I booked this place online before arriving in Cebu, sight unseen. Very friendly. I got in at Oh Dark Hundred, leaving Hong Kong on a flight to Cebu overnight.
Even through Checking wasn't until 2pm, Checkout for the rooms being 12 noon and my room for the night being still occupied when I rolled up at 7am, I was able to check my suitcase into their secure storeroom and go out on the streets and hoof it around until noon and then check in early.
During my stay I found the staff friendly and very helpful, the rooms were clean and well maintained and the air conditioning was a godsend.
I would happily reccommend this to any other travellers to Ceby City.

And if there's a nation where my look fits in best - there it is!

Doble ingat kami sa aming pagbaba dahil madulas ang mga bato, ngunit hindi ako nakaligtas, nadulas nga ako! nakakahiya man, ngunit wala akong nagawa dahil sa pantapak ng suot ko, hindi ito makapit sa batuhan, kaya hindi nakapagtatakang madulas ako.
Matapos ang aming pangalawang beses na pag ligo (una sa Dagat), ...

We stopped to see the Tarsiers which are the smallest primates, no bigger than the palm of your hand. They were very cute with their big eyes. They can do a 180 in both directions with their heads. There are about 1000 left of these endangered species. Being nocturnal, we looked one ...
... my mom bought one assorted and one mint flavored :) good thing there was also Rose Pharmacy in SM so we also decided to buy Top Gel Soap for Uncle Nelson's daughter again. But since she said it was really effective in removing dark spots and is only available here in Cebu, we decided to buy for ourselves too.
Since my friends kept telling me to try La Marea's warm brownie cup w/ ice cream, we endured 1 1/2 hours ...
