The Rancho Cancio Getaway Experience

To be honest with you, the city life is not that bad, but of course, we sometimes need to get rid of the hustle bustle of the busy streets, hectic work schedules, and traffic. Here in Cebu City, we just found a new place to spend a closer encounter with nature and to enjoy a relaxing feel-at-home scenery away from home. This is my experience with Rancho Cancio.

The perfect getaway at Rancho Cancio

Rancho Cancio is a private rest house located at the mountainous barangay of Adlaon, Cebu City. It is kilometers away from Ayala Heights in Busay and it’s quite far as it took us around an hour and a half to travel. My colleagues from work and I met at Cebu IT Park and we rented a jeepney to go there.

The travel makes you wait and wait and really wait until you will arrive at a wonderful place, a Japanese, Zen- inspired house in white and black, and dark chocolate frames, surrounded with glass windows and the green marks of nature.

The wait from the traveling is worth it.

When you arrive there, you will be greeted by the house staff. Also, this little fellow will welcome you warmly to his humble home in the mountain view of Adlaon. I would like you to meet, Snoopy.

Not only that, the water of the infinity pool will really attract and attempt you to jump right away and touch the tip of the pool and watch over the view of the greenest mountains of Adlaon, which is 33 kilometers away from the main city Cebu.

Rancho Cancio is a private-owned, exclusive getaway place for the family and friends, an ideal place for parties, team building, and vacation destination. One of the house helpers informed us that there will be an upcoming wedding reception, which I believe is a good pick to spend time with the newly wedded couple and their families.

They serve breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. You can also avail their buffet services or you can bring you own food with additional charges. Servings are international and fusion cuisine from Mexican, and Italian. They also offer Filipino dishes. They even serve home-made cookies like cinnamon and oatmeal for dessert which I really love.

Right after you have lunch or dinner, you can walk around the place and enjoy the view of the mountains in Adlaon so green they are like paintings in the living room. You can also feel the touch of the soft breeze to get rid of your stress (but it’s so cold at night the pool will be covered with fog that when you breathe it feels like it’s snowing. It usually happen around midnight so don’t forget to bring your jackets and long pants).

Rooms are available in family size or huge groups of 20’s. Since I went there for a team building, we took the room with many double-decked beds like the army bunkers.

We paid ₱650.00 per head for the accommodation. Food is around ₱250 per set (breakfast, lunch or dinner) and the management can give you their menu of many choices.

    So me and 2 of my friends decided to celebrate our birthday with 16 other people at Rancho Cancio which is located in Adlaon, Cebu City. We started the afternoon with a cozy dip in the pool. The place was amazing, the scenery and the house itself is so pretty so everyone took turns in taking pictures and posted them online. It was a long night and we’ve had so much fun. We decided to pay for corkage kay lagi mag luto mi. Services offered were the dorm beds for Php 700, Breakfast meal for Php 180 and the corkage of Php 150. Supposedly we were to pay for our lunch which is for Php 280. The next day we had our breakfast served and we were surprised to see na gamay kaayo ang gi serve (as seen on the picture below) so we asked the caretakers nganong gamay ra wherein we paid good for 19. So mao to sige silag explain na “mao ra na ang gi supply sa owner, 1.4 kilos” so we asked okay ra mag pa dugang ug luto. The caretaker didn’t say yes or no so na balaka mi kay 18 mi kabuok and naay di makakaon namo (to think na we should’ve had extra since one of our friends decided to go home early even after paying for overnight) so we asked if we can talk to the owner the ate said “di to paistorbo kay gisapot to gahapon, saputon to” nag lagot ko so I asked them to explain the details of the booking mao to sigeg pakita si ate sa receipt. The caretaker then admitted that they also think na kuwang ang food and that maskin sila mauwaw mu serve sa ilang guests. We had to ration the food just so masigo siya sa amo tanan. They eventually decided to provide extra rice with no charge but we still demanded to complain sa tag iya kay lagi basin mao nasad mahitabo inig lunch. Ang caretakers gi chika chika ra mi so I decided to send an email sa owner to inquire.
    At around 8AM the owner (female) called my friend who is our contact. She was so furious about the “threatening email” I composed. She then refused to talk to me and just wants to speak to Nigel who is our contact so they spoke for a while. Maldita kaayo siya bes she wont accept feedback from her customers balik balik siya “unsa diay inyo gi expect eat all you can?” The convo ended when she decided to drop by and discuss things over saying “if di ta magkasinabot mag issue mig full refund then manguli mo” we agreed. We faced her hoping to reason out why we were aggravated with the situation. We tried to explain na we were expecting “enough” food for 19 people instead we got less but she kept on insisting that our issue is the “rice” so nag balik balik sad kog pasabot niya na we just wanted to have enough food for 19 people. She stopped the conversation, her verbatim was “I don’t want us to discuss more about this, your lunch will be the same” so my friend asked “so you’ll just leave your customers unsatisfied?” She just responded “because you’re being rude” she started saying na my email was threatening her na we will post in facebook and all (see picture for the email body) the issue was settled with them issuing us prorated refund because we’re not gonna have lunch nalang. They recalculated the charges and to our surprise naay mga discrepancy. The KTV price the caretakers said was for Php 1,200 which turned out to be Php 800 ra diay. The Zipline price they told us was for Php 50 nya Php 100 ang naa sa recibo. On top of all this the owner treated us with such disrespect over talking us and not letting us explain. She was so rude and was not accepting our side and that “call center” employees should know how to check the FAQs and should check all details etc. She kept on saying “we were the first” to complain with their over 1000 bookings for the past 5 years. My friend just posted a negative review and just a couple minutes later her review was deleted this is why I decided to post this on my wall. This was supposed to be a special day for me and my friends its so sad that it turned out like this.

    wow deleting comments… good job Cebu Finest!!!!

    • Hi @elkaanjulidayon:disqus,

      Good day. Did you include a link on your comment? Our system discourages comments with links to avoid being spammed. I am not sure but this system might have automatically deleted the comment with the link or someone reported it. If you have a complain with Rancho Cancio, I would suggest that you directly contact their management since we are not connected with them.

      As much as we would like to cater our readers’ sentiments, I may suggest that you send it directly to them, not here. I hope you understand.

      Thank you.
