Chronicles of a Happy Married Life

Pacific Cebu Resort – An Island Paradise

Before summer officially end, let me share with you my birthday celebration in Cebu last March. We rented a Condo Unit via AirBNB for 5 days at the IT Center in hopes being able to visit a lot of places in Cebu but we had to ditch our plans because Migs was not feeling well. Good thing, we did not pay for a tour because either our money will be wasted or Migs condition will worsen. We just enjoyed exploring the City. We were able to visit the Magellan’s cross, Sto. Nino Church, Sugbo Mercado and explored few restaurants inside the IT Park. We also enjoyed cooking our favorite dishes from their local market and was even able to buy few kilos of dried squids, fish and of course dried mangoes.We crossed out our plans of going to Bantayan Island and Bohol because of the travel time and just decided to do a last minute booking at Pacific Cebu Resort. I am happy that I was able to book a hotel through my favorite hotel app – Hotel Quickly! Hotel Quickly’s very helpful because you can see actual photos and feedback of a hotel. So, you don’t need to do extensive research when you’re trying to book one ( I am not paid to promote Hotel Quickly – I just love them! LOL).

It took us 30 minutes to book a cab going to Pacific Cebu Resort because none of the Grab Taxi Drivers would pick us up. Travel time from Cebu IT center to Suba-basbas, Lapu-Lapu City is an hour and Cab meter was Php380 but we paid Php500 because our Cab driver is really nice. He was even surprised that we refused to accept change.

We were welcomed by Pacific Cebu Resort’s staff with sweet smiles and confirming my reservation was easy breezy. The beach is so inviting! I wanted to drop our things to our room and head to the beach immediately. When we entered our room, I suddenly changed my mind about heading to the beach right away. Our room was so cozy and has a cute veranda where we could eat or just hang out. We took a power nap and went out to check their resto’s menu at 4:00 PM. By the way, they have a reliable wi-fi connection too. So, this resort is also ย ideal for free lancers.

There were only few guests at the resort and 90% were Japanese. We were told by one of the staff that the resort used to be exclusive for Japanese guests. I’m glad they opened it for everyone. Pacific Cebu resort is a perfect diving spot according to their guests but they also have two swimming pools for other guests to enjoy.

We were lucky to be able to book a room on a weekend and enjoyed not just the view of the ocean and good food. There was also an acoustic show while we were having dinner.

I would say that our stay at Pacific Cebu resort is the best part of our Cebu vacation and we promise to come back once Migs is back on his feet.

      Yes, superrrr! Hahaha! Parang Manila ang flow ng traffic.

      • It’s been almost 8 years since I last went there in Cebu, and I can’t believe na hindi pa rin nagbago ang traffic dun sa Cebu.. But you gotta admit, their food there is super awesome! Personally, I think it’s even better than what you can find around metro manila, plus they’re on the MORE affordable side hehehe.. And now I’m missing the lucious lechon and pandan rice there :3

  4. This definitely looks like a paradise spot ! I love the 5th picture with the palmers and the sea, it increases the feeling. And the last picture is cute, you two look good together.
    I trust you on the Japenese being nice, I’ll figure this out with my girlfriend when we’ll visit Japan !

      Thank you, Xavier. I hope you guys can also visit the Philippines one of these days. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. OMG!!! I work at the building just across Garden Bloc where Sugbo Mercado is! Have you tried the Papa Churros there? It’s my favorite everytime Sugbo Mercado is open! HAHA! And waaah I live in Lapu-Lapu but I haven’t tried Pacific Cebu Resort yet. I have always wished I could afford it because my HotelQuickly credits are now all expired. Huhu. So sayang! Ang ganda kasi talaga sa resort na yan!

  6. I super love Hotel Quickly too. You guys are the first people I read who’re using HQ. It’s so convenient and cheap. Too much freebies, too! I was also in Cebu last March but did not stumble upon this place. We could’ve met!

  7. Ohh! Pati ba naman sa Cebu may traffic? Buti na lang you enjoyed!! Cebu has a lot of beautiful tourist spot to visit!! Hopefully, I could visit Cebu soon!!

  8. Cebu is still one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited here in our country. The beach is stunning and just relaxing. It’s best to visit when it’s not summer. Hehe. Also, I think Pacific Cebu Resort was a good choice! The place looks clean and peaceful as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. The pictures look amazing although the size is small. ๐Ÿ™ But, I think you really had a great time ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. That looks like PARADISE ! What a stunning resort , I love the colouring , all white and that lovely turquoise with it ! I think , I have never seen a beach that white and beautiful before. Will certainly google that resort , wondering what the pricing is like .
