The first thing that strikes you about Dangkalan is the location. Its a little way from town, right on the water, and quiet. There isnt much of a beach to speak of, and at low tide the water vanishes to the horizon. There is a pool though to cool off in. The rooms are basic but clean, there is cable TV but the reception can be mixed especially if there is a storm in the area. The breakfast offering is very basic to say the least, and is one area that could be improved. The staff are by and large excellent, nothing seems too much bother, and all are friendly and warm.
The distance from town is alleviated by using the resort van, and we took advantage of this every night to go into town to eat. There is a cost for the service, but they will drop you off and come back to collect you, or wait for you if you're eating fast food, or you can always take a trike back. The resort can arrange tours to the local attractions.
The resort to me offers so much more potential, the basics are there, its just lacking in some areas, like breakfast, but could so easily be improved. However, all in all, a very lovely stay, in a nice quiet environment, just what we wanted.
