About The Lake

Set along the Tagaytay Ridge, The Lake Hotel boasts magnificent Lake Taal views, surrounded by the lush green forested hillside. The well-known Tagaytay Picnic Grove is seven kilometres away.

Well furnished rooms feature useful amenities such as air purifiers, in-room safes, and a minibar. En-suites add glass-enclosed bathrooms, and upgraded rooms include balconies with splendid lake views.

The many on-site amenities means guests may never need to leave: an infinity pool, gym, a relaxing spa with massages are standard, as is valet parking and a meeting venue large enough to cater for weddings and business functions.

The hotel serves a complimentary buffet breakfast to start the day. The on-site restaurant offers local and international cuisine all day, with hot drinks and snacks on offer at Bag of Beans Coffee Shop, one kilometre away.

The beautiful Our Lady of Lourdes Church is just over one kilometre from The Lake, with the fresh food Mahogany Market around two kilometres away.

Positive Reviews

Accessible location

The hotel's location makes getting to the many tourist spots and great eateries in the area pretty easy. Balay Dako and Leslie's is literally right next door, and those who decide to take a scenic drive find the hotel's position is perfectly set between Skyranch and Picnic Grove.

Stunning views

Those who are lucky enough to get a room with a view are mesmerized by the awesome sights. Guests love the breathtaking lake views from the balconies, but also note that the view from the garden is just as spectacular.

Comfortable and well-cleaned rooms

Travellers find the rooms are clean, simple, yet elegant, and have all the basic amenities that are needed to facilitate a comfortable vacation. Linens are fresh and crisp, and housekeeping are commended for doing a pretty good job.

Negative Reviews

Pool not in ideal spot

The outdoor pool is so close to the noisy highway and visible from the outside, making guests a little uncomfortable to fully enjoy the facilities. They think staff should try to create a little more privacy surrounding the pool.

Maintenance is needed

Although maintenance is ongoing, guests still find that there are many areas that need improvement. They report that taps are loose, drain pipes are blocked causing a bit of a smell, and it's rather messy in the public areas.

You don't get what you pay for

Travellers are often disappointed upon check to find they do not get what they believe they have booked online. Some travellers are offered alternative accommodation that is not according to their original booking, and are not refunded the difference.
