Stayed here one night either end of a honeymoon.
This is one massive hotel and so easy to become impersonal. However by staying in a suite and accessing Club Millesime the service was impeccable. We were taken up to level 10 where we were checked in and taken to our room.
The room was a spacious living room with well appointed (but a little worn) desk with a separate large bedroom and huge ensuite.
The only criticism was that our bags took over an hour to arrive despite repeated calls to concierge and Club Millesime desk.
Another disappointment was the boat man was not working for two weeks so we couldn't hit enviro golf balls into the water at sunset - but everything else was as to be expected from a Sofitel.
The spa was average - amazing facilities but the quality of the services for the price paid was not on par.
Selection of restaurants, bars and food was simply amazing!
Room service was very good - the Bulgogi was particularly good. The eggs benedict from room service was ordinary.
The staff whilst in their hundreds were professional, efficient and courteous without being friendly but not that you'd expect anything else from a hotel this size.
Very close proximity to SM Mall of Asia for shopping. Hotel cars and drivers very good!!
All in all we were very impressed with the hotel and would definitely stay here again.
