Staycation in Cebu


Summer is not yet over, we still have one week before classes resume. I wish I can extend summer because honestly, I’m not yet ready for school year 2016-2017. I bought books last month but until now, it is not yet covered. I still have no name stickers for the books, notebooks and other supplies. For sure, magcram ako niya before June 13. Hehehe! Anyway, yun na lang naman kulang.

Before summer vacation ends, I want to share the hotels and resorts that we have tried in Cebu. So if you are planning to go to Cebu or you live in Cebu and looking for quick getaway, you can choose from the following. 

1. Fuente Oro Business Suites 

If you are looking for a budget hotel then reserve a room in Fuente Oro Business Suites. We’ve stayed here in 2011, the room was very basic but it is ok for us. 

If you are a budget traveler and looking for cheap accommodation, this hotel is for you. The price is budget friendly and it includes free breakfast for two persons already. What I like in this hotel is the location, it is very accessible and we can ride jeep just outside the hotel. 

2. Cebu City Marriott Hotel 

This is a luxury hotel in Cebu city that is just beside Ayala Center Cebu . You can save money because you can just walk to the mall if you want to eat or buy snacks and drinks at the supermarket. During our stay, my son enjoyed his time in their pool. 



The room is big that fits two double bed and the bathroom has a bathtub too. Complimentary water and toiletries are replenished every day.

3. Cebu Parklane International Hotel 

This hotel is also near Ayala Center Cebu but it would be a long walk. The hotel has different restaurants but if you want to save money, don't worry because there are restaurants near the hotel. 



The price of the hotel is very reasonable and it offers free buffet breakfast at Manuel’s restaurant. It has a pool too that we haven’t tried. The room is not that big but the bathroom has a bathtub.

4. Crimson Mactan Resort and Spa 

If you don’t want to go to Bantayan Island or Sumilon Island but you wanted to experience beach and pool then go to Mactan. There are so many luxury hotels and resorts there including Crimson Mactan Resort and Spa



We had a great time in this resort especially in their CrimZone because my son enjoyed the different activities like figurine painting, bracelet making, face painting and Amazing Kid’s Race.

5. Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa



This is another luxury resort in Mactan that we have visited but only for a day trip. They have pool, beach, play area, sauna and gym . Overall, we were satisfied with the service, facilities and amenities, If we have an extra budget I will consider this for an overnight stay.

    1. Maybe because you live in Cebu so you prefer to explore other places. You can do staycation, it is a fun experience. :)

  4. Shangri-la Mactan... We almost got to stay here, but I think my dad got a bit too overwhelmed with the price hahahaha! So we opted to stay in another hotel that's nearer to where my sister was training for the Mathematics Trainer's Guild... It's been around 8 years since that time we went to Cebu, and if ever I get the chance to come back here I would definitely try out Fuente Oro.. :)

  6. My husband worked in Shangri-La Cebu before and all he would tell me is that the place is amazing and he's hoping he could take me there in the future as well. :)

  11. Cebu is one of the places I enjoy to visit again and again. Aside from amiable people, I love their Sutokil. And yes, Marriot, Parklane, and Shangri-la are some of my preferred temporary house for that stay.

  13. Haven't stayed on the places you mentioned above but have been to Cebu thrice already. I'm more of a B&B person before kasi always on the go naman but for staycations the places you mentioned are perfect!

  15. I love Shang Mactan! It's great for family! Last time we went there, my son was just a few months old so he didn't really get to consciously appreciate what the property has to offer. So we'll bring him again soon!

    1. My son was not able to play in their play area when we there too so we have reason to go back if budget permits.

  16. I haven't tried any hotels when we visited cebu several yrs ago. We are in group, so they look for something more affordable like rooms. But these are a great list for some who have an extra budget.
