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. It was nice to dive with born and... More

We stayed in the garden apartments which are a bit more quiet as the nights can be longer when gueat from other restorts visit the Ocean Vida Bar. The resort has a nice well maintained beach and a guard to keep the village kids away from the tourists. The food at the restaurant is average. The dive center is top!... More

We had a beautiful, clean ocean front room. There were lots of shelves in the room and other space for storage. The shower had great pressure and hot water, but the design resulted in water spraying into other parts of the bathroom. Of all the places we stayed in the Visayas, this had the best in-room internet service. However, each... More

Ocean Vida is the place to stay at. The access to its fantastic diving center, the friendly and efficient staff, it's beautiful beach, the quality of the food (one of Malapascua's best restaurants) and the overall relaxed atmosphere are just some of the reasons why our one week stay was simply fantastic.
