9.0 Excellent
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.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The Food
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property is beautiful, well taken care of and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again. Be prepared for a 2 1/2 to 3 hour ride to/from the airport. We used the airport service provided by the resort and it was great - very comfortable and the driver was very nice.
Cons: We were a bit disappointed that they did not have a breakfast buffet as advertised, but we understand that we were there during the off-season and that is was just not feasible to have a buffet for the few guest that were there. The breakfast was still delicious and plentiful.
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
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: Staff were all very pleasant and very customer oriented. Food was good and the staff were great in restaurant .Location on the water is nice. Nice private beach.Security was very good as well. I would definitely stay there again.
Cons: A minor complaint is that we wi fi. Signal in the rooms could be better, I know it's a remote spot and wifi can't be expected to be always good. No real complaints about Thresher Cove
6.0 Good
Pros: PAID FOR BREAKFAST = 7.00 USD. More dive sites. Gato Island = the same dive sites each time. Vary it!
Cons: 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!
6.0 Good
Pros: Nice to relax and enjoy at the beach. The diving staff was great and we had lots of fun diving with you guys.
Cons: 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.
7.0 Good
Pros: 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
Cons: 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
6.0 Good
Pros: Hotel manager and reception staff were very interested. They satisfied me by producing an alternative solution at the time of problem solving about the room. They always showed their interests during my vacation at there. Literally this is a diving hotel and my diving experience was amazing. Both the equipment and the instructor were professional.
Cons: Horrible for transportation to the hotel. If you want to arrive at the Maya terminal, from airport to bus terminal you have to use taxi. It takes 30 minutes with respect to the traffic, where the ferry departing from the bus terminal to the island of malapascua, takes 4 to 5 hours, depending on the traffic again. The ferry takes 45 minutes. Is it over after reaching the island? No. The hotel is far from the center so you can reach it by motorcycle. Restaurant staff work to improve the quality of service, with the exception of a few staff. Even though the tastes of the meals fine in place, they can shorten the waiting time. Restaurant prices are extremely expensive compared to the rest of the island. There was not even a mirror in the toilet of the dorm room. Although room service regularly cleans, bathroom equipment looks dirty because it's too old.
6.0 Good
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.

Pros: 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 !)
Cons: Water in the bathroom smells chlore or salt water.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Staff was always helpful. Restaurant was good and the dive team is really well prepared and you feel in safe hands. Dive boats are also great and with every dive trip you receive a great lunch.
Cons: The location is great but wouldn't call it a walking distance if you have luggage. Better take a motorcycle taxi.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location, swimming pool, waiters and waitresses were so kind, food was great
Cons: The welcoming talk of the marketing manager was looooooong and didn't tell us anything new. So skip it!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautifull location at see. Very friendly people. We were there, half march 2020. during the closure of everything because of Convid-19 and even in that specialy for them very disturbing period they kept beeing very kind for there guests. I would go right back if it is possible again.
Cons: Well we did had to throw a cockroach out of the room and the shower had not much water power but then we are on vacation on a island that still had to recover from Jolanda and Ursula. Did I already mention that the people who worked there were very friendly!
9.0 Excellent

Pros: Nice rooms, clean, lovely staff.
Cons: Asked to change booking and there wasnt great communication between hotel and booking.com Loads of flies in restaurant
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked it that it was not so near the beach area hence it was nice n quiet. Staff were very friendly and the foods were generous and were tasty and nicely prepared.
Cons: I suggested to the staff to put a hanging facility inside the cabinet so visitor can hang clothes and a mirror to the right as u open the door, not ideal to go to the wet toilet area just to have a look in the mirror after u dressed up. WiFi service was weak tho even at the main area, didn’t work in the room. Can be improved!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. I completed my advanced diving course there and my instructor, David, was highly professional and personable.

