I've traveled to Siargao many times and many times stayed in just about every other resort there, but Buddha's Surf Resort is hands down. More than the place and the amenities were the incredible hospitality of the staff who made sure we had a wonderful time, they made us want for nothing and always happy to help. Overall I had...

Buddha Surf Resort is a great place to stay off from the waves of Siargao Island. We arrived at the resort on a rainy afternoon and we were accommodated immediately by the staff. After some conversations, they led us to our room. Their bathroom is one of the most spacious I've ever tried. Hot and cold shower are available. For... More

Everything we had hoped for and more than we could have imagined. The little details have been put in here; coconuts on arrival, slack line in the garden, privacy between rooms. The staff are all lovely; from the warm hearted owner and helpful managers to all the smiling and friendly resort staff. The Thai food was my favourite and the... More

Our stay at Buddhas was absolutely incredible! We got the surf package and could not have been happier. Dan and Hannah, the managers, were so much fun to hang out with. They were always proactive about handling any questions/concerns of ours and would do ANYthing to ensure we had a great stay. Our surf instructors Dominic and Rico were super... More

Buddha's accomodations and location exceeded my expectations for my first trip to Siargao. The friendly staff and Chris, the manager, took great care of us by accommodating surf trips, island hopping and sight seeing trips. The food was okay though I was surprised they served UCC coffee. The atmosphere was relaxing and spacious. We were a bit disappointed that acoustic... More

Great location in the heart of Siargao on Cabuntog beach. The staff is very friendly, helpful and well trained. Big ups for the manager Chris. Good surf location advise and organising the boats for all trips to the waves.

Buddha's executes a great balance of professionalism and island mellowness. The manager, Chris was very helpful and always ensured the guests were satisfied. The restaurant had great food, and is a great spot for meeting new people and chilling out. Thanks Buddha's!

Staff was always prompt in attending to our needs. Easy to go on surf sessions usually organized by the manager. Relaxing and spacious common area. They have a weekly acoustic night which everyone seems to always look forward to. Located just in front of one of my favorite surf spots, Hawaiian Jack.

Good times at this cozy surf retreat. The food is excellent, specially the Thai curries. The rooms are clean, beds are ok, and a nice green garden. The new kite school is an extra add, so we could take a kite course during the windy days. Anytime again...
