We were too excited that Val and I decided to book it immediately after coming home from our Cebu vacation. We decided to make a reservation on a Sunday so that there would be less traffic travelling to Tagaytay. We decided to commute going there. The travel was approximately 3 hours from SM Fairview, Quezon City. We took the San Agustin bus line from their Cubao terminal. Fare is Php 104.00/person from Cubao terminal to Olivares terminal. Then from Olivares terminal, you have the option to take a tricycle at Php 60.00/ trip (good for 2) or just take the jeepney going to People's Park/ Picnic Grove at Php 11.00/person. By the way, you don't have to worry about getting lost because View Park Hotel is literally just across Picnic Grove so definitely, you won't miss it!
Once we arrived, we proceeded to the reception area where we were greeted with a home-like ambiance and beautiful aquarium. One great thing about View Park Hotel is that their staff and receptionists are very friendly and courteous.

After a very short waiting time, we were escorted to our premier suite which is such a beauty. We had a big bed with 4 big pillows and a throw pillow which is important for us.
( I am used to sleeping with at least 3 pillows of my own.)
Minimal decorations and enough lighting fixtures were in the room making it classy and comfortable.
Entertainment was available with a 32 inch LCD TV but if you don't want to watch cable channels then you have a DVD player ready if you prefer your own choice of movies.
They also provided a mini-ref and a mini bar with snacks and drinks available at reasonable prices.
Not only did we enjoy the room but the view outside the room was relaxing making you want to stay at the balcony.

|Swimming Pool Area|
Here is also the swimming pool area which is open from 9am-9pm on weekdays and 9am-10pm on weekends. I was quite intrigued why the pool is closed early in the morning when most opt for an early morning swim. Then, I realize that the cold weather would discourage you to swim unless you are a polar bear.
We definitely enjoyed our stay at the View Park Hotel Tagaytay. Thank you once again to When in Manila, The Lil Miss and Ofcourse, View Park Hotel Tagaytay (special mention to Ms. Thea Barcenas who accommodated our reservation at a very short notice) It is one great experience for Val and me and we will be visiting soon.
