“Peaceful getaway”
Reviewed May 4, 2006

My husbad and I stayed at Alegre Beach Resort from April 24 - 27. The 1-1/2hr trip from the airport to the hotel was pleasant. There was somebody already waiting for us as we step out of the terminal. The staff are all friendly, specially Felix, the night bartender. Alegre has beautiful rooms/cabanas and all are overlooking the ocean. The room was fairly spacious and clean, with a tub (for one) and a separate shower and toilet. The pool was big and is also overlooking the beach.

The food selection is fairly decent and the seafood were all fresh! Good thing the food is good since there won't be another restaurant for miles and miles. There would be a shuttle bus at given days during the week that will take you to the city for shopping, other than that -- plan to stay in the resort most of the time -- including luch and dinner.

This resort is great for honeymooners and couples. It could also be a great place for a family vacation since they offer various water sports and activities (at a pretty steep price, relatively saying). However, if you are looking for a resort to go with your friends, I do not suggest Alegre resort. Just go to one of the hotels closer to Mactan.

We spent a week in Alegre early this year..and had a ball. What attracted us was the secluded area - it'saway from all the noise and traffic of downtown Cebu and Mactan. The rooms are huge - I understand some 60 sqm ea - with the largest bathrooms I have seen in a long time. The rooms are in pairs in so called cabanas, some 19 of them (38 rooms in total) spread over a park like area of some 70 acres on a cliff, overlooking the ocean and three natural white sand beaches. They added a great Beach BBQ recently which offers good food all day and great candle light dinners in the venings, sometimes with cultural shows. There is a main restaurant with indoor and poutdoor seating with a grand view, offering all sorts of local and international food, foreign number 1 chef, good wine list, located on top of a cliff. We mostly went to the beach but there are 3 pools, one adult and 2 kiddies' pools, lots of things to do on watersport, a large scuba diving operation, tennis..the lot. Great place, highly recommended...we'll be back!

We were at Alegre Beach in August '05 and we had the most fun time! My husband and I were more than impressed with the whole experience!
The staff is very HELPFUL, polite, friendly all the time. Our roomy cabana is perched on a cliff by the water. The staff goes out of the way to help you with what you need. Everymorning, as you drink your coffee by the porch overlooking the water, you read the daily paper, and everyday the hotel has a free tray of fresh fruits and drinking water (on top of what major hotel amenities customarily provide.) We got Fresh orchids every day! The hotel grows its own orchid in the property.
Each cabana is separated from the others that even in full capacity, one may not notice that the hotel was packed. There's several steps to the beach, and staff cater to your needs for a drink or a meal if you decide not to go to the restaurant.
A sumptuos buffet breakfast greets you with lots of choices catering to every palate. Lunch and dinner is usually sit down, but the staff is so friendly, makes me feel I'm with my family. On certain occasions, the hotel offers guests witha different ambience or motiff. The decor is Spanish/Mediterranean with a Pacific flair. The restaurant overlooks both the ocean and the huge pool on one side. There's a bar that opens out to the deck. Birds and local wildlife at times invite one's attention.
I was so pleased with the activities the hotel offers. We did the dolphin/sunset and dinner cruises, island hopping to remote islands. Instructors are available at all times if your thrill is deep sea diving, shallow water diving or snorkelling which is what we did everyday..The water is so clear and at a constant 80 degree temperature!!! The coral gardens are healthy and flourishing inviting fishes of all sorts of colors in. Aside from that, the staff assist younger visitors feed the fishes at any time in the shallow waters.
At tThe restaurant live enetertainment is provided in a wholesome atmosphere. The hotel is family-oriented, the staff reports most of their regular clientelle of 13 plus years come in alone and just get pampered.
There is a spa that melts the body to soothing massage and exotic smelling therapy provided by well trained staff.
Overall, it rejuvenated me physically, spiritually and it made my husband and myself closer. I look forward to going back there again this year!
