It was the time of fully-booked hotels when we decided to stay overnight in Tagaytay - that's the problem when you plan on short notice. Thankfully, Emiramona was still available for us to book. Emiramona is located close to the Pink Sisters so if you do plan to book your hotel stay, you now know its location. It is a walking distance to Pink Sisters, you can attend mass if you have time to visit.
Emiramona is a simple hotel, you will notice that when you enter the gates and when you also enter the lobby. It also doesn't have an elevator. However, the rooms are spacious and they sometimes even provide a folding bed in case you need a spare one.
They have a covered pool which seems appropriate for Tagaytay since it can get chilly up there in the cooler months. During the time that we were staying, they offered buffet breakfast with a lot of options which I think were a plus when we stayed in the hotel.
They also offer spa but it's outsourced so you wait for the masseuse to come over - there's an option if you'd like the massage done in your room or in the spa room. My friend requested it done in their room but I had it done in the spa room. Their spa room might need more spa facilities like the massage bed and the likes. However, the walk from my hotel room to the spa room has shown me another side of Emiramona, and I think they are villas - it would be interesting to spend the night in one of the rooms/villa over there.
All in all, Emiramona is a good hotel to stay at. The rooms are spacious, the staff are courteous and nice. However, you have to be aware that this is not close to the Taal view - so if you're after that, this isn't the hotel for you.
