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.

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

This should be one of the best family outing location for a day in Davao. The bird show on Sundays is a must. The visit to the farm and the explanations about cacao and chocolate manufacturing very enlightening (Malagos manufactures what is most probably the best chocolate in the Philippines). The resort is currently experiencing improvement (pool, new chef in... More

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.

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.
