If ever you find yourself looking for affordable hotels in Mactan Cebu in the Philippines, you have come to the right place!
Mactan, Cebu is the centre for tourism and industry in Central Visayas. It is home to various Mactan Resorts which range from affordable to luxury resorts. The island also serves as the centre of operation to the Mactan Economic Zone which is home to over 35 international companies.
The Mactan-Cebu International Airport is conveniently located in the island, making it a favourite, if not the ideal stopover, for most travellers visiting Cebu and its nearby provinces.
If you are in the city for a couple of days, you can certainly do some resort hopping (which may be quite expensive especially if you are aiming to try resorts like Plantation Bay, Crimson or Shangri-La). If overnight stays are too expensive, try Day Use and you’ll still get to enjoy most of the amenities they offer like we did in Vista Mar Resort. Reserve a day for some island hopping fun in Mactan or in nearby islands like Pandanon and Mocaboc Island in Bohol.
Below are some of our recommended hotels in Mactan Cebu for travellers wanting a convenient and affordable stay in the island:
