Found this place in the net to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Got enticed by the Maharashtra and the 1-hour massage promo for Php5,500. It was roomy and quiet except for the sound of passing vehicles along the highway.
Parking: Unsafe. 3 cars squeezed in a tight space in front of the establishment with only about 5-7 meters from the national highway.
Room: We reserved the Maharashtra Suite. They have free wi-fi. Floor not carpeted. Blanket/ comforter clean but overused & threads are coming out. Pillows are suspiciously??? clean (it doesnt smell but the color is suspicious). Exclusive balcony is narrow, un-tiled, grills are rusty with blue paint, with a septic tank smell and pvc pipes were visible(smelled it when I woke up at sunrise), door to the balcony is too small and my fingers were pinned twice, not even a single plant on any of the pots considering that plants are cheap in tagaytay. Curtains had cobwebs and dusty. Lounging chair needs cleaning/replacement. Glass walls are filthy. TV is a 21-inch conventional one (I was expecting an LCD).
Restroom / Bathroom: Spacious. Hot shower isn't always "hot", bath essentials (shampoo, soap and toothpaste) are not for a suite accommodation. No bathrobe, free slippers (we have to share the pair for the shower room), no extra toilet paper, trash bin has no cover, no hair blower, and the worst of all--the bath towels are old,overused and torn!
Reception: needs some refurbishment. lounging chairs and curtains are smelly, dusty and filthy, furniture need some cleaning. We have been seated for twenty minutes in their lounging area but were not even offered any complimentary tea or coffee or even water.
Staff: Friendly but untrained.
Spa: What spa? While it's free (1-hour), I can get a much better spa treatment for Php600 in a Malate spa than the worth Php800 Swedish they offered.
Food: Best beef masala I had ,no question about that. I have requested for a candlelight dinner set up for 2 at the balcony. Good thing weather did not permit. Otherwise we could have ended up gulping the septic tank aroma. Set up was made in the dining area inside the room. Helpful staff. . Breakfast so little. 1 egg, shredded margarine, 2 pieces bread 3slices of cucumber and brewed coffee.
View: Beautiful (sans the septic tank smell).
Over-all assessment: Not worth it. Can't be considered a suite.
