Reviewed January 17, 2012

the place is very run down, must have been a lovely place years ago
there are photos of guests from years ago all over the walls,even in the bedroom which
we found a bit strange
the food is not very good, a gourmet 5 course meal was ( advertised as gourmet),piece of fried chicken, rice, noodles, and tinned fruit, that is 4 not 5, not being picky but best not to advertise things thats you are not going to give
it is far from everywhere else so you depend on them for food etc,
waited 15 minutes to order something to eat, the one man seems to do everything
all the things advertised like, swimming pool with slide, slide has paint peeling off, cannot use, all sports things to use all grown over
would recommend you give this place a wide berth

We are truly sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Virgin Beach Resort. We are constantly trying to give good value, good food and good service. I wish you would have complained to our on site manger about the item lacking in our meal. We do not wish to mislead any one and our apologies to you. We will try harder. We are constantly touching up paint, repairing pool and waterslide, and maintaining the landscaping, but since you were there during our rainy season, we were not able to keep up with the maintenance we usually have. If you will contact us thru our web site, we will gladly reimburse you for your stay.

Virgin Beach Resort is one of the best places to stay in the northern part of Cebu. They not only have clean rooms and a spacious area, they also serve mouth-watering dishes. The best thing about this beach resort is that family members who don't like salty waters can choose to stay at the swimming pool. The hospitable crew members, especially Jomar and Nikka, are always there to assist you.

Room Tip: Ask the crew to let you see the different variety of rooms.

We visited VBR and true to what is said on their website it’s off the beaten path. The place is awesome and the only thing you can hear is the sea breeze and waves crashing perfect for those romantic times with someone. It is like back to nature thing if you are a city dweller. Food is great reminds me of the time when I visit my relatives back in the province during fiesta. The staffs are very accommodating and are always paying attention to your needs. Great Food, Great People, Great Location!

The place is great for those who want to spend a day or two or even a week away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The place is so serene and peaceful, especially at night, the only thing you'll hear are crickets and the waves in the sea.

at sunrise, you'll have a breath-taking view of the rising sun. greets you everyday.
fresh air is priceless... you can't find any fresh air here in cebu city... the sea-breeze just takes all the stress out of your system.

the ride to Virgin Beach Resort Cebu may be bumpy from the main road, but the travel is worth it.

The food is a mix of a fine dining and the traditional. every guest can relate.
I hate the food... because I hate to stop eating...

actually it's very good, especially for me a Filipino. they cook pinoy foods pretty well.

the swimming pool is great especially for my kids, they just had fun.

they also have a mini zipline, to those who would like to have a dose of adrenaline rush.

When you're there, you just have to try their Virgin Sunrise...

you'll know what it is, when you're there,

Hope to be back there someday...

Kudos to Ron and his family...

Thanks, Frinza, for taking the time to write a review of Virgin Beach Resort. We agree that the sunrises at Virgin Beach Resort are one of the main attractions. We're glad you enjoy the quiet, peaceful solitude as this is what we try to market. Our resort is not for someone who wants lots of crowds and noise. We hope you'll return soon.

It's out of the way, but that means it's quiet of street noise and quaint! Impeccable customized service and great food (be careful or you will get fat!). Great grounds and pool with slide.You can visit the surrounding area via customized transportation, or go on your own. Sometimes you can hear nothing but your steps and swaying of the banana tree leaves. Relaxing. Once you slow down and get into it, you feel a part of it, and it will become depressing when it's time to leave. Central lodge with cable, karaoke, activities; sometimes you can catch a barrio fiesta. A great retreat from noisy areas of Cebu. Great staff!
