This May 2015 will be the 3rd time wife and I have stayed at Montebello Garden Resort (2-3 weeks each time). We like it because it is a block away from Gaisano Mall. Breakfast comes with room (Buffett, all you can eat). Nice swimming Pool with outdoor eating area. Large room for $70 per night. Nice Country setting.

Cebu City is dusty and polluted, no way to go for a walk unless inside a noisy and crowded mall. This hotel is an oasis in the middle of the disaster: you can relax in the garden, in the room, in the swimming pool, in the lobby. And the rates are good, not too expensive and good money for the...

My partner and I spent 3 nights here and found this hotel an oasis of peace and calm after the frantic pace of Cebu City! The pool area is wonderful for relaxing, drinks are very reasonable price, we spend a whole day just chilling out by the pool. The service provided by all the staff was outstanding, nothing was too... More

We used this hotel for a month in January and were very impressed. Very good staff, clean 25m pool (2 other small ones) for exercise. Surrounded by a beautiful garden with pond, bridge and you can pay the hotel $2 for a pole and bread and have the kids go fishing. The food is good, not great, but reasonable at... More

This is a awsome hotel, please disregard the reviews clearly written by people who are demanding or rude, grumpy ect.....seriously you want a Beverly hills hotel then go to Beverly hills and pay for one. At this hotel the staff are excellent, the pool and bar area are superb and rooms more than enough for the price you will pay.... More

Very good location. In the centre but nice and quiet. Restaurant a bit pricy but the food is good. Beautiful pool area with a restaurant. Thera no spa in the hotel but there's one very close to it ( 10 mins drive ) called holiday spa. Friendly staff.

We have stayed in this hotel many times and always for the same reasons - It is well located for Cebu City / the staff are really nice / there is a nice pool with gardens / overall it is a very relaxing place to stay and somewhere you will feel at home. Thankfully these factors have not changed. The... More

A great hotel to stay if you are looking for a relaxing, serene place and within the city. Hotel and restaurant staffs were so friendly. Services like our welcome drinks, breakfast, swimming pool, cable TV and WIFI in our room were offered for free on this hotel. Me and my wife just enjoyed our time while having our breakfast which...
