This hotel is still great, its staff are still attentive friendly and efficient.
Due to some circumstances, we were unable to stay here for our entire Cebu stay, as we would have preferred, but we did manage a few nights.
My partner actually commented that she felt the room was bigger and no worse than the room we had at Marina Bay Sands, and I tend to agree.
We had an item in the room not working, but once reported it was fixed within 30 mins, and that cant be complained about.
The breakfast buffet is terrific, and better than any others we have recently experienced.
I am beginning to see a few little tell tale signs that some things may need attention due to age, and one of these was the pillows. I dont recall experiencing poor pillows in my previous stays, so maybe the ones we had are due to be replaced. There was also an annoying rattle from the aircon, which is again a sign of age and needed maintenance.
These things aside, the Blu will still be my hotel of choice in Cebu City.

The hotel is very accessible, right across is the one of the biggest, if not the biggest, mall in Cebu, SM mall. It's near the port as well and around 20 min from the airport.
The suite room was really posh and the bed was so comfortable, i like the duvet. There's also a bathtub so it's really nice. What i didn't like was just the aircon, when i woke up, i felt like it was so hot, i tried decreasing the temp to 16 but it still felt hot or Cebu was just really hot.

But what i really really liked was their staff and the feeling of security staying in the hotel. I didn't know i dropped my car key down the hallway on my way to the room. When i woke up, i frantically looked for the key. Thinking i might left it inside the car or might have left it somewhere there,i went down to the parking lot. To my horror, i found out i didnt lock the car. Good thing my stuff was still inside. Then the guard came up to me and asked if i was looking for the key and they told they had it. I was sooo relieved! He said the housekeeping found it on the hallway.

Thank you so much Radisson, you've got honest and really wonderful staff! and your parking lot is really secured, two thumbs up!

stayed for 3days, room was okay. Standard looking rooms, right beside SM City Cebu. I personally think the hotel is too dark because of tje black marble interiors and too bare.

Not sure if it's a good location since I didn't go out much, but if SM is all you need, then this would be the best place to stay.

It was my husband's convention and I joined him. The lobby was impressive, I went up to our room and it was great! We had spa at 11pm and I am rating it high too. The next day I discovered that it was just right beside SM, a huge mall where in everything you need is there. I bought some dried mangoes, mango ball candies, otap and dried unsalted danggit. You have to try danggit from Cebu. Near the hotel is also a must try CNT Lechon restaurant, Lechon cooked in Cebu style, sauce used is vinegar. Something that everyone must try.

Room Tip: I guess every room is a good room

Business trips to Cebu City usually are short and stressful. This trip proved otherwise and staying a couple of nights in Radisson Blu was a particular treat.

Here's why: check-in and check out was fast and easy. Even had concerns with booking dates- no problem the wonderful lady on the 20th Flr arranged it with no qualms. Room including the bathroom was spotless and wi-fi was fast and free.

What enamored me more was coffee. . . yes brewed coffee and the nice Nespresso machine in the room. Many thanks to the the ladies in the 20th Flr reception area and yeah the cleaning lady on the 19th - those guys know what customer service is.

Stayed two nights with my family and we had fun with the buffet and the amenity areas (pool and open garden)
Price is very fair for a big hotel in Cebu. Cocktail drinks at the lobby is very nice. You can get a relaxing happy hour with your spouse.
The location is very near the SM Cebu Mall which makes it very convenient for you to buy things that you may need for your vacation.
