When I decided to have my "me time" weekend, I booked for this hotel out of what I've read in the internet. There's nothing extra mega super special in this hotel (hello?! We're talking about 3 star hotel here) but I had a great time staying in this hotel. The check in and check out process is really fast. I worked the entire evening before I came to the hotel, traveled for 5 hours to get to Manila and then from Manila to Tagaytay, it took me 3 hours because of the heavy traffic going to and going out from Manila. I was really tired and knackered because I didn't have any sleep for 24 hours that day and couldn't sleep on my way to the place because it was my first time to travel alone and in public transpo, I had to be awake and alert. When arrived in the hotel at 7pm, the staff greeted me right away and politely assisted me with my things. They've noticed my strained face and they went straight in the check in process. After I paid my bills coz I decided to settle it right away, they gave me a quick heads up regarding the hotel facilities and asked me what kind of breakfast I would like on the following day. After that, they brought me directly to my room so I could rest. Mind you guys, the breakfast is very basic, but it is not something you could easily forget. They have the typical Filipino breakfast but they are the only one who made me eat fried eggs again! Since my trip to Singapore mid year last year (Fried eggs are always part of Singaporean dishes that it would make you puke na!), I didn't eat egg anymore. But after tasting their scrambled egg, i just want to come back for more and more. The longganisa is really unforgettable. After a couple of days, I still could taste their longganisa. The staff are very accommodating but not too trying hard to please. Its just a pure genuine customer service. During my last day in the hotel, I went back to the hotel after spending my entire morning in horse back riding, it was raining hard, I just ran towards my hotel room in the back side of the hotel (some rooms are separate from the main hotel), I didn't know the staff saw me when I passed the reception area, one staff came running me without minding that he himself is already soaking wet and just covered me with his umbrella. I find it thoughtful when he could easily pretend that he didn't see me. Needless to say the assistance they gave while I was on my way going to Tagaytay. They've called me many times to ask where I was and gave me directions. It seems that everything they do rooted on what customer's want and need. They would even ask you what time would you like your room to be cleaned etc. Ill definitely go back on this hotel. For the good service and yeah for the longganisa =)
PS. Another advantage of this hotel is the Picnic Groove is just in the front of it. You can jog or horse back if you want to have some exercise in the morning.
Dislike: The old cabinet. I didnt put my clothes inside the cabinet coz it seems too old and dirty.
