One of the things that is of great importance to me when booking hotels is the breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal for me especially when I am on a business trip amd Royal Mandaya's buffet breakfast is simply awesome! It is comparable to five star hotels in Manila. They have a variety of food selections for breakfast and... More

A perfect vacation when I stayed at the Royal Mandaya Hotel. The rate is so affordable yet the experienced was extraordinary. The food at Kamayo Cafe tastes fantastic. The lobby area is very grandiose. Keep it up Royal Mandaya Hotel.

It was really a nice clean hotel. When we were in our room already, we observed that there was a pigeon flying outside and as we went closer to the window to look at the scenery outside, we observed that there's a slum area at the back of this hotel. It was our first time to see a slum area... More

Hotel pick-up: 5/5 Arrived at the airport, and saw the chauffeur holding up a sign with my name. Quick and friendly, and the van was well-maintained. Great that I was the only passenger. Best of all, they offer this service for only P100 per person per way. Definitely cheaper than hailing a cab, and more comfortable! Location: 4/5 The hotel... More
