“good price, fantastic value, good food, the nicest team ever”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

I could not believe it its the nicest bathroom I had till now in the hole Philippines and I am travel about 2 month in PH now.
The room is also nice, I saw some places in towm some cheaper, but no one like this.
Dalia is a angel, if the power goes off, 2 minutes later she comes with torch and candles, she comes with a umbrella if rains, so many little things which makes it the best place ever.
Ask her to cook, it was also the best food experience here, better as many restaurants.
Well Done!!!

Stayed here during our visit to donsol.
Great and affordable place on front of the beach with the humblest and helpful staff.

Cottages were clean and neat.
The guesthouse is also Close to the whale shark center and and the guesthouse trees get surrounded by fireflies at nights.

Once again I have to mention and thank the staff for their help.

The place to be for quiet and pleasent stay in donsol.

Room Tip: Room 1 is in front of the beach.

That’s great! We are humbled by your nice words. The few cottages have been made somewhat private and yet affordable to provide travellers a quiet place to stay and relax after a day of interaction with the whale sharks. The trees and plants around will continue to provide shelter to the fireflies for us to enjoy watching every night.

The owner and staff are typical folks of Donsol who value service and friendship. We will always remember you as friend and look forward of meeting you again.

We are travellers too so we understand you. Always have a safe journey.

Cheers and best regards.

The owner and the staff are very friendly. The cottage is pretty spacious, it has two single beds and you can ask the owner/staff to give you extra mattresses/"banig" if in case your going there in a group. The bathroom is clean and has water heater! yes! There's also a hammock outside where you can just lie down and listen to the sound of the beachwaves. You will definitely have a goodnight sleep in this place coz the location is far from the streets.

For the food, you can ask the owner or staff the available food. They always serve the freshest catch for the day. This place is known for coconut milk based food since coconut trees are everywhere! Another best part in this place is is you can ask the staff to get liquor for you! yipeeeee. just don't forget to tell them ahead so they can stash em for you.

The tourist area is just a five minute walk away from here. The tourist area is where you can rent a pumpboat to look for whalesharks. Definitely a convenient place to stay! looking forward to stay here again! Price is very affordable. It only cost me 800 pesos (USD 18) per night. Just don't forget to bring CASH especially for foreigners. Credit/debit cards are not available anywhere in this village.
