A charming place to stay. The staff here are kind and helpful and the grounds lead right down to the beach. The gardens the small chalets are set in are lush and green and obviously well cared for. It's also very good value.

This place is like a resort without the over-inflated prices. The huts are charming, the hosts take care of your every need and are so friendly, the food is delicious and the gardens and hammocks by the beach are an added touch to this fantastic stay.

We came in late with no reservation, luckily there was a room available for one night. Great cottage with everything you need. Fortunately we could still have diner and it was really good. At checkout the next day we were surprised to see that diner-prices were very affordable. Noah is a great host and helped with everything. We will surely...

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.
