My friend and I went here for a day tour and we had such a great time. We were welcomed by the serenade group and while at the "karosa" they are still singing until we arrived at the main hall. We had delicious lunch at these tables over water at the waterfalls and the same waiter who served us invited... More

Day tour with family. The best attraction is the buffet lunch at the bottom of the man-made dam water fall, except that it got rained so we were hastily transferred at the covered dining hall at the top. The 'balsa' ride on the dam lake was fun though. A good getaway place for families and group.

We went for a day tour, but unfortunately we arrived after 2pm and missed the lunch by the waterfall. We ended up having lunch at the Pavillion. The best part of our trip was the tour of the museum. To learn more about our trip to Villa Escudero please visit www.nztravellers.com

Tucked in the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountains, this nice Hacienda offers not just a stunning view of the countryside but also the spectacular food they serve during lunch time.

Having a traditional Philippino buffet at the foot of a waterfall was the highlight of a relaxing day on a coconut plantation in Quezon province south of Manila. Also included was a buffalo cart ride as well as swimming, boating, fishing and an informative trip to the museum. All in all a nice relaxing day spent. Perhaps a bit pricey... More

From Manila, we drove there for 3 hrs, somehow waze provided a different route due to traffic in Laguna, we went through a lot of small roads where only tricycle pass by. We arrived there at 12 noon for a day tour first since we want to weigh first if an overnight stay is worth the price as 6.8k is... More

We called one day ahead to potentially book tickets but were told to just walk in. After 3 hours drive from Makati, getting lost because neither waze and google map got its direction right, we eventually arrived at the reception of Villa escudero and found.... Nobody behind the counter! Around 50 people were waiting like us but the management could... More

Very late posting. Went here with friends, it was okay for me. The lunch buffet is just right although a little bit pricey for my taste.

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
