Not as expected
Pool, breakfast and public facilities
The common areas were great. They have a large and beautiful pool that can accommodate anyone. We experienced problems in our room (which was a very nice room) with our AC unit leaking water onto the carpet which also created an odor that we did not appreciate. We were transferred to another room 36 hours later which had an uncomfortable bed and a different AC problem (it mad a lot of noise periodically). As for prices, this hotel is not for anyone on a budget. Local beers cost 200 pesos and the food was very expensive. What you are paying for is the public facilities and the overwhelming amount of employees on the grounds. I think it is overpriced overall. This is a third world country and first world priced hotel.

comfortable stay
friendly staff, good desigh , swimming pool
Enjoyed the bars, garden and swimming pool. My stay was generally satisfied. No free WIFI, BREAKFAST and airport transfer are NOT INCLUDED.There are therefore a lot of additional fees. It is not easy in walking distance to find local restaurants and shopping centers.

it wasn't what i was expecting otherwise good stay
great pool, amazing comfortable bed, clean rooms
upon entering the room, i did not expect it to be somewhat a little outdated. probably because of the huge dark furnitures. the room was probably one of the most spacious i have been in. overall i felt the room was normal nothing out of the ordinary. what really stood out the most was the bed since it was incredibly soft, clean and comfortable never wanted to leave it till checkout time! clean bathrooms and a great view of manila bay

wonderful stay
neat, room size, ambiance, manila bay view
The hotel was excellent, i love how huge the rooms are and the manila bay view was exceptional. However, i noticed that the crew were not well informed about the buffet prices and what comes with it... We were lounging then at the sunset bar, and we were told that the buffet at spiral comes with free drinks. Without batting an eyelash off we go to spiral and ordered wine, one glass after another. Imagine our shock when we got the bill and noticed that the wines were priced at P720 per seems that the crew were not really informed of the prices from the other restaurants aside from the restaurants they were assigned in... so always ask.. i know better next time

large rooms, nice view, relaxing stay
i love the big rooms and the beach view....bringing food from outside is not allowed, so we were forced to avail of their room service... food and drinks were a little pricey but no surprise given its a luxury hotel

5 Star Prize, 3rd Class Service
Hello? Everyone knows how super luxury Sofitel is.
Internet charges is USD20 per day but the connection is slow like turtle. No typhoon, no bad weather. So it's confirm bad line. Spa, forget about it. Not worth the price trying.

Comfortable for a night of transit
Near airport, bug room, good staff
It is a short stay as I was transiting for another flight. They won't give Internet for free so hats a bummer
