I arrived at this hotel on October 24th from Manila about 10:30 p.m., looking forward to a nice shower and rest. The interior of the room looked good enough, but the shower didn't drain. I was up to my ankles in dirty water. Not pleasant in the least. I immediately contacted the front desk, and they sent a guy with... More

My Wife and I always stay at this hotel when visiting Cebu. My Wife stayed here on her own the last time and was asked where I was, that it the kind of place it is. It's very a relaxed, non chain hotel with a nice atmosphere. The hotel has beautiful gardens and pool and the building is Spanish in... More

A somewhat older hotel, which always appears to be very busy, and is well patronised by the ex pat community who regard it as a home from home. Welcoming and friendly staff who are always prepared to go the 'extra mile' to satisfy their visitors, a pleasant semi open air restaurant leading on to the main swimming pool offers a... More

A spacious garden surrounds this hotel in the city centre, which makes for quite an escape. Of course, the hotel is big and busy - two weddings on the Saturday I was there. I had a room in the refurbished wing which was a good size. My only complaint - no in-room safe. Two swimming pools. Usual friendly staff. Breakfast... More

Helped arrange trips etc and gave good estimates of time to sites so we had workable itinerary. Reasonably priced resto bordering on cheap with very good grilled dishes.

A very good location for that little hotel. It is easy to go anywhere in the city from there and the front desk is always very efficient in riding you a taxi quickly if you need to. The swimming pool area and all the green space makes it a big plus if you travel with children. The staff is always... More
