We were hit badly by the enormous advertisements of Solaire so we were one of those who visited during the opening. The kids were so excited for we all thought that it is like Resorts' World Manila where kids do have a space of "their own", shopping and dining areas. We were allowed entrance but the kids were off-limits in A LOT OF AREAS. They do not have a swimming pool yet so we decided to leave and have our staycation elsewhere. It is indeed a world-class casino, just that. Lesson learned: be wary of advertisements.

First thing I thought when we entered the lobby, hmm just typical, same as the others. Not until when we saw the way to the VIP game area; whoa, Are we in Las Vegas? We wander around and saw some fine dining outlets, and the interior design, world-class. Next stop, we'll try to stay and experience how really the game has changed. :)

I was there on a Sunday afternoon.

Most of the slot machines were being played while there were a reasonable number of the gaming tables were occupied.

The casino is very well organised with staff constantly circulating.

Restaurants are expensive but the food court is quite reasonably priced with a good beef burger available from Americano for P220.

Although this casino has only been open for one month, it already seems popular. I saw small numbers of foreigners but locals are the main patrons which is not surprising.

You'll juz be mesmerized by its Grandioso Lobby with big chandeliers hanging on. They have the newest slot machines available. Free drinks if you're playing on a table or on slot machine. Very courteous and warm staff. Their foodcourt consists of their very own few signature stalls w/c is quite pricey. The minimum amount you can dine is work P300.

Ordinary guest/ visitors even if you're a Solaire member can only roam around the Ground floor or the lobby itself. Other floors and some elegant corners are just for VIP. And that makes it an unfriendly atmosphere despite having courteous staff.

No theatre or Cinema! Not much to miss...

Very different from Resorts World Manila, who has many dining out to choose from. With Performing Arts Theatre & Newport Cinemas. Plus, their shopping stalls. And you can go almost every floor & every corner.

'Sorry, can't help to compare the two.

For the well-traveled, Solaire might come across as ordinary - as in "global ordinary". The interiors are great and top notch.

We've tried Finestra - the Italian restaurant, and the food was great. For Manila standard, it is quite pricey but you would probably spend a fortune to get the same level of food quality and ambiance in say Singapore, Hong Kong, London or New York.

Right now, there's not much to do aside from gaming and eating. It is a casino/resort (for now) - no pretensions there that it is a retail destination whatsoever.

Overall, it is a breath of fresh air to have the likes of Solaire right here in Manila.
