There’s nothing more enticing for a mom like me than to hear that she will be pampered like a queen and leave the family’s accommodation, entertainment and food on them, their treat!
When F1 Hotel Manila said they are going to take my family into a weekend staycation at their hotel, so as to give us a sample of their Freebies for Mommies promo on Mother’s Day (May 12, 2013) I did not hesitate to said yes immediately.
Basically, they want me and my family to have a feel of how staying in F1 Hotel Manila is with regards to accommodation, facility, food, customer service, entertainment and everything else in this re-branded hotel has to offer. They used to be the Best Western Premiere F1 Hotel & Resort when they opened at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig catering to expats and foreign visitors. But now they want to market this hotel as not just for foreign tourist but also an all-Filipino Family friendly hotel. By the way, they are the first hotel to stand at the Global City.
After settling down our room I went down again to meet the bosses Mr. Tony Co (Director for Operations), Mr. Laurence Pena (General Manager) and Chef Sau del Rosario (Head Chef) and Mikco Maiquez (Marketing Manager).
We talked about the on-going promos including the Freebie for Mommies promo, Barbeque Buffet, and After Office Booze promos.
The room has a King size bed.
A Sofa Bed in the living area
Mini Bar/ Kitchen
Spacious bath and comfort room
Lunch Buffet at the restaurant at the 5th floor
Gym for the gym rats
I get to try their signature massage and it was heavenly. The massage was a part of the treat for moms!
They have three different sized pools. A small round one for tiny tots.
The medium sized pool for bigger kids but adults can swim as well
The large elevated pool
- The location is perfect because everything you need is close by (hospital, office, mall, park, transportation).
- I love the big and spacious rooms.
- I love the Free Broadband Internet! It is perfect for online workers like me!
- I love that they have everything I need, a flat iron, hair dryer and I don’t need anything else.
- The staff are super friendly and helpful
- The elevators are super fast!
- The price for the room and food is very reasonable and competitive with other hotels .
- Interiors are beautiful.
- I love the relaxing night entertainment by their in-house band. The ambiance at night is great for a night cap with friends after work.
- Food is delicious, my daughter loved all the food at the breakfast buffet.
What my mother thinks: “Pinakamaganda hotel na natiran natin, mas maganda pa sa hotel natin sa Hong Kong(The most beautiful hotel we have stayed in, it was even better than the hotel we stayed in at Hong Kong”. We’ve taken mom to all sorts of 5 star, 4 star, and 3 star hotels but mom can’t stop raving about F1 Hotel Manila I tell you!
Do I recommend F1 Hotel Manila?
Absolutely. If you want a place for a relaxing and fun staycation with your family in Metro Manila, don’t look further as F1 Hotels Manila has everything you need. I was not able to try their baby sitting service but looking at their website they said they offer such service. Maybe on our next visit I will try it out too. But overall I love everything about this hotel there’s some things they can improve like the location where they do the barbeque (or maybe put an exhause termina so the smoke doesn’t get in the guests eyes), add some candles and scents in the spa area, and treat the pool more often. But these are just suggestions that needs minimal room for improvement.
What’s most important is I made my mom happy by taking her at this advanced Mother’s Day treat by F1 Hotel Manila because she definitely enjoyed our stay. The daughter and my sister enjoyed the swimming pool and yes the food and the rooms. In all we loved our stay here and will recommend other’s to try it out as well.
They also have their promo room rates on-going you may visit www.f1hotelmanila.com to know more or book your stay here on Mother’s Day!
How about you, have you tried checking-in at this hotel yet? What are your plans for Mother’s Day?
Stay gorgeous everyone
