Followers of my posts will recall I was somewhat scathing of what Limketkai Luxe had become ... from an amazing hotel when it first opened to a not very nice experience in following years. Well, I'm delighted to announce, the old Limketkai Luxe we loved so much when it first opened is back !!! Congratulations to what we believe to be the new management.
I cannot speak highly enough of "the new" Limketkai. Their service is exceptional (a special thank you to our waitress, Mary Grace, who remembered us from all those years ago and our room attendant, Ken De La Rita - both amazing employees deserving of special mention). Interesting to note is that all staff we spoke to thought highly of their supervisors and management. That is one big compliment!
We stayed at Limketkai Luxe from October 23 2019 to November 5 2019. As we had two teenage children, we had two rooms. Both rooms were spotlessly clean and kept that way during our stay thanks to Ken. During our stay, breakfast was consistently good and plentiful. It was nice to have a small variance on a day to day basis.
During our stay we also took advantage of a family gathering poolside - again, staff were excellent and tables positioned next to the pool exactly as requested. Food and drink very reasonably priced - a nice surprise as hotels of this stature often charge 'an arm and a leg'. We also took advantage of an all-you-can-eat buffet and invited family to share with us - all 18 of us. Again, exceptional service; more than enough food and all of a very high standard.
Limketkai Luxe is well located with SM Mall and Limketkai Mall right next door and Centrio a short walk or three minute taxi ride. Jollibbee, a kids favourite, is downstairs as is a pharmacy (take the lift to the 2nd floor and exit). Starbucks and several excellent restaurants can also be accessed within a five minute walk from the 2nd floor exit.
We are regular travellers and usually stay in the same accomodation when revisiting. It was delightful to see Limketkai return to it's old self and rest assured, "we will be back" :)
Thank you for a wonderful stay