10.0 Excellent

Cons: Our room had bed bugs and my girlfriend and I have been bitten badly as a result. We requested to move rooms but the staff insisted they change the sheets instead-we tried to explain this would make no difference but they were unable to understand. this room is a health hazard and we are not very happy. It is a shame because other than the bed bugs (cleanliness) of our room we were happy with the place

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The resort is lovely and so relaxing with loungers on the beach, bean bags to sit on and hammocks to swing in too! Food in the Craic House is good, although the music is a little strange for an Irish bar! The restaurant staff are wonderful and shout out to Freeda and the kitchen staff for organising the most delicious and huge chocolate cake for my husband's birthday and to the girls for their singing and dancing to 'happy birthday' for him! Freeda helped us arrange a boat trip around the island to snorkel, see a sunken wreck, paddle board (and wake board with the paddle board too!) Evolution should promote this to guests more as it was a great little trip! Nick, the owner helped make our stay great too after we mentioned a few things to him, he kept chatting to us checking all was okay and really made us welcome. Sometimes just saying something about a problem rather than waiting till afterwards really helps, so thanks Nick! Patrick was a great instructor and I was gutted I couldn't stay longer to do my PADI with him, as on the DSD dive he made me feel super relaxed and I really enjoyed the dive we did! My husband loved the Thresher shark dive so much that he went out twice with Evolution to do it!
Cons: The room we booked had a fan, but wow, it was just so incredibly hot that it was hard to sleep. It would be beneficial for the dive staff to have something on their t-shirts to recognise them. The hotel sell the same t-shirts for guests to buy too, so it was difficult to know who the right person to ask a question was. On checking in, the staff should tell guests the schedule of dives, encourage diving, how to book etc.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly people
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location was great, beach was so nice. Around the corner of the island are some more restaurants and more 'hustle and bustle' so you can choose if you want it more quiet or not. The diving was the best! They take care of all your gear, help you wash it, cary it, set it up etc. Boats were good and divesites amazing! Reasonably priced dives as well.
Cons: Bathroom of our room was supersmall. After a (cold) shower everything was wet. You only get 1ltr of drinking water every day. For a refill you have to pay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This resort is probably the best upmarket beachfront option you can get. Our room was clean and really nicely decorated, the AC and wifi worked really well too which is not a given considering how basic all the amenities are on the island. The restaurant / Irish bar served really good food and drinks with lots of seating options, including directly on the beach. The resort mainly caters for divers but we do not dive at all and still had a great time on the beach, with deckchairs and beach towels provided. They also arranged island hopping and snorkeling boat trips for us and you can rent motorbikes to explore the island. This resort is on the best stretch of Bounty beach away from the boat wrecks but still a short walk away from everything, including the Mercado which is the heart of the island at night and does amazing barbecued fish and seafood and local dishes. We always felt save walking everywhere, even at night. One note, I suggest you use their transfer service from Cebu, particularly if you have a lot of luggage. The private boat will drop you directly at the resort and take your luggage to the room. If you go it alone you could be stuck for hours at the harbor waiting for the public boat to fill up (we saw 2 girls stuck and they were told they would have to cover the cost for the empty spaces in order for the boat to go) and you will be dropped at the main jetty on the other beach and will have to walk around 10-15 minutes through the sand to reach the resort. There is really no road access to the resort at all.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location at the beach is excellent. Rooms are quite with a nice balcony and garden view. The restaurant is very chilled out - a great hang out. Hotel and restaurant Staff was very attentive and always helpful. The equipment and dive guides are very professional. We went on the early morning “shark dive” with Maite from Belgium, who was the most engaged dive guide we ever had. Thank you very much Maite !
Cons: We were rather disappointed by the dives we did. Visibility was very poor. Almost no sea live. We had wished more “expectation management” regarding the conditions.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Relaxing, beautiful beach, friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed the vibe of people around the globe staying at the same resort.
Cons: I couldn't stay longer!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: There was free water to drink and towels I can take to the beach in the room. Room had nice balcony where I can dry my clothes. Shower was hot. Staffs were friendly and kind.
Cons: Fixed shower. I wasn't able to move it place I want.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable room, although a little hot with no aircon (they do have aircon rooms available tho). Amazing location right on the beach. Nice food at the restaurant. I really liked their small library area where I could exchange a book for the one I had finished reading.
Cons: Not a lot of airflow in the room, which we only really felt as we were in a fan room. An aircon room would be fine.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: It's a very nice place to stay. Clean, with a lovely territory, remote from a noisy places. Clean beach with the bean bag chairs. It's basically one of the last hotels on the beach line, so it's pretty quiet there and not that crowded. We didn't do diving though but it was fun anyway. Food is a bit pricey, but the taste is great.
Cons: We chose a room with a fan, so it was either too hot if the fan off, or too noisy and cold if the fan on. So I would recommend you to choose the room with AC.

