We stayed in that place by accident. Had actually booked an airbnb that didnt answer, so we needed to find sthg lastminute. Booked while we were waiting to catch the last boat towards the island malapascua. And because it was so lastminute, we got a big suite for a very low price. Big terasse, right next to the ocean. Lots of privacy. Calmness. Beautiful resort: pool, garden, beach are... all nice and clean and very well maintained. Breakfast was super yummie. Wish we could have stayed longer. But they were totally booked (it was Christmas time... i know...). They have a very good equipped and managed dive center! Make sure you arrive in daylight - the resort is placed on the other side of the island. No cars. Its tricky to get there :)

Diving: Me and my girlfriend did our advanced open water course here and it was great! We would strongly recommend this dive shop! Chris and Kimberly made our time diving with Exotic fun and we felt safe doing all the learning objectives. All dives was great and we learned new things every day! Chris is an excellent, dive instructor with lots of experience. His relaxed attitude and humor made learning extremely fun. From our aspirations we could plan all of our dives together to learn as much as possible while still seeing all the amazing reefs. We did 2 dives at the Monad shoal-site (shark spot) and saw a lot of shark both times! They are incredible! House Reef is nice and also a good place for a first night dive :) Food: Wide selection of both “western” and “Asian” cuisine with varying quality. Good for lunch but maybe not dinner. Great breakfast though!

Stayed here for one night with free bfast when we got in the island. We had 3 rooms for us the whole family. When we arrived at the resort, the staff were very accommodating and friendly. They gave us welcome drinks and it was awesome because we were dead tired from long haul travel from cebu city and it was quite long walk from the place where we got dropped off and walked to the hotel. Room was super clean and we had a little patio. It was super relaxing night hanging out at the white sand beach spending quality time with my family. We had free.buffet bfast and it was just met my expectations. They made really good lattes. Buffet in front of the beach and cook your favorite egg styles fresh, fresh fruits. It was totally a worth staying here and definitely coming back for my next vacation.

We stayed at Exotic for four nights. The room was spacious, AC not too loud and everything very clean. The beach might be the best you find on the hotel strip and because it is a few meters away from the main ferry landing spot, it is also very quiet. Lovely! The best thing is the staff though. Breakfast choice is anyhow decent but we were happy every morning to be greeted by the waitresses and waiters. A special thanks to Angelica and Ray who made our stay very very pleasant. The only downside was a little hiccup with reservations, which is why I deducted one star. The resort was still available to book on Agoda, so we extended our stay according to that, only to be told at reception that they were fully booked. After some back and forth, we were told on the morning of checkout that we could stay at the resort. That process was a bit uneasy, also because even after our query, the place was still available online. However, I would definitely come back

The round trip of Private transfer experience is bad and no response even after complaining to them. First time we are dropped somewhere else which they claim we will arrive at the front beach of the resort. It wasted 1+ hr at the end to arrive. Both trips I was asked to pay the tip by porter of Maya pier but they claim that is covered by the resort.

Dear guest, It is regrettable that you had a bad experience during your transfer. The porters based in Maya are not members of our resort, and regardless of constant communication with them ,sometimes incidents happen on their end. We do remind all our guests that the porters cost is included and guests do not need to pay tip to the porters, as we reminded you before each transfer. Rest assure that we investigate the incident. Best regards, Malapascua Exotic Team
