I would not say that Cebu is one of the "places you should go before I die." The city is not very pretty or pleasant; neither the neighborhood around the hotel. But if you go to Cebu, definitely Crimson hotel is the place to stay.
I use to travel a lot and I can say that the service at this hotel is one of the best I have ever experienced. Just to have an idea about how much they care, imagine you in the sauna and someone knocks on the door, just bring you a glass of water and refreshing towels. Actually the courtesy and care they have with the guests is exceptional, in all sectors of the hotel.
It is not a huge hotel and being so, you have the advantage of having everything around you; no huge distances to the beach, swimming pool or restaurants. But do not be fooled by the size as the hotel offers a wonderful infrastructure, which provides a lot of things to do during your stay.
The rooms are all nice and if you go to the top of the accommodation you will be in an exceptional “private villa”.
The restaurants are very good, the breakfast is fantastic.
The spa has it all. Sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and it’s own swiming pool. Many types of massage are offered and the price (unlike most spas) is quite reasonable.
If you are looking for a “paradisiac” beach, this is not your place. Because the beach is small, man-made. But if this is not a problem for you, the beach is really nice, with a warm and crystalline water.
Although I was not impressed with Cebu, I eventually would consider returning there because of the hotel.
