Great gift for a couples spa treatment. We were given a big spa room, jacuzzi, steam room and a balcony over viewing the bay. The massage was very nice and the overall treatment felt very pampering, we came out glowing and rejuvinated. Loved it!

More than the hotel itself, this place is a true experience. The people, the facilities, the service and the entertainment make it like an exotic resort in a city location. I came here once by chance, I was delighted on my return and I have now stayed here every time since.

I've attended events before in this hotel but it was only this year when I finally signed up for an Accor membership. Although the bedrooms need a bit of sprucing (broken bathroom blinds, rust stains on the mirror and scuffs on doors and wooden panels, tiles in the swim area changing room could use a change), our room was clean,...

Food is still as good as before but I feel that it isn't as vast as before when I first dined in 2009. Staff were all attentive to all your needs. They will even provide you a small stool where you can place your bag. They anticipate your needs.

Stayed at Softel Manila for 4 nights. Staff were friendly and very accommodating. Our first suite was noisy as it was fronting the main road, asked if we could move rooms, then got upgraded to the next suite facing the pool without any issues. So much more quieter. The only minor thing is that the rooms are a bit outdated...
