This place is perfect if you are doing business in the Rockwell area of Makati. You are right next to the powerplant mall so you don't need to brave the Manilla traffic to take a gym class or do any shopping, and the fact that it is serviced apartments means that you can be as autonomous as you like (cooking / washing) or use the services provided. The staff were all incredibly helpful and it has a nice cafe attached where you can also take meetings. I was able to have breakfast and host meetings here at the same time which meant I could be more productive in a short business trip. I've found this difficult in other hotels with buffet breakfasts etc.

I didn't use the pool or gym as I go to a studio in the powerplant so cannot comment on those.

I have stayed here many times in the last four years. Great location and room size with friendly service and close to the Powerplant Mall --tunnel aces too. The pool is huge and well laid out. The breakfast is always excellent.

We recently stayed at Aruga by Rockwell to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. We booked a two bedroom apartment that was not only spacious, but had three bathrooms which we weren't expecting. The apartment was spotlessly clean and wonderfully quiet (ask for apartment 704 as it is at the back of the property, overlooking the pool and not near the elevators).

The staff were wonderfully attentive and went out of their way to help us at every opportunity. Special mention to Carol at reception who not only ensured we saved money by ordering us a "Grab" car one morning, but she also booked our return trip from the Mall of Asia and was in constant contact with the driver to make sure he found us safe and sound. She always had a smile on her face and was always happy to investigate where we were going and what we needed each day so she could offer more assistance.

Another special mention goes to Jose who was at breakfast each morning. He knew we liked one particular table and made sure he put a "Reserved" sign on it for us. He only ever asked once if we would like tea, coffee or juice and each morning thereafter he automatically delivered them to our table with our being asked. His smile and warm greeting started our day on a positive note. He was also pleased that he had the opportunity of helping us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary morning boy delivering our champagne and making a wonderful show of opening it at our table (it was 7:30am but he didn't flinch at all, just smiled and poured it with a huge smile.

I cannot thank Carol & Jose for all they did for my husband and I as well as our son, it is because of them we will be back one day and perhaps stay a bit longer

The Aruga at Rockwell was probably one of the best resort we've stayed at on our trip while island hopping. The suites come with Princess and Bear themes for the kids. It has 2 bedroom suites that are very spacious. It comes with it's own kitchen, living room, washer and dryer and even 3 full bathrooms. The breakfast buffet in the morning was really good but it does lack in the variety department. Other than that, the hotel staff was very friendly and very attentive. I wasnt able to use the amenities like the gym or pool because of the short time we were here but I'd definitely come back again.

For me a visit to Manila is not complete without a stay at Aruga by Rockwell.
The location is first class, quiet surroundings, private roads and adjacent to the up market Power Plant Mall with a wide choice of restaurants, cinema and a good supermarket.. Also iwithin walking distance to the bars and restaurants of Poblacion.
Being a serviced apartment you have the flexibility of either eating out or bringing back your own tfood to eat or cook.
The rooms are well furnished and equipped with quality fittings.
Good gym and pleasant pool.
Being away from home for the holidays we were made exceptionally welcome during this period.
Very friendly and welcoming front office and lobby, big thanks to Paul for his special assistance.
Exceptional service from Mark and his houkeeping team of Rosalie and Crisa, no request was too much trouble.
A great alternative to the five star hotels of Makati if you are looking for a little more personal space and tranquility.
