While I'm staying here for one night only, I must say the room is clean and spacious, however the wifi isn't working. The staffs are extremely slow, but at least they are friendly. Overall I have to say, for this price you can expect a much better service and a much cleaner pool area.

Quick and rushed stay for a friend's wedding. It was clean and there seemed to be no issues with service. Only minus was the lack of wifi in the rooms. One has to sit in the lobby to access wifi, which can be quite annoying. Breakfast was great and fresh. Make sure to get a sea facing room, else there... More

It is an average hotel, It is clean and about 10 mins. away from the Mactan Airport and around 15-20 mins away from SM Cebu. It is hard to get transportation here, so make sure you inform the front desk ahead of time, so that they can call taxi for you. They have nice and clean facility but not too... More

We stayed at the SotoGrande because it was conveniently located near the domestic airport, and we only spent a night there. The negatives are few: the suite needed a bit of a spruce up, with a newer TV, and the bathroom could do with a new refurbishment. The hotel is situated in a gated community, which means you're away from... More

It was my parents post Anniversary Celebration yet i was discouraged to know that they dont have something special for them or for any special something for their guests celebrating special events on their hotel. We stayed on a suite room and i can tell that the room was really spacious. It was clean though some parts of the room... More

At first glance its a nice newish hotel complex of three hotels in a wilderness a few miles from anywhere, but its not quite right. The SotoGrande itself doesn't have a pool, but you can use either of the adjacent hotels ones which is fine, but you have to walk out the back door and40 metres across the staff car-park,... More

I have stayed at SotoGrande several times over the past few years and have always found it to be a good hotel. It is on Lapu-Lapu Island which is not on Cebu Island. You have to cross the bridge past the airport to get to Cebu. The hotel is in a SAFE and quiet area. Taxi drivers need to present... More

We stayed 5 nights at soto with 2 kids. Rooms are rather basic and minor minus about the aperture between balcony door and frame that allows air to flow to room and bang room door audibly in the night time. Staff is great, very friendly and they look after your needs well. Breakfast buffet is also good, although pretty much... More

Haven't tried their beach or pool area, so can't comment on that. The rooms are okay. Suites are big enough, however, when it rained heavily our balcony flooded. Reaching the room's carpeted floors. :( Staffs are very nice and accommodating. Breakfast buffet is good too. A bit far from the main road, will trouble you... if you are not good... More

On the positive side, this hotel is in one of the most quiet places in Mactan. You're away from the incessant noise of beeping taxis, from the ubiquitous fumes which are a hallmark of this country. And the sea view is nice. But the resort itself is a disaster. The toilet stopped working about 10 p.m. I called downstairs. A... More
