We stayed at the hotel and was allowed to have a tab charged to my room which made things very convenient. The bar has bean bags where you can chill on the beach, or, you can sit at the bar. The restaurant upstairs has an expansive menu where a lot of tastes are catered for.

They put the Hamburger bread as a bread...No flavor for butter and jam. After 15 min we asked them where was our coffee and our fruits! The women didn't say sorry and bring... More

I'll guarantee this to you because you deserve the calming. Staff were friendly, Food is delicious, and a place can only be as memorable as its view of the sunset. Ocean Vida is one of my favorite place to relax. Will comeback here for sure with my friends.

I was staying at another resort, but found myself at Ocean Vida every night for its wide range of food. The beach side atmosphere is really relaxing and happy hour is quite common but at other resto and bars, the staff usually take a fair amount of time to fill your order. Not here. The food was always quickly served... More

Had some great food here and was by far my favorite place in town to go. Great location in the middle of the beach with bean bags and wicker sofas on the beach. Nice

Sorry for the horrible photo but the food was great! My favorite one was " torta " it's an eggplant with minced meat and chili sauce, they might bring you ketchup instead but you can ask for the chili sauce, I think goes really well! I have no photo but the lumpia was another delicious dish! And the bacon cheeseburger... More
