A night with the lions
If you're fond of animals, and can tolerate the small of these creatures, then book yourself at Residence Inn. Actually, it can be a treat as kids will want to see them first thing in the morning. My daughter thought it was exciting to be awaken by the sound of a lion's roar. REsidence inn happens to have a mini zoo featuring 30 or so animals. It has a pretty good view of the famous Taal Lake.
Specialty of the house are the bulalo (boiled beef thigh) and the Tawilis (small, scaly fish from Taal lake served fried or steamed). There's a kiddie show (usually a magic/clown show) almost every weekend.
