9.0 Excellent
Pros: An elegant, perfectly managed, cozy little family-run resort. You do not want to miss the sunset from one of those deluxe cottages, the view worth the trip. The design of the whole structure is extremely well integrated in the surrounding nature. Merit note to the kitchen too, both restaurants would deserve another plause! Well done guys!

Cons: Don’t expect any luxury. Rooms could be a bit more updated.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: There's a small beach. A bit rocky but you don't need to go far to reach deep water. Good for those solo swimmers who want to stay near the shore. The resort looks very organic. It blends well with the surroundings. Love the free breakfast. I love the pizza next door too. Love the friendly hosts. Love the cats who sunbathed with me. I love the dogs too, even if they wanted to pee on the sunbed.

Pros: The area the greens colour everywhere you walk. The private pool. Privacy.
Cons: The beach wasn't clean due the tide I guess. They need to have more activities.
6.7 Good
Pros: Great location and wonderful service
Cons: Prices were very high
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing facilities - tennis courts, well equipped gym, swimming pool, clean private beach. Stayed in garden villa which was a beautiful room to lounge around in.
Cons: As it's a resort, it has all the usual advantages (beautiful surroundings, great facilities) & disadvantages...it's not really walking distance from town. Food & drink is overpriced compared to local average (~400PHP main meal, 150PHP beer) but not as horribly expensive as other resorts.
7.0 Good
Pros: friendly and accommodating staff
Cons: checked-in to our room an hour late , got to the resort at around 2:20 got in our room at 3:30 bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness - sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries on, really! the resort needs to re-think their resort menu , breakfast included , its the same item everyday
7.0 Good
Pros: - the private pool in the Garden villa - perfect for honeymooners - staff are well trained - very high level
Cons: - nothing to do around. We appreciated how calm the resort was but we got bored after 2 days. - the hotel makes you believe that the "city" is far and suggests to call a tricycle for you. They charge 200 pesos (4 min drive). When we got out on our own, we paid 20. I'm not sure why the hotel does this anyways. We want to reassure everyone- go our on your own, it's safe and cheap. Also, very cheap to eat in town (why limit yourself to the hotel restaurant?). - Activities and day trips are too expensive. Very disappointing. - although this is not the hotel's fault, the weather was coudy and rainy when we stayed. We could not enjoy the water activities included in our package (kayak + paddle) and the hotel did not have anything else to offer. - we asked the hotel to leave 1 day earlier because we were really bored and had nothing to do - they had nothing to offer. - we booked the room months in advance. When we got there, we saw that the rooms were half the price - maintenance: too many works going on in the hotel - too noisy and too many workers on site - we had to change our villa because the bathroom's door could not be closed. The staff was very helpful and helped us move on the second day but still - what a waste of time. To conclude, it was a dream stay for our honeymoon, but too expensive at the end of the day
6.7 Good
Pros: Friendly and accommodating staff Spacious room Quiet and not crowded resort
Cons: Arrived at resort 2:20 got keys to our room at 3:30 Bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness- sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries, really? Poolside was dangerous for slip and fall, materials used are nice but not appropriate for pool side Food was okay but does not meet 5star hotel criteria Btw, got pricked by a name plate left under bed covers, was going to report but somebody took nameplate from bedside table Again waited a day and an hour before the Karaoke was being set up

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Gerd and her wife were very friendly to me and made me feel very confortable! The location is amazing, literally in front of the sea surrounded by palm trees and banana plants! A nice place to chill and relax yourself!
Cons: I recommend to get there during daylight, in the evening everything is very dark (few lights) and it is much difficult to find.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I like the place cuz its quiet since there are no other guest. The room was clean and neat. They also serve food which is very convenient for us and its affordable. You can also cook your own food cuz theres a kitchen outside. The place were really accessible. The place were really good for those people who want to relax from the busy and crowded city. The owner were also really accomodating and a good man. One of the best experience i guess was while having our breakfast in front of the nice view of beach.

