The Aqua Rooms are really nice! It is quite an experience to watch different tropical fish swim past. I thought each room would have individual aquariums, so it would just be the same fish over and over. Actually it is one long aquarium spanning across all the aqua rooms. We really enjoyed sitting in front of the aquarium watching the different fish swim past! If you are uncomfortable with fishy eyes watching you change, there is a remote control which lowers a screen to cover the aquarium. The slight drawback is the glass toilet..The door and walls have frosted glass from shin level and above. The problem comes you need to squat to wash up properly after using the toilet (because, you see, they don't have a bidet..) Other than that, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Complimentary bottles of water are available from housekeeping, so you don't need to buy overpriced water from Ocean Park next door.
The food at Makan Makan Restaurant is up to standards for their buffet breakfast spread. They have an egg station, breads, cheeses, local food, fruits, yogurt, etc.
Please please don't eat the non-Pinoy ala carte at Makan Makan Restaurant.. It is very very depressing.. The char kuay teow was like loh mee, the satay sauce was peanut butter sauce, the curry that came with the murtabak tasted like curry powder.. AVOID at all costs...
White Moon Bar is a nice place to sit in the evenings. Amazing view of Manila Bay.. The food prices are steep, but then you are paying for the ambience.
