Location – Silang towards Tagaytay; landmark is Ming’s Garden. After Ming’s Garden, slow a bit down and look for the next street corner on the right with a blue waiting shed. Turn right to that street and follow the road signs to Pina Colina (up a small hill).
Convenience – off the road; get all you need before checking in to avoid inconvenience of driving out to buy what you need. If you don’t have a car, they can call a tricycle for you. Php 60 pesos from pina colina to Olivarez Plaza. Going back can be cheaper; haggle with the driver
Room – we got a standard room and is very spacious and inexpensive at Php 2,600 (with dining table, personal ref, 2 single beds with pull out for additional person, kitchen counter – hot water pot provided). Bring utensils, cookware for simple meals, water, mugs, food. We requested for additional pillows with no extra charge :-)
Food – they have a dining area where you can eat your meals although you can have your food brought to your room for an additional charge. But if you brought provisions, you can also prepare your food in your room.
TV – regular with cable
Wifi – none
T/B – spacious and clean, strong water pressure, hot and cold.
A/C – good working condition
Pool – two depths; smaller portion for wading and pool walking and another portion for swimming (about more than 5 feet deep)
