Paradores del Castillo was originally a large home of the family of Dr. Hermenegildo “Didong” del Castillo (1878 – 1941) and his wife Leonor Inumerable Sanchez (1879 – 1929) built in the early 1900’s. With new owners, it has now experienced a rebirth as a Taal landmark for refined hospitality.The Bed-and-Breakfast Hotel is located on Calle Dr. H. Del Castillo, a few meters from the famous Casa Villavicencio, the San Lorenzo Ruiz steps to the Virgin of Caysasay Church and the Sta. Lucia Well. It is located two blocks from the Taal Municipal Market, Don Juan Boodle House and walking-distance from the St. Martin de Tours Basilica. Paradores del Castillo has well-appointed bedrooms and en suite bathrooms, with an added bonus of modern-day conveniences. Guests can also enjoy the sprawling garden with a panoramic view of the surrounding towns of Lemery and Calaca, Balayan Bay, the Pansipit River and the Virgin of Caysasay Church.
The hotel comprises seven airy and comfortable suites with a mixture of decorative Filipino styles of the Spanish and American periods, giving guests a taste of refined living. The public areas have equally impressive high ceilings and tasteful decor, showcasing how large Filipino heritage homes incorporate an open and multi-functional spatial concept. The hotel is the best example for the right use of space, with the right mix of modern and indigenous materials, for comfortable indoor and outdoor living in the tropics. Two Family suites are offered in an offsite extension of the hotel, located three minutes away by car from the main hotel. Also, located nearby is a swimming pool which can be used by our hotel guests.
The Blue Note Bar, the Bamboo Lounge, The Grove and the View Deck provide an impressive view of the garden and the surrounding skyline, where guests can relax while having meals or while sipping fresh fruit juices and cocktails. Mature fruit-bearing trees with romantic lights and built-in-speakers, free Wi-Fi internet access in all the public areas and bedrooms are modern conveniences in this heritage setting which guests can enjoy.
Dedicated staff members and the Paradores Team ensure impeccable service – always with a smile. We hope that the experience of living in our home, OUR CASTLE, will create a lasting impression on discerning travelers.
