After I bought my tickets for my Cebu trip on April 2012. I happened to check www.ensogo.com.ph on that week and there was a 3D/2N discounted price of P5,000 ($121.72) for a Superior Room with 2 double beds and buffet breakfasts for 2. I immediately e-mailed Crown Regency Cebu for the reservations and they have a fast and reliable e-mail system that urgently answers your inquiries.

Before we headed to the hotel, we first visited MAGELLAN and LAPU-LAPU SHRINES in Mactan Island.

But if you happened to get a white taxi from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the taxi fare will costs you around P200 ($4.87) – P250 ($6.09) depending on the taxi you get. {I had an experience that the taxi driver asked an additional P50 on top of the total fare}.

We arrived at 9AM after our visit in Mactan Island. I went to the reception to ask if our reservation was confirmed. To my delight, she told me to go back at 11AM to see if there will be available rooms. My brother and I went to the a5-minute walk mall, Robinsons Fuente, and bought water and snacks. And stayed there for a while for their wi-fi connections.

We went back at exactly 11AM at the hotel and gave the receptionist my Ensogo Voucher and my I.D. In few minutes, she processed our early check-in (with NO extra costs). I felt relieved knowing that we need not wait until 2PM because I was so tired and got no sleep the whole night at the NAIA Airport.

Me and my brother, first checked out the Swimming pools at the 9th floor before heading to our hotel room.

21″ TV with Cable and Ref inside the cabinet {TV was definitely out-dated but as long as it has cable, fine by me. I went there not to watch TV}

Hot and Cold Shower with Bathtub; basic toiletries; hair blower {had a great time in the shower but had a problem with the blower. Every 1 minute it automatically stops. Should have brought my own blower. Especially that my hair needs special attention}

We skipped it because I am scared of heights and won’t enjoy it as much. But it’s a must-try in Cebu!

Likes:
1) Service.They have a luggage service at the lobby and it’s for Free!

2) Adventure. Hotel has a sky-adventure that young and adults will surely enjoy.

3) Location. It’s 5-15min walk from Malls, Hospital, BBQ restaurants in Larsian sa Fuente, and a 15-20min jeepney ride to the tourist spots (Basilica del Santo Niño, Magellan’s Cross, Fort San Pedro, and Tabo-an Market)

4) Superior Room. We got the perfect room with the perfect view and the one assisted us gave us an early-check in with no extra charged.

Just a Minor Dislike:
1) The concierge and door guards will offer you the hotel tours for price range of P1,500-P2,500. A serviced car with your own driver that will let you visit the tourist spots in whole Cebu City. But they will only bother you on the first day.
