We stayee for 3 daya and 2 nights... all the time its raining so i dont suggest you go on July. We stayed at 3 bed garden villa.. its soo huge... for a family of 5. Lets break it down so i could help those who would like to visit the place.
Room - huge.. 3 queensize bed. One sofa, small ref.
Lights are yellow.. i suggest they shpukd at least give us option and put white lights too. No TV.. i guess because the idea of the place is to unplug... no wifi in the room no intemcom. So load up to call feont deak via mobile nber.
We requested for electric kettle and we bpught coffe 3 in 1 outside ao we have readiky available coffee whenever we like. There is a sofa set putside the villa which is soo nice. Please brimg mosquito repellant coz so may mosquito outside if you want tp chill by the sofa.
Not ok for seniors coz you would need to go up and down pathways a lot!
3 pools very nice
2 portal doors for instagram pics..
Very Bali type ambiance..
Mini golf not maintaimed soo sad
Expensive for the serving portion..food is good but not exceptional so betyer to eatout
Since its raining.. i aiggest you have automatic 2 lomg umbrellas per villa..
Customer setvice thoigh is at its best...
Will i go back? I think its enough for 1 visit. 😊
We loved the place. I chose it because of its nice reviews here in tripadvisor. It is indeed Bali-inspired resort garden altho already showing its age, Statue’s paints tarnished and some of the places/pavilions/theater room were already old rotten wood smell. Nice to see and feel the warmth of most of the staff except the lady during breakfast who insisted that we should avail the buffet breakfast for our kids which we opted at first (cheaper than ala carte) but due to limited choices and all of the viands have soy (foods to be avoided by my two sons), we canceled.
Nevertheless, we enjoyed the place/amenities despite few flaws e.g. poorly maintained mini zoo, pavilions (my kids felt eerie feeling inside), and theater/game room (by the way, you need to bring your own game, lol; movies downloaded 2018/2019) because of the smile and courteousness of most of the staff. They will try to please you in every corner/place you will visit from gardener (they gave my mom seeds and plants), waiter/tress (initiate to take pictures in the resto, will give all we asked with smile), baggage assist (even alone, he took all our belongings), and anyone you bump-into will greet you.
Mostly, we enjoyed taking pictures. The four (4) pools (Main, 2 kiddie and 1 adult) were all well-maintained. Main pool (5-6 feet) was freezing cold, so my kids and my husband stayed in the kiddie pool. We did not try their mini-golf course. Altho the leaves “unli”falling, staff tried to keep the place clean. A lot of big spiders along the trails going to-fro our villas but we enjoyed watching them.
It has a total of 18 Villas, terrace villas has two-comfortable queen beds, with receiving area outside, sliding glass door (no screen, so expect mosquitoes going inside the room), all furnitures and wall decors were also bali-inspired. They are not so strict on the number of occupants (we observed some of the villas occupying more than the maximum required guests). It has a mini-ref with affordable refreshments. By the way, erratic signal inside the room and no television. You can have better wi-fi connectivity inside the Abadi Resto (the only resto inside and along Leviste, Balete area).
The Abadi resto offer ala carte menu for breakfast, Indonesia’s Nasi Goreng and Beef rendang as well as Filipino cuisine e.g. Bulalo and sinigang. Quite expensive but worth every penny. You have to try Nasi goreng and rendang. They have breakfast buffet depending on the occupancy (usually weekend), my mom enjoyed their fried tawilis; and weekend lunch buffet at 555php.
Overall, while we astonishingly appreciated all the bali-inspired works of art during our entire stay, however, I suggest if you’re a night owl, this is not the place for you coz definitely there’s no nightlife here and there’s a little bit of eerie feeling inside and outside the villas and everywhere inside the resort. Definitely, despite a fee of 1,700php for a day-tour, we will come back but we will stay overnight elsewhere. Kuddos to all staff 👍👍
Stayed 2 nights (not enough) in this wonderful greenery place.
Location: just 1.5-2.5 hrs from manila, easy to commute, locate and travel.
Scenery: Refreshing, peaceful, picturesque, relaxing place to stay and keep your mind and body away from noisy streets of manila. So many spots to have your Instagrammable pose. Well clean and maintained surrounding and pools. Birds, chicken and geese were just roaming around.
Staff: They were very accommodating and helpful. My fiancee got a sprained ankle a day before our stay, we checked in late around 10pm because we had to drop by and had her foot xray in Lipa Medix., Upon arriving staff in reception and Sir Marco(Manager) greeted us and drive us to our villa with sir Rodel since she was in pain.
They provided us wheelchair near our villa, Sir Lab (Dodong) was very helpful, very nice, assisted and guide us all throughout our stay, he tour us around the area after breakfast took our photos together and wheeled her in our villa right after, Sir Ryan picked and gave us fresh supsupin rambutan (one of the best rambutan I tasted). They gave us a sunflower and free 2 small plants from their nursery after we asked if we could bring home some,. We had our take out rambutan after check out as well. So generous.
Restaurant: Food was awesome, specially their signature salad and tablea cake dessert, glad we tried! We were always sleepy after coming out,.happy tummy!
If you're planning to order from outside Corkage fee was 1k PER meal,. You can bring outside light/finger foods except heavy meals.
Room : We stayed in Villa 14, we had 2 queen sized bed, big bathroom, very spacious and clean, we dont have heater in our villa, no slippers, intercom was not working but they informed us ahead though, the only downside in balcony was poops from small birds stucked in our chair the morning after we woke up, since it was an open space, it was expected.
Overall we had a beautiful stay,. Must visit place near manila, highly recommended place and staff. Hoping to go back here the soonest.
The resort is serene and is definitely a good place to relax. The staff was friendly. The room was also nice and spacious (good for 6 pax). The food was also good, especially the Suman and Tsokolate! The downside of this resort is that it’s not PWD friendly. We travelled with our 79-year old mom and had to assist her in walking up and down the steps to reach the villa. There were no ramps for wheelchair. There’s also no wifi, but it’s a good thing I brought my own prepaid wifi router that we can use during our stay. There’s no TV too.
Surprisingly, we were upgraded to a bigger room when we visited Cintai Coritos. We were all very happy. The villa is so clean and spacious. It smells good and family-friendly. The staff are very accomodating. If you want to relax from all the stress and noise of the city, this is the best place to go. They have clean (warm water) swimming pool, nice restaurant and very relaxing scenery. We are definitely going back!
