We travelled to Donsol with 12 family members (local Filipinos and Filipino-Americans) and were very impressed with this resort.
Resort: The resort only has 15 rooms which was a great size. All the rooms were organized around the pool. It was a very intimate set up and a great way to meet the other guests. The rooms were very simple, clean and peaceful. The all white decor complemented the natural beach setting. The rooms had warm water in the shower, mini fridge and TV (although we didn't use ours). Our room also had a view of the beach.
Staff: The staff was very friendly, helpful and attentive.
Restaurant: All the meals we ate there were delicious - both Filipino and non-Filipino dishes. There are not many options nearby for restaurants and if you are only here for a few days, I suggest just eating at this restaurant. The menu is not big so if you are there for more than a week, you may start getting tired of the options. But everything was delicious and reasonably priced. (Local Filipinos will argue that the breakfast is expensive compared to what you pay for a similar breakfast in Manila)
I would suggest stopping by a grocery store on your way from the airport and buying drinks/snacks for your room.
