Arrived at noon had to wait for a room, the person before us got taken to his room and rejected it because it was to small, then our room was ready straight away, we suspect the rejected room but as we were only staying two nights we accepted it, the room was not user friendly, the colors in the rooms which were bright oranges, greens etc with white seemed very 70's, the bathroom was very good big with a great shower. We had dinner in the restaurant were breakfast is served and it was a good meal with great service, we went up to the roof bar and found that had a restaurant up there so booked for the next day for 7pm, We couldn't get on our table and by the time we did the thunderstorm arrived, down to the conference room as the restaurant below had a private function, ended in disaster eventually get the food the starter and the main brought together, they took the main away then we find the starter is cold, so taken away and supposedly redone came back greasy and only warm so paid for the drinks that we had just got and walked out, really bad experience. The university and other colleges are around the area so we found lots and lots of students around so finding seating in restaurants is not easy and they stay for a long time, walking the fort wall was good, if we went back to Manila we would not stay here again.
