We loved this resort! It was like paradise. The staff were amazing, the room were lovely with nice cool aircon. You're right on the beach which have comfy deck chairs or hammocks to lay on. If you don't fancy the see you can go in the pool which is refreshing. The food is great! Nice and quiet resort. Short walk... More

The room was great. The staff were very nice and accommodating, and rest assured that even at night you're still safe because of the security guards in the resort. It's a bit expensive but it's worth it. We were actually the only guest by that time and it's like we rented the whole resort for just the two of us.I... More

Totally love this resort! Very accommodating staff, and the room was nice and clean. Had some much needed quiet time, and enjoyed the pool and the beach as well. Gorgeous sunset too. Sadly we came at the end of the whale shark season, so we were not able to experience the famous whale shark interaction. We will definitely come back... More

I loved Elysia Beach Resort. The staff couldn't have been nicer. The location was perfect for getting to the whale shark center. We even had our own whale shark daily built on the sand by the staff. A lovely touch. The food was good as well as the service. There was someone there to organize whatever you wanted to do... More

This is a good choice to stay in this hotel. There are only 15 rooms. The room is clean. The swimming pool is not big but enough. It is because most of the hotel guests won't stay in the hotel in day time. There is only one restaurant in this hotel. Not many choice but the dishes are delicious with... More

The Elysia resort was our second accomodation after Manila and was a beautiful retreat. Probably the best place to stay in Donsol. There's no wifi in the room but in the restaurant / beach area. The food was great (try the grilled fish with olive oil and garlic) and safe. They only use clean water for ice cubes and for... More

Elysia Hotel is a beautiful little hotel (15 reviews) a 5 minute walk away from the whale shark watching centre. They have a lovely restaurant with extremely reasonable food and drinks prices, a beautiful pool and wonderful staff. They also work with a woman (Wecee) who helps you organise your trips, and her services are exceptional as well. The rooms... More

Elysia Beach Resort provided a relaxing place to stay when we visited Donsol to swim with the Butanding (Whale Sharks). The rooms were small but clean, the staff very pleasant and accommodating. They even found the hair straightener we accidentally left behind and ran after our taxi to make sure we got it. Pretty honest staff considering the item was... More

Elysia is a very relaxing place for someone looking for real R&R. Close to the whaleshark interaction center, has connections to tour agents who will arrange the type of activities you want during your donsol stay. Beachfront location is very nice. Food is good.
