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

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

Very nice people there and helped us on a lot of things. The view of sunset from the resort is absolutely amazing experience - see... 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.
