Review: Moevenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu

We decided to try "Moevenpick Hotel" when we visit Mactan Island Cebu recently and generally we had a great time in the resort. They have an awesome white sand private beach so no one will bother you selling you stuff that you don't need. This is a great place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beach.

We got a promo deal from a booking site, for the Suite King but when we got there they upgrade us to the Suite Ocean View with two (2) bedroom which is huge.  The nightly rate also include international buffet breakfast for two adults and two children (11 years old and below) at The Sails restaurant.

Facilities includes gym, game room, swimming pool, day care for your toddler, private beach, free shuttle to and from SM mall or Ayala mall.

Our room view was amazing, it's a corner room facing the beach so we had an awesome view of the sea and some part of the island. The Suite Ocean View has 2 rooms, bathroom at each room and a Jacuzzi. It also has a dining table and a sofa with a huge TV.

We only have two issues about the room, the phone was not working when we got there and the Jacuzzi was leaking. But once we reported it, they were immediately fixed so kudos to the resort management.

Their staff are well trained, friendly, and helpful.

The breakfast at the Sails restaurant was also great, good food and the service was outstanding. We also love the entertainment at the Ibiza bar at night.

The also have complimentary chocolate hour at the lobby from 3.00 pm to 4.00 pm, unfortunately I wasn't able to enjoy this since we were out in the city at that hours.

The private beach was clean, it has white sands, however you can't swim at night by 6:00 pm it's no longer allowed to swim in the beach. Good thing they have a swimming pool that's open until 10:00 pm.

We enjoyed our stay and we'll definitely consider going back at their resort.

Take Care Of Your Skin This Summer, Use Sunblock

Sunblock,skin care, sun, UVA


Having a fun day on a beach also means prolonge exposure from the harmful rays of the sun. Long and unprotected exposure to the sun can lead to sunburn, wrinkles, skin degeneration and even skin cancer. You need to take care of your skin and protect your skin from sun exposure everyday to prevent skin damage.

There are a lot of sunblock available in the market today. There are also different types of sunblock that have different sun protection factor (SPF), ingredients, resistance to water and whether or not they block UVA or UVB rays.

If you are going to swim or if you sweat a lot choose a waterproof sunblock. You should also choose sunblock that have "broad spectrum" meaning it will give you protection from both the sun's UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays can give you wrinkes and it age your skin, while UVB rays can burn your skin, both UVA and UVB cause skin cancer.

Choose a sunblock with an SPF of at least 30, the higher the SPF the longer you will be protected from UVB rays. Look for a sunblock that contains Octinoxate, Octisalate and Homosalate, these are chemicals that protects your skin from UVB rays.
