Good for lunch, great for dinner

We ate here twice, once at lunch, which was OK (had the pancit). And once for dinner which was great. They had a live band, the atmosphere was fantastic. The cocktails by the beach under a clear moonlight sky were delicious and so was the food. We selected our meat and prawns which they grilled and... read more

We stayed at Alona Vida Resort for 4 nights and had quite a few meals and drinks at the adjoining bar. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food palatable. Best for me was the prosciutto Pizza. Also loved the lamamba cocktail. As with all the other cafes they have tables on the beach in the evening for a... More

They have perfect location on Alona beach. The food is very good and not overpriced. Service is also good. They often feature a live band which plays decent rock music.

I stopped for the wifi (on it now...fastest on the beach!) and stayed for everything else. The food selection's good, there's always something playing in the background and in the evening I can't think of anywhere better to be than sat on the beach, sipping cocktails (so good) and listening to the band! Just one tip...if you want something, you... More

I love Coca Vida and have been coming here for years. The current manager these days arrives disheveled smoking a cigarette on the phone and shows no interest in the crew or more importantly the guests. Very unwelcoming! By the end of the night he's usually smashed hanging out with his friends. I spent two weeks at Coca Vida recently... More
