Apr 15 was my 12th stay at Malapascua over 4 years or so. What more can I say? I stayed at the Deluxe rooms and was pleasantly surprised to find them well renovated recently, with decent hot water pressure. Housekeeping on a daily basis is impeccable. Service at the dive centre is always excellent with the friendly crew, captain, DMs... More

Fantastic dive sites and marine life!!! Every dive was such a surprise especially because the super experienced staff was able to point us all the tiny little creatures around the dive sites. The resort was really nice and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Restaurant was really good. During our stay they also organised a conference about shark conservation,... More

Would highly recommend this place! Me and my girlfriend came here primarirly for diving. The transportation (car booked via exotic, boat) was very convenient. Warm welcome. At first we were a bit surprised the room didnt look as on the pictures but the friendly staff offered us to look at other rooms and we were happy with our first room... More

We went there for dinner last Mar 15. Among others, we ordered Hinalang na Manok (Spicy chicken). The order came in after a long wait, and not before the waiter came back to us asking if we had ordered hinalang or was it Linarang na Isda? Apparently, they hadn't yet cooked the viand. Once the order came however, we were... More

The staff there is the most fantastic, friendly and... More

The exotic is definitely a guest first resort. They will definitely bend over backwards to make sure you have everything you need. The food is some of the best and most diverse on the beach. The dive staff and dive shop are superb! Very professional and extremely accommodating to whatever your needs may be. Malapascua is my favorite place to... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights of our honeymoon at Exotic and it didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly and attentive - when they found out we were on honeymoon, we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite and were treated to a sumptuous room with a huge blacony and beautiful sea view. The beach is further away from the... More

Me and my boyfriend spent 4 nights here and we really appreciated location and environment. Anyway considering that we paid 70 euro per night and in the same resort they provide 3 rooms for backpackers (each room 6 beds) for just 6 euro per night ( breakfast included) I think they charged to us too much.

We have just got home from our trip to Exotic, we could not have had a better time. The trip was for our anniversary, our 40th, from the moment we arrived we felt special, not just a room number. On the day of our anniversary we were treated to a lovely evening meal on the beach. The staff can't to... More

This is my second time in Malapascua and I have been in this hotel twice. They have the best dive operation in the island. Excellent divemasters, very well organized, great boats and frequent trips to the neaby islands (Calanggaman is a must, along with Gato, Nunez and Dona Marilyn). The accommodations are comfortable, everything works. Hot water and Air conditioner... More
