Buddha's resort is a great option when staying in Siargao. Our holiday got a little rained out, but we enjoyed the visit regardless. Ashley and the team have set up a warm, friendly environment that's well priced, with decent rooms. The breakfast and food options are very nice, and having movies available to watch on the big tv for those... More

You don't come for the food (which was great, especially for the Philippines), you don't come for the comfort (which was more than adequate, especially for a small hotel by the beach), you don't come for the extras (but daily yoga will keep you in shape), you don't come for the nightlife (which you can skip) -- you come for...

Siargao is definitely an amazing place to visit. The island hasn't been over developed and has kept the laid back environment that most city-dwellers are envious of. We wanted to explore the different areas the island had to offer and experience the culture, but to our surprise, it was the people of the island and the staff of Buddha that... More

We stayed in the upper suite which is a very nice large room with a big private balcony. The aircon is modern and quiet and combined with a ceiling fan keeps the room cool and airy. The bathroom is large and high spec with a nice rain style shower. The Suite is worth the extra money, and in our experience... More

I signed up for a 6 day surf package. It was my first time surfing - Dom was my instructor and was very patient! The resort itself is small like most places on the island, but very nice. I stayed in an upper suite, which had a huge terrace overlooking the property. There was a great common area where all... More

i can't speak highly enough of buddha. I've been here a little over a week so far, and it's first class. The accommodations are fantastic, staff is friendly and attentive, food is great. Acoustic night was last night and place got packed and had great energy. Surf instructors and guides have all been first class. Great selection of boards, short... More

I stayed here on Siargao for three nights and the staff couldn't have made me feel more welcome . They organised day trips for us every single day so I managed to see everything I planned to see in the four days I was here . Rooms were spacious and modern with beautiful bathrooms . Food was great especially the... More

Really enjoyed staying there. Cool little place. Nice and clean rooms with a veranda, beautiful garden with hammocks and a very good restaurant. The owner has been very helpful with organizing surfing lessons. Also had a beautiful day-trip with SUP, mangrove tour and lunch with them.

This was the number 1 resort in Tripadvisor that's why I booked here and I understood why as I stayed in the hotel. You go to Siargao to surf and this hotel provides everything that is needed by a surfer or a "wanna be" like myself. I understand that the staff early in the morning looks for good surf waves...

2 weeks over Christmas at this place were the best choice we made for our 2 month Trip. The owner Ashley and his stuff did more than you could expect from surfing resort. Not only was the weather and the surf perfect most of the time, but even when a cyclone was running over the island and you couldn't do... More
