The Costabella hotel on Mactan faces Olango Island and has a small beach surrounded by a sea wall on the Cebu strait. The beach isn't the pretiest, but the sea breeze is very welcome. Our room was comfortable and well appointed but the walls were thin enough to easily hear the conversations of our neighbours. Bicycles are available for free...

This place is great! Superb service and very clean and spacious rooms. The pools are also clean and to wake up to a (small) private beach is also a dream! Wifi could be a bit more stable but that would be the only 'complaint' I would have. I can def recommend this resort!

We stumbled across Costabella whilst booking a last minute trip to Cebu. Great location by the beach and super friendly staff. Food was overpriced for the quality, massive menu resulting in nothing being amazing but good enough for munching on whilst lounging by the beach. Wifi was poor in the rooms, concierge very helpful. Recommend grabbing a tricycle to go...

I must say this is the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel. We booked this resort since it had a beach and when we were ready to get in all you could see is seaweed with nowhere to stand and looked disgusting and only 3 feet deep where you couldn't even swim no matter how deep you...

Happy with accommodation level, service and food. All went well during our stay and there is nothing to complain about. It is a bit away from anywhere else, which is good to be able to enjoy the resort grounds, but at the same time, a bit time consuming to travel elsewhere. But overall very good.

There's a note in the bathroom that says "please conserve water as it is scarce in this area". They took the meaning of it to whole new level. Their toilet does not flush well for number 2 and you still see remnants of it after 2 to 3 flushes. It is not blocked or broken, just very bad toilet design...

Stayed at Costabella last October with my husband and a few friends. First impressions, loved the lobby feel and the surrounding grounds - nice ambience that really reflected the Filipino/Spanish design. We got upgraded to a beach side room (from the main building), which was a disabled friendly room. Room was clean, spacious and had great amenities. Bed was very...

This hidden paradise in the historic Mactan Island is one of a kind. The hotel is located 10-15 minutes away from the Mactan International Airport. It is found in a large compound that is heavily secured and well-maintained. The staff are professional and well-trained, especially in handling tourists (both local and foreign). They are always around the facility and are...
