Book now, travel to Cebu, and let the adventures begin.
Located in the city centre, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu is a great choice and even considered a Cebu city landmark in its own right. As it is set on a hilltop, it affords great views of the city and the basilica itself. The best time to descend and visit the church is on Fridays when they host a huge weekly mass, which attracts both local and foreign. Marco Polo Plaza is also just 10 minutes away from Cebu centre, home to a wide array of restaurants, cafes and shopping malls.
Despite being located in the centre of Cebu, Cebu City Marriott Hotel benefits from the green and leafy setting of Cebu Business Park. A meal, coffee or five minute break comes highly recommended at the beautiful grounds of the Laguna Garden Cafe. The Ayala Mall – home to hundreds of brand name stores and forms of entertainment for example is just 10 minutes away, as is the Cebu International Convention Centre.
Cebu International Port is not far from our final Cebu hotel recommendation, Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu. The location of this 5 star hotel is perfect for visiting many of the city’s best beaches and best dive spots. It’s also nearby many historical sites like Magellan's Cross and Colon Street. An afternoon out exploring these sites along with finding out more about their fascinating historical significance is a great way to spend a day. There is a ferry terminal nearby the port and also lots of taxis and jeepneys – Philippines national public transport – that can be flagged outside of the hotel.
