My family decided to stay a night in Clarkfield Pampanga. We chose Widus hotel, it had the least 'worse' review from all the hotels inside Clark. :) Not a bad choice I would say. The hotel was good, room was clean except for the damp, funky smelling bathroom. It was not fresh at all, maybe the humidity and wetness from the flooring caused this. Oh well, after few sprays of IPA it was okay. :)
We enjoyed the swimming pool, and there was a small slide that made it more fun. We ordered lunch by the pool, food selection was limited and the taste was average, but pricey. Imagine $3 for a can of Coke? Whoa... as if I was staying in a 5-star hotel in Makati. It's good Adrian who served us was excellent, it compensated the over-priced meal that we had. :)
Breakfast selection was good, except for the bacon and the croissant which tasted like a week old. But again, the good staff service made the dining experience pleasant.
I hated the wifi connection on my room. When I called it in the Technician told me my room location was not good. Hello?... does that mean I should have brought my own router? :) Paying $140/nite, they should at least ensure wifi connection is stable in all areas, it's part of the ammenities that they promote anyway.
Overall, we had fun and the hotel staff was accomodating. I hope they improve on their F&B though, good thing you have a lot of places to dine inside Clark.
I'd come back here.. Clarkfield Pampanga drive is excellent for a quick family bonding.
