FABulous staycation at The Legend Villas, Mandaluyong City

It’s been an annual tradition of my high school bestfriends to meet before Christmas and have our exchange gifts. For the last years, we have been having our night out in one of our houses, but this year, we decided to try something new. We tried “staycation” last December 23, 2015. Staycation has been an option for those who would like to feel that they are on vacation, but are actually staying in a hotel in city, with all the amenities it has to offer. After looking for an affordable, yet quality hotels to stay in, we ended up in The Legend Villas in Pioneer, Mandaluyong City. For only Php 4,200 (that’s Php 1,050/pax for the four of us), we got to have a pleasurable stay!

Why is The Legend Villas a great choice? Here are the five reasons.

First, the space. Unlike in other hotels, The Legend Villas provides space where you can stroll, especially at night, while enjoying the romantic lights and the Spanish-inspired fa├žade of the two-storey sprawling buildings.

Second, the rooms. I particularly liked the room that we’re able to book. It has 4 beds where you can comfortably sleep. Refrigerator, electric kettle, cups and saucers, packs of coffee and tea, and personal hygiene stuff, were provided. I also love the idea that the dresser, the toilet, the sink and mirror, and the bathroom are separate from one another. This means that 4 people can do different things at the same time! How efficient!

Third, the reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi. We’re able to listen to Spotify and watch videos in Youtube without buffering!

Fourth, the amenities. The Legend Villas Hotel has a gym (though we’re not able to use it because we don’t have gym shoes!) and swimming pool with Jacuzzi! We dipped into the pool and Jacuzzi and had our usual photoshoot, as if it’s summer in December!

Fifth, the breakfast buffet at Lola Maria Restaurant! The Legend Villas Hotel offers a wide selection of breakfast buffet – from congee, soup, salads, rice meals, noodles, fruits, and desserts, among others. If you love food, then you will definitely enjoy your stay here.

At the end of the day, it is not the place that matters. It only enhances the mood. What’s more important is to share the moment with your favorite people in the world.

Merry Christmas from my best friends to yours!

(Take note, I walked from MRT-Guadalupe Station to The Legend Villas in Mandaluyong, which is approximately 5.3 kilometers, because of heavy traffic. The effort was all worth it, though.)
