My teammates and I headed to Tagaytay for a breather from work. I was in charge of looking for a place to stay in and right from the start I really wanted a house that can fit all 10 of us. I didn't want a hotel since I want us to have bonding sessions and also for us to be more comfortable of having a place of our own. Pina Colina perfectly fits this requirement.
Reservation was very smooth as I just booked on their website and then I received a call from the staff confirming our reservation. A week before our trip, the reservations officer gave me a call to confirm if we are pushing through with our trip and to ask if there will be additional persons to join and if we have any other requests like bath towels and bed sheets. Very trained staff indeed!
Pina Colina is not along the way. You have to go through a small road and then a bit uphill to get to the place but it no big deal if you have your own vehicle. Upon arriving, the staff welcomed us and ushered us to our log cabin.
Our two-level log cabin has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a living room with a simple sofa, dining area, refrigerator, rice cooker. There's a mini living room upstairs with a television set where we stayed during the night and watch a movie. The bedroom downstairs has two double deck beds which can occupy four persons. There is also a bathroom in that room. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms- one with a double bed and the other with two double beds. There is also a bathroom in between these two bedrooms. The third bathroom can be found near the dining area and kitchen. The log cabin is very spacious and comfortable to live in. We paid 9,200 for an overnight stay. This rate doesn't include the use of AC since it's already cold in Tagaytay. There is an additional charge for the use of AC.
The surroundings is very peaceful. I love the garden as well with lush plants and beautiful flowers. It is very well-maintained.
I truly recommend this place if you're planning a trip to Tagaytay and you're in a group. You'll save more if you stay here instead of a hotel.
