It was a surprise for the kids and I made sure they won’t have a clue even when I was trying to sneak our luggage at the back of the car. Because I always attend press briefing and events with Megaworld, the kids thought they were just dropping me off. ” Are we checking in?” – after they finally saw the bellman carrying our bags. What an effortless way to surprise them with an overnight staycation.

Richmonde Hotel Iloilo offers a discounted local rate for us city dwellers to have break without traveling far. The rate may be higher than most hotels in the city but this hotel in Iloilo Business Park is one of the few hotels in Iloilo with pools.

As a new hotel, Richmonde Hotel possess modern and stylish interiors. You will love their sleek and minimalist approach that can please both business and leisure travelers alike. Spacious lobby that opens to their Granary Restaurant and BizBar on each sides.

BizBar doesn’t look like this; I took this photo when BizBar was used as a holding room for media during the inauguration of Iloilo Convention Center. Perfect for late-night drinks, guests can enjoy the exclusivity of BizBar.

Richmonde Hotel Iloilo has nice rooms – big and classy. The color scheme though in browns and neutrals makes our room calm and relaxing. The beds are bigger too, perfect for us with growing kids.

Yes, just like most hotel rooms nowadays, the bathroom has a clear glass wall to create an illusion of a much bigger space. Don’t you worry, you can still keep your modesty by pulling down the blinds.

My view inside the bathroom.

I love the bathroom especially the marble vanity except that the bottom corner of the shower was not properly cleaned. I’m meticulous with that corner because I know how hard it is to clean that part. ¬†Other than that, the room is flawless.

One of their key facilities is their pool located at the 7th Floor.

The size is just right. My kids like it because it has a deep part but still safe. Here, I told them to get out of the water while utility crew were fixing the lights. A kid got a minor scratch. They were quick to respond though.

Nice pool deck. My kids love their food – ” Worth the wait“, they said. With the view of Iloilo Business Park, I love hanging out at the pool deck.
