Old hotel and needs an update... Stayed here last Feb 2011, used my United miles. It was ok but definitely won't stay here again. My wife and I were still dating when we stayed here and it was a surprise that Fra Lippo Lippi (band) was having a concert here so we ended up seeing it as well. Not really... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and was disappointed. This hotel gives visitors that "wow" factor because of the facade, but actually staying there is not so great. First, the bathrooms are worn-out. It's hard to "mix" hot and cold. The beds are worn out as well, with some of the sheets having very visible ink stains or what-not. And who... More

Dear badbadz, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your unfortunate experience during your stay with us. We are particularly concerned about your observation of the 4-hour blackout. We do have high-powered generators and they switch on automatically during power interruptions and/or outages. The considerable absence of power was a necessary measure for the annual maintenance of... More

I stayed in the hotel for 3 days during my business trip last year. Before I made a reservation, there are a couple of things that I was considering: close to our office in Cebu, should have a wi-fi in the room to keep me updated in everything, and the price should be reasonable (the free breakfast is a plus)....

Visited the hotel for a conference last week. Good thing it was an overnight visit that was sponsored by the company. Not worth the going rates. Granted this is an old hotel. With all the new hotels popping up, this hotel needs fixing and with the area that it has, what a waste of opportunity. We were assigned a smoking... More

We visited Cebu in time for the Sinulog's closing. We stayed at the Waterfront because my mom is also holding a seminar there. I like the hotel interiors: the ceiling, hotel displays, and lounges. The rooms are nothing out of the ordinary though. The bathrooms are neat but you can tell that they're old. I love the view of the... More

Stayed at the Waterfront hotel in Lahug for a total of 5 days March 2013 with my husband and parents plus a few other friends.

I stayed in this hotel few years ago and was surprised to see the huge lobby has undergone renovation. It looks modern and chic. Unfortunately, the renovation has stopped at the lobby. The rooms are of good size but the furnitures are old and tired. The television is antique. The bathroom is not very clean, the grouting already yellowish. The... More

After 3 weeks travelling the visayas, we decided to be two day earlier on mactan island (airport), to make sure, we catch the plane home and will not get stuck somewhere, if a storm disables the interisland ferry services. To be near the airport we decided the waterfront hotel. The Hotel is very nice after some not so good experiences... More
