- Romantic Vacation
Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted by the warm smiles of the staff. The spanish era ambience gave me a relaxing feeling of being in the late 1960s. The front desk staff where very well mannered and very accommodating. What I appreciate most about every staff in this resort is that they do not hesitate in giving suggestions of what I might need, if for example,i would need a crib for my child,or a high hair. It made me feel like they are really there at my service that alone, is worth our money. Sad to say, we did not get to swim at the beach much since it was low tide. I have to mention, the very sumptuous lunch and buffet breakfast we had at the resort. Yes, the food where a bit pricey, but it was worth it. The plating was exceptional ig worthy, the taste was high end. I can tell that they used high grade ingredients. So you know why it is of that price. Nothing is cheap in quality. Kudos to the team in la marina, the manager (or I think he was) was very accommodating, you could see that he was groomed well for the job, the gestures, and posture everything. Despite the resort having a spanish era theme, you get a modern accommodation with their sleek bath tub and all day hot shower just turn the knob left! Flat screen tv with no interruption. Own hair blower and a lot of sockets to charge our gadgets. I could spend the whole day just snuggling on the bed, I was so tempted to ask where they got their comforters because they where the best I have ever snuggled in. I feel like I cheated costabella, we paid around 4k but we where upgraded for free to a deluxe room and got the best service and food. It was worth more than the money. Thank you for giving us a splendid experience on our wedding anniversary costabella! Ps. The billiard needs an upgrade though haha. We love billiards.

Entering the gates of this resort, you already know it's gonna be a good stay. Check-in was a breeze, staff are all happy and courteous. We were able to get a good deal plus got upgraded to a poolside room on the third floor and we couldn't be any happier. Only downside is there's no elevator in the building and we were nursing our sore legs so any staircase is a challenge. The place is a few meters away from the main road though so it takes a while to get a cab thru the front desk. However, there are lots to do in the resort and the restaurant is open 24/7 so you won't get hungry here! La Marina offers a lot of variety and everything we ordered were really good. They have a desk open from 6am to 10pm where you can book any aqua activities which is really great! Room is tastefully decorated and very clean. Beds, sheets, and towels are legit hotel-grade. Our previous 4 days in Cebu were hectic and staying overnight at this resort to relax was a perfect way to end our vacation in Cebu.

The place in general is okay. It's just that the beach area is too small and there are too many weeds on the beach. It seems they do not do the cleaning regularly.

Very good and surelly will come back to Costabella.

excellent hotel, very bad sea
The hotel as such was great: friendly staff, spaciuos, clean, very nice rooms, excellent restaurants, very nice pool, very nice sands&palms beach. Everything great, but....the water ruines it all. No possibility for swimming in this sea, even when high tide (1-2 hours per day) it is bearly possible to swim, so we were truly disapointed. I know the hotel can not do much about it. Location of the hotel is about 20min walk from the village, where some restaurants/conveniance stores can be found. It is more recommendable to take a local "tuktuk" for 1eur/way. At the end we decided to eat mostly in the hotel, as the prices were the same as in the village and the food was very good. i would really recommend the hotel to have some small conveniance store on-site, at least to buy big bottles of water, because compliemntary daily bottles are to small (330ml). We really apreciated complimentary drive to the Cebu City.

Definitely NO smoking
The hotel resort was lovely and very big. The staff were obliging and very helpful, but this is a no smoking resort. They do have one tiny little glass room about 5x10 where you can smoke but that’s the only area in the whole resort and only open between 7:00am to 2:00am. No smoking if it is closed Unable to smoke on your balcony or on the beach. Do not come here if you are a smoker. You are not able to sit anywhere and have a smoke and drink.

Not typical front beach resort
WiFi was close to non existent in the hotel room. Signal only strong at public area like reception, restaurant or swimming pools. Tap water is not safe to be consumed even after boiling with the kettle provided by the hotel. So, never assume boiled water is safe everywhere. Tips from the restaurant staff was we can ask for pitcher of water to be sent to the room but we never been told upon check-in. Beachfront was MEH with not so clean water. Tried 2 out of 3 restaurants there due to the difficulty to go out for food hunting. Pretty satisfied with Luna bar's price range and food wise. Swimming pool got pretty crowded during weekends with kids and families. Overall, it was an alright stay but I will try other places if I return to Mactan.

Last day of July we found out my dad has cancer and so I immediately book a trip with my parents somewhere in the Philippines that I could have them relaxed and enjoy before reality kick us in. I booked here based on the pics Id seen online--beach and pool. They gave us the room near the beach so my father who can no longer walk that well had no problem relaxing outside. And yes, it will always be the happiest days of our lives. Staffs are great esp those in restaurant. Food are expensive but tastes well. Facilities are very laid back you could definitely relax.

Its Nice but the check in was not smooth
We stayed here for two nights and booked two rooms for a family of 7, I told them we don't need an extra bed for my daughter sleeps with us, but they still did it, perhaps to justify the extra person charge if exceeded two, note that our room does not come with breakfast but they still charge us an extra person, The moment they ask for the passport of every one including my daughter? I know I should have left, but we the kids were tired. When we got our room it was nice and secluded, I love it, again they try to put in that extra bed, I told them I don't need it. But the housekeeping staff are awesome! Kudos! they are so nice, totally the opposite of the front desk person we have. The concierge, he was so nice too, actually most of the staff are kind and nice and helpful, its just the front desk who treats this hotel as a fortress asking for our daughters passport and putting in extra charge, I hate when hotels does that, make them look cheap, Im a Hilton and marmot gold member, no Hilton in cebu there is a marmot but I really like the front beach that I saw in the picture that this hotel features, disappointed again, the beach is not for swimming its only for lounging, the water is dirty, they totally let go of it... I was surprise coz its right next to Shangrila, we stayed there for 5 nights and loved the beach and I thought it will be the same here. My husband was disappointed, all 7 of us. So, if you are looking for a front beach property, this is not it. We tried their breakfast, it was nice, the rooms are lovely, the staff are nice.. It is a really nice property, I hope the do something about the beach, it would have been really nice.
