Restaurants and Bars

With 9 restaurants and bars at Jpark Resort, there is plenty of choice for everybody.

The Abalone Buffet Restaurant

For one of the largest and best buffets in Cebu head to the Abalone. With a huge array of cuisines from local to international you’ll never go hungry here. The desserts pretty special too! Generally when you book online with your favourite booking sites such as Agoda, room rate includes a breakfast or has the option to. I would recommend taking it (if it fits within your budget) with the buffet breakfast, it’s just amazing (see video and photos).  It can get a bit busy at breakfast though.

Olive Restaurant

This restaurant mixes Asian and Mediterranean cuisines. Seats up to 110 people.

JLounge

Located in the lobby, this cafe offers light dishes with signature coffee and tea sets.

Ching Hai Chinese Restaurant

Serving up classic and contemporary Chinese cuisine.

Maru Korean Restaurant

Serving up popular Korean dishes as well as table grilled Korean style beef or pork.

Coral Seaside Restaurant

For seafood lovers the Coral serves contemporary seafood cuisine next to the ocean. Open for dinner only.

Rooms and Villas at JPark Resort Cebu

As you would expect, the rooms at the resort are excellent. At times they do have promos rates as well as early bird specials. Just check with the resort directly or sites such as Agoda, AsiaTravel, Trivago, Hotelscombined or your favourite booking site. As a ball park figure room rates start from around 11,500 PHP. The rooms are modern and stylish. Really nice to stay at.

They start from the Deluxe with the Ocean View Rooms offering the better views but with a higher price tag. They either come with 1 king bed or twin beds and the rooms are around 38 square meters in size. Include balcony, LCD TV, mini bar, safe, hair dryer and the bathrooms come with bath and shower.

Mactan Suite – these room types are a 1 bedroom suite for 2 adults and 2 kids, the rooms cover around 76 square meters in size. They either have king or twin beds as well as having a living room, mini pantry, mini bar, microwave, safe and 2 LCD TVs (one in the bedroom and one in the living area).

Cebu Suite – this is 2 bedroom suite and large size. With the other amenities being the same as the Mactan Suite.

Villa – There are 22 villas at Jpark, either having the Jacuzzi or the pool villas. These are my favourite type of room available at the resort. An excellent way to spend your vacation in Cebu, although they don’t come cheap. When I stayed it was over 16,000 + PHP a night!

They also have a Family Villa which is a 2 bedroom villa. Suites also come in the Executive Suite, Ambassador Suite and Royal Suite.

Final Thoughts

Without a doubt, Jpark is a fantastic family friendly resort in Mactan Cebu. It’s huge and offers just about everything you could want from a resort. It is popular with the Asian tourist, and the place can get quite busy at times (noisy). Yes it is expensive, but that’s the norm in Mactan Island.  The waterpark is a real fun place with the family or just lazing around its main swimming pool.  One of best resorts in Cebu. For an alternative you could look at the Shangri La Resort, my favourite resort in Mactan.
