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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
