Absolutely enjoyed my stay at Vida Homes last December! We booked Villa 3, and it was such an enjoyable weekend. Would love to come back~ Location: Pura Vida/Vida Homes is located within the town proper, but by the seaside. It’s easy enough to spot (in the evenings they have a lit up sign by the highway). The resort is spacious (owing to it having 2 variations, the more public resort, and the more private villa homes and rooms). Despite being in the town proper, the area is quite quiet and secluded, which gives it an excellent relaxing feel. Rooms: Villa 3 is one of the newest villa additions so everything inside is new. Private carport (fits 1), spacious living room area, big kitchen with island and huge fridge and ample cooking space, 2 bedrooms (1 master and 1 twin). And its own private pool. Villa Amenities: Loved the bathroom, which was spacious. Shower and rack heights are fitted for tall people but it’s not such a big issue. Hot water available throughout the day. Kitchen is available for cooking (if you bring your own things), but didn’t get to try this out as we didn’t plan to cook. Cooking pans, chopping boards, and cutlery are available in the drawers for free use. Fridge had more than ample space, with a ref and freezer area. They also had an oven, induction stove, and hot water kettle. A large drying rack is right by the sink for easy drying. Airconditioning is available in each room, plus the living room. TVs are in both rooms, with access to some channels like CNN. Beds (toppers) were a little hard (probably since they haven’t been used so much) and I tossed and turned for the first night. It was much better during the second night. There are also a lot of light switches throughout the villa, and they aren’t labelled or positioned in places that always make sense, so we often had to go around looking for which lights light up which areas (both inside the house and by the patio/pool). Resort Amenities: Aside from our private pool, Vida Homes has 2 more pools (one lap pool which is somewhat deep, and the main pool which has an attached pool bar). By the restaurant is another pool, as well as a billiards area. Food: You can order food at the restaurant, or have them served at the villa (except for breakfast). Food was quite good, I especially liked the salmon served with pesto and cheese. Pizza was also delicious, and with big servings. Service: Par Excellence. From the moment we arrived, to checking out, I found the service to be highly excellent. Staff, whether they were on the grounds or coming to the villa, were always friendly and easy to talk to. The owner(?) would always give us a friendly greet when she saw us on the grounds, or when we were having breakfast. Price: As it was during Covid when I visited, the resort had promo prices which made it more affordable to stay in compared to pre-Covid. The resort prices cater more to tourists and foreigners, which is reflected by the high quality rooms and amenities. Prices are probably still a little on the high side for many locals, but it’s definitely worth the price if you’re looking for a great place to Staycation since traveling outside is still very limited. I highly recommend staying at Vida Homes if you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing home away from home.

We were originally staying next door , when the Covid19 virus sent everything in to lockdown, we were unable to get back to the UK. This resort has close ties with Pura Vida Beach Resort next door, so we were asked to transfer over to a 1 bedroom apartment, it was amazing, full working kitchen, huge bathroom and bedroom. You can walk across and use the restaurant at Pura Vida or there are several bars with restaurants within walking distance if you do not want to cook. There is a local market for fresh fish and fruit and veg , again within walking distance. There are 2 swimming pools one is more a pool for doing laps in, the other is a pool bar. The resort is directly on a beach and if you like snorkeling there are many places that you do this from along the beach. The maids come 3 times a week and do a light clean plus once a week they will change sheets and towels for a small charge. There are guards onsite to ensure your safety, but we never encountered any trouble. Reception was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Although our stay was forced on us by the pandemic we wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else. If you like the Condo style holiday I can highly recommend this resort.

Vida Homes is a beautiful, quiet, friendly resort with quite possibly the most amazing staff that we have ever encountered in our travels. The condos themselves are lovely and located on the beach with a swimming pool just steps away. But it is the five star staff that makes Vida Homes the exceptional place that it is. From the housekeeping to the grounds crew to security to reception to the retaurant and bar staff, each and every person is friendly, kind, efficient, and makes sure you know they are there to make your stay wonderful. No matter how beautiful a resort might be, a staff like the one at Vida Homes elevates it to the next level of luxury and comfort.

