A Splendid Weekend - Splendido Tagaytay

It was one of those weekends where we had a spur of the moment decision to go to Tagaytay. I immediately went to my go to booking site Agoda and checked available hotels for that weekend. We decided to book 2 rooms at Splendido because it was cheap at Php2200. The room cost came with buffet breakfast for 2.

Going to the hotel that Saturday, this was our landmark. It was a steep drive down going to the hotel.

The Country Club

Checking in was a breeze. Staff were friendly. They even have cookies, juice and coffee at the lobby.  

The lobby contains sofa sets so guests can be comfortable while waiting.
When we arrived at the room, we were pleasantly surprised given the cost. It came with two double beds. I tried to request for one big bed but they told me that I booked for twin sharing. (I am not sure if all the rooms are actually for twin sharing. We went back again weeks after, this time getting 3 rooms, and we all got twin sharing rooms). 

Each room also had a mini-bar, ref and TV with Cignal cable. 

The bathroom came with a tub.

Toiletries were made from Australia
The 2 rooms we got had balconies with mountainside view. There is also an option to get the one with the lakeside view. We also realized when we booked again later on that not all rooms have balconies. So perhaps it can be requested during checking in, though we never asked.

All the amenities were in the other building. One can request to be brought there and the staff will bring you using their cart. One can also opt to walk but be sure to ready your leg muscles. It would be a steep walk.

Amenities include gym, swimming pool, kiddie pool and  kiddie playground. There is also a billiard table, table tennis and bowling alleys. There are additional costs for playing billiards and bowling. There is also a small shop which sells swimsuits and some toiletries.

The swimming pool for those who want to brave the Tagaytay breeze.

We guess the only downside to the place is the lack of options for restaurants. One may choose to dine there but options are limited. We had to bring the cars and drive back up to the city proper for dinner.

All in all, Splendido is a cheap staycation option when in Tagaytay. Of course, this assumes that booking is through Agoda. One can also book through their website : though when I checked, price varies from Php 3,800 to Php 5,500 per night. I suggest to check both options or other booking sites.

Keep in mind though that the place is for those who have their own vehicles as it is quite a drive going to and from the hotel.
