“Such a short stay but sweet”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Even was on business trip, still had the chance to go around the place. I found the place quiet enough and the beauty of nature added balance to what most people would look for when thinking of staying sometime at a resort... and with that said it made me say "such a short stay but sweet ( of course when cherished with someone special....)"

Room Tip: Rooms that are near to where their mini-port water activities are good for you if you prefer to stay...

This place is really great for relaxation because it is away from the city. The beach is not really good but at least it is private. Not the same with others which is crowded. This place is also good for divers since they offer dive lessons. Their reception is always there to assist you. Foods are delicious especially the seafoods. Yummy! Staffs are friendly especially in the restaurant. If you are looking for a fresh air and peaceful place, stay on this place.

When my wife and I stayed here. It was very nice and quiet. It is away from any city and is right on Cebu bay. The food was good but could have been a little different from day to day. But it was still good. They had a live band at night that was nice to listen to while you ate. They also took requests and I was surprised that they knew a few western ballads. They have scuba, banana boat rides and several other activities to try. Or you can just lay by the pool and let the staff wait on you. They will bring you what ever you want if they have it. if you want to leave to go into Cebu city there are taxis that will pick you up at the front door of the hotel and drop you back off at the front door very little cost.

Room Tip: Stay in the west wing. More things to do there and a bigger pool.

Ok, the place is in foreclosure so it is run down and not likely to be corrected until there is a new owner but it is cheap and the beach there is very nice. We went for the day with friends and the kids had a wonderful time. They enjoyed the white sand, clear water and the water sports. They tried the banana boat (twice) and the jet skis. My friend got a room from 9-6 and it was nice to have an air conditioned place to get out of the sun and get showered and changed before heading home (we are living in Cebu so did not stay overnight). The room had seen better days but was very clean and looks like it had been very nice at one time. The aircon and hot water worked perfectly. We ate the lunch buffet to avoid the hassle of packing but it was bad and P495, way too much for the poor quality and limited selection. I would avoid that. I hope a new owner will be found. The quality of the beach would be wonderful for a 5 star resort. Cebu needs a world class beach resort.

Booked for 3 nights but only stayed for one. We've booked 2 rooms, it was raining and the dry part to walk to your room was under the awnings with roof gutters that was just about to collapse,
both rooms air cons were very noisy and no covers.
The bath and sink were cracked and full of mould.
The sheets were very thin and looked dirty.
The towels were very discolored and frayed
So many mosquitos
The restaurant pricing was very excy
So the next day we checked out and checked in at Blue Waters instead.

We stayed here last Sept 10-11, 2011. It was just an overnight weekend getaway.
Pros:
1.) Cheap! only 2,000 pesos or around 46.50 USD per night
2.) That cheap rate comes with Buffet breakfast for 2!
3.) Large room with 1 single bed and 1 twin bed
4.) White Sand beaches and pools
Cons:
1.) Long check-in wait
2.) Very old furniture and rooms.
3.) Beach front rooms don't have beach view.
4.) Old Air-conditioning

Overall, I think it would be 4 stars if Tambuli upgraded and renovated their rooms, furniture and stuff. They already have a good beach and large space. Just a make over would make this place very competitive! Then again, it's cheap and a good place to spend the weekend with friends when you don't really need 3 to 5 star hotel / resort amenities!

I stayed at the Tambuli East on Mactan Island in Cebu Philippines in August of 2011. I would not recommend this hotel because it has become quite run down. There was no hot water in the Suite I was staying at. I informed the hotel management who did nothing to correct the situation. Also, there was no remote control for the television in the room. Furthermore the hotel staff failed to give me a wake up call as requested. The bathtub/shower looked horrible with large chuncks of enamal missing. I would also avaid the restaurant here. They are missing several items from the menu, and when my friend and I ordered a cheesburger, they split 1 patty in half and put it onto two different buns thus making 2 small cheesburgers out of 1. The entire Tambuli East resort appears to have been allowed to become run down. I changed hotels the next day. Although this is hearsay, it may be worth mentioning that when I was changing hotels, and checking out of the Tambuli the taxi driver told me that many other guests have been unhappy with their stay at the Tambuli due to similar issues.
