The Acacia hotel which sits in the middle of the Festival Mall and the Alabang Town Center, serves as an ideal location to serve the lazy needs of a grown man. It has its own gym, pool, and of course room service. It has free shuttle service to anywhere in Alabang. It also offers wifi to its guests.
I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights and have found a nice affordable place to stay down south.
This was my experience.
Hallways were brightly lit and well spaced. Elevators needed key cards for access to different floors.
|Needed to call the front desk for additional toothpaste and toothbrush..Small BooBOo|
|More tea...and coffee|
|Has free wifi.. although somewhat slow and difficult to connect to.|
|Welcome fruits and turn down macaroons.|
|The pool at night...|
|How sweet of them.|
|ham and pancakes.|
|Muesli.. with lots of nuts...|
|I got an omelet and of course I hoarded the cheese.|
|Yeah... that wasn't my plate... MINE WAS A MOUNTAIN>>> LOL!|
After breakfast with the whole day to spare, we ordered room service. Everything looked fine and the food came within 20 minutes. They even had their own table. Service was all right.
BIG MISTAKE>>> EVERYTHING WAS SALTY!
|Looks good right? NOT!!! The fries were overly seasoned with salt. The crabs for the bisque were salted too much. The pancit.. well you guessed it... Tasted like SALT!!! .|
For the price we paid, our stay for 3 days and 2 nights was exemplary. Check in took 10 minutes. We were served pandan juice while waiting. Parking was free, safe and underground. I wasn't able to try their free shuttle. Needed help and request came within a few minutes of calling their in house number. I actually enjoyed my stay. I would gladly go back if I had someone to join me... with summer ending, I just don't know who I can get to go with me. BUMMER!!! Oh well..
Good thing about the place was that it was just across some restaurants where one could walk. They had Army Navy and Yellow cab which were open 24/7. Plus it also houses other restos. If you could spend an additional 5min walk, there are a lot of restaurants on the other side too (like kanin club, cafe breton and zong). Enjoy
