It’s our third time to check-in at Korean owned resort since its opening in 2008, the first was in 2009 and 2010. Rooms and amenities appears the same, although the ceiling has watermarks made by weather disturbances I guess (that is seen from the top 5th level), Junior Suite cost PhP 4,888 net inclusive of breakfast for two at Salt Restaurant. We were lucky to have a poolside view this time (since it’s always taken from the past stay) and we waited an hour and a minute before the last group check-out and we were able to secure the room from 4th Level where we stayed awhile to 5th Level. We stayed 3D/2N without the hassle of over crowded guests and as usual 50% of the hotel’s guest are Koreans. Even at Widus Casino, Korean players are mostly welcome. By the way this resort is staffed with mixed nationalities: Filipinos and Koreans. The Widus Casino is extremely addicting, we managed to get back the first 3K we inserted and hooked a winnings of PhP1,500 on a thirty-minute slot machine plays. 🙂 My companion held her luck with more winnings of Php 4,500 the following day.
Widus Hotel Vida
The changes were— they now re-brand Hotel Vida as Widus Hotel Vida, making way for Widus Convention Center (WCC) soon. The slightest notice I want to share from my prying eyes and me being OC-type (obsessive-compulsive) was the toiletries – towels, they haven’t change don’t they, I actually made a comment on their guest box to replace it with newer batch, the white towelettes specially looks grayish somehow. But the suite is still relaxing and comfortable.
Nothing spectacular new at the pool area, except for the construction in completion for the new shower areas beside the kid’s pool. Water slides that time in under re-painting. But the sunken bar is now in operation making way for the summer quench. What I love about Hotel Vida‘s pool area, is like we owned the big pool for a couple of hours, it’s our alone to frenzy with.
