Set on a stunning beach this oasis offers lovely rooms and great, welcoming service. The owners and staff were extremely friendly and they create a laid back vibe that compliments the surroundings perfectly. We didnt dive, so cant comment on that, as we just went to chill. We will definitely dive when we return. Ocean Vida create an awesome early... More

I'd booked this place having read the excellent reviews and because I was keen to do some diving in Malapascua. If I was to review this solely as a dive resort, which was my reason for booking, it would only get 1 star, but as the hotel is actually really quite nice I'm giving it a generous 3 stars. The...

We stayed in Ocean Vida for 3 nights at the end of march and i can highly recommend it! Staff is super friendly, beach is gorgeous and rooms are nice and clean. At night time the athmosphere at the beach bar is really cozy with candles and beanbags. Restaurant in the hotel is also pretty good. We chose the hotel... More

We enjoyed eleven wonderful nights at Ocean Vida during a one month visit to the Philippines. From our first contact with the resort our questions and concerns were always promptly answered. We arranged private van and boat transfer to the island from Cebu (worth every peso!) and were met and welcomed to the resort by the manager, Jules. Our garden... More

I just had thirteen blissful nights in Ocean Vida.........what a treat. The first thing I noticed was that all the wonderful staff we got to know on previous visits were still there.......always a good sign. The food was got much better and the dive shop next door thoroughly deserves it's excellent reputation. Many guests I met were on their eighth... More

We had a great stay at Ocean Vida. The car and boat transfers were smooth, and we were welcomed by the resort manager as soon as our boat hit the shore. The staff were friendly and informative, which certainly added to the charm of the resort. The resort is literally on the beach, and it has the liveliest beach bar... More

We came for my birthday at the start of February. Everything was great; the staff, the food, the location and the room. I enjoyed the birthday cake too! The island itself is much quieter than a sold out resort, perfect if you want to relax and be away from constant requests to buy things. We did a PADI Scuba Diver... More

I can't say anything bad about this place except for the problems with internet which we faced while coming there in August 2014. All rooms have conditioners and nice bathrooms. Be aware that there are no TV's in there, so there is no option to connect your Mac or PC to it to watch films. After the tornado there are... More
