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!

Best coice in Malapascua ”
Lovly and very cozy room. Friendly and helpful everybody. Super close with ocean and beach, diveshop. No hot shower No clear water( a little bit salty) But if i back again i will defrinitly stay again!!!!!!!!!!

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!
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!
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.
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.
We were so surprised by this resort. The rooms are enormous with a sea view balcony and lovely bed. The restaurant's food was amazing, the bar and happy hour was great and the little good night message every evening such a special touch. Super bummed that we did not have more time here, and that we had crappy weather, but still an amazing resort that you should most definitely visit.
Hello Anelda! Thanks for giving a big smile in our face reading your message. Happy you spend good vacation days here with us and we are sorry we could not on top provide you better weather conditions. Hopefully next time with a lot of sunshine! All the best from Ocean Vida Family, thanks for staying with us, was a big pleasure.
Amazing staff that take care everything. Very good and rich breakfast. Very clean, hot shower and PERFECT LOCATION
Hello Daniel! Blessed to read we reached your expectations and your holidays had been amazing. Thanks for your stay and leaving us a big smile with your feedback. Hope to see you again, Greetings 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.
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.
Hello Katrina, thank you so much for leaving this detailed feedback for us. We can only give the feedback that hosting you was a big pleasure for us and we hope we meet one time again. Greetings from our Ocean Vida Team and the island.
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.
Hello Monica! Thanks for leaving your comment here and let us know that you had a good time at Ocean Vida. We are sorry that we are not providing a TV in our rooms and we hope this was not a surprise for you as this is written in our room descriptions too. Hopefully our sunsets had been solving the missing TV. We would like to welcome you again! Greetings from sunny Malapascua! Ocean Vida team
The best Malapasqua has to offer”
Great run resort on the beach, best bar happy hour, outstanding staff that will go out the way to help you, if there is anything they could do with fixing / making better is the weak or low water pressure in the showers.
Hello Leandro, thanks for leaving your rate and feedback for our Ocean Vida resort. Happy to see that we could satisfy your vacations on the island. We are working on our water pressure all year and try our best for our clients. Hope we meet again! Greetings from Malapascua!
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.
Hello Brian, thank you very much for your visit and take you time to give us a feedback and rating. Would be happy to welcome you again on Malapascua. Greetings from Ocean Vida Resort
Great for relaxation”
We travelled as a couple and neither of us were diving, but nevertheless we had a lovely week at Ocean Vida. We particularly enjoyed the free daily yoga at their sister resort, Buena Vida, and the 4-6pm happy hour cocktails on beanbags on the beach. Breakfast was great and the staff were all lovely. It was a perfectly relaxing week!
Good afternoon Tania. Thanks you very much for recommending our resort with your detailed review and rating. Was a pleasure for us having you here as our guests in Ocean Vida and Buena Vida for the yoga sessions. Hope you come back! Greetings from Malapascua
Best service in Malapascua”
The service was the absolute best thing about this place. The team helped me prepare a nice romantic dinner for 2 at their sister hotel Buena Vida and also returned my bag which I had left in their restaurant. The rooms are very clean as well and they even have turn down service for the guests. Location is near the ports as well and just in front of the beach. A great experience and I would definitely stay here again! Will try out the yoga classes then.
Maayong Udto Christine, we are so happy you had a good time with us and we could make the best out of your stay with Ocean Vida. Thank you for your visit and your nice review. Come and visit us again. Greetings from Malapascua
Where do I start? location is perfect, away from the busy and noise of Station 2 yet its only 15 minutes walk. Everyone in the staff are amazing, check in and check out were very easy. Laundry service was only 100 pesos ($2.5 per kilo). The front beach was perfect for relaxing. Stayed for 2nights with my partner and would def come back...
Maayong Udto Michelle! It would be a pleasure to welcome you another time - thanks for your visit and your detailed feedback and rating. We are glad you had a great time with us at Ocean Vida Resort. Greetings from Malapascua
