“Excellent place to stay on Mactan island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Modern hotel in the Pusok area of Mactan. Exceptionally clean modern rooms, courteous and helpful staff, nice breakfasts and great value. Stayed here three whilst island hopping around the region and was upgraded twice. Only problem is the front facing rooms are facing onto a busy road.

We stayed there last night, having been collected by the hotel from the airport. Our room was clean, modern and comfortably appointed. Everything we needed just for a one night stay. The restaurant next door was, again, very clean, and offered a reasonable choice of dishes. Bonus - our food was recognisable and eatable, which made a refreshing change from Hong Kong where (apologies for stating the obvious) the choice is between VERY high end hotel fare, global fast food outlets and chinese restaurants where the food can be something of a challenge, even to foodies like us. But when in Rome ......

Staff at both the Goldberry Suites and the restaurant were both charming and helpful.

It would be wrong to do this review without mentioning the only downside, which was the fact that the hotel, whilst undoubtedly conveniently placed, is nevertheless one the side of a very busy road, three lanes on each side and the traffic, from our experience, continues 24/7 at a high decibel rating. In all fairness, our room was on the front of the hotel and had we known that the traffic would be so relentless we would have asked to be moved, but we didn't and as a consequence had a very poor nights sleep! Might be worth considering when booking, but as far as we could see, it was the only thing about which we could complain.

This is my second review of the Goldberry Suites & Hotel. My wife and I had a great experience with them last year so we decided to book with them again. We arrived late from Korea and our shuttle was there for us so it was a quick and easy ride to the hotel. We were promptly checked in and were on our way to a good night sleep after a long day of traveling. Nothing changed from one year ago comfortable rooms,very friendly staff, complimentary breakfast however i think we may have paid a little extra for that when we booked the room. The staff remembered us from last year and that was a very nice touch also the free shuttle is nice as well.Thanks again to making the start of our vacation great and we will see you again next year

I enjoyed my stay here. It's surprising to find something new and clean yet affordable in Lapu lapu. Aside from the expensive resort hotels, most of the available hotels here are old. I found out about Goldberry thru TripAdvisor, and I'm glad I tried it. The hotel is new, rooms are spacious and has good interiors. The bathroom was impressively clean and I especially liked the comfortable beddings too. I just hope they add more lighting to the bathroom, and improve their wifi signal in the rooms.
The breakfast was plated and not good at all. They should improve this and give their guests more menu choices. I don't mind paying more if breakfast would be enjoyable with fresh fruit varieties too.
Overall, I'd come back here mainly for their clean rooms and kind front desk staff. There are no restaurants and convenience stores nearby, so the hotel needs excellent F&B service which they failed to provide.

We stayed in this hotel overnight in order to catch our flight in Mactan Airport the next day. We chose it because of its good reviews in TripAdvisor. Upon arrival we were.pleasantly surprised to be told that we had been upgraded to the Presidential Suite. It was perhaps more a matter of convenience to the hotel for having been overbooked in their standard room to move us to a rarely booked room for one night. Needless to say we did not complain esp. when the suite was located at the rear of the building away from traffic. The suite had a spacious living room, dining area, kitchen facilities, an outside veranda, a huge bedroom with beautiful decor, and a modern bathroom. We were quite blown away!

The downside to this hotel is the location. It is right in the middle of a very busy boulevard, flanked by small stores and a neighbourhood that is not very walkable. There is no good stores or restaurants nearby. Thank goodness the Cafe downstairs served very good food including dinner and breakfast. The staff both in in the hotel and restaurant is very helpful and hospitable as well.

So all in all, if one is there for business or on short personal visits but has a ride to go somewhere else for shopping or food and sleep well despite the noise, then I would certainly recommend this hotel. Otherwise if you are a tourist wanting some rest and relaxation, this is not a place to be in. You may want to try other hotels by the beach in the Mactan area or the Marriott in Cebu near the Ayala Mall.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road although because of the busy traffic, even the rear rooms are...

It was my first time to visit Cebu last November 2012. I went with my family and some relatives. The staffs were very accommodating and friendly. It was very convenient for us since it is very near to the airport. The hotel is very clean especially the rooms. I'll definitely stay in Goldberry Suites & Hotel again next time. To everyone who will be visiting Cebu, I recommend Goldberry. I guarantee your money will be worth it.

The Hotel was clean, Staff were friendly. It was a very good experience for me and my family. The kids enjoyed their soft beds, it was really comfortable.
From the hotel the airport takes about 10 minutes so it was quite convenient for travelers. The hotel is situated close to the beaches as well.
Their service was excellent, the people working their were courteous and very helpful. I recommend this hotel to people travelling with their families/ friends. I will definitely book my stay in this hotel next time.
