This was my third trip to the Phillipines and I was looking for another hotel. I chose the Bellagio because of its location. We always seemed to end up at Cafe' Cubana underneath the Bellagio anyhow so it was an easy choice. Other than that, the location is very central to lots of the Makati region. P.Burgos Street is always on the move 24 hours so it has some excitement all the time. Cafe' Cubana is a great open aired bar and food place. By the way..the food is terrific.
The hotel itself surprised me because I read some of the Trip Advisor reviews from the past and I did not discover the negatives some people offered in their reviews. The front desk staff, not only looked lovely but were equally nice to talk to. So friendly and helpful. No complaints from me there. The young men who assisted the pretty girls behind reception, were so polite and very helpful.
The previous two trips I stopped over in Makati City, in other hotels became awkward for us as our flight arrived in Manila 0545 am, so we are delivered to hotels very early in the morning. My two previous stays made us wait until 2.00pm to get into a room. Not at the Bellagio. They said they realised we would be tired at that time of the day after a long flight, then put in our rooms immediately. My mate and I were so happy...thank you staff at the Bellagio.
I did find the hotel showers were badly plumbed and I had a flood in my unit everytime I showered. Not a problem. The mini bar is certainly expensive and one to watch out for but so are many hotels around the world.
The staff at the Cafe' Cubana are fantastic and so nice too. Drinks and food are first class and not expensive.
Would I stay at the Royal Bellagio again?.....you betcha. I say go and enjoy.
