Entire staff great but one employee went the extra mile to make my family's stay outstanding. I believe his name is Chambers. Please thank him on behalf of the Saxon family.

Worth it
We enjoyed the stay. The pool area was great. The staff were very accomodating and courteous. Just some suggestions: 1. Carpet needs to be changed more often. 2. The sink faucet was hard to open. It had a lot of play but is too tight to open. You should replace it. 3. There are no plastic bags for used feminine napkins. 4. The shower area needs more safety handrails and non-slip strips on the floor. 5. The shampoo and shower gel seems diluted and feels cheap.

Great place to stay if attending PICC events
Truly a 5-star hotel in its class. The room that I got was very satisfactory, only that it was starting to show its age. The service was excellent! And the place is beautifully situated near the famous Manila Bay. :)

The room was very clean. Amenities were abundant and replenished as needed. Food choices at the buffet were almost endless!

Ok stay, but maybe i was just expecting too much
Slightly disappointed as i had high hopes for my stay. Bed is super comfy but padding tends to slide off the bed cushion. Room had a funky heavy smell to it, maybe because the hotel is quite old. Wasnt able to try out the buffet, which wouldve made the stay a lot better overall. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Allowed us to check in as early as 12pm. Overall it was an ok overnight stay
