My stay at the Waterfront Hotel was nice. The service was excellent the room was very spacious with seperate lounge, bath, and bedrooms. It is old style but effective, in fact i had one of my best night sleeps in years. The downfall for this Hotel is the breakfast. It promises much but is sadly lacking. Hot food is amost cold with little choice and the pastry section is lifeless. The chef should visit the Dusit Thani in Manila and take notes.

This hotel is located stone's throw away from the mactan airport. Despite the short distance, this hotel offers free shuttle to the airport. So, ask for it if you have big luggages. Rooms are neat and clean. Swimming pool looked also nice.

Room Tip: Book directly to Waterfront Hotel website. Its own site offers the best rate including all the tax f...

At walking distance from the airport. Room infrastructure a bit old (still a CRT TV, which started to smell burnt when switched on, one of the ceiling reading lights fell down, could not use the safe, as it did not close), but clean and good size, also good size bathroom.
Laundry did for some reason not deliver my shirts folded, but on hanger, despite the request for "folded". They also showed up with an extra pair of socks and let me pick mine.
Pool is nice, but no locker rooms available.
I had asked (and got) a non-smoking room, so no complaints about that.

We stayed at the Waterfront Airport hotel on several occasions during a three week vacation to Cebu. With it's location, literally across the street from the airport, it's so easy to stay there before or after flights.

The lobby of the Waterfront Airport is much smaller than the Waterfront Cebu City, but it also comes off as warmer and more inviting. On Friday (or maybe it was Saturday) nights, they have a lounge singer performing in the Lobby Lounge, who was actually very entertaining.

The rooms are bigger than the downtown branch with huge bathrooms. My biggest complaint about this hotel is the toilets. They take forever to flush, and then you may have to flush them three times to clear the bowl. Everything else about the room was quite nice.

There are fewer restaurants in the Airport hotel than the City hotel, but the quality is the same. Pretty much what you would expect at a mid-priced hotel. The breakfast buffet is slightly smaller, but much more relaxed than at the City hotel.

The staff was very well trained, but perhaps not quite so welcoming as the Cebu City Waterfront. Still, they weren't bad at all...it's just the staff at Cebu City were spectacular.

We won't hesitate to stay here again any time we need to be near the airport or in reach of Mactan destinations. It's worth mentioning again, the rooms are substantially bigger than the Cebu City Waterfront, they're also a bit cheaper. The same applies to the restaurants, which tend to be ten or fifteen pesos less expensive for the same menu items.

Room Tip: Non smoking rooms are on the second and fifth floors. We found that the fifth floor rooms were a bit...

Great for early departure or evening arrival as hotel is situated just across the terminal. Difficult to get across the main road due to lack of sign if you are pushing a lot of dive luggage.
Hotel is fine ,room neet and tidy, considering cost of the rooms are higher then average , I would say it is par for the price.
If you need to eat, I would eat at the lobby and not in the cafe in the casino! The casino is basically rows of slot machines, smoky and the ' cafe' needs to be seen to be believed! Not inviting at all, not clean, we actually found a large chicken bone from the last meal tucked in among the grubby pages within the menu. A first for us , I have to say, we walked out of the casino to eat in the lobby. You can also get free Wifi if you eat there.
Overall it is not a destination hotel, airport hotels are for travellers passing through, and it does this job admirably.

Stayed 2 nights here in April, and needed to at the venue for business.

Good - Rooms older but clean, Location, Check in and out, and the size of the rooms.

Bad - Food was not good, and neither was the restaurant service. The shops downstairs selling fake designer goods,

Overall its ok for a night or two.

Room Tip: Book a suite, not much difference in the price.
