My friends and I decided to book a hotel in Batangas as a last minute getaway and Paradores del Castillo is one of the few affordable choices left. We honestly didn’t expect it to be a remarkable hotel but it proved us wrong. It has exceeded our expectations! Affordable stay and yet, we experienced a top notch service. From the very accommodating and welcoming staff, good food, beautiful view of the pool and garden, and peaceful area. Everything that you need if you wish to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The place was truly like little Vigan, vintage beauty with a touch of modern which is the pool area. They also have their own restaurant (Cucina De Jardin) that offers quality food and amazing service. Very recommendable! It was a memorable stay so we’re definitely going back! 🥰

Stayed overnight at Paradores Del Castillo. Location is perfect since it is near the heart of the poblacion. Walking distance to most of the places of historical interest including the largest Catholic church in Asia. Staff are extra friendly and courteous. They anticipate your needs The room, as well as the common areas are well maintained and clean. Food selections and portions are excellent. The quality of the food and its waitstaff are comparable to 4-5 - star hotel restaurants.

The Best hotel to stay here in Taal, I’m from Canada but I was born in the Philippines and taal is my hometown and I always see this hotel and wondered what it would feel like to stay in that hotel. The staff are best in doing their work, rooms have a historic feeling but still feels modern, the restaurant has such great foods, the pool with a beautiful view of the garden. That’s all i wanted to say it’s a great hotel

Lovely weekend spent at Paradores del Castillo with extended family. The recent rumblings of Tall volcano and the threat of rains due to Auring had us worried for a bit but the hotel staff assured us that it was OK and indeed it was! Lots of sun all through the weekend with nary a hint of Taal's explosive power. The weather was pleasantly cool with hardly any humidity-perfect walking weather. Sadly most of the museums were still closed due to the pandemic but we still caught a glimpse of this heritage town's old grandeur admiring the elegant old houses from outside. It's likely that many tourists opted to stay away as the town's main attractions were void of large groups of people which was a plus. Now about the hotel itself, what can one say? A charmingly elegant heritage house lovingly restored to its former grandeur. We were fortunate to have this opportunity to stay and enjoy this wonderful hotel with a perfectly cool weather to match. The icing on the cake would have to be the hotel staff. From the time we inquired about booking , making the reservations for the rooms and the restaurant, our actual stay to the time of our check-out, we had a 5 star experience all thru out , thanks to the hotel's staff for making this a pleasant experience overall. Our main contact person was Sir Leomar who impressed us with his professionalism , kind demeanor and overall enthusiasm for the job. No less impressive were the rest of the mostly female staff who answered all our questions with unfailing courtesy and obvious deep love and respect for their town's history , culture and traditions. Maraming salamat din po sa restaurant staff (Ma'am Princess) for organizing our dinner and dealing with the numerous revisions, additional requests etc due to changes in the guest list. I have to say that the food was an absolute winner and very reasonably priced for its quality and serving size. Even the parking staff went out of their way to fetch one of our family members from the basilica when his car's battery conked out. What we're saying is we fell in love with this hotel and the staff and we would be back in a heartbeat but we need to replenish our travel fund first so maybe next year ulit Sir Leomar? Maraming maraming salamat sa inyong lahat. To the hotel's management, congrats on the excellent job training and motivating your staff to always reach for excellence! They deserve a good raise or bonus once business picks up again- hehehe!!

Bed and Breakfast inn is a best description of Paradores. Located in the heritage town of Taal, this quaint inn boasts of its staff. Yes, they are the gems of this establishment. Hats off to Ms Suzette, Arleth, Jersa and the whole F and B staff..worth mentioning is our pool guy..so sorry we forgot his name. Nice pool, nice room (we got room 10 which has a loft), nice decorations, beautiful garden, outdoor dining and walking distance to everything. For a calm weekend get away, this is a best option. The silver is awarded to Paradores del Castillo.

