This attraction is on Samal island, not in Davao City. I have asked TA to correct the map location and listing. I hired a tricycle for an expensive P1500 day tour that included Maxima. Make sure you go to 'Maxima resort' and not the 'house' as we initially did. There is a funicular to take one down almost to sea... More

Terrible and boring place. The only fun thing there is the slide. There is really nothing else to do there. The blob is closed because it is dangerous. Other activities are overpcied. Unfriendly and lazy staff. One guy was laying on the table and watching basketball on tv. Security guard was playing clash of clans on his cellphone. We stayed... More

Me and my best friend went there for a day tour. It's Php 300.00 per person. It was so worth it. The big slide is so fun! It was kinda gloomy when we went there but we enjoyed our stay there. :) It's one of the must-see and must-try in Samal Island.

If you are looking for an awesome adventure, I suggest t visit this place in Samal. An experience that I can't forget as their slide is really long and terrifyingly fun! I surely would recommend this place especially for people who are looking for awesome adventures and great memories! I find their price reasonable as well.

Super overpriced! No shampoo, no soap and you will even use salt water to bathe! Toilets are unclean and no resort staff who could assist you during night time, only security guard on duty will entertain your queries. The room has insects and unclean with lizard's poop, windows are "native lanay blinds" only. We don't have blanket on our room... More

Went here in Nov 2015 We were just here for a day trip, I think just 5 hours. I love the giant tarpaulin slide and the blob. Comfort rooms are not that clean, we just went back to our hotel to wash up.

IF you are the type to enjoy water sports such as very high water slides and other water inspired sports activities, you will enjoy this resort in Samal Island which is about a twenty minute ferry boat ride from Sasa Pier in Davao City.

Who would have thought that a tarp can be converted to a mega slide? Wow. A cheap but exciting experience in this resort. The No corkage fee is the best part of their policies. For spontaneous gatherings of Family and friends.
