The Guesthouse is set in the village and run by a very friendly family. The family went out of their way to ensure we were made to feel welcome. The home cooked meals are great and very reasonably priced. The room or bungalows have a small balcony and are typical but clean and have good bathroom for this style of... More

We had a very pleasant stay (3 nights) here. I find Donsol personally not interesting without Butanding. No swimming on the beach. No good restaurant. No nightlife. But Victoria's GH is a plus point. Victoria's GH is between Donsol town and the Whaleshark center (15 minute walking to each). The owner and staffs are very friendly and helpful. Victoria wrote... More

Victoria and the staff are very friendly and helpful and I really recommend you to try the food there. They will cook a fresh meal specially for you, just... More

Came to see the jawdropping whalesharks and Victoria and her crew gave us a warm welcome and freshest coconuts from the palm trees. If you don't want concrete it's the number one in Donsol. We would go there again.

Victoria and Dilia are amazing. We stayed in cottage 1 which overlooks the beach. Its a 15min walk down the beach to tourist office to arrange whale shark boat and to get better area for swimming. You are right smack in the middle of village life. The cottages are spacious, clean with ensuites and there is a small terrace with... More

Came to the guesthouse based in the great TripAdvisor reviews. The place is exactly how they described. The whole place is really well designed and each bungalow looked great completely sealed with mosquito screens on the windows. The huts have a small porch out the front with somewhere to dry your clothes and a couple of seats and a table.... More

We found Victoria's guesthouse on tripadvisor and decided to give it a go as it had some decent reviews. Finding a nice and clean budget place in the Philippines is pretty difficult therefore we were prepared for an OK-type of place. From the moment we arrived we were shocked how great the place is and how welcoming Victoria and her... More

We stayed at Victoria's the last week of June, in a beautiful, clean, spacious cottage with hot shower and almost right on the beach. Outside are 2 'bahay kubo's' from which you can watch the stunning sunset in a hammock. Victoria and her sister are warm, welcoming and accommodating hosts who made our stay even more perfect and... they cook... More

We stayed at Victoria's at the end of April and really enjoyed our time there. From the moment we arrived, Victoria was extremely welcoming and helpful. We had heard that she makes dinner and breakfast on request and thankfully we ordered on the first night! Victoria is very humble and unaware of how amazing her food is. She makes beautiful... More

Victoria's bungalows are perfectly clean and have attached bathroom. They are located close to the beach, you can watch the sunset while relaxing in a hammock. Breakfast is good and is served whenever you want (you just need to ask the day before if you want an early one). We did not see the whalesharks (two failed attempts) but we... More
