We stayed during Chinese Lunar New Year. They had activities in the lobby such as the lion and dragon dances, etc. It was fun! They fed the guests free tea and Chinese delicacies.
The staff is friendly, charming, and very professional. The lobby is quite impressive. The rooms are average and in need of refurbishing but clean and the beds are comfortable! Water pressure in the loo is good too.
We ordered room service. The food was good, the prices were very reasonable and the servings were huge! Disappointingly, it took them about an hour to bring the food up from the time we placed the order.
We enjoyed the buffet breakfast a lot. The food tasted good and they had a pancake/waffle station, a bread station, a salad station, a dim sum station, a noodle soup station, a continental and asian breakfast station and an egg station. Yum!
Make sure you visit the Penthouse. The al fresco resto-bar has fabulous views of Cebu city! Its nice and breezy and the food isnt so bad. It can be pricey though.
The hotel is located on a hillside but it is hardly secluded. There are lots of homes and establishments in the area so it can get noisy. Tourists will need to take cabs to the city proper. Ask the doormen to get you a cab. It isnt too expensive and you're bound to reach your destination faster than if you take a jeep. Walking to the city is NOT an option. Its just too far.
