We stayed at Hotel H2O for 3 days and 2 nights. The interior of the hotel is clean and elegant looking.
Of those days, we stayed in an Aqua room supreme where you get to see a school of fish while you fall to sleep. It was indeed, a very nice room. Ofcourse, it's extraordinary as we dont have that anywhere else in the Philippines (inform me if I'm wrong). The room was clean, and you can see from the fixes that the room interior is elegantly designed. As it is a new hotel, you dont get to smell old carpets or smokey walls unlike many others.
The air-conditioning is perfectly fine, and the colorful fishes swimming made the entire stay more relaxing.
The service is okay, not as inviting as I expected, but the staff are pleasant and nice.
There are a few things I didnt like, however. One is the wifi which gets to disconnect often. Second is that when the park closes, the hotel gets dark making it look as if it's zombie infested. There's not much to do at night. And the first night we stayed there, we can't even use the pool because there is a private party going on.
My suggestion is to not close the entire liquid lounge for guests. Keep atleast an area open, because Hotel H2O is located in an isolated place.. No walking-distant bars.. And to go out at night in the area is kind of dangerous.
All in all, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Good food at MakanMakan, nice relaxing rooms, perfect for an after work escape.
