Staycation at Parque Espana

It was a rainy Saturday afternoon and my daughter is dying to get off her school  activity because of our booking at Parque Espana.  The hotel isn't that modern but Parque Espana is clean and well-equipped with the standard amenities.

Though the building was quite old, we weren’t bothered that much. The internet connection in the lobby is fast. Parque Espana offers free transportation to Alabang Town Center and Festival Mall which to me is another plus! Cordial staff give you a number to call so that they can pick you up after your stroll. They also have airport pick up and drop off shuttle service available upon request.

My brother got a three-bedroom suite.  This is one of the two smaller rooms in  the 120-square meter  hotel room.

I suggest that you avail of their suite room. It has 3BR units, which is good enough for big, extended family like ours. It is wide and spacious for group activities or celebrations. Best for intimate gatherings. Those in the upper floors have less A/C unit noise.

She loves the comfy queen size mattress in one of the two smaller rooms assigned to us for the night.  We had a spectacular view of the busy Alabang skyline.

I love how the bedrooms, dining and living areas were set up. Staying there felt like we were still in our own home. All the rooms were spic and span. And did I mention that it is fully furnished? Only the washing machine is missing.

There were three bathrooms.  This is the bathroom located inside the master's bedroom.

Love the fact that two of the bathroom unit has hair dryers.

There is a six-seater dining table leading to the spacious living room.

Bistro del Cielo offers intercontinental breakfast

She doesn't like that the frankfurters were a bit spicy for her tastes!

They serve great food options at the roof deck. Aside from the picturesque view wile dining in, it is also a place where you can relax or dip in for a swim.

Special Bonding at Shakey's

It is one of those few family get-togethers once again and the whole brood was up to a hefty dinner treat.
We decided to go to Shakey's for a tummy-filling activity. And yeah! We were not disappointed!
The young group loves pasta so this creamy Carbonara was a great way to start the feast!

If you are craving for pizza and pasta, head off to Shakey's for that special bonding over good food!
