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.

... rice, and very tasty. All of the food has been great, and since we are in a different region now, the Bicol region, we are going to try to local food here. It is supposed to be nice and spicy, which we love.
The afternoon was spent relaxing and enjoying very nice massages. At $12 for an hour massage, the pricing is a bit higher than Cambodia, but still a bargain.
Donsol has become famous for the abundance of whale sharks that frequent the waters ...
... been no sightings for 4 days. He briefly swam near a magnificent whale shark, their size and grace is truly amazing. Unfortunately because of the heavy cloud formations his boat only found one. But he said it was well worth the trip for this once in a lifetime experience. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was delicious! I had the most sumptuous, fall off the bone ribs in a mango glaze with mashed potato and veggies. As my Bermudian cousin would say... 'To die ...
So at 06:30 I grabbed a tricycle and drop my big bag off before heading to a dive shop opposite the information centre. I was hoping to dive at the Manta Cleaning station, but no one else was diving today. There was also a small problem yesterday with the diving, so I'm not sure I want to dive here at all.
Well I was up so I took a boat out to go ...
