I had a wonderful stay in Vida Homes and would love to come back someday. We got a two bedroom condo for 6 days. Loved the master bathroom with stone tiles and frosted glass windows. It's as if I was showering outdoors. Great wifi, nice variety at breakfast, infinity pool, bar and food service, and impeccable decor. Also next door to Sea Explorers for diving activities. Fantastic staff and housekeeping! I didn't give it 5 stars because the transportation options are exorbitant. For example the cost of getting a tricycle (at the hotel) round trip to the Malatapay Market was 600 pesos. And the cost of hiring an all day van from the hotel is 3000 pesos per person. It's quite a lot and we had to look elsewhere for those services in order to tour Dauin and Dumaguete. Otherwise, good value hotel with luxurious amenities. Thanks to Chris for a warm welcome during our stay!

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with friends

We had our family reunion on this resort and booked over 10 rooms. I was very impressed with the whole resort. I had a two bedroom unit for my family of four. The rooms were very comfortable, the bathroom was excellent, the rooms were spacious with living area, kitchen, dining room and your own patio. The landscaping on the gardens were great, and everything was very clean. We had a few hiccups on the initial bookings which were kinda stressful as some rooms had not finished construction on time and we were a big group of 50 people but the staff sorted everything out as we got there. The room where my mother stayed however had a stench of sewer coming from the drains of the bathroom but having constructed my home recently, i know that sometimes happens for new structures. The staff were very friendly and the service was great. My only complain from our whole stay was that the beers on the pool bar were not very cold. They need to sort their chilling capacity on the pool bar. Overall, we had a great reunion and i would definitely look to stay in this resort again.

Room Tip: ground floor room closest to the beach are the best

Hello Antonio,

thank you very much for your review of our condo resort and for choosing our place for your grand reunion. Yes we tried our very best to get all the rooms done in time but weather conditions and other factors did not play in our favor, but we are very thankful for your patience and understanding. We are glad you pointed out the issue with the smell from the drainage which has also been addressed and resolved, and we can asure that all the rooms don't have this issue anymore. The chiling capacity of our drinks has also been reorganized, we apologize for this inconvenience since this was the first time the resort was open with a higher room capacity. We will be looking forward your next visit here where you can enjoy the fully completed resort including the new lap pool as well as the new villas. Big regards from Tess and the whole Vida Homes family

The property is located roughly around 45 minutes to 1 hour of Drive from the Airport. You may get car transportation from the airport for 700 pesos.

Check in: Experienced a bit of a hiccup checking in as we were told they have not received our online booking. Something about their main reservation team based in Cebu not being able to forward our booking to them. We waited for about 30 minutes until we were assisted to our room. This was a bit of inconvenient as we just really want to rest after the long travel. Nevertheless the foreign manager's presence who keeps apologizing for their lapse, had this experience almost irrelevant.

The room was clean, crisp and perfect in every detail. It is as beautiful as it is in the photos in their website. The bathroom has a spa-feel which is extremely relaxing and screaming holiday. Pool is squeaky clean and surroundings are well maintained.

The restaurant is located in Pura Vida, the nearby resort. And is open until 10pm only. So, make sure to make it to dinner before the restaurant closes as there are no other options for food after that late (even fastfood). The menu is full of variety. Food was delicious.

Pura Vida has trips for Oslob Whale Shark Watching and Apo Island but I will recommend just planning your own trip if you wish to see as much of the attractions, especially for those who are planning to stay for just a few days. The trips offered in Pura Vida will use up the whole day as you will just be tagging along with the Divers. You will then have to wait for 1-2 hours for the Divers to come back and off to the next diving spot. They have as much as 4-5 stops.

Staffs are friendly and would go extra mile to help you. Definitely worth coming back!

Room Tip: Request for the beach side rooms!

This condo-hotel is realy amazing. Everything was great. The apartments are spacious, luxurious and very nicely decorated. The swimming pool is realy beautiful, without any chemical and just next to the poolbar where we had amazing cocktails without getting out of the pool...
The team was very firendly and efficient...
Just next to vida Homes, there is Pura Vida which is same management. There we enjoyed very good international food in the restaurant and also dove with the best diving center we dive with in the Philippines. If you like diving make sure to go to Apo island (Coral garden) and to Oslob (Whale Sharks)
I would definitivly recommend this place to everybody... Really nothing negative to say about it...
