                Not worth the money, and the food was average and very limited .”

                Where do I start about what I found wrong with Alta. But, first I will say I found the garden surroundings pleasant and the pool area was inviting. I’m told that Alta is up for sale, so they are obviously cutting costs everywhere. There was no movie channel just local television. I paid for breakfast when booking the resort online, but it would have been half the price if I’d paid for it in person. Half the menu was unavailable which made the selection even more limited. They charged 150 pesos for a bottle of Red Horse! I could go on but I can’t be bothered.

                Not very peaceful”

                It's a convention center more than a hotel. It was a holiday season during our stay for locals and obviously, they let locals in to enjoy the pool area. Which is all alright if you don't mind hussle and buzzle but if you look for a peaceful place to stay and relax, despite it's remote location from most services, I would not search tranquility here. Same few front desk workers seem to operate both the front desk and the restaurants, which based on our experience was not sufficient: it took 45 mins from the check-in to show us to our rooms. In the restaurant, there didn't seem to be any staff working but the staff from the front desk would run to take our orders when their other duties allowed them to. More than half of the iitems on the menu were not available. It is a quite nice area as such but the way things are organized, it just didn't work too well for us.

                This place could be nice but the rooms are really dirty and mosquitoes are rife. We didn't encounter mosquitoes anywhere else but here in 3 weeks in the Philippines. The pool is nice but the rooms just need a really good scrub especially the floors and all the furniture is very dated and quite worn, shame really as the setting is nice and it has potential but just doesn't come up to scratch.

                the place is just beautiful. staff is nice and friendly. pool is stunning and the rooms too. no issues with anything. it was great to stay for the price we paid. the only thing o have to mention is the food was good but pretty much nothing on it. the value for the food was not good enough in my opinion. around is also nothing you can go to. not even a 7eleven. I still would go to the place back when I had a departure flight from Cebu or just for a relaxing day there.

                Hello David Your flattery is very much appreciated. Our staff is more motivated to do their best when people can see the fruits of our labors. We are hoping to find a foreign born chef to help our chefs learn more about western tastes. I eat at the restaurant,and my main complaint is they are not as consistent as they could be. Things are improving now that i returned in June to manage the restaurant and the operations once more. We do offer tours of the city and the island. There are actually a lot of nice cafe and restaurants within 1 or 2 KM. Sorry our staff did not tell you about it. Larry, Owner

                A wonderful setting with delightful rooms. You feel like you're in the middle of a tropical rain forest.

                We had a fantastic time. The place is managed by Larry (American) who built it from scratch. He is passionate about customer service and runs the resort very efficiently whilst preserving a family atmosphere. The rooms are immaculate with large 4-poster beds and plenty of room. We enjoyed the swimming pool and other facilities. The restaurant is also excellent with a varied menu; large selection of wines and excellent service. The only slight downside is that it does not have a beach, but this didn't worry us - we enjoyed a lot anyway. I would recommend this resort to anyone! Please visit!

                Very pretty grounds ”

                Friendly, helpful staff

                The hotel grounds are very pretty and the rooms are well maintained. It's apparent that a lot of thought was put into the set up of the hotel. Small things, like personal robes in the room, made our stay very nice. All of the staff were very friendly and the owner is nicely present and approachable. Only two things were inconvenient for us at the hotel: 1) It is remotely located on Mactan Island. Many of our taxi drivers did not know where it was. Make sure you take a map with you when you go. There are a couple of signs posted on the main road (King Degami Hwy) on Mactan once you get into Cordova. Also, don't let taxi drivers swindle you out of money. One of our drivers hid his meter, which already had a large charge on it, when he picked us up at the hotel. He explained that the charge was for coming to the hotel from where he parked. We didn't know that he wasn't supposed to do that until we got back to the hotel. 2) Both the kitchen and the bar need more expertise in them. Suggestions for the owner of the hotel: give the bartender a drink recipe book and ask the chef to cut down on sauces, especially mayonnaise on the sandwiches. :)