Breakfast is good and the staff are very accommodating. Our flight was delayed, I contacted Mike the owner and was able to move my reservation to the next day without any problems. Anything you need just ask Mike. Will definitely stay here next time.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Friendly staff and nice location..... but it is a long walk with luggage when you arrive by boat.
Cons: The resort looked nice and I can only assume most were. I was given a horrible room at the back of the resort with low ceiling and cramped strange layout. Seemed like it was a storage room turned into a bad bedroom.. it should not be rented out for guests and certainly not what was advertised on the booking site.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful. Big family room, big balcony, peaceful. Beachfront with nice powder white sand. Overall quiet area of Malapascua.
Cons: No bar or food besides a really good breakfast on site. But the night restaurant market was a close walk. The family room has its bathroom on the stairwell between 1st and 2nd floor, so had to go outside each time. But it was our own.
6.7 Good
Pros: It was a bit of a walk from where I left off of a boat but because of that it was very calm and beach front place. All the staff working here is very friendly and always helpful.
Cons: The next door local neighbor was very active from early in the morning and I’d wake up with banging noises and/or smells of burning smokes every morning. No hot shower avail and the water can be pretty cold if the day wasn’t hot enough to warm the water in the tank. a mosquito net over the bed had several holes and blood stains and didn’t work very well. The room had full of them.

7.9 Good
Pros: Huge room
Cons: Wrong location on booking its actually on the other side of the island, staff wasn't really so nice as other places we have been in the Philippines, the water from the sink is from the sea so they are really satly and also has wierd smell
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very large room with wooden floor and stone walls, nice big terrace overlooking the bay. Close to everything Access to private beach with best sunset!
Cons: Our room was located above the restaurant so it was a bit noicy at night until the kitchen had closed. That was the only negative point
5.4 Okay
Pros: Size of the room.Good food in the restaurant, good massage.
Cons: Location that was far from relaxing beach, you need to take a motorcycle with a driver to get to normal beach without all the boats parked. Atmosphere wasn’t very friendly, no contact with the hotel staff my impression was that they didn’t care. No information about no available boats on day of check out because of bad weather.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice spacious rooms. Covered balcony. Good Italian restaurant on site. Good breakfast. Staff were nice and helpful when my wife was not feeling well.
Cons: Wifi good most of time, but it would sometimes cut out completely for several hours. Water from tap and shower was a little salty.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location is just right. Far enough from the loud parties on the island and close to a secluded white beach facing the sunset. High tide means you have a beach 50 steps from the hotel. Low tide means you walk 50 steps up a hill and 50 down to get to the above-mentioned beach.
Cons: Since the island is small, and other properties are private, it would work best if owners would show you: 1- How to get to the other side of the hill (which properties have not agreed to serve as thoroughfares) 2- Have a drone pic at front desk showing the beach area that can be used by guests on the other side of the hill. You get there and are "welcomed" by people telling you it is a private beach - but Angelina's staff tell you there is an area a guest can use. Show me which area I'm allowed to go and spare me the uncomfortable conversation with people who rightfully demand you do not use their private beach.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had a great stay during the circumstances, as the tyfoon Ursula passed the island. Yes, we had a leak that wet our bed, but we got a new room and yes there was a loss of power and water during the aftermath, but it was the same for most people on the island. But we really think we got the best experience possible. And we got help with transfer as planned despite so many boats were damaged. The food is great at the restaurant and the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Definitely recommended

