Stayed here for an overnight. The staff's are polite and attentive. The room was nice and huge. The AC and hot shower works well. The wifi was fast. The breakfast was good. The pool is large. The beach was not really good but it is relaxing. If you are looking for a white sand beach resort I recommend you to go to Crimson, Shangrilla and Movenpick, same price but they have a white sand beach.

You are led to believe that this is a true luxury resort due to the outrageously expensive price and false marketing of the webpage offering something exceptional. The hotel is old, terribly located, design is not up to par with a luxury resort of today and probably had its golden days in the past. The toilet was leaking all night/never stopped to flush, bathtub not welcoming due to the usage and age. Room small and worn down. The pool was cracked on multiple locations and cute chickens running around the pool using the pool as a fountain (something our kids loved). The beach and water stretch was not welcoming swimmable (dirty & reefs), why the hotel has so big pools, advice to use the hotel boat for a day trip to nicer waters/beaches. The hotel is located on a terrible trafficked 2h drive from the airport and right off a busy trafficked street/highway. Hotel situated next to a huge electrical coal plant and a cement factory that you see when standing on the beach. The air in the area is not of good quality. The food was good, clearly a talented team, but very pricy and portions small. Staff extremely nice and massively polite, sometimes it even felt forced. The other guest we met was only Japanese, polite and respectful people of nature, my five cents why the hotel does not receive more complaints and have decent reviews. Anyone expecting anything close to a luxury resort will be massively disappointed. Avoid Pulchra Resort – We recommend Abaca Resort or Crimson as good alternatives.

This property is absolutely perfect IF you're looking for the following: -a relatively small and quiet resort, beautifully maintained with more gorgeous flowers and plants than you could imagine -friendly and professional staff who go above and beyond to provide excellent service -several restaurants that have plenty of delicious offerings I really cannot emphasize enough how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay here. It was truly a tropical paradise of calm and quiet, a lovely stretch of beach, and the most glorious array of flowers I've ever seen at a resort. Highly recommend for a calming, restorative holiday.

In comparison to Bluewater Maribago or J-Park, for example - a MUCH quieter hotel with spectacular plants & greenery. We visited twice for 1-night - heading to Moalboal & back - staying in their 2-bedroom Pool Villa. The kids loved the pool, a great size for a private villa. The bedrooms are spacious & the shower & Jacuzzi tub the best I've seen in Cebu. The staff are friendly but not intrusive - as I've found at other Cebu hotels. The food is cheap in comparison to the much over-priced (for Cebu market) accommodation rates. Breakfast was ok but not outstanding/memorable (as per Radisson's buffet), the poolside evening menu delicious but small servings. The beach is fine - small (same at Maribago or Shangri-La - yet to find a Cebu-City hotel with a spectacular beach) - but very quiet and relaxing. Mainly guests seem to stay at their villas as on both visits we rarely saw people & staff said the hotel was over 50% full. The public pool area is large and interesting for children, with some small bridges, a strong fountain area to swim under and a curving circle shape, flowing around the restaurants. (Lifeguard very attentive to the kids & offering towels, assistance to them.) The Spa menu was hugely overpriced, so didn't bother - more than double the cost of same treatments at Radisson. If you're looking for a quiet location to enjoy a very beautiful villa (with/without a pool), and enjoy to see all the plants & trees Cebu has to offer - this is the place. And for kids there is a sense of safety, they can roam around the hotel's grounds in comfort. If you need shopping malls outside the door & exciting nightlife - give it a miss. Personally can't wait to return but wish they'd drop accommodation rates by 1/3...

In short. Rooms - new and lovely. some nice touches with flowers etc.lots of mosquitos Pool area - also lovely and well designed. Maybe not so much if the place is full Beach - nice although sand is clearly shipped in from elsewhere Food - really quite poor. The website promised a buffet breakfast. We were told they only do this if there are enough people. And then told us we could only pick certain choices from the menu. Asian food really bad if you live in Asia. Western food also bad. Choices very limited for non meat eaters. There is nowhere else to go. Service - Polite and helpful but staff fairly uninformed. Service friendly but not at all classy. Diving.massage and other activities - overpriced considering how little it costs elsewhere. And beware the 22% service taxes which pushes up the price more. Wifi - only usable in and near the lobby, not in room. In short - way overpriced but what you get.
