We stayed in Cintai Corito's Garden Resort for the surprise 57th birthday celebration for my sister. She was very happy with the experience.

The resort is very picturesque which is why we love it because our family loves taking pictures. There are many Instagram-able areas : from the gate with the two towering creatures to the beautifully-landscaped gardens, to the pool area, to the elephant portal, etc. Even the rooms are perfect for picture-taking!
Our family also loves good food and this is something that we also praise in Cintai. We had a great time celebrating ate's birthday because of the delicious dishes. We had their signature Cintai salad , roasted pork sinigang (the soup is really delicious!) , pork binagoongan w/ eggplant, and pakbet with bagnet. For dessert, we had the suman at tsokolate, and the tableya cake which I would highly recommend. All in all, it was a great dining experience.
We had a villa for our stay and it was huge. The only disadvantage is that it is a long way from the lobby and restaurant (May be difficult for older guests). The overnight stay comes with complimentary breakfast which we upgraded to buffet for just P199. It was a Filipino power breakfast with arroz caldo, beef tapa, pork tocino, longganisa. danggit, tuyo (fried fish), peanut butter sandwich, suman with tsokolate, and fresh fruits, complete with kapeng barako. Once again, Cintai did not disappoint in taste and serving size.
I highly recommend Cintain because it is beautiful, close to Manila, and reasonably priced. It is also great that they have accommodating staff.

Cintai Corito's Gardens is a seven-hectare Balinese-inspired property with vast gardens, villas for overnight accommodation, swimming pools, a spa, a restaurant, and much more. It used to be just a private family resthouse until its doors were opened to the public in 2011. It's quite easy to reach on your way to Batangas along SLEX. Just take the Balete exit. You need to make a reservation ahead of time. No walk-in guests are allowed for now. Inside you'll find lots of instagrammable nooks to photograph. You may want to stay overnight in one of its villas and enjoy a dip in its four swimming pools. Otherwise, a day visit (for Php 750 per head) will do, inclusive of a buffet lunch at its Abadi Restaurant. The place is very relaxing, with lush trees, plants and flowers in its gardens. You'll surely find yourself surrounded by the sound of nature! Just be prepared to walk a bit and to sweat it out due to the very high level of humidity.

It is just few hours drive from Manila. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. Great for family and friends. Wifi is unavailable and mobile signal is not too strong, not wheelchair friendly or for elderly people. There are number of stairs going to your room or to the restaurants so make sure you bring comfortable shoes/slippers. Bring mosquito repellant spray or patch since the place have a lot of plants and trees so insects are expected. There are a number of instagramable areas. They have swimming pools and volleyball area. Staff are super friendly. Overall the stay was relaxing.

We have visited last month and we cannot recommend this place as its just a waste of money. Yes a lot of money considering their accommodation rates versus the kind of service they are providing. Lack of safety protocols againts covid-19 and their staff is not wearing the protective gears properly where we feel a bit uncomfortable. The one we thought was a conceirge who welcomes us is also working in a restaurant which has a lot of direct contact with other people/guest coming from the outside as their restaurant is open for public. Maybe we are just more concern about our health. Who knows? Their main pool is not working and other pools are also dirty, when we complain they started to fix it but we did not had the opportunity to enjoy it until the time of our departure, as they are still working on it. Free breakfast tastes really bad and we did not actually enjoyed it, ended up ordering a chargeable one which taste a lot better. Over all, we did not had a great time here and we feel unsafe staying in this place! instagrammable spots are present though.🙃

Went here for lunch a year before, staff was so snobby. My mom asked for a coffe they said they were out. But when the poshy guest near us asked for coffee they gave them right away their coffee. And now we booked 1 week earlier but the day when i informed them that we are on our way they cancelled. Without an email or an information the day before. I have job so i took a leave. The place is wonderful but the staffs are terrible.

I have been visiting this hotel since January for simple occasion. I celebrated our anniversary in their restaurant last July. We also went back last September with my son and my nephew. I would like to give 10/10 rating during our visit. The place and pool are clean. The staff are strictly following the protocol. From the guard who was wearing the face mask and shield up to those who were assisting us during our stay. the guard and the restaurant staff also get our temperature prior to entering their premises. The Restaurant staff are polite and attentive. The food was great, I always ordered pad thai (super sarap!) I can also notice the social distancing implementation which I am so particular with because I am working as restaurant manager too. We really love the place because of it's ambiance, the attentive staff and food. I can say that every time I visited this place, I always find Inner peace on this place thats why me and my family are keep on coming back on this place.

I booked for december thinking this resort is pet friendly. I was actually excited to visit but upon calling, I was told that pets are needed to be caged when inside the room.

I bet the place is really a cool place to visit but for a pet owner like me who sleeps with their dogs, I wouldn't be too happy knowing my pets aren't as relaxed as they should be especially on a vacation. I was a bit disappointed about this but it's their rules.

But if you can stand having your pets caged then this place is definitely worth a visit. Just sharing so you have an idea if you wanna bring your pets during your stay. Ciao!

We went to this place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have booked a terrace villa but we are upgraded for free to a garden villa. The room was spacious with three queen size beds. Ambiance is very relaxing and you can have a very good night sleep as the villas are located away from the road. There is no TV or wifi access in the villas so its good that the kids have a break with gadgets. One thing that should be improved is to have telephone to communicate with frontdesk, housekeeping or restaurant.
The environment is also relaxing as it has so many trees and picture worthy locations. The pools are clean and they have two sets of pools with adult and kiddie pools. Food was not bad but nothing special either. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.

Great place for a short family getaway! Beautiful place to relax and enjoy with the family. The beautiful architecture really made us feel like we were in Bali. Moreover, the staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially Sherlyn who was very cheerful and welcoming. Overall, the entire family enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back!

Stayed here overnight. Beautiful and lush garden property that reminds you of Bali. However, the rooms really need updating. Our villa smelled like an old house and there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom which made the air stale. A big downer was the lack of wifi in the villas and due to the poor cell signal, you are completely cut off. I understand that you should unplug in resorts like these, but an internet connection is an essential these days.
