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.

Friendly staff, good service, clean rooms, good restaurant and nice dive experiences, especially seeing a tresher shark. Would definitely stay here again if going back to this island. The restaurant served a wide range of food and everyone is really helpful.

Having arrived in the Philippines a week earlier in Bohol at a five star resort, We were expecting the Exotic to be a nice three star hotel. Our expectations were far exceeded and to be honest, I had a better experience here than at the previous 5 star establishment. The Exotic is for divers, the full experience, a fantastic team...

I just returned from a 1 weeks stay with Exotic Malapascua. Very comfortable stay and clean rooms every time we are back from our dives. Rooms are well-lighted and you have all options to dim the lights for a more romantic feel or light the whole room bright if you need it. Food from the restaurant are very tasty and...

Malapascua is a perfect destination for divers from across Asia, especially from Hong Kong or Macau, which has direct flights to Cebu. After a 2 hr:40 min flight, 3 hour van, and 30-40 min boat ride, You’re there. I did a 4 week stay at Exotic Island resort earlier this year, about half IDC course and half fun diving. Exotic...

I tagged along with a friend on a last minute dive weekend and Exotic was definitely the nicest place on the island. Most of the others along the (very nice) white beach were either quite damaged by Typhoon Yolanda or just really run-down. The beach infront of Exotic is the nicest and widest as well. Be ready for a lot...
