Caught in its last throes of death, this resort may not last much longer. Tired rooms in crumbling shacks don't make for a very welcome sight. Yes, it's cheap, but there's no security or services. Give this place a miss.

Stayed here only for a few nights as a couple, but have eaten here and had some drinks here many times. The prices are very very good compared to other spots in the area. The food is nice, although perhaps a bit faster would be nice. But not too important as you can sit at the bar, chill with fans... More

Went to drillshack for 3 nights in one of the big cottages (we booked small cottage, and the small cottage price was billed). Really nice place to chill for a few days. Madam Susie and her staff were amazing and helpful! They can arrange a pick-up at the busstation in Dumaguete, which I would recommend. Also try the food in... More

I have stayed at many hotels during my time travelling around the world (104 countries now visited at least once), and I have a fair idea of what to expect from 1 star to 5 star resorts.

We were looking for an inexpensive and quiet place to spend a few days away from the chaos of Dumaguete and the Drill Shack resort filled that need perfectly. It is not the most luxurious resort in the area, but it is probably the cheapest. The bungalow we were given was basic but clean with its own bathroom ( cold... More
