CEBU WATERFRONT HOTEL & CASINO Nov 22, 2008
The Cebu Waterfront Hotel is a very prominent landmark in Cebu City and is very easy to find. Just mention to the taxi driver that you want to go to the Waterfront Hotel and he will bring you right there. It is the one and only biggest five star hotel in the area. It is also one of the largest hotels in the Philippines. The huge, white, Las Vegas style hotel building can be easily spotted in the city skyline.

The rate would be quite pricey for locals who can't afford and for other budget travelers like me : USD$90 & up (PHP4200 & up). I just happen to be able to stay here because whenever our office in Makati would send me to Cebu for business trips, this is where they book my accommodation as they have a negotiated corporate rate. I'm doing this review for the sake of those who can afford and for general info purpose. Well, the place has all the amenities of a 5-star hotel, including a fitness center, spa, bars, duty-free shops,free wi-fi, plus the added popular casino and a huge convention center where exhibits, concerts, and events are held. The rooms are good & clean. Service from the staff is just average. The location is within 5-15 minutes by taxi to the malls, tourist sites, business centers, restaurants within the city. This hotel has another branch right across the airport at Mactan Island. It's called the Cebu Waterfront Airport Hotel. It is smaller, also has a casino, but it's far from the city center. The Waterfront Airport Hotel would be convenient if you would be staying at Mactan Island.

There are some fine dining restaurants in the hotel if you wish to bring your VIP clients for exclusive business meetings or if you want to enjoy lunch or dinner with a special someone. There is the Treff Oyster Bar, La Gondola Cafe Uno, Tin Gao(my fave),Port Restaurant(where I eat lechon de Cebu), etc. I'm not impressed with the boutiques. There is sufficient and convenient parking space at the right wing of the building. So if you're looking for a 4-5 star place to stay, I could safely recommend this hotel for now.
