My aunt had reserved us rooms in the executive part of the resort, these were the rooms from the 20s to 40s I believe and we stayed in room number 40 if I do remember correctly, it was the last room before the santorini portion of the resort and it was a second floor room which means that we had...

The good - Million dollar views The average - Breakfast buffet was cold and not worth eating, room service food was very average also. Pool not maintained well. How could this improve? This is managed by someone in Manila who is obviously not onsite. Staff are nice but not well trained. I would've spent so much more money if the... More

The people were nice and accommodating, but the overall grounds and site were average at best. The hot tub was always cold and you had to ask 2 hours in advance to turn it on and it was still cold. Generally a low class operation. The views from the upper rooms is very nice and the area is nice. The... More

We had a workshop at Estancia and the hotel was able to accommodate our big group. It's spread over a large plot of land on the ridge-side, which provides a good view of Taal for most of the rooms. The facilities are a bit old or dated although it looks new from the highway (Mediterranean-inspired main building) but inside it... More

Had a memorable stay during holy week. The price s higher than the usual due to the lent season. We stayed at one of the santorini rooms, #48. For short feedback, the view was just so awesome and very nice! For long review, i will have to enumerate some pluses and minuses. Plus points: santorini rooms were located at the... More

Estancia is a big hotel in terms of land area, it has large open spaces. This probably lead partly to its downside. LOCATION: It is easily accessible, located at the main hi-way along the ridge with good view of the Taal Lake. PARKING/OPEN SPACES: HAs enough parking space for 15 vehicles. Has large and spacious gardens in different levels along... More

The rooms were clean, nice view but the staff were not very professional. The location was ok but so impossible to get around without private car. Front staff could wasn't very helpful in arranging transportation. Wifi connection was spotty. Breakfast was good though.

The hotel lobby is the nicest place in the hotel. The pool is cold as per every hotel we visited. And you need to wait 2hrs to use the hot tub after you make a reservation -- and it is NOT hot. The food was terrible -- a better place is Verbena next door if you want quality food. Or... More

My stay in Tagaytay was ruined by the hotel's arrogant male receptionist who gave the air that he is way above the guest. Rude and utterly without manners. Does not seem to understand that he is in a hospitality business. The rooms are ok. The other staff were really nice. Management was very apologetic about the incident with the rude... More

Stayed in the Santorini lake view villa, it had a spectacular lake view from the balcony, the room was clean and quite spacious. Overall customer service: excellent, shout out to Ryan who helped us multiple times. Checking in is quite challenging, their wifi needs to be accessed thru chrome to get to your itinerary copy and then there is no... More
