We needed an overnight stay for an early morning flight out of Cebu. We were told about the Islands Stay by a friend.
My wife booked over the phone, but she might have been talking to Donwtown Cebu rather than Mactan as there was some confusion about our booking. Anyway, they found a room for us. It was an internal room with no windows. It was very basic with a standard double bed, small bedside table, TV on a small shelf on the wall. The bathroom was quite large by comparison.
One wall was bright lime green, the others white.The overall size of the room was only about 10 ft * 12 ft if that. Quite claustrophobic without any windows. I guess if we had asked we might have got another room, but as it was only the one night, we didn't bother.
There is no elevator, and wifi was quite weak in our 2nd floor room. Cold water was available for a cost from a small fridge in the lobby.
We ate downstairs in the pork specialist restaurant, quite acceptable. The advertising sign features Anthony Bourdain saying it is the best pork ever. Don't know about that. There are plenty of eating options in the near vicinity.
No breakfast was offered, so we had something at the airport. A taxi was waiting outside at 5am, it was about PHP70 to the airport.
In summary, plain, cheap and close to Mactan airport. We paid about PHP1400/night.
