    Nice quite Hotel near the airport”

    Nice moderistic design. with a friendly and helpful staff.

    i stayed in the uptown (1 of the 2 islandsstay hotels in cebu)hotel for 2 days then transferred here to the mactan island hotel. both hotels have no where to hang up your clothes. uptown was so small that i had a very hard time even finding room to set my suitcase on edge on the floor between the bed and the bathroom wall. so i got a double bed room (their room was 4 times larger than uptown)in mactan just to have a place to open my suitcase and lay out my clothes. they gave me 1 of 2 rooms in the back on the 3rd floor (long walk). uptown ran out of water on my last morning there- they brought me a bucket of water to bath and flush the toilet- and waved my early checkin fee to mactan. helpful staff but note that uptown is under construction. mactan has a restaurant in their lobby. i had the aged pork adobo for bfast the 1st day- recieved a small portion that was 95% fat. when i complained i was told that was normal (note- i've lived in the pi for 7 years. sooo. no. that isn't normal) when i complained again on paying my bill they were kind enough to refund my money for the adobo. mactan gave me a quite room but no bedsheets till the next day. and the bathroom floor would not drain cus the floor sloped away from the drain hole. i would recommend mactan- friendly staff and large rooms. islandsstay hotel is a clean and friendly and helpfully staffed hotel chain. just minor problems that need to be corrected to be a top notch place to stay in cebu city.

    Good value hotel”

    I was in transit, flying in from another island with my flight out of the country the next morning from Mactan, Cebu. You get good value for the money. I was only there for a bed to sleep for a few hours. As expected, the accommodation was pretty basic with cable TV & wifi. I was put in a big room with 2 king beds good for a group. The airconditioning unit was a bit noisy since it was window type and installed right beside the door. You get what you paid for. But no regrets. I'd still comeback if I'd be in transit for another early flight next time.

All in all, this is a place to be when you need a good night's sleep and have a flight early next day.

    This hotel is basic but modern and clean, located about 5 minutes from Mactan Cebu airport. The description said there was a coffee shop in the hotel but that appears to be gone now. No worries, the Islands Central mall with lots of food choices is a hundred meters nearby and a 7-11 even closer.

    Quick in and out for airport travel”

    Location near airport, good lechon at restaurant, ease of finding outside restaurants.

    For travel, perhaps the best bang for the buck hotel on Mactan island Cebu. It's located literally around the corner from the airport, so travel to and from is very easy and cheap. As a room, well, it's a budget hotel so there are no frills. Ask for a room in the back and noise is not really an issue. The beds were adequate and the bathroom minimal, but for the price and location, it's hard to beat. If you like good lechon, the Zubuchon outlet in the lobby has very good roast piggie. There are also numerous other eateries and a grocery store within walking distance, the only problem being you have to cross a busy highway to get to them. All in all, for a traveler on a budget, or for someone who hates the nonsense of having to drive for seemingly hours to get to the airport, Island hotels is an excellent choice.

    The hotel is purely for people who needs an accomodation that’s cheap and for a short period of time only. The hotel’s location is great because it is close to the airport there’s mall about 4m from the hotel. For food you don’t have to worry because there’s bucket shrimps, Vue and restaurants across the hotel. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it to a friend if ever they would stay in mactan for 1 or 2days

    Good hotel, awful wi-fi”

    For an overnight stay prior to a next day flight, this hotel is a good value. The huge downside is the barely functioning wi-fi that is so slow most sites wont boot. According to the front desk, they call their wi-fi provider daily, to no avail. Knowing this, why doesnt management change service providers rather yhan alienate their customers. Ill probably stay there again due to the proximity to Mactan airport and go to Bo’s Coffee for wi-fi.

    Near Airport, Clean and Value

    Islands Stay is a convenient hotel for arriving and departures in Cebu, as it is very near the airport. It is clean and simple, bright and cheery. Ideal for a maybe 1 or 2 days. Situated in Lapu Lapu City on Mactan, it is a long trek into Cebu City, so it is not ideal for exploring the city. Most of the good beaches are on Mactan Island, so for these facilities it is fine....and cheaper than the hotels that are beach resorts.

    Made for backpackers!”

    The hotel is located right in the middle of everything in Mactan from souvenir shops to easy transport everywhere.

    This hotel is made for backpackers or people looking for a place that offers the basics such as a comfy bed, hot shower, and clean toilet without the high price tag. Expect to have the basic amenities and not that of a five star hotel. The location is just perfect specially for newbies in the area since it's just in front of various international restaurants, groceries, souvenir/'pasalubong' shops, and one to two rides away to the other places around the island.

The only downside is that there is no WiFi in the rooms. WiFi repeaters are a very inexpensive investment and would be a vast improvement to the current situation

What stands out is that the solo room has its own shower and toilet which is a plus. Though there are times when water pressure is slow, overall experience and value of money are above average.

    Overall Okay”

    We just stayed here overnight. This is Overall Okay. Location is very near the airport. I think we just paid 60pesos from Cebu Mactan airport going here. Staffs were okay too. There are food stalls around the area like Albertos, a bbq house, a coffee shop, etc. Will I go back? Yes. 😊

    I had a comfortable stay at Islands hotel. It is very near Mactan Airport. Restaurants and other dining areas are just walking distance. Very good for backpackers and guest with connecting flights. You can rest and brush up for awhile.

    Convenient, near airport”

    Islands is just 5 minutes cab ride to the airport. It's a convenient place to stay when you are in transit to the airport. There are a lot of eating places just a few steps away from the hotel. The place have basic amenities and no wifi in rooms. Shower in our room has faulty shower head.
