we had the Spa-Villa. Very spacious and nicely furniture. Terrace has nice view over pool and onto the ocean. It's very quiet. Cabanas at the pool are great and give a lot of privacy. Spa treatments are absolutely fantastic, we had the most relaxing massages. Food at the restaurant is out-of-this-world fantastic ! Wine selection is also very good. But...

Best place to stay in Cebu. Service is amongst the best I've experienced anywhere. Abaca is not inexpensive but one won't be disappointed staying here. This was our third time staying at Abaca and once again it was fantastic. The attention to detail is better than at any Four Seasons or any Aman in my opinion.

The rooms are spacious with beautiful Design, Bathroom is huge and the bathtub with views to the sea. The Restaurant is one of the best I've been at the Philippines. Staff is very polite and always helpful, you even get your own Butler ! The have only 6 Suites and 2 Villa, so it's very private. Relaxing at the Infinitypool...

Everything about Abaca is superb. The service was fantastic and our spacious room had a beautiful view. Enjoyed the homemade biscuits that was placed in our room - a lovely finishing touch. We loved every delicious meal that we had at the Abaca restaurant.

There is a reason why this hotel is number one on the island. Right from when they pick you up at the airport, given a fresh cold towel and cold water you know you are in for a great stay. Everyone at the hotel is friendly and all know you name! I had a treatment at the spa sand whilst...

My husband and I stayed here for just one night on honeymoon, as we were stopping over from Malapascua before heading to Palawan the next day. Our only regret was that we had to leave so soon. Everything was perfect. It's perfect for a romantic night away or stay for honeymoon. We spent the 24 hours just in the resort...

This is a boutique resort with only 9 rooms, so expect an intimate and relaxing getaway. The cabanas are perfect for lounging by the infinity pool, which by the way was the perfect temperature! We were in "Sayop 6", the penthouse room with an ocean view and it was absolutely lovely! Service is EXCEPTIONAL!

After visiting many countries in the world and staying at many 5 star resorts, Abaca is really one of a kind. The integrity and total privacy is amazing. With first class customer service, they pampered me an my family in a way we never had expected. The staff of the Abaca are very very friendly, alert, warm and generous in...

I have a very high pressure job and my wife and I were in need of some real relaxation. Abaca provided this perfectly. We saw it first on TripAdvisor and the recommendations were glowing so decided to book a room for a week. Fortunately for us the suites were fully booked and Abaca generously upgraded us to the best villa...
