Thanks for all the recommendations. The gf is heading into the city next week with her daughter and will check a couple out. One place a friend mentioned to her is the Fuente Pension House which she will go look at. Will keep you posted.

Seems a choice between Fuente Pension House and Apple Tree which are opposite each other and both have top floor restaraunt and bars and perfect locations for getting about. Thanks for all the previous advice

The best thing about Fuente Pension is their rooftop lounge otherwise their rooms are rather spartan.

Used to stay at Apple Tree quite a bit and their rooms are a step up from FP. They have two cheap rooms on the first floor without windows. :wacko: One of the best safety deposit box set-ups in the city with the boxes located in a room behind the front desk. Two keys needed to open and everything is on CCTV. :cool_01: Great staff!

Thanks for that. Sees the Apple Tree has free breakfast as well which will be good to save searching around for a place to get one in the morning

Understatement. Norwegian prison cells have better accommodation. No really.

Looks like Apple Tree is heading to the top choice

Always like the Quest Hotel by Ayala, but I now stay in the condos in IT Park using AirBNB... good luck with whatever you chose to do!

 

EDIT_ condos are much cheaper too, you get a kitchen, and so many places to eat etc in IT Park

Well, that's not saying much really.  Norwegian prison cells are on par with Sandals resorts.

Maybe there's something you can do to get a couple weeks.

Saying a room in the PI's is spartan is saying a lot!

No toilet seats on the toilet, no mattress on the beds, no pillows??  You need to be a bit more specific.

Secure setup to keep things is way up on my list!

Thanks to all you members who thought they were helping out a newbie to Cebu and the Philippines.

Nick who has been banned from the forum on several previous occasions, was in Cebu the 1st time before many of you and knows his way around.

It's bad enough that he keeps sneaking back on the forum, but to waste your time by pretending he's never been to the Philippines is inexcusable.

I wanted to question his girlfriend knowing her way around Cebu but was biting my tongue.  Possible legitimate reason?

Not a complete waste, I picked up a couple tips.
