Nice stay in a room near the dive shops and the beach but far from the hustle and bustle ”
We spent a few nights in a nice room far from the noise of compressors/dogs/motorbike traffic. The lid karaoke from the nearby local market was clearly audible from about 18.00 to 22.30 when luckily the whole island shuts down for the night. The window is screened and is one of the few we had in the Philippines to be solidly soundproof. The room was big enough for all our gear, with a nice veranda overlooking the small but very tidy garden. The bathroom was clean, with saltish water, a feature common to all the hotels on Malapasqua, according to people we met there. We had hot water every day except for a couple of early mornings. The staff is friendly and helpful (a broken bulb was charged in a few minutes after we reported it). You can refill water bottles at the kitchen gallon for 20 peso/bottle: the money goes straight to the staff tip box. Breakfast was tasty and abundant. Recommended.
Dear Lorenzo, we are super happy reading your review and your very good rating. Thank you very much for your visit - would be a pleasure welcoming you again. Greetings from MGR
Like a hidden gem ”
Walking into this “resort” with the bungalows around a very beautiful garden, was a nice surprise compared to the other hotels/resorts I passed by. A very warm welcome from the owner made you feel like at home. All the staff was very friendly and helpful as well. WiFi is very slow, but you’re on a remote island. What do you expect ? Having a Philippine tourist sim from Globe is advisable for those who can’t live without social media. Some small suggestions that might improve the guest experience with only minor expenses : - clean the rooms daily. Now it’s only done upon request. There is enough staff anyway so it wouldn’t increase the labor cost. Swiftly mopping around and make up the bed doesn’t take more then 15 minutes. - provide two small bottles a day per bungalow. Drinks are not expensive in the resort, but 2 complimentary water bottles is common in this price range. - a hammock. Reading a book in the evening in a hammock here would make it perfect. 😎
Dear Pascal, we are thankful you had a good time with us. Was a pleasure having you here, Thank you for the detailed feedback and the rating. Our staff has the order to clean every day (exept you put the sign on the door "Please don't disturb". Sorry that it wasn't done every day. Because of the plastic problem in the ocean, we don't provide water bottless every day. To put hamomocks is a good idea. Greetings from MGR
Clean, good breakfast choices and the staff accommodated me well, specially to the hotel owner. They made sure my concern has been taken care of (to book my 2nd day on the spot) as I just booked one day accommodation prior my tour. They transferred me to another room for my 2nd day and just matched the rate that I got for my 1st room for day 1. Thank you Malapascua Garden Resort! :)
Dear Winchelle, we are pleased to see you enjoyed your visit in our resort. Thanks for your stay - hope to see you again. Greetings from MGR
We planned to stay in Malapascua for five days... we loved our bungalow and the staff so much we ended up being there for almost two weeks! An incredible experience due largely in part to the caring nature of the management of the resort. Thank you for enhancing our time on the island. Don & Michelle
Dear Don & Michelle, we are very thankful that you spend & enjoyed so many great days with us. Was a big pleasure having you here and it would be wonderful to have many guests like you. Hopefully you come back again. Greetings from MGR.
The Myths of Malapascua!”
Can you obtain cash? There is a restaurant on the beach that charges a 10% commission. We decided to extend our trip so this was so worth the fee. Is the resort far from the beach? Logon, Bounty, and Langob are all in walking distance from the property. Langob is breathtaking and swimming in the cove is so refreshing. The resort can organize boats or days trips. The rooms and grounds are stunning. The service is on point. The breakfast is delicious. The wifi works very well. Is Malapascua only for divers? Not at all! The Malapascua Garden Resor has the feel of an international village hosted by a caring staff that takes pride in their rooms and grounds. We feel so fortunate to have stayed with them for they have taken care of us almost as if we are family.
Dear Don, we are super happy reading your review and your rating. Thank you so much.
great place ”
we stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. rooms are very comfortable and clean and having a balcony was a bonus. the owner and staff were very help full at any time of the day. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Thank you Anat for recommending our resort and your very good rating. Was a pleasure having you here and we hope we meet twice. Greetings from MGR
the place is in the middle of the island ... but i like it ”
it feel like home your in central of the community near at market good food and affortable place to eat outside the hotel, great staff, basic breakfast. but i really enjoyed our stay. 3 days in the island is enough
Dear Eugene, thanks for staying with us and leaving very good feedback. Would be a pleasure welcoming you again - Greetings from MGR.
