    PAID FOR BREAKFAST = 7.00 USD. More dive sites. Gato Island = the same dive sites each time. Vary it!

    SLOWLY, it works EXTREMELY SLOWLY!!!!!!!!!!!! There’s ZERO bars on the wi-fi notice-that’s on the bottom of the page = taskbar. I’m suppose to get a new router? It takes 1:26:00 to send ONE Email!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Friday February 7, 2020 there IS NO internet. I was suppose to get a used router YESTERDAY, (they said) & they NEED to CHARGE IT UP! Why Not charge it up yesterday so I can use it? It’s Saturday at 5:35 AM There IS NO internet. I have the used router & IT’S CHARGED BUT NO internet. It’s on BUT???? FINALLY, it started BUT I takes OVER 10 minutes to connect to the internet. I’M STOPPING NOW!! On Saturday, after diving, (17:30) I had a router (used) to use. I would NOT work. It worked for 2 minutes & then DEAD! 6 (Six) days NO internet! Sunday; I moved to reception….so far it works. The I moved to the restaurant AND everyone works their internet/laptop there. Note; It takes on February 5, 2020 to download something OVER a HOUR to download 8.9 MB. (That’s Mega-Bytes). I give the data about downloading 8.9 MB; It’s failed OVER 5 times, it takes 10-60 kbs OR LESS to download, 3” left, 5” left, 6” left, 1.2 hours left & on & on & on & on. In reality it download speed is from .6 kbs (That is point 6 kbs < 1 kbs) to anywhere from (IF the internet works) to 50-60 kbs. (That IS kilobytes per second). SOLUTION Equals UPGRADE the Internet!!!!!!!! I want to use the internet/Wi-Fi in my room NOT in the restaurant OR reception! I want to use it while listening to music & podcasts of MY own kind. Let’s PRETEND; EVERYONE (ALL Customers) IS on the internet (Wi-Fi). Let’s PRETEND; EVERYONE it’s a holiday; NO diving, ALL people including the dive crew are ON the internet. Then let’s make the internet (Wi-Fi) for ALL to use!

    Nice to relax and enjoy at the beach. The diving staff was great and we had lots of fun diving with you guys.

    The way to get there is a little bit far from the town, it takes around 20-25 mins walk through the village. The cabana was OK, lots of mosquitoes. The food was expensive and the atmosphere is just okay.

    Staff is very friendly. Happy hour is nice, only they bring you 2 drinks at the time so if you are by yourself you drink second when it's not cold anymore. They should keep track or something and not bring you 2 at the same time if you dont request it. Beds are quite big. Food is nice

    Salty water for shower. No fresh water at all. I understand that is an island but I have been in many islands and I have never encountered to find this problem before. Also they promote free moto rides but it's a lie. Thay keep giving excuses. So no, they dont have free moto rides. It's a bit pricey for what they offer. There is 1 bathroom in the room for 8 people. If you want to use other you have to go out of the room and in my case go through restaurant and bar to get to the free toilet. They could add some curtains for privacy. It was only 1 plug for all 8 people in the room.. a nightmare

    Thresher Cove Dive Resort in Malapascua Island Longon, Malapascua Island 6013 Cebu I booked with someone & it’s all paid. I added breakfast on February 3, 2020. I stayed here 11 days. It takes 30-35 minutes to get from Maya. You have to transfer from a large boat to a small boat to get to shore. It costs 20 Pesos.Then it takes “about” 20-30 minutes to get to the resort by motorcycle. It’s on the far part of the island. Everything and everything is on the far part of the island. The resort has; a dormitory, deluxe & executive rooms, swimming pool, restaurant, so-called fitness centre (I saw a one machine with some weights set by), close by beach & breakfast (IF you pay for it). Later I paid for it. ($7.00 USD) The breakfast is a choice. (See pictures/photos). There is a menu. You get 1 item. I had an omelet, 1 piece of toast & a cup of black coffee. Tuesday I added a fruit plate to my breakfast. The room has; a queen size bed, a mini-fridge with drinks that I not buy, a small flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a small safety box, a larger cabinet for clothes, 3 small cabinets, one desk, coffee, tea, sugar & cups, one small desk & a balcony with some place you can sit (a lounge). The TV has an USB connection that did NOT work either! Neither music, photos or movies/videos. I had someone explain the USB connection. It works now. The bathroom has; 2 towels, 2 tissues, 2 small soaps & shampoo & a hot water shower. FYI; Thresher Cove Dive Resort takes USD & EU cash BUT they charge 10% AND they take credit cards BUT they charge 5%. Please note Malapascua is a small island & fresh water has to be shipped from the mainland, wells on the island sometimes have salty water OR brackish water. You have to shampoo JUST about everyday. Added; On the way here from Maya (boat); it takes a motorcycle (50 Pesos) about 7-10 minutes to get to the resort.

    The Wi-fi Internet is pretty terrible, man. It takes 5-7 minutes OR MORE to check an email AT A MINIMUM! I stayed here for two weeks. I came on February 3, 2020. I did NOT use the internet on Monday. On Tuesday there is NO internet (Wi-Fi). They gave an option for 1 day TC Premium with a password. That did NOT work either! Wednesday & Thursday did NOT work! On Friday, after diving I was suppose to get the wi-fi; SLOWLY, it works EXTREMELY SLOWLY!!!!!!!!!!!! There’s ZERO bars on the wi-fi notice-that’s on the bottom of the page = taskbar. I’m suppose to get a new router? It takes 1:26:00 to send ONE Email!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Friday February 7, 2020 there IS NO internet.

    Very professional, well organised Diving Center with experimented dive instructors (I passed my PADI there and saw my first Thresher shark on the fourth day with the French instructor Steven, he is great !)

    Water in the bathroom smells chlore or salt water.
