Lovely rooms. Nice personal touches.
Staff so pleasant and helpful. The staff are what made my stay. The bell boy even lent me some pesos to pay the cabby, which was so kind.
Good room service.
BUT everything smells like a badly cleaned fish tank. The whole place feels very public rather than exclusive. The views are either of the seal-performance grandstand (very public) or of Manila harbour (not as romantic as that sounds).
Breakfast good but dear. Room service is cheaper.
All sorts of service noises through the night and i am a heavy sleeper.
Also i had a coffee on the open air restaurant and looked down at some of the more exclusive rooms. One of them had a boarded up window, so i guess security is a problem even in a swanky hotel.
I probably wouldn't stay here again because of the Ocean Park connection. However if they had another in the chain somewhere else I may, because the team there really try there best for you.
