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

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.

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.

Maybe it would be better if you visited on a Sunday when the main show is on A chocolate museum and winery is being built. Staff were disinterested and it was poorly signed. Not all resorts are the same, only 500m from the entrance to the eagle centre
