Visiting the Philippines for a mix of work and leisure, I was taken by friends to this amazing resort. Fascinating museum, amazing setting for a wonderful buffet lunch at the waterfall and a colourful set of cultural dances at the show area to end it. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting this beautiful country.

From the moment, we took the Yack drawn carriage ride, the feeling of relaxation took over. There were plenty of sights to explore and take pictures with. They have an incredible pool with a waterfall and beach chairs which sat in the water adding a calming effect to the moment. Even as it started to rain I was not willing...

Definitely worth your time and money. This is one of a perfect example for "Simplicity at it's Best". We went there just to experience eating right next to a waterfalls but we ultimately decided to spend the night since the place is so cool and refreshing to the eyes, especially if all you see in the metro are massive structures....

Was really excited to go here after seeing many videos and pictures online. The waterfall was a lot smaller than what i imagined. it was a nice experience though. The food was average. it was nice to see the Carabao. the museum was terrifying to be honest, extremely dark. The bamboo rafting was a nice touch too. I wouldn't go...

An amazing place that reflects the cultures of modern and colonial phases of Philippines by Spanish, British, Japanese and American. The city was created by a Escudero Family ( family of a Spanish father and a philippines mother). The rich collection of the Escudero Family is well organised in three museums that reflects the culture of Philippines across all phases,...

We stayed here for 1 night. In the beginning we were attracted by waterfall restaurant, then we found out that it is located in a resort so we decided to stay there. I must say that there is a lot more than just waterfall restaurant. We arrived at 10AM, they directed us to the museum which is very nice, it...

I happen to see a video of the waterfall restaurant a few months ago and after a little research, I found out it was on the Philippines - where I had planned a visit. To my surprise, it was not just a restaurant but a whole resort and now I wished we had booked a few more nights there. The...

Nice and Relaxing place to enjoy by the whole family. We didn't notice that they don't have television in the house. Because we enjoy the place doing water rafting, swimming, picture taking, and eating at the man made water falls. We enjoy riding to their kalesa that instead of horse they use carabao and they even have singers for us...

The view is nice they have several activities for ones entertainment such as cultural shows that showcase Philippine folk dances , kayaking, swimming, fishing, museum (shows the elegance of our wardrobe most especially during Spanish era ..amazing collection! ) and etc. Etc. A little bit pricey but it's something unique if compared to others. Good for kids and foreigners .....
