Lots of smiles at cebu
Great tasting breakfast
our stay at cebu white sands was great! the food was great. we enjoyed the pool. the location was great, near the airport. the staff and crews was very nice and accommodating. they always carry a smile with them. i wish we can go back to cebu and i'll make sure we'll be staying at cebu white sands again.

Mediocre Place
Nice smile on staff faces!
The hotel is somewhat smaller than the pictures but has nice staff. Spa services are way too expensive. Beach is almost non-existent. All in all, a bit expensive for the facilities.

A nice property nestled within the local community
Pool
- rooms dated, but this adds to the ambiance of the hotel - decent spa, but well overpriced - adequate breakfast - friendly staff - horrible beach - good room cleaning service - calm and quiet during the day - techno and karaoke crazy at night (from next door) The resort was adequate but a little overpriced. The strangest part was the overwhelming feeling that the resort really didn't belong there. Guards protected the door and once your left the property, the locals did their best to empty our pockets without actually stealing from us. Usually resorts are built in an open environment where there is a nice beach and open space. I felt as if I was in a jail with a breakfast buffet and beautiful pool. It just seemed like the resort is ill-positioned, like it doesn't belong where it is.

Very poor Front Office service
Good food and good service from the waiters
I booked my room 3 months before our holiday and specifically asked for 2 beds and have phoned them 2 days before our check-in and yet the reception has given us 1 double-bed for the three of us. I accepted that because the front office promised to transfer us to another room the next day. We have the pool-view which could have been nice but at 11:00 in the evening, we've heard a loud music coming from a different resort. I have reported this to reception and did nothing and so I phoned again and they told me that there were no other rooms available. I told them that we're just going to check-out if they can't find us another room. Eventually after almost an hour of waiting, we got transferred to another room which is right next to the main road, in short we never had a good night sleep that night.

Lovely hotel but bit old
Friendly staff

OK hotel with nice pools
Swimming pools
i arrived in the early hours of the morning but had an easy check-in. room was a nice size but very noisy air conditioner. bathroom could have done with a paint job. room was also quite noisy as i could hear staff and other visitors talking and moving outside. swimming pools were nice but the family pool could have done with some more loungers and sun shades. buffet breakfast selection was average and food overall was not that good. staff were all friendly and helpful. spa was nice.

Decent hotel in tourist hostile area
Excellent staff, nice hotel grounds
the cebu white sands at maribago bay hotel was in it self pretty good and staff was very good. the surroundings really weren't. hotel had a small strip of private beach 20m. but the sand was far from white and was very rough. shoes were needed and i wouldn't recommend anyone to swim in the water. the "village" surrounding the hotel felt far from safe and was pretty much a giant tourist trap. salesman following you and screaming after you everywhere. everything food, massage etc were priced at japanese prices it was actually cheaper to eat the hotel.

Lovely oasis in the urban sprawl of Mactan
Very attractive garden and pool with excellent spa and great service
This hotel deserves to be better known as it was a rare gem in the otherwise depressing island of Mactan. The beautiful and well tended garden,pool and very exquisite new spa rooms well made up for a small and dull beach. PLeasant tradional furnishings and wonderful pots and artefacts in the public areas. Calm and efficient staff who were more than helpful,food although not gourmet was well presented and a welcome change from the ubiquitous buffet. A well managed and modest sized hotel that we were delighted to relax in, for four days.
