" The Splurge"

On all my adventurous trips Ive been taking lately, after weeks of cold showers, sharing my accommodations with various insects and critters, waking up to pigs and roosters, and getting very dirty getting there... I go for a splurge one night in a nice hotel.
Manila is a big city, lots of people, lots of poverty, crime, and traffic...and the …

... about 5 minutes to get a taxi took just over 1hr. Then it took another 45minutes to drive what normally takes 10 minutes. When it rains here, the streets get flooded and driving is chaotic. No one stays in their lanes and additional lanes are created. Motorcycles weave in and out of cars and trucks and groups of people cross the streets in between the traffic. I haven’t seen an accident yet, so obviously the natives are used to this.
I went to ...

One Ma'am in Manila

... offering them work that they have to follow me. The money isn't the problem part for me, but the attitude is disgusting. Finally they leave after i tell them im going elsewhere and probably other words i can't quite remember now. Screw them.

So... after a brief walk back to the main area of Talisay I hopped into a jeepney (number 3) and off it went. The way it should have been. I even didn't end up having to pay for that journey either. Karma is back in my side (i think) and ...

... Barong I chose was one with beautiful silver buttons, but the challenge was finding one that would fit me. It would be fair to say that Filipino salesgirls are, shall we say, eager to get a sale, and this girl went through every large size on the rack until she found one. She was eager to get on with it, so insisted ...

Goodbye Malaysia

A travel blog entry by charlotterowley

Finally time to pack my bags and head away from my Mabul home for a couple of weeks. As I was driving away from Semporna for the hours ride to the airport, I realised I had not been in a car (or any other mode of transport for that matter, aside from a boat) for the past 3 months. That is weird. Being, as usual, far too early for my flight, gave me an opportunity to peruse the shops. What a selection! More crisps, chocolate and icecream than I have seen in a long time! I ...

    No customer service at all

    from

    We have 2 rooms reservation 1 room should have 2 kids and 2 adult and the other room should be 2 adult, both our rooms requested 2 beds, but instead we both got 1 king bed, I cannot imagine how 2 kids and 2 adult will fit in one king bed. Bed & bedspread are very worn out. My brother has to return to front desk 11 times before we can get our room ready, one room was ready but the other room, did not get in till 6 pm. This is the only hotel I have known that charge for ice and for the use of tennis court that they call amenities. From the front desk to restaurant there is no customer service. Food is very expensive with the limited choice of restaurant. Entry card to our room never work properly. Big mistake to prepaid our room, seven days of headache.

    Loved the view

    from

    We stayed at this hotel Jan.3 2006. Check in pretty slow but friendly and accomodating staff.We requested ocean view rooms(2 rooms) and got them both. Beautiful Manila bay at night plus pool view was amazing. Nice grounds and big rooms. Bathrooms need some renovation and need more staff on the front desk will be nice. I was pretty impressed when we went to eat breakfast(complimentary breakfast)the staff knows who we are.We will definitely stay at this hotel again . I hope next time their bathrooms will be as nice as Mandarin Hotel in Makati.

    TERRIBLE

    from

    The hotel has a nice view, I can't complain about that, however, the service is bad. First, we reserved a room for 4 people and they gave us 2 twin beds. Then, we were told that we got upgraded from a smoking room to a non-smoking room which we requested anyway when we reserved the rooms. We ask for extra pillows and they charge us 100 pesos per pillow. We played in the tennis court and the driving range and they charge us a fee plus a fee for each ball boys (4) which we did not even ask to have. They said our breakfast comes with the room, but then when we check out they charged us for the breakfast and not to mention overcharge us. Whenever we complain about the bill, each person tells us that it will be adjusted in the front desk but nobody in the front desk got notified. No security at all. My sister went to my room when we were not there and ask the cleaning person to open the door for her and they opened it. No security at the door either. They check cars coming in when they feel like it. I will never stay there again in my life.

    Very Average

    from

    We stayed at the Westin in mid Nov. Rooms have a nice view of Manila Bay, but the interior of the rooms were very disappointing - they were old, including the bathrooms and generally did not have an inviting feel. We have stayed at the Westin in Melbourne before which was FAB and were really disappointed this time.

    Westin Phil Plaza Stay

    from

    Nicely located by the seafront, we stayed here in early Nov 2005. We were first checked into an awful room on the first floor. Going back to reception, they moved us without question to the third floor.

    This room was much better, but I think the common areas throughout the hotel need refurbishing. Just general upgrading of the decorations is needed. They were rebuilding the Plaza area when we stayed there, so there was a lot of building work going on which was a bit of a nuisance.

    The grounds of this hotel are delightful - spacious and right on the Bay. We stay there mainly because of the grounds and the great pool area. Our kids love it. we would stay here again because of the good internet rates - but only after they complete the building work!

    A pleasant surprise

    from

    I had an idea that this particular hotel was one past its prime, having seen its glory days and now pretty much on the over the top of the curve. I was quite surprised at the level of service that they still have!

    Plaza was great

    from

    Had a fantastic stay at the Plaza. Food great, pool area stunning, cheap beers, fun entertainment. View from our hotel room awesome. The staff were always smiling and friendly. Lobby lounge has a patisserie with to-die-for pastries and cakes. Delicious food at the Sports Bar and Treasure Island. If I went to Manila again I would stay there.
