Visited Abaca for a long girls' weekend. Four of us shared one of their larger garden villas. The rooms are clean and spacious, with plenty of local touches and with focus on wood and neutral colours. Everything from food to service was at a very high standard. While there is no beach, the pool is nice and has some comfortable...

If you are looking for comfort, barefoot luxury and desire privacy, gourmet food (it is part of the best restaurant chain in Cebu) and luxury service, this is the only resort in cebu that can live up to the promise. The spa is also fantastic and having your own cabana by the pool is uber relaxing. The only downside is...

It all boils down to service. The butlers, drivers and the rest of the staff in Abaca are very well trained to provide the best service possible. If you're looking for a place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the place to be.

I could go on about the quality of service, food and accommodation but it would sound so over the top, you'd think I was the cousin of the owner, which of course I am not. Just go there and see for yourself. The best boutique resort and experience in the Philippines.

This is the newest facility in Cebu. The villas are excellent choices for couples who are looking to relax. There is only one public small pool and no beach at the resort, though this is expected as this is a boutique hotel. There are nice cabanas and sea breeze so you can still have a good time next to the...

This is really a 7 star resort, out of this world! Paradise. We got upgraded gratis and were incredibly well looked after by the staff. Perfect place for a relaxing getaway. We couldn't fault it, they treated all guests as if they were particularly special and th butlers are a lovely touch.

The property was absolutely stunning. It was a quick 15 minute trip from the Cebu airport and our Butler was waiting at arrivals! The options were limitless and every excursion we did, we were picked up in a boat! The restaurant was incredible (coming from a foodie in the wine business) and because the property is so small, there was...

This boutique hotel has big standard rooms. You can literally play hide and seek inside the room. Bathroom is also huge! The hotel restaurant is one you should try when going to Mactan although it is quite pricey. all in all good service and comfy stay!

I went to the resort to propose to my girl friend. The staff really went above and beyond to make sure the visit went well. They were proactive, attentive, and were careful to not intrude. The food was superb, as always for any of their restaurants, and cannot get enough of any of the meals. This will always be a...
