There's plenty to enjoy in Maribago Bluewater Resort. The beach has fine white sand and the cove-like formation owing to the nearby Alegrado Island gives the place an "exclusive" feel. It's relatively more expensive than say, Cebu Beach Club, but cheaper than Crimson Resort or Moevenpick Resort, all operating in Mactan. In fact, the resort, according to our boat lady doesn't really have a low season. Taiwanese and Koreans continuously pour into their shores.
We're reprinting what we've written from our previous post, so here goes. The resort is divided in 4 areas: the Garden Wing where the restaurant and the pool are; the Amuma Spa Wing which has its own pool (and which you might not see if you' re not into resort massages and spa treatments); the Beach Wing, and, finally, Alegrado Island, a sand bar/island situated right across the beach front, accessible by wading through the lagoon.
