Hello June! And since I haven’t posted anything for the past week here’s a quick hotel review the family and I shared for our 3rd wedding anniversary. It was actually an impromptu staycation cause I just got lucky and won in Nanay’s trip F1 Hotel Manila giveaway. God really provides and I think this is his way of saying we need to remind ourselves not to miss on little celebrations. So anyway, the reservations was really quick. I got the gift certificates from Mommy Nadia of Nanay’s Trip blog and the next day we called the hotel for the reservation for the coming Sunday. It was really that breezy to talk to the staff for the reservation.
That is my teaser photo on my Instagram account and it was so much fun to take photos of the hotel. Especially the details of the room. We stayed in their deluxe room with one king sized bed and a sofa. I loved the red paint on the wall and the paintings on the entrance wall and in the living area.
We got to our room after about ten minutes of waiting in the reception. Upon arriving at our room I immediately liked it especially the wide space it has. The little boy and his cousin went straight to the bed and made them self cozy while watching cartoons. So while they cozied up, my sister and her hubby went out to get some food for dinner. Hubby and I also prepared the kids for a swim in the pool.
The kids were excited to have some dip in the pool. I find it nice that they have three different pools in the hotel, a jacuzzi, a square pool up to 5 feet, and a lap pool. The cabanas and tables were also a cute fixtures beside the pool.
There was a small play area near the buffet restaurant and pool which I find a nice touch for families spending their weekend there. The two boys eagerlynplayed with the blocks, slide, and books available. The floor mat was a little itchy though so hoping they’ll find another alternative to it.
After the afternoon dip and play we had dinner bought from Rustan’s. It was a first for us to try it and now I have another alternative take out food. Just in case, the mall is just a quick walk from F1 hotel. The location is very accessible to transportation, malls, and restos. Just after dinner we decided to get some late night desserts at McDonalds!:) We tried their angry bird happy meal and some matcha msflurry too!
Another highlight I wish to emphasize is the hotel internet service. Not just the wifi but also the dsl broadband they have. Perfect for business trips and for people like me whonlikes to cram for masters requirements haha! It was also very easy and user friendly so I got connected really fast.
The morning after we got up early so we could have another swim and it was great to find a not-so-crowded buffet breakfast. Though there is a wide variety of food I somehow found the selections ordinary. Not so much as I would want to get breakfast again from their buffet. Did not get to take photos too as the little one was so eager to swim than to eat.
Check out was also breezy and we were able to get uber immediately near the hotel. Wifi was really fast so that’s a bonus for us. Generally, F1 Hotel is a great place for a quick staycation in the Metro. Just when you feel you’d like to relax and rest without leaving Metro Manila but still feeling the vibe of out of town then F1 Hotel Manila can be your option. Our family had fun and I’m sure yours will too. Thanks again F1 Hotel Manila and Nanay’s Trip!
