Decided for a quick tropical getaway and thought of the perfect place to be ~Be Resorts, located in Punta Engano, Mactan in the beautiful island of Cebu.
Me and my boyfriend traveled to Cebu last July 19, 2013 for some midyear vacay. From the airport, we rode a taxi going to Be Resort. It could cost you around 120-150 Php. If you are on a tight budget, you may opt to ride the shuttle from the airport to Marina Mall, and then ride the jeepney with the sign Punta Engano.
There are a lot of well-known resorts in the neighborhood of BE. Some are Moevenpick, Shangrila, Portofino, etc. But what makes BE unique is that it's rightly priced with its stylish design and very accomodating staff.
We availed of their day tour for only 750 Php which is inclusive of:
~ Entrance fee
~Free use of all Swimming Pools and Beach
~Free use of towels
~ Rice Bowl for Lunch
~ choice of Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice or Iced Tea
-Unlimited Wifi Access

If you wish to go overnight, room rates start around 5,000Php. This includes Buffet Breakfast, Swimming, and you get to enjoy Parasailing, Island Hopping, Scuba Diving, Snorkelling, Jet Skiing and a whole lot more.
When we got here, there are a lot of Korean Tourists. You'd probably think you're not in the Philippines. :)
What I liked most about this resort is that the staff make you feel like a millionaire from the way they treat you. They treat all guests equally,no biases for foreign tourists whatsoever. Even the gardener is so courteous. And the waiter named Sam accommodated us very well.
The only thing I kind of disliked was that there were some flies. But not really a big problem, the place is too beautiful to focus on those creatures.

Got Pineapple and Orange Juice to add to the tropical feel.
