Excellent diving experience
I’ve had an excellent experience in this dive shop: very friendly staff, very nice hotel to stay, and beautiful beautiful dives. My divemaster Nonoy was very experienced and knew the dive sites very well and was able to show me some incredible creatures. The shark dive of course is a must! They do their best to make you comfortable and happy. They did groups of divers by level so you dive with people that are the same level as you are, which is good! Thanks to the whole little mermaid team for this good time with you and special thanks to Nonoy !

Thresher Shark Experience
We really enjoyed our time in Malapascua. We stayed at a very spacious room. The rooms are kept clean at all times. The food at their restaurant was satisfying and reasonably priced. We did several dives and Peter and Santi were really professional. They do not compromise on safety. We got to see the Thresher sharks and it was a really exhilirating experience. I got to see my first pygmy seahorse too. Night dive was also so much fun. I will definitely come back.

Not very friendly
We were not impressed with this hotel. 1st problem: Unhelpful staff. We arrived early afternoon completely soaked through due to bad weather crossing over to the island. When we tried to check in, the staff told us that showing our passports wasn't enough. They needed to see the actual booking confirmation, even though both we and the staff clearly could see our names in the check in binder. We tried to explain that our confirmation was safely tucked away in sealed bags in order to not get wet, and we asked kindly check in to dry ourselves and our bags off before unpacking and presenting the booking confirmation. At least ten minutes were spent arguing about this before they finally let us in our room. 2nd problem: They had double booked our room for one night, and we had to change room for our last night. Not a problem in itself, but then they tried to charge us an additional 30% for putting us in a fancier room and claimed it was the only room left. We did not accept extra charges and, lo and behold, there was a room similar to ours available after all. Additional comments: It would have been really neat to have a rug or some water in front of the door to clean of the sand from our feet. The only rug provided was on the inside, and all the sand ended up in our room instead of outside. The hotel has a fence, which means that stray dogs can't come inside to the yard. However, they had a really friendly house dog. I love dogs, but the staff need to pick up after it. Walking through the sand to the room, we saw dog turds several times a day. Walking to the room in the dark was hazardous to say the least... We cannot recommend this hotel.

Short but sweet dive vacay
Little Mermaid Dive Resort is top notch. I arrived mid morning, greeted with smiles and delicious mango shakes. My room, equipped with aircon, open air shower, and a daily cleaning service, was fabulous and affordable. The beach, a stones throw away, has the most clear water you will ever see. Malapascua in general is a very relaxed island and it has world class diving. Roland, the dive manager, runs a tight ship. The diving was supreme. The team felt like a great community and did everything to make you feel at home. Thank you to Nichael, Nanoy, and especially Santi! Santi took me deep sea diving to see a thresher shark and was an amazing guide. Great food, great atmosphere, all around fabulous experience. I will definitely come back to Little Mermaid. If you want the best diving vacation in the Philippines, come here!

Great place !
I stayed here for 4 days. I did my Advanced Open Water + 2 dives at El Gato Island (really nice dives!). Everything was amazing. There's everything you need. The Advanced cost me 13500p (2 nights accommodation included). I stayed in a dorm (5 people but I was alone) with shower and toilets inside (500p/night). Cleaning everyday. There were still cockroaches but wasn't too bad. The staff is amazing! I recommend this place to everyone.
