Really. Why?

We ordered food at their restaurant. We spent about P500 for 4 people. Took a small walk. Why is this worth P200 for the entrance fee? It's not even a very expansive garden. Oh and when we were there, there was no chocolate available. There were a few bags of unsweetened chocolate. That was it. Selection is larger in other places. This is supposed to be the factory. It doesn't make sense.

Museum was still closed but we got to take a peek. Looks promising. The P200 maybe justifiable once this opens. Maybe.

For now, you can skip this.

Hello JongLee,

I'm really sorry to hear that you were displeased with your tour at the resort. It seems as if you weren't able to thoroughly enjoy what we had to offer. I guess you weren't properly briefed by our Front Officers?

Apologies as well with regards to the unavailability of our chocolate, although we're glad to let you know that we have since increased our production to cater to the overwhelming increase in demand.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We will surely let our staff know. We hope you can come back so we can serve you better.

In service,
MGR Management

One of the highlights of our Davao vacation. The place is amazing. Lots of things to see. I suggest getting a guide at the front desk before entering so they can explain each area of the resort (plus they can take photos of you hehe). The staff are very friendly. The Chocolate Museum opens in March so that's one thing I'm looking forward to seeing when I go back to Davao. There's a petting zoo, butterfly sanctuary and bird feeding area as well which are all awesome. I highly recommend going here if you're planning a trip to Davao.

Good place to chill. The cool breeze is such a turn-on, so relaxing. Their butterfly sanctuary is kinda majestic. All in all, not a bad place for a day's getaway.

Had the time of our life at the bird feeding area as flocks of birds fly to you to feed. In other aviaries, these birds can rarely be touched and in here, they themselves will come to you. Good experience for young & old alike :)

Hello Rogue0531,

We're happy to know you enjoyed our Bird-Feeding Dome. Were you able to try and interact with our other animals at our petting zoo? Or maybe a butterfly release at our Butterfly Dome? You should try our food as well. They're all homegrown and fresh from our backyard. Including our chocolates, cheeses, and vegetables!

Our staff are glad to know you liked your visit. Thank you for your feedback!

After visiting the Eden Nature park and Philippine Eagle Center why not visit another nature park. It was getting late when we visited but it was still worth it the place was well maintained but unfortunately no one was around to explain or tour us around. we just rely on what we read around the park. My daughter wanted to the try the sky walking and other activities but no one was around. We went to the butterfly dome again since my daughter is really fascinated by them but no one was there as compared to the Eden nature park. No one approach us from the restaurant if we wanted to try the chocolate drink that was famous for but no one wanted to upsale all we got was stare. Luckily our guide told us to buy chocolates so we can personally taste it at home instead.
