Red Parrot

Say hello to the red parrot who greets you at the entrance of Mountain View. He looks lonely though and I think he wants a bigger cage.

Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh is also here!

Rope Course Adventure

For people who wants adventure, Mountain View offers its Rope Course Challenge. When compared to Papa Kit’s Cadlum’s Jungle, Mountain View’s rope course adventure is scarier and more exciting due to the fact that the park is located on the hillside of Mount Busay. Being on the hillside makes you feel that you’re on a higher place and that it’s really scary to fall.

The 420 Steps to the Rope Course Adventure

The 420 Steps to the Rope Course Adventure. It’s not that tiring to climb 420 steps but be careful if you have a phobia in heights like me.

Christmas Park and Millennium Cross

When I first entered this section, I thought “Oh, they forgot to remove the Christmas decors!” But when I saw the “Christmas Park” sign, I realized that it’s just Christmas in the area throughout the year. Among all the areas in Mountain View, this is the most colorful because of the brightly colored flowers and many of those remind me of my childhood in our province.

In this area, there’s also a coffee shop and lots of free tables where you can eat while enjoying the view of Cebu City from the top.

The Central Park

The central park has function halls for programs and business retreats. Of course, videoke machines are also available since Filipinos really love singing.  The only drawback of the videoke machines is you might get disturbed by the noise if you’re renting a room near the central park.

Rooms under pine trees

Just some of my favorite rooms in Mountain View. It’s really relaxing to stay in a room under pine trees.

Water Park and Children’s Playground

If you have kids, this is the place for them to enjoy. They also have a pool here for people who want to swim. I wish I had brought a swimming attire because I didn’t know that their swimming pool is attractive.

Overall, the experience at Mountain View is great. The place is clean and there are lots to do and to see in the park. The wind there is also fresh and really cool. It’s also ideal to spend the New Year there since it’s one of the highest points in Cebu allowing you to get a good view of the fire works.

    Do you have a transportation service that picks up guests at the Pier? do you have a food corner that serves individual meals like breakfast lunch and dinner for a family of 6?? please update your contact numbers. lahat sila out of coverage.

    • Author says:

      They have a transportation service. Please check the price list that I’ve posted above. They have food corners but I’m not sure if they serve individual meals. Sorry, I just took the numbers from the brochure they’ve given me.

  6. joseph says:

    how much would be the entrance if its not a member?

  7. kesay says:

    Wala na po bang ibang number? Di po talaga sila ng rereply. :/
    Mgpapa reserve po ksi sana ako ng room para sa outing nming mg babarkada. May cut off time po ba yung pgrirent ng room nila??

    • Author says:

      Sorry but those are the only numbers that I have. Those are from their Google plus page and the brochure they’ve given me. I’ll try to get a number when I get the chance to visit the place again.

  8. Jane says:

    If we bring food, is it subjected to corkage?

  9. Gemma Lhen says:

    I’ve visited this place many times and it still excites me to be there! What are some other activities there besides zipline and rope courses by the way?

    • Author says:

      Right now they only have rope course and zipline. But they were constructing something so I think there’ll be more activities in the future! I agree that it’s really exciting to visit the place again and again – fresh air, nice view and lots of activities to do!

  10. kesay says:

    pero wala po silang cut-off time po para sa pag rirent ng room? I mean, makaka avail kami anytime ng room dun?

    • Author says:

      I’m not sure if they have cut-off time but I think you can rent anytime as long as there’s a vacant room. To be sure, just rent a room in the morning or early in the afternoon.

  11. cindy sultan says:

    does they have a time limit there?

    • Author says:

      Some of the activities are open for only a certain time. The rope course adventure is open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM while the water park also closes at 6:00 PM. But once, you have paid for the entrance fee, you can stay at the place from morning till night.

  12. nick says:

    is there any inclusion if you will rent a room?

  13. frances says:

    ahm if kung mangaligo mi didtu sa pool sa mountain view ba pila diay ang cottage? or naa ra slay free tables?

      Hi Frances. I’m not so sure about this but I think there’s a rental fee for the cottages in the pool area…

  14. riyan says:

    hi, what time is the pool open for swimming? do they have night swimming? do we need reservations to rent their rooms? thanks!

