Tagaytay Econo Inn, A Hotel Review

Tagaytay Econo Inn, A Hotel Review

Again, the boyfriend and I were in Tagaytay on our 24th monthsary. We celebrated it as simple as possible, as we were already preparing for our soon wedding—and we have to save money as much as possible.

I booked online for a room at Tagaytay Econo Inn—this time not from Agoda.com—but direct to TEI’s website. My reservation was for our December monthsary but due to our busy schedule, we only had the time to avail of the booking this month. Thank goodness: Cancellation is free. Well, it was a blessing in disguise, because we were on a tight budget and since I already paid almost 10% of the full payment ahead of time, Yobs paid P1,300 only, for a budget room.

First, we went to the reception building to check-in. The guard smiled at us with warmth, while the front desk staff, though greeted us, gave us the room key in a surly manner. I ignored her moroseness as I didn’t want to spoil the night; I rejoiced for the wide and convenient parking space instead.

Then, we were led to Kaye Ryan Grill Restaurant, where the budget rooms of Tagaytay Econo Inn are located. We moved our car in front of KRG so we can check for it from time to time. The parking was also spacious.

The only way to our room is by passing through the restaurant’s interior, and since we arrived at the hotel at passed 11:00 pm, they were no customers at the dining area anymore. Suprisingly, this staircase led to Room 11, our love nest for the night. Ayihee!


Stairway to Heaven ;-P

Upon opening the door, what welcomed us was a neat and organized room. It has an a/c unit, colored tv, dresser, toilet and bath, and a small window where you can peek in for the morning sunshine. I had nothing to say against it until we laid on the bed. For some couples of minutes, I could feel something was crawling and biting my legs, making me feel itchy and uncomfortable. Bed bugs? I wasn’t sure, maybe some hospitable dust mites, wanting to make us feel at home. However, this incident didn’t last. I never felt their presence anymore after I dust off the sheets.


Our Love Nest ♥


A very useful dresser, it is.


Please come in, we're open!


Hot shower is the love!!!

The next morning, we were about to checked out at 10:00 am to have breakfast while on the way to our next destination: Chateau Royale. The crew informed us that we have free breakfast—freebies are pleasing to the ears, right?—so we didn’t entertained second thoughts. We looked for a table with a good view of the Taal Volcano and ordered breakfast.

Yobs ordered a chicken adobo meal and I had sauteed mackerel fish (which was actually from the can). Both meals included sunny side-up egg, fresh cucumber slices, rice, a choice of our drinks, and fresh mango fruit (Sorry, I forgot to take a photo of it).

Healthy tea for Yobs and creamy coffee for me 🙂

There was nothing special about our meals, except the fact that it was FREE. Breakfast was ordinary—just something to fill the stomach—and worthed no more time for words. I can even say I should have had Jollibee chickenjoy instead.

Good thing the morning breeze in Tagaytay made me forget what I had just eaten. The foggy air was just so calming I was reminded that this day must be a lovely day!

Taal Volcano is more fun in Tagaytay 🙂

I couldn’t think better how to end this blog post, so I am leaving you with a joke, something corny that is worth sharing for the laughs.

Knock! Knock! Who’s there? Tibet! Tibet who? Early TIBET, early to rise!

Now, does that make sense? Hahaha! Happy 2nd anniversary, Babes!

Calling All Korean Companies in Cavite: Join the KES 2011 and Be Smart!

The Province of Cavite now serves to be among the most favorite hubs of Koreans, children and adults alike, along with Baguio and Cebu. When you go to malls, e.g., SM City Dasmariñas, you will see hundreds of them roaming around—sometimes in flocks, sometimes as couples, sometimes alone. They seem to really feel as if they are home.

Their parents send their children to Philippine schools, first and foremost, to learn English. Credits to our quality English-based education, which is cheaper compared to the rates being offered by their own country.

Not only Korean students are being sent to the Philippines for a purpose. At present, Korean companies and factories are built and established in various provinces, like Cavite, for the research and development, manufacturing, and marketing of Korean electronics and technology products. This is somehow good for the local economy because thousands of Caviteños work for these industries, giving them the opportunity to get a stable job and earn a living for their families.

Tierra De Maria Haven Of Meditation and Enrichment, Tagaytay City

Last Holy Week, we went to Tierra de Maria Haven Of Meditation and Enrichment (H.O.M.E.) to complete our list of 7 churches (We got 8 actually!). Tierra de Maria homes the majestic 50-foot image of Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth. This is a perpetual tribute to honor and venerate our beloved Virgin Mary.

Tierra de Maria Haven Of Meditation and Enrichment, Tagaytay City

Before, I thought that Tierra de Maria is just another church in Tagaytay City, but never did I know that it is also a place for healing. Millions of Marian devotees, tourists, and pilgrims from all walks of life come to visit Tierra de Maria because they believe in the healing power of God through the intercession of Mama Mary.
