We especially liked the bird feeding dome. The petting zoo was great but it reeked with the smell of manure. It wasn't very presentable. The chocolate museum was also a great feat. Four stars because they need to improve their food. We went their past 12:30 pm and the buffet table was empty except for pancit. With a company that... More

Malagos-Garden, General Manager at Malagos Garden Resort, responded to this review

Hello Aurora M! We consider our cocoa affordable considering our beans are from Trinitario which are considered one of the finest cacao beans in the world. Our cacao beans are sourced from our unique terroir and singular locale which carry with them a more distinctive and pronounced taste. In addition to being a single-origin, ethically produced product, Malagos Chocolate is... More

First visited 12 years ago since been heavily developed. Interesting with a wide variety of things to see and do. New chocolate museum a bit jumbled but interesting. Disappointed the winery not open but well worth a visit

Really. Why? We ordered food at their restaurant. We spent about P500 for 4 people. Took a small walk. Why is this worth P200 for the entrance fee? It's not even a very expansive garden. Oh and when we were there, there was no chocolate available. There were a few bags of unsweetened chocolate. That was it. Selection is larger... More

One of the highlights of our Davao vacation. The place is amazing. Lots of things to see. I suggest getting a guide at the front desk before entering so they can explain each area of the resort (plus they can take photos of you hehe). The staff are very friendly.

Good place to chill. The cool breeze is such a turn-on, so relaxing. Their butterfly sanctuary is kinda majestic. All in all, not a bad place for a day's getaway.

Had the time of our life at the bird feeding area as flocks of birds fly to you to feed. In other aviaries, these birds can rarely be touched and in here, they themselves will come to you. Good experience for young & old alike :)
