Marco Polo Plaza Cebu video review

Marco Polo Cebu is a 329 roomed hotel built on 7.5 hectare of gardens in the Nivel Hills overlooking Cebu City. The rooms are fitted with modern facilities and come with free WiFi. Marco Polo’s rooms all come with large bathrooms, in room safe, broadband internet, mini bar and coffee and tea making facilities. The presidential suite is used for visiting foreign dignitaries and world leaders. The Continental Club (on the 22nd and 23rd floors) is built with privacy and luxury in mind. It has its own private access via a scenic lift as well as private check in/check out. Guests of the Continental Club also enjoy complimentary all-day refreshments and evening cocktails served in a rooftop lounge.

Marco Polo Cebu is one of Cebu’s top higher end hotels, rated as a 4 star hotel. One of my favourite hotels in Cebu City, definitely one I love staying at. It’s a little out of the way of the main uptown area of Cebu, but really only a short taxi ride from most popular spots in town. Nearby it does have some nice restaurants (that have some great views as well) such as Anzani Restaurant, Chateau de Busay, Mr A Restaurant and La Tegola. That’s if you choose to eat outside the hotel’s own restaurants and bars. A nice place to visit in Cebu is Tops Lookout which is located further up the hill.. This provides some magnificent views overlooking Cebu. Make sure if your staying here to book with the buffet breakfast, it’s not to be missed. Some of the booking websites like Agoda have rates for room only or with breakfast. Or check with the hotel direct. Please check out the video review of the Marco Polo Cebu below.

Spoil yourself with the hotel’s professional spa therapists, relax with invigorating body massages, oxygen facials, body scrub, foot spa or a Filipino Hilot massage. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool (open 6 am – 10pm) and has jacuzzi and children’s pool. Other fitness facilities include a tennis court and its fitness center (open 6am – 11pm). Mountain bikes are also available for rent (6am – 6 pm).

Overall Marco Polo Plaza is one of my favourite hotels in Cebu. The Continental Rooms are located on the top floors and provided some of the most quiet rooms I’ve stayed in Cebu. The beds are nice and comfortable (in all room types) and with the quietness I get a good nights sleep. I think also the buffets here are one of the best in Cebu. Heaps of choice and good food as well.  Its location is pretty convenient as well. A bit on the edge of town but still easy access to Cebu’s major attractions. Ayala Shopping Mall is around a 20 minute taxi ride away. Well worth considering if you are looking for a good hotel in Cebu.
