“A peaceful clean resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I really enjoyed Malagos for 5 days so did my family, its a very peaceful place to relax and there restaurant has decent prices and ok food. The whole garden is very clean and the plants well maintained.

But i do also need to point out that the animals should be taken better care of the horses is to skinny and is not being groomed well, my niece was terrified when she saw the horses, as she has never seen horses in this poor condition.

But overall a very nice place that i would return to.

“Orchids & Butterflies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Took a day visit of the property and enjoyed the few orchids that were in bloom and the butterfly exhibit. Location is on the way to the Eagle Center and recommend a stop on the way up or back.

“A very nice place to commune with nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Be there for a day tour or stay overnight whichever pleased you. But for us we stayed overnight also to visit the Philippine Eagle Center. The two places are just so close that if you like, you can walk for a kilometer.

The garden resort offers a lot of places to see. the birds park, ostrich is the main attraction, the buttery sanctuary, the swimming pool, the beautiful walingwaling orchids, and the nice Koi Cafe for your dinner and breakfast. Yet there are more places to go around. But do not forget to taste their fruit wine from " Bignay" fruit.

To go there is not very expensive. Taxi is not a must. Be there at the San Pedro extension near a gas station and the aircon van will bring you to Calinan, from there the driver could be ask to bring you to Malagos garden resort and he will be very happy to do it with little amount additional.

If you do not like to go around and to visit the eagle center with a single motorcycle, then wait for a tricycle, ask the driver to bring you to the Eagle center and let him wait for an hour for few pesos depend on how much you bargain; and in going back the following day same tricycle can bring you back to Calinan upon request for another few pesos. In going back and to Calinan is less than fifty pesos.

A nice experience everyone will enjoy.

“a very good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

the place is very advisable to visit specially if you have children with you or if you are in an educational field trip. because they set a side a time to have a lecture in the different kinds of animals that they have. the place is wide. and you can also see many plants and flowers all around.
