We were looking for somewhere to stay in Tagaytay for overnight accommodations only. It was kind of last minute as I was only able to book Summit Ridge on the day itself. While I was trying to book reservations for the hotel, I called the landline number posted on their website and asked to be transferred to reservations. I was told that there is no one there and asked what I needed. I asked if there were rooms available for the same night and the guy on the other end of the line immediately told me that there were no more available rooms as they were fully booked for the weekend. Not being convinced, I tried calling the mobile number. It took a while to get through the mobile number but after a few tries, I was able to talk to someone and I was told that there were 3 rooms available, which was what I needed. It pays to be persistent, I guess. We could have easily fit in 2 rooms with 3 persons per room but they ran out of extra bed, so we had to take 3 rooms instead. After that, everything was a breeze. We got there and were immediately checked-in and transferred to our rooms. We stayed on the 8th floor, which has an awesome view of the lake and the volcano. Room size is just standard, has king size bed, and a couch, and a balcony that faces the lake. Bathroom is spacious, with standard amenities. There is no minibar, but there is a mini-fridge that is available to use. There is a wall-mounted flat-screen tv that has basic cable channels, but one of the rooms we got has very poor tv reception. Wi-fi connection is complimentary. There is air-conditioning but we did not use it much since the weather is still very cool. Our rooms also come with free massages at their spa but we were not able to avail it. A word of caution though, during the night, we still get to hear the cars passing through the highway. To think that we were already in one of the highest floors and we can still hear the noise from below. It did not bother us much but it might be a problem for light sleepers.
Location of the hotel was very ideal. It is right across Josephine's Restaurant which is where we had our dinner. It is also right beside a Starbucks cafe and Robinsons Supermarket so it is very convenient. There is enough parking at the front of the hotel as well as the basement and there is a guard that roves around the parking area at all times.
Breakfast buffet was just ok. It has standard breakfast food. Some items, they do not refill often enough, like the pancake station. My 4-year old son also tried the pool. It was really cold that morning and the pool is not heated. Also the pool does not get enough sunlight since the hotel building is blocking the sun in the morning.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay and would consider staying there again.
