Have just left Balai after a ten day stay. Now I feel refreshed and ready to get back into work in the UK. The staff were as friendly and efficient as ever and the food was great. I have now stayed here many times and I am never disappointed. Plus every year I visit there are more improvements, the restaurant... More

We checked in as a group of couples at Club Balai Isabel on April 5-6, 2014. The service staff including the security guards were all polite and even though there were many guests vying for attention to check in at the front office, the reception staff performed exceptionally well to accommodate all of us without resulting to chaos. The place... More

We were here on March 7, 2014. Our room was located lakefront with a full view of the volcano. In our room, a long stemmed rose was on the pillow. There was a sliding door going to our balcony which was elegantly decorated. On the table at the balcony was another long stemmed rose. It was a setting that one... More

I went here last January of 2014 with my boyfriend and his family. The place was definitely good and the ambience of the resort is very relaxing but I noticed that their swimming pools were not regularly cleaned and the lakeside (Taal Lake) was sort of filthy. However, you can do a lot of activities in Balai Isabel (biking, billiards,... More

We were here March 1,2014, a weekend. Coming from Paranaque, it was a fast, pleasant, scenic 1.5 hour trip if you're going to use the SLEX and STAR tollways going to this hotel. Arriving at Club Balai Isabel, checking-in was a breeze, parking is NOT A PROBLEM ...thanks to the spacious availability of the entire 10 hectare property. Our hotel... More

I was at this resort over the weekend for a strategic planning session. We were a group of about 15 people. Before going there, I read the reviews and it was quite confusing so I wasnt expecting much. However, when we got there I found it to be a very pleasant place. We were booked at Casa Malvar which is... More

The good: - 2.5hr drive from QC (including 1hr lunch stop). The drive from SLEX to Star Toll made the trip fast and pleasant. - A different view of Taal lake and volcano from the usual Tagaytay view. - Big area to roam around with lots of things to do like biking, foosball, spa, basketball, and swimming (they have 3...

This is actually a beautiful 10 hectare residential resort-club with several clusters of hotel buildings and villas to choose from. I tell you when it comes to price, this is no cheap resort nor even close to reasonable. The resort offers a nice view of Taal lake and the serenity of the place makes it ideal for a short retreat...
