The food was simply stunning - all our guests were so impressed and Kudos to Pat the head chef, who is simply superb creating delicious food and paid special attention to our guests with dietary requirements. And all those that work in the kitchen are just... More

It was everything at first sight when i discovered this place 6 years ago and made this our favorite hideaway. And each time we come back, it always blows us away and makes us forget the rest of the world. The food is exceptional! Chef Patrick is your best kept secret. He is truly world class (in taste and service).... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but had a wonderful meal at the restaurant - some of the best food I've had this year. Service was excellent. Australian chef was very friendly and welcoming. If the food is anything to go by, I imagine staying here is even better.

We have just spent 2 days at Abaca and leave with a heavy heart vowing to return as soon as we can. As all the reviews have said, the service is personal and amazing, the rooms extremely comfortable, the food seriously, seriously good, the wine list excellent, the spa treatments sublime. It is small, intimate and for a professional couple... More

Abaca is a pleasant surprise amidst the many hotels that line Punta Engano Road in Mactan. From Shangri-la, we transferred here not knowing that to expect, as I did not do my advance research. There is no front desk, just a lovely restaurant, where we had lunch while waiting to be checked in. This is a small property, with only... More

We stayed at Abaca for 5-nights. This is a quiet and well organized private resort which still has some to imporve to compare aman resorts. However, the room rate is appox. half of that of aman's. If you live in a place which has a direct flight to Cebu, you'll not be bothered with the transit at Manila and the... More
