Good for family”

We enjoyed our stay a lot! My daughter loved her pony ride experience. The family villa is very spacious, its really for a family. The resort is well maintained despite the downturn in the tourism industry. Physical distancing wont be a problem because at 7.5hectares in area and with each villa well separated, Im sure you will find your own private place and space during the entire length of your stay.

Dear Kathy, Thank you so much for giving us a 10, and am sure Andrea and the rest of the team will be very excited to learn about your review. We also noted that you enjoyed the facilities and the pony ride. In the meantime, in behalf of my team, may we look forward to welcome you back at Donatela Resort & Sanctuary. Kindest regards. Alan

Excellent!!”

We had a blast during our 5 days at Donatella resort. A wonderful villa very nicely decorated, with large master bedroom and room for the kids. The swimming pool is huge, kids loved it! The resort also organised for us multiple great activities, like a day to visit all countryside in Bohol (tarsier, river cruise, python and butterflies farm), a day at Alina beach just nearby and accessible with their free shuttle in 5 mins, and 1 day island hopping around Balicasag with dolphin watching, plus pony ride in the hotel. Plenty of things to do and see, the hotel restaurant is very good as well and staff are super nice and friendly.

We were the only ones in the resort at that time. Disappointed that only about 50% of the facilities is operational as a result of the pandemic, but the attentiveness and customer service made the stay enjoyable and hassle-free. Kudos to the entire staff!
