Hands down the best run resort I have stayed at! Jul 10, 2011

There is basically one beach on Malapascua where all the resorts are located, and this is also the case with Exotic beach resort. It is located on the far east end of the beach (the beach is only 1km long). This also means that it’s a bit more quiet and less overrun by tourists during the day, which makes this place more attractive in my opinion.

The resort is fully equipped with all you should find yourself needing during your vacation on this island, so unless you really want to try out other restaurants, or go for a massage, you are pretty well off just staying here.


The rooms comes as low as 1000 PHP for a single fan room, which is what I got. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the room, that was well sized, clean and with new’ish interior. Most of the rooms face the beach, and they all have a well sized porch where you can enjoy the view and WIFI when lazing at the beach gets too much for you.

The cheaper rooms only have cold showers, but its newer really cold, merely tepid.


Hats off to the chef of this establishment! I made sure to order a new dish every single time I breakfast, lunch or dinner to try out as much as possible, and I was never disappointed. Instead I was constantly amazed with the quality, presentation and taste of the food that was cooked here.

The Filipino dished here was really well tasting, and also the international kitchen was great. They even have a proper baristo coffee machine, so those of you really enjoy coffee, you wont be disappointed here.

Now you are probably thinking the price must be insanely high then.. But no, it was actually very affordable. The beers are measly 50 PHP and a standard dinner dish is 200 PHP.


The place is probably close to be overstaffed. But in the eyes of the customer, this just means you are taken care of 24/7! The staff is really friendly, smiley and never hesitate to help you out.

The attached dive shop is fully equipped PADI 5star, and as professional as they come.


Exotic beach resort is simply a really well run resort located on this paradise of malapascua. I surely felt like I got my money worth, and I would never consider using another resort when I return here.
