We booked an overnight stay at the Narra suite. The room was very spacious with a huge, comfortable bed. Our stay came with a complimentary bottle of wine and unlimited cheese platter, cookies and warm milk before bedtime and any choice from the breakfast menu in the morning. There was so much food we barely finished half of what was served. A book case by the stairs is filled with books and DVDs that can be borrowed without any fuss. The room has a flatscreen tv and DVD player, a daybed and desk. Wifi was working. Service was good because our stay was hassle and stress free. We definitely recommend this to couples who want to spend quiet time together away from the city.

We had the pleasure of staying at Discovery Country suite after we were able to buy an overnight stay at a discounted price during the Travel expo. We have heard great things about the Discovery Country Suite but nothing compares to actually experiencing it. It has all the trimmings of a luxury hotel with a rustic ambience with a fireplace, lots of plants, and a wonderful view of Taal volcano. The service is excellent: with welcome fruits and drinks and even a night capper of very delicious milk and cookies. The cheese and wine selections for the cocktail are a wonderful delight. Especially good are the blue cheese and the cheese with pepper and the one with paprika. We almost forgot about the complimentary wine and cheese cocktail, which was slated from 5 to 6 p.m., but the management graciously extended the time to enable our family to experience the tasteful delight.

Dipping in the jacuzzi with a view of Taal volcano was very relaxing indeed.

The breakfast menu is a great way to start the day with generous servings and excellent food. We had extra guests and what a surprise, it was a Wednesday and the restaurant served food for walk-ins at 50% off.

Our only regret was our overnight stay had to end. We were actually trying to request for a late check-out. But what would you expect in such a delightful hotel: incoming guests have already booked all the rooms available.

It was truly a pleasurable stay and chances are, we will be back.

Room Tip: choose a room facing Taal lake. My brother-in-law once stayed in a room facing the road and he said...

Spent a weekend here with my husband and two kids. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay despite the steep price and may consider it as one of the places to return to the next time we spend the night at Tagaytay.

Good points:(1) Small and private. Anyone loves serenity and tranquility after a hectic week in the city. (2) Spacious and inviting room. We got The Nantucket room which was tidy, bright, homey and very comfortable. We had some guests over for a few hours and they loved the place as they had enough space to hang out, chill and relax on the fluffy sofas. The beds were huge and the linen crisp and soft. Best of all, the room had a breathtaking view of the Taal Volcano and Taal Lake through a well-appointed veranda. If your hotel room looked like this, you will consider staying in the whole day! (3) Personalized service. Because of the size of the inn, the staff knew us by name and didn't mind us having some guests over for a few hours. (4)Breakfast was free for our 2 kids.

Improvement areas: (1) I specifically mentioned to the front desk person upon check in that it was my birthday but they offered nothing special during our entire stay, not even a small slice of a birthday cake. Not that this is a requirement but doing something special, no matter how small, is an added value that can delight your customers and encourage them to truly return. (2) Food during breakfast was not as good as expected. Considering the very expensive lodging price, you'd expect them to offer a full buffet breakfast. Instead, they make you select one entree per person from the breakfast menu. That could have been okay if the entrees turned out great (quality over quantity) but unfortunately, the portions were small and the taste of the food was either off or so-so. Moreso, the eat-all-you-can selection of fruits and bread was very limited.

Bottomline, this place is something that's worth trying...and worth returning to...But I hope the Management can do something about the improvement areas if they intend to maintain the premium pricing, or it will quickly lose to other similarly classy but more value-for-money accomodations.

Room Tip: Get the rooms with a veranda for an unbeatable view of the Taal Lake and Taal Volcano.

We have been trying to book a room for quite some time now but had difficulty due to the schedule and what seems to be a fully booked hotel every time we checked. It has been highly recommended by friends who have stayed there. The wait was worth it as we had a great stay at the hotel. The food was really good (we also have previously had lunch there some time ago) and the service excellent. The wife loved the homey touch of the warm milk and cookies delivered at our room in the evening. We're definitely coming back soon (if we can get a room, that is).

Dear D0ctrine,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us at Tripadvisor.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Admittedly, weekends are always booked days ahead that is why some prefer a week day visit. The place is quite tranquil and beautifully serene on weekdays which makes it ideal for those seeking a respite from the daily grind.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

We had a chance to try out this B&B through a local deal wherein we paid for the night stay 30% off the normal price.

Stayed there on a Sunday so the place was much more quiet. The place wasn't fully occupied and there were only a handful of guests so it was private and quiet.

Upon checking in, we went straight to the room and a few minutes after, someone came to give us our welcome drinks.

