A decent garden resort near the airport Jan 02, 2014
Alta Cebu is a garden resort on Mactan Island near the Cebu airport. By garden resort, I mean it's not located on the beach. For not even being on the beach, I thought the resort was actually pretty nice. It is, however, not in a very nice neighborhood. There isn't much to do outside the resort unless you get a ride somewhere, but they did a great job decorating the place and providing plenty of things for visitors to do.
The resort can book tours of Mactan Island, Cebu City, further out Kawasan Falls, and water sport packages (diving, snorkeling, island hopping, etc...). Transportation and meals are provided as part of the packages. They also have a free shuttle that runs to the mall and the beach every morning at 9 a.m. However, you have to find your own way back.
On the resort itself, there are two nice, clean pools with small waterfalls. The pools are not chlorinated, they have other ways of keeping the pools clean. The resort also has a pool table, climbing wall, and lots of hammocks strung up around the property for you to relax in.
There is only one restaurant located on the resort, and it's an okay one. The selection is unremarkable and they seemed to run out of things a lot. The service was also painfully slow. I got into the habit of ordering before I was hungry, that way I would be ready to eat by the time the food got there. Most of the staff was really friendly, which was their saving grace.
This isn't a Hilton resort, and as long as you arrive understanding that, then you should have a pleasant stay.