Busog kaayo ko ☺️ Very affordable and I would like to come back here. You guys made me smile by your great services . I love the hostel too. See you again! I’ll definitely book again :)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location, the facilities
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Location is good.
Cons: I'm not the person that complains a lot. But this room was the biggest money waste ever. 1. The room is WAY too expensive for what it is. For the same amount, you can have a nicer private room with hot shower in the immediate vicinity. Two of the four private rooms don't have windows and we got one without. The bathroom is very tiny. Water of the sink and shower taste really strange (salty?) so we were brushing our teeth with drinking water. The bathroom door couldn't close totally so the intimacy wasn't great when it came to going to the toilet. It looks and feels like a prison room. 2. The staff was so unfriendly. I asked for the wifi password on my 2nd day I was there and they didn't want to give it to me because it was only for guests although we booked a room. There were just 2 staff sitting there, looking at me like I came from mars, not trying to help me at all. 3. Rooftop is nice and big but very expensive for a hostel, has no atmosphere and the wifi is not included there... So nice when you want to book a flight with a beer... On the main common area on the ground floor, I think there were supposed to be chairs and small tables but they were covered (i guess because of the typhoon that was there a few days before) and none of the staff did the effort to put the things back so this space could be at least a spot where you could meet people. I'm used to stay in cheap and shitty places, but if i pay this amount of money i expect at least a bit of comfort. Biggest dissapointment ever for me and my friend.

Pros: one of the best resorts in malapascua. no regrets on this hotel. the location is good. considering that we were on an island of malapascua, i dont mind that there is no tv inside the room, or the running water is salty and you get to pay p20 for a refill of mineral water (1liter). Slams is a good deal considering its price, amenities and very nice staff. upon check in, we were given an overflowing welcome drinks. our rooms are clean and comfy. my room is a family room, 2nd fl, facing the pool, with superb AC. it has great view and have a mini sala/ terrace, for smoking or drying your wet suits. they provide toiletries, too. the free plated breakfast that goes with our accom, have a generous serving plus the drink that goes with it. they have good options for breakfast and its drink. the swimming pool is well-maintained and i like it's depth (good for diving practice and for swimming). actually, the resort itself is always clean. staff walk barefoot at the cafe, wherein, guests also follow suit even if it's not required. they have darts and tv at the cafe. the dogs are all sooo cute, especially Cookie. most importantly, you will feel the warmth and hospitality of the staff. no wonder, guests are also nice. good vibes flows in Slams. i highly recommend Slams! more power!

My room was right in front of the sea so you get to wake up in front of the Sunrise :) Breakfast is amazing & brewed coffee is spot on! Staff really makes you feel at home and well taken care of. Perfect for divers to do either fun dives and/or dive courses. Special shoutout to Ruben who coached me into an advanced diver! Great dives and I saw sharks & cuttlefish, will definitely recommend to friends!
Cons: Bathrooms are a bit basic & WiFi is weak... But I guess it is a good digital detox! As with most accommodation in the Philippines, there is no hot water, so it's always a good idea to shower before sunset...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were there during a cyclone on Christmas Day. The manager and staff were amazing at keeping everyone safe, fed and organized. All the guests helped to clean up the mess after the storm and we were all fed for free with food ordered and delivered from town. I’m so happy with how they took such good care of everyone! There’s a great little beach, nice pool, great diving and the restaurant serves delicious food. Would definitely stay here again!
Cons: The beach toilet and shower could use a little love
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff team! From start to finish, excellent professional and friendly service. That's across the board from cleaners, front of house and the dive staff. Diving: excellent, good equipment, great range of dive sites, very good local knowledge of dive sites and particularly where to find threshers in the low chance you don't at the traditional spots...#govik!! So much fun had and the boat is comfortable and perfect for surface intervals ensuring comfort! Hot drinks/water and fruit supplied. Facilities: big pool can be used when no classes are on and a few sun lounges. Lovely food at the onsite restaurant and happy hrs! Oh there's a wee gym outside too! The resort is on a lovely private beach. I was there just before Christmas and was glad to see the resort throw a party for all staff and families, it was so much fun!!! Dorms and lovely private bungalows available. Loved every minute of my time there so much I extended and stayed for around a week or so when was only meant for 3 nights. Thankyou to All of the team, I had the perfect stay, was very relaxed and the diving was simply Awesome. Highly recommended if heading to Malapascua. Until next time!
Cons: Nothing to write about here! **suggestion: Oh, maybe a few hammocks dotted about would be a great addition! Particularly near/on the beach to chill on an evening.
6.7 Good
Pros: Staff was super friendly and the location was great. A bit hidden from the crowds but easy to reach the center in case you want to go to restaurants etc..
Cons: It’s hard to give a negative feedback, since I was there right after a typhoon hit the island terribly. However, after things got a bit more normal I would say that breakfast is slightly overpriced for what they offer and the place could be cleaner for sure, specially the bathroom.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great accommodation with own dive center. If you are not a diver, it is not really a resort for you. Due to the typhoon the resort had a lot of damage. The General Manager and the staff helped us all the time, they did a great job during the typhoon. The rooms are very clean and it is easy to take a motorbike from the resort to bounty beach and vice versa. The divemasters and instructors and the Padi-ladies are very professional, give you a lot of information and have 1 rule: Safety first!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly Stuff!! And the Dive Instructer was perfect! We will come again!

