Nov 24, 2018 - Backpacking
Overall, we love our stay at the hotel. Here's the list of the pros and cons staying in this hotel. by the way our room is at 3rd floor executive suite booked for 2 nights. Pros: 1. Near establishments. (There is an adjacent 7Eleven store, laundry shop and 10mins ride to SM iloilo and Festive walk Mall. 2. Accessible to transport vehicles. Right outside the hotel there are jeepneys, tricycles, taxis that can take you within the vicinity. I like the part where tricycles can take/ drive commuters in/out megaworld business center. I think you cannot see one here in manila particularly at BGC Taguig or Eastwood. Drivers were also hospitable and trustworthy. If I may add, language difficulty is a challenge but they were welcoming and will guide you even more. We also have our daytour pass at Gigantes island which is in Carles, this hotel is superb in location wise since the earliest trip of Van/buses going to Carles is at 4am and the fact that PearLi view is just a 10-15mins ride to the terminal, we actually recommend this hotel if you have the same itinerary with us. You don't have to wake up so early I guess. Also from carles our van goes back to Iloilo city, we just alight right outside the hotel because it's the common route going to dropoff terminal at Sm iloilo (mandurriao-jaro rd). It's just very convenient. 3. The lobby attendant is accommodating and easy to talk to. 4. Cr is clean and without molds. They do have hot water and that's what I like. They have complimentary towels (2), tissue, and some hygiene kit. 5. With complimentary 2 bottled water. 6. With clothes rack where you can hang your wet clothes from the island hopping. 7. There are many electrical outlet where you can simultaneously charge your gadgets. 8. Bed/pillows are soft and comfortable to sleep with. Cabinets are spacious. With television and dresser/dining table. 9. Near Jaro cathedral, Jaro plaza, Savemore and mercury drugs. Walking distance from the hotel. 10. Near pasalubong stores. I think 1 jeepney ride to Margecs cream horn, Biscocho haus at Jaro Plaza. Near also Lapaz public market for Netongs La paz batchoy. Cons: 1. Aircon is not cold even if it's at max level but still comfortable to be able to have good sleep. 2. No elevator. I think if you have many baggage this may not work out for you. Maybe you can ask for help bringing your things up. But for us it's okay since we pack light, just two backpacks. 3. When we arrived there, only present at the lobby is the attendant. They could have a security guard at post, most specially at night. For security of the guests. 4. There are small cockroaches inside the Cr, maybe insecticides will do. Suggestions: 1. Could have at least complimentary slippers for guests. 2. Regular pesticide application. 3. Should add bidet or pail and dipper in Cr 4. Guard at post. Haven't tried their food but from the menu, it is cheap and appetizing. Other than that we have a pleasant stay. And will definitely come again. Two thumbs up.
