“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

My stay here was excellent, the staff was great, they we very helpful with any questions you may have. The FREE Buffet Breakfast was very good, loved the scrambled eggs and bacon.

Free shuttle to and from the airport, just notify them of your arrival. It is part of the larger hotel next door, with use of the swimming pool and gym

TIP: When riding in a taxi be sure you get the meter rate, the drivers will overcharge expats. White taxis are the best rate wise.

Handy budget hotel for an overnight stay close to airport with a shuttle service. Rooms small, outdated, a little smelly/stuffy and not the cleanest. Bad sound proofing and a few bugs in the room. For a budget option can still go next door to the more expensive sister hotel the Bellavista and use pool and Wifi etc. Buffet breakfast included is served at hotel next door and is reasonable although be warned, the fake juice is sickly sweet. Ok for a night if not expecting much.

Pleasant enough room, although why they had to opaque the window is a mystery. Not much place to eat in the vicinity, but the restaurant in the adjoining BellaVista was satisfactory, if not brilliant. What makes this a good deal is use of the BellaVista's rooftop pool and the free shuttle to the airport. Wouldn't stay here more than a night, but If you've just flown in or are flying out in the morning it's a good place.

Hotel Cesario's advantage is its close proximity to the Mactan airport..... It had decent rooms and cheap nightly rates good for overnight stay. however, I woke up with bites on both my arms, which I later confirmed were bed bug bites . I'm still getting over them and it's been almost 10 days.
If they would just check their beds ,and rid of these, I would return. until then, will skip and find another similarly convenient accommodation.

Room Tip: There's nothing , no restos close by..... About all it's good for is an overnight stay for s...

to start with its a budget hotel. we booked through hotels.com. this was my first time in a budget hotel so i was pretty apprehensive. however the experience was very good. i think this hotel provides a lot more than whwt you pay...

free airport pick and drop.

location: very near to the airport. jeepneys and cabs are easily available from the hotels doorstep making it easy to commute to cebu city. cebu yacht club and marina mall nearby. lots of eateries nearby.

breakfast: free in the 1565 cafe. nice ambience with wide array of menu. loved the food. they even packed our brekkie when we had to leave for bohol early in the morning. however not much option for pure vegetarians...bread, milk, cornflakes and rice.

outdoor pool and jacuzzi: rooftop pool has amazing view. the mactan channel on three sides with the new mactan bridge on right. you can see a panoramic view of cebu island. the poolside restraunt provides tasty food. we had yummy chicken fingers and springrolls with an amazing view of the city..

room: clean, dimly lit though with all amenities. also there was the holy bible. slightly damp because it was raining heavily.

bathroom: very small but with running hot and cold water. toiletries replenished daily.

staff: very sweet and polite. they gave us early check in without even asking for it. really impressed with the sweetness of staff. check in and check out was a breeze.
