Pleasant and relaxing stay.
efficient and very courteous staff.
My stay in this hotel was very pleasant and relaxing. I like it that there are few choices of places to eat on the ground floor. A duty free and some stores where i can buy "pasalubong". I will come back and stay in this hotel again.

Truly world class hotel in every way, most friendl
Location, Good value, Most attentive staff
From the moment I checked in till the moment i left, everything was beyond expectation. The hotel location is next to Manila Ocean Park, great for kids. There are 2 types of rooms- bay view rooms and aquarium rooms, both are beautiful and comfortable. The housekeeping staff always responded to my calls within a few minutes. The hotel breakfast buffet is great. The restaurant staff are super-friendly and attentive. All in all, it's a wonderful hotel. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I will definitely return to stay there on my next trip to Manila

Enjoyable, surprising and relaxing.
same as above
Our family's stay was indeed very fulfilling. Firstly, the buffet breakfast was really fantastic, there was a good spread of food to choose from. The person from the restaurant (Makan) who served us was very accomodating and helpful. Secondly, the aqua room was fun. My kids were truly amazed to see lots of fishes swimming! Lastly, the friendly staff.

Rather uninspiring
Nothing
I found the stay rather drab. Biggest disappointment was that an event was held on the 15th February 2014 and the hotel staff only sent out messages informing the guests the day before. Returning to the hotel after a personal event was made impossible due to the chaotic traffic and human jam. Roads were inaccessible from 3am which contributed to a night spent in another hotel due to this event. It was utterly disappointing and we had get a room stay at another hotel due to this inconvenience. The buffet bkfast was also not well stocked and most of the dishes were not refilled 45mins before closing time. The service staff were commendable by offering to serve us the food from whatever was left. The Oceanarium also contributed to the noise and confusion. The swimming pool was located outside the hotel along the general entrance to the ticketing counter of the oceanarium and hotel entrance. To complicate matters, it was only open from 8am - 5pm. The only good side from this encounter was the coffee outlet (Green Bean). Apart from that, I see no exception or outstanding points of this hotel. Personally I will not recommend anyone who plan to stay there.

it was good,
the massage was great! ; the staff were friendly ; the manager on duty was very helpful to us since we had a little incident
We stayed in the aquaroom - it was nice my daughter love it but the room was small and the selection of food for room service is very limited. But the massage in the spa was great i love it , even my 4 year old daughter love it , almost all of the staff were friendly and my thanks to the manager on duty that help us when my niece had an accident and cut her chin and need to be brought to the hospital for stiches , she even call my sister in law to ask if we need to be fetch up from the hospital since there was a big religious event going on that day.buffet breakfast was just ok theres still more room for improvement specially for the staff . Still wanna stay in this hotel in the near future

Well furnished room with professional staff
Clean room, professional and friendly staff and the hotel is extremely large
The hotel is so much bigger than we thought because it comprises not only the hotel but the shopping malls, restaurants and an aquarium. The staff is also very professional and friendly. The place is also well furnished and it feels very comfortable staying there. But the bad thing is the hotel location is ok but not very convenient. There's nothing you can do in the hotel nearby so we can only have to use the hotel facilities.

Not worth it
Fish, staff
The fish and staff were cool but that was it. From the moment we checked in, we had problems with the room and it just got worse. This hotel seemed over 20 years old a bit rundown. The lobby and hallways were nice but it didn't extend into the aqua rooms. We checked in and found strong paint fumes coming out of the AC unit so we could not run the air due to the fact that we were getting headaches. Our room was hot and stuffy all night. It was after midnight when we checked in and after unpacking, it didn't make sense to change rooms. We were awoken by loud noises in the hall all night (the walls are paper thin), lights from people above us checking on the fish, the fishtank lights turning on at 5:30am and again, lots of hallway noise as people awoke for breakfast. You could hear EVERYTHING in the halls from our room. The phone would not work and the toilet did not flush. We booked a metered cab from the hotel because their own cab prices were super high and once we were dropped off at our destination, we still had to pay 150pesos on top of the cab fare so the hotel still got their cut. This was not told to us when we got in the cab or we would have walked the 5 minutes and hailed our own taxi. I thought this was deceptive. My husband and I were really looking forward to a pampered night in a nice place and we were VERY disappointed. I've stayed in rooms that were WAY nicer than this. I told the front desk (the command center) about the problems we encountered and they did nothing for us. We will NOT be staying here again nor will we recommend it to anyone we know. The coffee shop near the front door is nice though and the owner is very friendly and personable.

Everything was closed, not fun but very clean
restaurants and shopping in the hotel
Everything was closed so we didn't get the full experience. it was a little farther away from any nightlife so be prepared to spend a lot on taxis.
