Cebu - 1 Month Advice

Postby Dash » Sat May 04, 2013 9:41 am

Hey guys, I plan to go to Cebu and hangout for a month. Some background info ~ 26 y/o American

Can anyone recommend some decent apartments or pensions that can be had for 300-400 bucks a month? The closer to Mango Sq. the better.

Any decent beach I can travel to close by? (30 - 60 minutes on scooter)

Be careful with those as they post prices per person per double or multiple occupancy and you may mistake them for private rooms. Read carefully what rooms are posted.

Google: discount hotel: Cebu, discount acommodation- Cebu.

You may try Century Hotel and Mercedes Hotel on Pelaez Street. They may have monthly discounts and may run you some $500 a month or less.

"Decent" and " inexpensive" usually do not go together in Cebu. Somewhere you will need to find a compromise.

Decent beaches? Try Tamboli East and Maribago Blue Water. About 30 minutes from downtown/uptown. There is an entrance fee- some 8-10 consumable in the first one and some 15-17 non-consumable in the second one.

I cant stay at a hostel. Need some privacy and the ability to have people over.

Then I suggest Century Hotel on Pelaez Street in Colon. You can get cheap rooms for some p500-600+ a night. Ask for the cheapest one they have. These will not be great, but you will have privacy, and it is a major thoroughfare. Then, you can just google around and look in newspapers. Usually, ( not always) apartments want a deposit and an advance. Century Hotel is the best there is when it comes to reasonability.
