A belated happy birthday once more! Thank you for the feedback and recommendation. We truly value this!
Glad to hear you'll be back - it'd be our staff's pleasure to be of service to you once more.
Its true - they have the nicest, courteous, all-smiling staff around the hotel. You can walk and explore the place, e.g. farm, and its good for photo shoot too. At night, they do bonfires, and play movies. Its really good for staycation - highly recommended.
Dear Lora Jane Y,
Thank you very much for the review and recommendation. And thank you for the compliments to the staff...they will never tire of hearing that our guests appreciate them. We are glad you had a good staycation and hope to see you return again!
I stayed in this hotel due to a training from my office. I brought my family because a breastfeeding mom needs to bring her lil one so I can maintain my supply. I stayed there for 4 days and we all enjoyed it. First, the room I got is spaceous for the 3 of us (my mom, hubby and baby girl). Their rooms has a quaint terrace for you to enjoy the view and lush side of Tagaytay. Food is so good, if not the best! You'll get value for your money! Servings are big! Although the buffet breakfast is not your usual international choices still you will enjoy it! They have a farm, meaning not just plants but animals too which is something that you and your kids can enjoy visiting. Other than this are already the similar amenities you can experience with other hotels. They have wifi in the room and hot&cold shower.
For me, if you want a laid back and cozy hotel just to lounge and enjoy the food then I will suggest this one. My husband and I are planning to book again soon!
Also, it's a plus that all staffs are friendly and accommodating.
Dear Leslie S,
Thank you for this detailed, 5'star review. It's wonderful to see you and your husband really enjoyed it and brought your baby to stay.
We are so pleased that you consider our food the best in the area...Chef is definitely happy.
We look forward to your family's return...I'm sure your little one will enjoy the animals and open spaces as time passes. May you create special memories every time you are here!
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel especially my children. They were able to go swimming, play in the playground and game room. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely visit again cause my children will not get bored in this hotel.
Thank you for leaving a 5 star review of your stay at Hotel Kimberly Tagaytay. It's great to know you and your children enjoyed it! We certainly look forward to your next visit.
Our family visited Hotel Kimberly for the second time last February 2017 to celebrate our child's 5th birthday. As we were also here 3 years ago, we got the impression that this hotel is indeed family- and child-friendly.
As our child is now more mature, he got to enjoy the hotel services and facilities better. Overall, I believe he had a great time. He especially enjoyed the playground and the mini zoo.
The staff were still very accommodating and responded to our requests courteously. They even obliged to give a slide of cake and sing a birthday song to our son during breakfast.
The room and the hotel amenities (e.g., pool area, garden) were clean and relaxing. The playground and the mini zoo were engaging, especially for kids.
The food was fine and worth the price.
Internet (wifi) access was weak though.
Overall, our family experience for the second time in Hotel Kimberly was very good. And for us, this hotel is always worth coming back to.
Thank you so much for this detailed and wonderful review!
It's always a pleasure to see our guests return and enjoy themselves time and time again. And it is an honor and privilege for us to see you celebrate special occasions at Kimberly.
We hope to see you return again to create more warm memories of your family!
1.Room: Nothing fancy but it is spacious and clean. Barhroom design is quite outdated but still acceptable and beds are comfortable. Room 401 balcony "view" is - the roof... Over all 4/5
2. Food: Great.. and price is not too expensive. Also love the fact that they serve most dishes with lots of fresh vegetables. Probably fresh from their farm.
Buffet breakfast is also good. Quite a number of choices from american to filipino breakfast( tocino, pancake, french toast, pork, etc) 4/5
3. Parking: We check-in on a sunday so there's lots of parking space..5/5
4. Pool : average size . Some creativity with additional water features would be great.3/5
5. "Mini zoo" and playground . Nice additional attration for kids. Would be better if animals were roaming freely. Would give the place a more nature feel.3/5
6. Staff: great friendly staff almost comparable service when we visited pearl farm. Very courteous and would greet you everytime you cross path..Life guard (Chito) is very friendly and thanked us for visiting the place, he goes extra mile to attend to your needs, he even gave us candle while dining near the pool to shoo away some hovering flies... Waitress (Aira) very accomodating and great service, very polite. Doorman, room boys and other staff always ready to greet you with a polite smile. I was surprised thay my 8 y/o son even wrote a note before we left for the great service. He does that everytime he enjoys our stay. 4/5
1. Reception counter staff : One of the most terrible reception staff i have ever encountered. If it was only one person id probably understand. But all 3 or 4 of them were total failure when it comes to guest service. We came from manila and was really tired of the travel , we arrived a little early (around 1pm) and took my chance to ask the reception desk if we can do an early check in.
One staff said theres no avalible room and check in is at 2pm. ( ok..we knew its 2pm. We just asked just in case room is already avail. It happens sometines with other hotels). Btw, she said this in a not so pleasant way. ( parang , gusto sabihin ang aga aga pa eh). We'll at least they could said in a nice way sana. Anyway, i knew check -in is 2pm so we just waited near the playground. I came back at 1:50pm thinking its only 10 minutes and my two kids already wanted to change clothes and take a nap. Still i was informed to wait at exactly 2pm . (They seemed annoyed that i came back still 10 minutes before 2.
So.. we waited....again..)
.It was already 2:20 pm and still we do not have a room , i was almost getting impatient ...but didnt want to spoil our short overnight vacation. I just went outside to get some fresh air.. On my way out i asked the doorman, "what time is your check-in? "...... "2pm sir, what room are you checked in? " he said. I told him "hangang ngayon wala pa ngang binibigay na room". And the doorman went to the reception to fup our check in. .only after that we were able to get a room.
Since there were 4 of us (my wife +2 kids) whos going to occupy the room.. i asked the receptionist if i can request for a spare card key. (As i always do when i check in) . The one in red told me "one keycard per room policy only". Wow.. even 1 star hotels can give you spare card keys sometimes. I didnt say anything..just went to our room with only 1 card key. Few minutes later i went down to get additional stuff in our car and when i came back to our room.. theres no doorbell so i have to knock hard and wake up my wife and kids whos already resting.
I decided to come back to reception again and asked a different staff if they dont really give out extra keys. The staff(not the previous 3 receptionist) this time said " nag bibigay po depende sa availability. " i thought.. well there were only like 3 or 4 cars parked so malamang marami naman available cguro na card key.
She picked up a card and asked the other staff to program it. Finally additional key was handed over to me by a non smiling / frowning receptionist.
I cant believe these receptionist. They totally destroyed the friendly atmosphere that all other staff provided.
Here are their pictures.
These 3 receptionist should be given a full course on guest relation .
Would i recommend this hotel?
YES but only if you can check in without going through these untrained receptionists.
