The only thing this place has going for it is that it has commanding views of the famous Taal Volcano...but that's it. It's a bit of the dive. When we pulled up to the main driveway, no one was there to receive guests and no one assisted with bags. In a hotel of this standard, one would expect that service. Front office staff were curt and while not impolite, were dismissive and uncaring. I know it was a late check-in and they must have have a long day...but so did we. The room itself was adequately appointed but a keen eye will see where housekeeping has missed spots. The bed and pillows were a bit too stiff for my liking and got in the way of a good night's sleep. The breakfast buffet was OK...just OK...for locals. Guests with more Western palates might have trouble with it and on that day, the cook manning the egg station was not having a good day. Couldn't do an egg over easy, was burning omelets...poor guy. In the end, I got what I wanted...a place to spend the night and if I had paid half what I did, I don't think I would have minded at all. But at almost 200 dollars a night, I think am allowed to have some expectations,,,none of which were met.
