Property Description

The resort is conveniently located within mere walking distance from the Whaleshark Interaction Center: your launch pad to experience snorkeling with what the locals refer to as the 'Butanding.' We pride ourselves in spoiling our backpackers and other budget travelers with more amenities than any other homestays or hostels in the area. Apart from its close proximity from the Center, our guests can enjoy being by the beach, enjoying the use of our infinity pool, have fun drinking during happy hours at our well stocked bar, and dining at our restaurant that serves local and seafood cuisine at budget prices. Our backpacker rooms are spacious, limited to 3 guests each room, and comes with its own bathroom (hot shower included) and individual cabinets to secure your belongings.

Woodland is also a dive resort partnered with a PADI certified in house dive shop where beginners and experienced divers can learn, enjoy and explore the various marine life that Donsol has to offer.

Very nice accommodation with pool and friendly staff :-) Very close to the whale shark watching, a little further to town. Would recommend going here!

My experiece in Woodland has been really precious andi will have this memory for long. I visited Donsol as soon as I arrived in Philippines and i was supposed to say there just 3 days to see the Whale sharks. But the lockdown for corona virus was starting in all Philippines. I immediately contacted the reception of Woodland and they gave me the maximun assistance to be longer.I stayed here 15 days and i felt like home. Paolo the manager and all the staff supported us in all! Thanks

Really nice hostel, there were 2 of us and we ended up having a dorm room to ourselves which was quite nice. The food in the restaurant is good and it’s handy you can pre order your breakfast the night before if you need to be up early. Showers were warm, beds were big but a bit hard, staff were friendly and helpful and the pool was great (although the sun beds are uncomfortable without cushions). We only stayed in Donsol to see the whale sharks so didn’t look around the rest of the area
