Not sure that the Lonely Planet were playing at, making this their "Top Pick" but Kukuk's Nest is absolutely vile.

It's cheap - yes, but there is much better accommodation available for less in Cebu.

The rooms are dark - probably for the best as they are completely filthy and infested. No mosquito nets, insects everywhere, rat infestation (one of the little gits chewed a hole through my backpack!), sheets are dirty and have holes chewed in them. The shared bathroom is filthy and falling apart, oh, and there's no running water in the mornings either. And the wifi doesn't work either (although admittedly the other problems took my mind off the lack of wifi)

For an experience like this I'd expect to pay 100 pesos per night, not 400. It's an absolute joke. My skin's crawling just thinking about the place. There are plenty of other options out there, much nicer and cheaper also. Do yourself a favour and stay far far away from this sh1thole. ...

... baggage after weight issues and re weighing all of out bags at least 3 times. Then our connecting flight was delayed by 4hrs. Awesome.... Finally got Cebu and got taken straight to dinner where 22 pastors and their families were waiting to eat with us......some amazing people there. Extremely friendly. Had some really nice food before heading back to the hotel. Must sleep early start ...

One Night in Cebu

... meet to go out to a great Filipino restaurant not too far away. A few of us order all different dishes and share them all to get the most out of the meal, but, as often with a bigger group, you can have some problems with the food timing and food even coming out, if ever. Some of us never received the food they ordered, some dishes came out wrong, and some took forever, and nothing ever comes out at the same time like it does in a Canadian restaurant. And then there's ...

... t think it was as good as the other dives, but I’m not a pro like her so I was easily impressed to see hundreds of fish all around me! In the evening we had a massage on the beach (not quite the relaxing experience I had imagined, but very enjoyable) and wandered down the beach trying to decide where to eat as there was such a huge choice. In the end we were tempted by a parrot fish (we’d seen lots of these during while we were diving and were curious to find out ...

... worker-bees sweeping the sides of the streets. Our hotel Parklane International was quite nice although the pool is under construction. It served up a very nice free buffet breakfast and although there was a tour desk on site they were never very helpful. We were situation close to Ayala Mall which was very modern and the largest in Cebu. It had terraces on three levels around ...

... and lemonade with orange sugar around the rim. It went down a treat and 100 pesos went to VSO! The outpost bar even gave us ten percent commission on all the beer that was sold on the evening. We dont have the final total as of yet. We estimate it as 20,000 pesos in all for a nights work. With 67 pesos to the pound means we made around 300 pound on drinks. 2,990 pound all for the night organized.
This Sunday past was the last community ...
