We wanted to spend one day in Cebu on our way home from Malapascua. Green Gates offered the best combination of position and price.
When we arrived we were offered an upgrade to the MES for PHP2500. We negotiated it down to PHP2200.
The room was large an comfortable with aircon. The cupboard to hang clothes is locked because some previous guest lost the key and, although there is a bath, the plumbing has been rigged so you can only shower (after two weeks of cold showers I really wanted to have a nice bath).
The bed was comfy and we slept well despite a party across the road (not the norm).
Breakfast was eggs and bacon with coffee served at our leisure.
Lovely pool and garden and the resident mynah bird is quite talkative and entertaining.
I'm sorry I didn't eat more there but we wanted to explore the city.
The pool is cool and relaxing.
Free wifi with good connection.
Green Gates did the trick and I'd recommend it.
The area is not exactly location, location, location, but you are surrounded by high walls and ample security so it becomes a bit of an oasis.
Taxi to the Ayala shopping mall is about PHP300 in aircon taxi and takes about 40mins in heavy traffic. Airport is about 10 mins away.
