Located in the barangay’s mountainous areas, this is among the lesser-known budget hotels in Cebu City with a swimming pool. It has a view and there’s more than one pool to choose from.

A tricycle will cost you less than ₱50 to and from, but you will have to take a short walk to the resort’s entrance.
