We had our lunch here and had heavy rain, so we did not see much of the place. the food was not that good nor was the service of the resort, plus parking in not on site. I would not recommend it.

A little far from the city proper but it's worth the trip. If you just plan to visit and not stay overnight, then try to save 3 hours or longer for you to explore and fully enjoy the place. I was there with my family, composed of adults, teens and toddler and everyone enjoyed. But I can also imagine exploring... More

Quite far from the city centre. It is on the way to the Philippine Eagle Center. The cab driver that we tried to get wouldn't take us there unless we pay a flat rate of Php 800 one way so we decided to rent a van from our hotel for a day tour.They have a small swimming pool which is... More

Hello elviep2014, Yes, the resort is en route to the Philippine Eagle Center Foundation. On a meter basis it would only cost around more or less PHP350 from the downtown part of the city. The cab driver overcharged you more than double the usual fare. Our ingredients are locally-made premiums to which some of the profit goes back to the... More

I enjoyed our short visit to Malagos. Plants and flowers were beautiful. My favorite, though, was the bird petting area. In a huge aviary that we could walk in, parakeets, cockatiels, and love birds flew freely and were not afraid of us b/c they knew we'd hold birdseed in our hands for them to eat. So fun! I also enjoyed... More

Hello JanaK123, Thank you for visiting us. Glad to know you enjoyed the Bird Feeding Dome and hopefully that little "chat" with one of our birds as well. Hopefully, you can visit us again and try out other activities in the resort! Maybe a calesa ride with our albino carabao, Bianca? Or a chocolate-making activity at our chocolate laboratory? Hope...

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.
