Great resort to see the whale sharks”
Dancalan Beach Resort is a great base to see the whale sharks, situated right next to the visitor center and registration offfice. Superfriendly staff, very nice bungalows and a good and very affordable restaurant made our stay there very pleasant. One detail deserves special highlighting: the lawn is just incredibly soft and cushy - applause to the gardener!

Local feel”
VERY difficult to contact, but found my own way to Donsol - to owner's chagrin on my arrival, she said she'd replied... still waiting for that! Dancalan is a pleasant place to stay; relaxed and peaceful. It's the alt-hippy choice of three big resorts right on the beach. The Vitton resort (just one over, past the Whale Shark Centre) has a pool, another restaurant and a bar, if you feel like a change. The staff are very nice, although I was always reminding them to add food/drinks they'd forgotten to put on my bill :) Actually, I kind of regretted that at the end, when I decided to leave a little earlier to check out Legazpi, and the owner wouldn't countenance any kind of refund.... C'est la vie. The whale sharks were amazing and totally worth it.

Acceptable”
It was off season. Habagat. So the beach front was dirty. Not much facilities available. No food to buy nearby or within the hotel itself. The staff were nice. Our stay was plagued with blackouts (power interruption).

Enjoyed even at low season”
Although we came during low season of whale sharks (Butanding) we still got to enjoy snorkeling as suggested by resort owner. Our rooms were clean and spacious. Had hot shower and very helpful staff. Our booking did not include any meal but the resort owner went out of her way to assist us in our pre-packed food. Wifi is available only at the dinning area but signal was weak. We would go back again especially during whale sharks season which they from March till May.
