We stayed in one of their Deluxe Rooms. Our air-conditioned room, perfect for nature lovers, is surrounded by verdant grass and tropical trees. It features 2 beds with comfy bedding, a flat-screen tv, a wooden cabinet, a refrigerator and complimentary coffee. It has also a spacious bathroom that features a hot and cold shower, fresh white towels, and complimentary toiletries.

One of my favorite spots in the resort was the Craic House, a charming Irish pub & restaurant that offers mouthwatering dishes, refreshing juices and alcoholic beverages. I must say it’s the best restaurant in Malapascua for having a nice and cool ambiance with the overlooking view of the white beach. The food was awesome and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. It has several picture-perfect spots where you can unwind and admire the scenery.

“Evolution is the leading specialist for Thresher Shark encounters in the world. Like all dive shops, we bring our recreational customers to see the Thresher Sharks in the morning. However, we are the only dive centre capable of bringing our customers to see the Thresher Sharks at depths ranging from 30 metres to 100 metres.

He shared a lot of things about scuba diving especially certain things that every diver should remember. The information he provided was easy to learn and understand. We enjoyed our scuba diving with him and it’s truly an incredible scuba diving experience.
