“Too far”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

It is too far too drive,the place is nice, but is not good if you have small children. It is to deep for little children to swim.too far from Davao city.for my experience is not worth all the trouble going there.

“Indeed it's fun in Maxima”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

My friends and I had a good time here at Maxima Aqua Fun Resort. For only P200 entrance fee, you have the whole day to swim, snorkel, dive and slide.

Our main purpose coming here is really to try their giant tarpaulin slide. And when we saw it, it was enormous! At first I had second thoughts about trying the slide, but I said to myself it's now or never. We were asked not to place our arms on either side but rather put it infront of us. Unfortunately, due to my nervousness, I mistakenly placed both my arms on both sides halfway down the slide, thus, my elbows got scratched and bruised.

The slide was really long. Shouting while sliding helps a lot. Just the thought of dropping down the ocean (120 feet deep) was scary. However, with our life vest on and everything was so fast, you will immediately surface in the water. Apart from that, the lifeguard was there in the sea too assisting us so we feel safe.

There is also a diving board where you can jump down. I have not tried it but I will when I come back someday. Overall, It was worth it!

“Its more fun in Maxima”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

My husband and I really had a good time in this place.For a very affordable price of 200 pesos entrance fee including unlimited amenities was all worth it. We can do snorkeling whole day,dive and slide.To those people who will expect a very nice rooms,fancy bathroom facilities you can go to a 5 star hotel in Manila and to those people expect that this place a white beach then you go to Boracay. This place is in the middle of nowhere and people who loves natures, adventure,peace and serenity this place suits you.
