The Good and The Bad
May 2021 • Friends
We were there last May 30, 2021. And was surprised with the changes, good and bad. Firstly, I didn't like your idea that your entrance fee is packaged to a certain food menu. I understand that you are doing this for added income but to be honest it's a bit pricey and at the same time it doesn't give your visitors the option what they want to order. Also its ok to pay extra if the food is good but honestly its below average. With that price dapat nag Bag of Beans na lang kame.

The place is still nice with lots of improvement from the last time we visited. But please improve the quality of your food and your service. Your servers should be wearing uniform and not sando and tsinelas. Looked really untidy. Hindi bagay sa lugar. Also better to remove that packaged entrance fee.

Instagram-able place but the Food is not recommended and its over priced.
Jun 2021 • Family
They only accept cash for walk in -no receipts.
Entrance fee is not free as what they said in their FB page. We availed of the bfast meal for 399 but when we get in, (see photo) the value of the bfast meal is 230-250 so as if you pay the entrance fee of 150. We should have asked first and had bfast somewhere else given that it doesn't taste good.
The place is great if you love to take pictures.
Not recommended during rainy season.

Casual morning stroll

We were originally planning on walking to the destination since it's just about 3 miles from where we are staying but the weather did not permit us to do so. Tip #1, The Gingerbread House (TGH) is much better when the sun is out and about. It's not so bad overall even with the rain, but leisure walking is better done when the land is dry and the air is not so cold.

Tip #2, bring kids when the quarantine is lifted (please follow simple and basic rules fellow Pinoys; It's honestly frustrating. Subtracting half a star as well since TGH didn't seem to be bothered by these breaches in the government's protocol). The place is definitely for kids with all its colors, sugary snacks, and ambiance. We drank hot choco (Php100.00) in the restaurant but it was nothing special. I looked at the menu and it's a little bit pricey for my taste given that most of the menu items can be easily cooked by moms at home. The Gingerbread Man (Php10.00) was surprisingly tasty. The same cannot be really said about their gingerbread and ube cheese pandesal (both at Php100.00).

Tip #3, be kind to the staff. They look like they're undermanned. The Ate who manned the museum was also the one who manned the souvenir area and the DJ booth. They had a tough 2020 with Taal erupting and the pandemic happening. Don't come in thinking you're entitled to a 5-star service when you just paid Php100.00 for the entrance.

It's enjoyable overall. It really depends on you as a person.

P.S. Buy something from the souvenir shop. It's cheap.

Terrible food, unclean CR

Ordered from their restaurant, and food took a long time to be served. I can tolerate slow service, but the 180-peso crepe that took 40minutes to serve was....well, you be the judge (photo attached). It was served in a microwaveable container and looked totally undelectable.
Considering that it's a place catering to kids, the comfort rooms were smelly and in need of deep cleaning.

A cute cafe in the South

Too overrated. A lot of people visiting on the weekends. I highly recommend visiting on the weekends. The food price is too expensive. In terms of the ambiance, it is good and a perfect place for kids. The gingerbread house's exterior looks attractive!

Warms the ❤️
Aug 2019 • Friends
I went there with a group of friends.The entrance was 50php and it was worth it. The place is huge and the main house will make you smile. Christmas theme is evident in this house so that makes me feel warm. I love it and I am sure kids will love it too. There are sooo many nooks and crannies for photos.
Worth a visit.

After almost an hour travel, we arrived in the Ginger Bread House, since it’s a bit late, we had an hour to roam around the area. It was nice and good for young people and young at heart. Nice small playground /park and you will really have this reminiscing time as there’s loud nursery rhyme music allover. I really enjoyed it so as my son. He really wants to stay longer but we are the last people staying in the park. They are not throwing us out though but we know that soon the park is closing. We loved that little park. Kiddo got nice memories in Ginger Bread house. One of the nicest and happiest places we visited, my son said. The entrance fee is PHP 50.00

A GREAT place to be!. A place that may remind you of your childhood dreams and fantasies. Aside from the restaurant that serves a variety of meals, they also have a wide collection of decorative items, which according to their staff, are especially chosen and hand-picked by the owner, If you are a family oriented person, this is the BEST place for family bonding! Don't forget to bring your cellphone or camera bec of the so many attractions that are really worth capturing.
