It was Php 1250 each, includes gulaman welcome... More

So, I always take first-timers with me and act like a tour guide. I came here with my family, It was all our first time so we were soooo excited. It starts of with a welcome drink at the reception. The staff were clad in filipiniana costumes and we were lead to a chapel-cum-museum. It was darker and gloomier than... More

Come to this place on weekends and experience a cultural show by their in house staff. very talented staff indeed. food is okay. place is cool despite the direct sunlight. but the man made falls makes the area okay.

The place is quite unique of its kind, in which the quest will have to take its lunch beside the man-made falls, eating while seated in the bamboo chair and tables with water from the falls flowing over their feet, then will be entertain with a cultural show (part of package) in the afternoon.

Carabao ride as a taxi wow,,, with singing staff serenading us.. beautiful landscape, nice ambiance,, very refreshing, lunch at the falls, dining table over running water, cool breeze from the forest and singing birds around, Villa Escudero is a must, a very reasonable price plus a take home photo of yours with extra charge,

We stayed on a Monday night at Villa Escudero. Purpose of trip was birdwatching and for those unaware the grounds and river are an excellent place to see some rare endemic birds. The manageress has also built a new wetland area to hopefully bring in another set of birds. We stayed in one of the riverside cottages, the one furthest... More

Nice place to enjoy outside the 'jungle" of Manila. Lovely scenery & great place to enjoy some traditional food in an historic location.
