Contrary to the rather unfavorable impressions previously posted, my grown-up kids and I found this place real nice and the staff - from front desk to staff - accommodating and friendly. They willingly assisted us in giving directions to UP Los Banos, served our foods on agreed time and without delay, among others. We were assigned Villas 1 and 2,... More

I stayed with four of my friends over the weekend. It was quiet and relaxing. The pool might not be as perfect as it should be, but it was enough to go for a swim. The service was fine as well. The receptionists are friendly and very accommodating. We got the poolside villa. It was clean inside and the aircon... More

This resort only deserves a 1 star. Their pillows are comfy but that's about it. I have traveled a lot in my lifetime and never had experienced such terrible service. 1. When we arrived there was no water and the pool was dirty. Shouldn't you have prepared for our arrival? We made a downpayment days before. 2. It took 45... More

This place has no business calling itself a "Resort". From the moment we entered until the moment we left, it was a ?@!!$% nightmare ! Our room consisted of seven beds, a very loud air con, one small wooden table, and a TV that didnt work. There was no in-room Wi-Fi and the one at the office didnt work either.... More

My sister and I went on a weekend trip to this resort together with my son. I was expecting a relaxing and refreshing stay but alas, I was totally disappointed. We availed of a promo I saw on the Internet and since I had a few days off, I asked my sister to come with me to Calamba. It was... More

We stayed here overnight last June 1, 2013 with kind of big expectations due to the “highlands” part of its name. Frankly the only “high” thing about this place is my blood temperature. Like all private resorts in Pansol, it has a kiddie pool and an adult pool with very very hot waters especially the one for the kids. As... More

We were transferred here from Monte Vista Hotsprings Hotels and Conference Resort. We went here October 2009, the resort was named Monte Vista Makiling Heights before. This was too spacious, our rooms were far from the "lounge" and the pool. It was not that accessible if you don't have a car, because the place was huge. It got a lot... More

Had an overnight stay here due to a night wedding we attended. We opted to stay on one of the villas and its a bit expensive considering that it is discounted already. Plus the room was not that impressive. The water from the bedroom restroom is very hot. And the water in the pool is very cold. Lol. I don't... More
