Widus Hotel and Casino is a business and leisure destination inside Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga. It has asian inspired hotel room, casino and convention center for social and business events. I must say that the property continues to improve its products and services to cater more clients and provide memorable experience.
As you enter the property, you will be see the grand lobby, its simple yet with a touch of elegance. Checking in will only take few minutes and you are being assisted by their friendly and gorgeous receptionist. The customer service has improved from the last time I visited this place.
The lobby lounge of the 2nd tower has a modern tropical concept evident in the interior. The property has 2 towers, the 2nd tower is the new one, this is where our assigned hotel room.
I stayed in a Executive Double Room, it’s a modern asian inspired room which is perfect for both leisure and business travelers. The beds are soft and comfortable, I had a relaxing sleep. 🙂
The bathroom has the basic amenities that you need to freshen up. It has hot and cold shower, blow dryer and toiletries.
My room has a garden view which is characterized by greenery that is soothing to the eyes. What a great view as you wake up in the morning. 🙂
Considering the business travelers, there is a working table if you have some work to do. They have a high speed Wifi connection which is needed to check your emails or any work that involved using the internet.
Salt Restaurant is offering local and international dishes. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Buffet is available which features different cuisines, since its Independence Month for the Philippines, the menu is all time favorite Filipino dishes. The food is good but can be improved, I like the Lengua and Beef Caldereta in particular.
There is a wide selection of dishes you can choose from appetizers down to desserts. The show kitchen is one of the main features of the restaurant as you can see their energetic chefs in action as they prepare food from scratch.
For the health conscious, they have Salad Bar with fresh vegetables, condiments, cheeses and both classic and interesting salad dressings. Nothing so unusual or something that I like the most for the items in the bar.
There is wide selection of desserts to choose from, but I tend to be picky when it comes to sweets for I tasted some of the best desserts items in the past. For this selection, I like only the Creme Brûlée, it has the right sweetness and creaminess.
We got the chance to try their Cheesecakes also, offering 10 different flavors. My Top 2 favorites are the Matcha Cheesecake and Tiramisu Cheesecake. I don’t like the Lime Cheesecake, it’s so sour that over power the sweetness and a bit of sourness of the cream cheese.
I like the Matcha “Green Tea” Cheesecake for it has the right combination and balance of Green Tea, sourness of the cream cheese and sweetness of the white chocolate. The texture of this cake is just right, a perfect treat to end a course.
The Tiramisu Cheesecake is one of my favorite also, perfect blend of bitterness of the coffee flavor and dark chocolate, sweetness and sourness of the cream cheese, soft bread and saltiness of the crust.
Overall, I had a relaxing stay. The food and service is good, improved from the last time I stayed in the hotel. I’m so delighted with their customer service in particular as they go extra miles to serve the guest better. The food in particular can still be improved from their ala carte menu and buffet.
Widus Hotel and Casino is still one of my top choice in Clark Freeport Zone so far.
