We booked the hotel and asked them for a transfer and its price,but there was no one expecting us at the airport. When we got there, they knew about us and knew that we had asked to be pocked up but ,, the manager had not ordered anyone to give us the requested service.We were given a room on the top floor, no lift which had an extra bed in it.No shelve, or wardrobe not even hooks.A very large mirror was simply proped again the wall and no space because of the extra bed.

trying to have a shower, no hot water. So we went down the reception and were told that hot water had not reached the top floor. The first breakfast, no jam or honey or marmalade. a tall container of cereal but no milk provided. On the second day, we were given another room next to the pool
and some jam appeared o the breakfast buffet and egg orders were taken. The young lady receptionist,who is the only one at the hotel with some knowledge of English and sorted out all the problems, is the only positive note i. that hotel. On the last day trying to have a shower having been o. the beach, there was simply NO WATER. We left without having a wash. There ares still construction work going on and they are not quite ready. The location is practical but nothing quaint about Bocagrande .

Room Tip: Do not get a room next to the pool unless you are fund of loud music at 8in the morning

The best aspects of this hotel are hands down the location and the staff. Located just two blocks from the beach in bocagrande, and a five minute cab ride to the old city ( about 8 mil pesos), the location was ideal. We enjoyed spending the day in the old city and getting back in time for a dip in the ocean before dinner. Many great restaurants near the hotel. As for the staff, there were always numerous people working that were kind and accommodating. The breakfast is standard but stands out due to the fact you can eat by the pool. Our room itself was quite small with very little by way of traveler essentials ( a place to put your bag, no hooks etc). With that said, we were very pleased with our stay in this new hotel!

I went to the Blue Concept because it said that you could sleep at night. When I am on vacations I like to rest. Unfortunately, I couldn't. In the morning, they put on music early (like 8h00 am) by the swimming pool which you can hear all over the hotel. Even once, they've put some at 6h30 am!!! They said it was for the 'ambiance'!

Other than: the showers! When we got there, there was no hot water for the first days. Then it came back but there was no cold water! The following day, well: no water at all!!!! With my girlfriend trying to wash her hair loaded with shampoo.

That being said, the staff was friendly, the room service is very good. The breakfast in the morning is worth it. It is well located, close to restaurants, super markets, drug stores, casino, etc.

If you can live with a shower that runs funny and early music, the Blue is good to go to. But I wouldn't go back for those 2 reasons. If I would have known, I would have paid a little more and have had a better hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms located on the second floor looked larger ;)
