Dawal beach resort in Sta Cruz Zambales is overrated. Rooms are pricey. 2500 for a standard room. No cable, no intercom, damage aircon etc.. They will charge you 5 pesos for your drinking glasses and extra charge for your ice tubes. For corporate accounts/ official business transactions, make sure you already have prior arrangements with the hotel cashier. They wont... More

We chose to stay here for 1 night after our camping trip to Potipot Island to make the most of our summer vacation. While communicating with them for a reservation they were typically prompt with their replies via SMS and email, and they were able to assist me with the downpayment process and the booking. When we got to their... More

Dawal is not only a place where you can enjoy beach activities such as swimming, beach volleyball, boating ajd kayaking. One can enjoy the other facilities such as swimming pool, spa, basketball court, and videoke. Rooms are spacious enough. Different cottages and rooms are available to suit one's needs. The resort is big enough to accommodate groups including teambuilding activities.

It is my second time in Dawal Beach Resort. The motivation of me and my group was wanting familiarity than anything else. If anything familiarity helps mitigate the disappointments, but only small ones. Dawal has a parking lot of decent size. I did not bother to count but maybe good enough for 15 – 20 cars before it becomes necessary... More

The room we had was affordable which i think is the villa and the room has its own bathroom with hot & cold shower. Air conditioned but the unit is old. It has also cable channels and a proportion tv for the size of the room. There's a corkage fee on every drink or food you bring inside your room... More

Right. So I'll make this short and will focus to why I am giving them a 1 star. First, their reservation agents is a nightmare! paying dp is such a problem esp when you do it thru online bank transfer! There were 12 of us and they gave us 3 standard rooms (triple sharing) as those are the only ones... More

We stayed for a weekend and I have mixed feelings about the place. A little bit country: Things That Could Be Improved 1. The service was poor but not because of their attitude. I would rather charge that comment to their lack of training. All the staff were well meaning and wanted to serve but they seemed ill equipped and... More

Spent 2 days and 1 night here at Dawal Beach Resort. Here are my thoughts. Travel -Yes, the travel is lengthly around 5-7 hours but other resorts to potipot island are also the same. Accomodation -Their check in starts at 2pm but we arrived 7am. They were kind enough to take care of our bags before we could check in... More
