The Bellavista in in a very good location with free pick ups from Cebu airport. It was moderately priced for a hotel in a city (£33 a night), with easy access and with a restaurant and swimming pool. Breakfast was included and was adequate with a reasonable choice although they ran out of several items and the staff had to be reminded to replace them. They also supplied us with a packed breakfast to enable a 4 am departure which was gratefully appreciated. There is a rooftop swimming pool which was quite nice for a break from the stuffiness of the city although the view on the houses down below wasn’t particularly picturesque.
Rooms were very dark, worn but functional, the beds were quite comfortable and the bedding and towels looked clean and in reasonable condition. There was also a safe in the room. It is just down the road from the Mall which although not huge is useful if you need to pick up any items. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The internet was only available in the reception area and was reasonably quick once you got connected.More
