Beautiful ”
Beautiful location, beautiful staff, beautiful experience. I only have positive things to say about our stay here. The breakfast had plenty of options. The rooms were clean and tidy and I liked the pillow which is rare. We had a Garden View room which were peaceful. The meals in the restaurant were nice. We dived with Sea Explorers who share the site with them and they were great too.

Not luxurious but got what you need”
My friends and I went to Malapascua to dive and I'd say, if you're not looking for luxury, Ocean Vida is more than sufficient. It's beside a dive centre and has rooms by the beach. The food is way better than any of the food I've tried on main Cebu island. They have a sister resort called Buena Vida (I think that's how it's spelt), which is located more inland. The staff were all very friendly and quick to answer any of our questions. We did a free yoga session at Buena Vida, that's offered to guests at Ocean Vida.

Good ”
Me and my husband stayed over the weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is so ideal for us because the resort is just in front of the beach. It is relaxing waking up in the morning hearing the breeze of the sea. We also have our private moment coz even if there were by passers it could not disturb us in anyway. The food was great and the staffs were so accomodating so as the owners were nice and friendly. I want to comeback next time with my family, surely they will love it.

Beautiful little boutique hotel by the beach”
We stayed at the ocean front room with a nice view over the beach, the room was clean and nicely done up. Service overall was good with friendly staff however quite slow during dinner on our first night. Good effort to save plastic by giving each guest a reusable bottle (for a fee) and use of bamboo straws. Breakfast was nice with freshly baked pastry, otherwise basic selection. Great SPA! No pool which is not needed as it’s right next to the ocean, but if you’re looking to dive I would recommend walking 10min across to Evolution instead as they seem to care more about protecting our reefs.

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.

Stay on Seaview rooms ”
We stayed for 2 nights at a deluxe seaview room. Everything was great here. We loved the location of the room , very near the beach front and the restaurant. The bed was comfortable and i love how they leave snacks at the end of the day by the door with a handwritten note, very personal:) the food was delicious. Happy hour from 3-6pm cocktails are buy 1 take 1. Of course we took advantage , the drinks were delicious! Unfortunately we had to transfer to a garden room on our third night because i added an additional night and there were no more seaview rooms available. The room is a bit old, dark and smelly. Kind of smelled like septic :( we like the seaview rooms more. Ps : no tv on rooms. But wifi is good for browsing social media and emails. Breakfast is included on our stay. Seaview rooms are recommended

I had mixed feelings about staying at Ocean Vida. The resort is beautiful, the rooms are spotless, the menu is delicious and the scuba diving shop is fantastic. My fiance and I went to Ocean Vida specifically to scuba dive. We were thrilled with organization and efficiency of the dive shop. The main thing we did not care for about Ocean Vida was the amount of tourists. We previously stayed on a more remote island before coming here and were a little disappointed at the lack of local nightlife, interactions, restaurants, etc. We thrive off of interacting with the local culture and staying at Ocean Vida you get zero of that. However, like I said, everything else about this place is phenomenal.

upon checking in, a receptionist brought us to the restaurant and served very pretty welcome drinks. The room was clean and the bed set up was amazing. They also provide a mosquito repellent in the room which was very helpful. we loved the happy hour at the beach. They actually mixed strong which we liked. The foods and drinks are affordable and very good! staff are friendly. The location is also good the beach is just in front of the hotel. Overall, we enjoyed the stay and would love to come back again :))

Ocean Vida is very difficult to book and so I booked the deluxe sea view room almost 6 months in advance. The room is big enough for 3 people. Room well equipped, with the hotel manager debriefing. Bed and pillow is also comfortable. The small imperfections will be the choice of breakfast.

Best hotel ever!”
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.
