I stayed 4 nights in this hotel during Sinulog.The hotel is lovcted in a beautiful park with swimming pool, just round the corner from the Country Mall and many shops and restaurants although it is advised that you take a taxi to the city center (10 minutes) to experience a greater range of good restaurants and shopping malls.
The room was old-fashioned and with a noisy A/Cbut with ensuite bathroom was adequate. Reception staff were not helpful and the information on the website was not accurate (free water applied for only the first day and the free shuttle to the shopping mall did not exist.).
I tried the restaurant for dinner and the setting next to the swimming pool wasfine but most of the menu was not available (no steak, no onion soup, only chicken was offered). Breakfast the day after was fine but I got an omelette that was raw inside and gave me a severe stomach problem that tied me to the hotel room all the weekend (thank goodness for Imodium that I had to take every few hours).
I had a business meeting with a colleague using the restaurant facilities and this functioned well.
But this hotel really needs renovation and the staff need to be more customer-friendly. It's OK if you have kids who want to have fun in the pool but otherwise I think there must be far better hotels in the city centre.
