We attended a Birthday Party and the drop off point was far from the reception at Pacifica. It looked like a maze where one has to go through several passage ways. The reception was average. They served laksa soup but no spoons available at the tables. The women`s comfort room was not used because water overflowed from the tanks.

The parking pavement is not cemented but bricks were used so it is uneven and water pools are plenty. The pathway to the hotel is dirty since many excursionists go to ocean park but no one was seen cleaning the area. The drop off is far from the hotel front desk. The room is nice because of the aquarium. The... More

We were here for a few days for fun and to also visit the US Embassy. The embassy was within walking distance. We had an enjoyable stay here. For the price, it was a good deal. The rooms were very unique and most importantly clean.

Hotel is attached to Manila Ocean Park with same gate entrance and parking. Early morning, noise starts for the school students coming to the park. No privacy if you want to sit in the outdoor restaurant because of noise, queues of students passing from a place to the other. Well, breakfast buffet is wonderful with nice staff. We booked a...

I had to visit the US Embassy in Manila and wanted to stay close to the Embassy. My wife wanted to visit Ocean Park, so we decided to say at H2O. It was close to the Embassy and right in Ocean Park, so as they say, "I was able to kill two birds with one stone". When we went to... More

We checked in today to H2O hotel, it is about 2 km away from the city centre, and we found mediterranean restaurants serving Halal food about 1.4 km from the hotel. The hotel and the ocean park have the same owner and have the same entrance, so the hotel was so much crowded with hundreds of students and visitors coming... More

Absolutely fantastic experience here! Very kind, helpful and attentive staff! Clean rooms with a large bed and bathroom. The aquarium runs the length and most of the height of one wall. You could spend all day watching fish from your bed, if you want! Also, we received some coupons for dining discounts and free spa services. Attached to Manila Ocean... More

We managed to get an Aqua Room with access to 9 attractions at the Manila Ocean Park for only Php 2999! Since it didn’t include breakfast, we just paid P300 per person to avail of their buffet add-on.

We arrived late, so didn't get to experience the full hotel offerings. Good clean room, with good room facilities. The gym was decent. We went out to eat, so only experienced the breakfast. We had the park view, so got to see a bit of the marine show.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel H2O is the first and only marine-themed urban resort hotel in the Philippines. Opened on April 10, 2010, the hotel is part of the Manila Ocean Park complex in the Philippine capital’s historic Rizal Park. It has been designated as the official residence for guests and patrons of Manila Ocean Park.Every part of Hotel H2O has a connection to its namesake element, water – from its next-door proximity to Manila Ocean Park; to its location on the edge of Manila Bay; to its signature aquarium wall that adorns the inner guest rooms and grand ballroom; to the seafood specialties of its main F&B outlet, Makan Makan Asian Food Village; to the healing, negative-ion treatments of its wellness center, Zenyu Eco Spa. All these make Hotel H2O perhaps the most visually distinctive urban property in the country today. ... more   less
