This was an interesting trip. Siargao is a largely unspoilt island. No brands, no chains. So far so good. If you are looking for something cheap - this may be for you. It is extremely basic accomodation - that's ok, but there are no services. There is a pool table and fridge with beer - but I can't do much... More

Dear Graham H, Thank you for sharing your experience. I agree, Siargao Island is pretty laid back, no frills no gimmicks and that is how we want it to stay. Although we are 7.5km (4.5 miles) away from the surfing area Cloud 9 & other “resorts”, many of our repeat guests find value in our lodge`s location, close to many... More

A good place to stay in Siargao. Affordable and comfortable. The owner was so nice to give us a discount. The location is not so near the surfing area but good enough. I dont know if they serve food but they didnt serve any during our stay. I would recommend the place if you are in a budget

Dear Nova May J, Thanks for the recommendation! I love reading your "Affordable and comfortable review". I`m delighted to hear you enjoyed your short but lovely stay. Yes, there is on average more rain in January due to tropical storm activity. Nevertheless, many seek this type of boiling storms for an epic surf ride. The summer in Siargao is from... More

General Luna is a small but lovely island in the Philliphines. We stayed at wave cave for 2 weeks. The staff guided us around the island, the also had a boat so we went to many nice islands for surfing and sun bath. In the evening we took a beer and played pool in the bar on the second floor....

It was a very nice and clean place. I stayed a few nights and could use wi-fi for free, rent a motorbike for less money and get helpful advice from the personel where to go. A highlight was the island hopping!! Upstairs you find a beautiful terrace with billard, a bar and you can sit on wooden, comfortable chairs. The... More
