It is like a normal public resort, except that pools is not made of tiles. The water is really cold and refreshing. The only problem we had was it was peak season when we visited so it was crowded, and difficult to get a picnic table/hut. Our picnic table was just placed under a tree (and the fee was still...

The cold springs has a humungous swimming and wading area which are kept clean especially with a garden like atmosphere. The source are natural springs from an underground river, the locals say. Very friendly and amiable caretakers and personnel.

It's a clean place with a big swimming pool. If you're lazy to swim u can just sit and let the tiny fishes nibble your dead skin ( a la foot spa). Water is very cold..so be prepared for that. Entrance is 30 while a cottage cost only 75 Pesos. We made a mistake of ordering food outside the facility... More

When we arrived at the Cold Spring we were hounded by several women with menus who wouldn't stop until we've ordered food. So we did order lunch before getting in the water, which was unbelievably cold! We were shivering in the water already! The lunch was delicious and worth the price. The highlight is definitely the cold water though!

Went there for lunch and we were ambushed by women with menus before going out of our vehicle. They were trying to outsell the other ladies. It was total chaos and confusing. We were not ready for it so we just ordered stuff fast. We were disappointed with their chicken dishes that they prided so much. We did however enjoy... More

If you like to go for a cold cold swim without chlorine then this is it. Pure water fresh from the ground will make you want to drink while swimming.

We all know the feeling of putting once hands inside an ice bucket. Well, imagine that same shivering feeling but this time, it's your whole body that you are dipping! Here's the good (or bad) news, if you're swimming in the Sto Nino Cold Spring, you wouldn't be needing any of your imagination! You'll be singing "Frozen" all of a... More

We had the place to ourselves because it was already past 5pm when we arrived. They built cottages around the pool. It was quiet and clean and peaceful and of course COLD! Outside the pool resort, there are people you can ask to cook food for you (for a fee, of course).

No crowds, but a bit off the common track, takes a while to get there. Buy a couple of bukos a the entrance and enjoy the water.
