Manila,s best hotel
A bit far from Markarti etc but if someone has the time to spend in some traffic this is Manila,s best hotel, the pool is great, the food outlets outstanding. The executive club is one of the best anywhere in the world.

Not as accommodating as other hotels
First, I had a few frustrations with this hotel: There was a mistake in my booking which ended up costing me more. Most hotels would just fix this kind of thing for free but here they wouldn't even give me the equal rate to if they mistake hadn't been there. So my front-desk experience was frustrating. The base room price is OK but they will charge you for everything and are a little pushy with it (sitting at the pool loungers they will try to sell you souvenirs, at dinner they will come to your table to sell you boxes of cookies etc). On the positive side the hotel is nice but it gets crowded at weekends. It doesn't compare to a great out of town resort but for Metro Manila it's a decent alternative. Spiral buffet is a great buffet but the prices can get a bit crazy ($60+ per person). If front-desk had managed to fix a small mistake for free or at least in-line with published rates my rating would be higher.

Great Staffs
Staffs are so friendly, especially those in frontdesk. A special birthday cake was given to my daughter and husband for their birthdays (we were there for an advance celebration). Will definitely visit this place again.
