The hotel is an excellent choice when you go to Cebu for a business trip Because it is situated above the city, yet not too far from its center. It would have been a nice place to go back to after a hectic day. Unfortunately, the rooms above mine were undergoing renovation. I could hear pounding and dragging sounds from... More

The trip I was on was for business in Balamban on the west side of the island so this hotel was perfect. It is located about 10 minutes out of the city (or 45 minutes in rush hour) directly on the road across the mountains to Balamban, so for me it was perfect as it kept me out of the... More

Private location - unlike most hotels, Marco Polo is situated far away from the main roads, which is good for travelers who wish to be far from the noise from the roads - the private location with a narrow entrance also allowed security to be under good control - shuttle buses are provided frequently to the major malls Gorgeous view...

The hotel is on top of a hill overlooking Cebu City proper. It has all the amenities of a five star hotel. The room is big. The staff is friendly and nice. They see to it that one is comfortable. We only had a problem with their wifi connection. It is slow. But overall we felt safe and relaxed at... More

We stayed during Chinese Lunar New Year. They had activities in the lobby such as the lion and dragon dances, etc. It was fun! They fed the guests free tea and Chinese delicacies. The staff is friendly, charming, and very professional. The lobby is quite impressive. The rooms are average and in need of refurbishing but clean and the beds... More

A little out of town, but only a ten minute taxi ride into the heart of Cebu. Rooms are top quality, restaurant is very pleasant and food is top quality. Breakfast is a vast selection of items for all tastes and finishes at 10.30, so you dont need to wake too early. Swimiing pool in very nice. Everthing is high... More

It is a beautiful hotel, the staff was so friendly and the rooms were amazing! There's even a free buffet in the penthouse if you stay in certain rooms. I stayed here for a week. There's also a l little gift shop.

Had another long and excellent stay at the Marco Polo. Some noise from the nearby construction during the day, but street and vehicle noise at other Hotel can be worse, also all day and night. Thanks to Hans Hauri and Family, Victor and all the hard working and excellent Staff.

My kids love the hotel as we have stayed here for a couple of times every time we come to Cebu. Rooms are clean but not so big but with a good view. Nice bathroom, all in good condition as well as the toiletries are superb. Since it is not located in the CBD, you have to get a transport... More

It was Sinulog when I checked in to Marco Polo. I booked the Junior Suite. I arrived late because of the heavy Sinulog traffic but I was checked in just fine. Their private check in was at the penthouse and everyone who assisted me was very friendly. I was just a little disappointed with the suite. The Premier Room at... More
