This resort has really nice rooms, aircon is not loud, hot/cold shower, TV but only 2 channels which weren't that great but who needs a TV when staying at the beach. Beach is clean just a bit more shells and rocks than I thought there would be. Restaurant is pleasant. Quiet & peaceful place. September is a good time to... More

Great location, lovely staff, restaurant with a menu which is like a coffee table book, Im very happy I chose to stay here. The diving operation is also very professional and the dive masters fabulous. I got the 50% off deal, so chose the beachfront room, beautiful views from the veranda. There were sandflies on the beach which was a... More

We spent 4 or 5 nights there and did about 7 dives each. It was lovely and we made lots of great new friends. The menus is extensive so I was surprised that they always had everything. The food is good, the staff nice, and the local dive masters god at showing you the small small itsy bitsy tiny things

I dont usually return to places I have stayed previously preferring to sample different places but Exotic was that good I stayed twice! This place ticks so many boxes in so many categories and when you consider its location on a low key undeveloped island it is truly remarkable and difficult to imagine anything could be better. Exotic has an... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Exotic Island resort. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The beach is fantastic and the resort is on the best part. Food at the resort is great, we had a lovely breakfast in the mornings and delicious dinners too. I would highly recommend this resort.

It was my first time visiting Malapascua and the resort set the standard for the island experience. Rebecca, the resort manager, was very helpful giving all information I needed traveling to the island. She also responded to all my inquiries promptly. The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful as well. Stayed at their deluxe and beach front deluxe rooms... More

Friendly staff, good service, clean rooms, good restaurant and nice dive experiences, especially seeing a tresher shark. Would definitely stay here again if going back to this island. The restaurant served a wide range of food and everyone is really helpful.

Having arrived in the Philippines a week earlier in Bohol at a five star resort, We were expecting the Exotic to be a nice three star hotel. Our expectations were far exceeded and to be honest, I had a better experience here than at the previous 5 star establishment. The Exotic is for divers, the full experience, a fantastic team... More
