We went to Esoy last year and the owner was really friendly. The hot spring was soothing. I wouldn't recommend using your waterproof cam here because mine got totally busted. :( But anyway, you could go trekking and if you further down the end you can jump from their waterfall! If you are looking for a mini adventure then this... More

A lot of fun for both old and young. Very safety minded as you can see in the pictures. We had 16 family members and some of them were stretched beyond their comfort level a little bit. Great place to visit!

when we were there the first pool was empty. only one pool available and it wasnt even hot, just a little warm. nothing new with the place, nothing that impressed us. it was really boring. it needs a lot of improvement. a waste of money and time. wouldnt recommend it .

Every expat or visitor should avoid any place that charges us more just because we are foreigners. I will tell everyone I know to avoid this place.

very undesirable business practice of charging foreigners P300 while Filipinos only pay P100. It's a shame that this country allows this type of thing! And they wonder why tourism is not growing so much like other Asian countries!
