It has a full sized mirror and i was not expecting that the bathroom has a bath tub so that is a plus. Hair dryer, laundry bags and... More

Location: Just right at the back of Gaisano Country Mall. It's quite a surprise to see this garden hotel in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the metro. Ambience: Classic and cozy. Stayed in their Premier Gardenside room at P3,399/night. They do have cheaper rooms but during my stay they were fully booked and the Gardenside was the... More

The location of the hotel is just behind a mall with plenty of low to medium priced restaurants and grocery. It is just a bit far from the main road but you can ask the front desk for taxi. Food in the hotel is ok. Rooms are spacious, 3 people can easily fit. Rooms are a bit old though but... More

I observed that some are bringing their breakfast to conference venues but this guy ,whom I don't know if the manager of the dining area, said I am not allowed to bring the food outside. I just felt embarrassed because some people are looking at me. We just ate the food we are supposed to bring in the conference venue.

My family stayed at this hotel and we mostly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are looking pretty tired, the air conditioning works but is very loud, and the playground is actually just a small play structure. The biggest problem for the family was the wifi, which is limited to a maximum of two devices per room and which drops every... More

Nice place, grounds are well kept, good for families. They held weddings each day I was there, so there were always a lot of people around. Staff was friendly and did a good job. If you were looking for more active places try the resorts on Mactan. ITs an older resort and a little noisy from kids and activities. Reminds... More
