Staycation at The Bellevue Manila

Today is the first day of August and a few weeks from now I’ll be celebrating my birthday but no definite plans yet. This reminds me that I haven’t posted my hubby’s birthday celebration last June. Hehehe! We had a staycation in The Bellevue Manila Hotel before the first day of school, oh yes, huling hirit ng summer vacation. 

Last summer, I was checking for different resorts where we could celebrate his birthday but we had home improvement last May and there was an unexpected tuition increase so we decided to have a simple celebration instead. But God is so good, a week before his birthday he received a reward from his company, “overnight stay in any hotel worth P5000”. 

I immediately search for hotels where we could spend his birthday. We both decided to stay in any hotels in Alabang area para malapit lang and we chose The Bellevue Manila. We booked the cheapest room which is De Luxe Room for P5,500, there was no promo on the date that we reserved. Sayang hindi umabot sa Father’s Day promo. 

Sharing with you the photos of the room. We stayed in the Main Wing where rooms are not yet improved. Just ask them if you want to stay in new rooms but of course, the rate is not the same.

After staying in the room for two hours, we went to Vue Bar to get our welcome drinks and swim too. 

Then we went to Pastry Corner to buy cake and ensaymada, good thing they have a small cake. I love their ensaymada, sulit for P65. The Truffle Cake P150 was gone in 60 seconds. lol 

Happy Birthday!
My favorite part of a staycation is buffet breakfast, we had breakfast at CafĂ© d’Asie. Good thing my son is still free or else lugi na naman. (6 yrs old below)

We enjoyed our staycation and I told my husband na next time galingan niya ulit para may free hotel ulit kami sa birthday ko. #pressure


1. Service is good. 

2. We don’t have a bathtub at home so we really like it if the bathroom has a tub.
3. Bidet and phone beside the toilet are available. 
4. Swimming pool is big.
5. Free Wifi 
6. I love that they have hot chocolate during breakfast.
7. Pillows are soft and fluffy and the bed is comfortable. 
8. There are fast food and restaurants near the hotel. 
9. Free shuttle is available. 


1. At that time there was ongoing construction beside the hotel so we were not able to use this pool. Sayang mas type namin ito.

  1. mukhang nagenjoy ng husto si ethan... sayang ako 2nd place kaya 3K worth dinner with the family ang nakuha ko. Pero manong Ariel really deserved the 1st place. :)

  2. I haven't tried staying over at Bellevue though I've seen the rooms and have eaten their buffet breakfast twice. We've wanted to do a staycation there the whole time we lived in the South but we just didn't have the chance. We played in their bar upstairs for months back then, I wonder if it looks the same now.

  3. Your photos make me want to have a staycation at Bellevue. I hope their pool is ready for use by then.

  4. Wow! Awesome photos! I would love to have a staycation with my family at Bellevue soon :3

  5. I've never been inside Bellevue, which is kinda shocking since I've lived in the south for most of my life. I really hope we can visit the place soon.

  6. Ang saya naman that your husband's company gave him a free hotel stay! Belated happy birthday! :) Looks like your family had a blast! :)

  7. We're booked here for Father's Day. So excited!

    The room looks nice and comfortable even though you were given a room sa old wing (?).

    That ensaymada looks so yummy. Mag-hoard ako niyan next week! hahaha

    1. Yes, old wing pa because I don't want to pay extra fee for the new room. hehehe! But the room still looks nice. Don't forget the ensaymada! Enjoy! :)
