I’m German and I stayed in the IP already the second time on business Trip. There is not much negative to say – It was a bit annoying that there was no more late checkout after 3PM, also the Hotel was not fully booked. I was asked to pay a full day after 3PM.
Apart from that everything is close to perfect. Hotel staff is very very friendly, Pools are clean, but shallow. Guests are mostly Korean.
IP offers Airport transfer for 150P. You should consider that for Pickup when you arrive, as Airport taxis could cost more. In anyway insist that taxidrivers use the Meter, or leave the Taxi. Charges of 10x normal price for Newbies may be charged.
All of the Staff speak English quite well. Around the Hotel there are some restaurants, but for the better places you need to take a Taxi. ( cheap with Metering) I recommend Fish at Magelan Point, or Italian or Thai near the Airport road.
Ip got free Internet, wired in the room, WiFi around Lobby and Pool.
The Beach is sandy (at low tide) relatively small, but gets cleaned every Day by Hotel staff. Water in the beach is also shallow. You will see some fish if snorkelling. Divesites around Mactan are not really famous, but Ok for a few dives. Diving at outside Hotel you will get from 60euro up. 30 Jetski/Waverunner 1200P up. See kontiki beach beside the Hotel.
Inside Hotel everything is quite expensive. Last not least – Its got a fantastic Breakfast.
But whoever goes there must be able to ignore the extreme poverty around the Hotel, with hungry children beging for Money and Food.
