I found it as one of the most beautiful hotel from Malapascua! Its exactly what you need if you want to runnaway from the hussle of the city and enjoy the peaceful and simple life on an island. Rooms are very clean and the seaview ones are just perfect. As soon as we arrived there, in the evening we were... More

Good cocktails and quite good apetizers. I don't understand why they don't allow their customers to enjoy sunchair if you are not an inhouse guest. Much people come here to enjoy after they diving day

I have stayed in Ocean Vida for the second time already. In August 2015 and now in August 2016. What is really nice about this place is the personal touch. Some of the staff recognized us immediately and we were made feel home instantly. I would definitely return. Love the cocktail happy hours, our room with sea view was great... More

Malapascua is a must do for divers. The thresher sharks are incredible - I saw them every day I dove for three days - just brilliant. Malapascua itself has a beautiful beach setting, and the resort is right on the beach. I have no doubt that this is the best resort in the area. The management are very involved, the... More

After living in the Philippines for 3 years, I think I've found my new favourite island. Beautiful, small, white sandy beaches with amazingly clear turquoise water. Ocean vida had the best set up on the beach, sun beds and comfy cushions on the beach, great food and good sized clean rooms. The sea explorers dive shop is professional and knowledgeable... More

All I can say about Ocean Vida is perfect! We stayed in an ocean view room which was literally on the beach! Beautiful rooms, great aircon, wifi was fast, great facilities (good shower pressure and hot water). The Ocean Vida restaurant and bar were awesome! Happy hour everyday on the beach, free buffet breakfast and delectable lunch and dinner menu.... More

We stayed further down the beach, but ended up hanging out here as they have the best set up on the beach. the large pillow chairs on the sand with low tables are the best place on the island to kick back and enjoy the sunsets. We made it there for happy hour most days and because the food was... More

Staying here was a good experience. The Accomadation was satisfactory- all you can ask for considering the main reason you come here for is the diving. The staff were super friendly and eager to please and made the whole experience fun. The dive staff were excellent- both well prepared, flexible and knowledgeable.
