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...

Me and my wife were travelling from Bohol to Mactan to stay over the night before our flight. We have checked online various places and decided at last moment to come to Alta Cebu. We could not book it online due to poor Internet connection on the phone, however decided to take a risk and went to the resort. Once...

We had to make a last minute booking from out of the area, and not many hotels that were appealing and located in the general area where needed to be were available in short notice. So I turned on my Bluetooth to help find what we needed quickly. We'll let me tell you the advertisement for Alta Cebu Resort looked...

Dire is quite harsh. Did you happen to notice on the same page at Trip Advisor we got TWO - 5 Star reviews? If another guest will say "Beautiful resort with Amazing staff”- it can’t be all that bad. In fact, most guests say our staff is amazingly helpful and service oriented. It is important for any resort to maintain...

For our last night we knew we wanted to stay near the Cebu Airport on Mactan Island. The car traffic back and forth over the bridge linking Mactan and Cebu is ridiculously slow. Alta was 30 min ride on jeepny. Nice welcome juice upon arrival. Nice setting. Lots of foliage, trees. Two open and nice pools. Liked all the interpretive...

Thanks for the nice comments. The TV should have been checked before your arrival and in working condition before you checked in. My apology. As for the food, at all resorts I know of in the Philippines, cooks vary in experience and competence. I have been here 17 years, so I know a lot about what to expect here. I...

This place is strange. I'm not too sure that it was what we were looking for, so maybe that was the problem. It seems the place for large arranged parties and conferences, not for individual guests. There was a large party of university students staying there when we were, and the first room they gave us was literally a room...

I ran out of room before I could post about the bug comment. Previous guest said the place is buggy. I live at the resort. I don't think we are more buggy than other resorts. This guest seems unaware that we are near the end of the rainy season. It has rained almost every day for many months now. During...

Your review: We were greeted by friendly staff with complimentary drinks and welcome lei. Our room has a calming and relaxing ambiance.

Good location surrounded but divorced from the usual Filipino teeming villages. Enthusiastic staff willing to help. Comfortable rooms. Food OK. Kiddies Pool clean and safe separated from main pool and hence, quieter.

Stayed there as part of a company team building activity. Aside from the dim lighted function hall and the mini convenience store that only had a few choices of prices local items, everything was good. Huge room, huge bed, huge bathroom and stay was comfy. My kiddo enjoy the pool.
