Guest book

I'll write in English, since im not sure who reads my response :) we are overall happy about our stay at celtis, its too bad we couldn't stay longer. We ecially liked the family who runs the place, they were very friendly and welcomming! The rooms and the stay were everything we had expected. We had a really nice stay, thanks a lot to Mel, a friendly guy from Malapascua who helped us organize a snorkelling trip and gave us some general tips about the island!
I will definitely recommend it to my friends who are looking for peace and quiet! Even though we only stayed for 3d2n, Malapascua is one of my new favourite places (and Ive been travelling around SE Asia a lot!) and I really hope to be Be able to come back soon! I'll make sure to give you guys a good review on tripadvisor too, which is where most of my travelling friends and I look up places to stay. Now we are off to Palawan (if you have any tips on places to go/things to see, please let me know!)!
Take care, and keep up the good work running Celtis!
Best regards,

Alex (and Johanna and Jenny through Alex)


Serge and Celtis were very helpful since the booking via emails giving me all the right information. I have been picked up and very kindly treated in my stay. Room was nice and garden well maintained.
I'll definitely come back if I have the chance

Thank you for having us as a guest at your resort. You have excellent facilities, the room was spacious and it was definitely a great weekend at your place. It's quiet and safe and very clean, we have no complaints.
Other than that, it was a great place, location was fine and not too far. Service was also excellent, the people at the resort were very nice and accommodating. We are looking to go back to malapascua and we are definitely going to go back to Celtis in the future.



Hi Serge,

Hi Serge,
We have been travelling around Asia for 4 months and this is the best budget accommodation we have found. It is much cheaper than a lot of the other rooms on the front in Malapascua but is only a 5 minute walk away. The room is a reasonable size, clean and quiet. It also has a lot of extras that others don't have. The staff in the resort are really nice and friendly and very happy to help with anything like pick-ups from the boat, and drop-offs and anything else you may need. We would definitely recommend it to anyone else.

Excellent rapport qualité-prix!
Chambres modernes et ultra-propre. Situé ā quelques minutes de la plage. Le service offert par un couple de philippins est impeccable!

Bästa svaret på din förfrågan är väl att jag fördubblade längden på min vistelse hos er på Malapascua... Rummet var fräscht och rent och luftkonditioneringen föredömligt tyst och effektiv (även om det inte var avskräckande varmt ute, sista veckan var ganska molnig/regnig). Duschen kunde ha haft lite större tryck, men jag overgick till uteduschen (kall ju) eftersom jag behövde svalka av mig efter min morgon-joggingtur och den hade bättre tryck. Jag saknade kanske TV (framfor allt nyheterna), men å andra sidan fick jag aktivera mig på andra sätt och somnade tidigt så att jag kom upp i tid på morgonen! Jag kom också på hur man eliminerade den lukt som kunde uppstå i badrummet, och hade sen inga problem med den.
För mig hade avståndet till stranden ingen betydelse (över huvud var turisterna på stranden lätträknade, man ägnade väl sig mest åt dykning), jag föredrog i så fall dubbelstranden på norra Malapascua, där det dessutom var säkrare avseende havsströmmar, vilka jag märkte av vid huvudstranden. Vad som var viktigare för mig var att människorna var vänliga, leende och lätta att prata med. Jag tycker i och för sig om sol, men tar det i allmänhet lugnt i skuggan och kopplar av med korsord eller sudoku (bernie var för övrigt en hejare på sudoku), och då fanns det ju två bra ställen under tak på resorten, där man dessutom kunde byta några ord med andra gäster eller bernie och jiji ibland. Vad jag också tyckte var bra var att Malapascua ännu inte blivit så kommersialiserad som exempelvis boracay.
Bernie och jiji är riktiga tillgångar för resorten, omtänksamma utan att vara påträngande, och trevliga. Jag saknar frukosten, bl a lagade bernie en jättegod omelett! Som du nog förstår, var jag således nöjd med min vistelse på Malapascua.
Får jag samtidigt passa på tillfället att be bernie eller jiji att hälsa från mig till fruktförsäljerskan Lindy, som jag tyckte mycket om och som jag samtalade med nästan varje dag!

Hi Serge,
We are very happy and satisfied in your resort. Comfortable and clean room, Berni and Gigi are very friendly to the customers. We can come back and stay in your good resort in the next time. Thanks and God Bless!
warmth regards,

Dear Sir,
Andrea Agarwal passed on your email to me asking me to say a few words about my stay at Celtis and am happy to do so.
As you know, I stayed there for three months and I really enjoyed my time there. I felt very comfortable and at home at Celtis. Gigi and Benni take very good care of the resort and my room was cleaned regularly. Any problems I had were resolved quickly and they were always very helpful and friendly.
I will certainly recommend Celtis as a good place to stay on Malapascua!
Please pass on my regards to Gigi and Bernie :)

Best wishes,

Anne Ovens

nous sommes tres satisfait du cadre, du personnel, de la propreté,
du calme et de la qualité des chambres; de loin la meilleure chambre de tout notre sejour aux philippines.
L' eloignement de la plage est pour moi un avantage; bravo et merci.
Nous ne manquerons pas de conseiller ton hotel (ce que nous avons deja fait avec grand plaisir a deux reprises)



The weather wasn't best possible but it didn't matter too much. Malapascua Island is very nice and relaxing place to be.
Celtis Resort was very good place. People were sympathetic and nice and breakfast was good. Maybe it would be good to have possibility to choose different breakfast but it didn't disturb me. I can eat same breakfast couple of times. I eat porridge every morning in Finland. :)
And whole resort was nice, beautiful and clean. I haven't anything bad to say.
Thank you very much!



Hi Serge,
we were really satisfied to stay in your resort. There is no bad words, the room, breakfast and everything were nice.
I will recommend your resort to anyone going to Malapascua




Bonjour Serge,
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour, l'endroit est calme, quasi neuf, propre, tout fonctionne et le personnel trčs bien surtout le garįon qui est venu nous accueillir et nous raccompagner.
Le transfert fut organisé parfaitement.
Nos plongées ont été superbe mais pas la chance, nous n'avons qu'entre aperįu le thresher et pas vu les mantas. La prochaine fois !
Merci encore pour l'organisation parfaite et le futur discount,
Sincčres salutations,

Anastasia, Peter et Daniel
