New World Hotel Makati Review

Formerly known as New World Renaissance Hotel

Location: Esperanza Street corner Makati Avenue, Makati, Manila, Philippines 1228

New World Hotel is a five star hotel in the heart of Makati City. Great Location since it’s just beside Greenbelt so everything in Ayala is within reach. The hotel lobby is really big and you can feel it’s elegance.

We booked an executive club deluxe room, the rooms are located at the 22nd-24th floor. We chose the executive club because of this privileges while you stay on the hotel: We can have a free access to the Executive Club Lounge serving daily breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails which we can enjoy for free and also the use of Business Center for 2 hours per stay.

The room is just okay, though I’m expecting more since it’s a 5-star hotel. We have bananas in the room as welcome fruits.

The room is complete, everything you need during your stay is there. Complete toiletries and stocked mini bar.

Bathroom is good, it has a bath tub with separate shower.

The view from our room is lovely since we are on the 22nd floor. With city and pool view, the pool is a must try in the hotel, also perfect during summer with the busy city life in Makati.

Buffet breakfast at M2M (Morning to Midnight) is also delicious, many choices. Look at my plate! Yummy Filipino breakfast :)

Here is a glimpse of the Club Executive Lounge at the 24th floor. Yes, you can stay here anytime, eat and grab some drinks during your stay when you book a Executive Club Deluxe room.

This hotel is very comfortable and you were treated the best by the staff. The privileges are just amazing and made our stay so worth it.

I would love to stay in this hotel again in Ayala because of it’s location and also, it’s a bit cheaper than other 5-star hotels in the area with the same benefits or more. Time and money well spent.

XOXO

Hotel H2O Review

Location: Luneta (Behind Quirino Grand Stand), Manila Bay, Manila, Philippines

My boyfriend and I heard of this amazing hotel with aquarium walls with fishes swimming every now and then and that really captured our interest so we booked to stay there at our 2nd anniversary.

It’s Hotel H2O! Hotel H2O is the first aquarium - themed integrated resort hotel in the Philippines. A four star hotel located in Manila Ocean Park. Easy to locate since it’s really inside MOP, one of the famous tourist attractions in Metro Manila.

We checked in there at a Sunday. At first, we were given a room that wasn’t yet cleaned we went back to the lobby and they immediately changed our room. Their aqua room was small but it was perfect, our wall is an aquarium full of lovely fish which complimented all.

The bed is very comfortable and big and the bathroom on the aqua room has a shower with complete toiletries (everything you need actually), no bath tub though. Rooms also LCD tv and a free wifi access which was really fast.

We really enjoyed our stay there, we can visit Ocean Park anytime and the staff were really very accomodating. We requested to have the food we brought reheat and they gladly did all our requests. I just love looking at the fishes on our wall everytime :)

Our reservation included a buffet breakfast and it was sumptuous! The breakfast was at Makan Makan and it was really superb, many choices from different countries’ cuisine. One of the best buffet breakfast I had!

You can also have breakfast outside the restaurant where there is a great view of the Manila Bay. Some of the rooms in this hotel don’t have aquariums, thus having bay view (Manila Bay) or park view (Luneta Park).

We would love to go back to this hotel. Very relaxing, should try other types of room. But I guess still nothing beats the nice feeling and uniqueness of the Aqua room.

It’s really a plus that it’s in Manila Ocean Park, while here you can grab the chance to visit Oceanarium since it’s just an elevator away. Also try the Mega 4D rider at the first floor of Ocean Park. Sight seeing at Luneta park is also a must and Mall of Asia is just a taxi ride away.

American Reunion Movie Review

After almost a decade, American Pie is back with a new movie entitled American Reunion. And I’m one of those excited to see this film since I’m really a fan if the American Pie movies. I love how they made the movie poster identical to the first American Pie movie.

