It was my third time to visit Cebu and all I really wanted was to chill with my buddies; no tours, no night outs, no nothing. So to fulfill this, the group decided to stay at Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort in Cebu - our first stop on our 2-month summer trip around Southeast Asia.
It was Holy Wednesday and the airport was flocked with travelers who were taking advantage of the long holiday, our flight was at eleven in the evening. Late night flights can be really such a hassle, good thing though, our resort has free airport pick-up and transfer. We just had to look out for our names being flashed on the arrival area of Mactan Cebu International Airport.
Strategically located at Lapu-Lapu City in Cebu, the 15-minute drive to Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort from the airport was smooth. The staff welcomed us with cold towels and soothing drinks. The check-in process was swift and we were ushered in our Deluxe Room in no time (check rates).
We haven’t had dinner (it was around midnight) so we checked out if they could still serve at that time. Fortunately, the in-room dining at Allegro Restaurant is open 24 hours. Serving time was average (well, it was the wee hours), serving sizes were huge and everything was served in our own private veranda.
The group decided to feast on Adobo Rice (410 Pesos), Bluewater Cheese Burger (550 Pesos), Grilled Chicken Salad (230 Pesos) and Allegro Salad (245 Pesos). The Adobo Rice was the winner for me. It was weird because it looked like Lechon Kawali but then I learned that the Cebuanos have a different way of preparing this popular Filipino dish, not the saucy kinda dish but more of a deep-fried fare.
We woke up at around nine in the morning and realized that the complimentary buffet breakfast was waiting for us at the Allegro Restaurant.
