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.

If you want to experience nature that is a short distance away from Manila, this is a place to go to. It is located at San Pablo City, approximately 2-3 hours drive away from Manila. 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

It is outside Manila. An old church is on site. One can see water buffaloes. The history of the Philippines is in a way presented through dances. An easy and rewarding day trip away from the crowds and air pollution of Manila.

If you look for quiet and serene, this is the place for you. It is a self-contained Hacienda Resort which produces most of what they consume. If i have heard it right, one of the very first Hacienda Resorts in the world. Used to be the coconut plantation of the Escuderos and now transformed into this quaint resort. Definitely worth...
