Mark and Marlon were great! They drove me down to the plantation safely and Mark took me through the museum that had all sorts of artifacts that I never expected! There were real shrunken heads, dolls and money from all around the world, ancient things from before Christ (BC), taxidermy, a picture of Jesus made from the words of the bible (so small you needed a magnifying glass to see the words), Nazi gear, clothing worn by prominent figures, jewelry, collectibles (bugs, stamps, etc), and much more! Very exciting to see, although they didn’t allow pictures inside. Then we ate in the flowing water at picnic tables. Delicious food and fresh coconut juice. Very interesting experience!

My husband and I availed overnight stay which includes the full-day tour. We couldn't fully enjoy the day tour because of the rain. But the eating experience at the waterfalls is exotic. Probably one of the unique experiences for us. The next day we asked if there were free rides to tour the entire Villa but were told that there were none.

Nevertheless, it's worth trying especially if you are a big family.

I’ve been in Villa Escudero in 2010, 2012 and 2022. No new activities or attractions were added. Same carabao ride, museum self-tour, swimming pool, cultural show and lunch menu. Pool though was improved and expanded. Faster service and better food choices and quality during cultural show. Better photo quality by official photographer. More items in the souvenir shop too. They added a covered dining hall which is nice for those who cannot go down the waterfalls to eat.
But I noticed staff was less friendly and smile less too.

The place look good and definitely a nice attraction but staff is so rude and no safety measures what so over unless its convenient for them myself and another family member fall on the stairs going to the rafting aria in the pool aria yet they didn’t offer any medical help just the safety ppl come to help me stand. the stairs going there have no rails or any nonskid material to prevent ppl from falling down. But they tell you to wear a shirt on the raft for safety reasons and your kids can’t be in the pool with you for safety reasons and any time they don’t want you to do something they tell your for safety reasons and they don’t have any ideas what is safety is

I enjoyed our stay in Villa Escudero! My family had a great experience in riding the ba,mboo rafting and getting to eat near the waterfalls. We also watched the Philippine Experience Show and loved the food that were freshly served to us. The rooms were very comfortable and we have a great view in front of our room. Definitely a place to visit again!

The day tour was for P1600/person if you go on a weekend.

The activities included are:
1. Museum Tour
2. Carabao Ride
3. Lunch at the Waterfalls (drinks not included)
4. Cultural Show
5. Swimming at the pool

Good for a day tour. Plenty of quiet spaces.
The Cultural Show was good so you should watch it. However the coffee I ordered here was very very sweet!

It was a day tour for the UST BSN Batch ‘80 4-year course last February 6, 2020. We decided to try this countryside resort which is a working self-contained coconut plantation. With the tour comes a visit to the museum, bamboo rafting, carabao ride, cultural show and a buffet lunch under the waterfalls. You have to start early to avoid the heat as you have to go around a large area.
About the museum, no picture taking is allowed. From the outside it resembles a church. Inside are memorabilias big and small. There’s a guide who gives an insight to the history of the Escuderos and the plantation. The guide was so accommodating. He took our group photos. Then we were able to ride the cart with a carabao to go our next destination. At first I was hesitant coz I pity the animal but the driver explained there are tires so the carabao won’t have a hard time.
The buffet lunch was the best. It was refreshing having your feet soaked under the cold water from the falls while getting food and while having lunch. The food was excellent. Native and very Filipino. Choices are just enough. It was non-stop taking photos especially with the waterfalls. You can actually get wet if you want.
Last on the itinerary was the cultural show. Another part not to be missed. All the performers were very good. There’s a story to every dance. You could see that they really worked hard to come up with the best performance.
Great experience. Worth the price. Staff are very welcoming, cheerful and attentive. This place is very commendable..
