Our 3rd Wedding Anniversary Staycation at Crosswinds Resort Suites, Tagaytay
If you know us well, you'll know that Jejo and I are highschool sweethearts. If we're close, you'll know that he was my first and only boyfriend. Yes, I'm lucky! :)
We've been together since June 28, 2002... so it's almost 12 years of togetherness!

|April 30, 2011 at Santissima Trinidad Church in Batangas|
Now, 3 years and 2 kids later, we couldn't be happier... exhausted from sleepless nights, but definitely happier! :D We adore our children, poopies, loud shrieks and all.. especially when they laugh and play together, makes my heart melt :)
To celebrate our 3rd Wedding Anniversary, we planned a staycation in Tagaytay. Luckily we came across the Summer Promo of Crosswinds Resort Suites:
|Hurry, Promo is until June 30, 2014! :)|
"Crosswinds Resort Suites is located inside the leisure community of Crosswinds Tagaytay, nestled on the hillside of this 100-hectare development. The crisp scent of 20,000 pine trees perfuming the air and the view of rolling hills with sweeping vistas offer a welcome repose for nerves frayed and tattered by the stress of work and urban life.
Sitting atop one of the highest points in Tagaytay and away from the busy main road, Crosswinds offers a quiet alpine escape, be taken away by a beautiful stillness you almost never experience in the metro." (http://crosswindsresortsuites.com/)
Yes, we wanted to "escape" the Metro! We booked a One-Bedroom Suite for one night, since the whole family came along, plus the Yaya too :)
It was easy to book since the Agent was very friendly and replied to my email queries immediately.
Crosswinds is located a little bit after Picnic Grove. The Hotel is located within the estates, about a 5-minute drive from the guard house. We opened the car windows and enjoyed the wind and the view of the Pines trees along the road.

When we got to our room, we were happy to find a spacious dining area for 4, complete with table setting for 2. The room had a fully functional mini-kitchen: with pots and pans, a knife and chopping board, and even a stove and microwave.
We also had a nice view from our balcony.
The Living Room had cable television and a dvd player. The sofa even had a pull out bed, so the entire room can accommodate up to 4 adults.
The Bedroom has a Queen-sized bed, so the 4 of us (Jejo and I plus 2 babies) could fit just right. The room had 2 spacious cabinets, one with shelves and drawers, the other with hangers and a safe.
The room and the living room had separate air conditioning units.
The Comfort Room had a shower with heater. The faucets in the toilet and kitchen sink also had heaters.
The following morning, Jejo, Kiel, and I ate at the Breakfast Hall right across the hotel, while Yaya Nini cooked eggs and noodles for her breakfast :) The breakfast buffet selection was delicious and aplenty. There was rice and viands, also assorted breads, jams and butter, and cereals. Drinks choices are coffee, milk, chocolate milk, and juices.
|Good Morning babies!|
My family arrived for a quick visit, and we planned to have lunch out to celebrate mama's birthday (May 1). Before going though, we wanted to take a swim in the pool, which was another 5-minute drive from the hotel. Kiel played a little in the playground adjacent to it.

Overall, we had a very comfortable stay there. A staycation was just what we needed, to relax and celebrate our 3rd Anniversary.
Only comment is that there was only one elevator and it was a bit small too, so it would take a while to be able to ride to go up or down. Also, we did have a problem with the toilet bowl, because it wouldn't flush properly :(
But I would want to have another chance to stay there again..here's hoping to more promos! They actually have one for Mother's Day!
