The dives at Gato Island were fantastic, we saw species of nudibranch that we had not seen before and we’ve been diving all around the world. The...

Stayed here 1 night, and another at the sister resort Buena Vida. The 2 places are co-owned/run by Swiss/Germans and it tells! Nice and efficient- everything we asked for just worked. The kitchen at Ocean vida is great, we thoroughly loved their cuisine. The beachfront location of Ocean Vida is so incredibly special, it is not something you'll experience in...

The food at Ocean Vida was simply delicious and the staff were so helpful and friendly.. highly recommend for dinner and if you get in early (4-6pm) the two for one cocktails are an absolute treat as you relax in a beanbag and watch the sunset over the water!

I had an awesome visit to Malapasqua and Ocean Vida this summer. The service is friendly and helpful. Amazing view of the ocean and perfect location on the beach. The food is awesome and I loved their happy hour lemon drop drinks. I loved their roasted vegetable salad. When everything else is fried in the Philippines, this was such a...

Lovely laid back resort with PADI Dive Shop on site. Clean comfortable room with patio facing the sea. Bar & restaurant serving delicious food. Friendly community which is an absolute plus as a solo traveller (I wasn't the only solo woman in the resort). Great service by both the resort staff & the dive team. Would highly recommend a visit!
