Even though Cebu City is, sometimes, painfully a long way (around 3.5 hour by car or by scooter) from San Remigio, we somehow end up staying there for a night or two quite regularly. We use Cebu City either as our staging point for different trips or when we go for doctor’s checkup.
Friends and family live in Cebu City too. It’s also the perfect escape for us when we’re in the mood for some urban city life.
Metropolitan Cebu is composed of three other cities: Mandaue City, Lapulapu City, and Talisay City; so it is massive. It has a vibrant cultural, entertainment, and night life scene. Also, it is the gateway to the tourist destinations in the Visayas region, for example, Malapascua, Bantayan Island, Bohol, etc. So there are many hotels to choose from for your overnight (or however many nights) stay before you head to your final vacation destination.
For us, we are the kind of travellers that put comfort and value above all else. Our criteria is simple: our hotel room must be clean, have aircondition, have our own toilet and shower; and the hotel must be in a safe location. We have been to many hotels, from budget hotels, to pension houses, to many starred hotels, but this is the hotel in Cebu City that we prefer the most: Sampaguita Suites JRG.
