A fantastic week at Ocean Vida, above all our expectations. We have been there for the last week in February together with our 10 yrs old daughter. We were all newly OW certified and enjoyed all the diving activities proposed; the sites at Gato Island and Calangaman are stunning and all of us keep watching our sports cam pics on...

Lovely Beach-front location. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. Ours had a small balcony overlooking the beach and sea. Just before sunset the staff put loads of bean-bags on the beach and it is great to sit & relax & drink whilst watching the setting sun. Breakfast were good but sometimes it took a while. We did eat here...

It was very comfortable and cleaned well every day. We ate at the restaurant every night we were there. The Filipino staff were very friendly and...

We really enjoyed every aspect of this hotel and the island. We had one of the garden rooms which were quiet and lovely inside and out. Fresh water was provided in the room every day and the room was kept tidy by housekeeping efficiently. We really benefited from the partnership between the hotel and Sea Explorers. The food was pretty...

Ocean Vida is the perfect place to lean back and relax with friends over drinks or food. The beers are cold, the food is great and Steff the manager is friendly and accomodating; he likes to go around and check up on the customers to see that we don't lack anything and are enjoying ourselves. Ocean Vida has very comfortable...

The resort is located along the shore line, although it needed a bit of improvement, the housekeepers just leave the brooms and other cleaning materials along the corridor for guests to see, the room is quite dim due to dark curtains. I love the beach couch and sun seats. I also love the food, good night life at ocean vida👍🏻
