“Sloppy renovations = ants and bugs”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2011

I stayed in a large room. The price was very good (950PHP = $23) and the hotel is brand new. The problem is that the walls are riddled with holes. I have never seen such a sloppy renovation job in my life. Naturally, ants and bugs have colonized these spaces. As is usually the case in the tropics, some ants are not your petite and polite European ants - they are large, scary and love human skin! There is a mini kitchen with only a sink and empty cabinets. It serves no purpose besides providing more holes for the ants. The shower and toilet are good.The air conditioner is noisy and there is only a thin white curtain that doesn't block sunlight. The location is also odd. It is on a main avenue and the only attraction is a mini shopping centre with a supermarket and some restaurants. I don't recommend this branch of Island Stay. I moved to the uptown branch of the same chain in Cebu City and it was much better!

Hi, its Joe, i stayed in your hotel last Sept. At first I thought the price is too high but when the front office guy showed me the rooms and told the amenities, dude its fantastic even no breakfast included. Mall and coffee shop is just walking distance and the airport is near from the hotel also. Rooms are very new and hip, colors are very nice too. great concept, staff are very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Got some friends coming from the State every other months. I will surely recommend this to them. They should experienced it.

Very big room that house 2 double bed and still plenty of space to move around. Everything is new, simple and clean. The water pressure is strong. Free WiFi and cable LCD TV in the room. You may leave the air-con or charger on when you leave the room as the electric power is always available. This hotel has only 2 storey during my stay but heard from one stuff that other new room coming soon at the main building above the reception counter. The problem of the room was that the window can be see through at both side of glass, if you didn't lower down the curtain, any passer-by can view into your room. No breakfast. Very near to Mactan Marina mall and the airport.

As a Cebu regular (i live here part time) I have the chance to try different places during my visits. My girlfriend and I decided to try out Islands Stay. All I can say is the price is right! The rooms are very clean and I would hifghly reccomend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay. I do wish they had a restaurant but there are many choices near by.

Very near the Mactan airport. Respectful staff. Up to date appliances. Super clean and spacious room. Cool design. Strong wifi. What more could one ask for?
