My friends went here through a travel agency and it was too expensive for a day tour only. And since my friend already made the down payment we don't have a choice but to push through on this resort. This resort was a hacienda since it was too big, a lot to see. From it's fresh air to filipino style...

Good place to visit especially if you have foreigners and balikbayan tourists with you. You can have a taste of Filipino culture and tradition - riding a carabao, river walking, eating Filipino food with your bare hands, riding balsa, cultural show etc. A turn-off though are the flies roaming around and 'dipping' in your food while you are eating in...

The Escudero family's collection in the museum is worth seeing, even if you don't particularly enjoy Filipino food or dance performance. There's a fantastic history lesson to be had in the museum, beyond the Spanish and WWII info. You'll find artifacts that tell the story of the Philippines before 1500. My girlfriend didn't find it exciting—it's a museum after all—but...

Food - happy tastebuds! Staff - polite, kind and ready to help / assist Room - clean, hot shower doesn't stay "hot" after 5 minutes (heads-up: there's no television in our room - long house unit) Activities - personal favorite is the bamboo rafting on the river

Things to Consider before booking: 1. There is no in-room internet access, no tv, no radio. Wireless internet can only be availed at their Coconut Pavilion and Cafe Indigo - and these close by 10PM. So if you're looking at relaxing by the river and getting to scan your Facebook or getting caught up with your email, forget it. If...

It was fun going back to Villa Escudero after almost a decade. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Upon arrival, we were served with a welcome drink which my kids really loved. The villa that we rented was really nice. It was like a 2-storey bahay-kubo by the river. It can accommodate up to a maximum of 12 people....

We visited Villa Escudero in weekend and enjoyed a cultural dance of Philippine different areas and tradition including wedding ceremony. This place is unique. Yes it is far from Manila, about 2 hours by road but worth the visit. Upon arrival, welcome drink halo halo, then start our full day in the resort. Nice lake, wonderful play area and pool...

I can still remember my last visit in Villa Escudero. It was rainy season but it didnt stop the people from coming to this place, infact. Its kinda overcrowded during my 1st visit in this place. Highlights: Museum, Carabao Ride, Artificial Falls for Eating Lowlights: Too expensive for a daytour, we paid almost 1,300 for a daytour which I kind...

It is said by brochures that Villa Escudero will give you an opportunity to experience a country life just near the capital. In my experience it is at best average with a 2.7 rating. The carabao ride is okay for good photo opportunity with staffs playing old barrio musics.The waterfall dining is mediocre with average food and dirty surroundings. The...
