The best hotel in Cebu with lots of activities. Lots of security as soon as you arrive at the front gate. The lobby is magnificent and grand, all the staff are very friendly. Check in was a bit slow but that's understandable for a five star hotel with lots of guests. The main draw card is the Shangri-las beautiful grounds and pools. They also have a special marine park on the beach. When the tide is high you can just snorkel straight from the beach and see hundreds of tropical fish with some of them following you and lots of them eating weed from the rocks. Its 800 pesos for a half day hire of snorkelling equipment. They also have have jet skis for 1500 pesos for 15 mins, sailing, parasailing, zip lining, kayaks. The views from waves bar and the other bar on the beach are magnificent and there is a great little rock Island for photo opportunities. Breakfast was very impressive and lots of variety. To eat at the restaurants or do lunch buffets or dinners is expensive. Also to have drinks on the beach is quite expensive but worth the expense. Outside the hotel there isn't much around just a few restauarants and street food vendors. It's possible to get a jeepney for 7 pesos up to movenpick hotel for there nightclub and bar which kicks off from 3pm. Pricing for the hotel is about 50% above what the room is worth as the room is nice but it didn't have a wow factor. You really go to this hotel for the views from the beach and pools. Taxis are easy to call from the reception.

I had a late flight and a late check-in was no problem. I cannot say enough about the staff. Friendly, helpful, and always cheerful. The restaurant food was very good and the buffets were almost overwhelming. The restaurant staff made sure you were comfortable and never had an empty glass. I stayed in an Executive Suite with a view of the harbor. At night, I particularly enjoyed the view. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The bed was amazing and the shower refreshing. Room service was quick and the food tasty. Unfortunately, I was not able to visit the spa or pool bar but I am quite sure they are wonderful. The spacious lounge area when you first enter the hotel is fantastic and was a perfect place to entertain my clients and have a refreshing drink from the bar. Not a single negative during my entire stay.
I was in Cebu on business for 5 days and the Radisson Blu Cebu was my oasis. It will be my only choice when I travel to Cebu City.

Stayed here for two days and i couldn't complain. They upgraded our room to deluxe near the pool area. It was so comfortable and quiet around that area, seemed like an escape from the busy and loud beach shore. Buffet breakfast was also good. I'd surely come back if i had the chance.

Great pools, helpful staff. close to everything . Bars restaurants shops. we travel a lot and mostly in 4 star resorts. This resort has had the best buffet breakfast of all we stayed in. A big tick.
The hotel just set back from the beach perfect due to the wind they get in Boracay . I try and always stay beach front but boy I am glad I didn't when we visited. Wind non stop for 2 weeks. It's only 50 metres from beach down a passage it blocks the wind and you enjoy the swimming pools.
