I have mixed feelings about this one. The good: the resort is ok, rooms are clean, prices friendly, you can get good food at affordable prices in their restaurant, staff is friendly, snorkel gear is good and always available and the resort is literally right next to the whale shark interaction center. However, there were a few hickups. We booked...

The place itself is extremely well situated. Beachfront, wonderful place to start your whale expedition as it is beside the center where the tourist embarks! They truly accomodated all our needs. The hotel staff were really nice and friendly.. Always eager to help and suggest where its best to either eat or go. I must say this hotel for what...

This place was a perfect place to unwind and chill after a hectic few weeks. Nothing overly fancy but lovely location and the staff are all very friendly! I would come back and stay here if I return to Donsol.

We stayed here for two nights, just for the whaleshark tour. De tour was great, the resort nothing special, just fine! Rooms are oké, clean. The staff is fine and the food is average. After dinner, there is nothing to do at Dancalan Resort. You need to go to one of the other resorts, with a bar. Don't stay too...

Basic Accomodation, although you have everything you need in just one place. Food is Ok, tried different resorts to see options, but still you would go back here. This would be the best option you have. The Best thing about this place is the People, all you ask, you shall receive. We walked in hoping there would be availability and...

It is only a few minutes walk away from the Donsol Tourist Center so very accessible, especially if you're like us who went to Donsol specifically to see Whale Sharks. The rooms are clean, air-conditioned, and comfortably-sized but nothing special.

I had two Nights in Dancalan Beach resort. The purpose was of course the whale shark interaction, Which litterally departs from next door. The resort is clean, comfortable and Well procedure. The only Thing I missed was better service from the staff. They seemed more Busy with their phones than helping costumers. Sometimes it could be difficult to order something...

Like Ticao Island Resort, this resort was once again arranged by Donsol Eco Tours, and they did a great job choosing it for us. The food was great and the location couldn't have been better-it was right next to the jumping off point for whale shark interactions. Our room was great (with a private bathroom) and there were options for...

ON THE BEACH- that alone is worth the very small 500 peso price tag but along with that you also get an extremely comfy bed, nice clean (small room) and it is right next to the visitor centre. I love the open plan space of this resort with the hammocks and the massage hut, I would stay here again in...