Pros: An elegant, perfectly managed, cozy little family-run resort. You do not want to miss the sunset from one of those deluxe cottages, the view worth the trip. The design of the whole structure is extremely well integrated in the surrounding nature. Merit note to the kitchen too, both restaurants would deserve another plause! Well done guys!

Cons: Don’t expect any luxury. Rooms could be a bit more updated.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: There's a small beach. A bit rocky but you don't need to go far to reach deep water. Good for those solo swimmers who want to stay near the shore. The resort looks very organic. It blends well with the surroundings. Love the free breakfast. I love the pizza next door too. Love the friendly hosts. Love the cats who sunbathed with me. I love the dogs too, even if they wanted to pee on the sunbed.

7.1 Good
Pros: I liked the bright resort and the little oasis they’ve created. Comfortable room. Good banana pancakes for breakfast.
Cons: The aircon stopped working on our last night and they said they couldn’t fix it, which was disappointing as it was very hot. Our room had a leak that ran inside the cupboard so all our clothes got wet. They didn’t seem too concerned about this when I pointed it out. The lady at reception who served us breakfast most days was not very friendly.

Pros: Excellent place and stuff!!!!!
Cons: Not swimming pool
6.7 Good
Pros: Property was lush with lots of plants, greenery. Looks like a garden.

Overview Reviews
When you stay at Malapascua Starlight Resort in Daanbantayan, you'll be by the ocean, within a 10-minute walk of Bounty Beach and Daanbantayan Ferry Port. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Easy to get to, a 5/6 minute walk from the beach. The room was very clean and spacious, with a good sized balcony and the bed was a great size. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and there is a water refill at the desk for relatively little money.
Cons: The location is central and close to a late night eating/karaoke area which means there’s always some noise until 10 or 11pm. There is a party on the island regularly, although it does move location it can be heard from here quite often, not great if you’re on an early dive.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice and spacious room, so clean and nice, aircon working so good. Bathroom so clean and big. Location very good, just in front of the market, but is not noisy, at least the days we were there, you are close to all but inside the hotel is so quiet. Nice private terrace and hamacs that you can use. They don’t have a speciall place for dry your clothes, but if you ask they give you one portable where you can hang your clothes.
Cons: The staff is not so friendly. The tv didn’t work the days we were there, they said they will fix the next day but they forgot every day.
6.0 Good
Pros: Each morning the staff prepared a nice breakfast. This included the morning after the typhoon. It was quiet and I had a room that allowed the breezes in. When it was working, the AC was fine. It is directly opposite the market where there are excellent food stalls. The owner graciously refunded after there was no power for three days following the typhoon.
Cons: There are very loud discos nearly twice or more a week. These were mercifully silenced by the typhoon. When this happened, there was no preparation. Malapascua experienced Yolanda in 2013. The resort should have provided an 'emergency' kit of candles or torches or hurricane lamps and some bottles of water in case guests were confined to rooms longer than expected. Extra trowels to stop water flooding into rooms would also have been useful along with some basic safety instructions such as shutting bathroom louvre window. There was nothing. Surrounding establishments had power on the second day; not this resort. It has a generator but this is only for the house. They have installed solar panels but these take a week to bed in. The owner says she has not experienced a typhoon before. I think her staff/managers probably have and should have used their own initiative. Regardless of the typhoon, rooms are only cleaned on request and this is very limited: a sweep the floor, changing sheets and towels but not always the waste paper basket.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Large clean room, if you needed anything the girl on reception was very helpful. Lovely location right next to market and a short distance from the beach - bring a flashlight if doing the walk back at night!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room was nice and spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the staff were very helpful and able to answer any questions we had. The location is right in the middle of town which was great also and a stone's throw from the beach.
Cons: The shower was a little low pressure
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very central - just near the night market. Organized a private ferry to Maya after public boats did not run anymore.
Cons: Room was full of mosquitoes upon check in - had to ask to spray the room to get rid of them. Low light in room. Water refilling restricted to only 500ml bottles per refill. Had to leave 1 day earlier due to typhoon - no refund provided.

