I have been visiting Cebu for a number of years as my wife originates from the there. Our trip this time starting in early January was for 4 weeks and we had an itinerary mapped out where we would be staying both in the city and the provinces. My wife was keen to have her sisters and their 2 young children stay with us for a few days as they had never had anything that resembled a holiday and we decided that Alta would be ideal as there would not be the restrictions that a conventional hotel would bring. Well we were not wrong Alta is not conventional, it can best be described as a collection of bungalows set in a tropical rainforest, but with all the modern amenities. The kids loved it, they had the freedom to roam the grounds safely and use of the pool which they spent hours enjoying. As for the adults what more could you want than just sitting arround the pool relaxing and enjoying a drink. As for the food it was fine, breakfast was freshly cooked and adequate and the evening meal was varied and delicious and they also stock some decent wines. Staff wise they can't be faulted always polite and smiling. Some of the previous reviewers have made mention of the problems with taxis. We never found this, if we asked the reception to order a taxi it was there within 5 minutes and it was always metered and therefore we were never ripped off. On our last day after checking out we were moving to a hotel in Cebu city centre and reception asked if we would like to use their own car and driver. which we did and we driven door to door for 600 pesos not expensive by western standards. finally I would like to say thanks to Larry the owner of the resort, he's very hands on and if there are any minor niggles he will get them sorted..Would we go back to Alto yes we will, hopefully towards the end of the year and the kids are alreadyexcited at the prospect.
