From your list, I've stayed before at Shangri-la, Plantation Bay and Alegre. You should strike Alegre from your list if you want entertainment and not get bored. I recommend Shangri-la but you have to take a taxi and go to downtown Cebu City for nightlife, taxi fare is cheap so it is not much of a problem.

Here are the places to see and things to do in Cebu City and the rest of the province as reviewed by fellow TripAdvisor members --> tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g294261-Activiti…

During peak hours traffic between Cebu City and Mactaan can be as bad as Manila. It once took us 1.5 hrs so you need to factor that in.The trip generally should take no longer than 20-30 mins,

Alegre is very boring. I think it's good for honeymooners. I like Plantation Bay but it's farther and the traffic in Basak can get really bad. I think Shangrila is better location wise. Most of the night time entertainment will be in Cebu.

I suggest Plantation Bay, why? because my kids there has a mermaid swimming lessons and of course you need to book it one day ahead, I choose Plantation Bay because, they have many things to do inside the resort. First is mermaid swimming lessons hehehe, 2nd is stand up paddle board, kayaking or yoga, they have huge lagoon, besides the breakfast there are awesome.So my children and my maidens love it there.Have a nice day.
