Very Bad
Very Good
The hotel was beautiful. Very artsy. We found out that the manager, who was the owners’ son, was actually a painter himself. Cool. I like their self-service free breakfast. Accommodating and polite staff and owners. They have a dog, Yuki, who was very sweet. The dog would go with you to the beach. The beach btw is a 2-min walk from the hotel. I’m not sure if you could actually swim on that beach, but we were not able to do so bec of the wave and rocks. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay to swim, this isn’t advisable. But if you’re ok with a quiet, friendly place to stay while touring the island, I really recommend this. Thank you La Vida.

Affordable and cozy
The place is big and cozy. If you like peace and quiet, you'll love it here, The owner is very nice. The rooms and the common areas are surrounded with the owner's son's painting and he is really good. Breakfast is free and coffee is great. My parents love it. There's no tv and wifi in the room. Only at the common area.

Cozy, quiet, & clean
The rooms at La Vida Orchard Resort are very, very comfortable. They serve simple continental breakfast in the morning, which is included in the room rate. It includes native coffee, juice, bread & jam, and sometimes some bananas. For lunch or dinner, you can freely use the kitchen to cook as they do not serve food here nor cook for you like in some resorts in other areas. You’d have to take a habal-habal (motorcycle) ride to town to do some shopping for food or to eat at the restaurants there as it’s not within walking distance. There is wifi but only works in the dining area, but usually it’s quite weak. However, if a nice, quiet place to relax is what you’re looking for, then this is a great place to stay overall. You can you spend the rest of the time doing activities on the island during the day and come home to a really cozy place here.

accommodating admin and staff
stayed here overnight,the owners are kind and very accommodating. they even gave us food! =) we only stayed overnight because we need to get back for work. I commend this place for the people but it could have been better if the comfort room is more clean and without odor. Overall, i will rate this as average.

Home at the heart of Samal Island
Sending my big thanks to La Vida Orchard Samal for being my home for almost 4 days. The owner and staff were really accommodating. The place is very relaxing and refreshing - away from the busy life of the city. The best for budget travelers and backpackers.
