We wanted to escape the stress caused by the APEC Summit in Manila and looked for a place to relax and just idle. We made a good choice for staying in this resort.
It is a bit secluded; about 3 kms from Taal town proper. It is located at Barrio Tulo near the Diversion Road. We stayed in a Deluxe room on 2nd floor.
Good points:
PLACE: quiet, very clean and organized, lots of greens, lots of corners to just sit and relax, ample parking, POOL: clean, ROOM: clean, spacious, with a small terrace, with dining table, microwave, large refrigerator, FOOD: Tasty taal longanisa breakfast at P150, Free bottomless barako coffee, STAFF: excellent!
(Not really)Bad points:
Not easy to find the place due to lack of signboards. No restaurant but they serve tapa and longanisa meal for bfast. free videoke in the mess hall (but we can not hear the noise inside the room). Free Wifi is available only in he mess hall.
Overall: I highly recommend this place to people who visit Taal.

Room Tip: We stayed in the second floor which has a private balcony that offers great view of the resort and t...

We stayed here in May of 2014 while we were in Taal sightseeing. We only stayed one night and the place was like a ghost town as we were the only guests. The staff welcomed us and allowed us room access without any additional charge.

Our rooms were nice and clean.

We had hoped to swim while we were here, but the water in the pool was cloudy and dirty, as if the pump had not been running for quite some time. There were also mangoes and other crap in the water, which was rather disgusting.

We were provided with breakfast in the morning and it was fine. As I said, the staff here was great.

We spent the bulk of our time here sightseeing in Taal City, and we saw most of the highlights. The Basilica de Saint Martin de Tours is spectacular, and the Spanish colonial architecture of the ancestral homes in town really makes you feel as if you've stepped back in time. We stopped at Villa Tortuga and saw that wonderful old house, even donning period clothing for a photograph. We also visited a few of the other museums in town and the marketplace.

Perhaps the most fun thing we did in town was to go to Our Lady of Casaysay Church. The church itself is something, but we were met by three young children there who began talking almost nonstop about the church, the town and who knows what else. Before we knew it, they had led us up a nearby wooded path to the Miraculous Well of Saint Lucia and a 400-year old arch built over the spring by the Spaniards. Then they led us back toward the church and up the San Lorenzo steps and the shrine at the top. They were wonderful little ambassadors!

One word that i can described this place-PERFECT!!

It's so secluded and quiet.
This place is suited to those who wanted to get away with the work stress and pollution.

The place is sorrounded with greenies and wears beautiful sorroundings.

The pool is so cool and clean
Based on my observation,people are having fun at their stay here.

I'll probably go back at this place/

Okay, so since I am new in TripAdvisor, I will only write this review now, but I stayed here last year with friends. Honestly, I think this is a good resort for people who want to shake off the stress they got from the urban cities. This place is secluded and quiet. They have several pools, 3 adult pools and 1 kiddie pool. But what we enjoyed the most is the big refrigerator they have in their even bigger rooms! Usually in hotels, they only have mini-refs for the minibar. Also, we were allowed to bring in food, as much as we want! We also grilled our food, since they do not have a restaurant. The staff are great as well. Not sure if we will come back.

Stayed here for one night prior to a scheduled tour of Taal Heritage Town. No signage so difficult to find if you are arriving at night (Google maps will get you lost!). Closest description would be the place being like a semi-private resort in Los Baños, Laguna (for the locals) or like a large private house with multiple guest rooms surrounding a pool (well, a large one split in two). Chose to stay here because I'm not comfortable staying in one of the old houses in Taal which have been converted into B&B places.

We were the only guests so I thought it would be nice and quiet. Felt kind of creepy, to be honest because of the resort's location. Not too quiet as well as you can hear the motorcycles revving up to climb uphill. Comfortable beddings. Basic toilet. Room had a dining table, refrigerator and extra sink. I would rate the place a 2 at best. The staff (the caretaker lady and her son, I think) were very helpful and accomodating. We asked them to prepare us breakfast (at an extra charge of P200 each) which they brought up to our room.

Bigger groups will appreciate this place better, I think.
