The Best Western Sand Bar Resort in Mactan Cebu is a modern 3 star resort in Cordova Mactan. The resort has a restaurant on the ground floor which serves both international and local cuisine. It has 2 swimming pools, one adult and one kid pool as well as a couple of slides. There are function rooms, 3 karaoke rooms, a games room (with an xbox game system), foreign exchange and souvenir shop.
For activities the Best Western Sand Bar has a number of aqua sports including Jet Ski, kayaks, island hopping around Mactan and a tour to Romantic Island (Isla Romantica) a small man-made island just off the coast. There’s not a lot to do there though and it’s pretty barren. They told me some of the structures had been damaged by storms.
All rooms are modern and clean. They come with a welcome drink on arrival. Rooms have mini bar, free Wi-Fi, cable flat screen TV, complementary water, safe, air conditioning and hot and cold showers.
Rooms start from the Deluxe Room which have a balcony overlooking the ocean. The Suite Room is a bit larger with couch and larger balcony. The Premiere Suite has a bathtub in the bathroom.
Baby Cots (limited number) are provided free of charge for infants for guests staying at the resort.

My Review of the Best Western Sand Bar Resort Cebu.
It’s always annoying when you have to go to a resort on Mactan that’s a little out the way and the taxi drivers always complaining they can’t get passengers and want extra payment. Maybe you will be lucky to get one that doesn’t! The resort is located on a part of Mactan that unfortunately isolates it a bit. The one taxi driver had no idea where the resort was soI had to show the taxi driver how to get there! The only thing really around the area is a little Italian restaurant by the name of Swiss Italian Restaurant which is a 5 minute or so tricycle ride away. As in the video I do recommend eating there as the food is good and feels very homely. I liked the food better than at the Best Western. The food at the resort is generally ok, but nothing special. There is also another smaller luxury resort down the road it’s more aimed at the Korean market.
The Sand Bar Resort has some nice modern rooms and generally everything is ok about the place, but it just doesn’t stand out as a fantastic resort. The beach is mediocre, the pool is fine, the staff were reasonable enough. Everything about it is pretty much average. While there is nothing particularity wrong with the resort it just doesn’t stand out from the pack. I give it a rating of AVERAGE.
