Stayed overnight in their Elisa Rooms good for 2pax. It is a bit pricey considering that it is not that spacious although it offers all the necessities like towels, bathroom tissue, soap, etc plus the niceties like cabled tv, fone, wifi and free breakfast. I could say that 500php less than the price offered per room is more reasonable. Location-wise,... More

We stayed in the Mediterranean side of the resort which is quiet and isolated. Our room was spacious and had a balcony overlooking the pool. The pool was very pleasant when they loaded hot water from the spring. The disadvantage is it's far from where the staff stay so it takes a long time for them to respond when you... More

The place is accessible via the Calamba-Los Baños road. It has a noticeable signage, you won't get lost. Rooms are okay, just big enough for the family or couples. They also have dormitory-type or big rooms that can accommodate groups. However, the place is poorly maintained. Pool is dirty, some of the parts at the resort needs clean-up. Price is... More

The resort has a large beautiful garden, much better than other resorts nearby. But the management is very poor. When we arrived during mid-week day, it seemed very depressed. There were only 2 hot pools with water, but with no circulated hot water. And the pools looked dirty, with some floating insects and leaves. After our request, they tuened on... More

Me and my husband chose this resort to celebrate our anniversary. We thought that since this has been featured by ABS-CBN, it must have been a very great resort... but we were wrong.. 1.

In a country with some of the best in the service industry, this place is a total write off. What is good.... - Well the property extends all the way to the hills so its a good trek site I simply cant think of anything else. What is not good.... - Cleanliness is just average.

As a couple, we opted for this resort as compared to a bigger one we originally had in mind. Main reason was because they had an exclusive area that had its own pool. It was wonderful coz there was just one other couple checked in, it meant privacy, peace and relaxation. The room only had 2 double beds,no option for... More
