We stayed in this hotel only one night - on the Valentines day - they had very nice dinner in a romantic scenario just by the beach with life music. Hotel is beautiful, but away from everything. We had only one night stop on our way to Bohol, and it was very nice.

I just spent one night there as I was travelling around Cebu island. I had a goosdrest there and I really enjoyed New Years'eve there. Had a nice buffet dinner, enjoyed the music played by the local band and finally the fireworks on the beach

I enjoyed the ocean view as well as the pools. I had good breakfast and the staff are friendly. The lobby looks great but i have observed that there are mosquitoes and i had many bites. It lacks entertainment . .nevertheless the facilities are good.

The front desk service was excellent, the people in the restaurant, and pool were nice, and always trying to help. The workers of the hotel were respectful and willing to serve. Impressed they could all speak english properly.

Good resort if you really want to relax. Near the airport but quite far from the city. Taxi fare would range 250-300 pesos. But the place is really peaceful, comfortable rooms, oceanview, nice pools and good food.

                  i was expecting a very private beach however disappointed it was not so, especially on a weekend. nonetheless the breakfast was plated, simple but tasty, especially the danggit. the sisig was great. the service experience could have been better with more smiles at the front desk but exceptional smiles in the restaurants. book during the weekends, get the first floor rooms for easy access to the beach. beach was not big but clean, well maintained and enough to remove your stresses in life

                  Housekeeping and Front Desk staff were good. Restaurant staff were always loud in talking and not caring too much for guests or the cleanliness of the place. Food choices especially breakfast were very limited and there’s only one other restaurant nearby. Pool seemed okay but we were hesitant to use it as too many people were in it and didn’t see staff clean it. Management was nowhere. No one we could talk to. Otherwise it is a great place to rest and relax though its a little difficult to find and there are no taxis around, just trikes..

                  Female staff at the restaurant and pool attendants are gems; Reception checkout staff needs more customer service training; Food is wonderful and so is the beach. We will definitely recommend to others.

                  The hotel met all the criteria that I wanted. The staff were very kind and help full. The final point that appealed to me was that we were the only European s t h ere and most of the guests especially at the weekend were from the Philippines.

                  Great location and staff. But could be better.”
                  The staff are excellent. Location great. You don't even mind that the taxi's charge a 100 peso ($3) fee to come there to pick you up. There's no wifi in the rooms. Reception ONLY. The phone in 205 wasn't connected and I asked to have this fixed every day for 4 days. "yes sir"... but it never was. That's poor maintenance of a basic req. It also means you can't order the taxi from your room. you have to wait in the heat while they call and until it comes. Otherwise great.

                  Value for money indeed!”
                  A beachside pool, a kiddie pool, an infinity pool and a good portion of beach! Basketball court, gardens, clean spacious rooms, free set breakfast, good 24-hour room service. Value for money. Suggested improvements: 1) more light in the rooms. A bit too dark. 2) absolutely no internet inside the rooms... In this day and age, no internet is a deal breaker for a lot of travellers who are totally dependent for travel research, blogging, work, and social media. Should definitely definitely improve on this one. 3) no parking inside the hotel premises... Why? We are local residents and would have preferred to park inside with security than out in the dark street. The parking spaces are empty anyway, so how come? An otherwise pleasant stay. Kids enjoyed all the swimming! Would like to come back.

                  Beach location!”
                  Upon check in I was advised that the room at Vista Mar has faulty door knob. This advice sounds familiar as some guests were also told in earlier review. So I was asked to go to SotoGrande Resort and was upgraded to a suite room. Though the room is excellent what I was expecting is the room that I have booked overlooking the beach at Vista Mar Beach location. My experience was exactly the same experiences that I have read in earlier reviews. I suggest that if you have booked a book at Vista Mar, insist for a room at Vista Mar and not at SotoGrande etc.

                  View was excellent. Food was good. Staff were friendly and helpful.
                  The hotel itself is old but clean enough. When we arrived they did not have a room ready for us because they said they were overbooked although we booked 10 months in advance.In order for us to go to our room, we have to pass through a series of stairs going up then down. Not convenient if you are lugging a bike around. We got a room with very noisy aircon but was transferred to another room with a quiet aircon after i complai ned. The room itself was clean with two very comfortable queen sized bed.The view outside was really nice.the water heater did not work at night and our toilet got stuck on our second day. But overall we had a pleasant stay.value for money.

