“Did not like this very much !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

I really did not like this place....despite the fact that the staff were nice enough and the room was clean and reasonably comfortable. The food i had was fine and reasonably priced.The whole place though needs a refit , particularly the bathroom which was horrible. The sound proofing was completely inadequate and the honking of motorbikes and minivans outside could be heard throughout the hotel. It was terrible during the day but toned down a bit at night.

The main advantage is its proximity to the airport , however the included free shuttle showed up nearly half an hour late. Plenty of other people seem to have found it OK but I would personally be in no hurry back.

The Bellavista, my home away from home for three months.
Could not have asked for better staff and instantly made to feel like one of the Bellavista family.
Stayed for three months and cant believe that it went so fast.
Staff went out of their way to help me in learning the Local Language, tossing me a new word to add to my growing vocabulary.
The added morning breakfast with coffee and juice was filling and varied and did not miss a morning to try out the local cuisine.
Hotel is a nice walk away to the closest Gaisano mall Mactan, and Grand mall a quick 10 minute taxi ride. From management, doorman, service staff and kitchen staff, I can not adequately express my utmost thanks...

Quite a nice hotel, not new and not too old. The rooms were clean and are a good size. Flat screen TV with cable, worked well. Everything worked in the bathroom and it was clean. You do not get million dollar views, the area is typical Philippines, pretty grungy. The staff were accommodating and friendly. The buffet breakfast was included in the price $65 and it was okay. It's the Philippines so the food is so so. Internet is free and works well in the lobby. The good part that it is close to Gaisano and the airport and about 20 minutes from the port. Overall it is a middle of the road hotel and good for a few days stay.

I had the most pleasant experience at the Bellavista Hotel. The proximity to the airport was definitely a plus. Airport shuttle service was very efficient and the staff went the extra mile to make my stay memorable. The rooftop pool is easily the best place to view Mactan Channel with the Cebu City skyline behind it. My executive room was stylish and very comfortable. It is a very good value hotel especially with the buffet breakfast included.

This is a well priced hotel. The lobby is aging in parts and a decent coat of paint and good lighting would improve the looks of the place. Overall, the rooms are a decent size, everything worked, beds clean, bathroom clean with some complimentary toiletries and water. The breakfast was decent and the staff were friendly.

the sucks with roaches crawling but the staff were accomodaing at times. and the sorrounding area is not pretty to look at. I can see from the pool area there are trash sorrounding the hotel area. anyway maybe its because its in a residential area. the only good part is its only 5mins. away to the airport. next time il try staying at another hotel just in front of the bellavista. if i recall it correctly i think its goldberry hotel. i'l try to stay there next time.

pretty dissapointed! not coming back.

Kinda cool art deco ero hotel 5 minutes from the airport! We stayed here our last night in the Philippines. We could have stayed at the sister hotel next door the Cesario, but we wanted a little nicer room so we payed more for the Bellavista. Our room was only about $65 a night and it was clean and comfortable. When people complain about microscopic bugs and such I really don't know what they expect when traveling to a sub-tropic foreign country. You are not in Kansas anymore, you are in the Phils! This was a clean hotel, nice room with modernish accomidations. We really took advantage of the rooftop pool and spent our last day relaxing. They have a 24 hour lounge and they serve off the menu, although I thought the food was just ok. They offer a free breakfast buffet, which I enjoyed more than the order off the menu food. They also have a free airport shuttle, which we used a total of 4 times so that saved a lot of hassle. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay again!

Room Tip: They have a strange set up, two single beds $65 One king size bed $124 We got the two singles and...
