We stayed at this resort for 5 nights last week. Got a good price for one of the wee rooms at the back of the resort with breakfast included. The resort it's self is a bit run down and in need of attention. Our room was basic but bed was comfortable. The bathroom was useable but no toilet seat. Cold...

The moment you arrive at the wharf , almost every person who work in the boat will try and do their best to screw you up.... we had reservation at blue water and our reservation was given to other person. You can't trust the personnel in charge... she send us to the most unimaginable place to go.. the room was...

It is right on the beach and is the first resort you'll see when you get off the boat. Now it's new name is ScubaCrew Blue Water Resort cuz a Chinese diving team is running the business there and a new pool has just been done. Rooms are named after diving sites around the island so you can choose one...

My dad has stayed here in this resort everytime he travels to Malapascua over the last 15 years. It is my first trip here and i have thoroughly enjoyed myself.

First of all, don't go to Malapascua unless you are diving. The beach is covered with boats all along. It could have been beautiful 20 years ago but the overdevelopment has killed it. The sand is dirty with debris and most of the palm trees have gone. This resort must be the worst in the place. It was a small...

Good value at 800p. Has an attached diving place. Rooms have poor ventilation - there was a nice breeze outside but the room stayed warm and stuffy because it couldn't get in. If you like to hover in a deluxe rpom, it's probably not the best place, but if you want good location and value, and don't spend much time...

Because it's a dive haven, Malapascua isn't cheap, especially if you want to stay on Bounty Beach. Accommodation at $20 or under is usually off the beach, which means no views and no sea breeze. We were there in low season, so we convinced the folks at Blue Water to give us a room for 700P/night. It was nothing special,...

I stayed here for 5 nights after having looked at another 15 or so places to stay on this island. The choice on the island isn't great - you either get rooms that are really overpriced or really far from the beach. When I found this place I was really happy with the quality of the rooms and agreed straight...
