    Had a relaxing staycation and great time watching the play "Miss Saigon".

    Staff were very helpful. Was walking around the buffet area when one of the staff named Philip approached me and said if I need any help. He also gave a brief description of the various beef roasts and how they were prepared.

    Great mall to wander about in air conditioned comfort admiring the art and architectural details. It is immaculately clean. Try the spa hidden away on the fourth floor…great treatments for a fraction of what you’d pay elsewhere.

    i was invited to speak in a recent event held in this hotel. it was my first time to step foot inside. upon entering, the grand casino would actually catch your sight. not my thing.

    the venue was at the grand ballroom situated on the second floor. to reach the area, one has to pass thru another lavish display of slot machines, roulettes and other casino equipment. there are also several stalls selling signature brands for bags, shoes and apparel.

    the main ballroom can accommodate more than 500 guests. but for this event, it was split to also hold booth exhibits at the rear. the audio system was superb.

    food was, of course, excellent. tha wait staff knew their tasks and very dedicated in accomplishing them. cheerful attitude as well despite the very busy workload. kudos to COD servers.

    and oh, internet all you can for the free wifi. parking fee is not collected as well. woohoo! but i have yet to experience an overnight stay.

    The moment I stepped into Okada, I didn't feel very welcomed. The staff were so snob! You will not feel the supposed warmth of a luxury hotel. They don't greet you when they passed you by. They also did not allow early check-in, which is quite understandable if there are no rooms available yet. But I really doubt there are no rooms available yet because, let's face it, this is a big hotel. The way the reception also told me this made me feel very insulted; it's like she said that "you know the standard check-in is 3pm right, I have no rooms for you yet. Get out of here and wait". She didn't even offer that I could wait on any restaurant inside the hotel. Nothing. I have stayed in several 5-star hotels, and this is the very first time that I waited for the actual check-in time. Don't you value your customers' satisfaction?

    They also did not grant a higher floor room that I requested before hand, again, quite understandable, but it just added more minus points to my initial disappointment.

    I also went inside the casino for membership circle. My mistake to take video since it was not allowed, but the way I was apprehended by the crew was so rude! It felt like I was a criminal.

    To Okada's management, you have to revisit your staff's attitude as this does not represent you very well. Read other reviews and you'll understand.

    == Location and Access ==
    Metro Card Club might be a bit of a trek from the airport due to Manila's notorious traffic, but it's well worth it. Located in Ortigas Pasig, it's surrounded by major shopping centers like SM Megamall, Robinson's Galleria, and Shangri La Plaza, making it a shopper's paradise. I recommend booking a Grab or Taxi a bit earlier to compensate for traffic.

    == Game Options ==
    For beginners and budget-conscious players, Metro offers incredibly low-stakes games starting at just $0.20/$0.40 USD with a maximum buy-in of $40 USD. While the stakes stay relatively small due to the local crowd, Metro stands out for its exciting tournaments with substantial prize pools. Daily and weekly tournaments are also available, making it appealing even to international travelers.

    == Service and Experience ==
    Metro Card Club excels with a high number of staff. Non-alcoholic beverages are complimentary, and chip runners and massages are readily available. While dealers are very efficient, there are no card shuffling machines that can slow down the game. Waiting lists are quite reasonable.

    ==Rake and Rewards==
    Given wages in the Philippines are generally lower, the rake is considered quite high. For cash games, it's 10% capped at 4 Big Blinds. The tournament rake is more reasonable, but note there is a 3% prize pool surcharge. I would recommend checking their Facebook page to see the tournament schedule beforehand.

    Quite expensive to play in all tables I saw had P1000 for bacarrat that's $20 per game and they have a lot of bacarrat tables.
    I didn't see a black jack table
    Some slots
    And machine games
    Only one floor because the 2nd floor is under renovation.
    Hopefully they will have 300 peso or 500 peso black jack or bacarrat.
    There's two roulette tables and mostly 1000 peso bacarrat game.
    There's no sicbo or other fun games like color game or wheel game for small bets.
    It makes me think that it's not a game anymore coz it's so expensive to play.
    Unlike other casinos which have 100,300 and 500.
    Not enjoyable for me.
