I have stayed at Montebello since my very first visit in 1992 and always enjoyed the clean rooms, the peace and quiet, the beautiful gardens, the friendly and efficient staff. I am always welcomed by name because so many of the employees have been there since my first visit in February 1992. I would seriously consider this hotel to be... More

This Hotel is a great place to escape the noise and pollution of an otherwise very busy city. It has three good pools and nice garden surroundings that add to the tranquility. The buffet breakfast was included in the price of the room and was excellent, adding greatly to the value for money aspect. The staff were very friendly and... More

We wanted somewhere with a reasonable sized garden & pool to escape the crowds of the City and this really hit the spot. It has in fact three pools - a main pool, kids pool adjacent and another quieter pool some way away. It says it is the only garden Hotel in Cebu City and this may well be the... More

The Montebello hotel has a big swimming pool (and 2 kiddy pools) and a nice big garden that shields all the noise and pollution of the city. It's a nice place to relax in Cebu. The internet is not the most reliable. But what really disturbs me is that the hotel intentionally blocks POP, IMAP and Yahoo messenger access which... More

My ferry was cancelled due to a tropical storm. When I went to cancel my booking i found that while the online booking website looked like the hotel's it was that of a booking agency and that my cancellation would cost me one day's accommodation. I will be taking a great deal of care in future and if I should... More

I have stayed at Montebello several times over the past 15 years or so. Thankfully it hasn't changed much in that time. My last two visits were with my wife and children and it was really perfect for us. Cebu city is becoming very busy and congested with traffic, so it's really nice to have somewhere to escape to.

This hotel is just one thing: cheap. And its only cheap if you don't buy anything but the room. Some reviewers have said it has an "old world feel." Only if the old world in question is from the 1970's. It's not in terrible shape, but there's nothing noteworthy about it either. It just looks like it hasn't been renovated... More
