The food at Ocean Vida was simply delicious and the staff were so helpful and friendly.. highly recommend for dinner and if you get in early (4-6pm) the two for one cocktails are an absolute treat as you relax in a beanbag and watch the sunset over the water!

I had an awesome visit to Malapasqua and Ocean Vida this summer. The service is friendly and helpful. Amazing view of the ocean and perfect location on the beach. The food is awesome and I loved their happy hour lemon drop drinks. I loved their roasted vegetable salad. When everything else is fried in the Philippines, this was such a...

Lovely laid back resort with PADI Dive Shop on site. Clean comfortable room with patio facing the sea. Bar & restaurant serving delicious food. Friendly community which is an absolute plus as a solo traveller (I wasn't the only solo woman in the resort). Great service by both the resort staff & the dive team. Would highly recommend a visit!

A very clean and safe resort with friendly and organized staff. Everyone was polite, always saying hello to us with a smile. The sea view room had a wonderful view, with a comfortable bed and enough water pressure for the shower. The only negative point was that they don't provide toothbrushes. I believe it is normal for a high ranked...
