        My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nightstand it was amazing! Right near the ferry drop off and close to the dive shops. The hotel had everything we needed. Breakfast and lunch was great, we did yoga and massages at the other location and laid out on the sun beds a few of the days. Staff was also very helpful and friendly. Would reccomend staying here!

        It was a pleasure to stay for 3 nights during birthday celebration. The location is perfect as the room face the sea directly. However, i believe the hotel have to train the front desk staff better. At least put on a smile and better attitude. Overall it was a blast! And i surely be back.

        This time around we had an AC problem. It was kinda annoying but the kindness of mgmt and staff and our dedication to this excellent resort can not be shaken. We had a good time, great for our 7 year old. Food - menu still the same, things often not available but that is Island life, hard to get deliveries. Value for money excellent.

        Beautiful rooms. Perfect location. Amazing restaurant and bar. Attentative staff. There is really nothing to complain about this place. Also the arrangment for transportation, which was a bit more complicated than from the airport straigth north to Malapascua was not a problem for the staff. Would definitively recommend the place for a stay as well as for food.

        Perfect Location”

        Location is superb. Food is a little bit slow but delicious. Staff's friendliness makes up for being inattentive at times. The tap water (perhaps all over the island) is salty. The air conditioner could use a cleaning or replacement as it was still humid in the room.

        Reviewed August 18, 2018

        Thank you very much Patricia for visiting us and give us your feedback, very important for us. Due to island conditions it's always very humid and the tap water is most days not the same quality like on the mainland. We are aware of this and provide you every day 1 Liter service water for your personal needs. We try to ventilate the room as best as possible when our staff is there for cleaning, but we can not let run air conditioning system all day. We hope to see you soon back!

        We have been at Ocean Vida Resort already a few times and the stay there is always enjoyable and rewarding. Especially after they are now as well connected with Buena Vida Resort where we enjoyed not only Yoga and the fitness center but a great massage. The resort has has a great location directly on the sandy beach and this time we stayed at the Garden Court where it is very quite and tranquil. The food they serve for lunch and dinner is very good and the drink from the Bar, especially during Happy Hour are value for money. The management consists of capable people from overseas. All the staff is very friendly and helpful We certainly will be back again.

        We just loved everything about this place. Rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and with an amazing view of the ocean. The private terrace we had was just great. The hotel has a restaurant that serves very good food for a fair price. It also has a bar that has happy hour from 4 to 6 pm and then from 9 to 10. You can relax looking at the sunset while having a drink and seating on a beanbag or this other really comfy beachbeds. Drinks are really good especially the margaritas! Service is fast and the staff is friendly. You can also go to a free yoga class daily! I went to the 7AM one and really liked it. I would definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

        Amazing Beachfront Hotel”

        I had high expectations when I booked this hotel and they did not disappoint. Tina gave us an orientation with welcome drinks as soon as we arrived at the hotel, which was very much appreciated because of the long travel (8 Transfers!). Customer Service is outstanding, they went above and beyond to meet our needs and requests. The water pressure of shower was very weak but they fixed it right away when we advised them about it. They also gave us little cakes with a very thoughtful hand written note, my god daughter looked forward to seeing those by the door every night :) Happy hour is from 4-6PM and again from 9-10PM, the Tequila Sunrise was surprisingly very good and our server Jacob was outstanding! Buffet breakfast is also very good and Ate Eileen even requested the chef to make us one of the best garlic fried rice and ham and cheese omelette I have ever had! The facilities are also well taken care of and I like the way they thought of little things to make our stay comfortable.

        Stayed here with my mom and it was the best. We got the ocean view room and it was really worth it. The sunset and sunrise in Malapascua is amazing and you can view it once you get out of the room. The breakfast buffet was good and filling, starts at 7:30am. Happy hour at the bar is from 4-6pm and 9pm onwards I believe. Buy1 Get1 on cocktails. Servers and staff were very accomodating. The only downside is that the room had no tv but you won’t need it since you’re on vacation! Wifi is slow but understandable since you’re on an island.

        One of the best on the island”

         Nej Ja  Seems to be one of the best hotels on the Island. Just a small walk from were the ferry lands. Public ferry costs 100 pesos, (+20 pesos if low tide)privat around 1000-1500 pesos. The first Public ferry sails in the morning around 6.30-7.00, it only sails when the boatman thinks there is enough people onboard. I heard you have to be at least 10 people, but we sailed with only 6 people on board. Friendly staff. Nice rooms, but toiletroom a bit worn down. Restaurant a bit in the high end, and our first dinner was a bit desapointing, so we ended up eating at a nearby restaurant called Exotic, LOVED it! Breakfast is okay, but the same every day, and not that many things to choose from. Loved the beanbags in front of the hotel, ideal for total relaxation.
