Best trip ever!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jan 12, 2024
We spent a month at Vida Homes and had the best trip ever. All the people there were fantastic and always helpful. They made us feel like family during all the holiday events, we never missed the snow back home! The facilities and food/drink options are top notch. There is amazing snorkeling/diving just right off the beach or a short walk away. This was far and away our best vacation trip.

    We stayed for 4 nights a Vida Holmes in Dauin, Negros Oriental, Philippines. The condos were extraordinary. They were roomy, light, and homey. It was a very relaxing resort. We had a second floor condo with an exceptional balcony for enjoying the evenings and beautiful views of the property. The food was exceptional. We would return to this resort in the future. Clean, airy, and comfortable.

    Room tip: Get a second floor room close to the beach

    This is my 5th visit to Vida Homes and it remains as perfect as the first time. As well as fantastic accommodation the gardens are beautifully manicured and worked on every day. They are so pretty. A special thank you to the talented gardeners.

    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.

    Hi Angeldelight! The entire Vida Homes team is so happy for taking time to write a detailed and awesome feedback on our property and services. The pandemic may have forced you to stay with us but it turned out to be a beautiful experience, you both found family and friends, you even influenced us to live a healthy lifestyle like walking everyday (though we're doing it early in the morning). Thank you for the friendship and we are looking forward to your next visit 18 months from now. Hugs and stay safe always from you family and friends in Dauin! :)
