The location is nice, not far from the port which is how we arrived and not that far from the airport either. The room is spacious and modern although I had an initial concern about the bed size. I requested our travel agent to arrange a minimum queen sized bed for the bf and me and the bed in the Superior Room is absolutely not a queen, though the staff said it is. Looks like beds sizes for single, queen, double or the 'matrimonial' are inconsistent so if you are tall or big it is important to check. Our room had 2 single beds so we asked them to connect them for us to have a 'bigger' bed. We were at the 10th floor and had a good view of the city, both day and night. Fixtures and bathroom are modern. Buffet breakfast which is included in our package is ok. Since this is my first arranged tour with an agent I didn't think of it as much but for the next leg of our trip I researched the hotels we were booked with for reviews. I am already at the hotel when I looked it up online and it seemed decent.
Have at least one dinner or late night drink at the rooftop bar, it is a really nice location and view. If you book through a travel agent the airport/ seaport pickup is not refundable even if you had other arrangements or misunderstandings with the agent. It is a comfortable place to rest after spending the whole day exploring Cebu, which is what we did for the 3 days we were here.We had day 1-city/historical tour and zipline 1, day 2-island hopping and snorkeling, day 3- mountain and hill tour and zipline 2. It was relatively pleasant.
