Video guide to Alegre Beach Resort

 

Alegre Beach Resort is a luxury 4 star resort in northern Cebu. The resort comprises of seven hectares of lush tropical gardens and lovely private beach front. The beach here is quite good especially in the summer months when the waters are smooth and calm. Alegre Resort is located in the north of Cebu around 2 hours’ drive from Cebu City so it is a fair distance. If you take a taxi from Cebu City expect to pay around 2000 PHP.  If you want to travel cheaper I have shown on the video on how to take a bus there.  You can also organise pick up with the resort direct.

The resort features 21 upmarket cottages (built with elegant wood furniture and marble bathrooms). The Deluxe Rooms (60 sqm) have large bathrooms and bedrooms with king or 2 double sized beds and have an outside terrace. The Deluxe Ocean View Rooms have the same features but with an ocean view and the Deluxe Ocean View with garden have a grassed area as well.  The cottages are located on the far side of the resort so it is a bit of walk to say get to the restaurant or reception area.

The Aqua Shop offers diving (PADI – all levels), snorkelling, fish feeding, reef walking. You can a organise some wonderful Island hopping trips from the resort to a couple of nearby islands (see video) and as I suggested the island tour to Kalanggman Island is the nicer of the two. Capitancillo Islet is the other island tour they offer. Prices are in the video and were valid as of March 2014. The tours were pricey as expected from a resort like this.

Other facilities at Alegre Resort include a games rooms (which includes a small gym), spa, a nice looking swimming pool, small gift shop, tennis court and business centre. The restaurant has an area that has some nice views overlooking the ocean.

The staff told me the resort was damaged by the recent Typhoon Yolanda in 2013 and was closed for repair for nearly 2 months. As I said in the video I couldn’t even notice any damage.

Alegre Resort would make for a perfect stay for couples as its just such a pretty location and with 21 rooms you really are not going to have that many people staying at any one time.

 

My Review of Alegre Beach Resort Cebu

If you are looking for a wonderful exclusive resort in the north of Cebu, in terms of an upmarket resort then Alegre Beach Resort Cebu is probably the best you are going to find on the mainland of Cebu. The beach area is just a wonderful place to laze by and if you watch the video you can see how amazing the colours of the water look. I first stayed here a number of years ago, and the only major difference is the renovated restaurant area. It now looks a lot more contemporary looking. The selections of food is a little on the small side but the quality fairly good. The buffets were nice but again a smaller selection (if you compare to some of the upmarket resorts in Mactan Island) of dishes.  As I said in the video my biggest issue with the resort (although it’s not a huge one) is the rooms do look tired and dated. I did find the rooms of a good size including the bathroom. Beds nice and comfy, I just expected a little more considering it’s a 4 star resort.  The staff are super good friendly and helpful.
Overall I wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending Alegre Beach Resort as I love the location as it is an exclusive resort here, away from everything. There is nothing within walking distance of the resort so you will need to do everything at the resort.

I give the resort at rating of Above Average.

Update: The DOT Central Visayas on the 14 October 2014 issued this statement:
We would like to inform everyone that Alegre Beach Resort and Spa has temporarily suspended their operations. This is to allow them to complete and evaluate the studies that are being made to assess the viability of the renovation, re-creation and rebranding of the resort.

We will inform you as soon as the establishment will resume its operations.

For everyone’s guidance and kind information
