I initially booked three nights here. As the tyfoon Yolanda was forecasted I cancelled my flight to Boracay and decided to enhance my stay at this hotel for safety reasons. I cannot praise the help of the two concierges Manuel Jr. (chief concierge) and Ray high enough. They did a tremendous job organizing everything including re-arranging of flights, rebooking hotels, etc. to make my stay as relaxed and smooth as it could be. So at the end I made of my initial 3 night stay a 7 night stay and do not regret this at all! Still went to Boracay later on when everything was safe again.
My room was well equiped and very modern, given the fact that the opening of the hotel was in December 2012. Comfy bed and a very handy control device to steer light, ac, alarm clock, etc. with it. Nice equiped mini bar, flat screen tv, marble bathroom with loads of mirrors and a refreshing rainforest shower.
All the saff members were very friendly, professional, efficient and there was nothing too much to ask for. The breakfast buffet was all about top quality. Even though in some hotels they have even a wider range of dishes, it didn't bothered me, as everything which was there was of the finest quality. Perfect muesli, fruits, asian corner with dumplings, sushi, beef, fresh honey and an absolute perfect espresso.
Also the hotel's facilities were absolutely great. Modern outstanding gym, big pool with sea water, steam bath and a nice SPA. You have also direct access to the Fairmont hotel which is in the same building. So you can walk to the Writer's bar or the Longbar to get the famous Singapore Sling or try the Makati Deluxe Sling :-)
Security is on a very high standard. So nothing at all to worry about. Another great thing of course was the location. Greenbelt shopping mall is just across the street. It's a nicely done park area in the middle of Makati with plenty of shops including high end brands like Hermes, etc. and outdoor dinging facilities and bars. So for a first-time visitor of Manila it was the right decision for me to stay here, as everything was so convenient. Should you still want to explore other areas, no problem. You can ask the hotel to provide you a driver (safest option) or you can go with a public cab.
