Day trips are easy to organize, you have many dive shops to chose from and there are quite a few restaurants to discover (our favourite: angelina). Hope...

Ocean Vida was perhaps my favourite hotel/ resort during our trip to the Philippines. We stayed at their beach front rooms. Woof, what a view. The staff are most welcoming. We were picked up from Maya, and brought to the Island by private boat. We were then welcomed in at the restaurant, before we were shown to our rooms. The...

We stayed in this hotel with my wife for 2 nights in November. It's really nice place and we really enjoyed our stay. Malapascua island is very small and loacated just a few kilometers to the North from Cebu. There not many tourists there. The beach is very quiet. The sea is excellent. There are just few hotels at Malapascua...

Hi Dimitry Thank you very much for your review. Glad you liked your stay with us and the fact the island is small and not so touristy jet. Lets hope Malapascua will keep its charm many many more years to come. Warm regards The ocean Vida team

This is my favourite place in Malapascua! The food is fantastic with fantastic prices too! The manager is super friendly and the staff make you feel at home - they're the best! The sunset here is stunning - it's unforgettable! The best dive centre on the island is right there too! What more could you want?!
