My friend booked for 5 rooms, we were at rm110 last Feb 8. We used the same room where the make up artist prepared. Room are old I guest, coz the wood floors needs to repair and the rm115 where the 2 newly wed stayed, the wood floor has damaged. I will not Retaliate everything coz I know they know what I am talking about. My other fren ask for toothbrush Rm 109 but they said it has an extra charge. On my point of view, u can give the xtra toothbrush at the vacant room coz it was 5 suites booked but we only occupied 4rooms. Receptionist are not that friendly, not even bother ask how was our stay or experienced. Its my first stay at Thunderbird. When we had our bfast at Olives food is ok.but sevice is poor as well,how can a waiter just flip the placemat ONLY infront of us instead of wiping it with cloth to crumb coz we asked him to clean the table for 6person. View is good, the 1,000 tulips are very nice during the night but didn't manage to take photo coz we are tired. The pool was really tempting. Like what I've said, VIEW is relaxing. I still want to go back here, in spite of the flaws.

Before even getting there if you travel soon the road from Bitucan to Taytay is under repair and going there you will encounter one lane on a broken up road. We got a promo for 5K per night Premium room that was not premium with meals. The meals were fair and breakfast was just okay. The archery and paint ball range is closed due to a storm last year. The place is lush but the landscape was not taken cared for when we arrived. The golf course looked great. The main pool was good but the pool near the Olive resto was not available. When you get to the Eastridge gate they will hold your ID. Make sure you tell them when you plan to return so they don't turn it in to their office. They seem to have a very limited staff and when I called housekeeping, room service or the front desk it's hard to get someone to pick up. I ended up walking over several times to get help. In my opinion they are not ready to fully open. The casino was very small with lots of machines turned off and the live tables upstairs was roped off. The only reason we tried this place is because of the volcano in Taal. Maybe I Should have gambled with the volcano instead of the Thunderbird. One last thing I wish to say is that the road from Col. Guido to the resort is super steep. I was worried that when I go back down the hill my car my slide off the road due to the rain. I'm not an engineer but I know that the grade is over when is considered standard (which I believe is about 12 percent grade). I would not be surprised if it was double that.

I like the property but the staff are really inhospitable. Specially the receptionist, the manager of their restaurant and the waitress/waiters are really untrained.
Here’s the story
We booked 10 rooms junior suites for 10 days because my wedding location is near in Thunderbird and also they have golf course. I also booked a dinner buffet for my birthday party for 40 pax Php 980 per person.
First day, my whole family (15 persons) from the Netherlands came from airport to thunderbird travel time was 3hrs because of the traffic. We arrived 9 in the evening. We directly went to the restaurant to eat because we were so hungry ( Netherlands to Manila ETA 21hrs flight) we ordered 15 pizzas, after 1hr the waiter came “Sir we don’t have a dough anymore so no pizza” we were sitting for like 1hr waiting for nothing. We talked to the manager he said that because there’s a wedding in their hotel that is why they don’t have much supplies. Like seriously? We’re also a guests!! After 2hrs of waiting the pizza came but only 3 pieces, how could we eat the pizza we are 15 people and only 3 pizzas came!
The next day my birthday dinner, I booked 3 rooms for my friends because thunderbird is really far away its almost at the top of the mountain. It’s written to their website junior suites ( 2 beds ) are fit for 4 persons. I have 12 friends. The receptionist names Franz, he told me that the room is only fit for two people, and I have to pay per head for the additional person which is 2500php. I was like, I am paying for the room not per person. The room was really big and it has king size bed and 45 square meters big. So how came 4 person are not fit in 2 king sizes bed?! Seriously Thunderbird resorts they just want our money because they know that we are not from Manila. They charge everything. Specially the shuttle, it is for free but they want us to pay php2000 pesos going to the desired location and another php2000 going back to hotel. If the owner of thunderbird reading this review, oh please fire all those people who destroying the image of your resorts. You have a really nice resort but your staffs are really untrained and unfriendly. Overall our stay in Thunderbird was a totally disaster we didn’t even expect that our budget for the hotel is going to be double because of those greedy people. If I were you don’t book in this hotel, better stay some part in Manila not in Thunderbird.
We also found a dead frog inside the room!!! 😭😭 and few cockroaches 😢😢😢

Stayed here many times before and it was great, always loved it and now I have come back to the most messed up place you can imagine.

Let me explain, as a resident you can only now use the newer casino pool, ok I hear you say, so what? Well the smaller older pool is now only available to day guests and non resident. This is where the bar and restaurant are. There is nothing at the new pool you can only order water and chips pool side there. So if you enjoy the warm weather and water of the neqer pool and you want something to eat or drink as a resident you can only do it in your room. How is this possible, where is the sense in this especially as I have a house locally and could have come as a day guest, enjoyed the older and in my opinion better pool, had a drink and food by the pool and listened to music all at a much reduced cost. None of these options are available to you if you actually pay to stay the night.

