“Cebuano hospitality at its best!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

its been our nth time in cebu, we've tried several hotels already and so far this is the most service-oriented & the most complete business hotel we've ever stayed in metro cebu! we arrived on sat from super early flight of 5:30am and to our surprise we are ready for check-in this early! the room was spacious & well-appointed. the views are gorgeous - from left is the cebu strait, on right is mountain & middle view is the city skyline... 3 views in just one room! other perks included are:
> free wifi all over the hotel
> nepresso coffee anytime & anyday in the room
> complimentary 4 bottles of water
> new ipod dock
> free baggage assistance
> free pressing of two clothes
> complimentary buffet bfast which you can chose on feria restaurant on ground floor or in the business lounge on 20th floor for more private dining
> complimentary use of board room for 2 hours
> complimentary cocktail drinks in business lounge
> complimentary use of swimming pools & fitness center
> highly recommended blue spa with relaxing ambience, privacy, soothing massage with reasonable price
> free late check out
on our first day, since its sunny & hot outside we opted to request for food delivery. instead of me going to lobby to pick-up the food the hotel staff delivered it to our room with no extra charge or service fee but with a huge smile on his face :)
radisson blu hotel exemplifies cebuano hospitality at its best! keep it up!!, see u again soonest!!!

Room Tip: go for the business room & you'll be glad you pampered yourselves with all of this good offe...

Radisson Blu has to be one of the best hotels within Cebu city. The staff are highly professional and highly accommodating to your needs. Prices within the resort are very reasonable and like many other people comment the breakfast has a great selection. The nearby mall is great to have so close but i would recommend going to Ayala mall which is only 5-10 minutes by taxi as the restaurants and ambience is much better.

The pool is great but be sure to get down early to get as much sunlight as possible as it disappears around 14:00 :) I will be sure to stay there again if i am passing through Cebu.

Special mentions to Gladys/Aldwin in the lobby bar and Kim in the Pool bar for great service....

The room is lush and spacious. Staff are extremely hospitable and help can be found at every corner. Stayed two nights for a conference and the food served in the meeting hall was par excellence. Just next to SM City Mall, you can get just about anything from curios to local fare or Starbucks if you miss it. The basement gym has good equipment and I spent over 4 hrs there in a 3 day 2 night stay! Very conducive to catch up on fitness.

We stayed here for a few days while in transit on our way to Panglao. We stayed on a recommendation of a friend who lives in Cebu. It's a little far from the airport but it's a cheap taxi ride away. The nearby area isn't ideal but the SM mall is attached to the hotel so that's a plus. We did a lot of walking around at night and we never had any problems.

The hotel property is gorgeous. Period. There's a pool, an outdoor bar and restaurant, a spa (we had a great couples hot stone massage), a gym. The rooms are wonderful and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Plus the lobby bar with the band and the breakfast buffet (surcharge but worth it) was outrageous. Definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 days back in May 2012 with family. The cleans were very clean with free wi-fi and the standard amenities for the Radisson chain hotels. The best part of this hotel was the friendly staff and the location right across the SM Mall and close proximity to the ferry terminal to the other islands. If you want a hotel in the city center, this is not for you. But if you want a new, grand, spacious hotel lobby, gym, pool and location near the ferry terminal, the good value of this hotel cannot be overlooked.

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT facing the ocean because of the containers by the ferry. The mountain view is ac...

Only 30 minutes from the airport this hotel is located next to the SM Mall with its choice of shops, many restaurants. Local jeepneys and taxis there too. It's handy for the port and minutes in a taxi to where the nightlife is. The hotel is of high standard with friendly staff. A lovely large pool area but the sun disappears behind the hotel from 14:00 and shade covers the whole area. We didn't use the bar or restaurant.

I stayed here four days during a much needed midport. I happened to be on two different reservations, so I got to experience two different rooms. Both were nice, but the Premier room (given to me with complements because they were out of anything less) was spectacular. A small hallway makes any hotel room better.

The Feria breakfast was really something special, and all the staff were very friendly. Also, the gym was way better than it had to be.

The proximity to the mall was really nice.

If you're here and have time to stop by the Cocktail Hour upstairs, do so. The food is pretty exciting, and the drinks are a little above average. That will set you back 500 PHP, but it's included in some room types.

Room Tip: Get a corner room if you can.
