We went there for my parents' anniversary. The rooms are somehow outdated and unclean. The room temperature is warm that we asked for a maintenance crew to clean the airconditioner. The pool bathroom is also dirty. I think we did not get the value of our money. Highly disappointed.

If you want it then this hotel and complex will have it somewhere. The rooms have exceptional views over the bay and city of Manila. Inside the rooms are large, comfortable as befits this level of hotel. Dining is pleasurable although not intimate but the food is of a very high standard. Room service is fantastic.
