Stayed one week late February with wife and daughter; have been eating morning/lunch/dinner at Ocean Vida restaurant; we found it clearly most attractive among the other places around. And after a good day diving, we did not really feel like making it complicated. The portions are generous, the food is good and the menu is varied. A bit of waiting... More

You can find here a wide range of delicious international dishes. We went there several times and every time the quality was good. The staff is friendly & finally the prices are reasonable. So as for me I definitely can give my recommendation.

We stayed one week at Ocean Vida and eventually ended up dining only on site!! We explored around a few evenings in particular, but never found something homy and quiet as it was the case at Ocean Vida restaurant. After 3 dives in the day, feeling relaxed with a very good variety of food (just to insist again about the... More

Very tasty and fresh baguettes to sort out a night of too many cocktails the night before. Baguettes were lightly toasted with a lot of fillings. I had a cheese with melt in your mouth mozzarella cheese and a really great mustard sauce ..few potato fries on side. Very friendly staff

Great place or only place to change dollars. Relaxing bar with high stools . Beverly does a mean gin and tonic! Good music and vibes to chill out to.

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... More

A cold San Miguel while chilling on a bean bag and the sunset was the perfect way to round my vacation day after an early morning dive. One day I tried a few of their other drink specials. The mango daiquiri was amazingly tasty and packed a punch! The service was prompt and friendly and the staff chatted with you... More
