I went here before lunch one day. I opted for a mango shake and it came out looking beautiful and i was quite happy, except they had used underripe fruit so it was quite sour (not what you want in mango shake). But then i always take mine with no sugar so maybe that's my fault. Seems like a lovely... More

The best part of the trip were the whale sharks no question. The next best and I hope that you get to meet Marion. She is the most pleasing lady I could ever hope to have found as a resort manager. Her and the staff were so nice, never had such wonderful staff ever come close to these kind people.... More

Very quiet beach resort about 1hr15mins from Legazpi. As this is marketed as a high end resort in Donsol, with a price tag (for the area) to match, these are my thoughts: The pros *A short 5minute walk to BARacuda (THE place to eat in Donsol) & the tourist information center (for whale sharks). Also close to the fire flies... More

We stayed in this quaint hotel for 2 days and were greeted warmly by the staff on a daily basis. I wish they can expand their menu to showcase more of the Philippines or Legazpi's delicacies. Nonetheless, everything we tried on the menu from the Shrimp sinigang, bicol ex, Sting Ray in gata, baked fish with mash, BBQ squid to... More

My partner and I traveled to Donsol, to of course, swim with the whale sharks, but that only takes up 4 hours of your day so make sure you stay somewhere where you can relax. We stayed 4 nights at Elysia and was happy with our choice. The staff were incredibly lovely and setting is beautiful. The rooms are fine,... More

My wife and I stayed at Elysia for two nights on a trip to interact with the whale sharks. This hotel was located a short walk from the whale shark tourist center. We found the hotel to be good value but rated it "very good" because of: limited food selection; clean room (but mosquitoes somehow seemed to sneak in), and... More

This resort has a nice pool and is on a clean bit of beach. The staff are great but the food at the restaurant is kind of average, still edible though. One of the rooms we had had a bit of a distinct mouldy smell and the double beds aren't quite that, but these were not major problems.

We stayed here for several days while attempting to see the whale sharks. The hotel is small, and private. The grounds, and pool area are beautiful. The service of the staff is impeccable. Each individual was very polite, and friendly. We ate most of our meals at the hotel, as there were not a lot of other options around, and... More

I stayed there for 3 nights. The hotel is very nice, it is small but has all of the things you could ask for. The restaurant/bar had a great selection of food and drinks to go with the awesome sea side view.
