A Weekend Staycation at Alcoves Apartment

It was the last minute when I decided to fly in manila via Clark airport from Caticlan/Boracay since I got a cheap airfare round trip compared to NAIA.  

I was stumbled upon it on the internet and I found this property perfect for my staycation. I filed a double day off in my work and fly.

Since my landing is at Clark airport and I needed to travel almost 3 hours to Manila, but before I headed, I just dropped by in Sm City, Pampanga to meet my friend who's living in Lubao to join me in my Lunch at Cabalen Restaurant  
The room I booked is located in Greenbelt Radisson Building. I find this place more accessible since it's just less than a 10-minute walk to Greenbelt 1.  I arrived at the hotel past 8 in the evening because I left in Pampanga at 3pm and got stuck in the traffic. 
The check-in process was so smooth after presenting my Id, the guard on-duty allowed me to go to my booked room A3. The alcoves team just emailed me the number combination of the door lock. I was surprised when I opened the door because one of the Alcoves team patiently waited for my arrival.

Ms. Dave was waiting and welcomed me to my booked room. She gave me a short briefing of Alcoves before she bid goodbye. The room had a complete set of cookware & cookery that was perfect for cooking my lunch the next day. There's also a good wifi connection, an extra pillow, blanket, and towel on the cabinet that is ready to use.
After settling all, I felt hungry, but I was not worrying about where to eat because downstairs is two 24/7 convenience stores, so I grabbed a set meal, brought it to my room, and ate to satisfy my tummy. :)   
The next day morning, I decided to a quick dip in their pool located on the 8th floor of the building. 

After swimming, I went to the Rustan market in Greenbelt 1 to buy some ingredients for a lunch menu. I cooked Tinolang Manok and Chicken Adobo.

The Alcoves team customer service is very responsive to the request, and they make it expedite.

I informed the team that I would leave early morning on my third day because I need to catch my flight in the Clark airport back to Boracay and their response in a minute.

Overall, I enjoyed so much my staycation with the Alcoves Apartment.

It's a fresh water.


Superior Room I was searching on the internet on where to spend a night, since my flight to Manila is early in the morning. Luckily, I found this hotel. A budget friendly and offers great service.
