Main attraction would be the Whale Shark interaction offerings at the visitor centre about 3 minutes away from AGM by three wheeler bike. You can also choose to do island hopping if you are tired of going on the whale shark `hunt' which may come to naught. The next best thing to do would be to visit the fire flies.... More

Thank you very much for the review. WiFi at AGM is only available in public areas so as with all the hotels in the resort village. The Internet Service Providers have yet to upgrade their facilities so that internet connectivity would be available everywhere for the convenience of tourists and visitors.

Checked into AGM after coming into town to experience the whale sharks. We only planned on spending one night and leaving after seeing the whales. We then extended our stay to 4 nights because the service was so great. The pool was refreshing and clean. The food was excellent and I have to recommend the sizzling squid. Bought some fresh...

Went to Donsol to see the whale sharks. Chose the AGM Beachfront Resort after reading reports on Trip Advisor. Hotel was good for the area and I would stay here again.

Thank you for your comments, we appreciate it. The tourist village of Dancalan, where most of the resorts/hotels are situated including the Donsol Tourism Center and boat terminal, is a strip of land about 800 meters to 2.5 km from the town proper. Broadband internet connection has not yet been extended to the village from the town. The “plug in... More

We offer our sincerest apology for the inconvenience caused by the music from the village center about 300 meters away where locals held a public dance every Friday in anticipation of the village fiesta. This activity commences from the last week of January until the village fiesta on 19 March to raise funds for community projects by the youth sector.... More

My husband, daughter and I decided to celebrate the New Year in Donsol. Our main reason for going is to be able to swim with the whale sharks. AGM is a budget friendly B&B.
