i do not have time to leave reviews but i need to say something about villa escodero to help travelers like me. this place is disappointing. do not expect too much because of its 1400 entrance fee which almost $32. Not all staff are friends. Some are very unprofessional. We saw this staff cleaning the table after the buffet using... More

My Z2 experia we used for all our amazing videos and pictures dropped on the Rafting activity. It slipped on the selfie stick. I worry less because it is water proof but noone... More

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.
