Marlene and I are going back to visit family and friends for a month. We will be there Dec 23 - Jan 21. Does anyone have any suggestions for Condotels or Serviced apartments with a monthly rate in the Makati area? We tried to book an apartment at the Gilarmi Condotel, but they couldn't accomodate us for those dates.

Do a search for PrecisionReservations. They are a booking agency and get real good prices. The online request form let s you describe what and where u r looking for. They will email you with options. Payato
