The Boardwalk at Cloud 9
Ranked #16 of 41 Siargao Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is an average hotel right in front of the board walk. We rented two rooms for 4D/3N. Our room is located at the first floor (I forgot the Room#, I think it's 18, the building at the back of the nipa hut cottage. Our friends stayed at the Nipa hut cottage, which is in good location, beachfront!

When we arrived in our room, my husband noticed the broken toilet seat, he complained to the owner right away, but unfortunately, the toilet seat was replaced the night before we left (which was our 3rd night), it's useless, since for how many days, they didn't make any action. Another problem in this room since it's in the first floor, you can see the pipes (for the second floor) inside your room and attached to the wall, very visible and you can hear the flushing noise, I think on the top of our room is a washroom/toilet or shower, which is a nuisance and noisy especially when the occupants upstairs use the toilet/washroom/shower. It disturbed our sleep during night time. Another thing I find disgusting, is the mirror in our washroom, it's rusty! Water supply in the shower is not that strong.

At the Nipa hut cottage, our friends complaint that there's no water running in the shower, so they have to asked for a pail and a bucket.

Exchange of emails during reservation was pleasant. Owner was most of the time prompt of replying, sometimes delayed.

Reservation system is not efficient and organized. Our reservation was done 3 months before the check-in date but the owner sent us another email 2 days before we arrived if we paid our downpayment. This was settled in nicely.

Breakfast served with simple selections of Filipino/Western food. Nothing fancy. Staffs are friendly. Dining area location and dine-in menu are okay, nothing fancy.

Housekeeping is every two days, which you need to make your bed and don't clutter your room:).

I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay right infront of the boardwalk and the surfing wave! If you are on a budget and want nothing fancy on your stay, only need just a simple room, simple breakfast, simple menu for lunch and dinner, and wants to explore more of Siargao than staying inside the room/hotel, then this hotel is for you!

Room Tip: Don't stay on the the first floor room at the back of the nipa hut cottage. Noisy pipe and you c...

My second time staying at the boardwalk and was even better than last time. Great location and great people. I highly recommend the boardwalk for anyone wanting a few waves or just to get away from it all.

Came here last April on a Free and Easy trip and fell in love with the place! The staff could not get any more amazing! The surf instructors are really fun, great menu, spacious rooms and with the boardwalk right out side the front yard its the perfect place to sit, talk, enjoy a drink and watch the waves and awesome surfers in them! can't wait to come back!

Remember playing Monopoly and everyone always wanted to be the first to Boardwalk? That's because it's the bomb-diggity. Same deal here.. I came last year with a large group, but would've easily felt just as at home by myself. Andrew, along with the rest of the staff and locals were some of the most welcoming, hospitable people I've ever met. Whether it was bombing around the island on a scooter, checking out a cockfight, shreddin the best waves on any particular day, dancing all night at the local disco, or just kickin back at the bar with some great live music, the Boardwalk family made it happen. And even with the clean, comfy rooms, and excellent atmosphere and service, it'll always be the people that made this my most memorable week in the Philippines.

I've been coming to Cloud 9 at least once a year for the last 6 years. At first, as a backpacker in search of good value, and these days, as a more discerning traveler who still loves to have a good time. Andrew and Rhoda and their staff have always taken great care of me and my friends. From the days when we lived in the staff quarters because that's all we could budget, to now, when we can stay in a stellar room overlooking the break. I love the food, and there's always something on the go, my favourite is open Mic night on sundays when I get a chance to play guitar for a few beers (still a backpacker at heart). Don't ever change!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms with a view of the break are super. The lower fan rooms are great if you're on a...
