I stayed at The Mabuhay Manor early this month with a small bunch of friends. Our stay was only for a night at one of the hotel's Premium room. The hotel might look small and compact when viewed at the front but once you get inside and stroll around, you'll see that it is actually quite spacious. My friends and I were graciously assisted by the hotel staff upon check-in. There was a quaint bridgeway inside that we had to walk through to get to our room on the second floor, which we liked. The hallways were elegant and carpeted but not lavishly so, which were fine with us.

Our room was good for five persons, with enough space for luggage and extra mattress. We found the room to be pleasantly clean and furnished with necessities like a cable TV, a well-stocked mini-bar, telephone, and two side tables. I also liked the fact that the room was brightly lit as I don't like dimly lit rooms.

Bathroom amenities were limited to only two persons though, and there's an additional charge for extra towels. Room service was prompt and efficient but the Wi-Fi connection was rather intermittent.

We loved the swimming pool, which was located at the ground floor beside the Sutukil restaurant near the Manor Suites. Complimentary buffet breakfast for two persons were provided for at the Lola's restaurant. We were given a choice of Filipino or American breakfast. Lola's has a traditional Filipino ambiance and serve local delicacies like puto, tuyo, and salted eggs.

Check-out at the reception was quick and the staff offered to get us a taxi from the hotel. In summation, we enjoyed our stay at Mabuhay Manor. Practical tourists can experience first hand the warm hospitality of the Filipinos at the hotel and Pinoys traveling from abroad will surely enjoy the hotel's ambiance, especially its friendly service and local dishes served at the in-house restaurants.

Unique Qualities: Caters mainly to Filipinos traveling from abroad (i.e., balikbayans); its restaurants serve Filipino dishes and delicacies.
