We had an excellent stay here. Hotel was super clean (people were cleaning all the time), rooms were complete, food was very delicious, a lot of things to do in the hotel (swimming pools, gym, playroom, spa,..) and above all very very kind and helpful staff. Always with a big smile on their faces and they made us feel at home. When we come back to Cebu we will stay here again for shure!!! Thank you reef mactan resort, we will miss you in Belgium xxx

It’s was a memorable anniversary staycation with my family hotel receptionist Are so friendly they even upgrade us to bigger room and provide my infant a crib. The room is big enough, pool and beach is very clean. The kitchen restaurant food is good not much choices kitchen staffs are friendly and helpful although we felt discriminated by the supervisor. It’s so disappointing how we were trying to clean up our table after eating since it’s our habit but he approached us in a bad joke, so unprofessional. Well anyway it didn’t stop us to enjoy our stay we just hope that they will be nicer and have proper training.

Hidden best resort. Liked how they used waterproof wristbands as keys to the room and elevator. Nice pool and easy access to the beach. Also had enough beach activities. They also have good comfy beds. Breakfast was decent. I'm be visiting again soon.

My family and I had an overnight stay at The Reef last mid-February. Not only is the place aesthetically classy but the service was very satisfactory. We had a late lunch at The Bakery and one of the waiters, his name is Kyle is very efficient and has such a friendly demeanor. He gave us great service while catering to us. Five stars to you Kyle! I’ve been recommending The Reef to my friends.

Traveling with kids can be a challenge but staying at The Reef made our weekend getaway fun, relaxing and memorable. Excellent and quality food at the kitchen, big servings, perfect for our family. They have 3 pools and the kiddie pool is just the perfect size. I love the idea that it’s right in front the lifeguards’ hut, it gives me the guarantee of safety. The kids club is packed with activities, though some are with little cost, like the bracelet making and shirt dyeing, it’s good coz the kids get to bring these as souvenirs. My 8yo son had so much fun at their arcade. It has 2 pool tables, air hockey, basketball ring and ps5. I personally love the beach. I can just stay there all afternoon and enjoy the sea breeze. The beach area gets shaded at around four in the afternoon. You can also jog around the boardwalk. The rooms are really spacious and I love the lighting. We had a seaview and the little balcony is just enough to sit on while having a cup of espresso (it comes free in all rooms!) Our stay was made extra special by the very friendly and helpful staff. Their people makes the hotel exemplary. Too bad we didn’t have time to try the spa, but this just gave us a reason to come back! If you’re looking for a new hotel to stay in Mactan, you should try The Reef! :)

Very friendly staff, from receptionist to hotel manager. Everyone was helpful, courteous, etc. The food in the restaurant “the kitchen” was simply delicious and of really good quality. The tours the hotel offers are worthwhile to do. A gentlemen called “Marky” gave us super valuable tips. Kawasan waterfall is a must. All in all a great experience staying three days in “The Reef”!!! We will definitely come back.

I highly rate The reef island and resort mactan. Had the most amazing time. Smooth check in and room was ready before 3pm. Room was big and clean. Everyone was so nice and helpful and made you feel so at home, even though the place is big, many things to do. The pools was so nice and the beach was beautiful. The view was AMAZING. If you’re looking for a relaxing place I recommend the reef. The only thing I would change is maybe offer more food options and lower the prices a lil. The price is definitely in the high western side. They do have a really nice cafe with great coffee and pastry. From my family and I, thank you to everyone for making our stay enjoyable. See you again soon
