Staycation: Acacia Hotel

If you still remember, last year I celebrated my birthday in Acaci and this year we had staycation in Acacia Hotel.

Read: Acaci

I saw the “The Long Weekend” promo in their Facebook page so I inquired and asked if they have promo for Friday since my birthday falls on Friday. Fortunately they have Friday Madness so I immediately reserved the date.

Days before my birthday, I’ve been contemplating whether to cancel or not my reservation because of the Typhoon Maring and Habagat but my husband insisted that we will celebrate my birthday in Acacia Hotel rain or shine.

But God is so good because He gave me good weather last August 23, 2013. We had lunch in Outback Steakhouse and I bought my birthday cake in Contis and off we went to Acacia Hotel.

As expected, the service was good from parking, reservation and they even ushered us up to our room while informing us the facilities, amenities and location of the pool, gym, restaurant and others. You have to tap your key card every time you use the elevator.

I can see the pool from our window so my son was so excited to plunge but my husband doesn’t want to swim, “mainit pa daw” so my son swim in the bath tub muna. At 4PM, we went to the swimming pool and stayed there for almost two hours. There’s complimentary drink so no worries if you’re thirsty.

At 8PM, we received free cookies.

The most exciting part of staycation is the buffet breakfast. Upon seated, they will ask you if you want hot chocolate or coffee. Good thing that my son has no charge yet because he only ate one roll and silken tofu aka taho. We took our time in eating our food para sulit. =)

Then my son had last minute swimming before we check-out. Actually, my son doesn’t want to go home anymore. He wanted us to extend our staycation but of course we have to go home at baka mapambayad ko pa pang tuition niya. Hehehe!


1. Service is good.
2. Bed and pillows are comfortable.
3. Location is good because there’s fastfood, grocery and restaurants around the area. 
4. If you want to go to malls, there are free shuttles.
5. Free wifi.
6. There's bath tub in the bathroom.


1. No bidet and exhaust fan in the bathroom.
2. Children swimming pool is too small.

    looks like the kiddo had a blast, your family is really great, your happiness shows in the pictures.

    1. Thanks Mel! Bago pa nga lang yan, macheck nga minsan kung may promo. hehehe!

  3. Belated happy birthday! Nice to hear you had a good time at your staycation. =)

    Sana they found out it was your birthday. Baka they might give you a token or something. At Sofitel, they usually give the celebrant a cake. My mom got when when they found out it was her birthday (she used her credit card to pay for an extra bed kasi). Tapos they were so nice pa, na they didn't charge us na lang din extra for that. So sweet.

    Then this year, we celebrated the Little One's birthday there too. They overheard us teasing our baby happy birthday so they confirmed if it was true. When we said yes, they brought us a cake rin from their bakery and a small gift for our daughter. May song and dance number pa sa room! So sweet tlaga. =)

    1. Thanks Tin! Nice nga kung may ganyan noh kasi never ko pa naexperience yan kahit sa restaurant. Di lang siguro sila ganun pa kasensitive kasi may cake ako dala, pd nila tanungin kung may occassion ba or reason of stay di ba. hehehe!

      I want Sofitel sana matry ko din magstaycation or magbuffet dun. :)
