Richmonde Hotel Iloilo – Philippines Family Vacation


Richmonde Hotel Iloilo – Lovely hotel for a family stay

Our family had a four-day, three-night stay at the Richmonde Hotel Iloilo and it was just a grand accommodation for the four of us. It is definitely one of the best Iloilo hotels for a family to stay.

Since we stayed for three nights, we were able to enjoy the hotel’s amenities, most especially the swimming pool, where the kids spent most of their time. Richmonde Hotel Iloilo is a property of Megaworld. There is elegance, warmth, and simple luxury. While it is grander than home, it surely feels like it is actually home.

Richmonde Hotel Iloilo Location

The Richmonde Hotel Iloilo is centrally located within the continuously developing Iloilo Business Park. This vibrant real estate development by Megaworld Corporation is a 72-hectare mixed-use master-planned community development located in Mandurriao, Iloilo City, Philippines.

Since Richmonde Hotel Iloilo is in the middle of the business park, the location and view are very nice and strategic. You have everything you need within your reach. It is also very near SM City Iloilo. Moreover, the area is very safe. We enjoyed taking a stroll in the evenings with the kids. There were also bambikes for rent that you can use around the vicinity.

Lobby/Common Area

The lobby is spacious, well-lighted and feels very welcoming. There are several chairs where guests can wait for their turns to be served. To the left is the bar and to the right is the restaurant where the breakfast buffet is served. Smells good, too. It’s so clean and you can feel quiet luxury when you enter their doors.

What we also love is the atrium on the 5th floor. Since our room was on the 5th floor, it was like having our own grand living room! As in! It was so wide and luxurious. The kids totally loved it here. Just imagine waking up and going out to this area every day for four days! It was giant playground for them!

Room and Toiletries

We had the Deluxe Room at Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, which was quite spacious. There were two queen-sized beds, which we put beside each other to make a really big bed.

The kids totally loved the huge room. It had the usual– TV, desk, stationery, phone, and other things. It felt so clean and comfortable.

This is the sight in front of the bed. The TV looks so small because the room is quite big.

My only complaint is the glass panel that is bigger than the wooden table. That means that there were several inches of the glass that was jutting out of the desk and it was quite dangerous if you have young kids. Thankfully, our little Shane was able to avoid it, even while running around the room quite often.

I forgot the brand of the toiletries, but I remembered that they had organic products. The packaging just looks generic, so I had to read the label at the back.

The kids went swimming everyday. We bought some water toys for them and so they totally enjoyed their time there.


The staff at Richmonde Hotel Iloilo are pretty nice. They don’t know I am a blogger and we dressed very casually (more like backpacker), but they were warm and accommodating. I even chanced upon two lady executives at the elevator and they were very cordial. Would that be Ilonggo hospitality, I am not sure. But I just know that we were really treated well at Richmonde.

So happy that the wifi connection of the hotel is very fast. I was so happy because I brought my laptop so I could work. Too bad that I ended not being able to work anyway because I was too tired of our Iloilo City tourΒ with the kids in tow. But we really enjoyed the many places that we visited, including an afternoon of water fun at the Waterworld Iloilo.


During our stay in Iloilo, we ate in Iloilo restaurants outside of Richmonde Hotel Iloilo. The only meals we had there would be the breakfast buffets for three mornings. So we had actually seen the changes in the menu every day.

Breakfast Buffet

The breakfast buffet is served at The Granary restaurant on the ground floor. The choices for the breakfast buffet are not that many, but it was adequate. There are enough choices for those who like Filipino style breakfast foods as well as salads and sweets.

They also have yogurt and Yakult. This is the second hotel in Iloilo where I see containers of ready-made yogurt and Yakult as part of the buffet. I really like the idea.

What I didn’t like there was the bacon. The supply was steady but a lot of the slices were tough, like jerky. Oh well, a minor thing.

Water Babies

My kids are mermaids! As in! If you let them, they can stay all day in the pool. So when we stay in a hotel, we always ask if they have a pool and we most certainly bring their swimsuits. They totally enjoyed four days of swimming every day at Richmonde Hotel Iloilo. We gave them enough time to do this before we went on our other itineraries.

Our eldest Dindin. What a lovely view it is to swim here.

Aside from swimming so much at the hotel, we also ventured for an afternoon at the WaterWorld Iloilo. The kids kept swimming there, too. No wonder they were both tan when we came back because of sun exposure. They sure got a lot of Vitamin D here in Iloilo.

We also went to dine at the now world-famous Roberto’s Siopao of Iloilo and we were not disappointed. Fresh siopao is the way to go!

Meanwhile, my sun urticaria acted up despite slathering so much 50+ SPF sunblock on my face and body. Daily exposure to the sun is really bad for my skin. huhuhu I get sun rashes.
