Went to this place just in time for lunch on our first day on the island. Ordered their fish nuggets which happened to be one of my favorites--- tuna! Serving was quite reasonable. People are accommodating, we even had photo ops with the owners and some of the surfers! hope to be back this Feb. :)

I love this place to pieces. It has such an easy, laid-back vibe: Luca and his crew were very attentive and helpful - setting up surfing lessons or island hopping excursions, and transportation. The restaurant was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. We stayed five days at the resort. The bungalow was clean and comfortable, and the air-conditioning worked.... More

We stayed for 5 days in Kermit and we really had a great time. Great ambiance, and delicious food at an affordable price. Also, all the staff were very friendly. They will accomodate your concerns, the managers were very hands-on with the activities in the island (Island Hopping and Surfing) as well as, the restaurant manager. He always asks people... More

It was a perfect 7 days at Kermit for NYE 2016. The room is cosy and clean, close to the beach. The restaurant is for real no1 on the island. The staff is verry friendly and helpful . We had two verry nice surf instructors Monny & Jam Jam who were amazing. We learn to surf in a couple of... More

We spent 8 nights at Kermit last week and absolutely loved the place - we both wished we could have stayed longer!! There is a really nice vibe in the resort and it's very easy to socialise and meet people as they have a big lounge area in the restaurant where everybody hangs out. The restaurant served up a delicious... More

Thank you Christoph for your review and feedback. We are sorry that Rose and I weren't there for welcoming and meeting you guys in person, we are currently travelling to visiting my family abroad. It appears that your main "boo-light" was our "unwelcoming" service from the local European (they are 2 actually), which is unusual as we are normally praised... More

After spending 5 months in SE Asia I can safely say this was by far my favorite place I stayed at. Amazing food, great vibes, and not to mention Siargao Island is the best hidden gem of the Philippines. If you are in Siargao definitely stay here whether you are a couple, solo, or with friends. Not to mention the... More

I recently spent ten days at Kermit and absolutely loved it! I took the surf-eat-sleep package which includes accommodation, breakfast, motorbike and a local surf guide. Given the huge amount of spots, having a guide is the best way to enjoy the world class surf potential of siargao. I had the chance to have marama, who just won the wqs... More
