Looking for the best resort in Cebu? 

Luckily for you, some of the best beaches in the Philippines can be found on Mactan Island. If there’s anything that they all have in common, it’s the amazing island experience that we all look for when we go to the beach.

Whether you’re looking to spend a weekend getaway or summer vacation, one particular destination that will give you the complete beach resort experience is none other than Tambuli Seaside Resort and Spa!

This seaside resort is an excellent place to spend your summer vacation.

First off, did you know that Tambuli has been a staple vacation spot in Mactan for years? Aside from its well-maintained beach, it also has several large swimming pools that are perfect for any kind of gathering. 

The resort received an excellent score of 8.4 on Agoda and 8 on Reviews on both websites raved about the resort’s housekeeping, room amenities, and polite staff. 


You’ll love the expansive beachfront, which aside from casual swimming is perfect for water sports like kayaking and jet skiing. 

Resort staff will provide life jackets before you take part in any of those activities, and towels will be distributed near the beach for your convenience.

Part of the beachfront is a designated area overlooking the sea that is spacious enough for social events and parties. Instead of tents, there are trees all around to make it more comfortable to hang out during the day.

Tanning chairs are also available if you want to sit back and relax while facing the sea or waiting for the sunset.

The resort has some of the biggest swimming pools in Lapu-Lapu City.


Upon entering the resort, the first thing you will notice are the swimming pools, as they highlight just how big the resort is.

Trees and plants are everywhere, which helps a lot if you want to swim in a pool that has shade.

Most of the pools are around 4 feet deep, which is generally safe for adults, while the kiddie pools are around 2 to 3 feet deep. Lifeguards keep watch throughout the day to ensure the safety of the guests.

If you don’t fancy a swim, you can lounge by the pool and bask in the sunlight. Read a book, chat with friends, or have yourself a cocktail!

Which brings us to one of the resort’s main highlights – the poolside bar. 

Going by the name Bar Montan, they offer a variety of beverages like cocktails, mocktails, juices, and soft drinks. Happy Hour also starts relatively early in the afternoon.


The studio-type rooms are fully equipped with essential items to complement your stay, all of them with memory foam beds and a private balcony. 

There are three restaurants on-site, namely Cafe Hojas, Pugon, and Caverna. All three only offer a la carte meals, specializing in various cuisines. Cafe Hojas focuses on local cuisine, Pugon is the resort’s pizza parlor, while Caverna offers Mediterranean dishes. 

With its excellent outdoor setting, friendly accommodation, and overall quality service, there’s no question about Tambuli being a top choice for a weekend or summer getaway on Mactan Island.
