First up, my wife and I travel professionally almost 80% of our time and stay in hotels anywhere from 0 to 5 stars, depending on location. In this instance we chose an overnight getaway at the Costabella to enjoy a bit of sand, waves, tranquility and resort atmosphere. Instead we found ourselves leaving in a hurry early next morning: We... More

I came here because it was good value for a modest budget and DID NOT HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS (because when you choose budget over quality, you can't be too picky). My priorities in booking is always, 1) the beach (so my baby can enjoy and play) 2) affordable rooms 3) accessible facilities (easier for my toddler to get around). As... More

This hotel is out of the way with not alot going on. It is quite small, has 2 swimming pools and a small beach front. The sea disappears at tide time so there is no swimming to be had when its hot and you want to cool down. As there was no choice except there restaurants to eat we ate... More

Dear Trents, Thank you for staying with us. We regret not meeting your expectations and that you were not able to explore the island further. Just about 1-2 kilometers away from the resort is a diverse collection of tourist spots and attractions including a line of restaurants. Mactan being both a coral island and one of the major tourist destinations... More

I came here for an event. Doubtful I would have chosen this otherwise. For the money it was great. The food was excellent, we were here for 5 days so I was a bit tired of it after a while. The area outside the resort was not so wonderful, so we stayed in. The pool is wonderful, there are actually... More

If you want to be near Cebu City and the airport, but in a secluded beach resort, this is a good choice. It is so secluded that you'll drive for an hour or so to get into the city, ie really nothing much to explore outside the gates, and you're pretty much stuck eating at the hotel. Not a bad... More

Booked a room with a "hot tub" expecting just that,,,, no it was a 2ft bath you couldn't even bath in! No kids meals, so our 3 year old had to get an adult portion and waste the rest, all charged at adult price of course.

Dear Mark E, Thank you for your feedback. We are quite perplexed with your comment about a room with a hot tub as we have never had such an amenity in any of our rooms. What we have in our room is a “bath tub” which is clearly stated in our website and in all our marketing materials. The size... More

We stayed at Costabella Tropical Beach Hotel last November 2013. I love that they have their own private beach front where we enjoyed the ocean. They also have a recreational area. The swimming pool is nice as well as their garden. The Marina Restaurant inside the hotel serves fresh seafood everyday (yum!). The breakfast buffet has variety of choices, too.... More

I would love to give this place a higher score than a 3, but as my title says, its more a 3.5 than a 4. We stayed here for the day, but we got a room for a whole day use. The restaurants are typical resort prices, par to its category. Flavors are good, and we ordered a lot. They... More
