DAY 1 - STOP # 4
After having lunch at El Cocinero, we went back to the area near Puzzle Mansion via tricycle (Php 20 / head) [Tip: I got the number of the driver who brought us to Puzzle Mansion, so he became our servicing trike driver already. You can do the same so you won't have a hard time looking for a ride!], and rode a jeepney bound for Olivares Terminal. These jeeps pass by Cabins by Eco Hotel, so the hotel was very accessible! We checked-in at around 3PM, and since I already booked our stay via the Agoda app, check-in was a breeze! All I did was fill out a guest folio, pay the Php 1000 incidental deposit (which was refunded upon check-out, and our room key was already given to us in less than 5 minutes. Here's what I thought about the hotel:
✅ THE LOCATION -
As mentioned above, the hotel is along the highway, so it is accessible with or without a private car. For those who have cars, you may park your vehicles in the designated parking areas in front of the hotel. It is also near several restaurants, as well as a mall (Ayala Malls Serin), so you won't ever get hungry. The only downside of having it along the highway was that the noises of the cars passing by were super evident during the night time, which made it hard for us to fall asleep on the first night.
✅ THE AESTHETICS -
The place looked so refreshing from the facade, to the lobby, to the rooms! They have plenty of paintings / artworks hung around the halls, and the hotel is super IG-worthy! The also have a roof deck / viewing deck where you can enjoy your breakfast with an overlooking Taal view.
✅ THE ROOM / AMENITIES -
I loved how the rooms were not that big but still had everything we needed. The hotel has less than 20 rooms, so it doesn't get too busy either, so the needed R&R is very much achievable. I also found out that instead of having so much plastic packaging on the toiletries, they have these pump bottles which stored the shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body lotion. They also have paper-like hotel slippers! If ever you get thirsty, the water dispenser is just located at the lobby and you can refill your tumblers any time. My mom and I got a bit frustrated with the cable TV though, as it kept losing its signal, so we weren't able to fully enjoy the show we were watching.
✅ THE SERVICE -
From check-in to check-out, all the staff were very courteous, helpful, and respectful. They were always ready to assist us whenever we needed it, and that really spells out 5-star service. Adding to this is Blue, the resident doggo of Eco Hotel. He's super cute and nice! (Tip: You may bring your dog to Eco Hotel for a minimal fee!)
✅ THE FOOD -
This is the part where they fall a bit behind... Our room accommodation had included breakfast for 2 persons, and while I didn't expect much from this, I was quite glad that we get to save up on 2 meals for this trip. During the start of our Day 2, we went to the roof deck to enjoy our breakfast. They had either Filipino or Mexican options that day, but I chose to go with the classics first. I had Boneless Bangus, while my mom had Beef Tapa. The rice was SO dry! I liked their atchara though, and the bangus was quote big. My mom's beef tapa was super bitin though. On our Day 3, we were supposed to try our their Mexican meals, but they were unavailable! So mom and I just swapped orders. The rice was still dry... According to mom, the coffee was good, and my hot chocolate was okay (It was actually Swiss Miss).
✅ THE ADVOCACY -
As the hotel name goes, this is an eco-friendly hotel, with repurposed wood as furniture, used wine bottles as interior design and lamps, and they even use solar panels to power their heaters! It's a great way to help our environment, with these baby steps such as checking-in an eco friendly hotel.
I also appreciated how clean the hotel was, and that the rooms smell super fresh. The linens were really clean, too! For our 3D2N stay here, I paid around Php 2,700 nett per night (for a Standard Room). Not bad at all, if you ask me. For those who are planning to go to Tagaytay soon, I recommend this hotel!
P.S.: Happy 400th |ooloo review to me!

We were in Tagaytay for a friends wedding, and my wife booked us a lake view room at this hotel because of its affordable rate. We also found it interesting that it's an "eco hotel".
You can find many recycled things in this hotel, from a cork for your room key, to empty wine bottles as light covers or serving plates, to wooden pallets that have been refurbished to suit their needs.
After staying in Spin Hostel in El Nido, Flotsam and Jetsam in La Union, this Eco Hotel gave off the same type of vibe.
The room is very simple, about 11sqm, with a queen bed, a sink, a small TV with some cable channels, toilet, and shower.
Shower comes with a shampoo dispenser, and the heater is solar powered. Toiletries and amenities are available upon request from the front desk, none were in the room when we entered. They let us check in at 1pm so maybe they forgot to put some in, although I cannot be really sure if that was the reason.
The staff of the hotel were very nice.
The roof deck is open air, with a very nice view of the lake.
The hotel is right across the street from a mall, which is convenient, to cross the street you must walk a bit to cross via an elevated walkway.
There is also a white dog named Blue who is a very sweet girl, she reminds me of Snowy from Tintin.
Breakfast is good, wasn't anything spectacular but the view from the roof deck is picturesque.
It's pretty much a good hostel, or a 2 star hotel. Wifi did not reach our room on the second floor, and 3G/4G signal for smart is almost nonexistent.
If you go in expecting a hostel, you'll be just fine. If you go in thinking it's a 3 star hotel, you may be disappointed.

...very nice and affordable hotel strategically located in tagaytay. Hotel itself is made from recycled materials. Nothing fancy but definitely decent and quaint.
...word of caution. The setup of their bed is not made for tall people.
