While I love big family trips, I also enjoy it when someone else plans activities, meals, and entertainment for me. So, after the fun and crazy reunion trip with my ever-growing family, Cyd and I just wanted to spend some quality time together.

On our return to Clark, Pampanga, I decided it was time to stop the frantic internet searches for tours with three or so daily activities or busy itineraries. I was looking for a place where everything is conveniently located near Clark Airport (for our return to Cebu), budget-friendly, and beautifully and thoughtfully designed.

Introducing The Mansion in Clark, Pampanga!

Located just a 15-minute drive from Clark International Airport, this 4-star boutique hotel is a paradise for families. They’ve got everything from big pools, lawn chess, and a camp area with a big screen to dedicated kids’ play areas and entertainment rooms.

It feels like they know that the real VIPs are the little ones. That’s why they’ve created a resort experience to keep them smiling from sunrise to sunset, while parents can finally relax. Every detail feels like it’s been designed with kids in mind – because, well, it has!

Bye-Bye Activity Blues, Hello Playtime Bliss!

First, can we talk about the epic playground? My little adventurer spent hours climbing, sliding, and burning off energy. Once I became a mom, my criteria for staying at places included an outdoor play area or an indoor playhouse for Cyd to get active. The Mansion has one; if you book the place on a weekday, it will not be crowded.

Rainy days? No problem! The Mansion has an indoor playroom packed with activities to keep little ones entertained. Shelves are filled with well-chosen toys. There are also colorful maps with roads that let car-obsessed kiddos zoom around on imaginary adventures. There’s even a mini house to explore, complete with dolls and all the fixings for imaginative play. It’s a sensory feast for little minds and a lifesaver for moms on rainy days (because toddlers, am I right?).

Winning the “Hangry Monster” Battle

Keeping tiny humans fueled is a constant battle, but The Mansion has us covered with their two in-house restaurants: Sunset Grille and the Lobby Cafe. Their children’s menu is a lifesaver, packed with all the classics (sandwiches, french fries, etc.) that won’t have you begging your little one to “please take one bite!” After a day of exploration, yummy mocktails and milkshakes are the perfect way to cool down our happy (and sweaty) faces.

But Wait, There’s More (For Us Moms!)

Just because The Mansion caters to the little ones doesn’t mean they forget about us grown-ups. Hallelujah! Imagine this: relaxing by one of the calming main building pools with a good book while your toddler explores the play zone. Or a luxurious spa treatment (reservations needed) while they’re having a movie marathon. The Mansion makes it possible, mamas!

Family Fun for Everyone

Need a break from the pool? The Mansion offers tons of other activities to keep everyone entertained. Do you feel like getting active? Challenge your partner to a tennis match on one of their two lighted hard courts. The kids will love burning off steam on the jogging path, or exploring the vast green space surrounding the hotel. Older kids (or sporty mamas!) might even enjoy practicing their swing at the baseball fields (reservations required).

Family Fun Without the Fuss

The best part? The Mansion has everything conveniently located. No more endless walks with a whiny toddler in tow! Our room (a Deluxe Family Room, by the way – spacious and perfect for families) is on the first floor so it’s easy to pop back and forth from the pool area. Rates start at ₱6,450.00 per night, a steal for the peace of mind (and relaxation) you get!

Relaxation and Rejuvenation

The fun doesn’t stop there! After a long day of playing with your little one, treat yourself to a relaxing massage in the comfort of your room (reservations required!).

Memories Made, Mama Recharged

So when you’re in Clark, Pampanga, ditch the stress and book your stay at The Mansion! It’s the perfect place for little ones to have a blast and for moms to unwind and recharge. Trust me, this mama highly recommends it!
