Okey, the manager was too talkative, they welcomed us and oriented us about the hotel which i find so nice. Welcomed us with a free mango drinks as well.
Room was so clean and they clean it every day, nothing was lost even if our wallets and gadgets are just on the side tables.
Mini ref was full with sweets and drinks but ddint take any of them as there twice the price. But nice to store our own treats and drinks, i just put aside there supplies and changed it with our own.
I like the fact that they offer free water drinks thru out the whole stay, and they guaranteed that it'll be purified water. They said their concern of our health so better be safe, even their ice are from purified water.
Air-condition worked well.
Comfort room was okey, we had free liquid soap, shampoo and lotion at our expense.
Complimentary tea and coffee refilled everyday once used, and kettle worked fast for boiling water as well.
Free buffet breakfast with our room rate was same-same everyday, found it not worth having on the fourth day, nice thing was bottomless fruit drinks for breakfast, a choice of fresh mango, watermelon or pineapple which is great if your spending vacation on the beach.
Meals in their resto was a bit pricey but some you can split for two which we did as long as we order extra rice.
Front beach set-up was great, nice to chill out when weather permits. You can fall asleep in them for the pillows provided are so soft.

Ocean Vida Beach and Dive Resort is situated on Malapasua Islands beautiful Bounty Beach offering ocean views from almost …More
Private beach with beautiful blue water, close to dive shop that I was diving from and a Angelino's (best place to eat on the island). The room had a partial sea view. The fan and AC helped cope with mid day heat.
Stayed here as there was a God deal on the room
It was also very close to the dive centre
They make the best banana milk shake ever
Good selection on the breakfast menu but sadly not much in the at of fruit (eggs anyway or pancakes with fruit)
Rooms are a good size and very clean
Water pressure isn't great but that's the Philippines
Stayed for 4 night in october 2014. we took the fan room as a couple. It was ok. I ddnt take the scuba course with them but i liked the fact that scuba suits are not rip here and there for the students to use Base from my observation. Ddnt look cool having a ripped scuba on the photos from the famous TSD where we took the course. More on private as they dnt have a beach front but just half a minute away from the front beach.
I spent 5 days on the island mainly on a diving excursion. The hotel does a good job on all the basics with a very friendly staff. The rooms were fairly new when i stayed, clean, instant warm water for shower, spacious, comfortable bed, efficient AC, and a good selection of complimentary breakfast. A great deal. Close to the shore but then again it's a small island so the shores are a stone throw's away pretty much anywhere. Only negatives are the security lockers which had the electronic coding system disabled (had to use a key instead), and the curtains didn't really block out any light. Still highly recommend this for the casual traveler.
Very friendly staff, delicious food.
Very clean and cosy room.
Cold Shower and low water pressure (like everywhere in Philippines).
10 min walk to the main beach.
At night torch is required to find the way (no street lights)
I am not a religious person but I think I should become one ! After all if you are a believer and live a life filled wih good deeds you will go to heaven....if heaven that is promised is even half as nice as this hotel I will become a born again Christian !!! Oh my God...this hotel is the definition of the heaven on earth... I M an internal traveller and had never had my own beach Nd my own garden all to myself !! That is what I had anti can not wait to get back to this place....
Make sure you have one of the four bungalows on the beach with a very large room with a nice baed, nice patio, a very large shower with hot water and a very nicely decorated room...
