“Christmas all year round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This Sampaguita Gardens has a lot to offer. They have good accomodation, good dining,good shopping, good views and if you heard about the Precious Moments dolls, then, this place is not to be missed. Its about 20 minutes drive to New Washington, a town outside Kalibo. This attraction is overlooking the ocean if you're dining outside and situated in a huge property. Its so cozy and classy to dine. The food is international cuisine and Filipino fiesta food, just yummy and not very expensive. The history, of this place is quite touching. The humanitarian who developed and started this now very successful and popular attraction is a foreigner and has helped and touched the life of so many Aklanons.

“Exhilarating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Upon a friend's recommendation we decided to visit this place since she said that it has a butterfly garden. At that time our two-year old son was so fond of butterflies so we gave it a try. Our travel time which took for about 4 hours is much longer than our stay here. But that brief moment we spent, had been one of the happiest experience.

“Good for Kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This place is around 20-30 minutes away from the Kalibo proper.
One of the attractions in this place is the collection of Precious moments dolls. Kids would surely love to go here and see the doll collections. :)

“Happy thoughts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

I always love being here. Feeling Christmas season all year round plus the collection of Precious Moments dolls. The entrance fee of 50 php is affordable plus you can use it for food or souvenir items.. family time is great here.

“Christmas Everyday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

I was not expecting this place in Kalibo at all. It's uniquely different for the location. I felt as though the house belonged in Colonial America or Europe. The gardens are amazing especially with the decor. I like the tropical feel and most especially the greenery all around. The Christmas tree near the sea was simply magical. I wish I could have visited this place at night. One day I will. Will come back again and perhaps stay there.
