After a long day at the beach, it was hot springs time at Ardent. Quite crowded when we got there because of the All Souls day holiday but we still enjoyed our time.

So somebody write that the hot springs are only a swimming pool....so if you look at them it seems like this. But the water is of volcanic origin and contains sulfur. so this water has various therapeutic effects ( i.e. rheumatism) so it is not reccomended to stay over 20-30 min in the 38degrees warm water. The area has some... More

First of all it's not hot. Second it's a swimming pool for kids. Not what I would call a hot spring. It reminded me of a lazy river. Mosquitos and biting ants everywhere!!!!! Disgusting and will not recommend.

Ardent Hot Springs are heated by the hot water from Mount Hibok-Hibok, an active volcano on Camiguin Island. The last time we got to visit Camiguin Island was in December 2014, and everything is still pretty much the same as we remembered it when we were last there in 2008. There are signs directing you up Mount Hibok-Hibok to Ardent... More

Camiguin has almost everything. Waterfalls, springs, mountains, etc.. One of my fave is the Ardent Hot Springs located at the top of a hill. This natural hot spring is unique due to its cascading and multi- elevated pools. I prefer to dip at the topmost pool where they say has the hottest waters. The pools are designed to look "the...

Destination to be tapped after a long day of tour. The warm water relaxes the body and calms the mind.

Your Camiguin adventure will not be complete without visiting this place. Entrance fee is quite cheap and you can enjoy the relaxing hot spring dip that eases your day trip woes.

We are a bit disappointed because the springs is not hot as we expected, there are some area that are hot which you need to find so you can feel it because some of the local told us that they mix with cold water and cemented the hole where the hot water flows.

We went there by motorcycle since its cheaper. The exact location of the hot spring is a 15 minute trip from the main road of Mambajao. Before you get to see the entrance, there are souvenir shops along the side of the road. The entrance fee is just 30php. The resort was beautiful. Trees and plants everywhere. It was a... More
