“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I think it's good for those who like to play casino & go for a night place but for me not so. I stayed here for 3days because of my friends wedding nothing unusual. The room rate it's not expensive but the room light is dark, I don't advise to go here if you want to take rest because its in the city. For me I more like to resort hotel but if you like just to sleep @ go around the city this place is good...

What a hotel...!!! Door persons always smiling greet you with a warm hello... security walk through comfortable and pleasant. Magnificent Lobby... high vaulted beautifully painted ceiling. Off to the right, 5 or 6 restaurants. If you take the room with breakfast included... EXCELLENT choice... buffet style with many... many choices... Western or Pilipino... of course "a la carte" if you want. On the left... a few boutiques... a business center... snail mail... photocopy... fax... etc. Also have a "show room"... have shows a couple of times a week reasonable prices... good shows. Desk staff are excellent... will go out of their way to accommodate requests from sightseeing to restaurants or whatever. Rooms are spacious and well kept. Laundry service is great. Mini bar stocked every day. FREE water... coffee... wifi in the room. Poolside is beautiful... bar and snacks available. Didn't have time for the gym... lol...!!! Taxi stand off to the side... takes maybe 2 minutes to get a cab... 24/7...!!! All in all... just a wonderful place to stay... EXCELLENT staff all around... VERY clean and comfortable...!!! Will be going back there on my next trip for sure...!!!

Very nice and clean! The service is outstanding, like most Pinoy places. Also, the continental breakfast... AMAZING! Very convenient location and many services are available to get you throughout Cebu City.
If you call, you can a better price, but either way the price is worth it.

**Was actually there May 2012..

I often book at Grand Regal in Davao City due to the size of the room and short distance from the airport. Checking in is a breeze and staff are well mannered. The rooms are spacious, breakfast buffet have so many selection. I like the native chocolate that they serve. If you plan of staying for several days, menu are different everyday. The other attraction are the jewelry stores at the lobby where you can buy jewelries at bargain prices. But you have to bargain because prices are not fixed. There are good restaurants near it such as Swiss deli, Harana among others. But when in Davao don't miss the crab eat all you can buffet. Price is reasonable for the food offered.

Room Tip: Choose the ones fronting the streets for natural light, high floors and no smoking rooms.

This is one hotel that is better experience through web browsing. Very disappointed with the room which looked so delapidated and everything worn out. Service sucks. I don't even know why it is marketed as a 5star hotel. I'd it give 2 Stars the most.

Visited the place before in 2000 and I think it was better thn. Staff doesn't seem to know anything. Customer service at its lowest, from the lobby, front desk, concierge, housekeeping, gymnasium, and restaurants.

Check-In: Had to stand in line for around 5 min and it seemed as if my reservation was no where to be found since I used my Chinese name but still I gave English name when my company made the reservation through hotline.

Bell service: luggage took some time coming up. Duty manager gensan apologized and explained to me reason for delay.

Housekeeping: terrible job with room set up and cleaning. Furniture looked dusty and moldy. There was a stench in the oom something like a musky smell. The bed was very oomfortble but there was no bathrobe provide. The air conditioning didn't cool as much as I had wanted it to taking into consideration Asian weather which would require better cooling facilities.

Restaurant UNO: good food and the service here is much better compared to other hotels outlets for eating. Accomodating staff who took into consideration in your food preferences. Very impressed with one lady at the power bar who was very knowledgable about almost everything about the hotel. She spoke with passion and was very pleasant to talk to. Gave brilliant recommendations as to what places to visit, things to do in Cebu. She even introduced me to her young boy Cody and cohereced me try out their gym facilities which I did the following day.

Room Tip: Either side gives you a good view of the island

We stayed in this hotel Aug. 2-4, 2013. Renovated lobby gives the impression of a nicely appointed luxury hotel but when we got to our rooms, it's a different story. We stayed at a suite only to find worn out carpets and poorly maintained interiors. For the price we paid, the suite was not worth it.

The buffet at UNO and the dim sum at the Chinese restaurant at the mezzanine fared better but nothing exceptional. The staff was pleasant and average. For those paying premium and expecting premium service and facilities, The bottom line is that this is NOT a 5 star nor well maintained hotel.

We have frequently dropped in at the Waterfront Cebu. The staff are very polite and the facilities here are impressive. The last time we visited the hotel was busy upgrading the Great hall. We heard no noise from this and it was being done with minimum fuss.
This hotel has a fantastic Casino and a mall with eateries. We enjoyed both, and I would thoroughly recommend the buffet breakfast - fantastic !

Room Tip: Make sure you book a room with Breakfast included.
