First, the negatives. Our cabana's shower heater didn't work and water supply was weak at times. And the place has no cable TV or wifi, which was done intentionally. It's not a spa, so no gym or 'masahistas' on call as well. Other than that, this farm/resort was a great find!
First of all, it's more like a 'semi-public' resort only. The lovely owners (I won't mention their names) were prodded by their friends to open their private farm up to the public, just to help in the maintenance cost of the place. So money and profit is not what the place is all about. It's about giving their guests a quiet and relaxing place to stay. And with that, I'd say that they met their objective 110%. If your definition of fun is karaoke, loud music, and wifi, don't bother going there. They don't have any or don't allow such activities.
The farm offers lots of quiet space, cabanas/rooms are spaced far apart to allow you serious bonding time with your special someone or the family. I think the farm only offers 6 cabanas/rooms for rent, so we barely met the other guests only during breakfast or in the pool. We stayed in the cabana fronting the man-made lagoon which is filled up by fresh water coming from the nearby mountain. When you wake up in the morning, you are greeted by the sound of water flowing and birds chirping. Perfect! But apart from the fresh-water lagoon, the farm also has a nice swimming pool. It's your choice!
Since it's not a full-fledged resort, don't expect a 24-hr service crew. With that, I mean don't expect a housekeeper rushing to your room at 11pm for a pair of slippers or towel. They also don't have a 24-hour restaurant, more like a dining/reception area where breakfast is served. But for lunch or dinner, you have to pre-arrange it with the nice lady named Magda, who's like the operations manager of the place. Food is simple but good. I'm particularly fond of their griilled blue marlin (soft but firm and no fishy taste) and suman sa latik with ripe mango slice. Mmmm! And the best part of the dining experience is if the gracious owners are around, they will sit down with you and share with you their life's experiences.
The farm grounds, the swimming pool, and other common areas are well-kept. And did I mention it's only like 2 hours from Manila? Overall, this is definitely a place that I would like to go back again. I just hope they continue to keep the place simple and serene. And before I forget, they replaced the shower heater in our cabana the day we checked out.
