Booking Terms & Conditions

Pura Vida Dauin, Vida Homes, Pura Vida Cabilao

For Dauin and Cabilao, you can check availability and reserve your rooms. We will directly get in touch with you to confirm and finalize your itinerary. Please note that you cannot pay for the rooms on the website, as your vacation could include transfers and diving, plus any special requests or details for late arrival times. Our team will assist you to make sure all is good to go, before making any payments.

We are able to hold your room for 5 days. If we do not hear from you within this time, the room (s) will be automatically released again.

Island Hopping, and all partner resorts/destinations

If your booking is confirmed, as per agreement with all our partner resorts, a downpayment of 30% of the confirmed invoice is required to secure your accommodation and dive packages. Please settle your remaining balance 6 weeks prior to your arrival.
