This hotel is not my first choice. If you're looking for a place to crash for cheap for one night you might be okay. But anything more than that I don't recommend. There's beach access from the resort but the beach is full of litter and garbage! Which completely ruins the beach experience. There's no wifi in the rooms only... More

Thought twas for 3-4 hrs travel, but it took us 8-9 hours just to get there from Bulacan. All of us were very tired. We had dinner at their restaurant. Don't expect too much..Food is not that good. All of us were disappointed. They let the carabao swim at their beacfront. .Fun started when we got to Potipot island, which... More

We had an overnight stay at Dawal on April 10 to 11 in order to celebrate the birthday of our mother. We occupied M5 room wherein you will feel like you're at home due to complete facilities, from room to kitchen to terrace. However, the AC temperature was disappointing as it blows poorly that you cannot feel you have AC... More

Avoid this place like the plague!!! We stayed for 2 nights at the "Penthouse" and it is far from it. I'm all for basic accomodations; room, bed, shower but we lost electricity and water. While all other cottages got electricity powered by a portable generator, the entire 3rd floor was without power for about an hour on our first night.... More

Stayed here twice already, April 2012 and November 2014. Nice place, competitive rate. Very near to Potipot Island. They can arrange your transportation back and forth to Potipot. They have newly constructed cabanas and rooms. They are accommodating.

Pros: Good food, live band. The resort is just minutes away from Potipot Island. They also have a karaoke room, kayaking, and island tour. Cons: We got the poolside room which had a lot of annoying insects when you go out. We also couldn't last long in their pool because of the chlorine in the water. Their restaurant isn't open...

all is good enough and worth the money. The restaurant serves really good food for less money,the staff is nice and helpful. The beach in front clean,not busy at all. In Candelaria is not much to do so you should feel comfortable where you stay _- Dawal is a good place for!

This resort is hidden and is next to a beautiful beach. We stayed in an large oceanfront room which had a nice porch. AC good. The downside was a refrigerator without a freezer door freezing all my food, menu items not available, no curtain in the front window, and very loud karaoke permiating the resort. The pool was being reconstructed... More

Stayed here after a 7 hour travel from Baguio to visit potipot island the day after. We took a poolside room. The room was average but the restaurant food and service were awesome. I could easily give them a 5 star review just for the food and service but I am gonna deduct 2 stars from them because of the... More
