Nice and quiet, good pool for kids
NOt much to do other than enjoy the pool and laze around the resort. Food is average, security not as high but nice quiet place

nice and quiet hotel
Food is 7/10 - satisfactory. Best part about the hotel is it is on the edge of mactan so very quiet. Harder to get taxi though.

must have been a good resort when new, but needs work
the good: if you look for a quieter location, this is a little further from the busier places. The mostly young Staff was very friendly, and motivated. the "not so good" this place could do with a makeover, the room was soso, and fairly clean, hot water did not work all the time (this is pretty basic and shouldn't even be mentioned) furniture was pretty old and some laminating had come off. Towels and gowns were very old and grey (probably white many years ago) Breakfast was very ordinary, for what we paid we were expecting a buffet, but the continental breakfast was not good enough. fresh fruit was served with it, but was abysmally small. We took an island hoping tour organised by the resort, and were supplied a packed lunch, which consisted of the stale bread rolls from breakfast. then offered overpriced seafood one of the islands, burnt beyond recognition on the BBQ. Cocktails cheap, but very average. Tiny wine selection, not chilled to start with, so have to wait for it to cool in icebucket. Generally the food was not up to standard. Summary, don't expect too much, and you'll be ok. We stayed at nicer places for the same or even less money.

Overpriced for quality offered
In simple terms, Cordova Reef Resort left its glory years way behind. Staff was friendly but very young (students) probably to keep running costs low. The deluxe room painting was blistering all over, skylight very dirty, front door and sun awning above poorly maintained and rotting apart. Very poor electrical switchboard, with starter for Airconditioning hanging on the wall with few wires. TV is old, and has zooming noise as if it is close to give up. Tiles around pool splitting apart. Beer was luke warm, but after instruction they managed to produce a cold one. Whilst trying to have diner, wax machine continuously going to polish the restaurant tiles, but what the owner has forgotten to do is to give the complete resort a major overhaul. Not worth the money, even though the location is pretty good. But that's not what guests are coming and paying for.

Peace and 'Quiet
A lovely place with friendly and lovely staff that are always prepared to help. The only problem for us was the absence of good wifi. Food was good, but not everything on the menu was always available.
