This year, I had the pleasure to visit several attractions both inside and outside Cebu, experience several different cultures.On the run, I had the chance to experience and see the enchanting and traditional hotel in Cebu, the Costabella Tropical Beach Resort. Together with the fellow Cebu Bloggers and other media groups.
I’ve been to many luxury resorts in Mactan island, Cebu but this one has the perfect setting to admire Mactan’s enchanting coastline.
What’s in a name?
Costa is a Spanish word of’ beautiful coast” where it provides the travelers and guests a perfect setting of Mactan coastline. This is a family oriented hotel and perfect for honeymooners.
When the resort was opened many years ago, they just started with 16 rooms. As they continue to kept its tradition of genuine caring, old-fashioned hospitality and world-class service through the years. They have now a total of 156 relaxing and romantic rooms.
And if you’ve never stayed at Costabella Tropical Beach Resort and have been wondering what to expect there, then you’ve come to the right place!
Here Are The 8 Reasons WHY You Should Stay at Costabella.
1. Accommodating and Charming Hotel Staff

Everyone was surprised how they welcomed us. Costabella Resort obviously pays very close attention to this very important aspect, as evidently seen in the way every member of their staff accommodates and cares for their customers.

Matching Costabella Resort’s wonderful atmosphere is the establishment’s incredible furniture, naturally. Most would know that Spanish culture revolves around nature… this is the reason why you will find wooden elements and flowers around the area. This helps bring the beauty of nature inside.

And just like the entire hotel, Costabella Resort also brings an air of comfort and relaxation that customers truly appreciate. The entire dining area is pleasantly spacious and boasts of beautiful floral print seats, wooden accents, floor-to-ceiling windows, and ample natural lighting.
