The place is accessible via the Calamba-Los Baños road. It has a noticeable signage, you won't get lost. Rooms are okay, just big enough for the family or couples. They also have dormitory-type or big rooms that can accommodate groups. However, the place is poorly maintained. Pool is dirty, some of the parts at the resort needs clean-up. Price is... More

The resort has a large beautiful garden, much better than other resorts nearby. But the management is very poor. When we arrived during mid-week day, it seemed very depressed. There were only 2 hot pools with water, but with no circulated hot water. And the pools looked dirty, with some floating insects and leaves. After our request, they tuened on... More

Me and my husband chose this resort to celebrate our anniversary. We thought that since this has been featured by ABS-CBN, it must have been a very great resort... but we were wrong.. 1. Upon arrival, it was raining because of typhoon Nona. One of their staff showed us their available rooms but we were surprised as none of it... More

In a country with some of the best in the service industry, this place is a total write off. What is good.... - Well the property extends all the way to the hills so its a good trek site I simply cant think of anything else. What is not good.... - Cleanliness is just average. I even saw waiters go... More

As a couple, we opted for this resort as compared to a bigger one we originally had in mind. Main reason was because they had an exclusive area that had its own pool. It was wonderful coz there was just one other couple checked in, it meant privacy, peace and relaxation. The room only had 2 double beds,no option for... More

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 •...
