My mother turned 62 years old two days ago. And so we celebrated a week earlier as one of my sons has arranged an earlier commitment on February 25. We made our booking at Traveloka and stayed overnight at The Mediterranean House in Batangas.
Allow me to share with you the experience we had at The Mediterranean House.
The Mediterranean House
My love for open spaces and the warm sense of hospitality brought me to book an overnight stay at The Mediterranean House. This small hotel is tucked away off the main highway of Nasugbu, Batangas. If we did not ask for direction from a nearby sari-sari store owner, we might spend the night circling the area. My mom, who was driving that time, had hesitations accessing the very narrow path leading to the place. My boys, who were keen to take a rest, boosted my mother’s dwindling self-esteem.
We did not like the facade of the supposed hotel. The place did not look like a hotel at all. It was more like a pension house in the middle of a not so friendly environment. It is within a residential community and far from the well-known Tagaytay sceneries and tourist destinations. Even my boys were disappointed. They wanted a refund. My mom’s urging pushed my kids to get out of the car and carry our things inside the place. We had no choice. Darkness was fast approaching, and we needed a place to stay. We have been traveling for hours. Plus, we already settled the booking fee.
