“Re: Tambuli East Swimming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I am a day visitor to Tambuli East. I really like the beach as it is sandy and has a nice broken corral area for just relaxing in the cool clear water. The beach is relatively clean and generally the best on Mactan. However there is one drawback to the beach. On all my visits except my last one in August 2012 the swimming area was clearly marked and protected by bouys connected to a rope. This prevented the issue of boats or jetskis hitting swimmers or snorkelers. Not so now bouys and rope gone making the area unsafe for swimmers it they stray more than 30 meters from shore. I would suggest this be rethought by management. Otherwise the beach is quite enjoyable. The cost is php 500 per person per day that includes php 400 to be used on food and drink. Not a fan of the food but that is another story.

It's located conveniently by the beach but it's a distant away (30-45min cab ride) from the city area should u decide to hit the town for the night.

Simple layout n basic supplies in the room. However do come prepare w insect repellant and mosiqutoes coil coz the mozzy situation gets quite bad when night fall.

Even was on business trip, still had the chance to go around the place. I found the place quiet enough and the beauty of nature added balance to what most people would look for when thinking of staying sometime at a resort... and with that said it made me say "such a short stay but sweet ( of course when cherished with someone special....)"

Room Tip: Rooms that are near to where their mini-port water activities are good for you if you prefer to stay...

This place is really great for relaxation because it is away from the city. The beach is not really good but at least it is private. Not the same with others which is crowded. This place is also good for divers since they offer dive lessons. Their reception is always there to assist you. Foods are delicious especially the seafoods. Yummy! Staffs are friendly especially in the restaurant. If you are looking for a fresh air and peaceful place, stay on this place.

When my wife and I stayed here. It was very nice and quiet. It is away from any city and is right on Cebu bay. The food was good but could have been a little different from day to day. But it was still good. They had a live band at night that was nice to listen to while you ate. They also took requests and I was surprised that they knew a few western ballads. They have scuba, banana boat rides and several other activities to try. Or you can just lay by the pool and let the staff wait on you. They will bring you what ever you want if they have it. if you want to leave to go into Cebu city there are taxis that will pick you up at the front door of the hotel and drop you back off at the front door very little cost.

Room Tip: Stay in the west wing. More things to do there and a bigger pool.

Ok, the place is in foreclosure so it is run down and not likely to be corrected until there is a new owner but it is cheap and the beach there is very nice. We went for the day with friends and the kids had a wonderful time. They enjoyed the white sand, clear water and the water sports. They tried the banana boat (twice) and the jet skis. My friend got a room from 9-6 and it was nice to have an air conditioned place to get out of the sun and get showered and changed before heading home (we are living in Cebu so did not stay overnight). The room had seen better days but was very clean and looks like it had been very nice at one time. The aircon and hot water worked perfectly. We ate the lunch buffet to avoid the hassle of packing but it was bad and P495, way too much for the poor quality and limited selection. I would avoid that. I hope a new owner will be found. The quality of the beach would be wonderful for a 5 star resort. Cebu needs a world class beach resort.

Booked for 3 nights but only stayed for one. We've booked 2 rooms, it was raining and the dry part to walk to your room was under the awnings with roof gutters that was just about to collapse,
both rooms air cons were very noisy and no covers.
The bath and sink were cracked and full of mould.
The sheets were very thin and looked dirty.
The towels were very discolored and frayed
So many mosquitos
The restaurant pricing was very excy
So the next day we checked out and checked in at Blue Waters instead.
