We decided to treat ourselves to this hotel for christmas. Wish we hadn't bothered. Our first impressions were good. The rooms are really nice if somewhat dated however they were large and cool. We booked for the Christmas Eve 7 course meal which was just awful for the price. Definitely wasnt 7 courses. The bar also closed at half 9....

We stayed here in mid-December as we had a short stopover before flying from Mactan Airport. We wanted to stay somewhere different and away from the busy, bigger hotels that largely cater for Chinese tour groups. Cordova resort is a little further away but definitely worth the extra effort. The resort was very quiet, but in a good way. Facilities...

The resort got good and bad sides. The good side is the awesome pool and the very clean area. The service is very good and the stuff very helpful and service-oriented. The resort is tranquil and the rooms are clean. The food is delicious, but kind of expensive and the really small portions. The resort is laying so far in...

The places, the views, the villas, the restaurant, the bar, the people, the reception and the rest of it was outstanding. Although Booking.com falsely told us, that this place was fully booked, it wars nearly empty. Which was good---

Dear Mr. Kearns, First of all, I would like to say thank you for staying with us and thank you for taking time to post a review here on TripAdvisor. We wish to clarify regarding the adaptor, we have available adaptors at the Front Desk but it’s upon request and Philippines’ socket design is totally different from the other countries....

Most of the foods in their menu are the traditional Filipino ones. I would say the taste is somewhat ok, nothing fancy. We were satisfied enough. Most of servings are large enough that we cant consume all of what we ordered. It end up storing at our room's REF

Well this was 'something else'. This reminds of an old Philippine Butlins, if there ever was such a place, without the amusements. Cordova Reef Resort is situated at the far side of the island from the airport. It cost us 400 pesos to get there, about $US10 and takes about 40 minutes. The checkin was fine and the first thing...

You can tell there were ambitions for this lovely, faded resort at one time, and it was quite nice. It still is, if you are not expecting the newest and the best. Yes, they have thread-worn bathrobes that are still serviceable. The grounds are lovely, and there are individual villas for each guest. That is the most distinctive thing about...
