Just simply quality quality and more quality, from the moment of arrival to the inevitable departure everything about this hotel was quality, from the hotel itself to the food, the staff and the allround service at this hotel, a fantastic place to chill out and let the world go by.

Room Tip: Beach front rooms are awesome

Although we were staying up the coast from Pacifico and the Sailfishbay Surf & Big Game Fishing Lodge we stopped by for a cold beer. Situated right on the beach the beer was cold, menu was extensive and obviously very good as no-one spoke to us until their plates were clean and the view spectacular.
The owners Mark and Jessel were great hosts, friendly and very accomodating.
Also they arranged for us to go Big game fishing on Marks boat in the middle of a Worldwide competiton which culminated in a great party with guests from all over the world.
Go again? Yes definately.

The place is awesome! fresh air and amazingly clean awesome beach. The four days we stayed there, no dull moments. seeing the beach view from our room is already entertaining. Plus a big bonus, the people there treat you more than a guest, you are their family once you're there. We'll surely gonna comeback there. :)

A modern oasis in a very remote area of the world, the Sailfish Lodge was just what we needed. Mark and Jessel provided us with a nice, comfortable stay. The place is more upscale than primitive, The water was hot and the ambiance is homey and family oriented with a great attention to detail. These guys really know there way around, and are great at helping people with any requests.

We enjoyed our visit to Siargao by virtue of this good-looking hotel and hospitality of it`s owners.
Sailfish stands in a beautiful ocean coast, and i had an oceanview room. Their rooftop is "a place to be"!
We also took an owner`s jeep with a driver, to trip around the island, it took a whole day but it was awesome. Oh! And we suppose their cousine to be the best in San Isidro. We really enjoyed it!
We had a big trouble because of storm when our flight was cancelled, but Mark helped us so much, and we appreciate it and whish him and his family and Dave all the best )))
Thanks a lot guys! We`re glad we know you and we`ll be back for fishing next season.

If you travel north of General Luna, either looking for big game fishing, uncrowded surf or white sandy beaches, and you don't stop in Pacifico to stay with Mark and Cecilia at the Sailfish Bay Surf "mansion," you are MISSING out -- BIG TIME. Good-sized, modern rooms with king-size beds at very reasonable rates. Good food and friendly owners. The Sailfish Bay is my choice when I return! Thanks a bunch.

Fabulous 6 day trip. ,The view from my room and the roomitself was stunning ( no other way to describe it) ! The hospitality was very friendly and you felt very much appreciated. This is what you call a bang for your buck lodge! Not to mention, I caught a Wahoo!! and almost caught a Blue Marlin (not joking, i had it on my hook!! ) Although the weather was a bit hot, the rooms were well A/C'd and anything I needed Mark and company were always there to help. If Mark and company are reading this, thanks again for the great time.
