I'm a fishing enthusiast and I wanted to learn how to fish for sailfish. Mark (the owner), his wife, staff and boat crew were excellent hosts and made us feel right at home. The boat captain (DoDong) and his mate, Clifford, put us on the fish. Captain DoDong was happy to answer all my questions on rigging, bait prep and... More

We stayed at Sailfish Lodge April 2015. The owner, Mark, and his team took care of all of our needs and arranged to meet any extra-ordinary requests we had. The weather was perfect and we landed Sailfish and Mahi-mahi on our days fishing. The chef cooked our fish beautifully for us, all the food was good there. The price was... More

The island of Siargao seems to have two major areas for accommodation, Pilar or Pacifico and Cloud 9. Cloud 9 is really geared for the surfing crowd where Pacifico is a lot quieter and closer to the beauty of Del Carmen and other areas of interest. We chose to stay at Sailfish Bay Lodge because of the location (close to... More

Spent 3 nights here with Mark, Jessel and there team. Everything was of a high standard and well priced. Staff make you feel at home and accomodate your needs where required. Went out fishing for one day and caught a nice mahi mahi and a decent sized sailfish. Definitely worth the trip!

Me and my fiance, Jesica, traveled from Surigao City to Pacifico on Siargao Island to experience big game fishing. We experienced that and much more. We were able to feel at home at Sailfishbay. The Lodge is a family owned and run operation that caters to your specific needs. These accommodations were made without hesitation and always produced satisfying results.... More

If you want to get away from the busyness of "crowd 9," this is the place to do it! The Sailfish is a clean spacious hotel right on the beach. Each room has a large balcony, and big comfortable beds. You can eat at the hotel, or if you want some variety, there are 3 or 4 other places as... More
