"Our stay in Ocean Vida was flawless and a great experience. We are no divers so we plainly enjoyed the clean beach, the hotel and restaurant and Malapascua island itself. We had the sea view deluxe room which provides a big room with air conditioning, a fan and a fridge (mini bar) plus a fairly big bathroom with shower and toilet. The stuff was always friendly and did their best to make our stay a great experience. Likewise Søren, the manager who welcomed us on our arrival, gave us a briefing about the hotel and its amneties and confirmed when ever we met if everything was alright. Compared to Ocean Vida, the other hotels on the southern part of Malapascua seemed rather lifeless. Well it was September, so off-season, but still they didn't have the flair and the beach in front of them was hardly taken care off. When there is a chance, we definitely will come back in the near future. A few recommendations and information for future visitors: - The wifi reception in the rooms is very poor to unavailable. I would recommend getting a prepaid traveler sim card from globe since the mobile reception on the islannd is very good. - It is possible to rent single or double seated kayaks (not stated here or on the homepage) - Furthermore there are two paddle surfing boards available. So even if you are not interested in diving, Ocean Vida is the place to stay!"

"We LOVED our stay at slam’s garden! We booked 4 nights and then ended up staying 9 once we got a taste of how comfortable it is . The facilities ( room , pool , grounds , etc ) are pristine and inviting . We spent several days at the pool meeting lots of other travellers who were also enjoying the great atmosphere. The staff are all super nice and accommodating . The breakfast that is included is amazing ! You can order off of a breakfast menu with tons of options so you can change it up each morning. The dive centre attached is also excellent . We did lots of diving with them during our stay . They are cheaper than other places on the island , have brand new equipment , a very nice boat and excellent dive masters to show you around the brilliant underwater world around malapascua We’ve walked by every other resort on the island and I’d be surprised if there is a better option than Slam’s ( especially if you want a pool as part of the experience).

Food a little expensive but perfect location near the beach and so near to the best restaurant to have breakfast in Malapascua (restaurant with no name and they only serve pancakes and breakfast)."

"Definitely one of the best places to stay on Malapascua Island. Really polite hotel staff all around and they even upgraded me and my girlfriend to the honeymoon suite free of charge. A really good and varied food menu and not too expensive compared to other places on the island. The only thing I have against this resort is their dive shop. I went in to try and book some diving but the female member of staff working in Exotics’ dive shop was so rude, useless and didn’t really know how to talk to customers. Evolution diving right next door were awesome. All in all, this is a brilliant place to settle down of a night and would definitely book again if I was to ever visit a second time."

"Tips : > spring for an aircon room coz the fan rooms look shabby and I dont think have views. The bungalow is also “street” level. Most of the rooms at the main bldg look out into sunrise or sunset views > at the price you’ll pay dont mind the errant fly here and there. It’s an island, very rural, deal with it > you can arrange Kalanggaman and snorkeling tours with them w/o talking and paying to touts, however motorbike rides to go around the island and taking the boat out of Malapascua you fix on your own "

"Pros - Booked last minute but was very happy with the room. Big, clean, balcony and pool view. Dive shop on site was a bonus and I had a few days of great diving with Mayson and the staff. Owner and staff were always there giving good advice and helping out. This is my 3rd trip to Malapascua and I would stay here again. Cons - Internet in the room would have been a bonus"
