Best Resorts for Singles in Mactan, Cebu

Updated on September 23, 2010

Resorts in Mactan, Cebu

Mactan in Cebu, Philippines is known in history books as the birthplace of Lapu-Lapu, the first known hero in the Philippines. The Mactan Shrine and a number of tourist spots related to the culture of the Cebuanos can be seen there.

As the years passed, Mactan later on became a hub for resorts due to the increasing number of tourists from all over the world. There’s a huge variety of selection of resorts that you can choose from once you decide to go to Mactan. In fact, a number of Hollywood celebrities and performers go there for a much deserved break.

I’ve been to Mactan, Cebu seven times and I was able to visit and even stay in some of their best resorts. Since I am single since birth, one of my criteria in selecting a good resort to stay at is “Is this resort friendly for solo travelers or single ladies like me?”

Here are three of the Best Resorts for Singles in Mactan, Cebu based on my opinion. Comments and suggestions are welcome, too!

Indulge in Plantation Bay Resort and Spa

Plantation Bay Resort and Spa

Plantation Bay Resort and Spa wouldn’t be recognized as one of the 100 best resorts in the world for nothing. It is regularly featured in lifestyle magazines and blogs. I finally had the chance to enter the popular resort last January and I am impressed! Not only is their man-made swimming pools and beaches look natural, but they also do offer a number of activities like kayaking, mountain climbing, swimming, spa, target shooting among others. They also have a number of great restaurants according to your taste and they have presentations at night. It is a perfect place for honeymooners, but it is also a place for single ladies. Now put your hands up!

Relax in Maribago Beach Resort

Maribago Beach Resort

I was invited with a number of bloggers at Maribago Beach Resort last March. We stayed there for two nights and I really did enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and their massage is awesome. If you are a breakfast person, you will surely love their breakfast buffet especially the bacon. It’s so crispy and tasty! You also have a choice to do some activities if you like. When I was there, I simply swam at the pool and tried to write a story at the beachfront. Nice view, inspiring day.

Be Yourself in Be Resorts


Formerly known as Microtel Cebu, Be Resorts just opened last May 2010. I went there last August with a friend and checked the whole place. Be Resorts is way more simplier compared to the first two I mentioned, but Korean travelers love to stay there. The simplicity of the structure makes it more appealing to the kids. The pieces furniture displayed are also colorful and artistic. The room is so chic and girls like me will truly enjoy it. They also offer tours for interested travelers.
