My girlfriend and I arrived in Donsol out of season (late Nov), so it was a bit quiet and rainy, with no wale sharks in sight. We were a bit disheartened by this, but managed to find this gem of a place and ended up having an awesome time, chilling out on the front porch of our hut, drinking tea...

I stayed In Victoria’s guesthouse twice in February and March and I absolutely loved the stay. Victoria's guesthouse offers budget rooms as well as cottages and it's located behind the town next to the seaside. It’s very close to a firefly watching tours point and about 20 minutes’ walk to the whale sharks center. As it often rains in the...

Victoria and crew made me feel like I was home, and at times, made me miss my family. They are such a warm, friendly, and inviting bunch, and we even got to join in Victoria's birthday dinner! This guesthouse is basic, but is absolutely lovely. I went for the budget room with a common bath, but the private cottages nearer...

Highly recommend staying here if you're visiting for the whale shark experience. We stayed 2 nights, one in a cottage and the other in the budget room, both excellent value for money and I actually preferred the budget room. The staff were all lovely and really go out of their way to help you. There's not much around the as...

Very nice Guest House. Rooms are nice, clean, with a fan for hot days, with hot water for showers (never used since very hot days during our journey). There is a lot of place in the room. We were well advised for Donsol activities. Breakfast and Dinner are available at the Guest House and are cheap. Very cheap Guest House...

I just want to say thank you for your hospitality. Nice room, good value. Will go out of the way to help you. Although its a 20 min walk from Dancalan they will help you get around. Would have liked to stay longer but had to fly back home. Highly recommended.

Victoria is a welcome accommodating host that has a beautiful place with cottages along side the beachside of town. The cottage we got was nice and clean with its own porch. There were also a couple of budget rooms available. Food was good. But a little bit pricey.

Our stay at Victoria's guesthouse was very pleasant. The place is nice and well maintained with a cute little garden at the entrance. The team is adorable, especially Zaldi that took us around the whole trip from on restaurant to another, and helped us to organize the whale sharks snorkeling. We had one of the cottage rooms at 800php per...

Stayed here for 5 nights in the end after a brief illness (not related to this guest house!) Has a fantastic place to relax and recuperate, the family that run it are all lovely and will do anything to help. The 'cottages' are smartly done with attention to details ie they have a brush to keep on top of sand...

I am impressed, were very happy from the staff to the food and service. They did our laundry, ready for the next day.. Also baby sit our baby and prepare the food we requested. We feel part of the family on this small but nice guest house. We will definitely come back.
