Hotels in the southern part of Mindanao are not as grandiose as with Metro Manila’s. As with my observation, they mostly function as event venues like weddings, meetings, conferences, and not for staycation per se.
I went to Gensan last January 2, 2019 (during my 2018 holiday break in South Cotabato), just to relax before I fly back to Manila. And since I’m too lazy to go home that time, I want to experience a staycation in the land of the generals.
While checking online for the available hotels in the area, some of the hotels are still fully-booked. And while I’m on my way to SM Gensan, I suddenly passed by Q Citipark Hotel. That’s basically the time I booked a room as a walk-in guest.
Q Citipark Hotel is one of the newest hotels in Gen. Santos City that boasts of 41 well-appointed guest rooms which are equipped with in-room amenities. It’s just located in the heart of Gensan that is also near the important establishments of the city.
The hotel offers function rooms for your business meetings and events. And the hotel caters to both travelers and business individuals.
If you’ll go hungry, Q Citipark Hotel owns Citi Bistro and Citi Cafe to satisfy your daily cravings.
I booked a deluxe room with a double-sized bed for only Php 2,950 with buffet breakfast. The room includes complete toiletries, cable LED TV, work desk, minibar, fridge, coffee and tea facility, and wi-fi.
They also offer rooms, that can accommodate your families and your friends (which is really a good idea for groups)
My room has a good view of the oval plaza of Gen. Santos City because I personally chose an available corner room. The healthy trees and blue skies, in my perspective, made my stay more relaxed and I just want to gaze on it the whole day.
Every time I book a hotel or dine in a restaurant, I always make it sure that I talk to the operation staff of the establishment. And with Q Citipark Hotel’s team, they were all attentive and accommodating. They answered all my questions and gave an efficient action to my needs during my entire stay in the hotel.
Additionally, the way they talk to other guests and their gestures were pleasing and professional. So, I’ll give this a 4/5.
The property is pretty new. The colors of the interiors are vibrant and squeaky clean while the smell inside the hotel gives that perfect relaxing feeling. The lobby has enough space to welcome everyone else because they have a number of sofas and chairs in the area.
On the other hand, my room is just a bit warm because it’s located in the corner of the building (literally facing the sun). But what I just love about it is the comfortable pillows and bed I had. For the facilities, it’s 3.5/5.
As with my overall stay, I did have a relaxing staycation in Q Citipark Hotel because, first, it’s new. Second, there’s no noise in the location. And third, the hotel’s operation is great!
Just to add up, the hotel is just near the malls and restaurants. I didn’t have a hard time looking for a place to go and restaurant to dine in. Everything was just smooth and in control. I will give this a 4/5.
Q Citipark Hotel is located at J. corner, Roxas E Ave, General Santos City, South Cotabato, Philippines.
