Though this hotel does not have a beach, it is truly first class. I stay on the Ambassador Floor (the 18th floor), and the service is outstanding! If you shop the rate, you can stay on the Ambassador floor for the same price as below, but you get a butler service, use of tyhe business center on the top floor,... More

I enjoyed eating in Uno, service is great! I learned from the staff that the hotel is renovating their rooms soon! I can't wait... More

Waterfront Hotel in Cebu is overrated. The nice things about this hotel are the casino, lobby, good restaurant selections, and most of the staff. But they should really focus on maintaining the rooms. The rooms were very disappointing. We had to switch rooms twice because the first room has stains in the bathroom (major stains). We were transferred to a... More

I just came from the US for a vacation and stayed in Waterfront hotel for a few days. While waiting for a friend, I sat in the lobby to get a few drinks. I noticed that I was ignored by the lobby waitresses, while they immediately tend to any customer or guest who are either slant eyed looking or foreigners.... More
