Hotel Review: Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central

I’ve been to Macao a number of times and other than a stay at Wynn when it was new, The Venetian was where I always stay for the simple reason that they had the biggest rooms which were the best value for money. Last August I decided it was time for a new hotel soContinue reading “Hotel Review: Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central”

Balesin Island Club – What We Ate at Balesin Village

Several years ago I went to Maldives and stayed at a 5 star resort. The place was beautiful but the food was shockingly expensive and  mediocre at best. Balesin Island Club can compete with the one in Maldives and the food is priced reasonably and quite good to boot.

Breakfast at 21 On Rajah, Days Hotel Singapore

 My stay at Days Hotel in Singapore included a daily breakfast buffet at their restaurant called 21 on Rajah located just off the lobby. The restaurant was big enough that it never felt full even with a large number of hotel guests dining there daily.   I liked this life sized sculpture that greeted me everyContinue reading “Breakfast at 21 On Rajah, Days Hotel Singapore”

Churrasco at Ibiza Beach Club, Mövenpick Hotel Mactan

I’ve eaten churrasco twice in my life. The first time was decades ago at Fogo de Chao in Dallas. I wasn’t much of a meat eater then so I was overwhelmed and didn’t quite enjoy it. The second time was a few years back at a restaurant in Rockwell where all the meats were marinated inContinue reading “Churrasco at Ibiza Beach Club, Mövenpick Hotel Mactan”

Spa Delmar at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan

To have the full Mövenpick Hotel experience Manny O suggested I try the massage at the hotel’s Spa Delmar. I took this picture of the beach and Ibiza Beach Club from the Spa using my iPhone’s panorama feature. I chose the lemongrass oil since I loved the smell whenever I encountered it in the hotel’s restroom.Continue reading “Spa Delmar at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan”

Tapas at Ibiza Beach Club, Mövenpick Hotel Mactan

My first dinner in Cebu was in Ibiza Beach Club at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan. I was told we were having tapas and that’s always a good thing. A short stroll from the hotel lobby to the end of this lighted walkway was Ibiza Beach Club, my favorite place in the entire hotel. Ibiza Beach Club isContinue reading “Tapas at Ibiza Beach Club, Mövenpick Hotel Mactan”
