I always make it a point to read the Trip Advisor whenever i visit a place for the very first time.
From here, I get to know the must visits of the place and of course, the nice hotels where me and my family could stay in.
Now, Las Palmas is not the newest nor the chicest in this area.
I was almost ready to book with the newer ones.
But in the end, I considered the "homey" feel of the hotel not to mention its big pool within their property.
Booked the most expensive room (which was still cheap by Manila standard) and my little family of three had a grand time.
The people were okay but were not really the "chatty" types. Our conversations were confined to a smile-a yes-or a no kind of thing.
They were kind enough to keep our luggage for us when we went to Sta. Ana the next day.
