Midas Hotel: casino and pool opening date?

When I previously stayed at the former Hyatt, now Midas Hotel and casino along Roxas blvd, Pasay City, I noticed how what I assumed was once a pool area at the rear of the hotel was a 'wreck' with bricks or tiles strewn everywhere.

Has anyone an idea as to when the pool and the casino may open?

Just had buffet dinner there 2 days ago and the swimming pool is still under construction. I doubt if it will be open within this month.

Is there any update on either the pool or the casino as to when either will be open?

Keg, did you grab the MetroDeal at P999 for the buffet. How was it?

@ leftovertoo: We got a cheaper deal months ago but that's the same thing being offered at Metrodeal. I would say that it is just average but the quality of food offerings are good so your Php999 deal is fair enough. Buffet dinner at Diamond Hotel is better and the price is also at that range.

I just got a word from a reservation staff of Midas Hotel and the pool is still under construction and she can't even commit if it will be open within this month or next. This is ridiculous, then can build a whole new hotel for that very long time it is taking them just to open a pool. It better be an Olympic size pool.

From what I saw on my last visit some months ago (in 2011) the pool area was a mess: tiles everywhere. I imagine that's one contributing factor to the time it is taking to renovate and reopen it.

#6 I think what you are referring to is the new Hyatt Hotel & Casino (near the Robinsons Place Ermita, Malate) - which is still open. This hotel is on Roxas Blvd just across Heritage Hotel.
