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

Nestled amongst a small village Victoria's provides the perfect retreat to allow you to enjoy the ambience of a seaside town that still oozes local charm... More

We stayed here fot two nights whole trying to spot buntandings. The cottages were new and very clean. The family who had the place were lovely and took great care of us. They even rushed out to meet us with umbrellas when we got home during a rain shower. You should stay here!

We stayed at Victoria's for almost a week, and did not want to leave! The place is almost brand new with little bungalows pretty much on the beach that are clean and all have hot water. Victoria is amazingly friendly and knows everything about Donsol. She made us feel right at home and cooks amazing Filipino food. Defenatelly recommended!

I traveled with my sister and my friend to Donsol in February 2013. But the entire experience starts with e-mail communication with accommodation options. Victoria's Guesthouse was very responsive and answered all our questions promptly. They were very helpful right at the beginning. When some friends decided that they were not joining this trip, we had to modify our booking... More

I was happy to walk into a bungalow on the beach with a warm water shower (which I hadn't had in weeks) and two twin beds. The bungalows themselves were really nice. The Guesthouse doesn't have a restaurant, but the workers and owners were really nice. They picked coconuts for us, and even gave us a free dinner one night.... More

The 4 of us came to Donsol out of season, so we were the only tourists in town. Nevertheless, the lady at Victoria's called the local (closed) dive center to organize a boat just for us, so that on the next day we could go diving. And it was great. The rooms are simple and clean, the hammocs on the... More
