We picked this place as we're travelling with our young children (4 and 6 yrs) - from previous experience, a haven away from the bustle of an Asian city is a must.
We booked late and so took a Junior Suite to which they added an extra single bed (the day bed was made up as the final bed). The girls loved having their own beds insteading of having to share and were presented with their own teddie bears to keep when we checked in which was a cute touch.
The design of White Masion is beautiful, with lovely high ceilings and all very chic. The pool is compact but pleasant and we took tea out there while the kids splashed about for an hour. The restaurant is great - fab pastries and a few other breakfast options - we also had dinner one night when we'd had enough of the city, which was also good.
The staff were helpful and considerate - we stored some of our purchases with them once we headed off to the coast and picked up when we returned, all with no bother.
My only cons would be the shower in both rooms we stayed in had to be handheld - the wall mounting didn't allow for the direction to be adjusted and faced directly out over our heads. And no net curtains / blinds meant that when we opened our curtains we can face to face with the neighbours - and on our last night the room we were in caught the afternoon sun and so we either had to suffer with sun in our eyes or close the curtains entirely. Small things but at this price it' the small things that really count.
This being our first time as a family in PP I have nothing to compare, but for us four it was a great choice. They are no doubt cheaper places out there, but it was a nice treat.
