Wannabe Resort Property Catering to Packaged Tours

Location, Security, Helpful Staff
did not meet even low expectations for a 3-star property. while the facility as a whole is in pretty good shape, the amenities were very basic and the comfort level was not great. we chose them primarily because we needed to add a 3rd adult and most of the high end resorts don't allow it. they charged us a night to throw a mattress on the floor. i thought, well they had to cover an extra breakfast, but that was a laugh. the breakfast was the most basic i have ever seen at a hotel claiming to serve breakfast. the only protein on offer is eggs (i was offered an "omelette" and that did come with hot dog slices in it... not sure they had much protein though). sliced local fruit, crappy bread, dry cake, and filipino breakfast cereal with milk rounded out the choices. oh, and coffee. if it cost them 100 pesos a person i'd be amazed. our first room had a non-working phone, a barely flowng shower, and non-functioning wi-fi. wi-fi in the lobby was s l o w w w w. i did some legwork and discovered the router on the 6th floor where we were located had a hardware malfunction (radio worked; no network connection), but the one on the 5th floor worked fine. inquiring at the desk i was informed that, "sorry sir, no wi-fi on 6th floor" (so they knew about the problem) and that the 5th floor worked but "in the hallway only". um. i asked if we could switch to one of the rooms next to the router (would be the best bets) and they were able to move us there the next day. the staff was very courteous and helpful throughout, so i don't want to come down too hard on them, but understand this is pretty much a place to sleep only. aside from a few seafood grills with potential, we didn't see any decent restos nearby, and you will not want to eat at the hotel (trust me). their primary clientele (at least this time of year) seems to be large groups of koreans flying in for english classes... the hotel and classrooms in the adjacent building were full of them.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Our primary reason for choosing this place was to drop my Dad at the airport on Day 3 and to visit the Imperial Palace Water Park and Spa on Day 2. You can do a day tour at IP for PHP 2600, or PHP 1900 if you have local ID. It's a pretty good deal if you can get the lower rate, since it includes their excellent buffet lunch (you can have dinner if you don't eat lunch... I'd recommend that). We had very good food and the water park was pretty good also... there's a wave pool, water slides, fountains, and a small ocean beach. There are lots of other recreation options also but we didn't explore them. Definitely recommended for at least one visit, especially if you have kids.

Budget Hotel

Quiet and clean room
The room was in decent shape and check in was efficient. The breakfast buffet was decent, but nothing great. It was kind of like staying in a college dorm. There were some young Korean students downstairs in the lobby running around. There is also English as a second Language school on the lobby floor. So, I think they were attending classes at the school. The grounds were not well maintained and the outdoor pools near the beach didn't look inviting to enter into. Security was pretty good, as there are locals right outside the boundary of the hotel near the beach trying to get you to take their island hopping tours, but the staff is well aware of it. Overall, good for the budget, but not too warm ambiance. However, the staff did their best to make up for the hotels shortcomings.
Nightlife Tip: If you are going around outside the hotel at night be careful.

nice rooms. good enough for short stay

nice rooms and smiling staff. expensive food in resto
don't fall for the prices of the bangkeros, tricycle, independent tour guides cannot be trusted. the resto and bars around are not good even the hotel's. they r mini marts around where u can buy basic needs. the worst part is everything around that area are korean ( food. shops. resto. people) doesn't feel like ur in cebu. plus no private beach as what they advertise.
Phil B. Couples United Kingdom, January 2, 2012
Poor location, service and amenities.

The primary purpose of this hotel appears to be as an intensive English language school, primarily for Koreans. Consequently the atmosphere and staff is geared to their needs. All dining and bar facilities close early, no entertainment except Friday and Saturday, little expectation of demands from the staff and so they are generally not helpful. There is a village located outside the hotel with better facilities than those inside the hotel but it is only a village. Its only saving grace is its 3 pools so take swimwear but don't expect poolside service.
Hotel Feature Tip: Use the pool, then use the other pool, after that use the third pool. You have now exhausted usable pools. Avoid the beach (if you can find it) unless you want a mud bath. All pools are well maintained and the largest has a scuba class. Not mentioned on the website is 'Superior' rooms face landward with no view (avoid them) while 'DeLuxe' face poolside with sea views.

Spacious hotel

Big rooms and wide beds

Nice ocean view from the Deluxe room

We were able to see the fire works on Dec 31 from the room.
Restaurant is not so nice so you can have a meal outside. Reception is not so quickly and out of information. floar cleaning is not enough. But the room is amaging and wonderful. We enjoyed a lot especially room ocean view.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Diving and a lot of activities are there in the hotel. And in the hotel, there is small zoo and top roof swiming pool.

Average Rooms, Average Pools, Average Service

The Rooms Have A Kitchen Sink! :-)
The hotel isn't bad. But it isn't good, either. The rooms are decent. They scrimp on the pillows and beddings, though. On the plus side, they have a decent rooftop pool which hardly any guest ever goes to. And if you have kids with you, the counter, sink and microwave are bonus features that are well-appreciated!
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: If you are toting kids with you, you're in luck! The Mactan Aquarium is just a five-minute walk from the gate of the EGI Hotel.

Big Room and swiming pool area

Service staff was so accomodating
the hotel was nice and the staff was accommodating. the only downfall was that the area was so quiet i was expecting beach area / or near beach area with some night life knowing cebu. if you are looking for a place to stay for honeymoon then this maybe a good place. but if you want to mix things up with adventure and fun then you might have to look elsewhere.
