Microtel By Wyndham UP Technohub: The Face of "Next Generation" Microtel Hotels

This hotel exudes freshness anywhere you look that it felt as if it was just build last year. Its location greatly helped since it is literally within the confines of U.P. North Science and Technology Park. That means the area is surrounded by old Acacia trees which makes you feel that you are not in the Metro. This area is actually leased to Ayala Land a few years ago which it developed into an Information Technology hub. Ayala did a pretty good job at preserving the acacia trees and keeping the buildings not taller than 8 storeys high so you feel more in nature than in the city.

I focused too much on this aspect because the surrounding area definitely set the tone on the overall feel of any hotel. Its triangular orientation with an open lawn in the middle gives the hotel another fresh dimension. The green grass on the lawn I immediately noticed upon entering the hotel door thanks to a minimalist two-storey lobby with floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

Add a warm smile at the reception, the quick check-in, hallways  dotted with modern paintings, access to room corridors secured by a key-operated door, a nice restaurant, a convention hall, rooms as newly designed as one can get, a rooftop pool, what more can you ask for from a 3-star hotel. A modern hotel that is still true to the Microtel experience. I call it the face of "next generation" Microtel Hotels.

TRAVEL ADVISORY: Stay Away from Apo Reef or Travel at Your Own Risk

I am sharing the experience ee had in Apo Reef last May so that reader will know. Yes, I was finally able to set foot on Apo Reef on 2nd attempt but it was also ruined thanks partly to the unaccommodating and unsympathetic local tourism office of Sablayan Occidental Mindoro to which Apo Reef is part of.

Due to recent DENR resolution, only 100 pax per day are allowed to camp in Apo Reef.

That's where the problem could start since the reef system is a popular tourist attraction. So if you don't secure your permit prior to arrival, you can only day tour here regardless if you traveled halfway around the world just to get here. We were a group of around 30 pax mostly from Manila and it took us something like 16 hours to get here so you can just imagine our frustration.

I am not passing all the blame on the local tourism office of Sablayan. Surely, outlr our group tour organizer and our local ( Sablayan resident) partner were mostly at fault but I feel that the tourism office should have been there to facilitate our tour but they made it harder for us instead. For that, I expressed my wrath during the call when they convened for an emergency meeting as a result of my incident report letter slash complaint.

Thank you for almost ruining our vacation. Pero sablay kayo. You cannot stop happy peeps from having fun. But still you caused us inconvenience. This one is for you.
