I’ve been reading reviews online so mas prefer nga namin yung two resorts, fully booked nga lang. So I gave up and let my husband book our hotel in Cebu. My only request is I want an overnight stay in Crimson Mactan Resort and Spa because that is on my bucket list.
Few days before our trip, I asked my husband where we are going to stay? Siya na daw bahala. Ok fine, two days before our departure, we still have no accommodation but my husband already called, inquired and reserved in three hotels for our Cebu trip. I was glad that everything was confirmed before our flight.
Cebu City Marriott Hotel
Five years ago, we stayed in Fuente Oro Business Suites, I chose this because it is an affordable hotel and we just really need a place to sleep since we will be out the whole day for our Cebu City Tour. We stayed there just for one night so I was really excited when my husband booked in Marriott Hotel because it is one of the luxury hotels.

From airport, we just rode taxi going to the hotel. The traffic was bad because there is going construction in Marcelo Fernan Bridge. At that time, four time pa namatayan ng makina yung taxi namin. Feeling ko di na kami aabot ng hotel, lol.
The security in the hotel is very strict, it is like going to the airport where they asked the taxi driver’s ID and checked the vehicle. They also have baggage and body scanner just like in The Manila Hotel. The lobby was not grand but of course better than other hotels.
My husband booked a room with King Sized bed but when we got there we were advised that it was not available. After that we went to our room, you need the keycard in order to use the elevator.
Let us have a room tour.
The bathroom has bath tub and rainshower.
Look at the toiletries and freebies, there are mouthwash, liquid hand soap, polishing shoe mitt, scrunchie (hair band), nail file and sewing kit which is not common in other hotels.
We just left our things in the room and off we went to Ayala Mall, it is just at the back of the building as in tatlong tumbling lang. Hehehe! Big savings in transportation because we can eat breakfast, lunch or dinner in the mall.

I wish they have playroom so we can have another activity aside from the swimming pool.
1. The room and bed size are good for a family of four. Bed and pillows are very comfortable.
2. Service is good. They clean the room and replenish the toiletries and complimentary water every day.
3. I love the location because it is very near Ayala Mall.
1. No bidet in the bathroom.
2. I wish they have playroom for kids.
All in all, we had a good stay in Cebu City Marriott Hotel, I cannot comment on their food since we only booked "room only" and we did not order anything in their restaurant. Like I said, tabi lang siya ng Ayala Mall.

Tip: If you are Marriott Rewards Member, use it so you can have the best rate. My husband forgot that he has Marriott Rewards card so we got a different rate but we present it upon arrival for points.
If you are going to stay for several days, ask if they could offer a discount. They gave us 10% discount for our three nights stay.
