It is my third time vacation in Phil and third time in Sotogrande. It felt like home to see again these friendly hotel staff. I am glad that everything including the room is very much on top shape - the same clean condition three years ago. I just felt happy to see many guests around. I loved this new pool.... More

Truly awful! Situated in a wasteland, it is indeed the next hotel to shangri la as the crow flies- but you wouldn't be able to walk it - and our cab driver locked the doors while driving to it! Full of tour groups who pack out limited space in foyer and breakfast room permanently. Housekeeping's phone rang ALL night long... More

The staff are very friendly and ready to help. Rooms are new, fresh and clean. Compared to other hotel & resorts i have been to, this room we had is big. Can accomodate 4 people. Got very nice view at the sea. The resort is only 15 minutes away from the airport. It is very safe to stay. There are... More

The Hotel is in an isolated location with a horrible small beach. There are 2 pools, and a total of 4 sunbeds. The pool areas need a good clean, as do the tables around the pool. The rooms were clean and of a decent size and the staff are very friendly, the hotel is full of Korean tour groups which... More

I arrived late on Saturday night. I was supposed to stay 6 days but left the next morning. The hotel staff is too busy playing in the lobby than waiting on guests. The front desk ladies are too busy on their cell phones and talking to friends. Upon entering the room I noticed that their was no DSL hookup as... More

Scouting a resort to stay with my friends is an annual dilemma. Several factors to consider like security, rates and comfort. We have tried five resorts on our past trips in Mactan. What kept us from going back there are our bad experience. I was so glad that a friend recommended SOTOGRANDE HOTEL & RESORT. I never thought, it would... More

We were very surprised as the hotel was not at all as described. We booked 6 nights, left after one. It's noisy, dirty, ran down and horrible location. There is a very small beach if you can bear the sound of the diesel generators. It's full on Korean tour groups that stay a night and leave. The hotel is not... More

The hotel and resort is about 40 minutes from Cebu City proper. The check-in was quick and very efficient, the lady at the frontdesk and the staff were very courteous. They only have deluxe rooms, which was great considering the price. It was very clean, the sheets were soft, and they had a safe for your belongings and a mini... More

Location: It's right beside Shangrila Mactan(most expensive hotel in Cebu) yet the price is much more affordable. The hotel has the best 180 degree of Mactan Sea. Cleanliness: Since it's new, the place is very well maintained. Service: People are very friendly. They try to greet customers who passes by. Yummy breakfast buffet with Cebu's native delicasies. Sleep Quality: you'll... More

This hotel is right behind the Vistamar resort. We initially booked the Vistamar but found out it was full. They then recommended the new high rise hotel behind them which I presume they also own & we were not disappointed because the rooms were more new, clean & comfy compared to the older rooms at Vistamar. Breakfast buffet was Filipino... More
