Tarlac Accommodations | A Happy Relocation at La Maja Rica Hotel

where to stay in tarlac
Dinner, and the ensuing race at Kart City Tarlac left me wanting for a soft, comfortable bed. It had been a busy day, filled with a historic walking tour and a quick river cruise. We'd been traveling by bus to boot. I couldn't wait to lie down. 

My mind was set that I'd be billeted at Microtel Luisita and I was actually thrilled, for my previous stay there had been a joy. As we left KCT however, I was told that I'd be spending the night in La Maja Rica Hotel. I was honestly too tired to think much of it.

THE PLACE
After completing a tough u-turn, our bus finally delivered us to our hotel. It stood right beside MacArthur highway – Tarlac's main thoroughfare. At night the sign glowed like a beacon. From outside, it looked promising. 

As I went through the entrance, I couldn't help but be awed. My eyes followed the chandeliers dangling like a pair of intricate earrings from the ceiling. The mirrored wall made it even more stunning. I took note of the modern interiors, mainly white with touches of cream and gold. It took me a minute to remember I had to get myself checked in.

I looked around and saw the reception on my left. My preoccupation with the room made me miss my companions swarming, which was great as I got my key quickly.


THE ROOM
La Maja Rica Hotel has a total of 86 rooms, spread out across two wings: the Main Wing and the Premier Tower Wing. 

I stayed at a Premier Tower Double room, sharing it with two editors: Gretchen of North Bound (and Filipina Explorer), and Jam of TravelNow

The room was spacious and had a long desk that Gretch utilized for working. There was also a huge window which is a big deal for me. The toilet also had enough space for our ablutions.

The bed was my favorite. Perhaps it was because I was exhausted, but I did find it absolutely comfortable.

THE AMENITIES 
La Maja Rica has a pool, function rooms, and a terrace bar that affords a panoramic vista of the city. 

I, unfortunately, didn't get to try the pool or even check out the terrace bar as we arrived late and left early.

THE SERVICE
I didn't have adequate encounters with the staff to comment, but I will say that Gretch ordered coffee as the ground floor bar was closing shop and the barista still acommodated her order.
