“Quiet, relaxing, luxurious, private retreat getaway place.”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We had a quiet, romantic and comfy getaway from it all. From the time you arrived from the long trip cuz we took a detour and drove ourselves...we were given a welcome drink. And shown our room cottage. Well...it's quite a bit of a walk on rough ground as it is part of the charm of the walkway. But if you're an elderly guest on a wheelchair...I dunno you'll probably have a bumpy ride all d way to your cottage. So you have to be MOBILE.

The cottage itself has all the amenities telephone, fridge, jacuzzi, shower, walk in closets. Except the tea & coffee making facilities were sparse not as expected of a resort this class. Wifi is excellent. But it was a quiet weekend. No traffic. Few guests. And one last thing the linen had a smell, of body odor.....very faintly..I detected it as I covered up with the sheets. Seldom come across that smell...

We availed of their massage which is par excellence. It was a quiet nice ritual for a couple. They were good. Just make sure TO TELL D MASSEUSE how much pressure to apply DECREASE OR INCREASE. Don't be Shy. Or you'll be sorry later.

Food on the menu is limited and at hotel prices or a lil bit less. Portions are generous enough. Salad choices were limited maybe because of the remoteness & quiet season. The breakfast in the morning is generous and offers more choices. Well just continental and Filipino breakfast plenty of fruit and cereal.

I couldn't go to the beach as I had skin irritations from the Sun exposure. What a waste!


Overall the trip was a success.

The bath salts was a welcome thoughtful gesture for use of the jacuzzi. Thanks.

Best place to relax and enjoy the beach. Not crowded like most resorts and the view is spectacular. We stayed at Cabana #10 and the sunrise view at the balcony is great. Excellent and friendly staff. Well maintained facilities. It has a more natural and traditional beauty. Food is excellent but it does take a lot of time to prepare and brought to your table. At least you know it's fresh. I will definitely visit again.

I am a bit torn about what to write about this Hotel.

The service is very good or one of the best we have ever experienced. Everyone is polite and we felt very welcome and safe.

We love the look of the new restaurant and the view. But 20 songs on repeat for two weeks is a headache!
The pool needs some updating. It could be an oasis but it is not inviting to swim or soak in. The beach is nice and there is lots of fish to snorkel along with. The service is also perfect and everyone around is polite.

We were not a fan of the restaurant food. We are used to travel the whole world and the restaurant does not ad up with the feel of the resort. And it was the food that ruined the rest of the vacation. One of us got serious food poisoned after eating from the restaurant and was hospitalized the morning after in Cebu. We ended up staying in Cebu for a few days to recover and the led to that we had to cancel our stay in Dubai for the rest of the vacation.

At our big surprise the resort charged for the food provided during the stay, even tough someone got seriously ill because of the food. We have never heard of this before.

Hospital was expensive and we lost the rest of the vacation because of dirty food the hotel provided. A termination of the whole restaurant bill is the least we expect from a resort we have stayed at and spent our money at for two weeks.

If the hotel showed some remorse about the fact that they food poisoned someone the rating would ended up somewhere higher. They provided nurse and smiles. But that did not save our vacation.

I chose this resort after reading many of the reviews on trip advisor. There was one which wasn't so good but there always is! Anyway, it seemed to tick all the boxes and so we booked. We weren't disappointed and will definitely recommend it to friends (though, only good ones!) and will come back soon. The driver was there to collect us from the airport and the van was very clean. The journey time was about 1 n half hours, no hassle. We were greeted warmly and the check in was smooth. We loved the cabana straight away. Nice large veranda looking out to sea-we paid a bit extra for a sea view which was worth it. The room had a large bathroom n a fantastic shower. The aircon was great too as were the comfy beds, thick matresses n quality pillows. The service throughout our stay made us feel like we were the only people staying here...Serlyn, July, Daisy were all so friendly and efficient-thank you! The new restaurant sits high above the sea with terrific views at breakfast time...sometimes it was difficult to leave! Te resort seemed quiet, some days there were only 2 or 3 others on the beach. Sadly we are leaving tomorrow but we will be back soon. One suggestion to management would be to expand the menu for lunch and dinner.

Room Tip: Room 8 was lovely. Ocean view and a short walk to the beach. The more expensive rooms have a little...

We are very pleased with the staff and resort environment. Definitely we made a good choice to come here.
The staff was always available, friendly and proactive, checking what can be done for us.
We arrived 2 days later due to sickness of our youngest child. The hotel management did not charge us for these 2 nights which made surely a huge positive impression on us.
Kids could play all day long outside or on the beach. During the 9 days stay we didn't need any iPads or similar :-) - and when we had rainy day we could borrow some DVDs from the club.
Massages were excellent and sea was clean as well as the rooms.
It is good place for families to stay here.
Thank you ALL for the patience (with noisy kids) and for the great hospitality :-)

I've stayed her quite a few times over the past ten years and always had a wonderful experience. They will pick you up in Cebu City in their airconditioned van and drive you about 2 hours north to their very private resort. The bungalos are gorgeous and classy, the beach is perfect, the landscaping is lush and tropical and neat. Make sure you get the breakfasts included as they have as good a buffet as I've had. It's a bit spendy for The Philippines but blows the Mactan resorts away!!

Room Tip: try and get one right along the beach/cliff

I loved everything in Alegre! The place was about 2 hours away from the city but the long travel time is worth it. The staff are all nice. The rooms are huge and clean. I love their cabanas :) What I love most about the place is that it is perfect for relaxation. The place is so quiet and peaceful :)
