we went here for a day trip when we returned to a nearby hometown for a visit during the Christmas holiday season. We brought our extended family with us and we found out it's really so expensive in local standards but it didn't disappoint. we had a wonderful, relaxing and great bonding time here with our family and relatives, 16 of us all in all. Lots of coconut trees and farm land, so tranquil and refreshing ambiance. The carabao ride was amazing and there's even a lady at the back singing native and Christmas songs and a guitarist too during our time. Although it wouldn't hurt if to see if the singer smile a bit esp. when singing Christmas songs. We went first to the museum showcasing the collection of different things from insects to potteries, native costumes, coins and so much more and I agree from other's observation, it's somewhat dusty inside. One of the staff spoke quite rude when one of us took pictures, as it's not allowed inside. Later, we found out that most of the staffs around the resort have yet to learn to be more courteous and friendlier. But anyways, our highlights include the countryside walks, the buffet lunch at the man-made waterfall except some of the flies hovering around, the rondalla band and cultural dance show later in the afternoon. I'm surprised to see the pool quite small and quite unappealing. To sum it up, worth a day's visit if you wouldn't mind the costly entrance fee.
