best hotel in cebu

The best hotel in Cebu is difficult to find because there are so many incredible hotels in Cebu City its hard to choose one.  But here is our list of those that are among the best.  We chose them based on quality of staff, service, online reviews from actual guest and accommodations.
1. J Park Island Resort and Waterpark formerly Imperial Palace Cebu Waterpark is one of the most luxurious resorts in Cebu with a variety of amenities at 5 star quality.  The location is in Phil BXT Corp Tourism Economic Zone in Barangay Maribago, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

2. Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa is one of the best.  Based on my personal experience the food, the drinks and accommodation are top notch.  If you go, make sure you try the beach bar.  The have great drinks and a great view. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Shangri-La has a small beach area but I would say the customer service, cleanliness and landscape really makes up for it.  The management does an excellent job hiring great people to work there.

6. Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino is a 3 star hotel located at Lahug, Cebu City. The exterior needs better landscaping but you won’t be disappointed by the interior. The rooms are all carpeted. The customer service is fine, but could use some improvement. They should train and hire better staff who know about their jobs as some are not so attentive, or friendly.
