If there’s one thing that my family loves to do, it is to book a hotel for a staycation. We love spending time together, relaxing on a comfy bed while watching our fave cable channel in a cozy hotel room. So, despite my husband’s hectic schedule, we find time to squeeze in family travels abroad and here in PH every year. When his schedule doesn’t permit, we settle for an overnight staycation here in the metro. You may check the IG hashtag – #TeamFiguracionTravelDiary that I made to document our family getaways. There you can see the places we’ve been to from Keisha’s toddler years up to now that she’s 7 years old.
Few weeks ago, I was itching to spend quality time with my family. I came across Traveloka‘s Instagram sponsored ads and was swoon to sweetly beg my husband to take time off from work for some R&R moment at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel. I read somewhere that you can get amazing deals and offers when you download the Traveloka App on your phone, so I did.
Traveloka is a leading technology company that lets you find the cheapest valuable flights and hotels online without any additional hidden fee. It is one of the leading flight and hotel booking platforms in Southeast Asia, serving more than 100,000+ flight routes and 100,000+ hotels worldwide. You may visit their website www.traveloka.com or download the Traveloka App on the App Store or in Google Play for great deals and offer.
Booking hotel reservation via the Traveloka App was very convenient. It’s just few clicks away and we’re booked already. We booked our hotel room on the same day of our stay. I’m elated on how easy the process was. Several payment options were available, we were given the option to pay thru debit/credit card, over-the-counter payment in 7 Eleven or even in bank counters – BDO, BPI or Metrobank. As soon as we made our payment, I received a confirmation and receipt directed to my e-mail.
Keisha’s Mom Tip:
When you book on the same day of your stay, make sure to call the hotel and notify them of your reservation for a hassle-free check-in.
Eastwood Richmonde Hotel
Eastwood Richmonde Hotel is situated right beside Eastwood Mall. We frequently visit Eastwood City but we never had the chance to stay in any of the hotels or condos nearby. So staying in a familiar vicinity yet unfamiliar hotel drew so much excitement from the three of us.
Eastwood Richmonde Hotel is seamlessly integrated into the landscape as a first-class lodging establishment to house not only the corporate travellers who frequent the offices of Eastwood City CyberPark, but also the many foreign and Filipino vacationers looking for a safe and secure, yet lively place to stay. It boasts of luxurious interiors that set the tone for a pampering stay, with hotel staff on hand 24/7 to ensure each guest’s satisfaction.
Checking in was a breeze. We were welcomed with a warm smile by their courteous receptionists.
We stayed in a one-bedroom deluxe suite which was a perfect fit for a family of three.
A couch, executive desk and a full-sized mirror welcomed us. The room with a good view of Eastwood City was a feast to our eyes especially at night. The couch can seat up to 3 people in front of an LCD TV with cable channels and remote and DVD player. There’s a spread of magazine that you can browse anytime over a cup of good coffee.
The pantry has a set of basic glassware and utensils, small-sized refrigerator, coffee-/tea-making facility, welcome fruits and complimentary bottled water.
Our comfy bed topped with fluffy duvet, soft pillows and white sheets made us want to fall into deep slumber upon check-in.
Aside from the TV in the living area, there’s also an LCD TV with cable channels inside our room.
Extra pillow, ironing board, flat iron, safety deposit box, bathrobes, and bedroom slippers were all tucked in this closet.
And, the bathroom… It didn’t disappoint… It’s quite spacious and equipped with bath tub which my daughter totally abused, hand shower, clean towels, complete set of toiletries, hair dryer and weighing scale. It would have been perfect if only it has a bidet.
After setting in, the first thing we did was to check the swimming pool. The rooftop pool (4-5 deep ft.), wasn’t too inviting for me because it was quite cold that day. However, this didn’t stop my water baby and husband to plunge in.
I also took a snapshot of the gym which was fully equipped with workout materials.
Come night time, we decided to have dinner at Crisostomo in Eastwood Mall and do a little grocery shopping at Robinsons Supermarket. Oh, the perks of staying in a hotel with nearby malls and restaurants.
Another thing I look forward to in our hotel stay was the buffet breakfast. Breakfast was served at the Lounge located at the ground floor of the hotel adjacent to the reception area. Seating capacity at the Lounge is 70 pax. They serve breakfast buffet from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
A selection of delectable food – chicken soup, rice meals, fish, pork and beef menus, freshly baked pastries, cheese, fresh fruits and cereals, desserts and more greeted our empty stomachs. Coffee and different juices came in handy. Our tummies were full with great selection of food.
After breakfast, we still had few hours to relax and to watch TV while lounging on our comfy bed before we finally checked-out.
Keisha’s Mom Tip: You may call the front desk officer should you wish to have late check-out. Just make sure to graciously ask for the extension. Remember, it’s a request not a demand.
Overall, my family loved our stay at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel. We get to experience lavish comforts in our hotel room. My daughter enjoyed the bath tub and even worn her mermaid costume while bathing. On my part, I personally loved the comfy bed, fluffy pillow and extra soft duvet. I must commend the accommodating staff who provided top-notch service. Our overnight stay here officially marked our first staycation for 2017. If only it was earlier announced that there will be no classes the following day, we would have extended for another night.
For hotel discounts and other offers, I highly encourage for you to download the Traveloka App and book cheap flights and hotels.
