I stayed here for a week in February 2015 with my wife, we had just gotten married and included a stint here as part of our honeymoon. I booked this resort initially because it is reasonably priced and it has a lot of excellent reviews on trip advisor. While we were in Alta we took a couple of day trips... More

The resort was nice. It was quiet. The staff was friendly. They often book funny little live entertainment things at night. The rooms are nice. They have a tiny shop to buy things from any time of day, in case you forgot toothpaste or a swimsuit, or just want a beer or something. Oh, but the location. To get to... More

I absolutely loved this resort. I booked the Valentine's day package which included an amazing 5 course candlelight dinner that came with a private waiter along with a very nice room. In fact, I even proposed to my girlfriend at the resort. The staff was very excited for us, and they went out of their way to make the stay... More

My wife and I spent a fine weekend at The Alta. There is no beach area but two pools are available. The fitness area is very poor. I spoke with resort manager about this problem. The resort is undergoing some changes for the better. As I strolled around the area I could see where this place is headed . The... More

This is the second time we stayed at this resort. We will be back again, and again. We had a Christmas get together in one of our siblings home and the drive was too long, so we booked two rooms. The place is homey, with lush garden, native ambience and my favorite hammock. There are two swimming pools, and a... More

The resort is quite amazing with 2 swimming pools, lively bar, karaoke and rock climbing facilities, an alley overlooking mangroves, pool and carrom tables and various room set ups. The only drawback I experienced was with the food quality and restaurant. They were certainly not upto the mark, considering the otherwise fantastic resort !

My husband and myself stayed for 3 nights and 4 days at the resort and we had a very AWESOME EXPERIENCE. Who could have thought that in the middle of "barangay" or in the heart of it you can find a wonderful place to hide away the hustle of the city.... full of serenity, great place to unwind. Their staff... More

Stayed here for 11 days and I thoroughly enjoyed all the time I spent here. It is located well away from all the other resorts on Mactan Island so I feel you get more of a relaxed feeling than all the other resorts located along the southern end of the island. The on site restaurant served a lot of Philippine... More

Alta Cebu is best for team buildings, seminar or any group activities. The great thing is its ambiance that it will help you unwind away from the city. It's not that big though yet its cozy enough for activities. We had our team building and we had a blast however, there was problems with the rooms. The first room we... More

Service is awful...our room's water heater does not work that I have to follow up several times and was only replaced past 12midnight, worst, there's no water supply on our last day and felt so stressed because we are worried that we might missed our flight...I would definitely not recommend it...

CebuLarry, Owner at ALTA Cebu Resort, responded to this review

We are sincerely sorry about the incident you mentioned. Perhaps you can imagine our frustration that we had problems on the day of a big function- bad luck for us and for you. On the vast majority of days we experience no problems or only minor ones. To be fair- to put it in reasonable perspective- we immediately responded when... More
