Breakfast was very good with good variety. Service was good but 1 particular bartender(might be an in charge) chooses on whom to serves... looks like...

Well worth the effort to get there. From Cebu airport it's a 3 hour drive to the harbour and a 30 minute boat ride (weather permitting) to the Island. The beachfront resort is welcoming and the rooms are large, clean and well equipped. The restaurant offers a wide range of food and drink but its worth checking how half-board works....

So this review is only given based on my diving experience. And not so much of a bad diving or not welcoming staff, but the operational side during the dive, that is a bit of overstepping the safety measures in place, or giving a more informative diving experience We did 3 dives (morning and 2 afternoon), which were our first...

We did not stay there but we had a great meal there. We stayed on that Island 3 1/2 years ago and remember having great food there. We wanted to go back. We enjoy the atmosphere eating on the sand by the beach. They have a very large diverse menu. I think they grow some of their vegetables on the...

This is my 5 day at the hotel. What I can say is simple Amazing. The food is superb and the staff super helpful and funny and always smiley. The beach is on the front of the hotel and the sand is soft there are some corals but is not problem.

Overall a great place to stay. Communication prior to arrival was prompt and transfers from Cebu were organised. Nice ocean view room air con and fridge, comfy bed. Great dive crew attached to the resort, good equipment excellent dive masters well organised. The only slight negative was the food breakfast was cold, menu choices often not available but overall would...

If you don't know the meaning of hospitality. Try Exotic Dive Beach Resort. 2 thumbs up. I got a lot of tie-ups, however, they standout!... You will surely love to come back. Aside from the beautiful Island.

Their rooms are spacious and has it's own balcony. Beachfront hotel and you can actually go out with your goggles to swim and see some chorals (if you swim a little farther). We did not get to dive but they had top of the line diving gears and instructors. These guys know what they are doing in the diving world.

When you arrive on Malapascua Island by your own, it is not really easy to get to the resort but I can tell you it’s a little adventure. After arriving on the island, a lot of people want to carry your bag and be your taxi. The prices they charge are ridiculous high. We politely said no and looked for...
