I have previously visited Cebu in 2007 where I stayed at a three-star hotel so when I learned that the Singelresor group would be staying at this five-star hotel for two nights, I was really excited. This is definitely one of the best choices if you are looking for a luxury hotel in Cebu. The room I got was very nice, the food in the restaurant where we had our breakfast was simply exceptional, and the staff were just very helpful and friendly. The complimentary wifi was a big plus and made it possible for me to work while on holiday (as it is always the case). The location may not be that close to the city center but nevertheless, one could always take a taxi or their shuttle service. Overall, a very nice hotel and which I highly recommend when in Cebu City.
