we checked in here reading a few decent reviews but were utterly disappointed by the run down place and the mediocre service levels we experienced right from the start. we checked out a day after, initially wanting to move to Crimson but then read that they have ongoing construction so we opted to go to Movenpick which turned out to...

Booked two amuma spa suite rooms using a dealgrocer coupons which included a 3d/2n stay with airport transfers, buffet breakfast, a 15-minute amuma massage, and 1 buffet lunch at Allegro for Php11500 each.

This was definitely a forgettable experience. We didn't really enjoy our time at this hotel (or Cebu for that matter). The hotel is dated and in need of some capital refurbishment. On the bright side, ALL hotels in the surrounding area seemed to be in need of revitalization. We have been to Cuba and Cuban hotels seemed to be more... More

We were there w/ friends for a day tour one week-end. The place is near Cebu City. Taxi fare from Cebu Ayala Center where we stayed, was only 280 pesos. The place is well kept and the staff were incredibly welcoming to guests both to foreigners and locals. The beach is man made with a small beach front but clean.... More

20 years ago, I would have to say this was one of the top tier, beach resorts in Cebu. It would be "Pushing it" to say that now. Although this is still a decent place, it seems like it is now catering to more middle budget or lower budget tourists. The swim "dress code" seems to no longer be enforced,... More

We went during the 25th anniversary of the resort, which probably contributed to everything and everyone feeling quite festive. As soon as we arrived at the airport, a nice man offered to help us with our luggage and ushered us to the Bluewater Maribago coaster for its free transfer service. The ride to the property took no more than 30... More

Although I only stayed here for one night, I was impressed by the facilities and hospitality at Bluewater. Rooms were clean and spacious and the pool was relaxing. I found the meals to be a tad overpriced and the servings were small. Drinks and dessert were both tasty and reasonably-priced. Very efficient check-in and check-out process and the staff are...
