It's quiet, there's nothing much to do, great for sleeping...
It was my niece's and nephew's birthday so our family decided to spend it in Taal, Batangas. Our fantastic lunch was at Feliza Taverna Y Cafe and the rest of the day we spent at Taal Imperial Hotel. The hotel was a five-minute drive from the town center via the diversion road, and was in a secluded location in Brgy. Tulo. There were no signage going to Taal Imperial, it's a good thing that the place was Waze-able so I didn't get lost going there.
The room given to us was really spacious with two queen-sized beds good enough for a group of four to six. It has a television with cable, refrigerator, dresser, two cabinets, microwave, and dining table for four. The room was well maintained although the refrigerator was dirty and smelly when we checked in.
The hotel serves food but only until 7pm. They served really good sisig, fried tawilis, and steamed vegetables with bagoong Balayaan. The foods were reasonably priced and were served generously. If guests want to save, they may bring in their own food
since the hotel allows this without any corkage fee. I personally suggest guests to bring plenty of water, snacks, microwavable food, beer (if you want to drink), etc. since there are no available convenience stores nearby.
There's not a lot of things to do in the resort except swim, sing, and play billiards. Too bad, the two pools were dirty and there was a party with a lot of singing when we visited, so we ended up just staying in our rooms and watching TV. For families and barkadas who wish to stay in the hotel, bring game boards, maybe even a video game, to avoid getting bored. It's a good thing that the signal of both Smart and Globe was good in the area so it wasn't a problem accessing Facebook. The party finished after 10pm, after which, I had a pretty decent sleep because it was quiet.
Service was good and the staff were mindful of our needs: serving our food fast, providing us with all the utensils we need, and even extending their work hours until we are finished with our coffee break. Thanks a lot for that!
