Mango Park Hotel Review
Looking for a value for money hotel along Mango Avenue in Cebu City? Want to stay somewhere accessible to the hottest lifestyle and dining destinations? Searching the city for a venue for your next seminar or private function?
The King of Sinulog is off for a two-night stay at Mango Park Hotel (hotel info) located in General Maxilom Avenue in uptown Cebu City, a hotel that has been on the industry for more than a decade but has managed to uphold its level of standard and service quality under new management. The hotel got the inspiration for its name after Mango Avenue, which was then a park full of mango trees before the construction of the concrete roads. Read on to know more about what’s in store for you.
Assuming you’re already in Cebu City, tell the taxi driver that Mango Park Hotel is located by the highway of General Maxilom Avenue beside Lighthouse Restaurant and in between University of San Carlos North Campus and Colegio dela Inmaculada Concepcion. You’ll clearly see a 6-storey white and brown building. Certain public utility jeepneys (04C, 17C, 12L, 03B) also pass this route which makes it also easy for you to tour around the city via public transport. Nearest establishments include Robinson’s Fuente, SM City Cebu and Ayala Terraces.
It was not hard finding this hotel since you can see it already from a distance. After parking the car in front of the building, we took our bags and went inside. By the way, their parking area could accommodate at least 10 vehicles. On my right was a spacious lounge for visitors and on my left was their in-house restaurant. After filling up information sheets, standard procedure was to pay for your stay in advance. We were then escorted to our room at the second floor using the stairs. Passing through the hallways surrounded by pink and mocha walls with white and green floor tiles, we finally arrived at the last room on the right and entered using a key and powered the room by inserting a glass stick by the light switch.
We stayed at their suite room 203, one of their best accommodations. It was very spacious at about 30 square meters all in all and half of the floor area was carpeted. It had a matrimonial bed and a single bed which were very inviting with a 24-inch flat screen cable TV at the nearest table. For business travelers, the room has a work desk that could also be used as a coffee table. Drawing up the curtains and looking out, the view was blocked by another building. Better choose a room on the top floors if you want spectacular views.
The room looked like it had a private balcony however it was not accessible unless you’d want to climb over the glass windows; it would have been quite impressive. Amenities available for use include a cabinet, safety deposit box, mini-fridge, telephone, hand-dryer, coffee set and outlets with usb charging ports. The bathroom on the other hand was very noteworthy having a bathtub and a separate shower room aside from standard toilet and sink. It also had a telephone inside beside glasses and toiletries.
I really liked the restaurant, half of it constructed with see through glass walls making you see the reception and the highway. The tables and chairs were strategically-placed and the table setup also had a miniature mango tree as a cute aesthetic making it more conducive to a great dining experience. There’s also an extended outdoor deck as smoking area. We were able to try their breakfast menu with three options from 6AM-9AM daily with unlimited juice, coffee and tea on a separate table. Their plated breakfast were well-portioned enough to get you through the whole morning.
They have standard, deluxe and suite rooms with published rates ranging from PHP1,500 to PHP2,500 that already comes with free breakfast and use of the swimming pool. If you’d ask me price and value wise, it’s a really good deal. Although we weren’t able to try their ala carte menu for lunch or dinner, I was able to check out their restaurant’s menu. A typical meal for two would cost around PHP600. An hour of massage costs around PHP400 as well.
The roof deck on the 6th floor is where the function hall, swimming pool and massage area are located.
The fully-carpeted function hall is about 100 square meters equipped with standard AVP system and air-conditioning units that could accommodate about 100 people in one setting at the roof deck with spectacular views by the swimming pool which is only about 12 square meters and 5-feet deep with one lounging chair and umbrella.
The spa on the other hand is handled by Glam Nails & Skin Spa which offers hand and foot care, body care and waxing services which you can avail via room service.
Overall, if you’re looking for a value-for-money hotel at the heart of uptown Cebu close to exciting establishments then Mango Park Hotel is perfect for you. Later!
