The Recollection of our Joyous Stay

Knowing that your family had a great time on an escapade t’was indeed a great feeling. Thus, during our 2D/1N (2Days/1Night) stay together with my immediate family members on a weekend getaway was memorable and unforgettable one.

Actually, it was our very first family bonding experience staying in a resort hotel. It was an all expense paid by my sister’s benevolent-heart former foreign boyfriend, happened to visit and meet my sister personally who was working in Taiwan, an OFW. He opted to fly in Cebu alone just to meet our family even though my sister wasn’t around with us.

Just like other resorts, Alta Cebu also offers different packages to its guests who’d like to avail of their service and amenities. That is why my sister’s bf chose this resort maybe due to room accommodation, affordability, distinct features and beautiful tropical jungle-like setting.

So, here’s few of Alta Cebu images during our short stay. Hope this is helpful to those who are looking for fine resort in Mactan.

The rooms reserved for us were located at the upper floor which is the most ideal rooms for more private experience, beautiful ambiance and nice view esp. in the morning – compared to rooms located at the lower floors. Our rooms were simple but with unique features & amenities, feels like of a tropical rain forest with modern cozy facilities.

The hotel is close to Mactan airport about 15minutes drive. The place was so peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle city life.
