Stayed here for 5 nights in the end after a brief illness (not related to this guest house!) Has a fantastic place to relax and recuperate, the family that run it are all lovely and will do anything to help. The 'cottages' are smartly done with attention to details ie they have a brush to keep on top of sand... More

I am impressed, were very happy from the staff to the food and service. They did our laundry, ready for the next day.. Also baby sit our baby and prepare the food we requested. We feel part of the family on this small but nice guest house. We will definitely come back.

After Manila this place was like heaven on earth. Just a couple of kilometres out of the centre of Donsol, by the beach, is Victoria's guesthouse. Either walk after arriving with mini-van or take a tricycle for about 40 peso (its paid per person as with most transportation in the Philippines. They fill up the vehicle and go. Tricycle fits...

I have stayed in Victoria's guest house for 5 days, but really wish I had more time there. Victoria, Malu and the rest of their family are the nicest people! I traveled by myself and they made sure I was never alone :). And the home made food was sooo delish!! And super cheap too. I've traveled around Philippines after... More

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

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
