I'll make this as simple and detailed. I'll list down some criteria which I think will be helpful when one is making a decision whether to stay at a certain place or not. Here goes:
-- Skypark Pensionne is very easy to find. Easily accessible too, just about 30-40 minutes from the Mactan International Airport. And surprisingly very near the Pier as well. I'd say a good 10 minute drive.
-- Beside it is a tiny convenience store, a budget food place, internet shop, and a barber shop. The list goes on. Everything you need is near this place.
-- Certain tourist spots such as Basilica del Sto Nino, Magellan's Cross and Fort San Pedro are just a few minutes drive from this hotel.
-- Easily accessible by taxis, Uber and Grab.
Room and Facilities:
-- They have their in-house restaurant, I recommend trying them. They serve warm, hearty, delicious food.
-- The room I stayed in was comfortable.
-- Very big bed, very soft mattress and pillows. I slept so, so good. Trust me, the bed is very comfy and soft.
-- You get a tv with cable, a dresser with mirror, a full sized cabinet with hangers, you get a chair and AC. You also have a sink with mirror, a toilet and a shower area. No bidet but they do provide a pail and a dipper. They have heater but I doubt you'd need it because on its own the water is at a comfortable temperature.
-- Wifi is fast and stable.
-- They will change your sheets upon request.
-- Very, very, very nice and helpful. Very accommodating and sweet. In fact, you'll find that Cebuanos are a different kind of bunch amongst the Filipinos. They are an extra kind of special-- I'm truly left for words.
-- There will be a guard 24/7.
-- Hotel reception will be there in case of late check-in, just be nice enough to let them know what time you will be arriving.
Value for Money:
-- Extremely worth it.
-- Will I be staying there again? Yes, definitely.
-- Were there foreigners staying in the hotel? Yes. Lots.
-- Things that can be improved on? Invest in a less noisy AC, improve pest control or simply provide an insect repellant in each room.
