We've had this visit july 04 and I'm really stunned about the venue or to the place we stayed at. However, they have this very poor service and i can say two thumbs down for their management who really didn't quite understand and give us some acknowledgement to the things we are not aware of ...ironically the lower employees were...

Rate was quite reasonable. Food was served on time and taste really good. The room was clean. There's a free newspaper in the morning. The staffs were very polite and approachable. Unfortunately, the pool near the deluxe rooms was not cleaned and was not even changed overnight.

Laguna's Calamba is famous for its swimming pool-oriented resorts, so I was surprised to find out one such establishment but with more amenities to offer. I especially love how Dona Jovita Garden Resort stands out from the rest of the resorts in the area because it's highly vegetated and has lots of ornamental plants. It's really a pleasant garden getaway... More

Good: • We had solo pool that time due to less number of guests. • Location is ok. Travel time took longer than usual due to heavy traffic. • Peaceful Sort of good: • Entrance fee of Php 145.00 isn't really that worth it. • Can't use videoke after 12 midnight • Sink is located in one station only •...

Had a quick visit to the resort with my family of 5 around last week of March this year. Upon arrival to the place, was quite disappointed to how the resort looks like as opposed to the photos printed on the flyers we received. However, We chose to be toured around the resort first after placing a deposit for a... More

It was my first time to visit the resort. Overall experience was great. We did not have a reservation but booking one of the premiere rooms was easy and hassle free. The staff at the reception was knowledgeable and very accomodating. The room was clean and very homey. We arrived there at around 7pm and dinner was served in our... More

You get what you pay for, they have a number of pools and the temperature of the water is very nice. We've been here many times as my mum favours this place. The staff are accommodating and the facilities they offer are not that expensive. As I've said, you get what you pay for :)

It's our third time to visit this garden resort and so far, we have no complains. Yes, there are many resorts in Pansol area but most are private and for team buildings or for big family affairs. Since it is just the 7 of us most of the time, this place has always been a no-brainer if we want to... More
