Hilton Cebu Resort & Spa

$202 – $2,144

Located on a (tiny) man-made private beach, the property is within 500 metres of the Mactan Shangri-la Hotel. Located 15 minutes from airport. Don’t think for one minute that you are coming to a resort with rolling grounds. The Hilton is literally built on a coin… Three huge – ghastly pink – high rise buildings sprouting up like Jack’s beanstalk on a four hectares of land. We believe the owner must have a fetish for pink; even their cars are pink! Given the high-rise nature of the buildings; the postage-stamp land size is dwarfed by gross over development. Not a good model for anyone interested in good planning.

This pastel-pink colored hotel is ok for very brief stays (1-2 days), any longer and you will be climbing the hotel’s fast closing in walls. Once you have exhausted the hotel’s food outlets you will be hoping it’s check-out time. There is not much to be seen outside the small compound either.

Standard rooms (30 sq/mtrs.) $202 per night. One Bedroom suite (42 sq/mtrs) $405. The Two Bedroom Ocean Suite (89 sq/mtrs.) is $882 per night. The biggest room in the house is the Presidential Suite (127sq/mtrs.) $2,230 per night.

Breakfast is extra $22. Lunch Buffet $20, Dinner Buffet $20. They also have al-a-carte options. Their signature restaurant is Manny O’s, which is located in a rotunda style building approximately 50 meters from the beach at the end of a pier. Superb views and some interesting wines. One of their self-proclaimed favorite dishes; is the “Kobe Beef Burger”. Yes, this little baby, priced at USD40 (more than a weeks salary if your a local) and various cuts of Waygu Steak priced at USD60 upwards, will knock your wallet into shape, faster than an Ali punch in his prime! Internet per day is $20.

If you are bored and need to get out of hotels limited food outlets and restricted size; go to Marina Mall near the airport. You will find lots of great choices for restaurants at very reasonable costs, a taxi will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes. Other (closer) options closer options (expensive) include the nearby Abaca (Western), Kaishu (Japanese) or Shangri-La’s restaurants. Anyway our vote is their are much better options so keep searching our listings.
