Very beautiful resort. Friendly and very-attentive staff. Loved the experience. Only downside, it's a bit pricey. Other than that, I loved my stay here.

Pulchra is half owned by a Japanese person and you can tell, compared to 90% of the resorts in Cebu its great, unfortunately to get anything close to 3/4 stars you have to really pay for it, its odd, everything else in Cebu/Visayas region is dirt cheap but almost anything classed as high end is really overpriced for what it...

The hotel itself is reasonably new and the villa we stayed... More

The Pulchra is a great getaway resort in a honeymoon type setting. Its ideal for couples and potentially families. There are only 37 rooms in total.

Outstanding resort of 40 villas with private pools. Lovely landscaping. Even a full capacity, the resort seems very quiet and relaxing. Most people stay in their villas, so bars and restaurants are usually quiet. Beach was disappointing. Sand is sharp, water is rocky and murky, but our private pool/waterfall was so nice we soon forgot about the beach. Food was... More

Top class 5 star resort; beautiful swimming pool, nice beach, brand new spa, very friendly and helpful staff, perfect food in several restaurants. Four Seasons / Ritz Carlton level. Private houses are beautiful with a private swimmingpool.
