I had a day to kill between a trip to the islands and my flight from Cebu. I wanted a big, modern, clean hotel to counteract my 10 days of staying on remote islands with no plumbing, and I found it at Quest.
It was so nice to get into an elevator and head up to a large, spacious, well appointed room. Once I entered my room, I didn't want to leave. The bed was very comfortable and everything else was good. No complaints.
My only hang up was the the gym is somewhere in the car park. To get access as a hotel guest, you have to get some validation paper from your front desk, take it to the front desk of the residences and have them approve you, then you walk through the labyrinth of the parking garage to this little room where you have a small gym. Oh, and you have to do this bureaucracy every time you want to go back to the gym.
Walking 5 minutes (under the overpass) you can reach the huge Ayala Centre. I spent hours and hours there escaping the heat, shopping for everything I wanted and eating some tasty foreign foods (for many westerners like myself, you can only eat so much white rice before you just can't take it anymore, sometimes you just want a burrito or a pizza. After a few weeks, you don't care what that says about you.)
Same comment goes for the hotel. Don't hate yourself because you're not staying in an 'authentic', 'local', place. Sometimes you need a break from nipa huts with no running water. Well, look no further. Come to Quest, clean yourself up, eat some good food, drink coffee that's not instant, and then get back out there and explore all the Philippines has to offer.
