The Montebello hotel has a big swimming pool (and 2 kiddy pools) and a nice big garden that shields all the noise and pollution of the city. It's a nice place to relax in Cebu. The internet is not the most reliable. But what really disturbs me is that the hotel intentionally blocks POP, IMAP and Yahoo messenger access which is a nuisance if you access your mails with these protocols, e.g. via Outlook. I spoke to the IT manager and he set me up a temporary network that did not block these services. However, this network was only temporary and I could not access it in my room. The IT manager said that they block these protocols because some guests downloaded extensively in the past. Still, I cannot understand this policy as all hotels face the same problem and I was always able to access the email elsewhere. I hope that the internet policy will change after this review.
