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

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

I've been here last Saturday with my officemates... We just passed by the place and among the resorts that we asked, this has the most reasonable price. They dont have that luxurious rooms but I love the garden effect of the place. It makes it more relaxing... Their staff are very accomodating. I love where the grotto is located where... More

Check your expectations at the door. This is definitely not a 5-star resort. But at Php 70 per head entrance fee, you get what you pay for. My family and I went here with relatives for a whole day of fun and swimming. We rented a cottage and bought our own food to cook. This is the 2nd time we... More

The pools were clear and clean, and if one of the workers saw there were leaves, he would fish it out. The hot springs pools temperature was regulated and didn't get too hot or too lukewarm and the overall feel of the place was like a little garden with little secret pools and places to explore, such as mt.
