    Difficult place to get to”

    The resort and diving were good. I didn't enjoy the dangerous transfer from the large boat to the small boat at Maya at low tide. The scramble up the rocks and then having to pay again for the small boat after I'd already paid for private point to point transfer soured the experience.

    Great getaway ”

    The staff were courteous and friendly but needs to be a bit more attentive. There were several occasions that I would find myself ordering or requesting for something that I had to repeat 3 times because they would say yes but wouldn't deliver what we requested or ordered. I find that a bit annoying at times. Other than that, it was a pleasant experience.

    A great find! Just needs floor mats/rags inside the room.”

    We booked their deluxe room sea view. The room and terrace were very spacious, clean and relaxing. I believe we had the best room in the resort. To our surprise upon checking in, the room was called honeymoon suite.LOL Their food was good as well although we weren't able to have the "breakfast buffet" in the morning. Just the usual set meal simply because a lot of their guests checked out the night before to avoid the said typhoon the next day. Only thing I would like to suggest is to have floor mats and rags inside the room, bathroom, and terrace. There was no easy way for us to dry our feet or dry the floor which kept getting wet.

    Beachfront. Friendly staff. Restaurant on site.”

    The staff were all nice and friendly. We were allowed for a very early check-in. Our room is spacious and clean. its not ocean view but the beach is right outside the resort. There are lounge chairs, hammock and table ready, if you want to relax along the shore. Their restaurant has wide selection and varied menu -- all meals we've ordered are delicious. It's not for the budget conscious, though. A bit expensive but service and food is excellent. For breakfast we had free plated breakfast -- your choices include Filipino, American, Continental or English breakfast. This resort also has a spa and we had a 1-hour massage for P600 only.

    Private beach, happy hour and fine white sand

    The resort was great for its price! A perfect place for divers and those who want to unwind in a not so developed and crowded place. Just be careful from tour guides roaming around who will offer you overpriced tours and trips.

    The rooms were nice and modern. And the location was nice and sheltered from most of the Elements even during an approaching typhoon. Its a bit far from the rest of the other resorts and restaraunts, but if youre looking for undisturbed peace and quiet, this is the place.

    Great diving facilities, best part of beach in Malapascua

    we spent a long week end in malapascua and selected exotic resort becasue we have been there before and had a great experience. the resort has a diving facility, which is well organised with professional staff. we like the resort becasue it is located on the best part of malapascua beach, which gives great relaxiation and peace. the transportation from cebu was perfectly organised by the hotel, although it comes at a quite high price. the only downside is the quality of food: although the selection is very wide, the quality is pretty low. they should narrow down the choice and focus more on quality. anyway, we love malapascua and will be back for sure.

    Five star dive resort!”

    Located at the quiet end of Bounty Beach, nice beachfront and great diving!

    The trip started out great with the airport transfer. On time and safe driving by the driver. Upon arrival at Maya Pier, we were whisked off to Malapascua and were received with a warm welcome. Registration was quick and fuss-free and we had porters to carry our bag to the room. Rooms are located at the back of the resort and offered no seaview. But at least there was more privacy and security. In terms of price, it may not be as worth it as the rest of the resorts on Bounty Beach because of the lack of seaview. On the other hand, the room itself was splendid. Spacious, clean, and comfortable. Everything was done with a diver in mind. However, it could have been better if the resort can provide at least 2 complimentary bottled waters for guests everyday. No comments on the restaurants as our budget did not allow us to dine there. Staff were excellent and very friendly. The dive centre was excellent in terms of facilities and service. All the diving boats were well maintained as with the equipments. We had an awesome divemaster, Pusoy, who seeked out every little critters to make our dives worthwhile. Overall, we had a good time diving with Exotic and the resort offered a homely place for us to rest and relax after a day of fun.

    Boat ride from the Port is breathtaking. Great location. Friendly staff. Nice beach. Our room seemed dirty (hair and sand on the floor). Lovers of soft beds wouldn't like the extremely firm bed and pillows. Salt water for shower and brushing teeth was a turn off.

    Karaoke Classic! However with Great Diving”

    Ideal beach location with some great diving. Additionally a good kitchen producing better than average food, often hard to find in the Philippines. However, this place is becoming run down and hasn't been updated in 10 years +, still no hot water......a lack- lustre management has you engulfed in loud music which constantly changes depending on which songs the staff want to sing next! So if it's a peaceful beach side experience with good service you're after, go elsewhere.

    The location is great, just in front of the sea. There are many boats in front but the peak ours when people are on the daily tours, they are away so you can enjoy more. The room is nice in general, the bed is not very good quality but ok. The private balcony is a huge pro and the sea view is amazing. The breakfast has big variety, it is a buffet and you can choose from almost everything(but they can also prepare you a pancake and an omelette). On the other hand, the prices at their bar or restaurant are a bit high (understandable though). We also had a problem with the hot water as it was not working and I had to complain really strong for them to fix it( at the beginning they were telling me it is not possible to fix it same day but only tomorrow because the maintenance is gone). In the end and after a couple of hours they fixed it, although they seemed really reluctant, which gives me a bad impression in general, trying to avoid their responsibilities.
