I had the privilege to stay here for a few weeks during the summer, as a mermaid swimming instructor. Following the goal to make the hotel family-friendly, I held mermaid swimming lessons for guests, both for children and adults.  It was a fun recreation activity, where guests fulfill their dreams of becoming a mermaid.  For more about Mermaid Arabelle, please click here. The heated pool of Winford Manila was just the perfect venue for this magical experience.
