First time in Makati, and The Raffles is certainly one of the must welcoming and engaging hotels. The receptionist was very helpful and informative. As we arrive in our beautiful spacious suite, we had welcoming drinks and a warm welcome from staff. I would like to mention the incredible view our room had and the very pleasant beach room with...

We stayed for two nights before heading down south to the islands and can highly recommend this hotel for great service, spacious rooms and a good location. The staff made a small mistake with our airport transportation, but more than covered that with an upgrade, free transportation from and to the airport and with overall great service. The location is...

We stayed at the Raffles for 3 nights and there's really nothing negative to say about the property. We've also previously stayed at the Fairmont (which is in the same building) two years prior and so was able to compare (will get to that later).
