Hotel With Good Location & Friendly Staffs”

01) Location, 02) Friendly staffs, 03) Free car parking.

I was in Tarlac from 30 Jan 15 to 03 Feb 15. Things I like about La Maja Rica are it's location, friendly staffs, good tasty food (room service), price, cleanliness & security, just to name a few. My stay there was fantastic because it was my first time to Tarlac. One thing that did not work well with me was the air conditioning which broke down on my last night there (could be coincidental) but the staffs fixed it in a short time. I will go back again to this hotel when I visit Tarlac again. Good job LMR Hotel. Thank you.

relaxing and very friendly ”

staff , food, prices

this is my second visit to the la maja rica hotel , the staff are so very friendly, helpful and attentive , always have a smile and so polite ,the food is excellent and the drinks are varied, the prices are great , not expensive , its centrally located in tarlac, very near the bus terminal, there are always the local tricycles on hand outside the hotel for local travel and very cheap , near the big SM mall, also close to some nice restaurants,on foot,the swimming pool is not all that big but it really does need to be cleaned on a regular basis, when I used it, it was very dirty, the same the last time I stayed there, it seems to be an on going problem which is a pity as its set in nice and relaxing surroundings , its something managaement are going to have to sort out as this spoils the enjoyment of the outside area, the rooms are big and spacious and clean, but are very basic,they need renovating to be honest , same with the bathrooms there are no safety deposit boxes in the rooms, no irons, but you can request one from reception,there are no fridges in rooms, , but again you can request one to be put in at additional cost 200 peso per night,wifi in rooms very poor, but work ok at poolside /bar area/ recepton, , all in all I would definitely stay here again because of the very friendly and helpful staff, lovely food and prices and location,it is a lovely hotel, just the rooms need to be renovated though

Spacious room, friendly staff”

We booked at La Maja Rica because a relative from abroad was staying here and her party was held here too. I booked the Double Room, it was spacious and neat. Although it was outdated, we had a nice stay. There is a hot water. The A/C is not working properly but we had nice sleep. By the way, the room has a electric fan, so I think there will be no problem if its hot. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Location of the hotel is accessible to a restaurant and mini grocery. It is near also at SM Tarlac and Robinson. Over all stay is good.

Just Ok”

We go to Tarlac every now and then and this the 3rd hotel that we've tried and so far it's our least favorite. We’re a couple during our previous trips, but since our 7-yr old niece was with us, La Maja Rica was our best choice because of the pool. It’s the lowest-priced among the hotels we’ve tried so I guess I shouldn’t have expected too much. Our rooms were big, but doesn’t seem to be thoroughly cleaned as there were food residues on the table (seemed like dried ketchup) and even on the chair, then hair in the sink. Water from the faucet smell rusty and my parent's room (triple) even had broken pipes under the bathroom sink so water would drip on the floor. Despite being old, efforts of being upgraded were obvious though thru the newer linens, bidet and powered-doorlocks. We also appreciated their fluffy pillows. Breakfast was ok, but they only provide for 1 person. They said that breakfast is dependent literally on the number of beds in the room, even if it’s double.

Just Ok”

Our biggest disappointment was the pool because it was really cloudy and during our overnight stay, the only effort they made was to scoop out the leaves, but did not change the water. Despite that, kids enjoyed swimming but we did not let our niece swim, though because it was obviously dirty. WiFi was quite slow but at least it was always there. The staff are not the friendliest, though especially at the dining area. I think their understaffed during breakfast (only 3 waiters during our stay), so expect a really slow service, frowning staff and a dirty table if you have your breakfast a little late (we had ours around 9am). If you are on a budget and needs somewhere to sleep, this is okay. You have to know as well that it’s along the highway so vehicle noises are inevitable. Our stay wasn't really bad, but on our next Tarlac trip, La Maja Rica wouldn’t be our choice anymore and would rather stay in the other 2 hotels we’ve tried. They have a new building with newer rooms. Perhaps life is better there?

We stayed one night at La Maja Rica. From the moment we arrived until the next day we travelled on it was really nice and comfortable to stay here. It is worth to stop here if you just want a break, going up north or coming back to the south.

Worth for the money but not stellar”

Pros: * Room is big (availed Triple Sharing) * Breakfast served is buffet style * Near SM Tarlac and is easy to locate Cons: * AC takes a long time to cool * Cable TV with limited channels * Pool water is hot in the afternoon cuz there's no flowing water * Room service of the Resto is slow * No umbrellas in the lobby , it was raining so hard during the night we stayed and they have no umbrellas to offer visitors who will just grab something from the parking area.

The place was very convenient, it's just a tricycle/jeep away from SM Tarlac and Kart City. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly. I wasn't sure how to get to the tourist spot places in Tarlac and the staff were nice enough to give me instructions and even helped me cross the road!

location, service, security

Great place to stay in tarlac city. Close to town center. The only complaint was the room we had was smelly (musty) and bathroom needed work. Excellent value for the money though. Convenient dining and pool (we did not use). Looks like they are adding a new section of the hotel (Feb 2015), so room quality will get better if they finish it. Could easily be 4 + star then.

Nice family type hotel”

Not too many hotels to choose from in Tarlac and finally decided on this one. The room size is HUGE but dated. I was on the second floor facing the street and did not hear all the noise some of the previous reviews gave. It was not too loud that prevented me from going to sleep whenever I wanted. Limited cable channels but the wifi was the best I have experienced in any hotel I have stayed in the Philippines. The facilities were limited as the hotel has a decent size pool next to their dining/bar facility. All-in-all I would stay here again.

Renovation partly succesfull”

Location, close to SM shopping Mall, easy access public transport.

I would define my stay at La Maja Rica as moderate due to the partly finished renovation. They did a wonderfull job by repainting all the rooms BUT excluded the bathroom from any changes. The taps, shower and furniture are very old and done. It is such a pity for such a nice building. The bathroom as a whole needs an urgent overhaul. The staff is allright and helpfull . Brakfast takes some time to serve, so keep this in mind if you need to take some scheduled transport.

Pool, Karaoke & Live Music

I enjoyed the stay in this lovely and fair priced hotel. It seems the biggest in Tarlac. Rooms are clean, service is friendly, and there are many shopping and eating possibilities nearby (1-3 minute foot walk). Rooms have the main window to the inside, with pool view (at the ground floor), so you won't hear traffic from the main road. The pool is a bit small though. But we will definitely go again.