Pros: 1. Location - walking distance to everywhere, church, market, cafes, parks and tourist sites. 2. Design/Architecture - Old Spanish (bahay na bato) houses converted to a hotel, the owner was able to preserved the structure, well kept and maintained. The hotel is very charming and nostalgic. It will definitely bring you back in time. 3. Rooms - nice interior and very clean. They do disinfect everything A LOT! Well selected furniture and accessories, the 4-post bed is the highlight of most rooms. The bathroom is very clean. The bathroom fittings specially of the shower are very impressive. They used matte black vintage accessories. Towels are soft and smell fresh from laundry. They even provide you complete toiletries. 4. Food - very good specially the Famous Pinoy Dishes. We loved the bagnet, chicken adobo sa dilaw, super crispy pata and sinigang. Even their Pinoy meriendas are yummy, please try their suman with tsokolate-E! Unlimited kapeng barako during breakfast. 5. Open spaces and common areas - since pandemic, having a lot of open spaces count and now a big consideration. Paradores has a lot! They have Al Fresco Bar and Dining, a nice garden, roof deck, overlooking pool and living/dining halls. Social distancing is not a problem at all for they have SO MUCH space. 6. Last but not the least..the STAFF!!! They are reason why we enjoyed our Holiday. Special mention to the following people: Arleth, Jersa and Marianne. Everyone warmly welcomed us and made sure we are comfortable (and safe). Yes, we had some concerns during our stay but Paradores team is so great in addressing all of them and making up for it. Thank you very much for your excellent customer service. For improvement/suggestions: 1. Food - add more Taal specialties to the menu such as sinaing na tulingan or tawilis, Batangas Lomi, goto or arroz caldo. More selection of fruits, such as banana, mango, pineapple and watermelon. 2. Do not allow personnel to use their outside shoes inside the guest rooms. Provide slip-ons as footwear to personnel for easy wear/removal. 3. Maybe provide a safety/hygiene kits (masks, alcohol and disinfectant spray) in each rooms.

What I love: - room design, restroom design, hotel design - cable tv - own wifi router inside the room, fast wifi - bed; so comfortable - breakfast buffet - courteous and honest staffs (I left my wallet on the hotel lobby while taking pictures and the staff returned it to our room (annex), too bad i failed to get his name) - hotel has swimming pool - complete hotel complimetary items (toiletries, etc) - complimentary wine from the hotel for our new year's eve celebration - the hotel even has a thank you letter after we checked out, and a discount coupon for their partner hotel. - we watched the fireworks from the hotel's veranda and it was very beautiful to the management, it really is a great job!! 🥰🥰🥰 For Improvement: - i failed to ask or inquire about the room i booked, which is in annex. i didn't know that it was a block away from the main hotel, so is our parking, swimming pool, dining area, reception area. - room is a bit small but the design compensates - it was really hard adjusting the hot and cold water in shower. it was either too hot or quite cold 😅 - lacks outlet in the room

It was amazing to see how quickly the hotel managed to kick back after the Taal volcano eruption. One does not feel at all the village must have looked like a ghost town only a few weeks back. Rooms are superb and staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Me and my husband stayed for a night in Paradores del Castillo and booked their Niyog room. It was enough for 3 to 4 people but since all rooms are booked we had no choice. At first, we are taken a back because it is quite pricey (5,500php) for a night but we are really exhausted and wanted some rest. The staff showed us inside for us to decide and when I saw that breath taking view from the veranda, I told my husband that we should take the room. Paradores is really relaxing, the ambiance inside the second floor hall brings you back to spanish era and the memorabilias inside are exquisite. The cute little wooden figurines are so interesting. Everything fits well in the heritage town. The breakfast buffet is also nice, they serve Filipino food and kid's staples, cereals. I'm just quite disappointed there is no egg station, but it's fine. Again, the ambiance on their resto made it so rustic, it's kinda therapeutic. All their staff was courteous, very pleasant and accomodating. They even had a little map that you can follow to really get to go around Taal. Across the hotel is another old house where you can rent old looking clothing and have a photoshoot. We enjoyed that too. I highly recommend that you stay here if you ever see yourself wandering around Taal Batangas.
