Offers a good deal with their weekend lunch buffet (only Php 450 with drinks included), although we had to order bulalo soup (a Batangas delicacy) separately. The restaurant was spacious and guests can opt to stay near the poolside where the view of Taal lake is better. Very helpful staff. Quick service too, considering that it was a weekend and... More

Right along the Taal lakeshore is where Club Balai Isabel is. Really great location for a very scenic, exemplary view of the magnificent Taal Volcano. The reception area gives you the impression that the room interiors are nice and very Filipino, and it did not disappoint. Rooms are simple and do not seek attention in terms of design but the...
