I may have rated this place higher if it had been business as normal. Located just north of town with other resorts along the beachfront. It had a sign saying temporarily closed (as were 3 other resorts) due to virus concerns. They honoured my booking as I had booked September last year and prepaid. There were only 3 other guests but they checked out the following day. I ended up cutting my stay short as I decided to try and get to Manila airport to leave the country before they closed their borders. My delux room had clean linens. A long bench to place clothes etc. The aircon worked well. TV not available since the typhoon last December. Things work slowly. The bathroom was a wet room. Hot water shower with okay pressure. The restaurant was open but after the other guests left they closed not bothering to inform me. What food I did have was okay.

I stayed here 3 nights and had the best time. I actually felt like staying longer because of the place and the excellent service. It is great place to rest and chill. It is very peaceful, clean and close to the whale shark center and the dive centers. Both are literally next door. The rooms are spacious and the matresses very good. The restaurant serves really good food and provides Wifi connection. The staff was the best. Always very polite, helpfull and with a smile. Anything you need or want, the will help you to get it. Ah, and do get a massage there, the are really really good.

I had a pleasant experience here , the vibes was very positive as everyone was smiling and they were very accommodating it was raining most of the day so they provided us with umbrellas enough for our team and for every guest who needs them. Our team was on assignment to document some birds and everyone was happy and not stressed by anything, they also opened some coconut for us which we got elsewhere, the rooms were not fancy but very cozy and comfortable

We went to Donsol in the off season (August). Most of Donsol was asleep at the time so the tricycle driver took us (blindly) to Dancalan Beach, as it was one of the few open. We said "what the heck" and 1500 pesos later we had a nice room with A/C. With only 2-3 rooms rented at the time, we had the place virtually to ourselves. The owner (Lorraine) was most accommodating (a little over the top conversationally) and her knowledge of Bicol food was strong (though the restaurant was closed at the time). The beach is "good" especially after they cleaned up the tide-wash debris. We went there to see the area and scope it out for further visits. I will stay here again (we stayed 2 nights this time), and we will most likely dive at the dive center across from the resort.

Room Tip: We had room #7, and think those set back with A/C are best.

The place was nice and clean right next to the beach. we had an ensuit room for 900 pesos, totally worth it. The food at this place is also quite alright and since is right next to the whale shark experience you dont have to worry about transport to it and can jump from the bed to the boat. They rent snorkeling gear, they have a free swimming pool, smoking areas and the beach is also really nice. Would have stayed longer if had known how relaxing this place is.
