“affordable and has everything you need”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2015 via mobile

My family and I stayed here for 6 days. An infant and a preschooler are traveling with us so this place is perfect for cooking kids' meals/ baby food. The staff is VERY helpful. Would like to make a shout out to CINDY who is perhaps the nicest person I met in Cebu who accommodates our requests and even supplied some fresh vegetables from her backyard garden :P

There is an eatery just out front, a cab is always available, and is a tricycle and a short walk away to Savemore. The booster pump is noisy, though you can just unplugged it as its main purpose is to enhance water pressure. Water pressure is still ok without the booster.

We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Cebu.

Stayed February 2015, traveled with family

I visited Cebu with my girlfriend and her daughter and this place was perfect - 2 bedrooms upstairs and lounge, dining and kitchen downstairs. Having the cooking facility was great option to always eating out and even better when you need to satisfy the requests of a young child.
There are restaurants and a supermarket within easy walking distance 5-10 mins so eating in or out is not hard to do. There always seemed to be a taxi outside when we needed on. And as others have said, the staff are very helpful.
It is as described on the websites and affordably priced... I'd definitely stay there again.

Recently had a week stay here, my first time back at SDR in over 2 years and must say there has been some welcome improvements. Very close to airport and 5 minutes to Marina Mall (walking). The staff are friendly and always helpful, but I noticed some great improvements. New toilets that flush well, new shower head and no more loud knocking or mechanical noises in room when running water. Had a lovely room (521) high enough to limit most street noise, and generally I had a great nights sleep. Room was cleaned twice during our stay without extra cost and they did a great job. Could stay here forever, the rooms are very large for the price and the option to cook in the room is one that is hard to find in Cebu area. Great if you want a change from eating out or take aways. Very fast Broadband free cable internet and also free wifi available. Wonderful stay and thanks and a big hello to all the staff.

Room Tip: Pick one higher up if choosing a room on the road, building looks run down and not crash hot outside...

We stayed at SDR apartments for several months as part of our emergency response to typhoon Yolanda efforts, so it had to be a home away from home. The staff was incredible, helping where they could and keeping our new base as comfortable as we could never thank them enough for. The units had all the amenities that one could need, even for an extended stay. The pool and the close proximity to very good restaurants (including Starbucks) helped us be relaxed during harsh working times. The centre of Cebu is only a 20-30 minute taxi ride away, leaving tons of options for entertainment in the evenings or on weekends.

Although we no longer live at SDR, each one of us would be happy to stay there again in the future. Greetings to all the team from Alexandra, Ben, Andreas and the rest :)

Hi Alexandra, on behalf of the entire SDR team, we were so touched by your efforts for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. As you know, our company had its own efforts to try to make a difference to those who were affected. We know that your team made a major difference with your fine efforts and serving you all was just a small way we can thank people like yourselves for doing so much good for others. It was a pleasure hosting you. The next time you stay with us I hope it is for pure enjoyment. More power to you all. Thanks again for your charity for choosing SDR as your accommodation in Cebu. Love, love, love! Team SDR

I stayed in SDR Serviced Apartments a number of times over the years. The experience has always been good. It is conveniently situated just 5 minutes away from the airport, good restaurants within walking distance, and some of the best diving sites on Mactan, and Cebu within a short taxi ride. SDR location is hard to beat!
They have different size apartments on offer depending on budget. I stayed in the small studio which was very comfortable, and clean. Lots of thought has gone into the small details. The layout and the quality of the materials used is good. The mattress and sofa were very comfortable. There is a small kitchen, conveniently outfitted. SDR management did not cut corners. I found their staff to be helpful and pleasant.
I have always had a very enjoyable stay and good experience and I would highly recommend SDR Serviced Apartments to anyone traveling and staying in Cebu for a short or longer stay.
I am looking forward to my next visit!
