Costabella Tropical Beach Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were a group of 6 with 2 children and found Costabella an ideal stop after our flight from the US. The swimming pools and ocean were pleasant and well supervised by pool attendants which provided a secure atmosphere for the kids. Day passes were available and nice for family visiting from Cebu City. The staff is very well trained and pleasant, courteous and attentive w/o exception. Our stay was very pleasant and found the staff very helpful and accommodating.

Very happy with my reservations; the staff were great and are very helpful; only exception was that some staff were very strict when our visitors came to visit us and I told them that I'm paying and no need to rush and be unfriendly and rough.

Nice locatoin ! exelent service ,but one problem my friend visyt me and security say my friend can not come to my room ,or after 1 hour pay 1100 peso ,after tallk with service ,my friend can stay antill 10 Pm .nice beach ,can swim in ocean !

This was my first trip outside my country I do not want to say that I am a worrisome person but I like all things in order when on vacation so I can relax and enjoy and the staff at the Costabella made me feel right at home. Their sense of confidence in their facility and amenities made me and my guests feel confident we were in good hands. The facility and conditions reflect a first class hotel. I will definitely recommend to family land friends .and book myself the next time I visit the Philippines.

It was a pleasant experience. I only wished the beach was nicer. It was, in my opinion, not swim-able. It looked like it had algae.

Always try a spend a few days here when in cebu this is the third time I have stayed and they always are improving the place and the staff is excellent

Great stay in Costabella Hotel. Only wished that the smoking area should have been outside the building.

The good news the hotel and pools were very nice.The staff was polite. Bad news the beach was clean and comfortable chairs but the water was dirty. Breakfast was expensive & coffee horrible

Beach ok..very little sand in water..watch out for sea urchins..breakfast buffet good..nothing special..WiFi terrible!!! Cannot connect anywhere..nice and secluded but not many dining options...bring your own water..soda..snacks for the room...fair enough but overpriced

The resort was beautiful and its own private beach. Lots of amenities. Will be staying here again when I visit Cebu in the future.

We stayed here for two nights and our experience was great! Such a distress from a long weekend though the outgoing flight was delayed for 5hours. We had fun and absolutely enjoyed snorkling at the beach. It had exceeded my expectations especially having a Costa King sized bed. It was just amazing. If you are to ask me if I will come back here, my response is I sure will!

perfect stay except for a few things: No on-site laundry. No on-site ATM. No money exchange without a costly fee.Noisy construction/renovation going on. 1 Pool staff person was rude. No free ice. Confusing meal package pricing. Buy the breakfast package when you book! However, the scenery and rooms cannot be beat! It's a paradise. Also, the hotel and restaurant staff are the friendliest and most helpful I have ever experienced!

The location is quite remote - 20 mins drive from pretty much anything - therefore you rely on the resort for food and entertainment. Rooms are large and very well fitted. We had a big shower/bath tub in ours. Tours can be organised by tour desk. Food is good but not cheap. I stayed on Sumilon Island, Tune Hotel, St Marks Hotel and at Oslob Seafari resort in the same trip. For mine Sumilon Island was easily the best. Nice pools though they open late and close early. Beach is nowhere near as nice as the photos suggest. My Filipina GF liked Costabella the most... If you have to stay in Lapu 2x, I'd recommend you stay here.

We got a Superior Room for 3 nights. Room 315 was given to us and prepared in honeymoon fashion for our arrival. The hotel is a good 20-30 minutes in cab from the airport, and it is well away from any major shopping or other town centres. Therefore unless you leave the resort, you are going to be spending your money within it. The grounds are beautiful and so is the furniture. Staff are friendly. Pools are also nice. The beach isn't as good as it looks in the photos, and they could do with cleaning up some of the debris in there - I pulled out an empty 1 litre bottle of Red Horse to prevent it breaking and someone treading on broken glass. It is a lovely place and you can take island hopping/snorkelling trips from the resort. We would stay again but we do think there is better value and nicer beaches to be found outside Lapu Lapu in the various islands off Cebu... A nice place if you have kids. Very secure.

Really nice hotel , staff is EXCELLENT! Even helped fix my laptop! The Breakfast is SENSENSIONAL! Would definitely stay again. It is a ways from town, but if you want a nice quiet beach alone with someone, THIS is the plaice!
