My 13 year old son and I stayed at this resort for about 6 days. The hotel transported us by car from our hotel and then by boat. They were on time to pick us up. We arrived at the resort and I was blown away. The beach and ocean colors were amazing. We were greeted with a drink and... More

Malapascua Exotic Diving Resort - the airport transfer was late. Instead of them looking for us on arrival area, we are the one looking for them in exit area. Then when they found us, the car hasn't arrived. The driving takes 3-4hours (depending on the road traffic) to go to the end part of Cebu land(called Maya), where the private... More

Stayed for 8 nights in a top floor deluxe beach front room which was very clean and comfortable and above all bug free. We really enjoyed our time at Exotic and what made it extra special were the staff - everyone was so friendly, pleasant and helpful and the atmosphere all round was really great. The restaurant menu was amazing... More

Spent easter week end at Malapascua. The hotel is nicely situated with good sea view/access from dining area, however rooms were not well located and we had no sea view, rather closed and unattractive location. Very basic amenities. Verandah looked at back lot rather than towards sea. Food was average, we preferred to dine elsewhere. Dive shop was fine.

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

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
