Just got back from our three-week vacation in the Philippines. I took my family to Club Balai Isabel and we were very happy and impressed. The resort was very serene and peaceful, perfect for relaxation. The views of the lake and Taal Volcano were amazing. The service was good and the pools were big and clean. The downside for us...

A great place to stay for a vacation or even a weekend. They offer many water sports in their beach but they also have swimming pools. The area is wide and secured that you can peacefully walk around or rent a bike to roam around.

Three rooms booked as a group of 15 students. All three rooms broken into during breakfast stealing 11 iphones, 2 I pads and lots of money. Resort took no responsibility and gave minimal assistance. No security cameras, guards were seen drunk. We believe that rooms were stalked out from the night before. STAY AWAY

Surprisingly pleasant place to stay despite it's relative closeness to the city. Fantastic food. Great main pool. The biggest I've seen so far. Rooms were ok, aircon was a bit on the iffy side, old appliances. But overall a very pleasant stay for me and my family

The place was very nice and very relaxing. The room is big with balcony facing Taal lake. We ordered halo-halo which it took them 30 mins to served. They provided free tram from and to your accommodation if you don't like to walk under the sun. 3 big pools. The only disappointment was when we had our night swimming, so... More

The place is good, very relaxing. The room is big with balcony facing Taal lake. The only disappointment was when we had our night swimming, so many frogs joined us while we were having fun. We were forced to go back to our room and enjoy our gadgets.. Life guard plus the security stayed with us in the pool..
