On a good day, it will take you about an hour from Alabang to the resort via SLEX and STAR tollway exit Tanauan, The Tagaytay route may be more scenic, but also much longer due to traffic. Check in time is at 2PM but you can hangout the restaurant, swim, play in the small playground or rent a bike and... More

The resort does give the feel of a small village/gated community. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Check-in time is 2 p.m. We got there a little before 1 and when we checked in, I politely explained to the front desk lady that we had a 2 p.m. tour of the Taal Volcano and asked if it was possible to...

My husband and I decided for a late summer vacation last June on Club Balai. On the road, he already anticipated that we are going to lose our way because I’m not good at giving directions.

Stayed here year 2012 during our company team building. The function rooms are okay and spacious enough for bigger activities. I actually like the whole place it's like you're inside a private village with houses, trees, parks, a basketball court, swimming pools, restos, etc. We are a group of 8 who stayed in the same room and it was a...

Finding accommodation for families in Talisay/Tagaytay was difficult. I thought I was onto a winner when I found Club Balai Isabel but there were difficulties and issues all along the way.
