Serene and Relaxing Wedding Anniversary Celebration
My husband and I both wanted a relaxing trip with just the two of us on our 4th wedding anniversary and we are both glad that Discovery Country Suites did not disappoint :)
Making reservations was easy thru direct booking at their website. I informed them once thru email that it is our anniversary celebration and they take it seriously from there because our room is so pleasing to the eyes and heart <3
Checking in was fast and they served us welcome drinks upon checking in. And when we entered the room, i fell in love with it quickly. Nantucket is big and spacious. And with all the rose petals scattered, a greeting banner, and a complimentary slice of chocolate cake, who couldn't love the place? My husband was impressed too.
Around 5pm, the staff will knock on your door to serve the wine and cheese which for me is a very nice touch. Since our reservation comes with either complimentary dinner or massage, we chose the dinner, and once again Verbena Restaurant did not disappoint. The food they served is very delicious from the starters up to the dessert.
We were very much pampered with their services and the free movie marathon using only original dvd is a big plus. Other amenities like the small pool is good and inviting although we did not dip in the pool, when we checked, it is clean and it is heated.
We had a good night sleep because of the complimentary milk and cookies at bedtime. And mainly of course because the bed, linens and pillows are clean and soft to the skin.
At morning, they will not serve you the usual filipino breakfast, instead you will choose from their special menu and once again the food is heavenly. There are breads, pastries, cereals and fresh fruit juices too. But for me the best is the hot chocolate :)
Checking out was fast and easy too. Thanks to Ms. Rashi, Ms. Dream and all the other staff who made our stay memorable.
As you can see, I have given the rating of Very Good, because it is really very good. But there are some points which I would like to address as room for improvement before this place can be considered as Excellent:
1. The bathroom of Nantucket is generally beautiful, clean, spacious, and complete with all amenities. However, the drainage of both the sink and shower area really took long time to drain the water. It's sad to notice that while I am taking a bath, the floor is filled with water because of the defective drainage. Same as with the sink, while brushing teeth, the sink will be half filled with water because the drainage took long time to drain the water. And the bath towels need some replacement too because they look old, worn out and not fluffy anymore (for good and proper hygiene, towels should be replaced if it has been used many times already. And by the looks of it, the bath towels at DCS have already served its purpose and really needs replacement). For a hotel as good as DCS, this should not be overlooked.
2. Some pillows need replacement too. If I remembered correctly, 2 pillows we're not fluffy anymore (as in parang flat na cia). Again, for a hotel as good as DCS, this should not be overlooked too.
3. The wine should be served chilled. Even though it is just complimentary I think it should be chilled. We put our 2 glasses of wine first inside the ref before we were able to drink it.
Overall, it is still a delightful stay and will definitely come back again :)
Thank you DCS for a wonderful celebration of our anniversary <3
