Relaxing rooftop

This rooftop swimming pool is probably the most charming spot in the entire Bayview Park Hotel. The rooms are nothing extraordinary, there's only one café, the business center and gym close at 5:00 p.m., and the lobby doesn't even have armchairs so guests could at least sit while waiting their turn at the check-in counter. But Bayview Park does have several things going for it: compared to other hotels along Roxas Boulevard (which runs parallel to Manila Bay), it's very inexpensive (especially when booked through Agoda); it's one of the stops of the colorful hop-on-hop-off jeepneys; and it's right across the U.S. Embassy.

Natural or man-made, take a refreshing dip in Watery Wednesday.

This is such an elegant shot. The hotel should hire you to do the photography for their brochure.

The pool looks nice whatsoever the situation of the hotel. I'm sure it's refreshing on a hot day!

I think I could very easily relax around this swimming pool and not miss armchairs in the lobby at all.

It doesn't look like much rooftop one without seeing sky, but nice and relaxing mood.
