“My Getaway Place”
Reviewed August 30, 2011

When I want to escape the city, I go here.

First, I love their rooms. It's huge and has nice theme. They have the comfiest beds I fall asleep easily and I don't want to get out of bed the next day. I also like the bathroom 'cuz it has a huge mirror and hot water.

Second, location. The inn has the best view of Taal Volcano. You go out of your balcony, and voila! it's there. No need to crane your neck. The inn is located along the road and you can either drive (or walk) to the nearby Robinsons grocery or the restaurants lining up at Magallanes Square.

Third, parking. If you bring a car, you'll have no problem.

Fourth, service. The people here are courteous and friendly.

Only a few things to improve on:

Food - it's okay. But it can be better.
Value - it's a bit pricey.
Wi-Fi - I hope guests can have access in the rooms.

But overall, I would recommend this to people who would like to relax and unwind and enjoy the Tagaytay weather.

If you like fluffy beds and a good night's sleep you should stay here :) IMHO they have a better view of the Taal than Taal Vista hotel. The food is respectable (and of course they have Tawilis which is a favorite of mine.)
I only have a few problems with this place (these are the only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars)
1. There is no elevator to get to the lower floors. But then again, I guess that's what gives you privacy :) No one wants to walk up and down 2 flights of stairs. Kinda tough if you're walking with heels.
2. The policy for extra person is just silly. If you pay for an extra person, of course you expect a bed for that person, and an additional towel. YES TOWEL. If a room is advertised for 2 adults, 2 kids, and I add an extra person, I should get 5 towels, with no extra charge. This is too trivial to ruin your reputation for. I know it's a nit, but it's a really irritating one.
3. You are shooed away after midnight from the restaurant even if you buy high end drinks at the bar(whole top shelf bottles), This is not cool, especially if people are having fun.
I hope their management rethinks a few of their policies (I mean, would you really ruin your rep for a towel?).
I still like the place though, and would recommend it to other people.
