Overall good. I like Tivoli Gardens and have stayed here before - most of my Manila friends stay here.
The good points - everything that was advertised was there. The TV and wifi worked fine. All the kitchen utensils including gas in the gas cylinder for cooking.
The not so good is that the apartment needs some maintenance; The AC leaks a lot more than AC units usually do (it floods the balcony if you don't keep emptying the bucket). The hose under the sink became detached and flooded the kitchen floor so it needs a hose clamp for proper fitting. The table legs need repairing as it is about to fall over and difficult to sit and eat dinner. A better blanket and spare sheets & pillow cases for the bed would be better but we brought our own spare blanket.
Arad advised me I would need ID for registering for the pool usage and I thought that it meant I had to show ID or give a copy - but when I arrived (Marian, Arads assistant) told me she was keeping my ID until I leave! It was lucky I had my drivers license spare because I would not be giving away my passport. Its the first time I have ever been asked by a host to keep my ID for the duration of the stay.
Other than these little surprises I would still rate the stay in the unit as good.
My experience when I went on vacation last June, it was very good. The condo was cleaned and the tenant has given us accommodation well and safety first, So I would like to say thank you to Mr. Gilbert Bouquiren (Host) and Tita Bong (tenant) and nice to meet you. I hope we would see you next vacation but I rather would like to stay at closer to the establishment like walking distance to outside on a tricycle area.
