My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary earlier this month. "Dakak" is from "dakong dakoy" which in Cebuano means big tree. Evidently there were many big trees here when it was first built. Dakak is located in a secluded area, about 15 minutes from Dapitan City and 30 minutes from Dipolog City. The cottages are built from long lasting materials and are well built. We found the staff here to be very friendly, helpful, and anticipated our needs. The food is good and reasonably priced. Waiters and staff are very attentive and friendly. There are several pools on the property as well as water sports. This is a great place to vacation. They beach was right near our cottage, so in just a few steps we were on the beach. It is the only resort along this beach, so there are no other guests waking through.

Room interior looks old and not well maintained. TV has no remote and channel selector not functioning. Could not use intercom to call fdesk. Window type aircon not cool during the day - either inadequate HP, unserviced, or both (no wonder there's a stand fan). Experienced brown out and their genset did not kick-in immed; when it did, could not supply power to A/C. No room slippers available - this P35 rubber-pair would be very useful when guests go to the pool/beach.

We arrived and took our lunch in their Bamboo cafe: a dish cost P300+; halohalo P160; iced tea (powdered) is 60 per glass! For dinner we ate in Kamayan ni Manay (fr the cauldron to another- resto owned by RJ also) - another hi-way robbery. Lunch/dinner for 6 cost P3000+

Buffet breakfast was plentiful. Personnel were courteous and helpful.

Package was for 2 pax @ P5800 2D1N plus fantasyland tour/rides. We were 3 couples.

P5,800 less F/land tour 400, shuttle 1,000 and pool use 400. P4,000 for a 2-star cabana is way too expensive. Their accomodation is a far cry from Dumaguete's P1,200 hotel Ess.

Lunch in pier, while awaiting boat to depart, P500. More full-tummies, less stressed-hearts.

We had fun and enjoyed our 4 days stay in Dakak.We took a sunset boat tour of the coves around the area, tried their paddle boats, swam in the pools and beaches including Aliguay island, rode the ATVs and the longest zipline. We had nice dinners in the different restaurants.
We liked the Dapitan city tour and the wonderful lunch at the Fishpond restaurant. We had an exciting evening at the Fantasyland.The rooms are quite old and delapidated but clean and nice. The staff are friendly and helpful.It was a great experience for me and my family.

I just have a day tour with my family and we found it expensive but 80% of the entrance fee is consumable to any activities inside the resort. The beach was breathtaking just like Boracay and Panglao islands. Swimming pools are okay. Unlimited Buffet is also expensive.

Dakak was so famous years ago. It was more famouos than Broacay then but I guess it already lost it's light. When we went there last week, they were renovating the area (rooms, road, restaurants), i believe they are getting back on their feet.

The beach, it was great. Such a lovely Dakak Cove.. white sand. View of the mountains, the sea... it was ery refreshing. But the water. it isnt the best in the Philippines. The water was dark. you can't see what is under bec the sand is all mized with the water. THe swimming experience was not work though. it was still good.

The Pool, it was where we swam more. the poolside jacuzzi was also good.

They have this restobar which is in a shape of aship (it was really cool).
There were no free breakfast so we didnt get the chance to taste their food.

They have a Casino but said it was temporarily closed. I bet they only open it if they have lotsa guests.

The Room... we stayed on a dorm type. twas big. Good for 16 but it was only 10 of us. In the dorm room there were 4 double decks. The lower deck was a double size bed while the upper deck was a single size. The were also 2 queen size beds. There were 2 toilets and 2 bathrooms. a refrigerator and a TV with cable. We we charge a per person fee which was P699 each for the stay. No Wifi Connection in the rooms

It was relatively pricey since we were already housed on a dorm type room and they didnt serve free breakfast with it.

We also have free passes to Dapitan's theme park, Fantasyland.
