“Good hotel at great value per money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012 via mobile

The lobby is currently being renovated so the place does not look as appealing as it normally does but the hotel promising it will be better than before. The rooms appear to be renovated already and the hotel rate is currently more affordable than other class hotels in Cebu.

This is the second year in a row we have stayed here. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Pool is clean and refreshing. Check in was a breeze and our room was spacious.

This property is currently undergoing renovation for their main lobby.

If you have allergies, it would be best to avoid the hotel for now.

Ongoing renovation works are not contained, and during my last stay dust was prevalent in the lobby area.

The rooms are still spacious and ok in terms of overall experience. The TV needs a major upgrade to a flatscreen version.

The Uno coffee shop has a good range of choices for breakfast. Avoid the yogurt since they are at room temperature when served.

I have not tried the recreation facilities.

Nice hotel. Avarge staff. porrly standard casino and rooms. Dont expect las vegas standard.
4* breakfast. the best one in cebu.
Lots of cakes in the lobby, tasted amazing.
Room smelled like smoke. And they did not give us a new one, they just sprayed some refreshener, that made the room smell like an old dirty car. Thats why they end up with the 2 star in this reveiw.
If they update their rooms, and their casino. And try to offer better customer service. maby they will be one of the best in cebu.

Room Tip: Non-smoke! but doesnt have to mean non smoke.

This was quite a nice few days spent, The building was grand and a real feast for the eyes, so many things going on inside it, people everywhere, shops, patisseries, the casino its self, and reception seemed to be shoved a little up the back but nice looking all the same. upon arriving there there was quite a large queue to check in (bad timing I guess) however upon arriving thanks to pre-booking at hotels.com the rest was fast and smooth..

Upon arriving at the room however the cleaning was still going on and there was a good 30 min wait for the room to be ready, this was actually going on quite a way past the check in time, so that was a little annoying, but its not a deal breaker im not that much of a whinger.my time isn't THAT precious..lol..

upon getting into the room it was quite lovely, quite grand in size, very ample, the mini bar was stocked and restocked daily, cleaning was normally quite efficient and everything changed, the room was a little darker made so by the timbers in the room, but it made it quite cosy really, the view was really nice to the mountains and churches over Cebu.

It was the breakfast that was the most amazing part of this experience and the lunch! absolutely to die for, this was the biggest and most endless buffet spread I've ever seen in any hotel I've stayed in, I would have paid the room cost just for this buffet! so I'm staying here again just for this.

Overall a Very good experience, the few little niggles really aren't enough to bring the whole experience down for me, and that food was amazing.

Room Tip: Rather long wait times for the Elevator, and quite lengthy trips were evident on my trip, perhaps a...

This hotel is located very near cebu business park where shopping at ayala center is very near and i.t. Park across has the best disco (classy disco place)- penthouse/ loft and many food establishments that are open 24 hours. This hotel has the biggest ballroom for events like most concerts and boxing fights, the best 24 hours gym (citigym) with steam bath and sauna with group classes too, a huge pool and garden, the biggest casino, the grandest lobby among the hotels in cebu, an indoor promenade with 4 restaurants (tin gow- chinese is very yummy but pricey though), cafe uno for the intercontinental buffet, a japanese restaurant and ab italian restaurant. The restaurants probably are not the best in town but is considered within the international cuisines standards. A must visit! The rooms are nothing special though. Except if you stay in the executive suite room were its huge and nice otherwise, rooms becomes ordinary.
