If you are looking for peace, ALTA Garden Hotel will connect your spirit to your soul. I found tranquility and serenity with this eco-environment. So exclusive! Seems you own the place. No sandbar but there's a bay at the back where you can see a small mangrove forest that soothes your eyes. Highly recommended to a busy person who just... More

Stayed for one night only as close enough to the airport and a had a flight the next day. I was pleasantly suprised to find such as spacious green garden resort. Loved all the trees and plants. The room was real large including the bathroom. All clean, modern and tastefully decorated. I enjoyed the pool, but would have prefered more... More

Just when we got in the gste the resort was nice and clean. Fairly close to the Airport and really cheap for the nice room and pretty good breakfast. There were lots of guests, every night there was a band, every morning they had a good breakfast buffet(not too big) and there was live cooking where you could get eggs... More

I would recommend this Resort to anybody that enjoys a relaxing stay and piece and quite. The gardens are truly amazing. Like living in a colorful jungle. They offer frequent live entertainment and also a breakfast buffet.

The room was not ready at 2.00 pm. So no problem, we had a local meeting and checked in at the front desk ready for our return at 10.00pm. When we returned, it was difficult to explain we had already checked in but did not know our room number. Surely, someone should have been briefed? In our room the phone... More

I am Larry, the owner of Alta. This guest arrived at 12:30 PM and did not ask for check in when he arrived (he was aware of our 2 PM check in), saying he would pay for room and come back later at 10PM. His first complaint to us was the morning of his departure. The only concern he was... More

The resort has a budget friendly rate which is ideal for families and business meetings. Their food is just average in taste. They offer mostly typical filipino foods and snacks. The rooms are fine but not well-lighted but has spacious toilet and bath. Do not expect beach there though they have two pools. It is a garden resort so it... More

The negatives first: The area has a lot of mosquitoes and the maids tend to leave the doors open for a long period of time during cleaning, which invites the buggers inside. Bring mosquito spray! Restaurant is pretty good, a solid "B". Wait staff are friendly and do what's asked of them but you will always have to ask for... More

CebuLarry, Owner at ALTA Cebu Resort, responded to this review

Welcome back Charlie. Thanks for the review. The only thing you left out was that standards are lower in the Philippines, due to the happy laid back culture. To get western standards would be very costly, beyond the budget of a value-priced resort. But thanks for the chance for helping us to improve. We will work on improving the concerns... More
