 I'll be honest the place is expensive, well its a resorts what do I expect but it is beautiful but not the food. Well, we booked a room that is included the breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you are visiting the Pearl Farm beach resort in Davao if I were you don't go for a buffet, the food is not good as we're expected. We pay too much but the quality of food  is below our expectation. If you order the food not in the buffet you can expect the food is high standard but of course you pay for the quality of food.

I visited last year in Davao City and  ring my friend who are currently working there. This is only good thing I like my friends in Philippines, I don't need to set up an appointment to visit them. I can invite easily without any problem. To cut my story  short I talk to "L" and told I was in the area  and wants to see her. She asked me we're I was staying and she will pick up me in their car,and we both decided to dine in Jack's Ridge restaurants. It was a short time for both of us. How many years we never see each other, lots of story to tell, and you know GIRLS... We enjoy the food the view, the sunset and of course taking pictures. You know what the band will go in your table and will sing and you can request a song you want. You just give them a tip after they're done. The only problem going to Jack's ridge is your transportation. It's hard to get taxi and its traffic especially where I was staying during the time.Lucky me she pick up and send in our hotel after our dinner in Jack's Ridge.
Anyway I want to say THANK YOU to " L" for her help arranging our transportation going  to my hometown.

How to go there: You can take  a taxi, rent a multi cab.
