So if you are on a 3-5 days stay you...

Costabella's staff were wonderful and accommodating. Their facilities and amenities are also top notch. I also liked their restaurant's food. However, their beach was a real bummer. Aside from the sand being a bit rocky, the water was just very unpleasant to the point where we decided not to swim at all. There was cemented perimeter that surrounded the Costabella...

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.

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...
