Malagos wasn't too bad but it is under mass construction at the moment. We went to the birds sanctuary which is located in the park which was great. They have monkeys and many other animals to look at.

We were only able to see the Butterfly Sanctuary. We had fun there. The rest of the resort is under construction. Service at the restaurant was upsetting esp. when you have a hungry, cranky senior and teenage boys with you. Food took forever to serve bec we noticed it was served to the other tables. Food was also served in... More

While the facility is still undergoing major renovations, it is beautiful with well-informed staff happy to share their knowledge of their excellent chocolate, as well as everything else I pointed at and asked questions about. Gorgeous gardens will soon be augmented by a modern chocolate museum. This is a go-to spot I am looking forward to returning to.

Malagos Garden Resort is a nice place to have lunch and unwind. The place has a lot of activities for recreation. They have team building venues that can be fun for groups. The food you can order for sharing at their own restaurant. Must try is their tablea panna cotta.

Malagos is one of the oldest resorts in Davao. Back then when people would stay in Davao to enjoy resorts (now, they often go to the nearby island called Samal), people would visit here a lot. People still go here but it's usually at the end of the list of places to go. However, the place is great for nature-loving... More

It was bird feeding time when we arrived , and it was really fun and stress relieving. Butterfly sanctuary was also one good highlight of the visit.
