In one word: Stupendous”

My friend had booked the Thresher cove dive resort as a backup in case we ran out of things to do in Cebu. Thank God she had because we had the best three days in malapascua and I owe it to the staff at Threshers cove dive resort. We lived in the backpackers dorm C and while the room itself wasn't special, it had all the basic amenities you'd need. What sold this resort to me was the extremely friendly staff. They will make you feel like you're in tropical paradise. The food at the restaurant is a little on the sweet side but then again, it was not very bad and reasonably priced. They have a special backpacker menu where everything is at least 50 pesos cheaper. Absolutely recommend this resort to everyone. I know I'll be going back there for sure! :)

I was at Thresher Cove Resort for a week in September, 2014. The Good The diving. Thresher sharks in the morning and Mandarin fish at night. Just awesome. The prices are very reasonable, the gear is in great shape, and the guides know the dive sites very well. The kitchen. They do a fine tomato and bacon omelet. I would also recommend the banana and Nutella crepe. Yum. The prices are a little high, but competitive with other establishments on the island. The resort also has a pretty varied “Backpacker Menu”, for those on a tighter budget. The staff. Very friendly, and professional, with fluent English skills. I had some ear trouble and the manager Luke arranged for someone to go and get me some medicine. I really appreciated that. A quiet, tout-free white-sand beach or a huge pool if you’d rather take a dip in that. The Bad No hot water in the dorm shower. The dorm bed mattress was just a thin strip of foam. The dorm bathroom needs someplace to hang clothes. It gets wet in there and there was no place safe to put my stuff. Something as simple as a set of hooks would be a huge improvement. Toilet paper. Before the staff leaves for the night, someone needs to make sure each dorm toilet has enough TP to get through the night. Seriously, that needs to be on a checklist. The wi-fi. It was OK in the morning, but as more people got on, performance dropped to dial-up like speeds. Nothing to do with the resort, but the guys running the boats between Maya and Malapascua. The fare is supposed to be 80 pesos, and a 20 peso flatboat fee if the tide is out. That's in theory. In reality, they will try to work you for every peso they can get. You are at their mercy, so there really isn't much you can do about it, but consider yourself warned. Overall, I would say that the resort is a very good deal for the price that I paid, and I would recommend it to others. It’s a nice place in a great location. With some improvements, it could be a great place in a great location.

amazing stay!”

we really enjoyed our stay at Thresher Cove Dive Resort; the staff was super friendly and helpful, also very professional (reception, management, dive base); the room we stayed in (the lookout) was hands down the best, nicest place we ever stayed in so far, very clean, big shower with hot water, balcony with sea view . The athmosphere was super relaxed, positive and friendly, with a good mix of families on vacacion, couples who travel, (solo) backpackers,... we felt very welcome. malapascua itself is also amazing, beautiful beaches, good food around the Island, good diving, friendly locals, we would definitely recommend going there and staying at thresher cove!

If you want a Relaxing, and Peaceful Vacation with the Best View of Malapascua, this is it!”

We stayed for 3 days and 2 nights(June 2016) here and we are really astonished on how this trip became really worth remembering for us especially the peacefulness, and relaxing ambiance surrounding this beautiful peace of nature. Here are my thoughts and praises for the resort(on different aspects): --Location: Choose resorts on bounty beach area if you want an ambience almost the same as that of Boracay(if you are the type of a person that wants night life). But if you are searching something which is relaxing and peaceful without sacrificing Malapascua's great views, stay on this resort. :) The location is perfectly situated in a small cove, surrounded by cliffs, and it has its own beach. Also, I would say that the resort is properly maintained as the landscaping and cleanliness of it has been consistent. Truly a picture perfect resort in Malapascua. --Facilities: Being on an island away from the mainland, I was really surprised how this resort is fully equipped with facilities. Given that it is specialized on diving activities, you can freely use the large swimming pool of the resort. Its rooms also(deluxe rooms in our case) are equipped with TV, hot and cold shower, and air conditioning. The fact also that it has its own restaurant which servers good food and snacks did not made us worry of its location being far away from the crowded Bounty Beach where restaurants are located. --Staff: No problems with the staff. Very helpful and accommodating. From the receptionists, to the restaurant staff, to the helpers, up to their manager, everyone is approachable. They did not hesitate to help us in our needs through out our stay. Bonus that if you are a Cebuano and can speak the language, you'll surely have a good chat in Cebuano with the manager(the manager is a foreigner by the way). So that's my review of the resort. Hope this helps and have a pleasant vacation! Hopefully we can get back again there soon! ^_^

Thresher is fresher!!!”

The friendliness and efficiency of the staff. The quality of the dive shop. The beautiful, secluded and private beach.

You will have a great time here. All the staff have fantastic personalities; I got some great banter going with all them. Thresher cove really does make that typical saying come to life: "it's more fun in the Philipppines." Yet as well as joking around the staff are efficient and helpful. Everything you need will be taken care off. Thresher cove is in a great location, all on its own just a 5 minute motorcycle ride from the main beach. Helps make it special and peaceful. My clean, spacious room had a fantastic view of the private beach. It was so nice being away from dive resort after dive resort on the main beach. Rooms are clean and in good condition too with great views. If you're looking to dive then this is the place to come. It's the cheapest place to dive on the island; yet the equipment and quality of the dive instructors is still top class. Only disappointing thing was the food in the restaurant. Every meal I had left a lot to be desired. Check this place out!!!!!
