Offering an outdoor pool and views of the pool, Elysia Beach Resort is a beachfront property in Donsol, a destination known for whale sharks and 34 mi from from Legazpi Airport. A lot of space Clean Beautiful surroundings (beach and pool) Staff was super friendly Cheap Food was good and a lot of options Great restaurant near by on walking distance.
Touristlink Homestay is located in Donsol. The units have a fully equipped kitchen with dining area, a dishwasher, electric tea pot, and a fridge. The lodge has a terrace. A true homestay - Leizl, the owner, is a wonderful host that was more than happy to help in any way with my stay in Donsol. She was extremely friendly and I enjoyed talking with her about the area and traveling in general. A great cook too =) The photos are accurate - at the time, the rooms were basic but you honestly don't need much here and this is a great value for the price. Easy walk to town, 20P / 5 min ride to the area for diving / snorkeling. I look forward to my next visit to Donsol and Tourist Link Homestay.
A 5-minute walk from St Joseph Parish Church, Donsol Aguluz Homestay offers basic rooms providing free Wi-Fi. Free parking facilities and tour arrangement services are available. Lovely quiet and peaceful homestay. Good facility (wifi, confortable bed, hot shower...) Good tour organization don't have to worries or organize anything. Lovely playful, and respectful kids :)
Whale shark interaction was an amazing experience.. we’re lucky that we had a chance to see them on our first trip and not only once but multiple sightings..the BIO was very nice and patient with us..the whole crew of the boat was really helpful.. nice people in donsol
Donsol is a very peaceful and relaxing location in the Philippines. I wanted to go somewhere that didn’t have a large amount of tourist and Donsol was perfect. Scuba diving, swimming with whale sharks in their natural environment, food, all the people I met were extremely friendly and helpful. The opportunity to get out and experience some activities as well some of their culture was great! I highly recommend Donsol and will be planning to go back again very soon!!
Quiet clean town with nice people good choice of accommodations. A good spot for water activities and butanding whale spotting when in season the real way to go nature spotting. It is a walking town, easy to get to places by foot
Donsol is an amazing place to see whalesharks in their natural habitat. Season usually starts in Nov and ends July. There's a slight changes in start of season so going in the middle of the season is your best bet. We arrived late November and the government of Donsol haven't officially open the water for watching. We were disappointed! Luckily we opted to dive in San Miguel and Manta Bowl and we saw 3 beautiful sharks!
This is second trip to donsol, very exited to see whale shark, but goverment will not allow to go out tour. We just stay elysia resort and relax, take a time in swimming pool. Very short stay for scuba diving. Will be back on May.
We went during off season and despite a lot of things being closed it was still a cool and fun place to go:) The people are incredibly friendly, the views are breath taking and there is still plenty of stuff to do:) Highly recommend eating/drinking at BarAcuda. Juliet's cooking is phenomenal (VERY fresh) and she is a very fun host:) If you want to dive go with Bicol Dive Center. Their staff was great and the equipment was well taken care of. Don't be afraid to take tricycles:) or talk with ur drivers. They had great ideas of places to go and things to do:) Go Firefly watching (but make sure the sun has completely set first), diving/snorkeling at San Miguel, diving at Manta Bowl, and visit the Underground River in Jovella.

We had an amazing stay in the touristlink homestay. We even decided to stay longer here than planned. Lizel made the experience Perfect, by caring about her guests as much as possible. You have a great open area to get in touch with the other people, a kitchen where you can find all you want and your own private space. Go to Donsol and stay for at least a night at Lizels homestay :) thank you so much!

Resorts is beautiful. Its just the right size so it doesn't feel crowded. Design of the compound have premium feel. Staff were amazing, always attentive and smiling. Pool is just enough for a quick lap or plunge. Lounge chairs are so comfy! Rooms are just the right size. We were at RM15, at the end, so we also had an amazing view of the ocean.
