“Good for budget minded.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is a nice but basic hotel by the Cebu Airport. Clean but nothing special except the ability to use the restaurant and pool at the adjoining more upscale hotel next door. It's on the lines of a nice Motel 6. When we arrived the air con was out due to a mandatory black out. Rooms were stifling. The management was kind enough to let us upgrade to the adjoining Bellavista hotel which was running air con on generators. We give them big props for letting us make the move without fee penalties.

Great value considering the proximity to the airport and the quality of their rooms and services. Free transfer to and from Airport, free breakfast and nice swimming pool and spa which are also free to use.

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 Rooms small, outdated, a little smelly/stuffy and not the cleanest.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...
