We loved it here 3 nights were not enough. This is how a hotel should be run. It was full with a conference. Everywhere ran smoothly. Breakfasts were the best in the Philippines no waiting in queues. The foyer was full of people the casino was empty. Such an interesting place we booked sight seeing from a travel agent on... More

As more hotels open in Cebu, many 5 star establishments, it amazes me how Waterfront still feels as it is the most opulent of all. The grand design that is striking in the Cebu skyline, its detailed and most impressive lobby. Fair enough the rooms seem to be dated and if i may, too average for the price tag its... More

I was travelling alone to Cebu to meet my GF and we both spent one night in this hotel. She booked this hotel through phone and we got an upgrade when she booked. My GF knew one who worked there so thats why probably. I think we checked in at about 2 PM on a Thursday. The hotel room was... More

We stayed for five nights with family members. It was our wedding at another Cebu city location and staying here was convenient for us in every way. We had deluxe rooms. Spacious and comfortable. Good restaurants at the hotel, an easy taxi ride to malls and other city restaurants and the hotel buffet breakfast is fabulous. Courteous and competent staff.... More

I stayed at this hotel as recommended to by another establishment during Sinulog weekend 2011 with my sisters. It took 3 hours for this hotel to fix our room as to what we requested and paid for, ie an extra 'proper bed' and ensure all items toiletries, cutlery, complimentary items etc were present in the room. We checked in 5.30pm,... More

I booked a superior double room and stayed for 4 nights. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was more than adequate. Free wifi and breakfast was offered with the booking. The breakfast was amazing, you will surely find something that suits your taste. Front desk service was excellent: friendly, uncomplicated, and helpful. We were only... More

I could not fault this hotel. The room was 100% clean and the general servioce throughout the hotel was excellent. I was greeted by beautiful smiles from all staff whether they be on the doors, behind a reception desk or even cleaning the floors in the lobby. Whenever I required assistance it was provided professionally and in a most pleasant... More

had to cancel trip. but they booked me twice. so they cancelled one reservation but not the other. so guess what? they charged me full amount for not showing. When I asked for refund they said ok, but it will take up to 60 days. Shady business practice. Suggest you stay elsewhere. Reporting to credit card company now.

We stay here every year (for the past 7 years). The noticeable changes are that there simply hasn't been many changes. Unfortunately, this is the problem. Some rooms were recently renovated which is most welcome but on the whole, this hotel is showing it's age. Here's the pros: The Waterfront is a landmark in Cebu and at night is beautifully... More

Staff were all friendly & helpful. A great choice of restaurants although a bit pricey. The breakfast buffet is excellent. It caters for all nationality's. You never have to wait more than a couple of minutes for a taxi & the shuttle service into the main Shopping Malls was always on time. I cannot fault this charming & relaxing hotel... More
