and again. but unfortunately, some group of guests were so noisy at the restaurant even in the early morning or night time, but that's not resort's fault. I love there.

    Nice place, very close to beach and resturants.”

    The resort isn't exactly beachfront, there is a small path to get t the beach from the front of the resort, maybe 30m. It's very close to other restaurants and dive shops along the beach. We didn't use the dive shop or the restaurant so can't comment on either. The staff at the bar were always helpful. We stayed in an air conditioned room. The only issue I had was the hot water in the shower would randomly switch on and off. Not such a big deal considering how hot the weather was. Room was clean and comfortable otherwise.

    No facilities but what do you want? They had diving classes(but no pool) but I don't dive. It's literally right on the beach so you can swim there. Room was very nice and spacious with good shower and very good aircon. Staff were nice and happy /helpful, we only ate there once but the food was ok 👍👍

    Great Stay”

    #1 is the Owners & Staff being so nice and helpful providing great service. #2 would be the drinks especially the Weng Weng :) #3 the laid back atmosphere.

    My stay was fantastic. Everyone from the owners to the hotel and dive staff were very nice and caring to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. The room was great as was the food and drinks. The diving was ok and I hope the sharks continue to come as the remaining reefs since the typhoon were not all that great. The locals with the help of the resort owners need to realize that they have to take care of their money maker...the water and environment. On one dive there were probably a dozen D size batteries laying on the bottom. We also went snorkeling in front of the resort and the bottom again had trash all over. If it was not for the thresher sharks this would not be a dive destination I would go to again. Someone should educate the local population on the importance of keeping the waters and reefs clean today so they can be enjoyed in the future. Establish a regular volunteer cleanup of the bottom to get all of the trash out.

    Shakes, Location, Staff

    My stay at the Little Mermaid was great. The location is good, it's tucked in a little bit from the beachfront(just a few steps away). The restaurant/bar area is very nice and the shakes are awesome. Prices were very reasonable. The room was clean and spacious. Had everything I needed and was freshened daily. Staff and manager were very friendly and helpful. Only complaint is the local roosters woke me up a few times cock-a-doodle-dooing, but that's hard to avoid on the island. Would book again for sure.

    Location, food and dive staff.

    Location was excellent, just off the busy beach path - gives privacy with only 30seconds to the beach. Room was good size, comfy bed, good (but cold) shower. Only problem, roosters to the back of the rooms are very noisy! Not something that can be helped though, they are everywhere on the island!

    Diving courses, the staff and the quality of food

    I think they are doing a big effort to improve small details in the resort, but in fact you're paying less money than in other touristic places in Philippines, so in my opinion, I recommend this hotel if you want a be in a quiet and good hotel. I want thanks specially Manfred, the general manager and Roland, the diver instructor.

    A good spot with nice food and an awesome Beach bar

    We stayed over Chinese new year when prices were slightly higher right across the island but Sunsplash was great value for money. We had arranged diving separately and didn't dive with Sunsplash so cant comment on that. The staff of teh hotel/restaurant/bar are all really lovely and the food was good if a little more expensive than some of the more 'Local' places. One slight negative is the shower is a little lacking in power, due to the infrastructure on teh island, but our room had a large bucket provided which was really good to use for filling up and using to supplement the shower. I would deinitely stay here again the next time we come back to the Island.

    the private boat left us just in front of the resort, which has inside a diving facility - but non working - and the night has the chance to eat on the beach. The german proprietor is very kind and the personnel too. some problems with the maintenance: for instance the water heather of the shower was broken and has not been repaired; the same for the safe, with malfunctions. anyway some easy days
