The hotel itself is one of the more pleasant places that I stayed in on my trip. It was quiet, had a beautiful pool with two bars and shaded lounging areas. The restaurant has a very large menu. There were 8 of us, and over the two days we were staying here, there wasn't a bad meal between us. The...

Since I have no phone, I rented a motorbike in Dumaguete to check out dive resorts “around” Dauin. I actually wanted to see them, NOT pictures on the internet. I searched like 4-5 of them & El Dorado fit my price scheme. I'm in the standard room/half board (breakfast & dinner), at PHP 2650/day plus diving costs. They accept credit...

Staff is incomparable. They were all cordial and happy. Easy to talk to and coordinate. They have a good set up near the beach and a cool place to hang out and chill. Caters to a good crowd of foreigners, maybe that is why their food is abit tapered or tweaked for that market. We were served lunch. It was...

El Dorado is our go-to place to enjoy a real relaxing vacation. My family and I have been coming back here since the past 10 years. Suprisingly, every time we visit, there is always something new. The resort continues to improve and expand after each visit. One thing that hasn't changed over the years is their amazing food. Despite having...

We spent a week here on the advice of some friends, the place is clean and you can swim on the beach out the front of the restaurant. The sand is volcanic so it gets very warm during the day. Buying food and drinks from this resort is expensive and I would recommend staying for a few days only and...
