We've visited the Costabella Resort in April 2017 with our 1,5 year old daughter! It was one of the most relaxing vacation since her birth! The facilities are clean and beautiful. The two pools are nice and the beach just big enough to go for a swim or play in the sand. The staff was very friendly and polite, especially...

Costabella has a great ambiance for summer as it has everything you need that you only have to sit back, relax, swim & dine-in. The lobby has the best tropical theme with a very accommodating staff and Ms. Cleo, who assisted us on behalf of Ms. Nique, personally great us upon arrival. They also have a coaster that can picked...

I still consider Shangri-la the best option in Mactan but when its fully booked Costabella is a next option. The pool is big, good kids area. The beach has often low tide and not for swimming. Rooms are clean, bit old. The food at la marina is surprisingly amazing. The singing and waiting for money band is a bit annoying...

Booking.com lied about not billing your cc until check in. My 1st card was declined @ no fault of my own & I was threatened was cancellation of reservations within 24 hrs unless a valid card was submitted. Upon submission of my 2nd card, it was billed immediately (the staff, I found out upon arrival, was directed by booking.com to...

I recently stayed at the Costabella for the third time in three years. This is, simply, my favorite hotel in the world. And while I will certainly return in the future, for the first time I was left a bit disappointed. First, as I always do, I reserved a "Superior" room with two beds (the rooms with two beds are...

Staff were lovely. Rooms also nice and good supply of bottled water No bar which is odd for a resort but alcohol available at both restaurants Restaurant service typical of Phillippines where you actually have to ask for another drink or desert menu or coffee etc as they are not offered routinely

Very charming resort, confortable, extra large beds, and rooms. A garden of palm threes, and tropical shrubs, 2 swimming pools, nice decorations. 2 restaurants, large list of dishes, rather cheap food, full breakfast. The service is very efficient. Access to the beach, oriented south. Very good quality-price ratio.
