It was a good experience. The serenity of the place was so good, and the resort had such good staff and the food was really good, worth the price. Would definitely visit Thresher cove again!
Beautiful place to stay! Resort owners were very friendly and approachable. The only thing that I didnt like was when the receptionist told me clearly that we'll have to ride the public boat and, yet the guide from the resort hired a private boat which cost more than what was communicated to me. I was expecting that we'll have to take the public boat for less cost. Overall, the food was great, the place is very relaxing. Would recommend

Didn't want to leave!
My boyfriend and I have just completed our divemaster course with Thresher Cove. We stayed on the resort for six weeks (we were only meant to stay for a month but we loved it so much so stayed for longer). Take it from us - this is the best resort on the island and you'd be mad not to stay here. Our highlights of our six weeks spent with Thresher Cove were: 1. The diving - Malapascua is famous for its thresher sharks and diving with Thresher Cove did not disappoint. We had close encounters almost every day with the sharks, swimming right up to and above us, along with the occasional white tip sharks, eagle rays and even a manta ray! Beyond this, Gato island, Kalangaman and many of the local dive sites are really beautiful. The local divemasters are some of the best we've dived with for safety, fun and spotting, and we loved the diving set up. Not only do you get great guides, but you are also treated by the friendly boat crews who perform all the heavy lifting and always waiting to help you back to dry land with a smile. If you're looking to do a course, the instructors are some of the most passionate, patient and fun teachers you'll encounter. The teaching ratios are usually very small so you get a lot of help and attention. 2. The Staff - Where to begin here...want to come to a resort where the staff know your name, greet you with a smile, help you at every turn and go out of their way to make your stay awesome - Thresher Cove is the place for you. The manager Darren, accompanied by the scuba-dog Jack, do a great job of settling in guests and being on hand for anything you need. The ladies at the restaurant are friendly and always making jokes, and we loved how organised and lovely the ladies on reception, Cathy and Christine are. Finally, the instructors and dive masters are incredible. We loved their stories, their jokes and their passion for what they do. Special mentions to Dish, Kleng and Darren for getting us through our course. They collectively know everything there is to know about diving, and never fail to greet you at 4.30am with a joke and a smile. Thresher Cove has everything: options for backpackers or luxury stays, wonderful staff and some incredible diving. We couldn't have asked for a better six weeks. Thank you so much! Lots of love, Rebecca & Charlie

Lovely stay
I spent 4 nights here and throughly enjoy every minute.... The food leaving the kitchen was excellent, the grounds superbly kept, and the beach always immaculate. The resort has the advantage of being quiet and a little away from the main beach. I was there to scuba dive and I can't recommend the dive staff enough for their thoroughness and helpfulness. Addie.

awesome experience
I have just returned from a 10 day trip to Thresher cove dive resort and I cannot rate the experience highly enough. From the booking process( we had issues with our flights being changed- not a problem for this outfit, transfers and days in accommodation changed without fuss) right through to the final transfer to Cebu airport the whole operation was seamless, friendly and professional. The resort itself is self contained and secure and has its own beach front. Our villa was right on the beach with powerful aircon and very comfortable beds. Everything is close to hand with pool, reception, dive centre and dining area centrally located a minutes walk. The food is exceptional both in quality and choice- quite a surprise for a relatively remote location. The staff are super attentive, friendly and efficient. Great selection of DVDs on a wide screen if you want a quiet night( and a 9foot pool table) but if you wish to find a little night life it is a short( and fun) ride on the back of a motorcycle to the other part of the island ( we actually walk back in just 15 mins). The dive operation is remarkably professional and efficient with plenty of very knowledgeable and competent staff. Air and nitrox no problem and always available, rental equipment if needed and loads of dive guides . Couses are available. The dives are planned in advance and everything is executed on time- from early morning( 5am) thresher shark dives right through to local night dives. The diving is top notch with the headline act of thresher and reef sharks but the smaller stuff is fantastic-and the corals beautiful. I recommend doing the two dives on Gato island a must.Most dive sites are from 10-45 mins away with the staff transferring your kit and assembling it if you wish. I have been diving for many years with over 300 dives and so have experienced many dive locations and operations. I have had a fabulous experience and wholeheartadly recommend this resort and dive operation. Thank you Darren and the team. Mark Wilkins

Amazing location, amazing staff, amazing stay. Would do again asap
Thresher Cove resort is ideally located, idem gem away from the crowded southern beach; very convenient still to get away at walking distance or by just taking one of the many motorcycle taxi crawling around. The staff was super nice, you just feel right at home on first contact. You're at swimming distance from the azure blue water coral reef surrounding the private beach. What else? They arranged everything for us, private transfer and dives and island tour, with lovelier staff every time. Never missed an occasion to smile. Would absolutely recommend to anyone cruising by Malapascua. Thanks again for a great week with you guys