We stayed at the Ceylon room which is located outside. We really liked it since it was a stone's away from the jacuzzi and we were secluded from the main house. Bed was soft, there was a sofa bed which can sleep another person. I was expecting a bigger toilet since it was pretty small but the shower room did suffice. There was a plasma TV, ref and mini bar, fruits and closet. There was also a table and chairs outside the room wherein you could hangout and smoke.

We had wine and cheese buffet from 5pm-6pm. There was plenty of wine and there was about 8 cheese varieties, white and red wine and pickles. We had dinner at Verbena after and they offered 20% discount for people who are currently staying in the hotel. Dinner was pricey but delicious.

We also tried the jacuzzi after dinner and it was just the right temperature. Since the place wasn't fully occupied, we had the whole downstairs area to our own so it felt very private.

Breakfast was also part of the deal and you get to choose from Verbena's breakfast menu which was full of delicious treats. My boyfriend asked for Eggs Benedict which wasn't on the menu but the chef complied to make it anyway! Whereelse could you find a place that would serve something not in the menu but still make it wonderfully?

This time, however, there is a construction going on beside the property and it's a bit noisy in the morning. If you turn on the TV, noise would get drowned out. It will just hinder your sleep if you are a sensitive sleeper like me.

Overall, it was a great stay. I'd say it was a value from the deal we got. The personal touch from the service was something that would really make me come back, If I were to pay the normal price, however, I'd have to think it was a bit expensive. But I guess, the privacy you get would compensate the value.

Dear Kahelluna,

Thank you for your wonderful post. We appreciate the time it took for you to write about your experience at Discovery Country Suites. Please be assured that the issue about the construction noise from the property next door is already being addressed. The contractors are now being compelled to work only within a specific time period every day. Before and after this time period, they are not allowed to create noise in consideration of the peace and quiet of the immediate environment.

He hope to welcome you back in Discovery Country Suites soon!

Sincerely,

Jonahs.

Last stayed here 3 years back to celebrate the birthday of my spouse. It was a memorable one and this time we went back with my daughter , for we want her to experience the little extras that this boutique hotel offer. Got to stay at Oxford ( last time out we had Nantucket ), and i find it really spacious with a homey ambiance to it. I also liked the very huge toilet/bathroom , offering a nice bath tub . One problem though , i cannot open the window blinds to appreciate the view, since there was an ongoing Starbucks construction beside it , even if the suite was situated at the highest vantage point, it can get uncomfortable for one taking a bath or shower.The fireplace in the suite was a nice touch, and you can just ask someone to set it up.. The meaningful extras that Discovery offers include 1) welcome drinks 2) the wine and cheese , cocktail style during late afternoon to early evening 3) free cookies in the lobby/front desk and my daughters favorite , 4) the milk and cookies delivered to our suite at night and 5) things that they do once they know that there is a special celebration going on , such as birthdays and anniversary . I like my breakfast experience at the multi awarded cafe Verbena, in which you also have the option to have it served in the luxury of your own suite . Servings are ala carte, and there is a mini buffet of breads/pastries , juices and fruits . I also had dinner at their coffeeshop and will be posting my separate review soon . I would like to offer my constructive observation regarding my stay . which are 1) how come the internet is too slow, and really erratic ? , in fact it is only good for opening e-mails at the most 2) how come the lights are out at the lobby and coffeeshop by 12mn ? , what i mean is that it is really turned OFF, making one think that for the pricey accomodations to be paid that is what we get. But for all its entirety , it is a good place for a remarkable stay , i won't hesitate coming back whether with as a family break or as a romantic escape. Special thanks to Mark and the security group on duty that evening , and also to Morris and the pretty lady he's on duty with . The morning cafe staff on duty the following day were good but I didn't have enough time to recognize them more. With plans to renovate the place , i hope they consider changing the location of the men's restroom , since it can be quite uncomfortable for those visiting and dining at their renowned restaurant .

Room Tip: splurge on nantucket and oxford suites for they provide partial Taal volcano views

Decided to bring a group of 26 foreign and local officemates to Discovery Country Suites last minute. Called them at 8am to reconfirm my earlier reservation and the F&B staff offered to help me with the menu. He knows the dishes well and his recommendations were superb. I have the tendency to order too much food for the fear of starving my guests and I initially thought the menu we had was not enough. At the end of the day, it was just right.

My foreign guests were very pleased with the quality and amount of food served to them. Local guests also appreciated the difference between the food we had days before to what they had at lunch.

The staff were very accommodating and warm. I feel there was a shortage of staff but I don't really think the place gets filled up very often so there might not be a need to have more staff than what was already there.
