The room we occupied was small with too much furniture with no tea/coffee making facilities, although water provided on request.The balcony view was fenced and overall the property was poorly maintained. Breakfast could not be described correctly as 'continental', and the fried egg on toast was an amazing contrast with the exceptional view. This would more typically be described in... More

When you arrive at the Royal Taal Inn in Tagaytay, I can imagine a frown appearing on your face. OK, as you passed a few buildings and see another one across the street, it is not exactly situated in the middle of nowhere, but still. Another frown will accompany the first one when you see the entrance way! Steep steep... More

We had such a terrible stay it became comical! Here are some of the problems: - Steep driveway and stairs to hotel (impossible to drive down, although there are a few parking spots at the top). - Instead of having 'huge windows' (as the room was described) with a view of the lake it had small windows completely covered by...

Beautiful rooms with an absolutely breathtakin view of taal lake and volcanoe, in the morning we ate breakfast on the top viewing deck. I would definately recomend this for anyone. If you want to go to the volcanoe, buy your package here, because its 500 pesos cheaper than the packages you buy at the lake.

101% happy with The Royal Taal Inn. The staff was super and went out of the way for us. Decent continental breakfast on the roof top terrace with fantastic views of the volcano both on the roof terrace and from our own private room balcony. Kudos to the Royal Taal Inn. Mark L.

We were met by a very friendly staff who continued to be wonderful throughout our stay. The rooms are adequate but the main reason to stay here is the view. Sitting on the rooftop you look out over Lake Taal and Binintiang Malaki, the "fake" Taal Volcano. We took the standard tour, riding in a jeepney down to the lake.... More

My worst experience during long time. And the price is not cheap. Very distant (5-7 km) from the city, with no easy comunication (Jeepney). Decadent aspect, with impossible entrance (steepy, steps,...). Reception?... not really. Room? ...all old and spoiled, even the blanket down the sheet...!! (unbelievable...). Just a 10% view over the lake. People eating in the corridors...Poor breakfast. Never... More

My fiancee and I stayed at the Royal Taal Inn which is perched high up and it overlooks the Taal Volcano and the lake. It's a slightly steep descent/ascent to and from the main road there, the staris are okay to use, we won't recommend parking there. Checking in was done very well by the friendly staff there and they... More

This is a great place to spend a few days overlooking the Taal volcano, perched way up the mountain. Quiet, relaxing, very nice place. WIFI on the roof, free breakfast served in the morning , very clean and well kept. Staff is very nice!
