Sierra Madre resort and convention center

hanging foot bridge leading from the mini golf course to the viewing deck

The Sierra Madre resort and convention center is right along the National Highway in Tanay. We spent a few hours there last year as part of a day-long road trip to celebrate my younger daughter’s birthday. We brought our own picnic lunch and rented some tables and chairs on the veranda overlooking the mini golf course. The cool air, the spectacular view of the Sierra Madre mountain range… wow, if all you’ve seen of the Philippines is Metro Manila, you’d think you weren’t in the Philippines at all.

The hanging foot bridge in the photo, located at the edge of the mini golf course, leads to the viewing deck.

The viewing deck–that’s my friend Mabel, her daughter Jill and Jill’s yaya.

If you want to visit the Sierra Madre resort and convention center, I’d advise you to bring your own food. We did but we were tempted by the menu and we decided to order lechon kawali. Bad mistake. The lechon kawali was hard as rock.

    HI,

    Do you have other photos that you can share? I was able to get their number and contacted them, it seems that the place is really good based on their description but its hard to visualize everything. Photos taken recently may be a big help for me to consider getting the place for our department kick off.

    thanks.

        • krystyn joy

          We were there this month and it was a welcome respite from Manila’s heat. And so near. They say it is 3rd summer capital of the Phils. We are coming back for my mom’s seminar while my sister and cousins will try going up the prayer mountain and the natural swimming pools and horsebackriding. How do I upload pics I got from there?

    Sierra madre resort is the place to be for people who love nature. we, together wid my rider buddies, actually frequents this place every sunday when we ride our bikes. We never get tired of going to this place for it serve as our sanctuary after an enjoyable, tiring motorcycle ride.

      we’ve been to Sierra Madre 3 yrs ago… the place is really good, but the food they cater is really disappointing. but if you want to see a perfect sky view,I suggest, wake up as early as 5:00 am, the clouds is almost like a cotton balls… PERFECT!!!! no exageration, akala ko sa china paintings or china mountain province lng may ganon view.. it’s really worth waking up early

  • mari

    we tried calling them yesterday, and no one was answering the phone. when we got there a while ago, we knew why. we were there 5 hours ago. the place is a mess. there was no receptionist, no security guard, and the rooms look like they’re straight out of a horror film. if you’re planning to sleep there, don’t. the place is only good for day trips.

            Sierra madre resort and convention center is located at the peak of the mountain. It is overlooking the sierra madre mountain and if you’ve been to Banaue Rice terraces and have checked in at Banaue Hotel, halos parehas ang view. Sobra lamig sa early evening and early morning. Napakanipis ng hangin at talagang mararamdaman mo at ang amoy ay napakabango. Amoy nature talaga.I’ve been to diffrerent countries and I was surprised to see and experienced na mayroon pa palang magandang lugar dito sa Pilipinas and sobra malapit sa metro manila.We went there only yesterday and we were 32 .we reserved the new logcabins. The rates are very affordable and new.My nephew was check in were Sarah Geronimo stayed.Its a favorite place especially for shooting films and teleserye. I heard the teleserye Mara clara is there 2x a week. Sayang we only stayed there overnight. I am planning to bring my Proser/Medical City staff this May. It is only 1 1/2-2 hours drive from Quezon City. Anyday, my son who took pictures of the place will post it sa internet. If you really want peace,quiet, and nature. Sierra Madre Resort is the best place to go. Pwede rin yung lugar for team building and seminars. Don’t worry about the food, masarap ang cook nila especially he bulalo and pinakbet. Available na pala ung zipline nila
            Again it was a nice respite from heavy skeds and busy life.If you have questions to ask I can always answer it.

          • marites

            Is the swimming pool hot there?

          • Chinggay

            the water of the swimming pool is quite okay during the day.But don’t ever dare to swim at night coz it’s too cold. Masyado malamig sa gabi.Ang sarap ng hangin sa gabi and early morning.But swimming during daytime is quite fine. Masarap maligo kasi hindi mainit ang tubig.But there are alot of things to do during the day aside from swimming.

  • http://none Jumper

    My family and I stayed at Sierra Madre Resort last Friday. It’s an hour and an hour and a half drive from SM Masinag. It’s at KM 56 of Marcos Highway. The place is good for nature lovers. Full of greens and mountains. The room was quite old but I would say fair enough because it was clean.

    There are 3 pools here. One near the cabin lodges and the other 2 down the trail. People usually swim by the cabin lodges because the other pools are 2 far.

    My only negative feedback here is their security. I’m not sure if they have security guards. The people there don’t seem to be dangerous but still better safe than sorry.

    Overall, it is a place to visit. No traffic, no toll fees…cool mountain breeze, a picturesque drive, and an awesome view.

    I’ve been here many times.. the place is not hard to find, just keep going straight from marcos hi-way to the antipolo direction. When you leave civilization behind and you’re in the mountains just observe your left hand side and you should see this there.. It’s a big place and you won’t miss it.
