I stayed at the Alta Resort this March 2010 in a Deluxe room. The place is very, very quiet. I met the owner a nice American man who admits its his first time to run a resort. He is looking at doing some renovations sometime soon to brighten the place up. Firstly the mysterious ALTA who I admired in all the publicity photo's was not there. Hotel staff told me she stays in Manila! The reception staff are excellent in this resort. Quick to fix any problems and very friendly. Other resort staff are quiet and reserved. I had a tour organised while I was there and found it very informative and pleasant exploring the surrounding area. No real activities when i was there within the resort and very few guests. The pool was clean and nice ( thanks Larry ) There is no night club in this resort, it is long shut down. The bar is in need of renovation especially the old pool table. The petting zoo is only a few monkies and not much else. The gym was not airconditioned so sweating it out was the order of the day! The rooms are adequate and good value for the price. Airconditioning had to remain on constantly to cool the room in the hot Cebu climate. The bed was fine and the sheets clean. The bathroom was ok and the towels replaced daily. Taxi prices can be as low as 120 peso to SM Cebu City or as high as 300 peso depending on the driver and time of day. We felt safe in the resort but the surrounding area outside the resort is not so good after dark. The restaurant was clean and the free breakfast varied from average to good depending on the day. Waiter staff were friendly and quick to respond to requests for brewed coffee in the mornings. If you are after a quiet location and some alone time this place is ideal. The internet computers had only one mouse that a kind receptionist gave me but the one that was turned on worked fine. I am sure after some TLC Larry will bring it back to the way it looks in the online advertisements. Overall a pleasant stay.
