BENDING over backward to please. Mark is the propietor, he eats nails for breakfast and loves to fish black marlin. His Filipino lady administrator, is big time making her customers happy. They were the real deal. The price, HEY, you can see they aren't making a pile of money, but making a LOT of people happy.

We stayed here for four night and five days in February. We choose an all-inclusive package w/ airport transfer. We were greeted at the airport and 20 minutes later we were having a beer on the front porch of the lodge located almost right on the beach. The lodge was in great shape and the 2nd floor room we had... More

The hotel is a short drive from the airport (Mark had kindly arranged our transfers). The hotel is located in a small village at the end of a road and a few steps away from a pristine beach. Staying in this village gives you a perspective of real Filipino village life - a good thing if you want to get... More

Spent a week at the lodge in February 2016. English owner is now in residence so standards are much better than my last visit in 2014. Quality of food is the biggest improvement but improvements to the fishing boat make it more safe and comfortable. An excellent place to stay just to relax and want to be pampered but they... More

We have just returned from a two week trip in the Philippines and stayed at Sailfish Bay for four nights as part of our trip. The hotel is located directly on a long white sandy beach which was deserted most of the time we were there. Mark and his staff were very welcoming and always available to help with anything...

2015年12月25日,我们来到了锡亚高开始冲浪之旅,一共住了45天,在pacifico的sailfish家住了10天,因为非冲浪季这个浪点的浪不是很规律,后来又转战到了general luna,当然不如pacifico住着安静。我们骑着摩托跑遍了岛的所有村落del carman、DAPA、GL、cloud9、pilar、San isidro、pacifico、burgos……为了找个合适的住宿点,走访了无数旅馆酒店民宿。身为一本家居杂志的编辑,不得不说sailfish的房子盖的非常漂亮宽敞,而且内部装饰和搭配非常专业,这是老板Mark精心布置和护理的结果。他来自英国伦敦,是一个专业的建筑师,因为喜欢海钓在锡亚高住了下来。Mark非常懂得如何让人居住的舒适,一层是包含台球桌和影音区域的客厅、有着根雕艺术餐桌椅的餐厅、宽敞好用的厨房、原木装饰的吧台。二层的房间出租给游客,房间20平米左右,有着2米乘2米的舒适大床,宽大的阳台可以完美俯瞰20米外的白色沙滩和蓝色海洋,那在蓝天白云下源源不断涌来的一字白色海浪第一天就惊艳到了我。在锡亚高,热水洗澡是奢侈的,在pacifico只有sailfish一家可以做到。我们今天中午刚刚享用了Mark亲自做的炸鱼、薯条、沙拉套餐,而且是用Mark今天早上7点刚刚从海里钓上来的鱼。Mark非常会做饭,摆盘和颜色搭配都很讲究,给的量也大,虽然他的Menu只有10道左右可以选择,但是比如旁边两家旅馆的本地厨师那随便的摆盘和小小的量来说,Mark的饭真的太值了。唯一的问题是这里的手机和网络信号比general luna差得多,不过貌似刚好信号塔在sailfish门口。pacifico有三个旅馆,我们对比过,在jafe和bamboo garden都找不到手机信号,可是在sailfish没问题,虽然你可能要走到阳台上,房间里基本没有。wifi网络还算可以,一层完全没问题,阳台也可以,房间里手机上wifi就比较弱了,pad还是可以的。Mark做的饭比另外2家旅馆的都要好吃,而且量非常大很实惠,报价也不贵,个人感觉比另外两家的性价比要高的多。 If you want to go surfing or fishing, Sailfish is a good choice. Only walking for 5 minutes then you can get the surfing point-Pacifico. Sailfish is the only house with hot shower in pacifico, both of the other two resorts jafe and bamboo garden don't have. And your cellphone can find service only... More

After travelling the Philippines for a month it was such a wonderful surprise to get to a hotel where you had someone who understood everything we wanted and who had the knowledge about the Island where we were staying. The hotel was very clean and Mark couldn't do enough for us even changed the menu to what we wanted eat.... More
