It's a 2.5 hour drive from Manila, with no rough roads at all. The place can be navigated easily via Waze. I love the waterfalls and the carabao ride. Her name is Madonna! Entrance fee is approx 1500 and that already includes unli buffet by the falls. There is also a cultural presentation that will give you a glimpse of... More

We took just a day tour and it was more than enough for me. We loved the cultural show. It showcased the talents of the staff. I personally did not expect much from the food since I read not so good reviews about it. I wasn't disappointed though. Fruits were really fresh. Pineapple was surprisingly sweet. An overall ok experience.

I am OFW. I Treat my family for my birthday celebration in Villa Escudero. It was near perfect but before ending our fun, a worst thing happened. 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

for the entrance fee of P1400 pp, i think it's expensive. the food at the "falls" - its only a gimick? its irrigation. its gets crowded and lots of flies. eating pansit with hands, thats hard! food - nothing special! positive for me are the staff theyre all helpful and friendly.
