Pan Pacific Manila
Travel Blogs from Manila
Cebu Pacific out of Singapore on Christmas Night after our champagne brunch at the Ritz Carlton. Depart 0040 and arrive Manila at 0405. We stay at the pan Pacific for 1/2 day - they ahve a day use rate which is about 60% of the regular 1 night rate.
The view from the Executive lounge on the rooftop of Pan Pacific Hotel is absolutely stunning especially on a clear day. The hotel is a few blocks from Manila de Bay and is located in the heart of Manila's disco district. Checkout the Renaissance gazebo, a colourful and verdant rooftop garden with a very romantic ambience and a view to die for.
Back in Manila, just for the night. Am staying at the Pan Pacific Hotel. OMG.....Upon arrival, they had overbooked and upgraded me to a King Pacific Suite......This thing is bigger than my condo and is only costing me $125/nite. Anyways, nothing else to report other than I had a nice final day in Boracay. I am sad to have left, but am anxious to …
This day always arrives in everyone's holiday, usually greeted with sadness but sometimes with thank goodness. Unfortunately this was a minor thank goodness. Puerto Princesa was definitely the highlight and Manila the low. Why, let me try and explain. We have visited many cities and country capitals and enjoyed most, they have all offered something unique in culture, sights or history. Manila in my opinion qualifies in a history sense alone. I don't wish ...
... drawback to my week was that the ceilings were very low at BK and I spent much of my week bent over walking thru the building except on the occasion I wouldn't think about it and then nearly knock myself out on a beam.
I lost a few pounds, made several new friends, ate very healthy, learned alot, put a huge dent in my 1135 page Haruki Murakami book, felt cleaner inside and out (and that feeling is still with me nearly a week later) and had another memorable birthday.

Disappointing to wait for 3 hours because a member of the board is still in your suite...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pan Pacific Manila
I booked this hotel via the internet and was expecting a standard room. The twin beds I stayed in was facing a terrible side of the street where dumpsters were located, but that was not the worst part because I took care of it by keeping the curtains closed. The sheets were worn out, the rooms had a musty odor to it. It seemed they were in the process of renovating but they rented out the rooms in the wing I stayed in anyway and they were old, smelled of old smoke. The ceiling was yellowed with water spots, the closets did not even close right. It was a terrible experience. I booked this hotel because of the nice Pan Pacific in Singapore but what a nightmare this hotel was. The difference between Pan Pacific Singapore and Pan Pacific Manila was like day and night....I definitely do not recommend this hotel.
Classy and a very nice ambiance!
My family and I stayed at Pan Pacific for 3 nights. We booked 2 rooms for myself, my wife and two children. The front desk staff members were very attentive and detail-oriented. I can tell they were trained properly. Everything starts at the front desk. From our luggage being handled promptly to being escorted to our rooms was totally unexpected. The rooms were very uncluttered and neatly kept. And the view from the restaurant on the top floor was breathtaking, and the food marvelous. The hotel's security is second to none. I would gladly stay at this hotel again in the near future......

Very very good
loved this hotel staff so friendley rooms large and airy a really relaxing place to say they have butlers on every floor who would jump through rings to make you happy. the location is good golf course nearby about 25 pounds for a round with caddy and club hire. the food at hotel is very good breakfast is a large buffet with every thing you could want. they also have taxi sevice for the hotel only that will pick you up at airport only waited 10 mins for it to arrive 800php about 9 pounds also they will take you further we took taxi to pangasinan a four hour drive they wanted 6500php but we got them down to 5000php so you can get cheaper if you ask. but you will not be disappointed
Stayed at this hotel Sept. 9 2005, my girlfriend who is a Philippine's citizen booked the room, but she was asked if I am a Philippine's citizen, the person who is handling the reception/booking told her that if I am not Philippine's citizen the hotel rate is different. I decided to pay the "foreigners rate" just so we won't waste too much time waiting for this person who was "helping" us, so we can put away our luggages. Turned out that there are approximately $40.00 difference in the room rates.
Will not stay there again with this discriminatory treatment, they better change this practice to be able to established themselves as first class international hotel.
Thumbs up for the Pan Pac
A great place to stay if you want to be near the newly refurbished seafront promenade and Malate nightlife. Elegant and spacious rooms, good places to eat in the adjacent mall, adequate security and a very accommodating staff. A classy respite from the intensity of downtown Manila.
Try diamond or hyatt casino instead
Please dont waste your money or time at this hotel. I booked a room and flew like 23 hours and when I arrived they re-booked my room so I had to find accomodations at 1:00am in the morning. I was not pleased to say the least. (Plus the manager was annoying!)
Very nice, very modern hotel in a great location. The rooms are nice and very clean. Ask for a bayviewroom.
Staff are helpfull and know what they are doing.
Security is over average.
Restaurant at the top floor gives you a fantastic view of the city and the bay.
Breakfast buffet is overloaded with everything.
The pool is not so big but is ok anyway.
Overall a good choice.
