Big clean rooms and helpful staffs! Stayed here for 2 nights and just walk around the island. the resort is very nice and well kept. Recommended place to stay in malapascua island. They have adiving school for a reasonable price. but we just some snorkeling cos we don't have much time for the lesson.

We went to Malapscua with the sole intention of learning to dive. We visited several dive shops before and found that exotic were easily the friendliest and most professional that we saw. Andy and Kelly were our instructors and they were really accommodating and treated us like friends rather than just customers. We didn't stay in the hotel but we...

I completed my IDC here and couldn't recommend it enough. A slightly longer than average course time allows you to absorb all the info you need, without feeling the added pressure of trying to fit it all in to a small time frame. Every day you get to eat from the resorts amazing restaurant, sampling the best the chefs have...

The DMs there are informative, and can accommodate to diver's request (i.e. macro photography, ship wrecks, deep blue sea)... U name it, they try to bring you there! Most important...

Hotel: Our room was of a fairly good standard, it was kept clean and the air conditioning worked really well. The grounds and public areas were also kept well. The staff were wonderful. They were continually laughing and singing, joking with each other and with customers. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The wifi works better early in the...

I did my PADI instructor development course here. Already being an SSI instructor, I had some idea of what was going to take place, but they do not cut ANY corners here at all! Joa, Dan, and Kelly were all fantastic at helping do the prep work before the class even begun. It was amazing to get that kind of...

Firstly most reviews on here are accurate from what I experienced. This is a beautiful value for money property. Staff are friendly. Diving was surprisingly excellent for both macro and thresher sharks. I would return and I would suggest to other divers and non divers. It is a beautiful beach and warm sea resort. Food is excellent with a huge...
