All the other big hotels in the area are full of foreigners (which is good!). This one offers some homey ambiance for local tourists. Lobby and room interiors are very Filipino. Staff are hospitable. Pool is not too big, just fine. Beachfront is not good during our visit season. No room slippers. Gym closes at 8pm (really early). Resto is... More

My family went to Cebu to enjoy a four day weekend from Korea. We had been to Cebu before, but never stayed at the Costabella. Although this property was a little older than some, it is well maintained. We had a suite with a view of the ocean that was fantastic and an adjoining room for the kids. The pool... More

The location is pretty relaxed and a little bit secluded from the rest of the resorts. However, we arrived very late (3am) and the hotel arranged for transportation from the airport for us. On arrival, our room was ready and they provided us some welcome drinks. We stayed in the two-bedroom seafront suite and it was great for our family... More

Nice welcome at the hotel, friendly staff all round. Average size but very clean and comfortable rooms. Good food in the restaurant, but the breakfast buffet could do with some more variety each day. Lovely pool and beach area, plenty of shade and plenty of lounge chairs. The beach/sea area was the only real disappointment, not a long natural beach... More

Very nice beach facing resort. The hotel restaurant serves a nice buffet breakfast. In the evening there is also a live band performing nice music. You can even bring your drinks to the beach and enjoy the cool evening breeze in your hair and sand on your feet. The rooms are nice and they upgraded me. However I still like... More

We stayed at Costabella for one night after having travelled around in the Philippines. The hotel is beautiful and has nice restaurants with great food, their own beach (not the best compared to other beaches but it has nice sun chairs), clean and quite modern rooms and a cozy pool area. The breakfast buffet is really good and you can... More

Rustic and Filipiniana Hotel. 35 year old resort with the biggest bed i have seen! Rooms are a bit dated but the bed and pillows make up for the comfort. Surprised by the freshness and quality of the food... surely good to visit particularly for Family with Kids as there was an Activity Center...

We appreciate your feedback, thank you. Indeed our Costa King size bed is a favorite unique feature of our Premiere Deluxe room. It is 50% bigger than the regular King and you will not find this in any other Resort. The Kiddie Korner is a haven for little kids and it makes everyday a fun day for them. Parents also... More
