We always have that feels of longing for beaches. Summer or not, daytime or nighttime. Picture taken above is a weekend gateway at Karancho Beach Resort in Mactan with my cousin who just celebrated her birthday that week. Which also her kind of last summer outing before official class starts. Lucky her, she have the most supportive cousin ever.  Hmm.

Bring up Mactan, Cebu, I would say that there are plenty of beach resorts to choose from. Whether your in tight budget or a go for fancy resort, for a company event, friends/family outing, you name it.
Karancho Beach Resort is located in Maribago, Mactan Island, Cebu, B. Tumulak St.
Where you can travel 30 minutes from Mactan airport and likely an hour or 2 from Cebu City.

 We stayed from afternoon until the late evening so we got a chance to watch this very fascinating view. Karancho is just a neighbor of those known big resorts.

The resort operates 24/7 on 2 shifts. Am shift (6AM-6PM) & PM shift (6PM-6AM). Cut-off times are stritcly implemented. DAY/NIGHT rates will be charged to OVERSTAYING guest.
  • Entrance fee is separate from cottage rental fee
  • All electrical equipment (tv,karaoke,player,speakers) have corresponding charges.
  • Groups larger than 30 persons should coordinate with management for "coupon-policy" implementation.
  • Management is NOT liable for any loss,damage,or accident occured within the premises. The resort will do its best to give assistance during these emergencies.
  • Upon cancellation of reservation (15% deduction) from your down payment.
  • Extra charge for all alcoholic beverages. Please ask corkage policy.
  • Karancho practices proper waste disposal. Please segregate trash (BIO/NONB IO).

One lesson I learned from this trip is to do accurate research beforehand. We unintentionally going for Karancho yet we landed there. I mean its not in our options either. It just happened that the resort we planned to go is closed and disfigured to a new establishment 2 years ago. Disappointment suddenly hit me because we need to change plans. Soon to realized the blog I read for reference is dated last year 2012.    

It's never been a bad stay tho.
