Stay far away from that place, that is the best advice I can give !
We have booked a deluxe non smoker room : surprise... that room does not even exists. In the so called deluxe room, plenty of ashtrays were present.... how to call it "a non smoking" room then ????
There was no management, only a helper, who was friendly, but could not explain or give any information. After visiting the room, which was so dirty that we do not even dear to sit on the bed..... we decided not to unpack and leave this "rat place" for what it is, although I had paid all on forehand. Lucky, we have found some other nice places in the area, with clean rooms, even with a swimming pool for less expensive. Helper told the manager was Dutch, well Dutch people have a reputation of being clean and honest, so probably the exception confirmes the rule.
“A comfortable budget inn at Maribago, Mactan, Cebu ”
This budget traveller's Inn is a 30min taxi ride from the airport. It's conveniently near with some resorts in the island. If you just need a place to sleep because your primary purpose is to go out in the water, this inn is just worth your budget. I've booked the room with its own bathroom. I'm satisfied with the basic amenities and the staff is very helpful. I arrived in the place in the afternoon so I was able to see the place right away. Landmark is just it's across maribago grill and the gate and wall is made of bamboo poles. The grounds become a bar in the evening. I think visitors arriving in the evening can detect it if they arrive when the bar is still open as the lights are on displaying the name of the place.
“Low c/p value”
Same price wroth staying at a better place. It doesn't look like a guesthouse or hostel, it's a bar! Local people also know it as a bar. Staffs are not good at English.
breakfast was nice...would be better if there were clothes hangers around
“Needs a lot of improvement. Nice staff.”
Everything looks old and dirty. The shared bathroom didn't have hot water. Hardly any water come out anyway (no pressure). The toilets didn't flush. One corner of our room was used as storage space covered with old curtains. No wifi in the room. Reality is much different as on the site. Very disapointing. Many things on the menu not available. Bar and staff are nice.
“Not a bad hotel”
Didnt have great start here the aircon leaked onto the bed so had to move to a worse room but next day problem was resolved staff helpfull but at night the bar turns into a bit of a sleezy one.. Not a bad hotel but not near anything
Although there is no hot water provided for shower, the staff is nice and big room
Noisy air conditioning. Little or no water pressure. Smell of surfur.
“Handy to Mactan Island dive sites”
The staff are very helpful with any queries about local transport. The location is very good for using the local dive shops and dive sites. There is a good range of services / restaurants within easy walking distance or by catching a jeepney.
“Don't judged the book by it's cover”
Cleanliness, staff hospitality
At first we we're worried about the place because it doesn't look like a hostel. The ground floor is a bar with pool table on one side and a table and chairs on the other side. The toilet is clean and organized. The only drawback that I could think off is the place is very far from the airport and there is no TV in the room.
