The location, rooms, food, service and people make this place a gem in Siargao. I would highly recommend Buddha's to anyone. It's a short stroll to the beach, the restaurant serves delicious food, surf lessons are arranged for you, the rooms are extremely comfortable and clean. I booked for three nights and stayed 11. It was too good to leave... More

No frills, good value and excellent staff especially William. Thanks really enjoyed ourselves. Meals were good and day outings etc were good. Probably worth getting a price on transfers before trip. The resort transfers are expensive if you have more than two travellers.

Thanks for the review and we are glad your family had a great time. Like most of the resorts we outsource airport transfers and they are a standard fee at 300PHP/head. If you wish to reserve airport transfers in advance some resorts do add on more, however we only charge 300PHP/head and do not make a profit on this service. More

I asked number of friends as to where should I stay in Siargao. Majority of friends recommended Buddha’s Surf Resort. My seasoned traveler friends didn’t fail... More

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

Thanks for your review Richard. Unfortunately the sun didn't come out for your short trip. Hence our solar hot water system wasn't hot. Usually in this instance we have an electric backup but it had a fault, and unfortunately by the time the new part arrived your trip was complete. We did however give you keys to a vacant room...

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
