Widus Hotel And Casino: My Great Experience

Posted on 6 m read

Pleasant and comfortable plus VERY GOOD food. This is how I describe and  remember my experience when I had my staycation at WIDUS Hotel and Casino (pronounced as “with us”).

Widus hotel and casino gbt89

Located at Clark Freeport Zone Pampanga just 2-3 hours away from Manila, WIDUS Hotel and Casino, is a very accessible place to stay or bond with your friends, family and loved ones.

Back to my story. Upon arrival to WIDUS Hotel and Casino, our group were welcomed warmly by the hotel’s staff, offering us cold towels and welcome drinks for refreshments which are just perfect since it was really hot that afternon.

While checking in, I can’t help looking around the reception area. It’s really SPACIOUS. High ceiling with few sets of furnitures with a view of their Casino area which we were not allowed to take photos of (I believe all casinos have this kind of protocol).

After receiving our room keys, a personalized WIDUS Hotel and Casino bag tag were given to us as part of their welcome treat to their guests.

We were then ushered to our room. I love how WIDUS Hotel and Casino value security because if you will look around the area you will see plenty of CCTV camera. Like other hotels, you cannot just go up using the elevator if you don’t have a room key because you have to tap it on in order to press the floor level button where you are going. Aside from the CCTV Cameras, numerous Fire estinguishers are placed within the hallways just in case of fire.

House Phone is also available on each level just in case you needed something or in case of emergency and if you are outside your room already.

 And now one of my favorite parts of my staycation experience… My room! and as I enter the room, awww… another welcome treat from WIDUS Hotel and Casino. How sweet!

As As I look around the room, I feel at home already. Look at that big bed just for me. There’s also a work desk, LED TV with cable and a very fast wifi connection(the password will be provided upon check-in and you can stay connected ANYWHERE at WIDUS Hotel and Casino).

Will definitely live like a king for a day.

My room has it’s own refrigerator stuffed with different refreshments. Above the refrigerator is a drawer stocked with coffee and snacks. Reminder: drinking and eating one of these will be charged to your account. Don’t worry, just in case that you get thirsty, WIDUS Hotel and Casino provided 2 complimentary mineral water.

My room has it’s own bathroom. A different kind of bathroom hehehe. Actually it is my first time to see this kind of set up where you can actually see what’s and who’s inside because of the glass wall. Well, it also has blinds so it is your choice to lay it down or up. The funny thing here is you can actually watch from the LED tv in the room while sitting comfortably in the toilet bowl while… you know hahahah!Widus hotel and casino gbt78

I love their shower head!  It’s like you are taking a bath under the rain.

Outdoor Pool. This outdoor pool is one of the beautiful amenities that WIDUS Hotel offers, where you can swim and relax with your friends and family. Too bad I wasn’t able to swim because I’m kinda dead tired and just decided to stay in my room.

Your vacation is not complete if there’s no food. Well, food is really a part of travelling and you can find good food at WIDUS Hotel and Casino’s SALT Restaurant.
