During our 10 day stay over in Cebu, we decided to stay at the Holiday Spa which came highly recommended by one of ours friends. We booked a pool view room, 1500php. We arrived early, before check in time and unlike the previous hotel, the receptionist, simply said check in is at 2pm, Sir. Our bags were stored and we went off to the hospital to visit a friend there. When we returned in late evening after a busy day, hospital, mall, lunch meeting, shopping, dinner meeting, we discovered that our check in form had been lost, consequently i had to do it all again. The porter carried the one small shopping bag to the room even thought i insisted not to, just give me the key, i hate others carrying my bags. When we arrived at the room he proceeded to turn on the tv air con and every light, and then waited for his tip . . i proceeded to turn off the aircon tv and most of the lights and waited for him to leave. My wife and i got changed to take a 2130hrs swim in then huge pool. We went to the pool side only to be informed it was closed for cleaning !!! grr this was the sole purpose for booking this hotel, so we could take a late night swim. The room was however very large and gave the impression of high quality, the bed massive, however only 4 terrible pillows. A large amount of budget had been spent on the room, but the shower head was aweful, saved money there . .
In the morning i was woken to the noise of swimmers right outside my window, and also the bright sunlight streaming in. No black out curtain used here. We got up and had a little swim in the pool, however its not a fun pool it was filled with serious swimmer types, kind of off putting if ur a terrible swimmer... Whist its in a prime location, the facilities are good, but i wouldnt stay here again . . over priced for what we recieved, like so many other hotels . .
