We visited this place again after missing it for more than 15 years. And am just disspointed that there has been no improvements in terms of infrastructure and zoning. As a matter of fact, they just created more malls and very very tall condominium units! It is dissapointing that they have not prevented high rises from being built...it is just... More

It was like a big house converted to a hotel---as where the name was derived I believe. It was fancy in the pic but not totally amazed when I saw it with my own eyes. You have to go down some plight of stairs in order to check in. Booked their garden room---it was creepy coz it is the only... More

Beautiful natural landscape, breathtaking view of taal lake, foodie-haven, and closest decent place from the metro to visit if you just want some fresh air.

I super love this place, with just 2 hours away from the metro; this is my sweetest escape from the city turmoil. The cool breeze plus the majestic scenery always blew me away. A perfect place to bond with friends and family either going on a picnic, dine in with the famous bulalo or simply tsismisan over a coffee.

This is a place becoming quite popular in Tagaytay City, Philippines. The chapel holds daily masses and several masses throughout the day on Sundays. The chapel has a very solemn atmosphere, and the angelic voices of the nuns during the mass further enhances the solemnity. The grounds of the convent is quite spacious and evokes the feeling of being close... More

The city is a sprawl with always something interesting around the next corner. There used to be an English pub but it is no longer there.
