We went to Cebu for the experience of the culture and tourist attractions. Thank god for the hotel as there is little for a tourist to see and do in Cebu and without this excellent hotel their pool, friendly staff and the very large adjoining shopping centre all would have been lost. The rooms are very good, large and with all facilities. The food is great, the breakfast selection is the largest I have ever seen in my travels which are wide and varied. I was most impressed with everything about this hotel. My only negative is they need a little more seating in the very large foyer and security is a little over the top with a search of bags and shoulder paks every time you enter the doors.

Good experience in this hotel. The hotel is just beside a mall. So we went there for our lunch while waiting for our room. There was a delay since the hotel was fully booked. But they allowed us for late check-out and put us in a room overlooking the pool. I loved the breakfast with great selection. Fresh fruits are sliced in view. Fresh fruit drinks are also available. They have typical Filipino breakfast selection if you are a tourist and would like to get a taste of Filipino cuisines. The rooms are very nice and modern. True to a 5-star experience.

We got a good coupon deal a few months back when my partner had to go on a business trip.

Pros: Hotel is very new and modern! Rooms are up to date with electronic switches and has new furniture. Most noteable thing we remember in this place is the buffet breakfast! It exceeded our expectations. Lots of selections and they taste good. A Good mix of local and international food. Right next to SM Cebu and it's very easy to take a cab to anywhere within the Cebu area. Also walking distance from CNT Lechon, a local favorite for Cebu Lechon.

Cons (relatively minor): Lobby is large and somewhat grand but I do recall having difficulty finding a place to sit while waiting for check-in. Check-in staff are a bit inefficient. The pool was smaller than what I've seen in the pics. Lobby and check-in area can get crowded during busy hours.

I would definitely consider staying here again unless the other choice is Shangrila Mactan.

Stayed here for 22 nights last Dec2012-Jan2012 with my fiance (turned hubby on the 7th of jan). 19 out of 22 nights we stayed in an Executive Suite on the 20th floor, I believed room 2008 right across the club room. The room was very spacious and it had 2 toilets, very clean. Every afternoon they "touch-up" the room and put some treats like cakes or a box of choc on the bed. I love the floor to ceiling mirror on the entire left wall when you go in, the interior is practical and modern and very elegant. We had breakfast for all mornings in the club room, which had limited food choices but it was ok since the breakfast was very exclusive to club room guests. Every late afternoon they open up another buffet of food cocktails, wines, champagnes, cocktails and all alcoholic drinks. I love their various choices of mini cakes, nachos and dips, bread and cheese. The club room is open all day and you can get water and any juice, have access to the TV room and computer room as well. Some of the staff were lovely, but a couple of them are not friendly at all. We were on the 20th floor, but it doesnt take long at all to get to it as the elevator was fast. The view from the room was good and the most convenient part was the free wifi, not like ones most hotels have. For the 3 out of 22 nights we stayed in a deluxe room. After the 19 nights we were supposed to leave for Boracay but decided to cancel the whole Boracay trip since I got sick badly but nevertheless Radisson Blu still accommodated us without pre-booking to think that it was during the actual Sinulog Festival. At that point we had breakfast at the Feria. They had a lot of food choices from Asian cuisines to Western. You can have ice cream early in the morning too. The deluxe room on the 18th floor was spacious as well, they put us in a room where we can see fireworks from SM Mall. Overall the 22-night stay was great. This hotel is right next to the shopping centre which is very convenient for food and shopping. The BIG white and blue christmas tree was so cool it was my favorite.

Few months later my mother in law and I stayed for 8 nights in a Business Suite, it was a bit smaller than the Executive but it was very practical as well. It only had 1 toilet compared to the Executive. We stayed on the 20th floor still, right down the hall from where we stayed last Dec-Jan. Then for the next 7 nights I stayed with my hubby in rm 2008 again an executive suite, and his parents stayed in the room on top of us on the 21st floor which was of the same suite type. There was never a bad experience at the Radisson Blu, all facilities were new since the hotel was like 2 years old. If you ever have a problem with getting to places around Cebu, ask the concierge not the reception. Also, my hubby said the gym was very good. The blue spa was alright. The pool doesnt go any deeper than 5ft if I can recall. It was like a pool in the middle of the city as you can see SM's carpark from the pool. The check in process on the ground floor was fast as well as the Club Room check in which is on the 20th floor. The hotel was always CLEAN. There were heaps of staff. Overall, I love this hotel. We are booking for our next trip at the moment. :)

Room Tip: Which ever room you get is worth every penny. From deluxe rooms to all the suites.

Stayed one night for a workshop and was very pleased with the consistent attentiveness of the staff, from the pick-up at the airport, check in, throughout the workshop, for the meals at Feria, at check out and all the way back to Cebu airport. They anticipate your needs and make you want to come back for more pampering.

The Radisson Blu Cebu is a mere 30-45 minute drive from the airport. It is located right on the port area just beside the giant SM City Cebu.I was pretty amazed by the its chic interiors. The lobby and the lobby lounge exudes sophistication with a very modern feel. The check-in process was pretty fast since i was ushered on the 20th floor. I opted for the Business Class suite with a free access to the superbly chic Business Class Lounge where you can have everything you could possibly wanted. My room was huge, neatly maintained by the wonderful staff. Always have fresh towels. lots of water, and they replenished my toiletries everyday making sure i have enough. The hotel spoiled me with lots of chocolates! Plenty of choices for breakfast! The stairs leading to the pool area is so grand it felt like stepping on the stairs of Aphrodite's temple. The pool was well maintained and i enjoyed swimming and lounging there whenever i decided to stay in the hotel. The STAFF....theyre all ready to lend a helping hand, service with a smile and you can feel their sincerity. My hotel of choice in Cebu, it was beyond five-star!

Room Tip: -Opt for a room on the upper floors, facing the city. You'll get the most magnificent view. -Bu...

Stayed here for two nights using Club Carlson Points. Upgraded to Premiere Deluxe room as Gold member by the friendly and professional front desk staff. Room was in excellent state and well-designed. Public spaces were spacious, clean and secure. Room service was quick and reasonably-priced. Buffet dinner was designed for the mostly Asian clientele, with few or no Western selections, but very popular (should be advertised as 'Asian' not 'international'). Pool area is excellent but really needs more lounges. All the staff here, from the efficient concierge and front-desk, to the friendly pool, restaurant and housekeeping staff should be commended for their outstanding service. Glad to have a new home base in Cebu. Well done!
