There's a reason why this one is tagged as 4/5-star hotel -- great service, good rooms + if you're lucky, you'll get rooms with a perfect view of Cebu, as the hotel is perched on top of a hill. Only downside: quite the drive from the city proper.

Majestically situated on 7.5 hectares of landscape gardens in Nivel Hills, overlooking the fascinating Cebu City below is Marco Polo Plaza. Ideal for business or pleasure, the hotel offers live evening entertaiment at the rooftop bar, daily sumptuous buffets at the coffee shop and refreshing cocktails at the poolside bar.

Had some issues with check-in and room setup plus the delay in getting my room. Room was clean but the best part is the view outside your window: CEBU CITY AND MACTAN CHANNEL, nice...

After a few days in a local so-called luxury resort I was happy to be back for the rest of my trip in the Marco Polo Cebu. It's definitely not a super deluxe hotel ( which I think dies not exist in the Philippines) but is a realisable friendly hotel with practical room, nice pool and good restaurants. People are...

We stayed here for 7 in the last 8 days and mom coming from Sydney really loved the experience. We always enjoy our breakfast at cafe Marco. I also love the music at the lobby lounge. My friends also had a good dinner with a view at blu bar a week ago.
