Arriving late or leaving early, this hotel is ideal. Located a few minutes walk from the airport, you can be checked in (or out) without the need for more travel, taxis, or the added hassles when tired or having to be up extra early.
However, that said, the hotel is showing its age, and does need some urgent makeover. The place is clean, the rooms likewise, and offer the required ammenities. The staff are helpful, friendly and attentive.
The breakfast offering is sufficient for most people I would think, its not the best I have had, but its also far from being the worst.
There is a pool for those wanting to cool off, or wash off the travel feeling, and also a gym. The hotel has a casino attached.
Located on Mactan, the hotel is some way from any of the sites of Cebu, or the shopping malls, so I personally wouldnt use it for a long term stay.
Not the best hotel in Cebu/Mactan, but I think serves a useful place for the late or early traveller.

This place is right opposite to Cebu international airport and is walking distance from airport. You dont need a taxi to get to the hotel. The hotel rooms are clean and well equipped with all modern amenities. The food is overall good and the buffet breakfast is a complete delight with loads of options to chose from. The staff is pretty supportive however slow in service after 11pm. overall good value for money.

As much as I love the Waterfront in Lahug. This hotel is just OLD. My aunt who is allergic to dust mites, kept on having allergic reactions. We had to cover the rattan bed and tables in the entire room. I'd like to clarify that our room was clean upon checking in but because of old building, my aunt kept having allergic attacks. We tried staying at the lobby, but still she kept on whizzing. My comforter also had a small tear. Our television, although working the channels keep fizzing out. I think its their cable operator. The only saving grace of this hotel were 2 things. 1. The service 2. Location. We were having an early flight thus we stayed here. But given the chance, I don't think we'll ever come back until they renovate the place. The price we payed was not worth it.

My family checked in at 3PM in this hotel to await my arrival from Korea at 1 am the following day. Since we live in the province which was 3 hours drive from the airport, an overnight stay at a hotel a stone's throw away from the airport seemed to be a good idea.

When I arrived, my dad took our car from the hotel parking lot, but was stopped by the security guard, saying that we had to pay a parking fee. When we explained that we were hotel guests, they asked for a validation stamp, which my dad didnt have since it was in the dead of night.

To hurry things up, since my family didn't want to keep me waiting (I did come from a 20+ hour trip from Korea connecting from the US), my dad paid the P235 parking fee, believing that once he explained the situation to the manager, we would surely get our money back.

We didn't. They said it was because we didn't have our parking ticket validated. A simple stamp and that's it. Frank, the supervisor also said that because they already remitted the money, they couldn't refund us.

I won't stay again at this hotel afain. It's rundown, the carpets are torn in places (6th floor corridor just outside Rm 634), breakfast buffet is so-so, the stench of cigarette smoke and noise from the casino plus THERE IS NO FREE PARKING for guests. Not this guest anyway, even as we explained our case.

There is a newer hotel down the road from the airport, if the only advantage of this Waterfront is its proximity.