Pros: Very friendly staffs and owner, comfortable clean amd value for.money
Cons: I wish the location was closer to the beach
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Clean room, good shower, comfy bed, good A/C. Staff helped arrange transport to and from Cebu for a good price, and all was very smooth and comfortable. Good location - is only 5 minute walk to Bounty Beach which has many restaurants and dive shops.

Cons: Prices were very high
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing facilities - tennis courts, well equipped gym, swimming pool, clean private beach. Stayed in garden villa which was a beautiful room to lounge around in.
Cons: As it's a resort, it has all the usual advantages (beautiful surroundings, great facilities) & disadvantages...it's not really walking distance from town. Food & drink is overpriced compared to local average (~400PHP main meal, 150PHP beer) but not as horribly expensive as other resorts.
7.0 Good
Pros: friendly and accommodating staff
Cons: checked-in to our room an hour late , got to the resort at around 2:20 got in our room at 3:30 bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness - sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries on, really! the resort needs to re-think their resort menu , breakfast included , its the same item everyday
7.0 Good
Pros: - the private pool in the Garden villa - perfect for honeymooners - staff are well trained - very high level
Cons: - nothing to do around. We appreciated how calm the resort was but we got bored after 2 days. - the hotel makes you believe that the "city" is far and suggests to call a tricycle for you. They charge 200 pesos (4 min drive). When we got out on our own, we paid 20. I'm not sure why the hotel does this anyways. We want to reassure everyone- go our on your own, it's safe and cheap. Also, very cheap to eat in town (why limit yourself to the hotel restaurant?). - Activities and day trips are too expensive. Very disappointing. - although this is not the hotel's fault, the weather was coudy and rainy when we stayed. We could not enjoy the water activities included in our package (kayak + paddle) and the hotel did not have anything else to offer. - we asked the hotel to leave 1 day earlier because we were really bored and had nothing to do - they had nothing to offer. - we booked the room months in advance. When we got there, we saw that the rooms were half the price - maintenance: too many works going on in the hotel - too noisy and too many workers on site - we had to change our villa because the bathroom's door could not be closed. The staff was very helpful and helped us move on the second day but still - what a waste of time. To conclude, it was a dream stay for our honeymoon, but too expensive at the end of the day
6.7 Good
Pros: Friendly and accommodating staff Spacious room Quiet and not crowded resort
Cons: Arrived at resort 2:20 got keys to our room at 3:30 Bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness- sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries, really? Poolside was dangerous for slip and fall, materials used are nice but not appropriate for pool side Food was okay but does not meet 5star hotel criteria Btw, got pricked by a name plate left under bed covers, was going to report but somebody took nameplate from bedside table Again waited a day and an hour before the Karaoke was being set up

Pros: Everything was perfect
