We went to Donsol to do the whale shark interaction and then to Ticao for some diving. Nice place. Quiet and relaxed. Good for chilling out. Good food. Closet place to stay if you want to dive Manta Bowl which I recommend for eager divers. Of course not guaranteed but we did see mantas on about 50% of the dives.... More

The staff picked us up from Donsol to Ticao Island Resort. And upon arriving Ticao, we were surprised by the warm welcome from the staff. They made us feel like right at home. The staff also remember our names and refer to it everytime they see us. The cabana that we stayed in was spacious and we love the sea... More

Although I've returned for a while, I feel its only fair to share my great experience with you about this lovely resort. I've been longing to see Manta again so I did some research on the internet and discovered here. I thought it would be great if I can also get to see Whale Shark in Donsol as well. I've... More

we were travelling to donsol as the last leg of our philippines tour. our plan was to see the whale sharks but before we travelled, Donsol Eco Tour contacted us to inform us that whale shark encounters were on the very low side. we knew that travelling in late June would decrease the chances of encounters and were resigned to...

Our objective was to dive Manta Bowl in Ticao. We made arrangements for a 6 dive package with Ticao Island Resort. I must say the airline, airport and boat transfers were all in order. Even our one night stay in Legaspi with another hotel was all done with no hassle. Ticao Island Resort have very helpful staff, Comfortable and clean... More

Amazing island, superb staff and beach with lots of culture and wildlife. Stayed in budget room for 11 nights with my girlfriend because we couldn't leave. Thanks to the amazing dive staff GL and the excellent instructor Rico. I saw 8 whale sharks at Manta Bowl. Great diving at San Miguel island too. Lots of other things to do too.... More

The meals were of a buffet style, with a variety of different main meals and soup each night. We went diving with Jesse our dive guide, he took us... More

Enjoyed this off the beaten track hotel. After a 3-hour wet boat ride from Donsol the quaint beachfront bungalows were a welcomed sight. The rooms were basic but very functional. Door could be left open during the day to allow steady breeze to flow through. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was spacious with on-demand hot water. Meals were served buffet... More

We stayed for 6 nights in one beach front bungalow in end of January 2012. Family with 2 kids below 10. The bungalow is big enough for a family and has what is needed. A perfect place for combining beach, diving and family holiday. Very friendly, flexible and helpful staff. The dive center run by Rico ,fundiveasia, was perfect for... More