The staff are still great and it's not their fault they are just following ludicrous guidelines set up their management team.

Sorry as I always said I loved this place but absolutely no point in coming back under these circumstances

The place is beautiful, however:

1. These mess outside our room were not ours, these mess were already here when we checked in (around 3:30pm) so i thought maybe the staff didn’t cleared it up yet. We took a dip in their pool and also had our dinner but when we went back around 8pm and these mess were still here so i called the front desk to report and said they will clear it up. The next day when i woke up and went out of room around 6am, these were still there untouched. What a sight.

2. Only one pool was open, the other pool near olives resto still closed, we went here last feb 2021 so this was our 2nd time here and the last time we went here only one pool can be used. So i think they have not opened the other pool since then. The closed pool still have water in it full of tadpoles.

3. Upon checking in, we were told of the policies. Front desk told us that we cannot park inside near the villas we need to park at their designated parking areas which is a few hundred walk away and we did not mind since it’s their policy. But when we went to our designated villa we saw so many vehicles were parked inside. We asked the guard if we can also park inside since there were vehicles that were parked when they say it’s not allowed, the guard just told me that they have already reported it to the management since there were also other guests complaining but the management did not do anything about it. Disappointing coz they dont stick with their rules/policies.

4. Garden of tulips already gone.

5. The play ground was not maintained, see saw already broken. Grass unkempt.

Waiting hall, walang aircon or electricfan man lang, walang tubig, dugyot yung nga staffs tsaka yung place tsaka mga bastos at bobo yung staffs, di marunong sumagot ng maayos. Wag na wag kayong pupunta dito siguradong mag sisisi kayo.

A very nice place to celebrate events though its very farm from the city, you will not regret going here because the place is very nice. Though we have not experienced the orher amenities because we were just here for one day and did not spend the night there, we enjoyed the function hall or events center. The chandeliers are one of the caprivating things and can never forget. It makes me want to sing chandelier. But yeah, i am hoping someday to spend a day at this place with my loved ones.

The hotel, which is quite new, has nice rooms. The superior rooms have views of the pool and the nearby golf course while the de luxe rooms have just the parking lot as views from the rooms. The difference is just $10 so we dedided on the superior room since it is nearer the pool where we plan to swim. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. You have a choice of 1 king sized bed or 2 double sized bed.

The girl at the reception has this indifferent attitude when we checked in and when we checked out. She gives monosyllabic answers to your questions and acts like you are supposed to be very thankful for being allowed to check in. No attempts to make you comfortable as hotel guests and no attempts to give suggestions to your convenience. The hotel management should sign up for a customer relations seminar for their staff for their own sake especially the front desk staff since they give first impressions of the hotel to incoming guests.

The parking lot is located at the back near the entrance to the casino but since we have a kid who wouldn't be allowed inside the casino, we have to drive to the front entrance again to enter the hotel and then drive back again to park.

The other staff (bellboy, butler, security gurads, etc.) are ok although room service for food orders takes ages to arrive.

The casino smells awful and is not very conducive to a long stay except when you're a casino fanatic. and you do not care about your surroundings. The smell of stale smoke engulfs you as you enter. The band playing even on a weekend is so-so. Not a very pleasant place to stay.

The swimming pool is guarded by staff who are so strict that only checked in guests can swim even though we were the only ones swimming. So our guests who came all the way from Manila were not able to swim.

My advise: go somewhere else for a resort where you will enjoy more and if gambling is what you're looking for, go to the the Casino Filipino everywhere else in the Philippines. Travelling all the way out here is not worthwhile at all.

Last april 6-7 i checked-in with my partner at thunderbird rizal hoping to have such a great stay as we just came back from a great vacation at pangasinan (hundred islands and bolinao). We do not complaint because of the hotel itself, it's fine, spacious room, nice foods but unfortunately the "POOREST SERVICE" that we have experienced. When we arrived, receptionists were not accommodating when in fact they MUST BE that is why they are the frontliners. Then, i would want to have just 2 sachet of coffee when someone called up and told me that coffee are not for free and if I insist, we would be charged. We were guests then and i understand, so were the casino players. But they can have overflowing in the casino and us whose paying for an overnight stay would be charged. We have tried quite a number of hotels here and abroad and that was the first time i encountered such a disappointing service. And to add into our failed stay, when we checked out, the usual not so accommodating frontliner told us that the people in our room already checked out . CHECKED-OUT? So who were we? Just someone who found the key of a room and surrendered it? Very disappointing, if only there is money back, we would have requested for it. For a free stay? I don't think so, well not unless you will change the system of what you call customer service.
