Hotel Cesario
Ranked #27 of 32 Hotels in Lapu Lapu
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Hotel Cesario is a 5mins drive away from the airport without any traffic of course. I've stayed there for a night due to my early flight the next day at 6am. I would not recommend it if you're planning to stay long there as the room was kind of stuffy even though with the A/C and fan on. The toilet is really and I meant, really small but the bedroom was big. It sure needs a refurbishment as it seems kind of old.

However, it is good for a night stay as they provide FREE transportation to the airport even at 3am in the morning!

Food wise, if you're not keen on eating in the hotel... there's a supermarket on your right as you exit from Hotel Cesario. It is however a 10-15mins walk. Anything, just ask the reception. They are really friendly and helpful.

Hotel is located beside to Bella Vista hotel. Their breakfast, services and pool are on the other side (Bella Vista). We did not stay in the Cesario, but upgraded to Bella Vista, which was worth it. Upgrading was so easy that we suspect that their marketing strategy is to sell a cheap room to Cesario and when the guests see their room, they want to upgrade.

But still location is excellent if You are traveling next day from Cebu-Mactan airport. Free shuttle service to airport.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Bella Vista.

We used this hotel last year and this year before moving on to Malapascua. Last year it served its purpose. Not the best of rooms but breakfast was very good and staff were very nice. This year we felt it was badly in need of reburbishment. The bathroom is small and badly laid out yet the bedroom is very big. Easily re-arranged. The room smelt musty and frankly we would not have stayed more than one night. Not an enjoyable stay although the breakfast is very good and there is free wifi in the dining room/reception. I am sure there are much better options available until they upgrade their rooms.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel!

I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place to stay just before/after a flight.

The shuttle service is excellent, even when you need to get to the airport at 4am.

The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the added extra of the pool from the next door hotel is a definite bonus.
Would definitely recommend.

we chose this hotel as it is close to cebu airport and we were only stayong overnight. it was recommended in the lonely planet.
i booked it online with agoda on the morning of our arrival and paid inadvance in full. unfortunately when we arrived we were told my the receptionist that the hotel was full and they had no record of our booking. she offered no alternative, upgrade or apology. she did not even attempt to help us or speak to her manager. she told us "this is not my problem". despite explaining multiple times that i had paid in advance her customer service was appaling and she expected us to just leave the hotel without complaint.
we refused to leave the hotel and demanded to see the manager. after waiting in reception for nealry 45mins we were then shown to a twin room (we were on our honeymoon but by that point didnt care that it was not a double). no apology was given. the rooms are really dated but clean.
on a positive note there is a rooftop pool at the sister hotel and the views are great. the buffet breakfast was pretty good and included in the room price. location wise it is
it is only a short drive from the airport.
there are not many places to eat nearby, although we walked for about 10-15 mins down the road and discovered a brilliant little japanese restaurant called daruba.
it was a disappointing experience mainly because of the customer service on arrival.

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.
