Marco Polo Cebu: Stay-cation to the Hilt

I usually create an activity-packed itinerary because I wanna see everything. I always think I may never get to go back to this place so might as well try my darndest to do it all, even if it means tiring myself out. And for all those times, I really did enjoy tremendously, learned and discovered a lot. BUT. I learned that sometimes, a relaxing trip is also worth every penny. Our body, soul and mind also need this kind of lovin’. <3

This is probably the first time I appreciated the value of staycation. I used to turn up my nose at the people who I thought turned up their noses at budget travelers. Now I got to see the other side a teeny weeny bit, and I must say, I kind of understand them better now. I enjoyed it so much that I had another stay-cation after this. (No, I’m not throwing in the towel at budget traveling because it still is an altogether different kind of happiness).

For the itinerary that I did not follow (but may be useful for your Cebu travel planning), click here. Photos of semi-city tour + food trip are here.

Anyway, here are the Marco Polo photos. I loved everything – the room, the shuttle service, the pleasant and polite staff, the breakfast buffet (so worth it!), the pool, and yes even the location. I don’t mind working from this place, any day. 🙂
