Spectacular view of the beach”
Ocean Vida is the place to stay in Malapascua if you like to party. It's perfectly located right by Bounty Beach. It is literally 10 steps from your door to the water. When you book I suggest you request for an upper room for seaview. The resort has a restaurant and food is quite good. My favourite is their Vida salad. The staff are very friendly, cheerful and helpful.
Dear Jessica, thank you very much for staying with us and leaving your comment. We are happy together with you! You spend great holidays with us and we are very glad having you as our guest. Big pleasure.Hopefully you come over again to the Island. Would be great to meet you again. All the best from Ocean Vida Family!
Best coice in Malapascua ”

Most lively place to live in”
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.
Hello Clayton, thank you very much for your stay with us last month and leave your impressions and rate. We are sorry for the experience you had with our front desk staff. Greetings from Malapascua, Ocean Vida Family!
very warm service and nice experience!
Hello 聿寧, thank you very much for staying with us and leave your comment and rate. Hopefully you're coming back again. All the best from Ocean Vida Family
Best hotel of Malapascua”
The staff was super nice. We had a problem when we left the hotel and they were very helpful. Clean, beautiful rooms. The restaurant is very good too. Moreover, they have chillout at the beach and it is amazing
Hello Anna, thank you very much for staying with us and leaving your feedback. Happy to read you had a pleasant stay with us and you enjoyed our facilities. Hopefully our paths cross again. All the best from Malapascua and Ocean Vida Family.
Our overall experince was satisfactory, the rooms were clean and the size was adequate. Malapascua island is great for the divers but the beach itself I mean the sea is not satisfactory especially during the afternoon due to the tide in the beach.
Hello Tamer! Thank you for visiting us and leaving your comments. We are happy we could satisfy your stay in our facilities and you felt satisfied with us. All the best from Malapascua and Ocean Vida
Very Friendly Staff”
We stayed here for 4 days. By the time we got to the resort the staff were very accommodating (specially Aileen). We got there around 11am and requested for an early check in and they were very kind to grant our request. Our room met our expectations. The only flaw is there's no Bidet :(. Breakfast buffet is a little bit disappointing since there is no much food to choose from. But given the chance, we will still choose Ocean Vida.
Hello Raymond! Thank you for staying with us during your vacation at Malapascua Island. We are happy we met your expectations. Sorry we could not provide you a bidet in our spacious rooms. To improve and help us making your stay perfect it would be very helpful to know what you missed at the breakfast, as we don't want to let our guests missing something for the most important meal of the day. Hopefully you tell us the secret next time to improve as best possible. Greetings from Ocean Vida, Balik balik!
Nice hotel on a paradisiac beach”
You won't see much of the owners (europeans) but the Philippine staff is really efficient, friendly and helpful. Rooms facing the ocean have got spectacular view on the beach, boats, sea. Breakfast are just great with a lot of choice and very fresh food : juices, fruits, eggs, etc... Restaurant has got very nice foo and dream view. Happy hour on the beach proposes wonderful cocktails. Sometimes they run out of water in the bathroom but not their fault. The island has a water providing problem. Filipinos fishermen living on the island are all welcoming. The place is filled in with scuba divers. Many excursions by boat to the surrounding paradise islands.
Hello Brigitte, thank you very much for choosing Ocean Vida as your accommodation on Malapascua Island and your nice review. We are very proud of our independent team, trying to reach all expectations for our guests. Seems we hit the mark during your vacations. We hope to see you again! All the best, Greetings from Ocean Vida Family.
We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our stay. Really nice hotel! The included breakfast was good, make sure to order pancakes or eggs (included but you'll have to order). We watched the sunsets in the beanbags while having some drinks (happy hour) & snacks, very cozy and would recommend even if you're not staying at the hotel. The only downside was that all of the boats (and there are a lot of them) dock at the beach leaving hardly any space to take a swim. But overall, we're satisfied with this hotel!
