“Head & shoulders above the rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I, and my filipino wife & 2 kids stayed at White Sands/Famous Bollox Bar & restaurant during the school holidays sept/oct this year. Owner & hosts Alan & Cecillia were not only allways available to attend to our needs during our stay but were completly focused on our overall experience on Siargao Island. Clean a/c room with comfortable bath/ensuites, sat t.v & great restaurant/bar right on the beach. Water sport equiptment for the kids was also on hand & gave my wife & i some well deserved time out. The food was second to none on the island & offered local and western foods. We found the prices to be surprisingly modest considering the overall spectacular location, quality of meals available coupled with the more than comfortable accomodation, add this to the general vibe of the resort & its a winner. Many thanks to Alan & Cecillia for making our stay memorable.

Had a very pleasant stay here. The bed is one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept on, the shower is way better than the showers at some fancy hotels in the city, Alan the owner is very accommodating and helpful, food is good, beer at 30php (the cheapest in the whole Philippines I guess), the whole environment is just great. .

Was supposed to stay for a couple of nights, but we decided to extend our stay. We love it there. Peaceful and beautiful, white sand beach at the tip of your nose, and surf spots just few minutes away. Next time I'm going there, I'm bringing my tent (you can camp at their premises too), or maybe not :).

White Sands is a great place to stay for all types of visitors. There is an amazing beach right in front of it which is great for swimming and snorkelling. There are some quality surf spots near by much quieter than the ones near general luna. Alan and his family are great hosts and serve up the best burgers on the island as well as the cheapest coldest beer we came across. Can't wait to go back!

We stayed one night in the single beach front accommodation offered at White Sands as a special occasion for my boyfriend's birthday and it was well worth it! It's literally just you on the most beautiful beach I came across on Siargao Island and if you're up to it you can set an alarm and watch the sun rise over the sea and the huge horizon which is completely magical. The bed looks out over the beach through patio doors so you can even do all this from bed if you want! Once it's day time the beach is set in a cove and protected by a long reef but the water is still deep enough that it has fantastic snorkelling - literally the best i came across on the island! We saw nemo fish and angel fish, loads of fish I don't even know the name of and the biggest starfish I've ever seen in my life all within a few meters of the shore. It's clean, comfortable and private and we had a great night so I'd highly recommend it.

Room Tip: There's only one apartment room on the beach itself to keep it really special but all the others...

I enjoyed a weeks stay at the White Sands resort with my wife and daughter and we all had a relaxing and entertaining week. The owner is a very funny man who makes jokes about being the best looking and best pool player on the island, although he met his match in me! His wife is a lovely, friendly and helpful lady and their young boy is just the cutest. The rest of the staff were also very hard working and friendly. We started our stay as customers and left as friends....... We look forward to visiting this resort again and I would fully recommend anybody to stay here.

Room Tip: Go for the beach front - great views of the morning sunrise!
