We stayed for 2 nights in the Quest hotel with the intention of exploring Cebu and Bohol. Unfortunately due to the unreliability of Philippine Airways we got there too late to see much of Cebu but were very happy with our choice of hotel.
Coming from a bad hotel experience in Puerto Princesa we were in need of a little luxury and this place definitely delivers.
Our room was fantastic. We were lucky enough to be put in a corner room which was spacious and with a double aspect view of the Cebu City skyline. The room was spotless with a huge super Kingsize bed and all the amenities you could need, including rather bizarrely a torch, which I later found out was normal for the Philippines. What with the relatively regular power cuts (which happen all over the Archipelago).
The main reason for me choosing this hotel was for the pool. After a day in intense heat sightseeing, the idea of diving into a rooftop pool with the added bonus of a swim up bar was just what we needed. The pool ( and it's bar) stay open until 9 pm so it's the perfect way to chill before dinner.
I have to give a special mention the amazing Porters that help you with your luggage and even more importantly when you need a taxi. All the staff were highly professional but these guys went above and beyond in my opinion. Every time we got in a taxi they made sure the driver turned on the meter, and when disembarking, checked the taxi to make sure we hadn't left anything. They were also incredibly polite and helpful and happy to answer any question about good places to go to eat etc.
I was very happy with my stay at Quest and wouldn't stay anywhere else if I ever return to Cebu.
