My wife and I spent 12 nights at the Shacene in February 2013. We stayed in their best 'luxury room' for P1500 per night. The room was in great shape in a newer building next to the main complex. (They also have several buildings across the street where their cheaper rooms are located.) Our room had an ocean view and we heard relaxing sound of waves crashing on the sea wall the entire trip. The staff at the hotel are friendly and welcoming. Internet is available in the main lobby and restaurant area. Bathroom and shower worked okay with the exception of the shower's hot water heater, which was finicky and maintenance had to repair 3 times during our stay. The food at the hotel is higher priced but we loved the taste of everything we ordered and there was always lots and lots of food on the plate! Overall we had a great stay here and would happily go back there. Located within walking distance of main street and gracery store is just a 5 minute walk. This is a hotel in a rural area(not cebu or metro manila) and one should not be expecting 5 star amenities. We did see ants in the room, but that is typical in this area - nothing to be alarmed about. I would stay here again without hesitation.
