Review on Keni Po, Tagaytay, Philippines

Keni Po is located in 110 Calamba Rd., Sungay West, Tagaytay City. It is beside Ina ng Laging Saklolo Church and on the way to Picnic Grove. It is a quaint B&B, simple amenities but great service and very affordable rates. They have single/twin rooms, family room and a villa. There is also a pool and little garden at the back. Although we weren't able to swim when we stayed there, we just took pics.

This is where hubby and I stayed during our honeymoon. I stumbled upon this place when a cousin of mine recommended it to me. I browsed through the net and came upon their website. Reading thru many of the positive feedbacks left by Keni Po's clients, I decided to book the place (well, an aunt booked it for us as a wedding gift).

Check-in time should have been 1:00pm, but we weren't able to make it since we were traveling from Manila right after our wedding reception. We arrived there at around 4 in the afternoon but the gracious front desk attendant still greeted us with a warm hello and a friendly smile. And if I may add, I even got VIP treatment because as I went down the car, a staff came up to me and held an umbrella over my head to protect me from the sun. I did not expect that from a B&B. Talk about customer service!

The rooms are a little bit small but that's expected as Keni Po is only a B&B/Lodge. The room furnishings are a twin-sized bed with huge fluffy pillows, side table and a couple of chairs. There is also a mini refrigerator loaded with mineral water, soda and beer; a cable tv and a blow dryer. The bathroom is clean with bath tub, hot water system, shower and toilet. It would have been better if the management could provide a cabinet/closet for the clothes because what they have there are only hooks and couple of hangers behind the door. 

Food service is open 24 hours. They have excellent tapa, the beef is really tender and very tasty. Their sizzling sisig is also very good. Delivery would take 10-15 minutes. Not bad. 

The staff are very courteous and always ready to smile. The VIP treatment (with the umbrella) was given to me again when we were leaving Keni Po.

If you are budget-conscious and looking for a clean, affordable place to stay in tagaytay, I would definitely recommend Keni Po.

Hi Mae, I called Keni Po and they asked for an at least 50% deposit for reservation. The receptionist asked me to deposit it to the Mary Grace Parra account, would you know if this is really the process? They said the assurance is that I can present the deposit slip to them upon arriving but I still don't trust this because there's still no assurance that I'd be depositing to the right account. Your help is appreciated :)