                  Friendly staff and good service
                  I wouldn't describe the room as a 1-bedroom villa. It's just a room -- though good in size and sensible layout with french doors opening to the pool and beach view. At first, the room had a weird smell -- probably because it's not used often? But it disappeared after an hour. They have 3 pools but I think it closed too early -- 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday night. My 3-year old still wanted to swim. But the staff was really friendly (as in nice and warm). Check-out was quick (they didn't make a mistake with their minibar items). This hotel is definitely worth returning to.

                  the room was big enough, the atmosphere was very relaxing, the view of the ocean and the sea breeze really took the stress out. unfortunetely, it was too far from the main local restaurant. transportation is not readily available but the taxi's can be summoned. the dinning area was a little warm with not enough fans to go around. but otherwise, it was a pleasant stay

                  it is peaceful & relaxing. there were 4 of us, all adults including my mother age 75. we enjoyed our stay because of its serenity and its beautiful view. •location:15 mins away from the airport; entrance to the resort is on the same way where sotogrande & la mirada are located •transportation: taxi to/from resort was not difficult. taxis can be requested from the fo,waiting time was less than 20 mins,additional php50.00 was charged. taxis are available anytime accdg to the driver who i interviewed as their unit is associated with the hotel. •lobby & restaurant: well-decorated (better than i expected) •rooms:2 double beds; hot & cold shower, a/c and cables in both rooms were functioning well; with veranda in each room overlooking the beach & beside the villa pool(we were booked in the 1st/f).drinking water may be requested.the resort should have ramps for disabled persons. •breakfast: plated (american or filipino), sumptuous, can be served in the infinity pool area, order was served after almost 30 mins of waiting so request in advance •3 swimming pools: eternity pool, kiddie pool (closed due to strong chemical in use though i think it was intentionally closed because of few guests) & villa pool. the 2 pools though may be enough for you to enjoy swimming. the pools are being shared by guests of la merida & sotogrande, mostly koreans, during our stay there were very few guests in the resort. eternity pool has a lifeguard on duty. proper swimming attire is strictly enforced. •beach: during low-tide it has many starfishes & sea urchins but during high-tide, water is clear and my husband enjoyed swimming. •night-time: no activity; dark but safe with guard •mongolian bbq buffet w/ live entertainment: every fri at php375/pax. delicious except the desserts (cake&fresh fruits) w/c had bland taste. shrimp & tuna were on the list of their menu but were not available. overall, we enjoyed our stay & we'll definitely come back w/ my niece & nephew.

                  Cozy, Good food, Friendly staff
                  it is our first time to stay at vista mar beach resort and the place is really cozy.. the pools are nice and the staff are friendly and accomodating.. however, the beach is not that ok for swimming and if you wanna go out you have to wait for about 15-30mins for a cab with additional p50 charge.. overall, if you want a quiet place to spend time with your loved ones, this is a good venue for you..

                  Good seafood spead. Breathtaking view to the sea, excellent security, a choice of 3 swimming pools
                  Should convert wall mounted aircond unit to split unit type, Brighter room lighting dim. Make available evening entertainment
                  Highly recommended for family , honey mooners & visitors in search of tranquil & private holidays. We love the choice of 3 swimming pools. Security was excellent. Staff were extremely courteous. Thumbs up ! Worth recommendation to family members, colleagues and friends who will visit Cebu Island.

                  Great potential. However... Has 2 nice swimming pools and access to priate beach. The rooms are outdated, wires exposed, light switchs behind furniture and wood furniture very degraded. Manual AC wich you can't almost control, located at bed height. Will freeze you immediately if you're in bed with ac on, so basically you'll use only the fan... Facilities outside the rooms are good and well maintained. Restaurant service very limited. You have 3 choices for breakfast and that's it. If you want continental breakfast you cannot add bacon for example. The staff was always very polite and helpful.

                  I was charged Passo 3000 for my wife family to visit from 10.00am till 12,00 mid day. I was constantly chased for the money I paid on leaving to be given an invoice written in pen on a scrap bit of paper and wanted cash. I paid on my card.

                  Right by the sea front with a little private beach, I teach freediving so I brought 5 students with me. Good pool and views. Biggest problem they couldn’t fix is the aged air-conditioner, when the compressor starts, it’s really really loud that wakes you up a few times at night. All three rooms have this problem and the maintenance guy tried to fix it a couple of times, still the same.

                  Isolated with over the top type security...aged property...circa 1986 at a guess and without little upgrades,though with a nice enough couple of pools....food & drinks costing/s were near to 20% add-ons to the bill..due to the military style gated compound isolation...across fr this property a beaut 24hr restaurant exists and that I do recommend if you want to stay in Vista Mar.

                  The Hotel building is facing ocean, there is a pool in front, nice greens. Rooms quite comfy, bathroom older. Breakfast ordinary, but tasty. Staff also quite fine, less experienced. Nice place to relax, bit far from the Newtown. I can recommend...
