It was our first time to stay here during the Holy Week and got 2 rooms. In the picture, I thought the place is pretty new but I saw it's getting old already. Here's my take on the resort: Likely ones are - 1. Attentive and courteous staff. They addressed our concerns to their best. 2. Usual breakfast meals but... More

Pura Vida has decent rooms and a nice viewing deck. We arrived during the Pope's national holiday with no reservations; many hotels in Tagaytay were fully booked, but Pura Vida had two rooms available for our family. We had one family member who is handicapped and unable to climb stairs. Luckily the basement level rooms have access to the (rugged)... More

Accommodation is very nice. Reception is very accommodating. Food is alright. It is also located near the highway which is very much accessible if you are just traveling by public vehicles. The room is amazing except that to have a cold water you have to call the front desk and ask for the water tanker to be opened for the... More

Rooms are very clean and the bed was really comfy. It has a nice viewing deck at the 4th floor. Near the main road and a few minutes from Sky Ranch. Staff were accomodating. It was quiet and there's a pool but its too cold to swim in. They have rooms for teambuildings and gatherings. Easy to find but there's... More

The hotel is quite nice. Simple and decent. Only problem is that they don't have complimentary toiletries aside from shampoo and soap. They also don't have free drinking water. Location is somewhat difficult because the nearest convenience store is a 15 minute walk away. Recommended for those who come prepared with everything they need and for team-building/group activities because of... More

We stayed in a villa because we were a big group, 3 families. The rooms were small, only 2-4 people per room. There was an attic at the 3rd flr which is spacious but had no Aircon. It's a good thing the weather was cool when we were there. The room that we got had a jacuzzi which is not... More

Excellent location near the junction going to Tagaytay City Hall, walking distance from Sky Ranch, very near restaurants and places of convenience. Breath-taking view overlooking Taal Lake and Vulcano plus the sunset and green surrounding. Spacious clean room plus comfortable beds and bedding. Service is commendable. Beautifully affordable.

We just walked in to this hotel and instantly got a decent room with a balcony overlooking hotel's swimming pool. Room is clean, spacious and nice bathroom as well. We got the room for around P3,000 + good for 3 adults and 1 kid. This hotel has a balcony on the top floor which will allow you to lounge and... More