                Beautiful & peaceful retreat - just what we needed”

                Beautiful gardens, friendly staff, peaceful environment

                My partner and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Alta Cebu Resort and would love to return one day. The extensive, beautiful and creatively designed gardens and courtyards provided a very peaceful and relaxing retreat. This is exactly what I needed after experiencing the hustle and bustle of Manila. We often found ourselves wandering these lovely gardens or relaxing by the large and well-maintained pool. We found the staff were warm, friendly and attentive to our needs. Indeed nothing seemed too much for them, to make our stay more comfortable. I also enjoyed some interesting conversations with the owner who lives on site. It was clear that this was more than a just business to him - he seemed almost visionary in his passion and devotion to the successful running of the resort. A gate at the back of the resort opens to a lovely foot bridge that takes one over a small fishing village and down to the gazebo by the water's edge. Here one can watch the small fishing boats pass by and look out across to Cebu City and the mountains beyond on the main island. I found myself constantly drawn to this charming little bridge that connected our comfortable world inside to the more simple world outside. One of the high-lights of our stay was visiting the orphanage behind the resort (which I understand receives some donations from the resort). Meeting these beautiful and friendly children who seemed so happy and content despite their modest and less fortunate circumstances reminded me how much we have to be thankful for in our more affluent western societies. I will never forget their smiling faces and warm welcome.

                This resort is extremely far from downtown. It's literally middle of nowhere. If you don't take a taxi, you can't go anywhere. Moreover, many of taxis refused going to this hotel from downtown. The internet was almost not available while we were staying. Not only Wifi, but also LTE we paid. Very bad internet connection. And the standard room doesn't look like the picture they uploaded. So don't get cheated. There was no toilet cover and we couldn't use hot water. We complained about this, and somehow our room got upgraded. But this time, we couldn't use electricity. But they serve pretty nice meals (They have to. Because there s no restaurant near the resort) and the swimming pool is cool. The resort itself is pretty as well. 번화가에서 매우 멀고 (택시가 가기를 거부할 정도로), 주변에 아무 것도 없어요. 너무 구석에 있어서 그런지, 인터넷이 엄청 안됩니다. 스탠다드룸은 정말 정말 별로이니, 상위레벨 방을 예약하세요. 사진 하고 아예 다릅니다. 식사는 괜찮아요. (주변에 레스토랑이 전무해서 음식이라도 괜찮아야 말이 되는 거 같아요.) 수영장하고, 리조트 경치도 좋은 편입니다. 다이빙 스팟하고 매우 머니, 다이빙하러 세부 가신 분들은 묵지 마세요~

                swimming pool is okay. there are diverse depth. but not 100% clean food is just okay. quite big place, fresh air, many trees and many filipinos there was foam party on Saturday night. but there were only few people. location is really far from highway and center of city. so it is hard to find something near hotel.

                service and facilities gone downhill ”

                Have stayed here many times before but unfortunately this will be the last time we will stay. Waited over 18 hours for towels to be delivered to the room as could not shower. Staff not as friendly as before. A service charge has been added everytime you order a drink so gets quite expensive. Drink prices have gone up. Cocktails had wring ingredients. The night we stayed we won’t allowed to eat outside cos of a function. Just very disappointed as this was my favourite resort in Phillipines

                We loved how peaceful the place was, flowers and plants everywhere, food was great, room was huge, and clean, ac was good, clean pools, friendly and accommodating staff. Overall, our stay was perfect! Just exactly what we needed at that time, relief from stress at work. Thanks and til next time!

                Terrible decor ”

                The hotel staff are amazing. However the location is 30min from the airport. The room is very basic and badly decorated. Don’t know how it gets a 3.5 star rating as I have stated in hostels that are better than this place. The bathroom is very basic with no ventilation. Our room had a small cupboard filled with junk and dust. There is no view to the ocean/estuary. And the location is next to a slum where the people burn their rubbish in the evening
