The day after we had our Bohol Contryside Tour, we went to Cebu by riding the SuperCat ferry and then taking a cab from Cebu Pier to Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort & Spa in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort & Spa Cebu is relatively new as it opened only in 2009. Imperial Palace has “557 elegantly furnished rooms including 128 deluxe rooms, 372 suites, 9 spa suite rooms and 48 pool villas.”

We couldn’t help but get excited about where we would be staying for two nights. It was a really nice room, and the king-sized bed looked inviting!

Fresh from Bohol!

We were billeted at Room 731. It’s a Deluxe Room with a garden view. The room is good for three adults, but there were four us who checked in (three adults and one child), so we had to pay an extra charge of Php2000 per night for our son. We stayed at Imperial Palace for two nights.

Guests have a wide choice of food at Imperial Palace because there are 8 restaurants inside. They are as follows: Cheon San Chinese Restaurant, Familia Restaurant, Maru Korean Restaurant, Coral Seaside Restaurant, Delmar Lobby Lounge, Café Amiga, Aqus Pool & Island Bar and Bel Ami Karaoke.

At Café Amiga

We had dinner at Café Amiga during our first night at Imperial Palace. Café Amiga offers Filipino, Thai, Southeast Asian, international and continental cuisines. They have seafood and grill sections, pasta, sandwiches and salads. Our dinner was delicious! See my post on this in my food blog Delight My Appetite.

At Familia Restaurant

We had our buffet breakfast at Familia Restaurant. Familia Restaurant is Imperial Palace’s main restaurant that offers a wide array of breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet. There are four (4) open food stations at Familia Restaurant, namely: Japanese, Western, Oriental and a cold buffet and dessert island station. Each food station has its own specialized chefs.

Aqus Pool & Island Bar

The Aqus Pool & Island Bar is for guests who wish to have a light snack or cold drinks while swimming. We ordered Strawberry Shake here upon my son’s request. I was hesitant to buy because hotel food is expensive, but when I took a sip of the little boy’s strawberry shake, I fell in love! It was yummy! The little boy enjoyed it, too.


Imperial Palace’s Waterpark is is Cebu’s one and only waterpark designed by the Dream Park International USA. Our almost-6-year-old son enjoyed this the most.

We didn’t have a day tour at Cebu City, but our stay at Imperial Palace Waterpark & Spa is more than enough. We really had a fun, relaxing and pleasant vacation there albeit a short one.

Our short vacation would have been even greater if we had not dipped our camera in seawater. This prevented us from taking more photos of us in this lovely place.

  1. “Fresh from Bohol” on your shirt Mommy made me smile because it reminded me of an aunt from Bohol who is a great cook. Hurray to vacations! You all look great.

  2. Looks like a really nice place and it seems your family enjoyed the stay. The Familia Restaurant does serve really great food. It’s one of the good restaurants in Cebu.

  3. Oh I haven’t heard of this hotel until now! It looks so relaxing and the rooms are so pretty. I should keep this in mind the next time I’m in Cebu.
