We stayed 5 nights at soto with 2 kids. Rooms are rather basic and minor minus about the aperture between balcony door and frame that allows air to flow to room and bang room door audibly in the night time. Staff is great, very friendly and they look after your needs well. Breakfast buffet is also good, although pretty much... More

Haven't tried their beach or pool area, so can't comment on that. The rooms are okay. Suites are big enough, however, when it rained heavily our balcony flooded. Reaching the room's carpeted floors. :( Staffs are very nice and accommodating. Breakfast buffet is good too. A bit far from the main road, will trouble you... if you are not good... More

On the positive side, this hotel is in one of the most quiet places in Mactan. You're away from the incessant noise of beeping taxis, from the ubiquitous fumes which are a hallmark of this country. And the sea view is nice. But the resort itself is a disaster. The toilet stopped working about 10 p.m. I called downstairs. A... More

I've had the chance to stay in Soto Grande Hotel & Resort for two nights with my family. It was not our choice to stay there, but we were forced by circumstances because we were attending a wedding ceremony in a nearby hotel. Despite the fact that it has an extremely poor location, several tourists still chose to stay in... More

This hotel is in the outskirts from central Cebu. If you're going alot to the big malls etc, don't stay there. The only pro is that the pool area is very nice, the beach is not. The staff are a little bit rude and stared a lot on my kid that have a handicap. Room is tidy, nice and have... More

I just spent two nights here and it was a dreadful experience. The beach is covered in trash and rotting seaweed two feet high making it impossible to swim. Most hotels in Mactan suffer the same problem but all you have to do is hire a couple of locals for a few hundred pesos to clean the beach daily. I... More

Pros: none Cons: poor customer service, hard to get a taxi, very isolated, doesn't have any pool, u have to use the hotels next door, not next to the beach, food is bad and room service delivers cold food, disappointing considering there are no other options near by, our room had bugs in it, which ruined food and I'm certain...

We were 4 girls traveling together from Hong Kong to Cebu. We only spend 3 days and 2 nights at Sotogrande Resort, but it was a lovely, utterly relaxing stay, Would love to go back and bring family along next time! Also, extremely affordable! We got MUCH more than our money's worth! FIRST, ON A GENERAL NOTE - Make sure... More

Sotogrande is a slightly well known brand in Spain, and you'd associate it with reasonably good quality. Stayed only our last night in Cebu there, as it was near to the beach and the airport. As my title suggests though, only the rooms were nice... Rooms - The high floor sea facing suites are really worth it. The professional photos... More
