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.

We got on the boat and found our seats, they were fairly comfy and we chilled out for a few hours. When we got to Cebu, we got a taxi to our hostel (Le Village) and checked in.

But we couldn't yet. We patience carried on the training. Same time finally picking up the FSL ...
... we wasn't with each other for long we still had a lot of fun and a really good laugh. After spending a nice time with Roxanne I caught the jeepney back to my hostel to quickly pick up my luggage and head to the port with the girls. Just before boarding the ferry we met a nice Brazilian girl called Lara. She was heading to Boracay as well so she hung around us for the ferry journey. The ferry itself was actually pretty decent. Wasn't expecting it to be like that at all. I'm not ...
... of palm and papaya trees and past a small hut, on which it said the entry fee; 10 pesos per person! The map, we had obtained from one of the lovely staff at the resort, was hand drawn so it meant some challenge in finding the correct spot but once we found the hut we knew we were close. There was no one there so in typical Philippino tradition, if there is no one to collect the money, you don't pay! Just then an elderly gentleman with no shirt and a huge machete tied around ...
... made more atmospheric by the tone
deaf waiter's booming singing. After a delightful purchase -
flannels to wipe the top layer of sweat off when we are walking -
we wandered back to the hotel.
and unable to engage with anyone other than to be hassled or begged
from, we decided to take the easy option and to spend the day in the
tourist bubble of the Ayala. This time we managed to stay ...
