The rooms aren't that big but they're very clean and the owners are accommodating.
Right on the shore of Taal Lake, San Roque is farther down the road from the junction so the view of volcano island from the resort is better.
Airconditioned rooms - P1500 with breakfast for 2
Nipa Huts with fan - P850
Guest House with 3 airconditioned bedrooms, 2 baths, and kitchen facilities good for up to 12 pax - P4500
The owners are very friendly and helpful, and they have this guesthouse which has 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms which we rented wholly for the 10 of us. When they saw that we were a little cramped, Lita offerred us another room in the adjacent building FOC. You can have them arrange lunch, dinner etc at their little resort, and they even have their own banca boat to take us to the island. All 3 rooms are air-conditioned but only 1 worked well - hope they have rectified that - hot water ok but water pressure a bit low. The guest house cost us Peso 6000 per night and we had all the privacy we wanted.
The best thing about this place is that it is right on the waters edge. The sunrise and sunset is nice with the waters and Taal in front of you. They have a open aired but covered hall which you can use FOC and we used it for our dancing and dining. Just too bad that it is not as cool as in the Tagaytay city itself as this is located in Talisay.
I highly recommend Viewpoint Inn for budget travellers because it also offers a cheap rate for the rooms, but still offer the basic amenities like hot and cold water, clean toilet, tv, mini-closet, mini-ref. Although there's no good view of the lake from the rooms, but outside, the Viewpoint has a viewdeck of some sort with a very good view, and there are tables and chairs for you to use while eating breakfast or snacks, or just bumming around.
It is also accessible to commuters, the Crow/Crown Bus can drop you off at Viewpoint Inn. From there, it's only one jeepney ride going to the restaurants.
Unlike other hotels/inns that restrict you from bringing food inside, Viewpoint allows you to bring your own food and drinks without the corkage fee.
Other hotels/inns have check-in and check-out times. Viewpoint Inn dosen't. Your check-in time starts from the time you want to check-in and vice-versa. You can also leave your stuff there and pay half the room fee, and then come back later. The time you get back to the Viewpoint Inn is your check-in time.
Non-aiconditioned rooms are 800 pesos/12 hrs and 1200 pesos/24 hrs. Air-conditioned rooms are 1800 pesos/24 hrs. They offer free breakfast for a 24 hr stay or if you dont want to avail of the free breakfast, it's 10% off on your room rate.
We visited Chateau Royale Sports and Country Club Inc. last August 2012. I bout the voucher from a deal site that cost 2499 for 4 persons accommodation on the log cabin with free breakfast and dinner. I read so many bad reviews about the deal and about the rooms.
So we lowered our expectation since I already paid for it. I bought 2 vouchers.
I expected to be checked-in at one of their log cabin quite far from the clubhouse as what was indicated in the previous reviews. But when we arrived at the club, we were brought to their detached log cabin house and somewhat nearer compare to the other apartment types rooms.
The room was cozy since it is woody room but you can still smell the molds smell on the linens. It seems that the linens/pillows/blanket were not ironed or what stocked in the stock room for months. Since I have 3 kids ( aged 1, 2, 3) in the same room with my husband and 2 sisters. The room was still big enough. They have big CR and hot shower and a toilet bowl that has a good flush. Unlike those other review I read that encountered problems on hot shower and flush.
The cabin has a room with one single sized double deck bed and 2 single bed (big enough for 2 person a kid and adult to sleep in one bed) outside the room. You have a space for the couch that seems old and smells mold again. a TV, aircon and cabinet.
Though since we expected not so much, we were happy then. But the aircon is not functioning well. It was fine since the weather is cold.
Unfortunately you have to ask the girl nearby (room attendant) for Tissue.
They have towels though (not mold smelling :))
The pool is clean also but too cold. haha.. my kid again was not happy to swim.
But we did swim.. (Adults only).
There is a jeepney that fetch guests from the cabins to clubhouse. Thanks for that.
You can also park inside the club if you bring a car.
The biggest disappointment came during dinner. You only have to be served 1 cup of rice and small serving of one dish and small glass of ice tea. Though you can drink lots of water. :(. If you need extra rice you have to pay 20 pesos. There is a mongolian bar that they sell though..
The next day, we were served one cup of rice, 1 egg and skinless sausage (2 pcs i think)
The good thing on their part was since it was raining the next morning, they instead delivered the breakfast in the rooms pack in styro with paying the styro.
The place is fine. But I dont think I will stay there for 2 days. Because a day tour is good enough.
The place is too far from Tagaytay city. You have to travel 1 hr (with heavy traffic) going to main part of Tagaytay.
They really have to improve their facilities. seems old. and add more attraction. Maybe by that time things will get better.
We arrived without reservations and walked into several different inns and resorts. All seemed to be very pushy and trying to take advantage or the white faces.
4C's was reasonably priced and most comfortable of all we stopped into. They offered two types of rooms, one with A/C and hot water. The other rooms were more simple, with only a fan and shared bathroom. Payment is by cash only.
The resort is on lake front, with easy access to banca boats to/from Taal.
There is a pool to cool off in since most will not swim in the lake.
The restaurant provides large portions for very reasonable prices. They even re-heated our left over dinner for breakfast at no charge.
I highly recommend this place for those who want to stay overnight in tagaytay on a budget but still want basic amenities from a hotel.
The staff here is accommodating, and even guided us how to get there via public transport.
The hotel may be small, but the rooms are carpeted (minus the musty odor) and so cozy. The bed matress is firm and queen -sized (good for two or maybe even three persons). Pillows are fluffy and the blanket and bedsheets crisp and clean. There's a small table with two cushioned chairs. There's also ample lighting. Rooms have a private bath with hot and cold water. Bathroom all in all is clean and odor-free(that's the best part for me). There's a mini-walk in closet too, with shelves and hangers. Curtains are kinda heavy but not dusty, so no allergies for you.
