Beautifully maintained. Gorgeous pool. Five minute walk to whale shark visitor center/pier. Excellent service. Nice sunset and beach. Good value for the money.
Rooms could use more furnishings (tables, chairs, hangers). Food is average, but reasonably priced and convenient. Recommend taking a tricycle into town to Giddy's place for Bicol espres and Laing at dinner.
Donsol is a sleepy village with few quality places to stay, though they are frantically building more. I must have seen 5 new resorts being built during my stay. Overall the Elysia Beach Resort is the best.
BTW, if you want to see the whale sharks, make sure to go during peak season (March-May). They are few or none during the rest of the season, including my Nov visit.
