Fantastic little boutique hotel in Mactan. Well-appointed and clean rooms, attentive and personalized service, well-maintained hotel grounds. Domestic beers and soda (in the mini bar) are free, and your stay comes, though we didn't use, a 24hr butler service and airport pick-up. Perfect place to unwind and get away from it all - totally relaxed ambiance. The infinity pool made... More

...how amazing this place is. It's a sanctuary away from the busy streets of Lapu Lapu. The grounds, staff, food, accommodation is out of this world. We had an ocean front room which was hugely spacious and then were upgraded to a villa with our own pool. I cannot state how attentive the staff are here. The food is to... More

This is my fourth time to ABACA and each time they exceed my expectations. There is only 11 rooms so the level of attention received is always excellent. The food is incredible. The breakfast is served in your room or even better served at the pool cabana. Dinner time is not to be missed. This is one of those resorts... More

We stayed here for a wedding. The rooms was huge with a balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Service was excellent, and the chef friendly and accommodating. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a luxurious break.

After reading reviews, we arrived at Abaca with high expectations...but from the moment we left the plane, they exceeded them. Cool, lavender-scented towels and ice cold mineral water at the airport, private car, welcome drinks in a poolside cabana whilst the room was prepared (we arrived early morning) - from the very start to the finish the service was better...

If you're wondering whether you should fork out the money to stay here, the answer is yes. I'm not a huge spender typically on holidays but since it was a celebration trip, I decided to go hard or go home & the reviews were not disappointing. Abaca really personalise their service and I would say, to the point where I... More

This is our second stay at the Abaca. We normally don't go back to the same place twice, but the Abaca has changed that for us. This is simply the best place you can ask for. Beautiful place, service like no other and great food. We didn't leave the resort at all except to do an island hopping trip which... More
