Since I had to attend a meeting at Cebu City, I stayed at this hotel in Mactan, which is not a good idea because it took more than 1.5 hours to return to the hotel from Cebu City.
My friend felt a gap between the impression given by the photo images on the Web and the real impression, which is not surprising and often happens.My impression was very nice; my room is just 88 steps far from the water line of the sea shore.
As you find in another comment, this hotel locates at the isolate place; there is no shop near there. So, I went the restaurant in the hotel, which is in the nice atmosphere and whose dishes are very tasty.
There are many Japanese in this hotel similarly to the other hotels in Mactan. If you do not like to see such people, you should avoid this hotels (and the hotels in Mactan).
This hotel provides laundry service, but the hotel send them to outside and it takes 2 days. So, I did not use the laundry service.
