Good value for what I paid. They were just finishing off the first of two swimming pools when I was there. The place is still has a lot of development going on but only during the day. The room is better than most you will stay at. I stayed one week and paid usd199 for the whole week. I also had free internet and free airport transfers. I will stay again next time in Cebu.

We paid just USD550 for the entire month stay at SDR. There was an extra charge of approx USD55 for bills (on a usage basis) which was reasonable. The location is close to airport, malls, restaurants, bars, supermarket and beaches. About 20 mins to downtown Cebu. Lovely staff, including the irrepressible Leelin :) there is ongoing construction - as more apartments are being decorated, I assume for rental. Didn't bother us as limited to internal work. The value is incredible for what you get. A stylish apartment with a real kitchen, large refrigerator, hot and cold beverage heater, plates, cutlery, modern furniture etc.

Good location on mactan island, cebu. Close to malls, shopping centre, supermarket and beaches :) Rooms are high standard. There is 5 large apartment blocks but we stayed in the main building as there is still construction in some of the other buildings. All in all a great stay at a very fair rate.

Not flash on the outside but rooms are excellent. Paid usd499 per month, which is outstanding for what I got. Lots of cool expats staying there - many divers! Close to restaurants and general amenities.

Top Local Tips for Cebu

Great Food Go to Marlin's Bar for a great place to meet Expats and locals. Excellent food, wonderful sunsets over the water and mountains and only 5 minute walk from SDR. Also try Le Tegola Italian restaurant. Also a few minutes walk from SDR.

Beware! Keep an eye on your driver... 80% of them are nice friendly people who are just earning a living but there are a few who will certainly try to scalp a lone traveller. Try to travel in pairs or larger groups rather than travelling alone and at the first sign of trouble ask the driver to pull over, get out and don't pay! This counts even more so if you are female as cab drivers may try to take advantage of the situation. Like i said its very rare but i have experienced dodgy cab drivers there personally so just keep your wits about you during the cab ride - If you find a good cabby try getting his number and you can use him regularly.

SDR Serviced Apartment - Great value for money We found SDR Serviced Apartments via a friend's recommendation. They are self contained and include kitchens, cooking facilities, free cable internet (not wifi thank God) and really large rooms. It was about 400 sqf which would be a deluxe sweet in most hotels. Location is a few minutes from the airport, and minutes from over 100 retail stores. 5 minutes to a half decent golf course, and 10 mins to the beach.
