Alegre Beach Resort Sogod Reviews
A Luxury Experience on the Quieter Side of Cebu Nov 06, 2012
Alegre Beach Resort is a hidden gem in the quiet city of Sogod, Cebu. It's one of the highlights of my stay in Cebu because I never expected that a luxury resort like this exists in a little-known part of Cebu. I found myself wanting to stay for even longer in this top-quality resort.
We only went in there for a day tour. A day tour package costs P1500 and includes free use of its facilities, beach, and aconsumable credit worth P1000 for food.
The food, I must say is one of the best things this resort could offer. I enjoyed their best-seller 'Alegre Burger'. It was so big, I barely finished it up. After that, I poured myself over to their sweet delicious crepe for my dessert.
The ambiance there was so calm & serene, it's almost as if the people inside are totally isolated from the outside world. They offer rentals for a bike, gym facilities and other gaming/sports facilities. Of course, there's the pool and the beach.
What I couldn't really vouch for is their rooms for we only stayed for the day. But in the end, I found myself enjoying more than what I paid for. I'll definitely come back.

Beautiful resort with privacy Jun 19, 2011
This resort would start at Php8000 for promo rates to locals. I only got this for P3500 bec someone has a gift voucher who wanted to sell it as they won't be able to use it. SInce I'm looking for resorts to stay in Cebu that time after staying in Shangrila for the wedding, this offer came in very good timing :)
They are a bit far from everywhere else in Cebu (airport and City center) so they provide complimentary airport shuttle service. From the airport it will take 1.5 hrs to reach here. I was picked up from Shangrila hotel in Mactan and took almost same time. They picked me aup on a spacious van and on the road, the driver offered some complimentary water which was placed inside a cooler in the van. There are also some candies and brochures inside.
The road to the resort show a glimpse of the rural side of Cebu which could be interesting for people who have just visited a tropical country or SE Asia. Animals such as water buffalos could be seen beside the road.
The entrance to the resort is not very impressive and looks like going to a simple farm. The right side of the road is the organic farm of the resort where they grow vegetables used for cooking in the resorts restaurant.
Upon arrival, you are greeted by several staff who will immediately try to help you with your luggage. They give welcome drinks while checking in and they give a briefing of the whole resort so you could go around and know what buildings/amenities are around the resort's compound.
A golf cart brings you to and from your room for checking in and out.
Alegre Beach Resort and Spa is set amidst 7 hectares of lush tropical gardens featuring 19 luxurious cabanas with 2 spacious bedrooms, each measuring 60 sqm. The cabanas are made of wood and natural materials. Each cabana has a veranda with chairs. The room price differs depending on the view of the room :)
What I love the best about the room is the bathroom. It is relatively huge with a feeling of a big closet. It has bath tub which I may say small for big people but good enough for me. They also have bath salt and bubble bath soap provided which I used :) Shower is separate and the toiletries are supposedly organic and biodegradable.
The resort has a huge restaurant near the pools. Food are organic and they make even the bread they offer as appetizer. Very interesting and very delicious. The serving size is very good too and definitely filling.
There are 3 pools (2 for kids and 1 big for adults). They are all beside each other. Then going down to the steps will lead you to the private beach of Alegre. There are 3 private coves with a white sand beach.
Here are the facilities listed in their website:
Gazebo for private functions and romantic dinners
47-meter swimming pool and 2 children’s pools
Scuba diving and instruction (PADI – all levels), snorkeling, fish feeding, reef walking
Water sports (wave runner, banana boat, kayak), island hopping, cruising
Land tours to sights in the vicinity as well as horseback riding trips
Game room with billiards, ping-pong, darts, mah-jong, board games, mini library
Flood-lit tennis court, golf practice area, outdoor basket ball, badminton and volleyball court
Wi-Fi in public areas
The Alegre Spa and massage on the beach
What is also ncie about the resort is it's quite private bec of teh huge ground and relatively less guests so you barely bump into other guests unlike staying in big building hotels like the shangrila :P
During a late lunch I saw a group of eastern european girls enjoying the beach for themselves. When I got down later...the group is gone so got to enjoy the privacy :)
