This hotel was a bit of an improvement over Tune Hotel. The room is a bit larger. But, at more than 4x the price, I was left wondering what the appeal happened to be. One thing the hotel did have is a nice hot shower. Aside from that, the service and food was just bad. If you are in Makati, stay at the Tune hotel instead. A little smaller but much better value!

They will do ANYTHING to keep from getting sun on their skin. Sunblock, parasols, hats, long-sleeves, and even skin-whitening creams and soaps are the norm here. It’s safe to say that I ...
... level of knowledge, I knew instantly that we were going to get a long. The mood and dynamic of the group was cool and all seem to be getting along.
An hour into the drive I was overcome by one of the most excruciating headaches I've ever had with the feeling of nausea. I knew we were going slightly higher than Manilla but after Everest, I didn't feel it was enough to cause the problems I was currently having. Turns out that on further analysis it was either a ...
... into Robinson’s Mall. This mall was very huge and very western, TGIFriday’s, Starbucks, Krispy Kreme, even Auntie Anne’s and I totally bought a pretzel there! I had 55 pesos left and that’s exactly how much a pretzel cost which amounts to about $1.25! Everything was very inexpensive in the Philippines; I stocked up on a few toiletries while I was there and only spent about $3! ...
