Small basic hotel not far from the whale shark intervention centre. Room consisted of one double and one single. Shower wasn't particularly hot but who wants a hot shower after a day on the beach??? Also had a TV and fridge which was a bonus. Only thing lacking was a smoke alarm and that's why I took one star off....

Absolutely fantastic paradise!! There is nothing you can fault here. The property has been designed to be simple, yet comfortable. "Shoes optional" should be one of their slogans - it's just to casual and welcoming. We were greeted with one of the warmest and loveliest smiles ever beamed, and, despite the late arrival, they kept the restaurant open so we...

We stayed as a family in one of the units which had a double bed and a single bed. The rooms are small, but clean. The resort itself is also well kept and clean. If I had to do it over, I would have booked 2 rooms as the single room was cramped with the kids. The bathroom is quite...

Went to Donsol for friends to catch a glimpse of the butandingso I stayed the whole day in this resort. Staff were courteous and friendly, food was good and the ambiance of the place is great. The owners granted us a discount for an unplanned second night because my friends didn't get to see the butandings on their scheduled trip;...

Clean and well-appointed rooms, great food, lovely pool, beach-side location, and wonderful staff - could not have asked for a better place to stay in Donsol. We were extremely impressed with how well the staff organized and arranged everything for us, and never ceased to provide help when we needed it. Definitely the best place to stay in Donsol.

Arriving after typhoon Nock-Ten's destruction is not exactly what a vacationer would want (i.e. no electricity in Bicol region for almost 2 weeks) but the staff in Elysia has given all their great efforts to make our stay pleasant: Welcome drinks, warm and very comfortable bed, well-kept surroundings. There are other resorts in the area, some are even larger by...

We stayed here for a night on our way back from Ticao Island Resort, and were trying to do a whale shark tour. They hadn't made it up that far yet, so that was a bit disappointing, but not the fault of the hotel. We had seen some over at Ticao while diving anyway, so we had already "ticked the...

We booked Elysia because of the numerous good reviews on TA and were not disappointed. The room was small and very basic but had everything to satisfy a weary traveller's needs. The resort itself also is not very big but is set up with places to relax like hammocks, beach beds and the like - all nice touches. All rooms...

I enjoyed staying at the Elysian hotel. The rooms were nice, but the bathrooms could be improved. Overall, the food was good and the staff were very nice and attentive. Just walking on the beach was relaxing. They have a pool as well in case you're not beach friendly.

It was the best place we stayed during our whole Phillipines trip. The people ware so friendly and helpful, food delicious, rooms and pool nice and clean - there was just nothing to complain, just to relax and enjoy. The resort is in walking distance to the whale shark encounter and easy to go for massages, dives, the butterflies or...
