Elysia is a small resort, just 15 (?) rooms all around the pool. Although the rooms are basic, the required amenities are there: a small fridge, small bathroom, tv with some movies on a USB (never seen this before, but definitely a tip for other hotels). Staff is super friendly. Every time you would walk in the restaurant the cheerful... More

There are not words enough to describe how great our stay at Elysia was. We had booked for 7 nights but ended up staying an extra 3 just because it was so amazing. From the minute you arrive the staff are incredible - so friendly and helpful - they learn your names very quickly and always greet you when they... More

Understanding that Donsol was relatively off the beaten path, our group didn't have high expectations coming in for our accommodations. However, after staying in Elysia for the weekend swimming with the butanding or whalesharks, we realized that it's exactly what we needed, no more no less. Villas were nicely maintained and spotless, beachfront hammocks and pool was perfect for relaxing... More

Staff are the hero at this place, they are so amazing, helpful, brilliant at what they do. I felt like I was part of their family, so friendly. They will organize anything for you, trips to fireflies, tours to see the whale shark, just amazing first class service. They can make you amazing cocktails especially the Coco mojito, server to...

I booked the hotel 3 weeks ahead. I paid in full and even got a confirmation. Two days before checking in, I was informed that they don't have any rooms for me. It left me scrambling to find another hotel during peak season.

We stayed 2 nights in February 2015. The setting of the resort is visually stunning with beautiful views over the ocean. The restaurant is open sided and has the same beautiful views as do the well placed sun chairs and cabanas. There is no concrete sea wall to interfere with the view. The restaurant food was tasty and reasonably priced... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights to see the whale sharks. Nice clean resort, quite basic rooms. Right on the beach and short walk to the main tourist centre where we left for the whale shark tour. Didn't go into the centre of town, but would definitely need to catch a scooter cart there (took a scooter to see... More

Just spent three nights here with my husband on our honeymoon. The location is fantastic, set on a quiet beach only 5 mins walk from the whale shark interaction centre where the boats leave from to take you on your whale shark swims. The food in the restaurant is fantastic, especially the Philippine dishes and the seafood as well as... More

Beautiful place, make sure you get the table on the beach with the bamboo roof and that you have your feet in the sand. Service is excellent. Order seafood for sure you won't be disappointed! Gorgeous night guaranteed!
