We spent 4 days here after touring Tokyo, Manila, Bangkok, so it was JUST what the Dr. ordered- peace and quiet, fabulous food & such warm and welcoming staff and hosts, Pierre & Fred. We were 2 families with 3 kids and spent one day out on a fishing boat which took us to 3 islands and our own beach... More

We went to Siargao with managed expectations... Why?? Since it is a surfer's paradise and haven't heard of any nice place to bunk into we were expecting so-so accommodations and grilled, steamed seafoods... What did we get?? Kalinaw was heaven on earth right from the time we stepped into the resort. We were led to our villa which was capacious... More

This is the best option in Siargao if you are willing to spend a little extra! It is very close to other accomodation such as greenhouse and has a similar setup but in a much more luxurious style with attention to detail on all levels. Very private and large bungalows with cleaver designed bathrooms, in-room safety box, aircon. Awesome infinity... More

Stayed at Kalinaw from July 5 - 8, place was great the surroundings were very nice and the grounds well kept. Level of service we received was also great (having a very small guest to staff ratio helps!). Food for the price was well worth it and the portions were nice, Fred and team have in my opinion arguably one... More

Beautifully presented accommodation which features 5 villas. Check in and out very easy. The rooms were huge and well presented, the air conditioning in the rooms did not cope with the heat which made sleep in the huge king size beds a bit difficult. We also had problems with mosquitos in the rooms but after advising the staff they had... More

We recently booked 4 out of the 5 villas while we attended a wedding on Siargao Island, the rooms were every bit as good as the pictures and the staff could not do more for you. Fred and Pierre were there to greet us on arrival and oversee every part of the resort. Loved the infinity pool and the tranquil... More