Hello Josefin! Thank you very much for staying with us and leave your feedback. Our omelettes are personal created, for everyones own morning taste. We are sorry to read you had problems with the boats in front of the resort. Bounty Beach is an open property and boats only have the permission to up or download in a short time period in front of the resort. We will have a good eye on the situation. Thank you for telling us. Hope to welcome you another time! Greetings from Ocean Vida Family
It has been an awesome stay! The team (every single one) was amazingly friendliy and sweet! ”
Sweetest staff ever, giving me a birthday surprise and just making us feel welcome during the whole stay! The room ws lovely and so was the location right at the nicest beach and we loved hanging out on the beach beds! Food was very good as well. Simply nothing to complain about. Would looove to return :)
Hello Naemi! Blessed to read we could surprise you at your birthday and made your holidays best possible. We have to say thank you being our guest and all our efforts approached your expectations. We hope we see you again in our facilities. All the best and big smile from Malapascua - Ocean Vida Family!
Perfect location near Cebu”
Amazing location and view. Best island in all area. Romantic place to stay. Good meals for dinner. Best fresh juices for breakfast. Attentive staff and manager. The only minus in my opinion is the food from breakfast, same and poor, only few options.
Hello Marius, thank you very much for staying at Ocean Vida and give us a clear information and feedback about your stay. We are happy to read that we could reach almost all your expectations. Sorry to read we could not satisfy your choices for breakfast, we would have loved to improve better directly at your stay. If we get the chance to have you again as our guest, please help us to reach all expectations. Thank you, all the best from Ocean Vida Family.
Fourth time around - still a fan!”
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. Owner Fabienne and her mgmt team and staff always great people, WE WILL BE BACK. Always. !!
Hello Reto! Thank you very much for visiting us again and leaving your impressions and vibes. We wish you all the best for your family and hope to welcome you back in November. BIG HELLO from Ocean Vida Family and Malapascua Island.
Way above the standard”
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.
Hello Daniel! Thank you very much staying with us and enjoy your visit here. Happy to read we could achieve your holiday expectations and you had a good time. Hopefully you come and visit us again, would be a pleasure. Thanks for sharing your experience. All the best from Ocean Vida Family!
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.
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! Greetings from Ocean Vida Family!
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!
Dear Ly! We can read 10 points and a nice detailed feedback, happy to make your stay as best as possible and you left Malapascua Island smiling faces. Hopefully the nostalgia to your holiday memories are big enough that you pass by soon again. Would be a big pleasure to welcome you! All the best and warm regards from Ocean Vida and Buena Vida Family!
As usual AMAZING”
Even if I love filipinos, in ocean vida the crew was even better than all my expectation. It was our first travel since we got our 5months little girl and they took care of her like hell :) Go do not think. The boss is also a charming lady :)
Salut Loic, thank you very much for your warming feedback and staying with us. Was a big pleasure for us hosting your family here. Hopefully we see you again. All the best, greetings from sunny Malapascua Island and Ocean Vida Family.
A perfect stay as always”
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.
Dear Gerhard, thank you again for your visit. It's a big pleasure for us welcoming you every time again. Thank you for your warming feedback. Hope to see you soon, all the best - SALAMAT from Ocean Vida Family.
Really good hotel”
The hotel is in front of the Bounty Beach well located. Room is comfortable and the shower pressure is good. Breakfast could be better specially compering with its sister hotel Buena Vida but it is ok for Philippines standards.
Hello Tathiana, thank you for your visit and leave a comment and feedback for us. We hope to see you again in our resort Ocean Vida. All the best from Malapascua!
Good value for money and very accommodating staff. Great buffet breakfast. Had dinner as well was great. Happy hour is great too with nice mix of cocktails. Only the internet is a bit off. Everything else is very good.
Hey Jon! Salamat for leaving this rate and feedback for us. We are working on our internet connection, due to island conditions not very easy for us BUT we try to improve better. Hope we can welcome you again. All the best from Ocean Vida family and Malapascua island.
I would say this is one of the best hotels on the island. Their restaurant is the best too, good for dinner and laying back along the beach, delicious local dishes and fresh seafood. All staff are nice and friendly.
Hello Bonnjira! Thank you very much for giving us this nice feedback and we can see that you had a great time here in Ocean Vida. Hope to see you again! Best Greetings from the team and Malapascua.
