“Happening in Malapascua”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

I did not stay in this hotel but I got a chance to dine here twice in my 3-day stay in Malapascua. They have a variety of food choices from European dishes to Filipino Native food. They have bean bags and coffee tables lit up with a candle light by the beach. Amazing place to grab a drink as you enjoy the sea breeze and sound of the waves crashing on the shore.

Room Tip: Get the sea view rooms. These are the newest rooms of the resort.

Thanks to Fabienne and the rest of team, our trip to the Philippines was truly amazing. We were lucky to get an ocean view room, so getting up in the morning with the beach right at our doorstep was just the start that we needed. I would very much recommend this resort - not only because of the lovely beach, the excellent diving opportunities or the fantastic restaurant, but simply for the experience of being in a small resort which is embedded in the local community!

Malapascua is one of the best islands we've visited. Its a scuba diving haven with lots of great dive spots famous for Thresher Sharks and Manta Rays. We stayed at Ocean Vida, which is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the cool blue waters of the Philippine sea. We stayed here for a week in April and the staff were extremely courteous and helpful, clean rooms, great food (Western and local - bohol express is a must try!). The resort owner, Sven is very friendly and courteous. One of the key hangouts on the island is the resorts beach bar with perfect time slots for happy hours, bean bags thrown around coffee tables for a casual and cozy setting, the cool breeze of the ocean.. all so relaxing.. we wish we did not have to leave. The resort is tastefully decorated... The nights are extremely peaceful with the sound of the waves against the beach...sun chairs and hammocks to relax on during the day.. massages by the beach for the tired divers and non divers... Loved it all!! It left us wanting for more.. U bet we'll be back sooner than later..

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are better with clearer view of the beach from the balcony

Stayed for 5 days in Ocean Vida Beach & Dive Resort. This place is really cool! The beach is perfect and the diving amazing. The staff are so sweet and nice here and so the service is very very good! Run by a German Swiss couple and so everything are run to "western" standard but with real Filipino charm :) Room are very high standard for a beach resort of this type and everything clean and well taken care of - Definitely a place I will come back to

Room Tip: Get the beach front rooms - even though they cost a little extra, waking up to the perfect view of t...

We just came back from a 4 days stay at Ocean Vida Resort in Malapascua, Cebu, Philippines. The hotel is very clean, spacious and comfortable. The rooms have a very nice balcny overviewing the beach and ocean. Beds are big and comfy, you get space in the bathroom and shower as well. Not too impressed by the ffod but then, it's an island and you cannot get much there I guess. But anyhow the food and drinks were very affordable!! The staff was friendly and welcoming. Loved the "relaxed vibe" of the place in general! And the rooms are right at the beach!!! Ocean Vida arracneged for the transfer from Ceu airport to Malapascua and it went well very weel, we didn't have to worry about anything!

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor get a bit more privacy and a better view.

My sister and I just returned from the most amazing holiday in the Philippines! Everything from the moment we arrived worked out perfectly and provided an unforgettable experience. By the time we were headed to Malapascua island we were content that we had had the best holiday possible. Little did we expect that our stay in Malapascua and especially Ocena Vida Beach & Dive Resort would turn an amazing holiday into a spectacular holiday. The resort facilities were perfectly clean and comfortable and the restaurant and bar were perfect in the quality of their food and drinks as well as their service. The management and staff made us feel so very welcome and definitely contributed to our experience of Malapascua. I would definitely recommend Ocean Vida as the nicest place to stay and would return to the Philippines just to stay there!
