Hotels in Cebu

Introduction to Cebu

Cebu City is the main population centre on the Philippine island of Cebu. This is a land of exotic foods, eye-catching beaches and an abundance of activities for the outdoor nature lover. If you're ready to visit this very photogenic part of the world, let Skyscanner's online search engine find your perfect hotel room, at the cheapest rate. The system is easy to use, and free, so why not?

Things to Do in Cebu

Cebu City is the place to explore local history. The Basilica of Santo Nino, founded in 1565 as a Roman Catholic convent, is famed for its jewel-encrusted statue of Santo Nino, the Holy Child. It was a gift from explorer Ferdinand Magellan to Queen Juana in 1521, and it has survived many conflicts. The colorful Taoist Temple, about five kilometres from the city centre, features elaborately designed pagodas and dragon sculptures and shows another side of Philippine cultural history.

Head out to Cebu City's Ayala Center Cebu, Robinsons Galleria, the SM Seaside City Centre Mall or the SM City Consolacion for some serious shopping. You'll also find bargains on local foods and souvenirs at the Sugbo Mercado, a farmers' market, and at the Taboan Public Market, sort of a non-stop street fair.

You'll find more than a dozen beaches on Cebu Island as well as a number of off-shore islands worth exploring. Some of those islands, such as Malapascua, Bantayan, and Mactan, combine natural beauty with top-notch resorts. Book a snorkelling or SCUBA diving tour from a number of Cebu locations, as well as fishing charters and nature tours.

Getting To and Around Cebu

Once you land at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB), you'll be roughly 15 kilometres from central Cebu City. Taxis are available, with fares starting at about $20.00 CAD to downtown. Some taxi firms hire out as tour guides, especially in and around Cebu City. Rates are charged according to time booked. If you're travelling light, the local SM City Cebu bus is an option. The ride from the airport to downtown Cebu runs less that $1.00 CAD. Payment is in Philippine Pesos. To give yourself more flexibility, consider a rental car. There's plenty of island to explore.

Hotels in Cebu

  • Cebu City gives you the greatest number of hotel choices, including moderately priced properties such as the boldly coloured Red Planet Cebu or the British flavoured Henry Hotel. Closer to the airport, technically in Lapu Lapu City is the Shangri-La Mactan Hotel Resort and Spa. This lush retreat has its own strip of wide, white sand, hotel rooms that face the sea and is a designated Marine Sanctuary. Even if you don't stay here, it's worth a look.
  • Well known hoteliers such as Best Western, Radisson and Marriott all have properties in Cebu City. Locally owned properties, such as the Pillows Hotel, the Verbena Hotel and the Welcome Hotel, are reasonably priced and have a definite local vibe.
  • Of all the offshore islands, Malapascua Island offers the largest selection of lower priced properties in addition to luxury resorts. The moderately priced Blue Corals Beach Resort and Hippocampus Beach Resort are within steps of the sand. The latter specializes in snorkeling and diving tours to some of the unpopulated islands, such as Gato, a designated Marine Sanctuary. One unusual property, Mar and Ems Bamboo Cottages, offers colourful, eco-friendly rooms made entirely out of bamboo. It's a true island experience, and yes, you can still get Wi-Fi.
