Breakfast
Not going back to Sofitel. Check in took 45 minutes. Lady at the front desk charged 10,000 for the add on breakfast despite seeing and having been told of the total number of guests. Took her a while to reverse. Aside from the nice bed, the room was I adequately designed for one that claims to be a luxury hotel. The tv stand was sub par and the bathroom was in tiles as opposed to the usual marble/granite. After the obscene amount of money charged for breakfast, we had to line up for 30 minutes to get seated. In the room there is a notice that says we must check out at the appointed time or we'll have to pay 1,000 php extra per hour. Such a tacky sign for a 'luxury hotel'. They should pay me 1000php for the full hour it took for them to process our check out despite having informed the staff ahead of time to check the room because we are on our way down for check out.

Not worth the expensive cost
It is close to the Ocean, nice view of Manila Bay. The Spa was great, we enjoyed the heated pool, the steam room and sauna room.
The stay was not worth it. The room was small, the aircon was not working for the first few hours of our stay. We have to call housekeeping multiple times. The food at Spiral was just okay, nothing extraordinary.

Wonderful Stay
Good breakfast; nice view of the ocean; good location
The location is wonderful! My room is a good size room and clean; the staff are friendly and attentive. Although the breakfast buffet is expensive it's actually worth it if you have a big appetite. I didn't utilized the pool but I enjoyed watching the Manila bay sunset while lounging at the outdoor bar. Far from public transport but they do have shuttles (for a fee). The hotel is perfect for a weekend get away.

swimmung pool, sunset view
Horrible. Food was of low quality. Served unpleasant fruits, after my Mom and son complained of food poisoning from the lunch served in the hotel.
