Location: Excellent as it is situated on the main road, but you have to go down a large driveway before reaching the hotel so it isn't noisy at all. The hotel is beside many restaurants and is considerably near tourist hotspots such as Picnic Grove, Tagaytay Highlands, Sonya's Garden.
Hotel: A bit dated, but definitely not dilapidated as some reviews say. Reminiscent of old-fashioned American motels. Lobby and restaurant is very airy and quite pleasant. The pools (2) and the garden area are quite big. They have a souvenir shop.
Room: We were upgraded free of charge from Standard to Superior room, which has two queen beds, a fridge, cable TV, and a balcony. Our online promo from the official Days worldwide website allowed us to have a free extra bed. The room is sufficiently spacious for 5 people and is very clean. The bathroom area is very clean (toilet area is sanitized) and everything works. Sheets do not have stains, and although the carpet is worn in a few places and the bathroom tiles are quite old, the hotel obviously took a lot of effort to make the room feel as clean as possible.
The balcony is very spacious, and our bellhop offered to bring outdoor tables and chairs. Our balcony offered a nice view of the pool area, and also of the Taal volcano (at least, that's what I think it is). We had drinks and chips at the balcony at night, and even roasted marshmallows on a clay pot (we just sneaked it in). It was very pleasant due to the windy climate.
Amenities: Hotel provides shampoo, soap, complimentary water, and basic bathroom amenities.
Food: The complimentary breakfast selection is cute. They have around 7-8 selections ranging from Filipino breakfast (called Juan), to typical American (Joe) and Korean (Kim). The food was not 5-star hotel quality, of course, but tasty and filling enough. They also offer buffet breakfast during some days for an extra PhP250++.
Service: Excellent. Front desk, bellhop, guards, housekeeping, room service, and wait staff were all very courteous, efficient, and generous. They seemed to enjoy giving complimentary stuff (complimentary hot chocolate and extra fruit during breakfast, raffle where I got a free bar of soap, etc). They were very accommodating of us considering that we asked for a lot of towels, bottle openers, newspapers, tissue, and utensils. They must have made 10 trips to our room during our entire stay! We went down for breakfast at 10:40am, and were accommodated even though breakfast was supposed to end at 10:00am.
Overall, I was very pleased with our stay in this hotel. I was expecting the worst because of some reviews but the hotel exceeded my expectations. It's not a 5-star hotel, but it's definitely good value for your money and the hotel staff ensures that your stay will be as pleasant as possible. I'll definitely come back with my friends next time!
