We attended a wedding at this resort and stayed for two nights. The room we were allocated was clean and had excellent a/c but there was a damp musty smell from the bathroom as if there had been a water leak that had been covered up and painted over. We were allocated a different room without any difficulty. The new... More

Upon arriving in the place, the security guard as well as the staff welcomed us warmly and escorted us to our room.I love the view and the Beach is clean,however, I think the swimming pool is not that clean. It seems to have mixed with saltwater or the water in it is saltwater, but that's okay. The room is really... More

Hotel ambiance is nice, big cottages, only Php100 for day use until 6pm while Php120 for night use 6pm onwards.. Rooms comes with low cost rates too.. The... More

Location is perfect. Service is just great. Staff members are always smiling. Price is so reasonable. Haven't had this much enjoyment in a vacation for a long time - stress free - just pure relaxation and fun.

The good things first: the sunrise view is great, the beer is cold, and the pool is okay - but that's about it. When we asked for a sundowner, staff didn't know what it is. We explained that we might like a cocktail or so, and we were offered low class local rum. An extra towel for the pool costs... More

Last October 2013, my wife and I with our niece and nephews had an opportunity to experience a wonderful, pleasant and joyful vacation at Dakong Bato. We actually visited the place before booking to check out the resort and we found it so very nice indeed that we decided to get a room for 3 days. The room is so... More

After 2 hours from Cebu of competing with buses, two wheel motorised transport, jeepnays and tricyles, we finally arrived at the relaxing Dakong Bato Resort where the balcony of our clean and spacious room overlooked the sea in the distance, and the gardens and pools below. Room rates are as given on their webpage, no more than stated, and very... More

The location is great because it is along the road, very easy for the guests to come. We stayed there for one night together with my husband's officates. I was so surprised with their room because it was really big and very spacious which is good for families and barkadahan outings. Their beds are big and staffs are very warm... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the southern part of Cebu specifically at the municipality of Dalaguete in Barangay Coro, guests of Dakong Bato Beach and Leisure Resort are assured of no problem finding it as this has been used as a marker to signify entry into the said municipality. "Dakong Bato" translates to Big Rock in the English language. Once you will see the landmark just before you enter the resort's gate, you will instantly understand why such the name... For it literally is what it means. Dakong Bato and Leisure Resort offers fully-air conditioned rooms each with its own private bathroom, equipped with TV and DVD. Rooms can accommodate 2-10 people depending upon its size, whether for couples, families or barkadas. There are specially-designed rooms for workshops and teambuildings as well. Always out to give the best, quality service, this beach and leisure resort comes with free WiFi access to its guests and visitors. Cottages are available for guests who want to spend the day cooling themselves at the beach or taking a dip at its child-friendly spring water pool. The latter, by the way, comes with a slide and a jacuzzi that's perfect for instant relaxation via massage with warm waters. Manicured lawns adorn the whole resort resulting into a lot of nature green color meant to soothe and calm one's soul. For guests on their teambuilding, an array of activities await in line: For the sports buff, the basketball court and water volleyball at the pool are sure to give you good sweating and exercise. For the more adventurous spirit, there are rubber kayaks and dingy boats for rent and a cave adventure adds a cool twist to the otherwise laid-back atmosphere. Apart from this though, what also makes Dakong Bato Beach and Leisure Resort famous is its association to the Visayan folkore which tells the story of "Maria Cacao", the half immortal who made the huge stone the docking place of her golden ship which carried the cacao she sold to Manila and outside countries. Such is the reason why it is said that even if it has been many centuries already, the marker is said to be "immovable" and still literally growing. ... more   less
