TravelPod's Snapshot

The Cebu Marine Beach Resort, a small 26 room resort in Mactan, offers guests a relaxing, enjoyable experience at affordable rates. The resort is situated quite a ways from the airport, so a taxi ride or a car rental is necessary to reach it. Guests who go to Cebu Marine looking for a quiet retreat near sandy beaches, but away from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area, leave feeling rejuvenated and satisfied.

Former guests indicated that the rooms were on the small side and outdated when compared to nearby hotels, but the cheaper rates and a tasty breakfast made up for the lack of space and any modernity lost. The resort's design has a charming Filipino feel that may appeal to those interested in immersing themselves in local culture. The Cebu Marine Beach Resort offers guests plenty of amenities, such as a pool and conference room, as well as nearby snorkeling adventures. The resort Dive Shop can help arrange your outing.

The hotel takes pride in the community and culture, as evidenced by the many special local touches. The gift shop, for example, sells handcrafted souvenirs made from indigenous materials, while the resort restaurant's menu is filled with Filipino offerings. Some guests weren't thrilled about the prices of the food compared to the portions, but it's tasty all the same.

While this may be an ideal getaway for couples looking for privacy or anyone who enjoys peace and quiet, others may find the isolation off-putting as the resort isn't centrally located. To combat the resort's remoteness, guests can take a car into the city for more dining or shopping options. While the Cebu Marine Beach Resort may not be luxurious by most people's standards, travelers on a budget will appreciate its lower rates in exchange for a decent stay right on the beach.

        ... There was a very small boy with a bad head wound. We prayed for Him, but he was very shy and did not want to come close. Another boy (3ish) had a head wound. Many of the kids gathered around and we layed hands on him and prayed for him. What a powerful experience. I believe God touched Him, but He was too shy to say. It was time to go. With an trail of small children we left and headed to a courtyard where we knew kids would be hanging out after school. I noticed ...

        ... to think it doesn't, but its respectful. In other words, nobody says anything but you know people have their preferences and independent thoughts...nothing wrong with that!

Alas, the guard was totally focused and I had no chance. I did try different angles, walked around twice hoping he would get distracted, but no, he was 100% focused. I'm glad I got to see them, but sorry I cannot share them with you at home.

        ... what I wanted Asia to be for me, but I so desperately wanted to be sharing it with Isabelle. We had spoken about traveling so much and it just wasn't the same without her to share the experiences with. I learnt at that moment in time I had been fantasying about seeing all these places in Asia and trying all sorts of new things, when I should have been more focused on actually sharing that moment with her. It was the first time I felt incredibly down about not being with Izzie in 4 ...
