    Excellent Customer Service
    We had an enjoyable and memorable stay in this Garden Resort. They have clean room and very attentive staff. They one dish that we wanted to try but it was only served during dinner time. Thanks to Ma'am Nina for accommodating our request if we could try the "Nilotlot na Manok"prior checking out. It was a delish meal for our lunch.

    Super awesome place for birding!
    While the original plan was to hike trails at the foot of Mt. Apo, I was redirected to this "gem" in Malagos instead. The expansive resort is home to various flora and fauna. The resort hosts daily bird watching activities and has recorded sixty plus bird species, one of which, is the star bird Southern Silvery Kingfisher. Very friendly staff. Food was fantastic. A must try dish is the "Linotlot na Manok". I enjoyed staying in the lodge near the creek, as the flowing water, rustling leaves and bird calls are true music to the ears! Thank you Malagos staff for the memorable experience! Tip: The resort hosts The Big Year Davao every first Saturday of the month they also cast bird shows on weekends.

    Amazing experiences all around
    Every detail of our stay at Malagos Garden Resort was planned exquisitely. From our greeting to our departure, the staff were courteous, knowledgable, and anticipated our every need. The meals were amazing with a very good variety of foods to choose from. The facility was clean and well maintained. Our family participated in everything we could while we were there, from chocolate making, bird watching, bird shows, and horseback riding. The evenings we were able to stroll around the grounds and felt like we were the only guests there. The entire visit was magical and unlike any resort we've ever stayed in before. I would highly recommend Malagos Garden Resort.

    Great Food and Ambiance
    I went there for my birthday! While confirming my reservation they were very accommodating and made sure that we had the king-size bed since my kid would be sleeping with us. We used Viber to contact them and they are very responsive. The food is amazing and the ambiance is just relaxing. The only downside is that they don't have a lot of activities to do and more sightseeing but it's fine since I cannot do strenuous activities at the moment. The highlight of our stay was the room and food.

    Malagos is Superb
    This is a must visit place in Davao, my entire family had a delightful experience in this place because of the amazing customer service with Kuya Dante and Miss Nina as well as the Front Desk staff Miss Juvy and Joy. We enjoyed the chocolate museum as well as the bird dome. My mom and aunt had big smiles with the cockatoo and the other species of birds at the dome. We also enjoyed chocolate making with the helpful staff Miss Lorin, she granted our simple requests and aided us in our chocolate molding. Thanks to the entire team for offering a shuttle tour with my mom and aunt who are finding it difficult to walk around considering their age. I love our stay at the Mariposa Villa and the servers at the Koi Cafe were prompt and friendly. I wish we could stay more days, but will definitely come back for more of the Malagos Garden Resort. We want to watch the bird show hehe. Thanks Miss Nina and the entire team. God bless u all.

    Nice place to enjoy nature.
    From Philippine Eagle Center, I took a pedicab towards Malagos Garden Resort (fare: ₱30). Entrance to the resort is ₱495 and you are not allowed to bring in food/fruits (you may leave them at the reception area). The ₱495 includes a complementary snacks of tuna and chicken sandwich with banana chips. The food is really filling and their restaurant is really cozy. It was raining hard when I get there so I had no chance to visit the whole resort. The attractions closes at 5pm so better be early when you go there so you can enjoy the attractions. My suggestion is wake up at 6am and travel towards Philippine Eagle Center. From the center, go directly to Malagos Garden Resort and stay there until 5pm. After my visit, I headed towards the exit and took a pedicab towards Tolada in Calinan (fare is just ₱30). Then took a van (fare is approx ₱60) towards Roxas Night Market (just across Ateneo de Davao) where I had my dinner.

    This was our 2nd visit, Malagos Garden Resort still never fail to amazed us. Me and my partner are both working from home so every time we feel suffocated this place is the top on our list to go when we want to relax. We really enjoyed the balcony on our room near the river, specially on mornings. Great place to refresh and bond with your family!

    Chill Place to visit
    A chill place to visit for half or whole day since there were so many activities to do. We love the Chocolate Museum and their spa. The fee to pay already includes a meal. Quite far though from city center. So better hire a car to go here.

It was a bust for my family as we wanted to go to the chocolate museum only to tour and to purchase different varieties of chocolate (for giveaways) but they require you to pay for a package which includes a buffet (for lunchtime visits). We ended up buying from the souvenir shop that only had limited items.

It has been a never forgetting stay there. It was more than a vacation day. I am really speechless about such a wonderful place near Davao City. Allow me to mention especially Ms. Princess Anne Yucot for her unique service during lunch time.
