I was the one in charge in making our DIY itinerary and I chose Giddy's place as our accommodation in Donsol for our 1st day in Bicol. Upon our way, I was nervous when the UV van driver told us that the hotel is close, but I insist to proceed since I already paid the accommodation. When we get there,... More

My husband was unable to come with me on this trip, so I was on my own, which I don't mind at all, but the staff at Giddy's went out of their way to help me and make sure I was comfortable. They arranged dive trips for me at times outside of the usual schedule, they changed my room as... More

Giddy's Place is definitely a pleasant surprise as you come into town and see its depressing character. The staff is well-trained and eager to be helpful. Breakfast is included and nicely prepared. We also had dinner at the hotel and found the menu interesting and the food tasty. If you're going to Donsol to see whale sharks, call ahead. The... More

My friends and I planned a trip to Donsol to see the famous whale sharks before the peak season crowds came in. Unfortunately the 1st and 2nd day of our 3-day vacation had bad weather. Very, very windy with intermittent light showers. But despite the bad weather, we had the time of our lives! Giddy's arranged for us to do... More

We planned to stay at Giddy's for 3 nights, but ended up moving out after a few hours. We picked the place given its high rating on this site, however, the experience turned out to the disappointing. Firstly, the location was quite inconvenient to access the main attraction in town - whaleshark watching. it was 30-40 minute ride away and... More

We ate dinner here once during our stay at donsol. The food was ok. Nothing to rave about. Seemed very expensive compared to other places in donsol. location is in the middle of town - away from the tourism centre.

Had a very comfortable stay at Giddy's recently. Staff were friendly, helpful and very customer oriented. My kids loved their iced apple-green tea, and everything we ordered from the restaurant. They even went out of their way to make an all-cheese pizza (which was very good) for our five-year old. No complaints, great service, food and ambiance. Charming place, highly... More

The rooms are clean, the food is good, the dive center is good (they have good gear and they are good divers), people from the hotel are lovely and helpful. The location is in the middle of Donsol and you can walk around easily. You have the swimming pool to rest and relax. What else can you ask for? We... More
