The hotel is ok but could really do with some improvements. It is an old hotel and the rooms are generally worn. The window was very dirty and one of the lights was in poor condition. There was also no bidet or brush for the toilet. For the 14 nights I stayed, there was no soap in the male swimming pool toilets. The toilets were also in a generally poor condition, and it felt like they were just neglected. I found the staff generally good. The cleaning staff was excellent. Security were polite and numerous. It felt very safe. Breakfast was excellent. As you are not allowed to use the stairs, it can be ridiculous trying to get back to your room when there are big events going on. I had to wait over 45 mins one evening just to return to my room. Overall, I would not say this was a terrible hotel, though I do believe it is overpriced relative to other chealer hotels I stayed in the area. I can believe it used to be once great, but it feels like it has been left behind to rot. With investment and a heavy focus on modernization, this hotel has the potential to be great.

Cebu waterfront hotel is a large and elegant hotel in Cebu city (not near the waterfront). I stayed in an ambassador suite. It was large and comfortable with a nice living area with a half bath, and a separate bedroom with a full bath. Everything worked well in the room. You are greeted by staff outside the hotel, and the lobby doors are opened for you and you are greeted again by young women in long red dresses in the lobby. There are restaurants, conference rooms, a gym and a large pool and garden area. The pool area looked to be showing its age but it was still attractive. Staff were courteous and helpful. My only problem or complaint is that there were a number of conventions or conferences going on so it was very busy. The line for the free breakfast was long and there was only one person checking people in for breakfast and it was taking a minute or two for each guest. They needed to get more help at that point. We had to skip breakfast and that was a little annoying.

After coming across a positive review from a vlogger, I opted to book a stay at this hotel for the conference I'm attending. It completely lived up to the praise - incredibly accommodating, impeccably clean, and offering top-notch customer service! I'm already planning to return with my entire family!

Nice hotel near the airport in Cebu City. Having a casino in the same building surely makes some people staying here, but probably most customers are here for one night after or before a flight. Overvelving brakfast is served with dishes Ive newer ewer have experienced before. Big a cosy rooms. Fantastic personel.

I tried booking at the lapu lapu hotel waterfront and casino by the airport.. I was on the website for this site and it redirected me to cebu city. I ended up making the reservation and wasn't able to switch to the one by the airport. I had to pay for the reservation without using the room. I did stay and the lapu lapu waterfront and casino so i could be at the airport early . It was a very nice hotel. But didn't like how I couldn't switch the reservation.

I booked my flight through online. I was hesitant at the beginning because of the price, and my husband insisted me that I have to stay in this hotel for safety, or secure stay, and the bonus part was the food buffet, all the staff were friendly and also the cleaning time of the room, she was super quick to clean my room. Overall, it was a great experienced, spacious room, I was at the 8th floor. I had a leaking experienced but the engineering staff went and fixed it fast. I stayed for less than a week, 5 days maximum, Thank you for my safe and pleasant experienced, Hopefully I could go back and bring my entire family to stay next time!

Excellent architecture and location. Has a casino for gambling enthusiasts. Taxis are not a problem, and it has its own shuttle service to and from the nearby Ayala Mall. But it's getting antiquated, by still using soaps, instead of liquid gels. Toilet does not have bidet. A little upgrade and this hotel would be great again.

This was our second staycation experience with Waterfront Hotel & Casino-Lahug. Our first overnight stay here was in March 2021 and everything was good back then. However, when we came back last weekend, the experience was no longer memorable. The phone was not working, I requested for a flat iron but the staff claimed that it was not available, the carpet was not vacuumed as it was dusty, and the window glass got stains all over that I could not appreciate the view. Our reservation included breakfast also but we did not enjoy the food (pancit was dry, bacon was overcooked to name a few) - even my partner who is a chef, commented on how unpleasant the food was. Personally, I paid for an overnight stay in a 4-star hotel but it seemed the experience was that for a 2- or 3-star.
