We had a week to get out of Korea and chill out. Costabella was perfect; the service was excellent and the staff super friendly and helpful. Happy hour on the cabanas was great and the pool lovely too. We got cake and songs for our birthday which was very sweet! We would definitely stay here again.

The four days here in September were very relaxing and comfortable. The basic price rooms, farthest from the pool are probably the quietest. Who needs a balcony when you can sit by the beach or the pool? The food was excellent, especially the various types of fish and the fruit shakes and cocktails and the service very attentive and smiling....

I booked on line with Agoda,for 3 nights at Costabella. Agoda screwed things up badly and I was not happy at very disappointing start, which was nothing to do with Costabella.

We live in Carcar and get away to Cebu City once a month. After some VERY disappointing stays on Mactan in the last couple years we stuck to some favorites in the city.

Stayed 3 nights at this resort which is very secure, nicely maintained and has a great beach. Restaurants are mostly good; the concept for Luna and the food don't seem to work that well but I think they will find their way. Service was outstanding.

I came to this resort about 20 years ago and it looked like paradise to me. Now, 20 years later I am sad to see that it did not look like that anymore. the rooms certainly need some updating and new furnishings and a new shower! It is nonetheless a very clean resort!

Been there twice and both times were just day-use. Would love to experience a night stay there. Though we've been there only during the day and on a team-building event, it was still a fun stay. Pool is not bad. I wouldn't recommend swimming in the beach since there were seaweeds all over.