Very happy stay !”
Rooms are very clean and service is very good. Location was perfect for us : close to the dive center and the market. I would not hesitate to stay there again should i have the chance to go back to Malapascua !
Dear Paline, we are very excited reading your review and your very good rating. Thank you very much for your visit - would be a pleasure welcoming you again. Greetings from MGR.
Room is cozy and clean. Love the bed. The place is peaceful. You can really relax. However, the bathroom’s sink is a bit rusty and can easily hear people’s convo in the next room. The TV doesn’t have any signal. I think the cable subscription was already expired. The location is a bit far from the beach. You need to walk for a few mins to reach the beachfront but the place is just near in the food market which is cheaper compare to the beachfront’s restaurants. Overall, I would still recommend the place. They have excellent customer service! They were able to arrange us a trip to Kalanggaman Island on the day itself. We were so grateful for that.
Dear Jhoanna, thank you very much for your stay and leaving a good feedback for us. Sorry that the TV didn't have a signal. Greetings from Ocean Vida Resort
Had a very pleasant stay!”
Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful! I felt totally comfortable and welcome. The room was cleaned every day, furniture and all interior were in a pretty good condition. I can totally recommend to stay at this nice and pleasant resort.
Had a great time here with such a warm welcome from Luz, her family and team. We were so touched to be invited to spend Christmas eve with them, thank you so much! The property is a little slice of heaven, just 5 mins from the beach and near restaurants. Room was clean with great facilities and a lovely balcony to sit on at the end of the day. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
Dear Emma, we are so happy you had a good time with us and we could make the best out of your stay with MGR Vida. Thank you for your visit and your very good review. Come and visit us again. Greetings from Malapascua
Excellent service and amazing hotel”
The staff was very friendly. The room was big and clean. The bed was so comfy. It was very close to the dive centre sea slug. Literally 2 mins walk. We will stay in this hotel again for sure.
Dear Yuju, we are super happy reading your very good review and your rating. Thank you very much for your visit - would be a pleasure welcoming you again. Greetings from MGR

Great In the middle of the island ”
Great stay here, in the middle so you walk through the local area to get there. Lovely grounds and a host who will do anything for you 5 stars from me
Dear Ian, we're happy about your very good rating and review for our resort. Come back again! Greetings from MGR.
Best resort on island ”
Beautiful resort very well taken care of lots of flowers and trees. Quiet, big room ( we had the best room available) fridge, a.c. was very cold, satilight tv. my wife and i extended our stay an extra 3 days as we enjoyed our stay that much. Staff are very nice and acomadating , good food ,mango shakes are yummy. We will be staying here again soon :-)
Clean and spacious room. Tasty breakfast. Personnel is friendly. I can't recommend ask the lady at the desk for transportation (I don't mean the owner, she is fair). The lady at the desk offer very, very overpriced transportation and probably trips.
We enjoyed the place it was very clean and the people from Canada who said that there was bed bug are liers.As Canadian ourselves we highly recommend this beautiful MGR.It’s 5minutes walk from the beach front,The owner always did the best for helping us,We also recommand Gin Gin Resto next door but avoid ice...Angelina is abiT further but serves excellent food but more expensive than the later
It was nice stay. Rooms and territory around really clean, staff always are happy to assist as much as they can. Only two things I may recommend to improve: 1) make a playground for kids 2) prepare some light dinner or snacks
Well maintained property”
Satisfied with our stay in this property. Friendly staff - except for the girl in the front desk who does not know how to smile, quite neighborhood, well groomed exterior and very clean rooms. The resort is 10 minutes away from the beach which is not bad at all. Food can be improved. Overall, i would highly recommend this property! 9/10
Malapascua Garden Resort is a beautiful hotel with clean spacious rooms, comfortable beds, very nice garden and relaxing atmosphere that you'd enjoy hanging around. Breakfast selection was good. The owners are very welcoming and personally attend to the guests. This is one of the resorts that's worth every money spent. Wish we stayed longer.