Pros: Proximity to the beach and just a short walk to the market. Room is clean and they also do daily cleaning. I was in staying the aircon room on the 2nd level so air flow was good Dive shop was just adjacent so was easy to organize. It was also a great crew to go with
Cons: The aircon was too high for me to control so had to always get on a chair but wasnt a big a deal
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Practically on the beach, spacious rooms, lovely staff
Cons: Breakfast needs a bloody serious looking at
7.5 Good
Pros: Decent hotel with dive shop on Bounty beach for the money. Some amenities are a little outdated; but overall everything functions. They appear to be expanding, so maybe the whole place will get a make over soon. Dive shop gave me a good deal on rentals and guides were good; Roland treated me fairly and was friendly; I think he gave me the best deal in the area for the dives (Did Thresher shark dive twice and saw them! Awesome!). Pay a few bucks more if you want newer accommodations nearby. Their restaurant was also a few pesos cheaper even though their food was just as good as neighbors with beach seating; excellent pizza for Philippines. Pros: Free breakfast even though it's basic, great Wifi signal,Comfortable bed, quiet room even though common areas, dive shop with compressor, and construction immediately outside; aircon worked excellent, water pressure and temp excellent, dining area has nice ambiance in courtyard, location is right on beach, motor bike rental available but can possibly walk whole island or get a lift.
Cons: Cons: Lock on door functioned but was kinda getting loose (felt like property was safe though, even left door unlocked a few times because could see room in common areas), Should wear footwear because pathways have some debris and rocks (I stubbed my toe in the dark one night, seems to happen every time I visit Philippines- I was barefoot, but it's a beach), some peeling/chipping paint in shower stuck to bar of soap, a few ants in bathroom, took them over 36 hours to do my laundry, typical Filippino hang ups in service but we're coaching them! Smokers everywhere on property which I detest.
4.6 Okay

7.0 Good
Pros: The location was great, it is by the beach. The rooms are spacious and clean. I would recommend.
Cons: The toilet was broken, we told the staff but nobody came to fix it. Good thing my bf was able to fix it
5.4 Okay
Pros: Beach front.
Cons: Poor quality price ratio. Room too warm. Poor sanitize for insects, walls and doors with small holes even. Mosquito net full of holes too.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room is huge. Options for the complimentary breakfast were limited. Great location; its near the port, restaurants and establishments offering activities within the island. Overall, great value for money.

2.5 Mediocre
Cons: The support for customers is NONE! I booked the hotel and had to contact them for adjustments on my booking. Even if no adjustments could be done a simple “sorry, we cannot change anything in your booking nor attend any of your requests” would be much more appreciated than a no reply on email, Facebook or booking.com.

Dorm was cold at night but the staff gave me and extra blanket so, no problem at all. Thanks for the advice, snorkelling in Moalboal was amazing!!
Cons: Location was a little bit difficult to find from the main beach.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good accomodation and relationship with the best dive shop

