    Pleasant accommodation”

    Very pleasant accommodation, nice atmosphere. It was nice to sit on your own little balcony and enjoy warm evening. Clean room and surroundings. Only five minute walk from Bounty Beach and about 10 min walk from public ferry. Also about 5-10 min walk at the center of the island where you can find local food market.

    Not recommend! Very bad experience ”

    Room: NEVER consider the fan room! It’s really like oven, when I got in, it’s 35 degree, and the heat is stuck whole day in the room even at nite which really made me unable to breath, couldn’t sleep for two days. The outside temperature was at least 5 degree less then in the room. I checked out one day earlier cuz i couldn’t stand anymore. The water in the pool also very hot like hot spring which makes you don’t want stay in the water. Staff: rude staffs, unexpected things happened many times, this hotel really lack a good management team to manage it properly especially staffs’ training. Unwelcome posts everywhere: there are totally 6 posts in the room to tell guests DONT to this, don’t do that otherwise you will be fined.... Would really recommend spend same money to stay at the beach front hotels. Malapascua is a beautiful island, however, I made wrong decision to stay here!

    Great place to stay and relax”

    Slams is a very nice place to stay. We don’t dive so we were on the island to take the tour of Kalanggaman Island. We stayed at Slams for 3 nights and loved it. The pool gives it a true resort feeling and the place itself is new and updated. I would stay there again and would certainly recommend it to others. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and the food at the restaurant was great. Their happy hour drinks were killers. We both loved their Long Island Iced Tea.

    Decent resort, lovely staff”

    The resort is ok, the room is spacious and clean, the bed is comfortable and the breakfast was good too. But in terms of value for money, the resort is not doing that well. For $45 a night one would expect way better and anywhere else in Southeast Asia, would get better. Although, accommodations being overpriced in the Philippines is not uncommon, the resort should not price its rooms in this range or significantly improve its services and/ or update its facilities. Other than the value for money aspect, we had a lovely stay, we felt we were looked after and for those who are not price sensitive, we would recommend the resort.

    A relaxing place with a nice pool, comfortable spacious rooms and very friendly and helpful staff - good choice to come here. Take it with humor that the owner is very fond of plastering the whole place with countless notifications about do's and don'ts. The dive shop of the resort - Ocean Passion - has just been opened up. Although the main part of it is still under construction the first steps towards giving customers a good dive experience make you keen to come back.

    It is a kingdom of rules and penalties”

    The hotel is very clean, good maintained, nice pool and overall is good. However, there are so many signs everywhere what you cannot do and how much you will charged if you do not follow the rules that is ridiculous and makes you feel uncomfortable. You have to sign a list of like 10 rules to follow during check in, then there is like 6-7 big signs by the pool explaining what to do (3-4 signs, don’t through cigarette butts, big list of pool rules, wash your feed sign etc). In your room you will find another 3 lists of rules with penalties up to 5000 pesos. If you go to restaurant there you will find signs everywhere that you have to pay 500 pesos in case you bring your own bottle of alcohol and just in case you might miss it, here you go, there is one more sign on every table. In addition there is another list of rules on same tables - for example you cannot sit there after 10 pm (that is the only place you get wifi). It is just funny :)) What we did not like: - salty water in shower; - rooms are impossible to stay only with the fan, you have to upgrade to AC (800 pesos per day). Actually all rooms have AC, but it will not work unless you pay 800, so take in account that price is actually higher that Agoda shows; - they have buy 1 get 1 free hours, but yes, there is a trick. Prices are different during these hours, so you actually not getting 1 free :))))

    Stayed here for 3 nights while we did some diving. Breakfast was great and service was speedy despite what some reviews said. Rooms were clean, and staff cleaned the rooms each day and changed our towels. If you're going to Malapascua to dive, don't hesitate to stay at this resort. A short walk away are also some great Thai and Italian restaurants.

    It was perfectly designed for a good relaxation in the Island.”

    There are several resorts/hotels around Malapascua, from low-end to high-end. If you are looking value for money leisure, I think Slam has the edge. It may not be located fronting the beach, but it is not that far to the Bounty Beach area. It is also near the port/pier.
