Poor excuse for a resort
the beach during high tide is all I can think of
I was really disappointed with this resort,from the moment I first entered the hotel the receptionist at the front desk seemed unhappy to see me and paid me no mind,it was downhill all the way after that.My main beef with this resort is its location,it's inside a subdivision where tricycles are not allowed inside to fetch passengers who want to go to nearby places like restaurants and convenience stores although taxis are allowed. It's a long walk to the guard house which is the main entrance,if you want to hail a tricycle and even then tricycles that pass by are as rare as a hen's tooth.There's only one restaurant in the hotel and the food is mediocre and quite expensive.They have buffet dinner during certain days but better come in early for the food gets gobbled up real quick and they don't get replenished.This hotel is located in Mactan which is far from Cebu City,taxi fare to Cebu City costs about Php300 but the fare going back to the resort is another matter because you will be charged extra from Cebu City owing to the remoteness of the resort the taxi cannot get a passenger on its way back to the city.So if you intend to book in this hotel get ready to pay tourist prices for everything the hotel food,the taxis,the boat for island hopping even the tricycles and also overpriced mediocre food and unfriendly hotel staff.

Satisfactorily okay.
Accommodation, Beach Resort Ambiance, Staff
It was satisfying. Vista Mar has really good Beach ambiance and good price value. 1 Breakfast is enough for 2. Staff was helpful but there may be just a few of them reason why it takes some time for them to come to the room. The location is good for non-Commuters. We had a lot of bags and we needed to walk outside the village. It would have really been great if we have our own car or in our case we should have rented a car service so we didn't have the hassle. Overall it was satisfying. The VistaMar Receptionist even helped me print our my Boarding Pass while Foreigner friends stayed in a Luxurious Hotel (Shang****)needed to pay P45/paper and there were 7 of them. HAHAHA! VistaMar was so GREAT my family got ours for FREE and Ann (The Receptionist) even chatted with me and speaks very good english and gave me the print out with her most beautiful Cebuana Smile.

Perfect for family with young and/or older childre
Pool, Food and not crowded
The Front office wasn't friendly at first, I felt like there was something wrong because I booked with Agoda, the staff were talking at each other quietly and I feel like it was rude and they were pushing us to stay at the next door hotel (sister hotel) but I insisted because I wanted the ocean view, we have 4 rooms total. Overall, it was a great experience, we had fun, the kids love the pool and cheap food.

Very comfortable stay with beach, pool and dining
Beach, swimming pool, food
Vista Mar set up rooms for us in the building in opposite side of road, which might be of the same owner. That's great when the room is bigger, swimming pool is better and still, we can use facilities of Vista Mar (beach and beach front swimming pool). Breakfast is good. Wifi is ok at lobby, not in room.

A quiet stay at a small resort
The food is quite nice, with free breakfast daily. There are not many visitors so it's quiet. Staff are polite.
The room is spacious with basic equipment, the air conditioner is very noisy however. The beach is very small and not quite suitable for swimming. The pool is ok but there is not enough sun bed provided. The hotel is so remote that it takes half hour to travel to cebu city and there is nothing to see nearby.

Thumbs up
Nice pool, great staffs, pleasant view
Overall it was great. Although its kinda scary to walk through the hallways during the night. No wifi inside the rooms. Dirty floors. But the view from our room was the best. Me and my friend enjoyed our stay. Of course especially with a comfy bed ;)

Cheap and cheerful. Would go elsewhere next time
The pool The sea side viewFriendly staff
Very slow service. Stray cats everywhere. Cheap furniture. Lack of attention to service. Ugly empty swimming pool. No effort with the food. Staff we're very pleasant and friendly, however would at times have to clean our own tables instead of waiting.
