Our families (12 in total, 3 generations) visited for five days and had a great time thanks to Ocean Vida! The rooms were comfortable and the food was excellent. The scuba was outstanding, but the non divers enjoyed the spa and beach just as much. But two things set apart this place from others that we have stayed at. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, the island is still recovering. Many places are still closed. But this was the place to be as almost every person stops or walks by the beach in front of it. Most important, however, was the staff. They were so warm and helpful. From the baked treats left every night on our door to the extra effort made to make a special dish for one of our kids who got sick, I can’t say enough about how wonderful they are! If you want to feel that you are being taken care of by family, stay here.…
Ocean Vida resort exceeded all of our expectations. From arrival 'til our last day, everything was great! The sea view rooms were amazing. Few steps and you can dip your feet into the clear blue ocean water. It's beautiful! Excellent location, great accommodation and a variety of delicious food you can choose from. My family and friends we travelled with were very impressed with the service and the kindness of the staff. Very friendly, happy and accommodating. Definitely will be back! 🤩
A big thanks to Nove from Sea Explorers. He made my level up to Advanced + Nitrox a great experience. Accommodations were above expectations for the remote location. Unfortunately I have to subtract a few stars for the food virus that I got on the last day, which made me violently ill. It took 2 days from my vacation to be able to hold water and another day at least to be mobile. Let's work on that food handling Ocean Vida! It cost me greatly in funds and time to get to this part of the world only to be bedridden.
We spent 3 days 2 nights at ocean vida last May 21-23, took the groundfloor rooms facing the beach. Very very nice location and perfect relaxing view! Rooms are great and clean, complete with coffee and stuff. Got our own fridge, very convenient. Food is definitely a YES and the best of all is their staff most especially ms Aileen who welcomed and accomodated us and our needs. They are very friendly and deserves a 100 score for service. We will surely visit back malapascua soon and stay in the same place.
Even though this is a remote area - the resort and offerings are first rate! Sea Explorers went above and beyond my service expectations during my one week on Malapascua. The thresher shark sightings were amazing - and so were the other dive sites. If you have never been here - you need to make your plans now!
We stayed 6 nights at this very nice resort. Location is perfect,it is on the beach. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and there was lot of choice. 4 different of fresh squezed juices,fruits etc... Staff very sympatic and hepfull. Highly recomended.
Beachfront location was a great plus; it’s a great feeling to step right into the sea (and feel its calming breeze) after waking up in the morning. The rooms were pleasant and have aesthetic appeal. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Loved every moment of my stay in Ocean Vida with friends. I would love to go back and relive the relaxing experience once again.
Malapascua island is a beautiful place for relaxing, diving. We were 3 days in Ocean Vida and the benefits was like it was a full week. We are divers and the place is awesome and well known for their spots. Everything is well set , the room are spacious and well decorated. Small attention are there like the leaf with the welcome, the home made tea at your first night. Breakfast is also a gorgeous one with homemade bread, fresh juices, eggs and more. The staff is important and always with smile and time for you We really spent a wonderful time and we will come back for sure Thank you Fabienne and your staff to have made this paradise real.
We were originally booked to visit Ocean Vida in March 2020, but sadly the pandemic scuppered our plans. We agreed with the owners and the airline to reschedule our trip to a later date. Over the next 2 years I was in constant touch with Fabien the owner who gave me updates as to the situation in Malapascua. Exactly 2 years to the day later we finally got to travel to Ocean Vida. Sometimes in life when you have waited a long time for something to happen you are then disappointed with the results, this was certainly not the case with Ocean Vida. Every part of our journey ran smoothly and professionally and we were dropped on the beach in front of the hotel by our ferry. From this point onwards the worlds worries simply vanished. Every single staff member at Ocean Vida goes out of their way to make your stay memorable. They are always smiling and nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent and although we ate at a number of other places we found none matched ocean Vida for quality. The chef even did me mashed potatoes on request. Our stay at Ocean Vida was simply wonderful. Malapascua is not an affluent place and the previous 2 years have been hard on the people. Yet every single person we met greeted us with a smile and a friendly welcome. Our trip to Ocean vida was 2 years late, involved 36 hours of travel and was simply to best holiday my wife and I have ever had.…
Excellent location. Very hospitable staff. Comfortable and clean rooms. Gracious welcome. Nice amenities. Good WiFi. Arguable one of the best breakfast offering ever. Wonderful dinner on the beach. Ocean Vida Grilled Chicken Breast - super.
