I've stayed here twice, in November 2010 and August 2013. The best part of the resort is that you have a gorgeous white sandy beach on your doorstep with plenty of loungers. The resort also has a very good dive centre which means that the resort isn't overly crowded during the day when the divers are out exploring. The rooms...

We stayed here for 4 days and each day we only ate at their restaurant trying different dishes and surprisingly they were all delicious! We didn't get to try other restaurants on the island because my boyfriend wanted to try all their food and he wasn't disappointed may it be filipino, american or asian dishes. The price is not that...

To access the resort, one has to make a crossing from the main island to the shore of the resort. Prepare small change for porter's fee and toilet access at the main island jetty - don't expect any change ... Be ready to walk on coral stones on main island side and wet landing on the resort beach. Room wise,...

The title says it all -- it couldn't have been better. We were a group of six, spread across three rooms and couldn't have had a better time. Dive staff were fantastic, as were bar/restaurant/room staff. You're not going to a 5* luxury resort, but you know that when you book here. The rooms are on the basic side, but...

I stayed at the Exotic Dive Resort for 8 days while on a Medical Mission to Malapascua with the organization Hospitals for Humanity. We arrived a week after the typhoon when the whole island was trying to recover from this devastating storm. Joa and his whole staff could not have been nicer to our team. They went out of their...

Having just returned from exotic dive resort I can honestly say in 19 years of diving and travelling to most of the top dive spots around the world Malapascua and the exotic resort has to have been the best yet!

This August's 11-day long stay at Exotic marked the 7th dive trip there in half as many years :) It was a delight to be there and I was invited by the local DMs to Guimbitayan for the San Roque Fiesta, where every door in every house in the village was thrown open to visitors.

Back a few days ago from an incredible six days on Malapascua. I had decided I couldn't sit on the sidelines without helping in person, and Silvia at Tepanee encouraged me to come and said she'd have a room for me. Best decision I've taken in a very long time. As I was trying to get to Malapascua from Maya...
