Before reviewing the hotel, I will note that 75% of Malapascua's other hotels, restaurants and attractions were closed due to COVID and the island was mostly on "limited" offerings and services. We were 5 couples traveling together and we all stayed at Ocean Vida; the rates we paid which averaged PHP 6,000 per room, per night was excessively over priced for the facility (room, F&B, etc.) quality as well as the services offered. in checking with other comparable hotels in the vicinity, we over paid easily by 100%. Value for money paid for all of us was extremely low. On the plus side, the resort's staff was friendly and the location was very central on the island within walking distance of other attractions (those that were open). The rooms were tidy with air conditioning and fronting the ocean, which was only a few steps away from the rooms. Food quality was disappointing as was the selection; the breakfast which was included basically inedible unless you had preference for Philipino style sweet bacon, sausages, etc. Everything was sweet including the sliced bread and the options were extremely limited. The island itself is very beautiful and as we were there to also dive, we found an excellent dive centre at an adjacent resort which was open. Diving sites ranged from thresher sharks, caves to beautiful reefs and it was the highlight of the trip. Overall, I would rate the Ocean Vida a 5.5/10.

We spent the weekend at Ocean Vida; this has to be one of the the best service I've experienced, mixed with a beatufil place to stay at, starting by the fact that it's a beach front resort with a variety of comfy chairs on the beach to have a drink and relax, the rooms are neat and have everything you may need during your vacation, food is great and the staff super friendly, starting by the owner who helped us with everything we needed. 100% recommended.

Check in went very smoothly. It was pooring and when we arrived they took us straight to the room where we’ve been informed and could sign the necessary documents. No waiting for the keys or having to grab out our passports etc. I was so thankful for having the warm shower right away. The hotel was very clean and the room was nicely done up. Beautiful verandas. Was glad we had the garden room rather than the ocean view where everyone is passing by 1 meter from the balcony. Lovely lounge at the beach where you can enjoy the sunset with a delicious drink. Can also recommend the massages. Breakfast top! One of the best resorts we stayed in the Philippines.

We were looking forward to this trip since We always heard Malapascua is a paradise. We arrived there from manila very tired & Hungry, and asked if it is possible early check-in they said no the check-in time was 2am so ok, then upon check-in we are asking if we can get extra bed since we want to be together in one room since it a barkada (friends) trip., The FILIPINO Manager didnt allow us and in a very not so good tone, we were asking for a consideration since the room was big enough for us we are willing to pay for the extra beds but the “manager “ just said oh its company policy if it was politely said we would have just understand. We came back 2pm the room is not yet ready. We were so disappointed! They upgraded us to ocean view but ask us if we can transfer back to the garden view the next morning we were like NO. FEELING 5 STAR BUT CUSTOMER SERVICE & CUSTOMER TREATMENT Zero We ended up booking another hotel room in another beach resort so our friends trip ended up 2 of us in ocean vida 2 of us in another hotel. We are expected to treated nicely since we are filipinos too.

Response from oceanvidamalapascua, Gérant at Ocean Vida Beach & Dive Resort
Responded 12 Mar 2020
Dear Caaammy, We are extremely sorry to hear about this, and even more sorry to disappoint a guest of Ocean Vida. We would like to point out that we do not have any rooms for 4 people, only rooms for 2. We suggest adding an extra mattress for a 3rd person if necessary, for an extra cost. You had reserved a room for 2, and if you look at the policies of our resort (on our website, on Agoda, on Expedia), it is clearly noted the maximum capacity of each room. It is not possible to arrive with 4 people having booked a room for 2 people only. And it is exactly the same for foreigners or Filipinos. In addition, the check-in time is 2pm. We offered to upgrade your booking for one sea-view room without extra charge, for the 2 nights (and not only for 1 night). This room was ready at 2 PM and you took advantage of it during your stay. In addition, I know that the manager here made an exception and allowed for all 4 of you to enjoy the breakfast buffet at Ocean Vida. Despite this bad experience, we hope you otherwise had a great stay on Malapascua. Best regards
