We were very happy with this resort in what is a very poor community. Truly an amazing township and people who are very friendly. What was so unique about the resort was the attitude of the staff, they were not intrusive and waited your request rather than push to appease guests. Eg they weren't after the big sell but were...

It is a small resort (probably less than 20 rooms) with clean, modern design that I find very appealing. I believe it is the most expensive resort in the area. PROs: - Check-in was a breeze and the welcome drinks were appreciated after the one hour drive from Legazpi -Check out was likewise hassle free. -Staff were consistently friendly and... More

Elysia Beach Resort was fantastic. You will not regret choosing this hotel. The staff were the best we met in the Philippines. The drinks were great. The food was great. It is in walking distance to the whale shark centre. This resort was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. We can't say enough good things. Donsol does not have an ATM, but... More

Simple beautiful resort, nice place..we loved our stay here in Elysia. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Amazing sunset view! Staff here are friendly we expected it because we know that filipino is very friendly, and we are right they're truly kind and friendly.. Food is delicious. We want to stay longer but we had only couple of days so we... More

This is a small resort, rustic and with basic rooms but totally in keeping with the area, maintaining that small, friendly, local welcome. You have everything that you need and nothing more. But what do visitors come to Donsol for other than to see the Whale Sharks and the Fireflies - so there is no need for a Sheraton or... More

small resort, beautiful location, friendly staff. Restaurant is okay for a few days. Don't forget to visit Pangpang and Donsul, two lovely villages, Pangpang just a 10 minute walk from Elysia. Room is fine, with fantastic view (#1). Swimming with the Whalesharks is not scary at all, a wonderful experience.

Came to Donsol to swim with whale sharks. Elysia Beach Resort couldn't have been more perfect for my stay! The resort is a very short walk from the whale shark interaction centre which was very convenient. For transport elsewhere though it is very easy to step outside and get a tricycle or the reception staff are more than helpful at... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in February and I could have stayed longer. It was peaceful and serene. The staff were so lovely and attentive and the area is just lovely. There are only 15 rooms so it is lovely and quiet. Thanks for a great stay!

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
