The Bayleaf Intramuros has a great location - a haven in busy, chaotic Manila, next to the historic wall in the old town. The rooms are very comfortable, and we were lucky enough to have a great view of the golf course with the city as a backdrop. The rooftop bar offers even more amazing views and has plenty of seating. The restaurant offers both Filipino and Western breakfast options, meaning I was able to have cereal, a croissant and 2 pieces of fish.
The staff are pleasant and helpful, but I wished they would use their own initiative when making suggestions - when we'd ask for recommendations for somewhere to eat or something to do, every staff member would pull out a map and circle the exact same things in the exact same order. It made it seem a little ingenuine, and instead like they've been told to recommend those places rather than pointing out personal preferences. This is a very minor observation though, and I want to reiterate that all staff that we encountered were polite and friendly. A special thanks to Lance, and to Alelie for helping us to use the Grab app!More
