Islands Stay Hotel - Mactan Branch

I was fascinated with this hotel's fun and modern design. I love its location, very near the Cebu Mactan International Airport, only a 3-minute taxi ride. If you need to go to a store or restaurant, you just have to walk for 2 minutes. There are awesome beach resorts and spas within the same island, too. Well, just some of the reasons why I chose Islands Stay Hotel - Mactan branch for our recent Cebu trip.


I wasn't able to photograph the facade of the hotel, but this is the front desk.
The left side is the newly opened Zubuchon, famous Cebu lechon, Anthony Bourdain's "Best pig.. ever!"

These are the rooms with the parking lot on the right.
It's more like a motel from one of those Hollywood movies, right? :)

The Islands Stay Hotel - Mactan Branch has Small P980, Medium P1450 and Large rooms for P1650 per night. Ours was a large room that could occupy up to 4 pax.

There are just a few colors you can see in this hotel.
They are white, orange and green.

Each room has an LCD TV, aircon and land-line telephone.
However, only Large rooms has tables and chairs and kitchenette (below).

The bathroom has hot and cold shower other than toilet and lavatory.
And, supplies of clean towels, shampoo, soap and cotton buds come everyday.

Things that I DO NOT LIKE about the hotel:
-Most pillows, including this bean bag lack fluffiness.
-The kitchenette is bare*. There is nothing in it.
-They do not serve breakfast in the hotel. Thus, the affordable rate.
-There were no chairs on our first night and just a single one came the next day.

Things that I LIKE about the hotel:
-All the things I mentioned above.
-There is free wifi for everyone.
-They have Zubuchon at the hotel lobby.
-The staff are friendly. You forget your complain after you see them smile.

Overall, I am giving this hotel a 7/10 rating.
If I were to go back to Cebu, I would possibly stay at the same place.

*They charge P200 per night for the use of ref as per request.

Note: Book a medium or large room 1 month in advance to get 15% discount.
