It was our family's first time to spend overnight in Tagaytay city and the hotel surely made it all worth the while. Magical view of the volcano, picture perfect cloud formations and a Birdseye of the nearby provinces are just few of the things that will take your breath away. It made us feel like we've stayed for a three day relaxation.

We stayed at the new building of the hotel so we were able to enjoy world-class accommodation at the new rooms. Although the hotel has a hideous lift, it's compact three-storey structure made it manageable.

We'll definitely go back and stay longer next time. :)

There are now questions anymore with the beauty of this hotel. Hotel Vista has been known for its class because it is pricy. But hear me out, for those who want to experience 5 star accommodation and dining - make sure you have your BDO Credit Card and/or SM Advantage Card. This is because they offer their deluxe rooms which are would be enough for 2 in very affordable price of 3800.00 PHP only during off peak season and regular weekends (just m ake sure to call their office in Manila first). Rooms are really big with the view of the Taal lake - it's really beauty from the top.
Buffet breakfast was really good and plus it is already included in 3800.00 PHP. I really recomment travelers and leisure hunters out there to avail this promo. It is all worth it. Besides, Tagaytay is most enjoyed when it is not peak season so you can really enjoy the nice weather, nice dining and the calm feeling it could bring.

Stayed at the Taal Vista hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was about 2 - 2 1/2 hours from Manila, timings depend on the traffic conditions. It is located just off the highway, and comprises two wings - the newer wing, somewhat distant from the main building and the older wing, nearer the pool, spa and gym.
The main attraction of the hotel (a renovated building displaying some traces of it's 1960's heritage) is the view - simply a panoramic vista of the Taal lake. The restaurant (and it's attached outdoor seating area) shares this view.
The newer wing definately has rooms with a breathtaking view. I can't comment on the older wing, as I didn't stay there. The older wing has proximity to the (rather small and basic) gym, and the (small and limited) pool. Rooms in the new wing were comfortable, if non-descript. There was a balcony with supplied chairs and table, free internet, coffee and tea making facilities and an electronic safe. Cable television on a LCD screen was also available, with an excellent array of local and international channels. The rooms suffered a bit from noise - you could certainly hear the plumbing noises from adjoining rooms. Rooms were a bit dark - with limited lighting for bedside readers!
Food choice in the restaurant was limited - there is only one main restaurant area. Morning buffets were uninspiring but perfectly adequate. Service was generally warm and friendly. The spa was tucked away in the old wing - unpromising entrance, but relatively pleasant rooms once inside.

Likes: The view! Service.
Dislikes: Functional rooms with relatively poor soundproofing. Uninspiring food.

Stayed for a weekend in May at this hotel and was nicely impressed with the renovation. The staff was very friendly and helpful and also very quick to respond to requests (e.g. bucket of ice, golf cart to take my disabled mom to the main lobby). They also had Sunday mass at the hotel which made it so convenient. The breakfast buffet was really good although they should make sure the line goes fairly quickly and no one jumps the line.

I would stay again here and will not hesitate to recommend this place.

Taal Vista Lodge was one of those places you pass by to see Taal Volcano, a stop-over before heading home and take snapshots of you and your family with the picturesque Taal Volcano behind you.
But when we had an office team building nearby did I see that the hotel was renovated and now “privatized” in a good way. The hotel is now a hotel no longer a mines view feels to it.
We checked in and tried the Superior room, since we were a little early before check-in we expected to wait long, my companions were full from the trip and wanted to get in any room. So we agreed to get any room that is available to earliest. To my amazement 10 minutes after a room is available. We requested an extra bed and they said this was already set. Wow – it was faster than expected.
However, we got a room that is smoking allowed, I thought these rooms were already extinct. But the front desk clerk said we can call up and he will give us a room if the smell was intolerable.
We expected for the worst – since this was a renovated hotel – we expected a small room like the last hotel we stayed on for the summer. We expected an old, smelly, out-of-date hotel room.
I stand corrected; the room was bigger than expected around 20 x 15 as big as a studio type apartment. Bathroom was clean, well lit and spacious, cabinets huge and ample. I am a real heavy packer and I only used 7 of the 15 cabinets and biňns. The design is modern – beds and covers were fresh. TV has several channels.
And the view of the Taal Volcano – priceless.
Food is excellent. We met and talked with Assistant Chef William and met their Head Chef, a previous hed Chef of Malacaňang.
Amenities were good.
A spruced up pool with towels available,
A gym,
A kids place where kids can play,
A ridge café where I can eat my snack and still watch the kids
A spa
Several Function Rooms
For teens a Starbucks is nearby.
Overall a SUPERB hotel to relax.