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was just perfect - smiling and kind receptionist, nice and clean dorms, curtains are great because you get your privacy, comfy beds, laundry service, rooftop and common area are great to meet other people, friendly atmosphere. They also organise tours to Kalanggaman island, there’s an ATM right next to the hostel, and the local market is just a few steps away, we went there for breakfast, lunch, dinner every day, lots of places to eat. Definitely recommend!
Cons: Everything was perfect!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: food, fresh air, birds singing in the magrove site, environment friendly, friendly staff and everything are excellent.
Cons: Well, i tried fishing but nothing bite my bait.
7.0 Good
Pros: I loved the luxurious tropical garden where the cottages are ubicated
Cons: Many ants in the room. I got many bites in my feet and legs. They should exterminate them almost every day
7.0 Good
Pros: Breakfast is very good. Just right amount and choice. Beautiful setting of restaurant/reception. Staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Incredibly beautiful sunset views from beach.
Cons: The beach was a trash-littered upon our arrival. After complaining the crew did start with a cleanup during our stay. We helped picking up plastic and glass = one planet!
5.0 Okay
Pros: The beach huts are nice and the island felt very safe.
Cons: I feel that this property falsely advertises. It's not really on a beach, it's more of a small bay. You can swim and sunbathe in the afternoons but not in the morning - the tide is out and the beach is mainly mud. With this in mind, it's a bit overpriced compared to other properties that are located in better places on the actual beach. Breakfast options are limited and they often didn't have things in. They do not clean the room unless you request. On our final day, Mangrove Resort charged us 4,500 pesos for a private boat and taxi to the airport. The said that the boat would come to the bay (onsite) to collect us. Two men arrived o motorcycles to collect us, saying that we had to go to the port. When we arrived there they forced us onto a public boat and offered 1000 pesos back. They claim that the resort only gave them 2,000 pesos. It was late and we wouldn't have been able to make our flight if we didn't get on the boat so we just accepted that we had been ripped-off and left. Not a nice way to end the holiday though.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is just lovely, green, planty, natural. Food was okay, but a bit more love could have been there. Coffee ist not for enthusiasts since its this nestle "here you got your baggy now pour it in and drink"-stuff, but thats quite normal on the small islands in the Philis.
Cons: A month ago, on christmas '19, there was a taiphoon and still 6 weeks later the whole island looked like it happened yesterday. Sadly (including the location) there was no single beach to find that was usable without having to clean up something yourself. Ships ashore, huts fallen apart. Some general problem I think. Noone seems to really care.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were super friendly, caring and hospitable. The view on the private beach is amazing. Facilities are perfectly clean. The cottages are so beautiful, big rooms, beautiful interior, comfortable, and you really feel like your’re living in an oriental fairytale. Location is good for couples or people who enjoy the quiteness, but your also at the markets and bars etc in a few minutes by walking. We had a wonderful time at mangrove oriental, and we’ll defenitely come back!!!
Cons: Wifi connection is not working in the beach cottages (too far away from the main building). No swimming on the private beach - too shallow water and too many seagrass.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Practically on the beach, spacious rooms, lovely staff
Cons: Breakfast needs a bloody serious looking at
7.5 Good
Pros: Decent hotel with dive shop on Bounty beach for the money. Some amenities are a little outdated; but overall everything functions. They appear to be expanding, so maybe the whole place will get a make over soon. Dive shop gave me a good deal on rentals and guides were good; Roland treated me fairly and was friendly; I think he gave me the best deal in the area for the dives (Did Thresher shark dive twice and saw them! Awesome!). Pay a few bucks more if you want newer accommodations nearby. Their restaurant was also a few pesos cheaper even though their food was just as good as neighbors with beach seating; excellent pizza for Philippines. Pros: Free breakfast even though it's basic, great Wifi signal,Comfortable bed, quiet room even though common areas, dive shop with compressor, and construction immediately outside; aircon worked excellent, water pressure and temp excellent, dining area has nice ambiance in courtyard, location is right on beach, motor bike rental available but can possibly walk whole island or get a lift.
Cons: Cons: Lock on door functioned but was kinda getting loose (felt like property was safe though, even left door unlocked a few times because could see room in common areas), Should wear footwear because pathways have some debris and rocks (I stubbed my toe in the dark one night, seems to happen every time I visit Philippines- I was barefoot, but it's a beach), some peeling/chipping paint in shower stuck to bar of soap, a few ants in bathroom, took them over 36 hours to do my laundry, typical Filippino hang ups in service but we're coaching them! Smokers everywhere on property which I detest.

We used the airport service provided by the resort and it was great - very comfortable and the driver was very nice.
Cons: We were a bit disappointed that they did not have a breakfast buffet as advertised, but we understand that we were there during the off-season and that is was just not feasible to have a buffet for the few guest that were there. The breakfast was still delicious and plentiful.