    • Author says:

      Hi Riyan… The pool is open from around 8AM – 6PM. Unfortunately, they don’t have night swimming… They also accept walk-in guests…

  15. Dayan says:

  16. jingle planta says:

    hello!!! pag mag check in po kami sa room ano po ba ang mga free na facilities????

    • Author says:

      Hi Jingle. Sorry but I haven’t really tried staying in one of their rooms. But I know that their rooms are air-conditioned and with private bathrooms.

  17. shrime says:

    hi i just want to ask isn’t adult and kids swimming pool are separate and how many feet for the kids and also for the adult?

    • Author says:

      There’s only one pool. I think there are parts that are deeper. But based on what I’ve seen, the pool really looks like a kiddie pool.

  18. shrime says:

    are really swimming pool are only open till 6pm only is there no open for extension like having night swimming?

    • Author says:

      I’ve heard from one of the care takers there that once you get inside before 6PM, you can swim there until 8PM. But that’s it, no more extensions.

  19. Denise says:

    Hi! nganu d i dili ma contact inyo phone numbers nga gi post?

  20. moni says:

  21. cristine baring says:

    • Author says:

      Yes, it’s okay if you don’t rent a room and just use the free tables. You just need to pay for the entrance fee. But I’m not sure if they let people to stay there overnight without renting a room.

  22. cristine baring says:

    • Author says:

      Hi Cristine. I’m not sure about this but I think you’ll need to pay for the cottages in the pool area. There are lots of free tables but they’re outside the pool area.

  23. lovely billones says:

  24. mary says:

  25. gina says:

    Hi,

    I would like to ask if we can hold a party there, if there is a good space for about 50-70 people and if they allow a catering service to supply food for our guests. Thanks.

    • Author says:

      They have function halls that can accommodate around 50 – 70 people. I’m not sure though if they allow food catering service.

  26. Selena says:

    hi miss, pwede mag rent ng room nya di man overnyt like 6pm lng out?

    • Author says:

      Hi Selena. I’m not really sure if they allow rental for day use. But I think you can negotiate with them if there are lots vacant rooms. :)

  27. Joy says:

    What is the best tour itinerary when we go there, especially that the place is big and I want to maximize the time spent there? I am planning to have swimming in morning for the kids and then lunch and start tour around maybe 2pm up to say 6pm? I haven’t been there…

    • Author says:

      Hi Joy. That sounds perfect. The place is quite big but you’ll be able to tour it and try the activities in one day. I was able to tour the whole place in one afternoon. But since you’ll go swimming, I suggest that it’s better if you arrive there at 9AM in the morning. :)

  28. Farrell says:

    Hi miss Author you did a really good job for posting this pics and prices here. Now i know were to spend my honeymoon after my merrage..
    Thanks….. :-)

  29. Shang says:

    Miss, I just wanna ask if we stay there until 5 A.M, is there any additional fee, even we ever bring our own tent?

    • Author says:

      Hi Shang. There’s no additional payment even if you stay until 5 AM. But I’m not sure if they allow guests to bring tents.

      • Shang says:

        Thankyou so much Miss Author. We are planning to go there this sat and we are confused. Are we allow to stay til 5 AM without getting any room? Like, just to stay in their free benches or table.

        • Author says:

          I’m not sure if this rule still applies until today but the last time I went there, we were able to stay til early morning without renting a room.

  30. yayang says:

    ask ko ang po if pwede magpareserve ng room?

      Hi Yayang. Sorry but we’re not connected with Mountain View. You can try contacting them through the numbers provided.

  31. Mica says:

    HI, I was wondering if you have any pics of the rooms?

    • Author says:

      Hi Mica. I didn’t get the chance to take photos of their rooms. But some of their rooms have hot & cold showers, televisions, air conditioners and terrace with sunset view. ;)

  32. korina says:

    Kana sa ilang Swimming Pool 1st Flor 15 pax for 1,000
    By 15 pax 15 person max na? Nya kana 1,000 per hour na nga charge?

    • Author says:

      Hi Ken. 1000 pesos is the rental from 8AM to 12 midnight. There will be an additional of 10% of the daily rate per hour after 12 midnight. I’m not sure if 15 is really the maximum. Maybe you can try negotiating with the resort.

  38. Mar Julie says:

    good day:) my friends and i will be having a reunion and this place is a perfect place to bond with my classmates..we are more or less 150. how much is the rate of the place we can rent? and if we wish to go overnight? where would we possibly stay? and please give the details of the price. thank you :))