I just returned home to the US after the fourth monthly visit to Vida Homes Condo Resort, each trip has been super! Management and staff are professional and always ready to assist with information on travel, local excursions. My condo, pool view, is ideal. Design is warm and welcoming, with two full baths in case of a guest. Well appointed kitchen with plenty of utensils if the chef likes to whip up a meal. Housekeeping staff does a very good job! I like to work out and Vida Fit gym is top shelf, with all the equipment for a full work out with weights, cardio, and aerobic room to do active exercise. Also enjoy swimming in the lap pool. Reception staff is available 24/7 and helped me out with everything from telephone loading with Globe, to transfers to the airport. For divers: only a few minutes walk to the dive center and area to board the boats. Nice to have that convenience. Location is good to take a walk from the resort into Dauin to see the town, market, and local area. Also, close to several motorcycle/scooter rentals, I rent a Honda 125cc for a month, very handy for trips into Dumaguete and beyond, like Valencia. Overall, Vida Homes Condos is a unique place, well designed and maintained. As a return visitor, I've met the best people both tourists and staff. Highly recommend! Tom R. from California

We stayed between 2/22 - 2/24. The welcome was superb which included being able to check in at 7:30 am! Such great convenience. The room/apartment was so spacious, and the veranda/terrace beautiful. Very clean and complete with all necessities.The bathroom was huge! The place also offered a quiet luxury, one that fills your need to de-stress while making sure you both have convenience and serenity. All Vida Homes personnel are very professional and courteous. I must also say, their food is superb! Cost to value is impeccable. From their breakfast buffet (no joke, tasted the best ripe mangoes here!) to their order-in selections! Like we were surprised how good they were because hotel/resort food aren't always as good. But we love their Nasi Goreng, Chicken Sate and Kinilaw!! Here we realized they really make sure you have the whole package homy stay! We also booked in Atmosphere Spa & Resorts between 2/24 - 2/26. My husband and I are 101% sure we want to be back at Vida Homes on our next visit to Dumaguete! So you know how much Vida Homes had made our stay wonderful! One thing that I can just recommend is if they can incorporate complimentary airport transfers in their accommodation packages. Overall, highly recommending Vida Homes! Thank you!

Overall we enjoyed our stay here, but there were a number of small misses that added up. First a few of the positives: - The resort grounds and rooms look as nice as the pictures suggest. Well kept, clean, and serene. - Staff was very nice and helpful. - The food for the most part was pretty good. Tip for breakfast: there's a buffet, but you can also order a few local favorites to order like longanisa and tapa. - The pools have nice areas for kids. We had a 3 and 1 year old with us and there are nice wading areas where even the baby could sit and play. - The resort was very quiet. We didn't do any diving and just relaxed by the pools and beach, so a lot of times we were by ourselves, or there were just 1-2 other families/couples around. (Some of this might have had to do with less travelers because of coronavirus) Cons: - Upon checking in, we were told our room didn't have an intercom. Their suggestion was to find someone on the grounds to let them know if we needed something like room service. We ended up calling the front desk from our mobile when we needed something, but this was a strange inconvenience, especially when we ordered room service every night. You'd think adding a phone to the room would be easy. - We got the 2 bedroom beach view penthouse. The room itself was very nice and clean with great views, but for the price, it was missing a number of things. For example, it had a dishwasher, but no detergent and no towels to dry dishes. Some of the electronics were not fully setup (TV mount on wall but not hung, a bunch of Sonos speakers throughout the condo not set up, ceiling lights flickering when off in one of the bedrooms). A half bath was locked up and we were told that it was only unlocked if we had an extra bed in the room. Those are a few examples, but there were a lot of little things that added up. I was expecting more given the price. And with some of the construction happening, I got the feeling that they were in expansion mode without paying attention and finishing the details in existing rooms. - Beach area by Vida Homes isn't so great - the area at Pura Vida near the restaurant was better. Don't expect to sit on the beach by the condos. And from our lanai, there was a bit of an eyesore on the beach with a bunch of white bags just lying around. - There was an issue with the infinity pool filter. We only had two full days at the resort and the pool was going to be closed those days. Luckily it ended up being down only 1 day, but that put a damper on our vacation since it had the best areas for our kids and was a selling point for us since it was right by our room. And while there are other pools on the resort grounds, it was inconvenient because there aren't bathrooms or anything near the pools, so you have to go back to your room. I feel like this could easily have been a 5 star rating if they addressed some of the shortcomings with the rooms. It looks luxury at first glance, but doesn't feel so with some of the missing details in the rooms.

Vida homes offers unrivaled hospitality, cleanliness and comfort in an idyllic setting. This has been my fourth trip here and I’m pleased to confirm it is as wonderful as ever. The staff group remains consistent which I believe is a reflection of the quality of everyone’s experience here. The attention to detail and genuine friendliness of everyone is a constant. Accommodation is spotless and luxurious. Dive site next door offers the same high standard. Such a treat.

One of the best resorts we have been to. All staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the room is clean and spacious with a big terrace. Dive shop is great with an extremely sence of security. I will probably update with more superlatives during our stay, 7 more nights and a lot of diving to go.
