Moevenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu
- Room Type : Ocean View Deluxe Room
- Stay Nights : 3 nights
- Stay Num : 2 people
I chose "Moevenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu" was cheaper compared with other five-star hotel, that it was close to the airport that security was good, that the atmosphere in the hotel facilities was liked, evaluation It is because it was high. Compared with other 5-star hotels such as Shangri-La and JPark, it was cheap, and since the neighbor was Shangri-La, I thought that security would probably not be so bad. In addition, I liked the atmosphere of pool, private beach, bar, lovely. Ultimately, I decided to look at the reviews of each site. Other hotels saw a word that the private beach was unexpectedly dirty and Wifi was unstable, but I thought that it would not be such a thing if it was a Swiss resort chain, Mövenpick, decided on this hotel It was.
What is the exterior of the hotel? Check entrance and reception
Hotel view from the pool
The exterior looked like two tower apartment, it was a modern design.
Night, hotel view from the pool
The state before the hotel entrance
I saw the entrance from inside the hotel
The lobby is generally based on white and the design of the white ceiling which would be imagining the sail of the yacht swayed by the wind and received a very open impression.
There was a lounge in the lobby. There was a gold colored espresso machine in the center part, and there was a feeling of profoundness.
State of the lobby
In the back of the lobby, you can see the pool and the sea. The contrast between the white of the lobby and the pool of blue and sea blue was very nice.
Next to the lobby there was a space to enjoy billiards, table tennis and chess.
Front desk with modern feeling
There was a sofa in front of the front desk. I felt stylish designer's commitment.

Ocean view Deluxe Room rooms?
Room entrance door
Immediately after entering the room there was a whole body mirror on the right side. There is a bathroom on the left side.
The room was very clean and I got the impression that it is the atmosphere of a European foreign hotel. The floor was tile material, and there was fashionable indirect lighting, and we were able to experience a luxurious experience.
The contrast with the blue sea was good, with many white and bright colors, visible outside the window during the day. It was well cleaned and I never felt any discomfort. It was not a type to set the temperature, but the effectiveness of the air conditioning was also good, and there was not a trouble that it is hot and cold.

The bed was spacious and was rather comfortable with high repulsion. The futon was also a general thing and there was no problem at all.

You can see something like a green forest and a private house of orange roof, a pale blue sea and a vast sky behind it. Although it may be subtle for those who are seeking views only for the Ocean, the forest is also lush and lush, like the harmony of the color with the sea and the sky.
The view from the veranda overlooking down. I could not see the pool from my room.
In the morning, you can see the sunrise in a direction. However, as there are many things that tend to cloudy in the morning, the morning sun itself may not be visible. In the morning, a lot of chicken barks are heard from the forest.
There was shower room in bathroom separate from bathtub.
Looking at the side of the bathroom door from inside the bathroom
Because bathtub shower felt water pressure is weak, we did not use.
Towels were also available on the bathtub.
The shower room had a hand shower with removable height adjustable. Water pressure and temperature could also be adjusted. Because water pressure was the ordinary strength of shower in Japan at most, it may be unnecessary for those who prefer strong water pressure. The temperature could be used without getting unstable even if it was hot. The shower room is a little narrow to use with two people, but there was enough room if it was one.
There was a whole body mirror on the wall next to the toilet.
An arm mirror was also installed beside the sink.
On the washstand there was a shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, solid soap, body lotion amenities. Shampoo and so on were reduced and new ones were being replenished. It was a nice scent with a smell of foreigners.

A set of toothbrush and toothpaste was prepared here. Besides, there was a change of toilet paper and tissue paper, quality was also good.

Facilities in the hotel
There are two main pools, one is a very shallow, children's pool. The larger pool had a structure that gets deeper when going to the center, and in the deepest place there was a depth of 1.6 m.
There is a very wide staircase in two places in the large pool, one on the poolside side where the beach bed is installed, that is, the entrance, the other is a small white chair underwater (children's pool We are going to a shallow pool, a so-called instructive spot.
At night, it was lit up with blue light from inside the pool, it was very fantastic. The chair in the shallow pool was lighted up white and it was a so-called instructive spot. A group of girls who came for photography only was seen. The night pool was vacant and I was able to spend relaxed as there was only one or two pairs of users. When the rain was staggering and the wind was blowing, the pool at night was a bit cold, but on a sunny day it was just right temperature.
When I get off the stairs in the pool there is a private beach. Although not so wide, there was a beach bed and umbrellas that can be used for free, and there was never being crowded during my stay. The beach sand is bare feet and it does not hurt at all even if walking.
The swimming area was partitioned by buoys and there was something like a small island in the middle of the swimming area. I think that it is not a type of landing. I think that the water temperature is around 27 degrees Celsius. I did not feel it was cold. The water is crystal clear, and the fish is about 5 centimeters in size, about 1 or 2 times.
A view of the beach at night
There is a special seat under the pool that overlooks the beach. This is charged.

Spa menu table
There was also a tour desk.
Next to the lobby, there was space to enjoy billiards, table tennis, chess and so on.
Hotel surroundings environment
I felt that the new town is closer than the other places, but because I only moved by taxi and bus, I did not go around the hotel at all. Shangri-La is also very close when you are traveling at the hotel, but this area is never a resort-only area. It is close to the area where the local people live normally. The security check at the main gate leading to the hotel is strict, and the driver of the taxi is a driver’s license, you must hand some kind of tag to the security guard. Then let the taxi go around the strong dog like a police dog, and you can pass the main gate.
Staff & Customers
There was a Japanese staff, one male and one female, when the phone came from the front desk came from the Japanese. Other staff also had less learned English, communication was easy for me who only studied English in Japan. I could communicate in both Japanese and English.
There were many Koreans in the audience, many Japanese people. There are many couples and girls 2-4 groups, the family has many children with big children, I think that there were very few families with small children. Other rare occasions were European people.
It was around 20 minutes by taxi from airport as we heard. There was an announcement that we will pick you up from the airport to the hotel at 500 pesos, but I think it is very expensive. Taxis have the disadvantage that time can not be read before coming, but they are overwhelmingly cheap. A free shuttle bus to Ayala Mall has two roundtrip flights a day, so it was convenient as we can also make a reservation. However, it took more than an hour because the traffic situation was not so good and it was crowded. Because taxi did not come so much, I was quite taken time waiting for a taxi.
We stayed at this hotel and it was very good. It was certainly a long way to go to Cebu City, but delicious restaurants and supermarkets were enough in Mactan Island, so it was relatively cheap and cheap to move with a taxi. More than anything, the atmosphere of the pool, the beach and the beach bar was very good, it made me the best memories. I was able to complete a very fulfilling day to train muscle at the gym, go to the pool and the beach, play billiards and eat dinner at the bar without tending to lack exercise on the trip It was. The Filipino staff who worked were also very comfortable and I remembered just staying in the restaurant for dinner once during my stay and talking with a smile while waiting for a taxi.
