My Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Experience

We stayed for two days at CCT Tagaytay for a couples retreat. We had a great time and I can say that the venue contributed a lot.

Our room was spacious, very neat and cozy.  It was good for 4 (2 single beds with pull-outs) that has a pretty big restroom that comes with free soap, hot and cold shower and tissue.  The bath towels come with a fee of 80 pesos.

The food that was served was yummy too.  Although there was nothing really different or special with the cuisines they served, I can say that it was not bad after all.  Just be extra patient with the cafe personnel because they get a little rattled when there are too many people to accommodate. Sometimes, the buffet table does not get refilled right away.  However, since you have (strictly) an hour (breakfast 7-8, lunch 12-1, dinner 6-7) to enjoy and finish your food, I am sure you will still have a great time.  Sorry that I don't have the actual pictures of the food I ate, however, let me share the menu we had.

Since we were here February, we experienced a Baguio weather.  There were no buildings nor any infrastructure around so the wind and fog just came around.  It was sooo cold that I had to wear three thin layers of clothes!  As we strolled I also realized that CCT is a kid-friendly place. They have playrooms, wide green space, playground, basketball courts and games that can be rented with a minimal fee (I heard over the counter that Ping-Pong only costs 40 pesos per hour).

CCT is approx 800 meters across Picnic Grove. If you want a quick get away for your family or your team, it is a good place to try.  Just one of the things I do not really like is when you have to leave your shoes on the ground floor of your building (there is a shoe cabinet provided) and use indoor slippers to go up.  However, aside from this, I think CCT is a good place to have retreats, conferences and team buildings.  If you are interested to check on the rates, just scroll down coz I also attached it for you!
