TravelPod Member ReviewsAguluz Homestay Donsol
We stayed at Aguluz for a night on the 25th of Feb. Our host, Marilyn was the best host we could have asked for. She personally took care of all our bookings and made our stay at her home quite memorable. Marilyn went out of her way to feed me vegetarian food as I was the only vegetarian of all the people staying over that night. All the staff that work for her are very warm and welcoming and I absolutely fell in love with her cute grandson. We would love to go back and stay at Aguluz whenever we visit Donsol again.

We considered getting a boat for 2 hours for the two of us but they wouldn't lower the price and we just cant afford it, besides, we have already done the ...

Being someone that had never before dived or snorkelled in y life i decided that this would be a good jump-off place to start. Only that this time i ...
... American/Filipino couple (Tess and Joey). Some of us sat nervously (Amelia) waiting for some sort of signal from a spotter, or our mute guide. It didn't take long, but it looked like one boat had beaten us to it, so we waited for our turn. The guide pointed us to the side of the boat where we all sat expectantly, all of sudden the crew shouted "now!". Without so much as a hesitation I jumped in, bashing into fellow swimmers and the outrigger along the way! Once ...
... taken us anyway had we stayed on. All the while the tour operator stuck to us like glue and spouted his hypnotic poison trying in vain to get us to book onto a boat tour to the waterfall.
The tricycle took us to a hotel where the tour operator would gain commission for having directed us there. The hotel itself was basically a building sight with only two rooms finished. There were no facilities whatsoever as they were still in the middle of building, yet ...
... a power cut. So instead we sat on the sea front chatting and enjoying the view until sunset.
A walk along to town yielded more grilled-to-order burgers, which we ate while kids performed some kind of play on the plaza stage. We also passed a band playing at the open-fronted "Jammers studio", a ferris wheel and more market stalls before wandering through the residential side streets. This took us past rows of thatched and corrugated iron roofed huts along the ...
