I went with my family and Fiance' and I must say its a nice place to be at. It is about 2 hours trip from Manila. Highlight of the place would be their man made waterfall restaurant. Not the greatest food but the servers was very welcoming.There is also a museum that you can take a tour in. No pictures... More

2 hrs from Manila. We bargained for transport & then paid entrance. Saved a lot. An amazing place, a little expensive for a family but worth it as lunch under a man made waterfall was included. The museum was very interesting but no photos allowed, recommend.

This place is great, they have a wide variety of rooms, some cottages right on the water and the inclusive meals you don't want to miss, cause you'll never see this type of eating anywhere else I have been! Definitely make this a go to place if you're a couple. Single guys forget it, you'll be bored.

Rates: They offer day tour packages ranging from Php 1250-1400 depending if you would go on a weekday, weekend or holiday. This includes welcome drinks,... More

This place was amazing. It's a couple of hours from Manila but worth the drive. The lunch buffet with views of the waterfall was great. Beautiful grounds, delicious food, friendly staff, ride in a carabao cart with music entertainment, what more can you ask for?

We visited with the extended family over the holidays. The setting is very pretty with beautiful huts along the river. Lunch buffet at the falls was refreshing, but the quality of food was only OK. Lucky for me I always pack forks and spoons as they encourage eating with your hands-I'm not there yet. The cultural show was nice, but... More
