“Mango Park Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I stayed twice at this hotel. It seems to have been completely renovated. The rooms are of a reasonable size and are neat and clean. The bathroom is quite adequate. You would have to describe this hotel as a "businessman's hotel". They have good security and the staff are helpful and friendly.
The WiFi was problematic during both my stays and my iPhone5 could not connect to the routers just outside my door. There was a sweet spot in the foyer where the WiFi connected to my phone and I was able to send and receive e-mails etc, but dropped out every time I moved slightly!
There is also a nice pool area on the top floor where you can chill out with a pleasant breeze and the WiFi worked just fine.
Breakfast catered to both western and asian tastes and was quite adequate.
The hotel is "kind of stark", like a hospital. It could do with more green plants around the foyer and breakfast area.
Generally I prefer hotels with more character rater than this "modern, functional" hotel, but t was quite good for Cebu.
Main attraction for me was the great travel agent at the entrance to the hotel (not connected with the hotel). It was worth paying a premium for Mango just to have easy access to a competent travel agent. If you have travelled in the Philippines you will know good ones are hard to come by.

Thank you for the review Mr. Hohaus and for staying again with us.

Yes. We have completed renovating the hotel and we apologize for the inconvenience especially our WIFI where some hotspots are unstable there for not accessible at times. This may be a result from the construction where the wiring must have been affected. We have raised this immediate concern to Management and will be taken care of immediately.

As for the furnishings, yes we agree and is still waiting for the final touches to be done. :)
We just opened the lobby about a week ago...

Again, thank you and we hope to see you soon.

Hi,

Thank you for the review. We appreciate it very much and for us to improve on our services.
We will look into the incident that WIFI was not working in the rooms since it is a very major concern for us where connectivity to the internet is vital to most of our Guests.

We have also addressed the concerns of these kids, who are perhaps in the influence of drugs in our community in order for our local government to act on it. So far there have been no incidents reported of persons being snatched. But we will address this safety concern.

Thank you and we hope to see you again on your next visit.

It was my gf's bday when we went to cebu. I think of something that would really surprise her. I asked for the hotels assistance and I really didn't expect the quality service they provided. I emailed them and they agreed. When we arrived at the hotel, I secretly gave the scented candles, rose petals and the tarpaulin to be placed in the room so when we come back, she will see the happy bday banner. Not so far from the busy downtown cebu but quiet place. They gave me 50% discount on their suite and their breakfast buffet is superb.

Room Tip: Swimming pool is cold though

Hi Sir,

Thank you for your honest review. You are most welcome and we are glad that you liked our service. We always try our best to delight our Guests in the best way possible. At the same time, since we felt that it was a special day for both of you and having our Suite Rooms available at that time, it is our pleasure to extend an upgrade to Guests celebrating special occasions as long as availability is not a problem. We just opened our new Food outlet #46 Mango Avenue which gives our Guests a culinary experience in the food we serve. We are glad you like our new food.

Good luck to you and your girl friend and we hope to see you again.

I and my girlfriend stayed here for a 2 week break , we would stay here again that's for sure , All the staff and sercuity staff were always had a postive attitude wanting to help you , Changed towels and bed sheets etc every day , our room was clean we had a room that faces the street lot better more daylight , not at all noisy , I think they should invest in new A/C in each room very noisy , Breakfast was good , nice selection of local food and drink with fresh fruit , Not far from the Mall only 60 pesco s by Taxi , we had no problems at all worth it for a Budget hotel , PS. Clean swimming pool top floor .

Room Tip: Very good place to eat next door The Lighthouse , serving local fish and good beer

The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating during our whole stay. The location is very convenient cause its near Ayala, no hassle at all. And there's a breakfast buffet which completed the hotel experience for us. We will definitely go back. :)

It has been 10 years since I was able to go back to my second home (Mango Park). Yes, stayed here from 1998 to 2002, our office is just across the hotel. When we arrived last weekend, they were renovating again to make guest to have a pleasant stay (they will have Al Fresco Cafe). Very simple amenities but what tops it all is the friendly hotel staff always willing to help. I have my whole family stayed overnight (we came from a vacation trip from Bohol). The location is near Ayala Mall and SM, as well as Fuente (all in 10-15minutes travel time). It is near the historic Lighthouse Restaurant where they served the famous pritchon (which we have for dinner), a week old suckling pig crispy to the last bite. The buffet is good, danggit, cebu longganisa, hotdog, fried rice, fruits, juices, free flowing brewed coffee and tea.. cool,

Room Tip: the suite room is quite and located at the far end, so no disturbance from late night guest. standar...

Dont expect anything fancy.

Comfortable beds, clean room.

Drainage in the bathroom a bit slow, but its not a big deal.

Good central location.

Breakfast buffet is very good. Rice, toast, eggs, corned beef hash, chorizos, dried fish, fruits. Yummy.
