i was at h2o with my family twice this year since i got a good deal from ensogo. the aqua rooms were fascinating. we stayed at aqua supreme last august and at a premiere suite (still with aquarium walls) just this october.
the service needs improvement though. we had to wait for at least 30 minutes to check in and the last time we were there, they had a problem with my reservation. although we were given a free upgrade, they initially tried to get us to agree to settle to a sea view room even if i reiterated that the reason i was back there was because of the aquarium walls.
the hotel is part of manila ocean park and entrance to the hotel was disappointing since it they do not have a separate access for hotel guests. (i think they are already working on an annex)
food was just okay. nothing special. plus you can choose to eat at a number of restaurants at the ground floor.
pool was open to public for a fee. good thing my son was content with playing in the tub.
published rates were not reasonable.
