Good place to chill!

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.

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. The Chocolate Museum opens in March so that's one thing... More

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 :)

It was getting late when we visited but it was still worth it the place was well maintained but unfortunately no one was around to explain or tour us around. we just rely on what we read around the park.

If you love nature with the serenity of a sprawling complex of well maintained nature then this place is worth a visit for you might spend an entire day here. You do notice that years have been invested to carefully shape this place to where it is now. It is also home to an award winning Malagos Chocolate that can... More

We visited this coming from The Eagle Center mainly to buy the Malagos chocolates and cheeses. It is a garden with lots of interesting activities but with pockets of quiet corners if one would just want to have some peace and quiet. Worth visiting. Of course, the chocolates are very very good, as well as the Blush cheese that I... More

The place is huge with lots of fun activities for people of all ages. Everything going we ordered for lunch in their restaurant/cafe tasted really good. We ordered lechon kawali, twice-cooked adobo, pinakbet, pork binagoongan. The chocolate freeze and the desserts, chocolate panna cota & chocolate molten lava, were to die for. They have their own chocolate farm/ factory &... More

It's expensive and dirty. Lot of ants in the washroom. The sheets are old and stinky though the surrounding is beautiful, nice plants.. Not worth staying for the night.
