Best room design for a family!
Stayed in a premier suite. Its almost like 2 rooms in one without the hassle of an adjoining door and compromising convenience or acoustics. Can be appropriately private and united at the same time. There are 2 huge bathrooms - one with a very nice tub and both with rainshowers; 2 flat screen tvs in both areas yet you can watch without being bothered by either one. 2 airconditioning units with separate controls. Has a Queen Bed in one and a sofa bed with several chairs in the other. Floor to ceiling view of the Manila Bay and nice blockout customised curtains.
Food at makan makan is not memorable but the service is great. In particular, randy made sure we got all that we needed for a perfect experience. It was also great that you had easy access to where the action is - ocean park amenities.
What I didnt like was the pool. It wasn't conducive to swimming as it almost shared water with the sea lion show. I also did not like the long walk to reception both from the rooms and from parking. There are 2 other receiving areas and several maneuvers before you get to the actual hotel. While waiting at the lobby during checkout, we were asked by a hotel personnel what we were doing there. That was kinda rude. Luckily it was our last few moments in the hotel that he ruined. Reception desk also almost always took forever before answering the phone.
All in all it was great. Will go back but not during the rainy season. I assume it would be scary staying in a hotel on stilts during a storm.
