We stayed at one of their Orchard Lane suites last 16-17 October 2010. The suite itself was small, but outside the suite is an entirely different story. If you are like us who opted to enjoy the outdoors than just stay inside, the room size would be of no problem.
Expect to do a lot of walking going around the resort. We were quite far from their infinity pool, but the picturesque greenery made us take more photos than necessary.
There are just tiny letdowns to this resort - something that should be anticipated. Don't count on room service. Bring your own pots, pans, etc. Their fully equipped kitchen meant an oven gas range and a tiny ref that refused to cool the inside other than the freezer.
The suite provided us with good sleep.
Commuting to this resort is a matter of luck. If you take the Rotonda-Tagaytay (via Cavite) and then jeepney to Talisay (like we did), be sure you are prepared to wait (for us, approx 2 hours) for the jeepney to be filled and for a downhill ride on a winding road.
Be sure to visit the shores of Taal Lake (swimming there is not allowed) and take photos with the Taal volcano as background.
