A local friend of mine suggested that we stay at Nandana because according to her, it's new and the beachfront location is good. Considering that we were going to be out partying every night in between stations 1 and 2, Hotel Location was convenient.
Arrived at 10am, was greeted with welcome drinks at the lobby and knowing that hotels would charge extra for early check-ins, I didn't bother to ask but the front desk staff noticed that we looked exhausted from traveling and offered to check us in early. That's great hotel service!!
Pleased with our Deluxe Room on the 3rd floor which was huge, 2 double-size beds, Linens were soft and clean, Luxurious modern design and toilet had a Bidet, a/c was quiet, all that i expected from a 4 star hotel resort. Balcony was awesome because I smoke and my travel buddy doesn't.
Atrium design for the main building so interior air circulation was good. The indoor pool looked great at the center of the hotel but I didn't get to use it during my stay though. New Pool so it was clean.
Breakfast buffet was part of my room package and was good but could use more selection and variety like more Fruit Juice or bread. The Breakfast Area was decorated well and service was always good. Oh and you could see the ocean from the windows, nice.
Was looking for a Fitness center but didn't open it yet same with their in-hotel spa. Saw some Jacuzzi's on the premier room floor but i think it wasn't ready for use yet. No problem.
Heard from one of the staff that the hotel is still on their soft opening and they plan to do the Grand opening by November 2012.
Ok understood and again no problem on the lack of facilities ready for use.
First night there, we were walking back at 3am and before going to our rooms, we decided to go for a quick dip, but had no place for our stuff so we asked one of the hotel night security guard if we could leave it with him. He said sure and took it to the lobby staff and left it there. I was pissed because I left it with him, not the lobby staff.
He came back, I was about to give him a piece of my mind but he spoke first by saying in Filipino (translation) "sir, it's better I leave it with the staff inside so that I may instead escort and watch out for your group while you swim nearby. Security sir"
He actually did escort us and waited. Wow, Awesome service. Clap clap clap.
It went great for the rest of our 3 nights stay here. Great and Friendly Staff who always had the guest's comfort and needs in mind.
New Hotel on a soft opening so they do have need for improvement but my overall stay was great thanks to the great customer service and care from their staff, the nice facilities and fancy decor.
Would I stay here again? YES of course!!
Thank you team NANDANA for the great stay!
