“A most effective place for relaxation”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

We had an excellent stress-free vacation with Cordova Reef Resort. it's the perfect place to unwind with its seaside location and tranquil surroundings. All of their staff are well-mannered, very accommodating, and extremely nice. The price was good, villas are clean and complete, and the food is delicious. I highly recommend the place.

Stayed September 2013, travelled with friends

What a beautiful groups of seaside villas with best sea/beach views in such an excellent price! Though there is not much activities organized for fun, but what I needed that time is just accommodation and privacy. It was a perfect match! People who serve here are very nice people with professional attitudes and decencies! Just 3 more words for it, "Worth to Book!" in order to have good experience of solitude and take a good rest saving a great deal of money at the same time! Why Not?

Room Tip: Nearest to the beach! It is because of the excellent price also!

As during our first visit, staff were overall very friendly and ready to help with any request. GM very accommodating, front desk Imee is potential to the resort.
You do notice a difference between the staff that were excellent compared to those that were just OK. Thanks again to all those that helped make our stay special! new management.

Room Tip: “for a great view from the terrace choose ocean view over water villa.”

i am a balikbayan from canada. me and my husband went to the resort in order to relax and have a peaceful vacation just for the two of us before we move to my hometown in butuan city the following day. i was then surprised how peaceful the place is. the warm welcome of the employees makes us feel that were not away from home. i love the place since it is villa type where we can really have privacy. the room was huge and very relaxing with their beautiful amenities, i love the bath tub and they also have the hot/cold shower. we really had a great time there. my husband and i went swimming in their infinity formed pool which is so unique. food is also great. we really had a great time. you should also try it! its worth the price and their services is great.. the place is great and i am sure you'll had a great time when you try to visit their. two thumbs up! :)

Room Tip: i advice you to stay in the villas near the pool area, and its good to stay their for honeymooners b...

We are two couples and stayed at Cordova Reef for two nights. We found the place to be rather "soul less". The huge round restaurant could do with a makeover. Perhaps some of the local crafts on display for a bit of variety and decoration. The ceiling is beautiful though with the biggest chanelier I have ever seem. The reception area is lacking in design also. So much you could do to liven it up. Yes the little round white villas were nice and clean. The bed was comfortable. Pillows were fine too. The bathroom is big but our shower had more water coming out of the top than the rain shower head...needed to be updated. Lots of hot water which was great. Pool is lovely. It is in a quiet area and far from restaurants etc. we ate lunch there and it was expensive. we ended up getting a taxi to the Grand Mall which turned out to be a great find. Department store was cheap for clothes (bought mens JAG shorts for husband- very cheap). We found the Mooon Mexican Restaurant on the third floor which was fantastic. If you want a quiet hotel/resort then this is what you will get. We and another couple were the only ones there,. Service was very good too. Make sure you book your taxi to the airport the night before as they have to come a long way. We almost missed out flight!!! If you want to be out of the city and nearer to the airport then this is a good alternative.

Room Tip: Book your taxi with plenty of time to spare if you are going to airport.

The place is very quite, have friendly staffs ready to assist specially Victor from the front desk who always welcome us. They don't accept Day use only guests so the place is not crowded. They have beautiful white circular villas which I found very unusual and the well maintained lawn but It takes us 20 mins to wait for a cab every time we go out the resort but I understand because in Plantation Bay and Costabella we experienced the same so every time we planned to go out we inform the Front Desk ahead so that they can call a cab for us in advance. But anyways its my third visit in Cebu and Im planning to return on my next vacation and stay in this resort again.

We were booked to stay at the Cordova for 6 days but changed to a different hotel after 3 at our own expense. On arrival there was lack of information and facilities of the hotel or map of complex. We are not big eaters, but had exhausted the one restaurant and one bar (which had the same menu for both) and very limited having to eat lunch and dinner in one or the other. Also not all choices were available. They would only serve wine by the bottle even though it was listed on there menu per glass.
We were advised that there were not sufficient guest in the hotel to warrant opening a bottle.
The american breakfast was a choice of one item with eggs not the buffet style expected. Very few other guests in the hotel probably due to the constant kareoke singing which was from 10.00am to early hours of the morning at the weekend and Monday when we thought it would be quiet it started at 1.00pm till late. No peace an quiet at all which is what we wanted. The gym equipment and in a very poor state of repair almost to the point of being unsafe. Poor Wifi connection in the villas very interminate and almost unusable.
Rooms and housekeeping were clean. Only a couple of staff members had good english which made requests difficult when they were not around.
On the whole alot of money wasted on a very badly run hotel.

Room Tip: Would not recommend this hotel at all