(*Spoliers ahead)

But because it has been almost ten years, big changes on our major characters are expected. As you watched on the trailer, Jim and Michelle already have a kid. Kevin looks old in the poster, well he looked that way because he’s a husband now (a house husband) and unfortunately, Vicky is not his wife. I also love what Oz has become actually, well I think it suited him well. And Stifler is still Stifler :)

I loved every scene on the movie, the humor hasn’t changed and I think it doubled. There are so much more in the story. I looked forward seeing what happened to most of East Great Falls’ students and I was satisfied. I know you’ll love it like I did! Expect more laughs.

I really enjoyed every bit of the American Reunion and I think this is the best American Pie movie EVER!

Definitely a must watch! Don’t forget to catch Jim’s transparent-lid-incident. haha!


Here are some pictures from the American Reunion Red Carpet Premiere Night:

Richmonde Hotel Ortigas Review

Location: 21 San Miguel Avenue Ortigas Center, Ortigas-Pasig, Manila, Philippines 1600

Richmonde Hotel Ortigas is a four star hotel located in the business district of Ortigas, Metro Manila. We booked here for an overnight stay to relax and since we also have a plan to go to Greenhills the other morning. We had a reservation for a junior suite which is nice and a bit bigger room than the deluxe ones. The room has a queen-sized bed, LCD tv, fridge with mini bar, a separate sofa chair, desk and two other chairs near the tv. The ambiance of the room is nice and calming.

The bathroom has a tub and toiletries, just the usual and nothing fancy.

The view from our 15th floor suite.

What I liked most is the location of this hotel since there’s always a cab passing in front of the hotel, making easy access to near landmarks like metrowalk, greenhills, SM, etc.

The hotel has a heated indoor pool just beside it’s gym, the water was so relaxing since it’s warm.

We really enjoyed it especially if you’re booking this hotel for a business trip, you can always take a dip after a stressful day.

The buffet breakfast included in the room reservation is also good with a lot of choices. The chocolate cake was heaven!

We wish to have stayed longer, lovely place, affordable and very convenient. I also wish my boyfriend took a good picture of me. haha!

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa Review

Location: Punta Engano Road | P.O. Box 86 , Punta Engano, Cebu, Philippines 6015

Part II: Second Day At Shangri-La Mactan (Read Part I here.)

During our last day of stay at Shangri-La, we made sure to see the amazing beach of this resort. We had our breakfast first at Tides, the breakfast was sumptuous as ever.

Then, we walked to the beach. Every inch of this resort is heaven. You can just stay at the chairs everywhere and relax and just enjoy the amazing view, so many trees that’s why it has a so calm environment. Can’t help but to take lots and lots of pictures during our stay.

Then.. Taadaaaa! The Beach!

The beach was so stunning, it was so perfect. The soft white sand and the clear water was so inviting, plus there are a few people in the beach which makes it better to relax and enjoy everything. This is really the loveliest beach I’ve ever been to.

The beach is big and has lots of beach chairs where you can sun bathe, some have covers if you don’t want to get too much sand. The view was just breath-taking!

It has also some romantic places and a small football-type park where your children can play while you enjoy the view. Glad a security guard came to us and offered to take our picture here:

Didn’t miss the chance to get mine, too :)

You can do lots of activities in this resort. There are many perks of booking a room in the ocean Wing, like free water activities, etc.

But the best thing is dipping in the pools and enjoying the sun in the beach.

Will definitely go back here, then it was check-out time. Our next 3 days in Cebu is in the city. Bye, bye Mactan for a while!

Overall, our stay was just so perfect! Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa is really a paradise, you can’t say anything negative about this place. You feel royalty while here. It was worth every single money you paid for and even get more of what you expect. It was just a bit expensive since it’s really the best so a lot of tourists just try day tours/night tours in the resort which is still worth it for around Php3500 you can stay at the resort for the whole day with a free lunch buffet/dinner buffet at Tides. You can contact Shangri-La’s Mactan through their website.

With all the other beach resorts in Mactan, I’ll still choose to stay here. A paradise in Cebu, Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa.

