Do not expect a lot. Okay room for cheap price.
As my title suggests, do not expect a lot from this hotel. You should lower your expectations from this hotel since you get to have a very cheap accommodation. Before we went to this place, we already set our expectations at a low standard. We only opt for this place since it's very near to Shangri-La Mactan and my brother is joining the Ironman 70.3 race. And we don't want to break the bank for our accommodation since we're not going to stay there a lot; we'll spend most of our time outside the hotel. Things that might turn you off: • Old aircon ⟹ It takes a while before the room gets cold enough. Keep the aircon on even if you leave your room. • No pail and dipper (timba at tabo) ⟹ Filipinos are used to "timba" and "tabo". They don't have one here. • No guest kits when we arrived ⟹ We had to ask the front desk a couple of times before we got our guest kits (shampoo, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste). • Weak wi-fi signals ⟹ They have wi-fi but the signal strength is weak. I sometimes get disconnected from time to time. It might be because of the location of our room. Things that might want you to stay here: • Spacious room and bathroom • Closet for your clothes • Small compartment with lock for valuables • Small refrigerator • Long study table • Free wi-fi and breakfast • 2 kms away from Shangri-La

Pros and Cons of Cleverlearn Residences
Pros: 1. About 10 minute taxi drive from the airport. Handy if catching a flight. 2. Air-Con was reasonable, cooled the room and did the job. Had fridge. No TV. 3. Two basic single beds, clean, room was basic and limited. Cons: 1. I would not classify this place as a hotel, it's a residence hall for people learning English, there are classrooms downstairs. It's similar to poor quality university accommodation except worse. 2. Location is very bad, it's beside a main road which is quite noisy, bordered on one side by slum shacks and housing, the coast facing side is very poor also. 3. Bathroom was basic, un-modern and nothing special. 4. There are no tourist facilities within the area for internationals, food is all catered to locals. Only one bar worth visiting. We walked the road for a significant period and found nothing in the area to do. 5. WiFi didn't work adequately in room. 6. No deck-chairs at pool which is walled off, didn't choose to bother using it. 7. Chose not to eat the food after reading poor reviews. Overall: What is the point in staying here there is nothing going for it, Glad I only booked one night, happy to leave. Would never stay again. Only upside was it was near a very cool 'rock and roll bar', at the other side of the road. Had great night there, good fun. Would thoroughly recommend paying a visit for a drink if you are in the area.

AWFUL 1-star motel
It was 2 terrible nights. It was such a big mistake to book this room (Superior) through Asiatravel, paid 2365 PHP, it is around 50 USD. The room was for 2 persons, on 2 floor, very dirty inside, linens with stains, smells smoke, because down is smoking place. There is aircon, but no remote. Plastic ! sanitary, broken tile. Jalousie are broken, so no choice to seclusion, like in aquarium. The hotel is located on the main road, so is very noisy at night time. Hard to sleep. And on the beachfront, but it was low tide every morning, smelly, behind the wall-slum. There is only one good thing-is pool, but after all seen in the room, didnt want even try. Big cockroaches everywhere, even in the room, may be because of slum. After 1 terrible night, asked staff to change the room, but after I came back at 9 afternoon there was no staff, so no choice or offering to change the room. They could make up the room at least, but for what?! So dirty again, no drinking water. Breakfast from 07/00-08/30 was bad also, rice with water-soup, rice with something... It looks like campus for Cleverlearn school, but not 3*-star hotel! Please, inspection take away stars from them! People, be aware from this "hotel", only if you don't want to learn english, but what quality...?

Wasn't great at all
Stayed here for 4 nights with my partner, room wasn't cleaned the whole time we were there and had to request toliet roll and clean towels ourselves, this is a student accommodation which was very noisy at night, and very basic, pool was clean but no sun loungers or chairs to sit on, very distant from everything but if your looking for somewhere close enough to the airport then here will do the job still overpriced for what it is and photos look to be about 6 years old!

Comfortable Room
The room was big enough and comfortable. It has a refrigerator, hot/cold shower, a very long desk for studying or for your laptop, and a comfortable bed. This is also a dormitory of an English school so expect to see a lot of foreign students like Japanese. There is free drinking water in the lobby. They have a very well-maintained clean pool (except early in the morning) at the back of the rooms and the most exciting part? You can see the sea from the hallway. Don't miss the sunset. It's so beautiful.
