hi jennifer, this is the official contact informations for both Vitton and Woodland Beach Resorts:

Vitton and Woodland Beach Resorts - are the premier resorts in the area, both can boast of having the largest and homiest rooms within a 100km radius. Both resorts are strategically located, adjacent to the Visitor's Center, the launch point to a most memorable wildlife interactive experience (swimming with the whale sharks). Most interactions occur just in front of the resorts not farther than 2 km off-shore. To many, the experience of swimming with the whale sharks opens up their adventurous selves and often leads to a greater appreciation of the sea, of wildlife and of ecology in general.

I'm studying the possibility of staying 1 to 3 mos. in the Philippines and now in the process of deciding where to stay. I'm considering Donsol to be my home base. Is there any special discount on rooms for a long term visitor in any of these Hotels cited?

Donsol is a known part in Sorsogon, but I haven't visited it yet. I'm aiming for a nice vacation there. Soon.
