If you’re wondering if this place has a lot of local flair to offer, they don’t. If you’re expecting the same cheerfulness that usually characterizes the Cebuano, then prepared to be disappointed. If you’re looking forward of seeing a lot of local Filipino or Cebuano on this place, then you’ll be upset to see more Koreans than locals. If you’ll ask me if my experience on this place was memorable, I’ll say nope.
Yes, everything I expected on a modern hotel facilities were there. There were enough swimming pools to choose from including the themed pool and their very narrow beach. Their restaurant offers lavished food and sweet. But to be honest, I was not impressed at all.
During my stay in Cebu, I have been to small hotels, pension house and known hotel and I was delighted to be served by the characters that well defines the Cebuano which was completely missing on this Hotel. Would it be so hard to hire a Cebuano as a receptionist instead of a Korean who can’t properly talk in English or even smile to its client?
This place is such a pity that they have to invest and develop a splendid place but failed terribly to incorporate what the Filipinos are known for. Going to this place is like going to Paris without the Eiffel Tower or Louvre museum. It’s like going to New York without the Statue of Liberty or perhaps going to China without the Great Wall. Have I known what to expect and see on this place then I should have been somewhere else.