XOXO

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa Review

Location: Punta Engano Road | P.O. Box 86 , Punta Engano, Cebu, Philippines 6015

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa is an amazing five star resort at the island of Mactan. I think this is the best beach resort in Mactan, I actually think it’s the best in Cebu! We stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights, first beach we went to on our week-long Cebu trip. We arrived in the evening since our flight is 5:00 pm from Manila. Going there is easy since there is an hourly shuttle waiting for you at Mactan International Airport, they also have a Customer Service office at the airport.  It was just a short 20-minute drive and then, Hello Shangri-La!

Part I: First Day At Shangri-La Mactan

We booked a Deluxe Sea View room which is in the Ocean Wing building of the resort.

The Bathroom was fully equipped with a tub and also a tv speaker in case you want to hear what’s in the TV while you’re in the shower. Lots of toiletries for everything you need for hygiene purposes.

The room has a veranda which has a spectacular view of the resort, with the beach and pools. Also has a fully stocked mini bar.

And the delicious ripe mango as a welcome fruit.

The staff was very accommodating, we were treated very special, every request was happily done. In room dining was excellent! The chef was the one who served us and they brought us a lovely table. We tried their Chicken Adobo and Beef Steak Pinoy. The food was amazing, just a bit expensive than normal prices but worth it. 

Their pools are open until 9pm, so we decided to take a dip.

Our reservation included Buffet Breakfast at Tides, a lot of choices of different cuisines like Japanes, Korean, American, etc.. I love that there’s danggit!

Many people are eating at Tides most of the time, also because the resort have a day tour available for walk-in guests.

After eating, we strolled around the resort for a while. Such a lovely place!

We decided to go out and do other things at Mactan and also buy some groceries which you can bring inside the resort. We rented a car from the resort for a very reasonable price since the shuttle had already left and the next one will yet be for the next hour.

This is what I wore today, who says you can’t do Florals over Florals? Well, I wanted to feel the summer more that;s why :)

Enjoyed our first day at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa! Lots of things to do at this resort. Read more about my review on our 2nd day with pictures of the beach here.

Costabella Tropical Beach Resort Cebu Hotel Review

Location: Buyong, Mactan Island, Maribago, Cebu, Philippines

Costabella Tropical Beach Resort is a four star resort located in Mactan Island, in line with other resorts in the amazing white sand beach of Maribago. You can reach it by riding a taxi around less than 200 php, easy to locate since there are signs on the road.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night during our week-long Cebu escapade. I’ll also post some of my reviews on Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa, Harolds Hotel, Lancaster Hotel and Crown Regency Hotels and Towers and also more of our experiences there. This is the last beach we visited in Mactan island on our last day and I can say it made our trip more worth it!

We booked a Premier Deluxe room and it was really good. I recommend not to book standard rooms since I’ve read reviews that they are really old and far from the beach. There were some problems in our room but they were handled promptly. One thing we liked the most was the service of the staff, very professional and accommodating.

The room has two double beds, colored tv, desk, and veranda with a lovely view. The bathroom has a tub and toiletries.

View below from our room on the 3rd floor.

The beach was small but it was nice, just don’t mind the people on the other side of the breakwater trying to sell you stuff. The white sand was just beautiful.

If you want to go island hopping or cruise, just contact front desk and they will assist you. Pools were very nice, and the ambiance of the resort was just so peaceful.

You can stay and just relax anywhere in the resort, every inch is just a paradise.

Food was delicious, we had a room service during dinner and we were so full after. We tried their friend chicken, filipino beef steak and pork sinigang, Their iced tea is a must try, the best iced tea we’ve tried ever!

Breakfast buffet was okay, little to choose from but it was fine.

Total, it was a very nice stay here. We felt relaxed and the view from our room with all the trees was so serene. I consider Costabella Tropical Beach Resort a small paradise in Mactan. Would go back to this resort again and I definitely recommend it when you visit Cebu especially if you’re on a budget, it’s cheap for what you get and totally worth the money!

XOXO

SO, I’ve visited some good hotels and resorts for the past months, and I’ll be posting my reviews of those places in a while.

Enjoy!

XOXO
