Stayed here for 3 days with the family. The staff were very warm and accommodating especially since we had 2 kids with us. The rooms which faced the pool area were comfortable and clean. Food was great and reasonably priced. We especially loved the pansit which we ordered thrice. The beach was clean and well-tended though we were not able...

We stayed 2 nights in Elysia, the perfect time to relax after a long trip from Manila. The staff was very friendly, particularly with our 6yo son Rocco, who says he enjoyed this place the most among everywhere we visited in Philippines. Nice swimming pool and beautiful sunsets at the beach. Beach is not great to swim, but mainly you...

The place is perfect if you wanted to relax and unwind because it's not crowded. All of the staff are very accomodating and nice, the food is superb and very affordable. Rooms are clean and very comfy. Even though weren't able to enjoy the beach bec of the jellyfish, we will definitely go back. 😊

Went to Donsol to snorkel with the whale sharks and the Elysia Resort was very handy to the snorkeling operations. Transport was to and from was arranged and went smoothly. The rooms were spacious with en suite and all rooms are close to the pool. The staff are very friendly and polite. The restaurant in the grounds has beautiful food...

My partner and I came to Donsol in the hopes of swimming with the Whale Sharks, and we are so glad we chose Elysia Beach Resort for our accommodation. The rooms are clean, the pool is gorgeous, and there's an array of hammocks, huts, and chairs along the beachfront to relax and unwind while you watch the sunset. The service...

Small but nice bungalow style rooms in a tropical garden. Clean swimming pool. Restaurant with very good food and reasonably fast service. The beach is facing westwards and you can enjoy amazing sunset. The resort is in a quiet location at walking distance from the whale shark center. To go to the village of Donsol, some transportation, easily arranged at...

Stayed three nights here recently with my wife and loved it. Great location - easily walkable to the Whale Shark Interaction Center and downtown. Superb staff that is always willing to help with bookings and travel arrangements. And the layout of the rooms around the central pool is ideal. We ate in the restaurant every day and loved the little...

We stayed there 3 nights and it was just great. Beautiful place, small quiet resort, kind crew and great food in the restaurant. The best resort in Donsol in our opinion. Moreover you can arrange all kind of activities from there.

Small basic hotel not far from the whale shark intervention centre. Room consisted of one double and one single. Shower wasn't particularly hot but who wants a hot shower after a day on the beach??? Also had a TV and fridge which was a bonus. Only thing lacking was a smoke alarm and that's why I took one star off....
