Spiral never fails! Highly recommended! 2020 was the last time i visited, and still fabulous as ever! Waitstaff are all accommodating besides their covid protocols. All dishes are fresh and served hot! Asian section was a favorite but the cheese room was the best! Kudos to mr.maron for introducing us to your cheeses! Your knowledge is impeccable. Such a cheese connoisseur. The whole family enjoyed your company! Will definitely visit again!

I stayed at the Sofitel Manila for mandatory quarantine as I entered the Philippines for a business trip. I have done a lot of quarantine stays in the Philippines and in other countries. This is from far the worst. In a nutshell: - food arrives more than 1-2 hours late, and you need to repeatedly call to make sure they are on it - when the food arrives, there is a 50% chance it is not your order or an incomplete order - if you call the operator (for anything), you wait at least 10 minutes before somebody answers - I was entitled to an treadmill (since I was in a suite), but of course the treadmill arrived 24 hours late... with no power cord to plug it in (they said they would bring it, but never did, even if I requested multiple times) I understand there might be staff issues with covid going on... but the quarantine guests should be a priority since they don't have any means to get out of their rooms and communicate with the hotel facilities/services.

Dear PhilippeM7808, Thank you for your review. We are facing an unprecedent surge of Omicron virus / Covid 19 in Manila that has affected many of our colleagues at a lighting speed. Therefore we have faced shortage of human resources every days and in almost every department of the hotel resulting in unusual delays in service operation. We are getting our employees gradually back at work. Please stay safe and kind regards Thank you for staying with us

We are visiting Manila for the first time in five years. We were supposed to reunite and bond with our loved ones but the covid pandemic let us do otherwise. So instead, we booked a 10-night stay here in the hotel. We definitely chose the right accommodation for our family of three; myself, my husband, and my 8.5month old baby. Everybody is friendly and very accommodating. From the concierge, check-in staff, wait staff, guards, ushers, housekeeping, lifeguards.. EVERYBODY!!! We would like to give a shoutout and to extend our gratitude to the staff at the Spiral restaurant, especially to Ms. Abby Angelo. Everyday, when we head down for our breakfast, we would always be greeted by her most welcoming smile. Even with a mask on, you can see her smiling through her eyes. She goes above and beyond; she prepares and sanitizes not just our table but also our son’s high chair. She does this even before we arrive (since she knows that we’d be staying here for around 10days and that we would be regulars). The management did a great job assigning her at her position. She definitely sets the mood for a pleasurable dining experience. Also, the servers and wait staff, especially those who are assigned at the breakfast buffet were nothing short of providing us a satisfactory meal. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a good time! The servers and table attendants are very kind. Want to highlight Pia and Fernan's service because they were hospitable and they catered to all of our needs for me and my boyfriend's date night. Kudos as well to the server in the cheese section for taking the time to explain the cheeses he provided us. ❤️
