“The View of Taal Volcano is as Memorable as Their Impressive Hotel Staff!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Sure you can oooh and ahhhh at the panoramic view but what distinguishes Taal Vista Hotel is their warm, courteous and hospitable staff. It's incomparable - try it! I availed of their services regularly (almost daily) these last four months!

I've been to several hotels around the world and still find TVH staff the most accommodating towards clients' needs. They truly practice the old time-tested Filipino hospitality. They keep track of regular hotel guests' individual preferences --- how you like your food prepared, making sure to skip ingredients that you're allergic to, they pretty much customize your dishes and desserts to please you. Not all hotels are that detailed nor accommodating.

Taal Vista Hotel is a landmark; a wonderful institution! They try hard to achieve 100% customer satisfaction and truly take your comments and suggestions to heart. I've seen changes take place overnight that were recommended just a day ago as soon as they deem it a worthy adjustment. And I am willing to bet that you cannot find general staff/management more warm and courteous, beautiful and charming as theirs.

It starts from the top with Jermaine the Duty Manager to Christian from F&B to the rest of their wonderful staff - Sheryll, Jaymar, Neil, Roll, and Jhon. It's a wonderful reflection of their caring management and it has no doubt trickled down to all their delightful team. It's obvious Taal Vista Hotel has stolen my heart! I will miss them very much --- they've become part of the family since TVH is our choice venue to hang out as well as celebrate special occasions. Thanks for making my four months vacation in Tagaytay special and memorable!

We stay here at least once a year. The new rooms are nice but I would never pay Php8,000 or almost USD180 (we did once & never again) so I'm always on the look out for promos, either through their SM Advantage card promo or via deal sites.

Try to get their room with the veranda that opens to a view of the lake. It's great in the morning. The breakfast buffet is also good. Their spacious garden with the panoramic view of the volcano and lake is unbeatable, so although we've stayed at other boutique hotels in Tagaytay, we still keep coming back here for those reasons.

The restaurant at the lobby is also nice. We stay there and have wine by the fireplace before we turn in at night. Service could be better though as getting the server's attention takes a long while.

Check in was a breeze.
Room had the perfect view.
Size was just right and perfect for two without feeling cramped.
Big bath with a tub.
Complete toiletries & fragrant at that.
Walls though were quite thin as you can hear guests by the corridor.
Breakfast buffet very good though I was looking for more cheese.
Evening entertainment at the lobby was good and offered various music genres.
I will come back, definitely.

My family booked the Special Room Deal with breakfast for 2 persons via their website. We stayed at their Premier Lake room with balcony last March 13-15, 2014. Beautiful view of Taal Volcano/ Lake. Room and bathroom was spacious.

Breakfast was good although a bit expensive. Additional kids' breakfast costs Php428 each (50% discount) at Cafe Veranda. We liked the variety of food and drinks served in their buffet breakfast.

They gave us complimentary parking during our stay. We just had to validate the ticket at the front desk each time we went out. Basement parking is available. FYI: Driver's quarters (Php600 per night) is also available.


Hotel guests have free use of the gym, pool, recreation area (toddler playground, billiards). The pool is quite a walk from our Premier Lake room. There is a lifeguard present. Pool towels are available. Proper swimwear is required. They have 2 pools: kiddie pool (2 feet) and adult pool (4' to 5'7").

There is a Kultura shop inside the hotel which sells nice souvenirs.

Beside the hotel is Sky Ranch (theme park). Kids loved the rides at Sky Ranch. Inside Sky Ranch, there are fastfood restaurants like Leslie's, KFC, Tokyo Tokyo. Other restaurants are located near the hotel (McDonalds, Carlos' Pizza, Gerry's Grill, Rowena's Cafe and Restaurant at Hill Crest Plaza).

Taal Vista is at the center of everything you like about Tagaytay. It's got the popular view of Taal along the ridge, it's near wonderful restaurants, and for convenience, there’s a supermarket nearby with a pharmacy for your personal needs. To top it off, the casino is right across the hotel.

We loved that we can just leave our car and take the jeep to try different restaurants as it can be difficult to park at small cafes, and we all know that is where the great food is at. Sky Ranch is also just next door.

That being said, there are other hotels along the ridge where you can stay at that can offer the same accessibility, with even better rooms and service, but at a much lower price.

My youngest sister selected Taal Vista Hotel as their main lodging for her wedding which was held at Caleruega Church (30 minutes away).

For those of you have gone through a wedding, you can only imagine the stress and the craziness of it all. Knowing that anything can happen, I can only share pleasant and fond memories of this momentous event - and my commendation for this hotel.

We arrived in separate groups all the way from Manila, all our cars full of wedding things (gowns, souvenirs etc.). Check-in was flawless and we got the room exactly as what we reserved (turns out everyone from both sides of the family all had the same pleasant experience). Also, they had a lot of hotel porters so all our things were brought to our room without a hitch. Since we booked the Lake View rooms which are located all the way to the back of the hotel, it was a relief not to have carried any of the heavy stuff needed for the wedding.

My sisters and I booked the 2-bedroom Lake View Suite and wow, it was huge! There was only one bathroom but it was very spacious and if you don't mind sharing the bathroom, you can all fit in and do your own thing with enough room to move around. There was a separate living room area with a TV and two rooms with its own TV set as well - that's three TVs in one suite! One room had a king-sized bed and the other a queen-sized. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets smelled fresh and clean. The cabinets were big enough to fit a week's worth of clothes at least for all 5 of us. Bathrobes and slippers were provided and the amenities found in the bathroom were as complete as you would need to be. I liked this room...very much.

Now, for the purpose why we booked this hotel - they never fell short of being amazing. My sister's room was huge - I don't know what room she stayed at but it must have been the Presidential Suite. It was big enough for her whole make-up team to set base there and for all the entourage to fit inside to get our hair and make-up done. The hotel staffs were quick to respond when we needed something and they made sure to give us space when the mad rush set in on the wedding day. I even had enough time to eat breakfast and their food was just divine.

After the wedding, we all went back to the hotel for the reception. Our family booked two ballrooms for over 200 guests and never did we feel crowded in. The ballroom was elegant and lavishly decorated. We had some VIP guests and everyone had a great time. The food was out of this world delicious. All in all, a dream wedding - as my sister claims it was.

I know I just mainly wrote about the wedding but hey, it was a major event! But it all happened in Taal Vista Hotel - if not for this place, this wouldn't have been a dream come true for my sister. If they can take care of over 200 people, I don't know what this hotel can't manage.

I know it's a month late but to the management of this wonderful and historical Tagaytay landmark: THANK YOU. I can say 100% that I speak entirely on behalf of the two families who joined in this wedding celebration and that's a huge THANK YOU multiplied by hundreds of times!
