    I've only been to Maribago.

    The duplexed rooms right on the beach are a world apart from the
    prettified-tenement stacked-boxes towards the rear of the property.
    The beach itself is a coarser sand than I'd like. Food from the resort's
    restaurants or from mga nearby (roadside) grill joints is great ...better
    than SuToKil, lol...

    The resort is kid-friendlier than most.

    Take a morning boatride out to nearby, tiny Caohagan Island for lunch
    right on the shore -and oh, there's this sandbar stretching out into
    aqua-colored shallows, where you can sit, surrounded by nothing but
    the sea, almost. Wade out just a little, and it's deep enough to swim,
    or you can just sit on the sand, the waves lapping at your belly... and
    enjoy the views, the cool water, the bracing wind, and the absence of
    any 'civilized' noise.

    If you're with good company, as I was, you'll enjoy it.

    hth,
    h.

    Shang is better that Plantation Bay, but is also priced accordingly. :)

    Maribago Blue Waters is kind of old but still ok.

    Check out Imperial Palace Resort, it is near Maribago, It's newest of the bunch :)

    I've stayed at Plantation Bay for many years, it's a nice place to bring family with kids with the different kind of pools, playgrounds and activities. It's not too noisy at night, and you can do night swimming at the freshwater lagoon. Just don't use their firing range, they charge by the bullet in dollar$ :) Food is ok, not on par with the Shang of course, but why eat at the resort when sutukil is just a few minutes away ;)

    I've only been to Maribago 2x, and the first time was ok, the 2nd time got a little itchy from the sheets. Nothing nasty, they just felt dusty?

    Mactan Shang is good, great actually, but its a bit far from everything (which was intended I think, so you really stay in the resort).

    The Hilton (the reeeeeaaaallly pink hotel) is ok din, good rooms, good staff.

    Suggestion lang Alegra :p Imperial Hotel.. its beside Shangrila... if you have kids.. they'll love the water park. but if your with "ahem" someone or just your better half.. then i'd say Shangrila all the way :) the SPA there is world class... heheheh...

    Shangrila recently a year or 2 back did a face lift :p and Imperial is the latest there i think :)

    Went to Plantation Bay in 2007. The breakfast buffet was good, as well as the service. We ordered something, but got delayed. The restaurant manager gave the order to us for free.

    The place is kinda isolated, though. But, there's an indoor shooting range there. You might as well try the pochero de Cebu at the back of Kan-Irag while you're there.

    The range is ok, but the ammo prices are ridiculous...but then again, they're priced for foreign guests who normally can't own or fire guns in their home countries.
