So, we made it to Manila. It was dark when we arrived and since your truly thought the plane was at 8, not at 10. We headed back to the airport in the dark. I wish I could say I love the Manila airport... You have to wait in a general holding section after security (screening number 1) and watch a board that resembles a train station schedule board …
... outer wall, which would once have given defenders a good vantage point overlooking the river, provided us with views of the golf course which now surrounds the fort. We completed our loop of the fort's grounds, taking in the dungeons and "media naranja" (a semi-fircular courtyard which, despite its name, had little to do with oranges...).

... temple and shopping. It is so fun to barter and walking away feeling you got a great deal on your new purchase. We rented scooters another day and ventured all over Bali, driving on the opposite side of the road, weaving in and out of traffic since there are no lights or rules but it works amazingly well. Glad I was on the back with Darcy and Corey doing the driving. We made it to some temples and a rock bar on the side of a cliff. So cool even though it was an expensive drink, we ...
... and happy hour specials that enticed the thirsty folk. The island was small and could be walked around in a mere 45 min or so which made for limited activity inland. Most of our time was spent laying on the beach or hiding out undercover when the afternoon showers rolled in. The best option for dinner when the sun went down was by far the fresh BBQ along the beach. Each restaurant offered locally caught seafood (snapper, barracuda, jumbo prawns, parrot fish etc) along with ...
... it is yours and you should not part with it. If you have an issue or the driver tries the "broken meter" trick, there is a number on the slip and you can report him. We got a taxi by about 7.30 and headed to Jam Bus Station. It took about 25 minutes and cost just over 100 Pesos.
The bus ride to Batangas port took about two hours and time passed quickly as we chatted and I suggested some places that my companion might try to visit whilst he ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bayview Park Hotel Manila
The hotel does not look like what they have in their website. Very run down and seems like whoever own it does not have any interest in renovating it. They put us in a room with molds and when we told the front desk they do not know what to do and have no interest in moving us in any other room. The room was so old it got cracks all over the wall. Fridge does not work and yup! They charge us twice for 1 drink we took out of the fridge! The place smells so old and so moldy. Phone does not work and towels are so old that the towel I use to dry my dog looks better! They have rip on their old bedsheets they use. The restaurant was terrible! One time we ate breakfast the food that suppose to be hot was so cold! We did not stay the whole duration of our stays that we paid through Expedia and move out. Of course, Expedia refuses to re-imburse for the rest of our money. There is nothing good I can say about this hotel. It is not a 3 star hotel like they say they are. I will not even give them a star for that matter!
For $40.00/night, OK (Good for Short Stays Only)
For the $40.00 I paid for one night, I think I got I paid for. The room was small but comfortable. The carpet in the hallway needs to be replaced, 'twas faded and stained. There were some renovations going on. Some areas looked newly painted. I think they need to fast-track these renovations because the hotel and its premises could use a major overhaul. The breakfast buffet was ok. The Starbucks coffee shop next to the dining area was one good thing about this hotel. The front desk staff could be more generous of their smiles. That can make up for a lot of shortcomings. The bell boy was very helpful. Would recommend for short stays only.
Scariest Shower I've ever had
The price I paid for the Bayview was reasonable, one of the most inexpensive I could find in the area. I stayed with my wife and daughter for about a week and found the room to be of average cleanliness but very small. Smaller than most 3 star hotel rooms(days inn, holiday inn, etc.) The thing that sticks out in my mind the most about my stay was the electrical outlet they had IN THE SHOWER. No, I'm not talking about a outlet BY the shower for use while shaving at the sink, but literally IN the shower wall. Needless to say this was a little unnerving trying to keep water away from the outlet while showering at the same time.
My family and I were suppose to "celebrate" our new year's eve...we ended up wishing that we stayed home!
Rats and Roaches in my room
My brother and I checked in this hotel and we found big ben (rats) inside the room after few days. We were moved to another room and presence of small roaches all over the bathroom noted. Not only that, early in the morning you'll hear loud music played in the function room which is the top level of our room. Also, we were charged of drinks from the mini bar twice.
I personally do not recommend this hotel to any of my relatives or friends not even my dog. I'm very much disgusted.
We stayed at the Bayview Park Hotel for two nights in December.
when my family and I stayed in this hotel they made us pay for drinks from the mini bar which we didn't consume! imagine paying for something you didn't even get a taste of! grrrrrr. we were out the whole day then arrived at around 9 pm to get a quick shower before taking off to meet with friends again for dinner. then we came back around 2 am totally exhausted and right away slept the night off. when we checked out the next day we were told we consumed a soda and mineral water! how could this be? we were out almost the whole day! i asked to see the cleaners after we left coz they were the ones who told the front desk bout the consumed bottles in our room, they were all gone! the staff keft pointing fingers as to whom i'll talk to! this aint good folks! with no one to talk to, i paid it all! darn i won't stay in this hotel again!
the service was terrible. we asked for baby cot upon reservation at 2pm. then when we checked in at 6pm the same day, we reminded them about it. we went out for dinner and came back at 10pm, asked for the cot again. at 12mn, we called the desk to ask about the cot and then someone said they forgot about it. the cot arrived minutes after that call. by that time, the baby was fast asleep on the bed. was i supposed to say get the crib here in 10 minutes and you get a tip?!
I travel all over the world and I was very dissatisfied with your hotel. I paid for a superior room and it did not have any refridgerator stock. The shower had no hot water even after running it for 15 mins to get it hot, the sink was missing the control rod for the plug and the room was far below what I have had in hundereds of other 4 star hotels around the world.
