Cherinicole Beach Resort
Ranked #25 of 43 Siargao Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We stayed in Cherinicole from July 10 to 17, nice and very clean resort with a big swimming pool. The have a very kind receptionist named Preachey, first she showed the room, then she gave us discount when I told her that we will stay longer, A very good place to stay especially for family traveler, very near in town center and also just enfront of that cheap restaurant Ronaldo. They have also brand new motorbike for rent for 350 pesos a day. We were very satisfied with our stay, very polite personnel,they always greet you with a smile, very recommended resort.

Room Tip: Select a cottage just beside the restaurant because its good internet.

Really enjoyed my stay at the cherinicole, came in on the ferry from suragao city around 3 hours with nice views and calm water.. Dont wast time in suragao but get cash and supplys there cuz theres not much on the island. I fell in love with the island on my 35 min motorbike ride though the country side of green rolling hills and lots of fresh air and little traffic. Anyway my one week side trip from manila turned into a month so i really got to no the people and the island well and loved it all. Ok Ill just give you the pros and cons of the resort.

The staff were kind friendly and made my stay extra nice.
The owner was on site to over see the operations.
I think they have the nicest pool and grounds of all the resorts
The rooms are nice clean and simple with a nice choice from around 1000-3000
Nice little beachfront with cabans tables and loungers.
free wi fi pool table and ping pong
new resturant with a nice ocean view and good food
Close enouth to town to get around on foot for shopping market and resturants
cuttest little puppys around girls were not bad ether

Ok the cons
One of the girls was a bit mean maybe it was something i did
The pool was not always cleaned but did it when asked
Meals were ok but best to get food at the market and pay them to cook it.
your a long way from cloud 9 if you surf just rent a scooter

Island tips

Rent a scooter for 500 a day and see the area and the island
Get a massage at the niwa tie spa 5 min down the road best on island 300
Take your scooter to the end of the road by union theres a huge nice all sand beach all to your own. ps bring your girl and some wine.
Take a day trip to see the island its big and some roads are gravel. get a map at from desk
go island hopping shop around and work right with the boat guy for the best deal
Spend a few hours in dapa with a big market then general luna
vist cloud 9 u can get surf sessons or rent board there at the hippy surf shop
nite life friday nites juggle island disco hot spot for all starts late like 10 lot of cold red horse
you can get a cold beer and burger on the boulavard in town by the market for 150
There seem to be lots of stuff happing surf comp and shows on the pier

I have travel a lot of the phil and this is the best spot so far

Room Tip: the new poolside room cuz its all new

We traveled from butuan to surigao seaport for 2hrs, then, another 2hrs to dapa seaport at siargao on dapa express. From dapa, another 25mins to cherinicole beach resort,general luna. Its a nice place and we even got a discount on the room. The beach was nice and clear waters. They have billiard pool table and table tennis. But the swimming was not well maintained. There were 5 of us in 1 room. The staffs were helpful, especially, when we asked to cook our food before going on an island hopping. The charged was 150 per kg when you want the resort to cook what you bought at the market. Generally, the resort was nice, the beach was nice, and the staff were. friendly. The crew on our boat stole our food.

the resort is nice and serene, and they serve a very good selection of food. its a beach front resort where you can walk along shores and you can hear the splash of great waves at siargao island. the rooms are decent and spacious. they also offers free wi-fi at the public areas of the resort. and the staffs are accommodating and honest because when our group check out at the resort and and waiting for our boat ride, my friend noticed that she left her iphone at the resort and the staff confirmed it and they have it delivered at port. very good gesture. definitely will go back at this resort

Havent check this room but from what they advertise this may be the best deal among all the rooms. P3,000 $70 per night (2012 rates)

Please bear in mind the General Luna is a third class municipality so don't expect something that extravagant. But with all fairness Cherinicole can be a place to stay for family or group of friends.
Not for a surfer as the resort is almost 5-6 KM away from the famous Cloud9 surfing area.
But not for a beach lover as the beach at the resort has a huge rock formation in front . No place for sun bathing or playing under sun with sand.
It's a must that you go on island hopping. The beaches are so inviting.

Local transportation is not available ALL the TIME . So location wise, again location wise, the resort is a short walk from church, wet market, a major Souvenir store, GL Boulevard, 9Bar (coolest bar in town just across the street), Dine-in store (other choices of food).
This is essential as the streets are not yet cemented, poor lighting and most of the hotels are far away and even just a little rain it become muddy. Not good for a long walk. So wet ,soft and slimy.

That is why during peak season Cherinicole is one of the resort that is fully book because of its amenities and location wise. Most of the time in Siargao it rains.

AREAS OF Improvement:
1. Availability of food in the resort.
2. Housekeeping.
