Dipolog Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 24 photos

Mindanao, Philippines

Dipolog is in the the province of Zamboanga del Norte in Mindanao. I wasn't really able to travel around Dipolog (except the airport) because I headed straight to DAKAK PARK BEACH RESORT in Dapitan about 30-45 minutes from the Dipolog Domestic Airport.


Dakak Park Beach Resort was once a very famous resort in the Philippines. In the early 1990s it won an award as one of the best hotels & resorts (note that these are awarded not only by Philippine agencies but also an international award-giving body. In 1992 it was given a certificate of Excellence by the Presitigious Resorts of the World (according to Pilmap). It's one of the first if not THE FIRST first class resort established in Mindanao.

My Stay

My stay is filled with ups and downs. The resort is very comfortable. Food is fresh and really delicious. And reasonably priced too. There may be a few staff that need hospitality training though. Make sure to check my tips for additional info.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:laidback environment, for dakak: very private
  • Cons:some locals are just plain rude (and I'm Filipino at that!)
  • In a nutshell:Love the Prawns! Yummy!

    Hi your Dakak page was really helpful.I have to mention though,that the service of all the staff was excellent.Me & my friends were never treated the way you were (marketing dept might have read your page) Cottages are also better maintained,no bugs/pests