What I really love about this place is that I was able to pack light. Beacuse they provide bath towels for two, 2 pairs of rubber slippers and a toiletries kit. The toiletries kit includes 2 toothbrushes, a sachet each of toothpaste and shampoo and a small bar of soap.
Although the rooms don't provide a view of the Taal volcano, at least the place is generally clean and quiet because it's not situated along the major highway, and it's just a stone's throw away from the long line of restaurants and cafes.
They also have rooms that can accommodate couples, families or a small group of friends.
First of all, I didn't stay at Mahogany Hotel. Not yet. Or not anymore. I went here to inquire while waiting for my car's registration from the nearby LTO office and after seeing its reception and knowing its rates -- hell, I won't stay there. Double fan rooms go for P1300-P1500 and aircon rooms for P1700. Though the hotel's facade looks good, its reception is uninviting, dark and lonely-looking. And would you believe, there's no hot shower in all rooms! Disgusting for a cool place like Tagaytay!
We booked a single airconditioned room & stayed overnight. Room rates are affordable and has free breakfast for 2. The room is spacious & clean. It has a comfortable double bed, an available cabinet, cable tv and a water heater; however we can't find any switch or button to lessen the heat. Free wifi access, although not available from every room, is provided in the area around the swimming pool and the reception.
The swimming pool is available for use by guests 24/7 and has a nearby cr and shower room. The good thing about this place is that it’s very accessible to all places of interest in Tagaytay. Overall it was great in terms of the whole environment.
Amora Tagaytay offers swimming pool, wifi access, videoke, cable tv and a 24hr room service. The hotel's garden and swimming pool area is clean and definitely a perfect place to relax. The staff are friendly and accomodating.
Two of my friends and I stayed at a retreat house owned by nuns in Tagaytay (near Rotonda) for 2k a night. The accommodation had two rooms, a toilet and bath, kitchen, and a veranda where you get to see a great view of Taal Lake. If you wish to stay there, you have to book early. There's another room for 1k a night but without kitchen.
Check out their website here.
If you want a bit European accomo, there's Chateau Hestia in Silang, Cavite, which is a couple of minutes drive from Tagaytay public market. Hope I helped.
- peaceful and quiet, the veranda is big and spacious
- surrounded by trees, really great view of Taal Lake
IF you're going to Tagaytay City, in the Philippines,you might consider staying at Evercrest Golf Club Resort- it is between Tagaytay and Batangas so you are close to both lake, Taal Volcano views, beaches, shopping,restaurants,etc..
My family and I stayed there last Dec05 and it was great- especially the food prices in the restaurant are unbelievable!,Plus, no extra room service charge! Imagine pancakes and eggs for 55 pesos , that's less than 2 Aussie or US dollars! They have a varied menu with international and Filipino dishes.
The general ambience? If peace and quiet is what you like, no crowds, then this is it! Friendly, warm and efficient, that's how I can sum up their service.
Don't be put off if it is a golfing resort. The guests are usually at the golf courses anyway!
Hire a private car/van if you are with family members/kids as it is better. The rate is not too high, around 1,500 pesos a day. Negotiate if you want to include the driver too.
Here's the website:http://www.travelph.com/resorts/tagaytay/evercrest/
There's olympic sized pool, jacuzzis, etc, plus the fab golf course whether you are a golfer or not.
How to get there via public or private car/van:
The area could be reached from Metro Manila via the Coastal Road or the South Superhighway. BLTB buses from Pasay, Metro Manila having a destination signboard of Nasugbu or Balayan ply the route passing Tagaytay City. If going through the South Superhighway, take the Carmona exit and drive down through Silang up to the entrance of Tagaytay City.
Travel time : 1 1/2 to 2 hours' drive from Manila.
Btw, the best time to go there is not during peak season though they were quiet right after Christmas. Weather is relatively cooler too. Instead of going to Baguio City, this is the nearer alternative to a mountain climate that is just easily reached by road from Manila.
Cheers and happy trip!
Great room service and very reasonably priced food menu
Big bath tub- my two kids and I can fit inside!
(By the way, we had a discount there as my sister gets bonus points for being a regular customer.)
I have to reccomend Hotel Dominique, great for all you yuppies. Since there’s really no gimick places around Tagaytay you can have it right here in this hotel. They offer rooms with videoke machines for all of you who want to belt it out or you can also try one of those pool tables they’ve got. Room rates range from Php1500-3000 per night.
Videoke rooms//Bar//Pool tables
This place is located along the National Hiway a bit far from the Olivares Circle (or the Tagaytay Rotonda). The original price for a room for two is 1,200 PhP, but since we were there during the town fiesta (Feb 14), the inn owner gave us a discount, we had free lunch & we paid only 800 PhP for an overnight stay!
For those who are just want a place to stay or sleep, this place is right on the budget. However, our bath has no hot water (bbbrrrrrr!!), maybe it depends on the type of room. There are also family rooms on the ground floor, I just do not know how much it costs per night. But it has a kitchen for those who want to cook their own food aside from sampling the bulalo (a specialty of Tagaytay). The place is OK but the inn cannot give you a very good view of the Taal Volcano.
One of the cottages that attracts me is the color. I would say this could have been copied from the carribeans.
So where's the restrictions here? We had a chance to use the pool and we rented the least expensive cottage. Perhaps, you can get away if you use your wit. Just like we did.
Three guys have choosen to pose in the garden while our gal has selected to handle the camera to capture the beauty of Adam.
