This place is really for couples...but my wife and I took our two kids anyway :-) Excellent personalised service and a very good restaurant. Small pool but the genuinely attentive service more than made-up for that. I think the hotel only has 9 rooms...and its very calming not to be in Cebu's normal package tourist frenzy. Its on the ocean,... More

It's hard not to love the Abaca. It's the perfect place to go for a weekend trip (I'm from Hong Kong and took my girlfriend there for a weekend trip). We booked our room less than 48 hours in advance which actually led to pretty reasonable prices. The view is beautiful, and the staff and service are incredible. They know... More

Our long-overdue romantic getaway to Abaca finally pushed through in late 2011. We only had time for an overnight stay and were very upset to find out that our 3:00 pm flight was delayed to 6:00 pm. That left us less than 24 hours to enjoy Abaca. We imagined having cocktails while watching the sunset from a cabana and ended... More

It is hard to avoid repeating what others have already said, but this place is pure magic. The people are so awesome and we felt like royalty when we stayed there. Down to the last detail, this resort is the ultimate splurge. It is expensive, but well worth the money if you have a special vacation planned. In addition to... More

We stayed here over Christmas, I was slightly apprehensive as we were traveling with a two year old and this did look like quite a 'grown up' resort, but reviews said the staff were great with kids so I figured we'd give it a go. It's quite central and as you turn off a busy street into the resort you... More

Instead of just echoing the other awesome reviews, let me just add 1 experience that truly shows the level of dedication the staff gives to service My girlfriend and I wanted to experience the famous cebu lechon for lunch so we asked the staff where the nearest resto was. They said it was about a 10 minute drive away, and... More

We stayed at this property in what you would term as "peak season" and as all the other reviews stated, everything was seamless. We were a big group (9 pax) with ages ranging from 22 - 78 requiring 4 rooms and after the trip, everyone said they had a really great and relaxing time! It is what a vacation should... More

As a celebration, my wife and I splurged on a weekend away at Abaca in Cebu (Mactan Island). Sandwiched a bit unglamoriously between to looming beachfront resorts, Abaca nonetheless provides an impeccable setting, fantastic service, great food and an easy location. We left metro manila at 10 and by noon were checked in and sitting in a cabana. The check-in... More
