Diamond Suites and Residences Cebu
One of the perks of being a host for a nationwide campaign is that I get sent to different places and get to stay in different hotels. So far, in my tour of our motherland, I have not seen a better hotel (to date) than Diamond Suites and Residences in Cebu.
Situated in a quiet street in Apitong, Cebu, Diamond Suites is primarily a businessman’s hotel. It’s tucked nicely in an unassuming street and was a real nice discovery for us. The hotel reminds me of this nice boutique hotel I saw when I was in Las Vegas. Another attraction of the hotel is that it’s near the Ayala Center – Cebu’s premiere shopping center.
The lobby is breath taking. It’s design is simple yet modern. I found it to be quite artistic and yet cozy at the same time without feeling rustic. Once inside, we were taken aback with the excellent customer service that the staff gave us. After booking in and giving them our details, they immediately gave us a piece of paper that had the username and password to their WiFi internet. Most places wouldn’t do that. That singular action was pleasantly surprising. They had a pageboy immediately take our bags and took us to our room. He gave us the tour and told us how everything worked and even stated that the toiletries were complimentary as well as the coffee and the water. He also stressed that if we needed anything, all we had to do was call.
As with most hotels, we take time to wander around to check on everything. Though the rooms were non smoking, they do have a smoking area that looked like a wonderful Zen garden! Best of all, it was near our room too!
Dining is another area for criticism in hotels. We were the only one in the restaurant at that time since it was an odd time for us to be eating. The staff were a bit harried bu they were polite and they’ve accommodated every bit of our request. They didn’t have any tabasco sauce but they were quick to replace it with local hot sauce. Not the same but I applaud them for their efforts at efficiency.
Diamond Suites and residences is probably best to be categorized as a service apartment as they also have long staying and permanent residents. Their rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. We absolutely love the memory foam pillows and the duvets. It’s just too bad that we weren’t staying overnight. They also have a gym and a swimming pool for you to enjoy! what else could you want?
