Entrance fee is P50/head and P35 for parking fee. The view is good at the view deck. The place offers different activities like zipline, cable car, and boat ride to taal volcano. Souvenirs are way cheaper here compared to Residence Inn. T-shirt ranges from P100-130 depending on sizes. Ref magnets are 3 for P100. It's a great place to stay... More

It was Sunday when we visited the place, so expect many people. The place was fulll packed, so I suggest to go there early. The view of Taal was funtastic but, the place needs additional comfort rooms. The parking area was big but the tables and the cabanas were not sufficient for big crowd. There are plenty of activities like... More

As the title it's just okay. Average. It's a big area to explore. It's a bit nice because of the nature feel and the cool breeze of tagaytay BUT there some trash, a LOT of people and disorganized stores. It can be enjoyable if you overlook the trashiness in the entrance part, walk towards the sitting areas with the umbrella... More

Upon arrival at the park, the first things you see are the payment area and some shops. Entrance is 50 pesos per head and 35 pesos for car parking. There were some men peddling horseback rides and a boat to Taal Lake. It looked quite commercialized and I was disappointed at first. But when we walked along the wooden bridge... More

Picnic grove is a landmark in Tagaytay for it's beautiful location but through the years, park maintenance seem to be lacking with too much litter everywhere.

The view of taal lake was stunning but the picnic tables are dirty and not maintained well. We came around 9AM and it was filthy. We had to clean it up ourselves. The table cost us 300 pesos and entrance fee is 50 pesos per person. There is a zip line for 300 pesos back and forth. It was very... More
