I got a 35% off deal with a groupon site so I was able to stay in this pricey boutique hotel (I really won't pay 10k a night standard rate). I just stayed overnight with hubby.
The service was great. Prompt, courteous, friendly. The staff always asked how else they can help.
We stayed in Ceylon - the smallest room. Pros are the main entrance is separated from the building so complete privacy. Cons: it was a LOT smaller than the other rooms, felt a bit claustrophobic and the bathroom has some rust spots inside the shower area.
There was also a brown outlet plug for things you had to plug but it was the type straight from a hardware store and was just jutting out of the table. The LAN connection inside the room didn't work, even after someone came in to fix it.
These are just petty reasons but I couldn't sleep well. Piped in music was softly playing outside the room the whole night and the comforter was too thick. I should have called to get a thin blanket and for them to shut the music.
WIFI in Verbena the resto was fast. Had the wine and cheese buffet. The wine was strong and okay but was of the P200 variety (I think). For breakfast, you can choose from the menu. There was a bread buffet as well. Oh yeah, there were cookies and warm milk sent to the room at 7 pm.
The bottom floor common room was musty at all times of the day. The jacuzzi was warm but had some dead insects. Didn't try it though bec the air was too chilly.
I wouldn't go back again - even at a % off. The service was great but there are other newer hotels in Tagaytay which I would rather try first.
