We keep returning to the Sails because the food is delicious. The Sails is spotlessly clean even when busy and the service is excellent. We choose from the menu or have the buffet and either way the recipes are tasty and delicious. The head chef...can be seen checking the buffet to insure the best quality. The food handlers are wearing masks and gloves for added safety. The wait staff are incredible. You feel so welcome. Bryan, Jake, Nigelle, Rina, Ella, Rochelle, Chrystal, Julie, Kate, Farrah, Fatima, and really everyone else who also works there deliver awesomeness to the customers on a daily basis. A special mention to all the trainees who work so hard as they’re learning and contribute to the really high level of dining excellence that we always experience at the Sails.More

Absolutely no wow factor to the buffet. Not a crab in sight. Hard to figure where everyone eats in this hotel, as the main restaurant is small and seldom full. At leat when we were there.More

Ok, I love their buffet but there is a la carte dining too. Every night the buffet features choices from a different area of the globe like Mediterranean, Asian, and of course Native Filipino, and more. The food is superb and the place is spotless...but what keeps us coming back is the service. We’re constantly impressed with the Sails and I’d stake my reputation on the 5 star evaluation I’m giving them. I’d like to give a special shout out to some of the individuals who work there but there are so many wonderful employees. Total team effort from Chef Bouby and Sir Jeryl , Sir Ronald, Nigelle, Jake, Ajay, Brian, Riña, Fatima, Farrah, the cooks, the waitstaff. They are all awesome. You have to try this place.More

This is the second visit to the Movenpick Hotel and one great reason to return is the Sails restaurant morning buffet. The mixed Euro-Asian chefs put on a wide range of delicious choices and all East-West cuisines are represented. Amazing service! We came back for...a business meeting later in the afternoon and were treated graciously. Heading there again NOW! Cheers! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟More

White the Ibiza beach club might be an over-priced, mediocre restaurant. The Sails takes it to another level with its brunch/lunch buffet. Everything is fresh, well presented and delicious! There is something for everyone in every cuisine and its well priced. Well for what you...get its well priced. The al carte menue is well balanced and features one great burger!More

Breakfast buffet is included in our must try. There is a wide array of food on the selection. From different breads & jams, to congee & noodles, with choices of typical filipino breakfast (insert danggit, longganisa, eggs and bacon), plus tropical fruits and kids corner...to enjoy - cereals, fruit loops, cakes & brownies are all delectable. Morning "shots" are also surprising. For dinner, we tried the dinner buffet at sails. We enjoyed their baked scallops and clams. The selection is of wide variety. Asian cuisines such as vietnam noodles up to hongkong siew mai and japanese makis & sushis are widely available. Lechon is there. Even western pizza and 6 choices of drinks were all confusing to try. :) mind you, there’s unli heineken beer too! Dessert section wont leave you frustrated! There’s tiramisu, panna cotta, pastries and even filipino sweets are up to try - its not yet Christmas but puto bumbong is available. :)More

Good food and decent breakfast buffet, even if it's not extensive. Korean and Japanese food items for breakfast. It can get busy but the turnover is quick, so no issues with getting a table. Pretty good all around, no complaints here.More
