Needs general maintenance. Only a small amount of toilet paper in the room. Not enough towels. Shower head was at eye level in the deluxe room - ok if you are very short. Breakfast was excellent and with good variety... but food temperature not always hot. Years ago, this place was a palace... and THE place to be in Cebu City. Not so anymore. Unless you get a price that's a steal... there are better places at similar or lower prices.

This hotel charges a corkage fee for every bottle of beer you bought from outside. When I checked out, I still had to wait for 25 mintues at the reception counter because there were only one receptionist and people were lining up at the counter. The room is old as well as the carpet. There are many new hotels in Cebu City today which are far better than Waterfront Hotel.

The pics looks great and it is definitively a nice place to stay but it is a little over rated now and rooms need an upgrade. Great staff. Great breakfast The place is huge and has several restaurants- chinese, italian, casino. The italian restaurant was totally over priced taking the quality in consideration. Lunch buffet at 1.700 php is honestly stupid. It is ok, nice buffet indeed but 1.700 ??? Greeat reception area with bar/resto. Very nice pool area - great for kids. Nice location.

The hotel was A-ok. Breakfast and pool were my family’s primary reason why we stayed there. But, I forgot to consider connectivity aka internet. I needed to work some days, but their internet connections was horrible. I couldn’t even open a website. I complained about it and asked the front desk where I could possibly get good connections , they just responded that they couldn’t do anything since they’re fully booked! If that was the test of me keeping my job, i would have lost it. The only bright side for me is that their breakfast was great! Plus it’s not difficult to get a cab/taxi. Lesson learned: if you needed to work online, go elsewhere. It was last minute that we decided to stay for another two days and moved to Seda Bloc. Try there instead.

I have been a regular guest at Waterfront Hotel Cebu City & Casino for the every year for the past 15 years except 2020-2021 due to covid. Frankly, I see a decline in service and facilities and there is little or no action to address this. At breakfast I requested more milk for cereal as the milk carafe was empty. To my surprise the waiter returned with a 2-litre carton of unchilled milk. After explaining to him that cereals are always served with chilled milk he returned with chilled milk. But next day same thing. The milk in the carafe was not chilled and the container it was in had no ice to keep it chilled. Once again, I asked for chilled milk and it was replaced. I later saw a manager pointing out that chilled milk is standard provision for cereals and all hotels follow that just as Waterfront has always done in my previous stays there, including my stay at Waterfront Cebu City in May this year. The manager totally agreed. Next day on entering the restaurant for breakfast a waiter approached me and said you want chilled milk sir? No I said, not just me, everyone expects chilled milk for cereals. I pointed out juices are provided there chilled in dispensers. Milk should also be provided chilled for cereals and simply just for drinking a glass of milk. Two days later it happened again - unchilled milk. After leaving the restaurant, I asked to speak to manager, a different one this time. This manager also agreed and same thing again followed next day. A waiter asked if I want chilled milk. The two managers were simply identifying the issue as a special request by a particular guest. No. It is not a special request. Providing chilled milk is a standard requirement for all guests and up till now Waterfront has always automatically done that without being asked during my many stays there, as it should. Suggestion: Get a cold liquid dispenser for milk just like the 4 chilled juice dispensers that are there in the breakfast restaurant. When we went down to lower lobby we immediately noticed a bad odour in the corridors like the smell from a rubbish tip. It became clear, that this was not just our imagination, when I saw a small air purifier turned on at a power point in the corridor. But clearly this little purifier was not enough to dispel this odour which was also outside in the garden and pool area which is critically in need of redevelopment. Alarmingly, there are no proper change/shower/toilet facilities in the pool area and this was the case well before covid 19. The previous male facility for the pool which had showers, lockers and toilets has been closed for many years. I was told the nearest male facility was in the gym back inside the hotel, quite a distance from the pool. Totally unsatisfactory. You don’t want to walk inside the hotel wet after using pool. And what are they doing about it? Nothing. Still in the too-hard basket. The previously provided shade umbrellas have gone. Not one umbrella there. Ground drainage channels need upgrade- algae should not be visible. The rock looks like it has passed its use-by date. Pull at down and redevelop the area providing proper change room facilities. I reported the odour issue in the lower lobby to a manager. The manager agreed there was a bad odour there but days later no change, odour still there with the one small air purifier working. I get the feeling, Waterfront has been aware of this odour problem for some time but has taken no proper action to address the issue. I might add this odour problem was not there when we stayed in the hotel earlier this year in May. What needs to be done? Provide more air purifiers? No. No. No. Track down the source of the smell and contain or remove it. Waterfront managers just agreeing with guests of an existing issue is not enough. Action to fix it is what is required.

Excellent location with friendly and accommodating staff. Experienced Cebuano hospitality at its best from all corners of the property eg lobby lounge, in house gym, buffet breakfast. Wide variety of food and cocktails are affordable. Room is decent although needs renovation. Taxi/grab cars available round the clock to take you to almost every where.

A little bit like a Las Vegas hotel, some nice restaurants, very international. After several weeks hopping around islands and staying at mountain villas trying not to be overrun by bugs, this was a drastic change for a night before catching my flight home. The room was a bit aged, but clean and well furnished. I could have forgotten I was still in the Philippines. I was looking for a posh urban break to be rested for a long flight, comfort, reliable internet, no surprises, no hassles, no adventures. This place accomplished that perfectly. Plenty of taxis at the door to go to the airport.
