I stayed at Alta Cebu Resort last March 2017 with the group. I was one of the leaders of a church group who had a workshop for 3 days and I must say that inspite of the little things that were not delivered properly during the first day, all went well after we had a sit down meeting with the...

This is the first day review of a 5-day function we are holding here in Alta Cebu Resort. I was given Room 1 for my accommodation and upon entering, the room was reeking with the smell of cigarette smoke and mosquitoes flying everywhere. Take note that the room has "no smoking" signs all over it. I called front desk and...

Went 25th March this year for a week. Resort clean and very friendly staff but did get ripped off big time over trips but partly our fault as did not check before hand about the prices. This all down to the person who arranges everything - sure it went in his pocket. Nearly all the customers were at conferences so...

Just was there for a conference PROS: Very comfortable beds, kind, accommodating staff, no more creepy crawlies than you would find at a five star resort, good sized rooms The resort is a few minutes walk from a main street where you can find fresh fruit, bakeries and other necessities. The wet market was wonderful. The resort is also decorated...

Stayed here 6 nights March 2017. Very pleased to be told we had a free upgrade from our basic room to the jungle room 3 as there was a conference and this would be quieter. This resort is used a lot for local conferences, seminars and training days. While we were there there were several going on but these did...

Thanks for the very flattering review. There is one item which may be a bit misleading. The planes fly quite high in the sky. The airport is about 10 miles away, so you cant really see them landing. Also, the frequency is not really every few minutes. I think it is usually about 1 or 2 per hour, on average....

Thanks for kind remarks about our customer service. Genuinely happy and helpful staff is the thing which keeps guests coming back. From what I read in reviews our staff is well appreciated because they love what they do and always try to make the guest feel appreciated and welcome. First name basis service gives the place a homey feel. My...

The hotel is overpriced for what it is. The service at breakfast was very bad. The 1st day was buffet. There wasn't much on offer. Eggs could be cooked for you but that was it. No bacon, no sausage. We had to ask for bread & butter (which came out of the freezer) & tea to which the staff replied...

The way you describe the resort is not our normal standards. I have been in Bohol building our new resort, which is now finished. Our operations manager was there with me for the past few weeks. My apologies if the service and food was not up to our normal standards. I am back in Cebu now, and am doing some...

Spent a week at the resort with my partner. Was very impressed by the staff and the serenity of it all. The rooms could use an update but were clean, large and functional. Surrounding area of Cordova is quiet but covers the basic amenities, locals off the resort grounds were all very friendly and felt safe. Enjoyed a couple of...

Thanks for the chance to explain our policies. As to the drink fees, we do compare prices with the competition. As far as I know our prices are not so different form other resorts in our class. At the time of booking (our busy season) our standard room was $45 per night. We obviously don't make a huge profit at...

Stayed two nights here for our Church Retreat/Team Building. Has ample meeting rooms and huge guest rooms. We stayed in a common room with 12 double-decker beds but there were only 6 of us in the room so we enjoyed the huge space. Pool was small but good enough for kids. They really need to fix their bathrooms though. Ours...

For future guests. We actually have 2 pools. Second pool is a bit hard to find. Just ask our butler to show it to you. Not sure if I would call the pool small. It is 60 feet long by 20 feet wide with a 14 foot circular spa. The new pool is substantially bigger. Big pool, kiddie pool and...
