“Dated but a fun place to stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We stayed at Sampaguita Gardens because it was near the airport and accessible for a very early morning flight. There were facilities that needed repair but overall the experience was good. Their swimming pools are good sized. Food was good and they even gave us sandwiches for our early trip. Staff were very courteous and hospitable. I did not see their Christmas collection as it it was undergoing some repairs.

“Christmas all year round”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

This Sampaguita Gardens has a lot to offer. They have good accomodation, good dining,good shopping, good views and if you heard about the Precious Moments dolls, then, this place is not to be missed. Its about 20 minutes drive to New Washington, a town outside Kalibo. This attraction is overlooking the ocean if you're dining outside and situated in a huge property. Its so cozy and classy to dine. The food is international cuisine and Filipino fiesta food, just yummy and not very expensive. The history, of this place is quite touching. The humanitarian who developed and started this now very successful and popular attraction is a foreigner and has helped and touched the life of so many Aklanons.

“Exhilarating”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Upon a friend's recommendation we decided to visit this place since she said that it has a butterfly garden. At that time our two-year old son was so fond of butterflies so we gave it a try. Our travel time which took for about 4 hours is much longer than our stay here. But that brief moment we spent, had been one of the happiest experience.

“Good for Kids”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

This place is around 20-30 minutes away from the Kalibo proper.
One of the attractions in this place is the collection of Precious moments dolls. Kids would surely love to go here and see the doll collections. :)
