My stay at Crimson resort was due to a business trip.
I've been to Crimson for 6 weeks (2 + 4).
During this time I have enjoyed all the services offered.
I would like to recommend the Crimson Resort Fitness Center, the Spectacular Aum spa, private beach and magnificent Tempo Restaurant.
After a long stay in a wonderful place I have to add the high level of professionalism of its employees, for example, the staff of Tempo Lounge, Mr.Antonio, Mr.Emmanuelle, Mrs.Grace ...

Any kind of problem or issue during my stay was always resolved quickly by Mrs.Madelaine Aguas (Guest Services Officer).

Many Thanks Mrs.Madelaine for your attention, perseverance and professionalism in getting an excellent stay.

Rooms were tastefully designed. Food especially in the buffet restaurant was super worth your money. They are delicious and fresh. Staff are helpful and courteous, you would really feel you're a VIP. Pool areas and restrooms are clean. Beach front is also clean though we were not able to enjoy it due to the high tide. Hawaiian and poi dancers were the chosen entertainment we witnessed on our stay and we enjoyed it. Would want to come back to this hotel again the next time we visit Cebu.

I worked in Angeles, Philippines for a week and decided to visit Cebu before leaving the Philippines. My stay at the Crimson was fabulous, mainly due to John, a lifeguard at the Crimson. I had never snorkeled before and am a bit afraid of the water. Jemal was teriffic in helping me arrange an island tour that included snorkeling. John, the lifeguard, accompanied me and a Japanese family of three on the tour. I was nervous but John was a great teacher. Words can't even describe how magical the life is under the water. I still can't believe how fabulous it was. Best of all, I felt safe all the time. John accompanied me at all times. He not only watched out for me, he helped me see things I might have missed. I'm still awestruck at what I saw.

In addition to John and the very gracious hard-working Jemal, the rest of the staff was terrific. I'm now convinced that the people of the Philippines are the nicest people in the world!!

I also had one of the best massages ever by Analese (SP?) at the spa. She was fantastic!

We arrived early as we took the very first flight from Manila to Cebu. They facilitated our check-in quickly and we were able to enjoy the facilities right away. The buffet spread for breakfast was extensive. The pool, garden and beach front were also very nice. Had a cocktail during sunset and it was one of the highlights of the trip. We were sipping frozen margaritas and enjoying the sun go down. It was a perfect break which we hope to have some time soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the beach. Get a room on the 2f.

Arriving at Crimson, our check-in was efficient and personal, and the cool drink of tamarind and ginger a welcome pleasure. Driven to our deluxe garden room in a resort buggy was fun. The lush tropical gardens across the resort are beautiful, as is wandering the meandering pathways, especially when lit at night. For its number of guests (predominately Koreans) the pool area is rather small with an insufficient number of poolside lounge chairs. The beach swim area is also very small and rocky but, on the plus side, there are many lounge chairs beachside and there's a nearby bar for refreshments. We were only one table of very few to enjoy the evening Filipino, somewhat pricey, buffet and for an additional 300p per person were able to drink an unlimited amount. The breakfast buffet was a free for all, and tables changed occupancy quickly! Lots of Filipino day-pass groups had arrived and had started with the buffet obviously as we'd not seen any of these people the day before. Our deluxe garden room was comfortable with a delightfully large bathroom. The highlight of our stay was definitely the relaxing couples massage in Aum Spa. I've never before seen such a beautiful spa with an outdoor jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms, separate for male and females, and the spacious change rooms and corridors leading to its many massage rooms. It was a serene and relaxing atmosphere. The biggest negative of our stay, I suppose, was the absurd check-in (3.00pm) and check-out times (11.00 am). That said though, we arrived 1.5 hours early and were able to be accommodated almost immediately. Felt a bit rushed to leave our room by 11.00 next morning, but lobby check-out was again a personal service offered to all, and not a queue at a cashier desk. Decided to spend the day beachside while our luggage was taken care of. Overall, a memorable stay at Crimson with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff.

Me and my family (wife and three kids) stayed here last year so we can visit Oslob and swim with the whale sharks. I would love to go back to Cebu but maybe we'll try another hotel. The hotel is a bit pricey, but the good thing is the room we had was awesome. It's so luxurious but nothing else much to do when inside.

Room Tip: Always get a separate bed for your kids.
