4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We just love our room view which is a big backyard of big trees and birds are humming,a very serene place.The food was great,my Australian fiancee loves the food especially our fave gambas al ajilo-prawns.At night when we have our dinner,at poolside,there was the local band that plays our fave song,very romantic indeed.This hotel is also accessible to taxis,and there was mall (Country Mall)at the nearest,and Ayala mall is also near as well.We enjoyed our stay in Cebu and would probably will stay here at Montebello again soon.

You will feel that you are in the paradise even if location just at the back of a big mall. A little outdated rooms. I stayed with kids. Pool is great! And just few steps away from the Gaisano mall where you can grab a bite.

When traveling from the Mactan airport to the Montebello Villa Hotel, it is not hard to see all the development, traffic, people and noise in the ever developing City of Cebu. However, upon arriving through the gates of the Montebello Villa hotel, you will immediately notice how quiet it all suddenly becomes. You then look around and can hardly see any tall structures surrounding this "garden" hotel and the constant wind blowing through the property makes you believe that you are not in the middle of downtown Cebu City.
The hotel is over 40 years old and various sections of the hotel have been recently renovated. The Deluxe room that I stayed in was quite a large space if compared to other hotels that advertise Deluxe room accomodations. The hotel is surrounded by a huge garden and has three swimming pools. This hotel would be an excellent location if you are traveling with small children. Also an ideal venue for garden style weddings which I was told occurs quite frequently. This iconic hotel has been through a lot over the years but it still maintains is claim to be the ONLY garden hotel in Cebu.
If you are looking for a quiet place to be in an almost resort atmosphere, this is a place to consider. Just make sure you book rooms that have been recently renovated.

Our room was tiny and smelly from the humidity. Everything was very old and used. Basic features like minibar or safety box were missing. Positive aspects: pool, garden, cleanliness. All in all too expensive for us, but maybe other rooms are better.

It's such a heart-warming experience staying in a cool & stress-free beautifully designed hotel with their mouth-watering foods that would definitely satisfy our appetite! The services were good enough to meet our expectations... We (Cherie & Michael) really appreciated our first visit there... Keep it up and God bless!

Old, renovated recently though.

Antique but clean.

Good location with Gaisano Shopping mall where you can find Chow King, many good restaurants incl. 2 Korean restaurants.

Surprisingly managed garden is sething to brag about most in this hotel.

Swimming pool and garden looks nice. Second floor standard room was affordable and clean but the bed and room size is too small for a couple with 1 child. It does not have a nice view as well. Food was not replenished during the buffet breakfast. Not much food choices. Don't book a standard room if you plan to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Don't book a standard room.
