This Resort, I will definately go back to. I had the best stay I could wish for, loved the atsmosphere, the friendly staff, the restaurant, which I can recommended for all meals of the day, basic but very clean rooms and not the least the Dive center staff and fascilities there. 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

Nice pleasant resort located next to the beach. All the staff members (Filipino) over there are very friendly. Like to special call out Gaby the receptionist. She is there standing at the beach to welcome us and also the one to send us off on our last day stay. Rey - our DM, took good care of us during our... More

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
