I stayed at the Diamond hotel for 2 nights as a solo female traveller. I came here right from my flight from Canada and had no idea what to expect. The hotel is beautiful from the moment you walk in the door, the staff are friendly, fast and very helpful.
I really enjoyed the pool with the waterfall and especially the free womens jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. These free amenaties definitly give you more value for your dollar and make it stand out compared to any other hotels I've stayed at.
I thought the room was prefect and a real treat. It had very nice bedding and I just loved the view overlooking the bay.
The only thing that was not five star was the food. I only tried room service and it was not bad, but not as good as you could expect from such a nice hotel. There are many other dining options in the hotel you could try as well that may be better.
I also had one of the best massages I've ever had in my life here. I believe it came to about 30 USD so that was so great. I wish I could remember the massueses name to recommed her, I think it was Roma? It started with an R anyway and she is fantastic.
Another staff member that was very helpful was Jag.
I also stayed at the Bayleaf on my way home because it was rated the #1 hotel in Manila, but I would choose the Diamond first. It will always be my first stop in the Philippines.
It might just be my favorite hotel I've ever stayed in.
It is also under 200 pesos to get to the airport so a good pick if your flying in and out.
