We stayed here for two nights, just for the whaleshark tour. De tour was great, the resort nothing special, just fine! Rooms are oké, clean. The staff is fine and the food is average. After dinner, there is nothing to do at Dancalan Resort. You need to go to one of the other resorts, with a bar. Don't stay too...

Basic Accomodation, although you have everything you need in just one place. Food is Ok, tried different resorts to see options, but still you would go back here. This would be the best option you have. The Best thing about this place is the People, all you ask, you shall receive. We walked in hoping there would be availability and...

It is only a few minutes walk away from the Donsol Tourist Center so very accessible, especially if you're like us who went to Donsol specifically to see Whale Sharks. The rooms are clean, air-conditioned, and comfortably-sized but nothing special.

I had two Nights in Dancalan Beach resort. The purpose was of course the whale shark interaction, Which litterally departs from next door. The resort is clean, comfortable and Well procedure. The only Thing I missed was better service from the staff. They seemed more Busy with their phones than helping costumers. Sometimes it could be difficult to order something...

Like Ticao Island Resort, this resort was once again arranged by Donsol Eco Tours, and they did a great job choosing it for us. The food was great and the location couldn't have been better-it was right next to the jumping off point for whale shark interactions. Our room was great (with a private bathroom) and there were options for...

ON THE BEACH- that alone is worth the very small 500 peso price tag but along with that you also get an extremely comfy bed, nice clean (small room) and it is right next to the visitor centre. I love the open plan space of this resort with the hammocks and the massage hut, I would stay here again in...

Overall the place was nice and tidy. Stuff was friendly, but they lack service attitude. Diane at the bar was great! But in the restaurant they didn't offer desert or come and check if your okay. Check you had to allways ask. Location beside whaleshark place is great, but for sleep you need earplugs because the road and animals.

What a great time I had a Dancalan Beach Resort! Conveniently located right next to the BIO station ( the departure place for whale shark citings), it's bungalows are not even 50 meters from the beach. The superior rooms are spacious, and while a bit "rustic", you have everything that you need. The food at the restaurant is delicious and...

This resort is just beside the whaleshark centre. The place is quiet and no vendors that will pester you to buy this and that. You can bring your own food from the market, and the resort will lend their bbq grill (if you need it). Just do not forget to bring charcoals with you. The beach is clean, just wear...
