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.

We visited Hotel H2O last June 26 exactly during the Salamat PRRD, luckily the roads were not closed yet. The rooms are maintained well, until you open the bathroom, the walls are a bit moldy. We took the room facing the bay, we didn't experience the hot room as mentioned by previous reviewers, I guess they fixed the a/c situation. Bed was comfy and clean. The TV they have are 30+ inch, so you know these have been there since they opened 14 years ago. The food served by their restaurant is good but somewhat pricy. Just wish they served more than just seafood for breakfast. The swimming pool, is not good. It looks more like a pool for sea lions and is quite far from the rooms. I wouldn't recommend it if you are finicky with hotel pools, you will want to pass on this. Overall, not extremely bad, but there are better hotels in the vicinity. Would we come back? 50/50.

1. Terrible AC on 3141 and 3321.. Very weak and noisy.. The utility guy said "nilalabanan nang araw yung lamig nang AC kayya po mainit.. Maya-maya po pag wala nang araw lalamig na yan.." 2. Services were too slow.. A bucket of ice needs to be followed-up a couple of times, waited for an hour or more before its delivered.. 3. Internet was continuously disconnecting. Speed is ok though somehow.. 4. My family members were separated from end-to-end of the regular room and the suite room.. IN spite the fact that we came early so we can have at least a room near each other. Seems like the front desk totally forgot about how many we were and had no choice but to put us at the last standard room..

Excellent The hotel h2o and view of the sea us excellent! Everyone here is top-notch. The view is outstanding, and the food serve at the morning is excellent. Lovely Hotel overlooking the blue sea, some rooms face the sea. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. The Restaurant down by the sea, which specializes in Asian food was great. Good quality food and good staff/waiters. The white moon bar in the second floor outside was also very cool, live music in the evenings overlooking the blue sea, We will be back again.

I love this hotel, their room has an aquarium and it's so satisfying to watch. I also tried their hotbed and fish spa treatments and it was so relaxing. They have a restaurant called makan makan, the food is a bit pricey but it's worth the price. This hotel deserves a 5 rate.

The hotel is very unique because of the aquarium inside. For the price, it is affordable, it has an inclusion of 2 ocean park tickets, two breakfast. I will recommend Hotel H2o to my friends and relatives, I guarantee they will enjoy it.

Everything was great at this hotel. Amazing staff that is friendly and makes customers feel welcome. The staff was the nicest people. They were always friendly and asked how our stay was going every time we walked in the door. They were also able to recommend places to get any type of meal that we needed as well. And we went to the White Moon Bar and had an amazing time. The atmosphere and service were great. I will definitely must do if you are looking for a good time. I definitely come back in this hotel.
