On the downside, upon arrival the gentlemen urged us to take the hotel's tour of the Taal Volcano as he suggested other operators have hidden charges. Upon accepting the hotel's offer, their driver did his level best to get a bonus built in to the pricing structure by going incredibly slow down to and back up the road leading to the jetty - with the benefit of hindsight, I would risk taking one of the many offers from street vendors. The service by the Maitre D in the restaurant was poor at times seeing as though we were the only guests dining. The rooms are OK, though could do with having the balconies cleaned properly including the windows.
On the upside, the hotel has good facilities, pool, gym, restaurant and so forth. The nightitme entertainment was excellent. The three spanish sounding guitarists in the restaurant were very good, as were the pianist & singer, and flute player in the lobby. My wife & I found this very entertaining, and a delight to sit by with a cocktail and enjoy the music.
The view from the rooms is good, though similar all round Tagaytay. The quality and cost of the meals from the restaurant were as expected.
The choices in Tagaytay seem limited. Overall a nice expensive hotel.
