Cebu City Marriott Hotel

Mactan-Cebu International Airport
I wonder why I don’t go to Cebu more often since it was only an hour’s flight from Manila. My round trip plane ticket on PAL cost only P2,500. I think I should travel around the Philippines more.

My friend Tes goes to Cebu regularly to visit her brother. Her first tip to visitors to Cebu is upon exiting the airport,  go across and up to departure area and take the taxi from there. It’s cheaper! Take the white taxi which has a flag down rate of  P40. Our cab ride to the Marriott Hotel cost P200.  If you take the yellow taxis outside the arrival area the flag down rate is  P65-70.

Actually this taxi tip works for Manila’s Naia airport too. The taxi cabs from the departure area are much cheaper. I recently had to take the taxi from Naia airport to Greenhills, San Juan and paid only P150 since it was early in the morning and there was hardly any traffic. If I took the yellow taxi it would cost 30% more.

Check out the unique sitting area at the Mactan-Cebu International airport.

Tes insisted we stay at Marriott Hotel since it was conveniently located right next to Ayala Center. And I’m so, so glad we did.

We had really comfy double beds. There was even a lounge chair in the room which I never got to sit on.

The bathroom was a decent size and very clean.

I always take pictures of the hotel’s toiletries since I myself research the toiletries of the hotels I will stay in so I will know if I have to bring my own stuff or not. I like hotels that offer L’Occitane toiletries.

Rain shower heads seem to be the norm in hotels nowadays.

The Garden Cafe is where you have breakfast and buffet meals all throughout the day. Tes and I didn’t get breakfast with our room but our friends Eric and Rizette did. We joined them on our last day and sneaked a taste of the chicken tocino and longganisa. Both were so good!!

The pool wasn’t big but I loved the lounge chairs. There’s a single and a double size.

Fifteen minutes after we checked in we went to Ayala Center via this walkway from the hotel. A short five minute walk and we were in the middle of the mall.

It looked like your typical Ayala mall, open and green. Beautiful!!!

  1. Marriott, always where I stay whenever I’m in Cebu. Pass through the back door and you’re at Ayala Center.
