  • This is by far the best arena for games. Comfortable seating, easy to access. Love the huge scoreboard that includes all the important stats on the game. Only sad part was that Ateneo women lost...  more »
  • A bright spot in a very poor city in many parts beware first time travelers that Manila lags a long way behind say Bangkok in many areas  more »
  • On this occasion, it was really my first time visiting this Arena. I was quite surprised at how well constructed it is. I've been around Mall of Asia several times but had never ventured into the Arena before. I happened to get tickets to go and watch Disney on Ice and they couldn't have picked a better place to host it! The Arena is sufficiently equipped to stage spectacular events such as these. The acoustics is brilliant; the view is amazing; the seating is quite modern and comfortable; the building itself is air-conditioned very well. The stage equipment is designed to help in providing the best performances. You are guaranteed to be hosted in comfort. Facilities like shops and toilets are conveniently located on every level within the Arena. The only thumbs down I experienced was after the show during exiting the arena; it was really crowded but they did not have a lot of exits open for people. Maybe security staff was tight on the day, but still, they could do a better job at it if they don't already do so regularly. Overall, I had a wonderful experience visiting this place.
  • It's my first time to actually go here and I must say that it's really good. Very accessible area, cars, taxis and even Grab cars can easily drive by the area to pick or drop you off. The inside is nice and big, it's good that you can really feel the air conditioning in the Arena so you won't get sweaty or hot an be uncomfortable, the seats are comfy and just the right height, and there are also places to buy food and drinks whenever there's and event I guess, you can buy and take it inside the arena. So all in all it's a great experience to visit and watch something here. SM did a great job on this Arena.
