Video Review of the La Mirada Hotel in Cebu
La Mirada Hotel is a 3 star 40 roomed hotel in Mactan Island Cebu. It was built in 2007 so it a fairly modern hotel. It is located in a fairly isolated area, so you will need to catch transport to go anywhere. Unfortunately taxis charge extra fee on top (last time I stayed it was 100 PHP extra). The hotel is within walking distance it’s 2 other sister hotels, Sotogrande (more hotel style room accommodation than La Miranda as they do not come with the kitchenette) and Vista Mar Resort. This allows guests to use facilities at these 2 other hotels including the restaurants, swimming pools and beach front at Vista Mar. As shown in my video I did walk down to the pier (a fair walk in the heat!) which you can catch public boats over to Olango Island. If you are a bit of a nature lover, it’s well worth going to see the Olango Wildlife Sanctuary. Here you can watch migrating birds that stopover in the mangroves.
La Mirada Hotel has its own gym and a nice looking outdoor swimming pool. The rooms come in either Deluxe or Suite. They are fairly decent in size, clean and modern. Each room comes with a kitchenette so are suited for people wishing to stay longer term. If you don’t need this it’s probably worthwhile just booking next door at the Sotogrande Hotel next door or the or staying at the older Vista Mar Resort (which is my preference – even if the rooms are older). The higher rooms obviously offer some nice views (depending on what size your room is facing – see video for the views from my room I stayed at). The Deluxe room did have a balcony but it was so tiny and the air conditioning unit took up some of the limited space.
The hotel does not have a restaurant, so you either have to eat next door or at the Vista Mar. Breakfast is taken next door as well. Generally the food was reasonable.
Overall there isn’t anything compelling to stay at this hotel. It’s not a terrible place, just a bit isolated. If I’m going to stay in this area I much stay the Vista Mar Resort. Sure the rooms aren’t as nice, but it feels like I’m more on a vacation. La Mirada is more like a Condotel, not a place you come for a holiday. So overall I would rate La Miranda as average.
