                    Great place, but gave our room away ”

                    Loved the location and beach. But we got in late (I had notified the property) and our room was given away. We’re a family of 4 and we were told that only a twin bed was available. Then we had to wait nearly an hour (was already 1 am) for beds to be brought in, with no sheets, another wait. Beds (the ones brought in) had mouse droppings and were hard metal. But other than that great place.

                    We charged extra 3 persons for P4500 (1500 PER HEAD) but they put 2 extra beds only. The bed is so hard and also they have plenty of BED BUGS and MOSQUITO! The resort is too far from the city. They have shuttle but they will charge you. They will always charge and charge and charge and charge you everytime you have request to them! I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE! OVERALL POOR RATINGS! DO NOT BOOK IN THIS HOTEL!

                    Resort is very far and remote from any amenities like shops or Mall. You should take your own shopping with you like food, snacks or drinks. Lau-lapu traffic is very overcrowded. During the week it's very quiet and there are only activities during the weekend. Expect loud noise due reunions and games in and outside the compound. There is NO Wifi, hence "free Wifi" as advertised is baseless. Take your own data with you, but expect slow and disrupted connection. You need to have the "Grap-a-Car" application because taxi's are very rare or cost extra if ordered by the resort. The resort need on some issues TLC, like the ac's are window type and mounted near the floor with the bed in front, so very inefficient. Frontpool is clean but leaking. 2nd pool is closed many times due use of "strong chemicals" [????] Forget the breakfast, it's very very basic for your 300php.

                    I love the SOTOGRANDE's menu also used by this hotel. All the food we ordered were delicious! Nice pool and beach is ok. Location is far from everything as it is located in a village but hotel offers affordable rides to the New Mactan where you can dine with your family!

                    Overall I like the facility. It is clean. The view from our room is spectacular. Staff are accommodating and warm. I have suggestions. The food service can be faster especially if there is no customer around. The lobby is hot and humid. Need better air circulation or air condition. Need a better designated parking area.

                    Yes this resort may be old compared to the other resorts in Mactan Island, but its charm is still very much alive as the resort is well maintained and manned by friendly staff. The only complain I have is its very expensive food prices due to too much overcharged in my opinion!

                    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

                    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.

                    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.

                    I think this was my 3rd time there. Each time at the end of a heavy traveling scheme and before heading back to Manila. The staff recognized me and arranged all fast.After putting my staff into my nice room I strolled around pool and then beach. Relaxing!

                    very spacious

                    A beautiful old hotel right at a sandy beach. Very friendly staff. nearly no guests when I arrived. But also all other hotels near by were nearly empty. Why? Due to the typhoon warning nearly everything in Cebu City and Mactan island was closed, but only a bit of rain and wind occurred. great weather forecast!

                    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.

                    liked the room. next to the small swimming pool. nice view of the ocean.

                    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

                    The resort itself.

                    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.

                    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..

                    We booked a room for 4 people anout 3 months before a wedding that we were attending. When we arrived we only had one king size bad. They said the hotel was sold out so we could not change our room. We had to sleep 3 people in one ned and one person on a cot. When we went to check out the hotel front desk said that we owe money for 2 more people for 5 days. Our room was booked for 4 people and paid for in advance. When we asked to speak to a manager there was none available and we had to catch a flight. Beware when you book a room at this hotel.

                    Dear Ms. Maria, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you have been charged for an extra person because you only booked a room for 2 adults as we based on your booking voucher. Please rest assured we have addressed this with the front office team to ensure this won't happen again. I apologise again for the inconvenience.
