“Excellent Rooms and Views”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

Good
Very comfortable bed. Great Bathroom. Clean and plush.
Views from the hotel towards the Taal volcano are very scenic.
Food in the restaurant is very good.
Overall a very good property, well maintained and comfortable.

Bad
Service is not very good for a foreigner as the staff is not very fluent in English.
Music during Lunch and Dinner is terrible. Lunch as the cultural show of dance which totally mismatches with a lunch experience. With loud sudden bangs and aggressive tribal dance, once can't have a meal. In the dinner, the singer and the sound is very loud. Once can't have a conversation going if one is sitting in the bar area due to the loud music.

I was here for a company event and so did not pay for it. I am not sure how much the rooms cost but they were really good.

Our rooms were booked via Agoda.com. Be very cautious when booking rooms. We thought we had booked, ”Lake View Rooms”. Instead we had “Lake Wing.” Pretty confusing. When we arrived to our room we had a view of nothing. Just a walled courtyard. I was able to upgrade to a LAKE VIEW room and pay the difference. For booking a lake view look for, “Premier Lake Wing”.

Our premier lake wing room is very spacious with a gorgeous view of the lake. The grounds are well kept and well landscaped. We only stayed for one night. We had breakfast at the hotel, but since we booked through Agoda.com breakfast was not included in the price. Their breakfast is really good, so it was worth paying for.

We woke to the most beautiful view. Probably the best morning colors I've every seen. No filters on the picture.

Rooms at Taal Vista Hotel looks old, unclean and it was definitelt a disappointment.

We were given a room wherein the view outside our window is construction site.

There were no bath tubs, and aircon seem to be malfunctioning. I was expecting it to better but I was so disatisfied. No Taal view.

Given an opportunity to go back to Tagaytay, I will defintely try another hotel.

My room had a breathless view of half the mountain and the lake. Reception was great no frills and made you comfortable immediately.

New attractions nearby to visit the White Ferris Wheel beside the hotel and the Bag of Beans Bakery for the best breads in town!

Room Tip: Try to take the lakeside next time

Nice hotel, nice location.
Buffet lunch and breakfast very good traditional Phillipine food.
Rooms clean and functional , tv very small.
Front staff not very efficient, tried to give a room with single beds when we had booked a double, then made us wait over an hour for the room.

We have been here several times and usually my wife books it by phone. This time I wanted to surprise her and I booked online. What a mistake! Although the website is the Taal Vista all online bookings are handled by a 3rd party who take a deposit. When we arrived we were told that the Lake wing room had no view of the lake. It was the roof of the adjoining building! Because we had booked online the hotel claimed they could do nothing as the 3rd party would not allow such a modification. We reluctantly accepted our room and fell on the bed to sleep. After an hour cigarette smoke entered the room and woke me up. We complained and they moved us to another room overlooking the Ferris wheel construction site. What an eyesore that is!
We then went down to the restaurant to try the Mexican buffet. What a waste of money that was! Very poor tasting food. Undercooked meat at both stations. Very limited options and very poor quality. From a previous visit we had decided against breakfast as that was already poor and so we go to Antonio/s instead. We should have kept to our promise not to eat there unless it is volcano fries and a glass of wine. Saving grace are the people who work at Taal Vista. Orly the Resto manager is great as is Kate on reception. We will still go back there because it is still better than most other places in Tagaytay.

Room Tip: Avoid Lake wing!

Recently stayed here to spend a night after attending a wedding in Tagaytay. The place has improved since I last remembered it over the years. The room is spacious and the facilities seem well kept. Great view of the Taal volcano and lake from the room also. Breakfast was satisfactory. One thing I noticed that can be improved are the bathroom fixtures that would be standard in high end resorts. This is a small thing but could add to the charm since Taal Vista is more on the high-end class in Tagaytay.

Overall, nice stay in the hotel and the staff are all friendly and accommodating.
