Pleasantly surprised how nice this hotel is. They even have an elevator attendant. Our was on the top floor and provided nice view of Cebu skyline. We had some issues with our room initially but staff responded quickly. Shower was awesome with big shower head and good water pressure. Breakfast was also very nice.

We stayed in Bayfront for 11 days. Here's the breakdown as to why I rated the hotel 3 stars:

Staff - the only bit that I would rate 4 as they are very polite and welcoming. However, it took about an hour for concierge to deliver our luggage to our room. We arrived from a long-haul flight and wanting to freshen up as the family is picking us up to go out and it took about an hour, several follow-ups and finally the husband going down to reception to get the luggage himself. You do get the pleasant greetings even when you arrive early in the morning (it was pleasant when you get greeted good morning by everyone at 3 a.m.😁).

Service - 2-3 stars. It varied however as some staff have prompt response. The cafe breeze service staff seemed to be quicker than hotel staff. The hotel room cleaners do not clean rooms from my experience, they do however replace toiletries, empty bins, change towels and make the bed. Hotel operators are quick to answer phone calls and transfer calls. The coffee cups, the only plate I borrowed from the cafe were not washed/replaced or even removed at all.

Hotel - We booked a deluxe room and they put us on the top floor. View was superb but the room itself is what you get for the price you pay. The lights in the toilet/shower was so dim, maybe to hide the uncleanliness of the bathroom? Our tap (faucet) was clean only during our first day, it was not cleaned again until we checked-out. The drains (sink and shower) needs a good maintenance. I had to pour a jug of boiling water at one point unto the sink as it didnt drain. The airconditioning needs cleaning - it occasionally spits out black stuff (not quite sure what it was). Sheets had stains, the husband saw that they did replace the bed sheets but it was a little uncomfortable when you see blankets with someone else's bodily fluid stains in it (even when it has been washed)-maybe just get rid of the ones with obvious stains in it? The keycard occasionally plays up (3 times during our stay, everytime we come back after being away for 2 days) so you have to have it reactivated or something at the reception. Laundry service was way too expensive for the type of hotel (priced per piece, a shirt would cost around 1 USD for washing and another $ for pressing). The room fridge is not a fridge but a cooler as you cant really store ice cream as it will melt. Your sleep may be disrupted if people walking along the hallway where your room is are loud as you can easily hear them inside your room (you can even hear the security staffs' radio walking along the hallway) Location is excellent! Just across the mall but maybe if you have more money to burn and wanting a posh service, go to Raddison.

Food - mediocre. It was tasty but again, as per review title, the 7-eleven just right outside had better options and cheaper too 😂.

Overall, a 60$ per night hotel will only get you so far. Bayfront is a decent, affordable and good if you just want to use it as a "base" hotel, somewhere to sleep in when you are in the city and not for leisure and relaxing. I rated 3 as the price I paid was a 50% discounted price so if I had paid the full price, it would have been a pricey crappy hotel.

Tip: Taxis waiting outside the hotel tends to rip you off, better head out to the mall taxi lanes.

Our group are about to stay in the hotel for an overnight stay. We confirmed the reservation booking twice and inform them na late na kaming dadating since galing pa kami ng Oslob. But unfortunately nung tumawag kami na on the way na kami for the hotel nacancel na daw yung booking and fully book na daw sila. What happen is di man lang kami na informed ahead of time sayang lang yung twice na reconfirmation na dadating kami sa hotel then ni cancel din naman pala nila. Bad experience for a first timer sana sa Bayfront Hotel.

We were upgraded to a suite the first night. The room was huge. Breakfast buffet was adequate. Service is great. Lightning in the bath is a bit dim for me. Elevator can sometimes be very busy as they only have 2.

- this hotel is right beside Sm Cebu
- airport shuttle (MyBus) is infront of the Hotel which is @ Php40/ person (shuttle leaves every 20 minutes)
- Wifi on every room for free

Stayed at Room 909

Hotel Staff
- Friendly, Helpful and Accommodating

- smells good from the lobby to the room and its clean

- clean and comfy beds

The only problem i encounter:
- they only have 2 elevators for the entire hotel so cue at the elevator is quite long.

Buffet breakfast
- not a lot of choices but quite good and reasonable for the price

Tips :

It costs 200+ pesos but if you will take the SM My Bus, it will be 25 pesos. Bayfront Hotel is located just right in front of SM Cebu's My Bus terminal.

It's not free. I followed a helpful guide from YouTube (the title is "CHEAPEST RIDE to Mactan, Cebu International Airport" - sorry I cannot include the link in this response)
