Had a family gathering and relatives booked us in this hotel, Sea view. Room is nicely sized, bathroom same way, has a nice Balcony to enjoy the sea. Best view is of course during sunrise and sunset. Heck it's very relaxing to just see all the boats coming and going all throughout the day, or the locals going about at... More

This is my 3rd time to stay in Hotel Tavern and I must say that when in Surigao, this is the place to be. Airport transfer is available for free. Staff are courteous and helpful. I love the fact that they have a list of the schedule of ferries/roro to Siargao. Rooms are clean. I have tried both the City... More

Hotel Tavern is spacious and clean. It's definitely the best in Surigao. You'll get excellent service from morning to midnight. During ungodly hours though, pray that you won't get that fidgety guy at front desk. We had to checkout before their 6AM buffet breakfast, so they offered to pack us a sandwich from the hotel restaurant. Like the ribs I... More

It was more of a transit stop for me between Cagayan de Oro and Siargao Island and I chose to stay here. My only hotel stay in my 17 days of travel in Northern Mindanao and it did not disappoint at all! To many it may be a simple room with air con and bathroom. But for a backpacker who... More

This is, far and away, the best hotel in Surigao City. Very well kept, clean with good amenities, including a personal safe in each room. The location is excellent, overlooking the ocean right on the "boulevard," Surigao's most colorful night time walking street. Live music nightly at the club next door. Also, Tavern has a very nice American and Filipino-style... More

The plan was to venture from Cagayan de Oro City to Siargao Island. Since, we were told that there would be no more ferry trips in the afternoon (all trips are from 5:30am to 12:30pm) to the said island, we come up with the idea of staying in Surigao City for a night. My boyfriend stayed at Hotel Tavern before... More

The Hotel Tavern is located near to the Harbour and the embarkation quay of the ferries to Srigao Island (known for surfing). The hotel has a new and an old part. I was staying in the old part. The room was clean and soberly furnished. The bath room was clean but somewhat old and exhausted. Internet connection was free, but... More
