Near all places of interest. Pam, the manager, is accommodating and knows what to recommend. Children enjoyed the pool after surfing. Positive vibes and a great place to chill.

    Great place”
    Lovely vibe, great bungalows, great location, great staff, great garden ..... loved the place. Yes the water is funky / sulphurous .... it's from a deep well. Yes there are geckos .... you are in the Philippines / Asia. Yes it is humid ... like the rest of the island. The breakfast was excellent value. The beer cheap too. Having seen some other places where we lunched ...... thank heaven we stayed here. This place does actually look like the photos. The aircon kept the whole family room cold ... yum. The balcony was a great place to chill with an ice cold beer. Would definitely recommend.

    Over rated”
    Stayed six nights in a villa that had aircon stuck on minimal setting only. Basic amenities and water that smelt more like sewage. What was not known to us was that a hostel type dormitory was situated upstairs from the common area and located adjacent to our villa. As the caretaker was not on the premise after dark to police guests some were very inconsiderate even after midnight when we were forced to ask them to quieted down. Also we were often awoken by dogs barking and fighting close by. Believe that you get what you pay for but not on this occasion.

    Good location, island vibes”
    Resort located near restos and shops, wi-fi was not reliable, staff didn't have keys to our rooms so they did not clean the rooms during our stay, breakfast was not included and it was better to eat outside. They do serve breakfast for a fee and they had a kitchen guests can use. Owner was nice. Water from faucet/shower smelled of sulfur, we were warned about this but was informed it was safe, however, we learned other resorts don't have the same problem. It was a nuisance and I think the resort should do something about it. The resort only had limited staff and they don't serve lunch or dinner so you have to go outside to eat. They do rent motorbikes but ran out when we were there. Overall satisfactory but I think there are better resorts on the same price range.

    Affordable chill resort”
    Pros: - best location: few steps to the beach, near affordable eateries, famous restos (Kermit Restaurant) and bars (Barrel Bar) - same beachfront with the high-end resort Isla Cabana - AC in the room works well - bicycle and motorbike rental shop is just outside the resort - the garden and common area is very quiet. Perfect for their chill vibe - beer and soda are always available in the fridge! Just put it on the tab - i love their roofdeck! Enjoy the beachview while sitting on the lounge chairs or hammock - the best for me is the guest kitchen, where we can cook our own food (ideal for budget travellers) - the staff were very helpful and accommodating esp. Pam. She didnt hesitate when we requested to have fresh towels during the middle of our stay. :) Cons: - The water in the shower and sink has a sulfuric smell (like in the hot spring). We got used to it after a while. It may be bothersome for other people. - wifi is horrible. Better to use your mobile data

    WORST PLACE TO STAY!”
    Kawali Resort? Omg how do I start. First, they cancelled our reservation in the last minute because of double booking. Take note that we were fully paid already months prior to our stay. Kawili offered a dormitory and it was definitely okay with us. It was when we arrived that we discovered everything about the resort. We couldn't take a bath because the water was dirty and putrid smelling. The air-conditioner was not enough to fully ventilate the whole dormitory so there was no comfort in our sleep. And for security? I should say no security AT ALL. Their dormitory is for 12 persons (6 double beds) and our group was exactly 12. We didn't understand why Pam the manager wouldn't give us the key for the dormitory. We didn't feel safe and the worst part was random strangers would go inside our room to get their stuff in the lockers. If we were a group of twelve and there were 12 lockers in the dormitory, shouldn't those lockers be for our group only? SO, BIG NO TO THIS PLACE. Abegail

    Place is conveniently located near restaurants, bar, beach, stores, etc. Room is very nice, very affordable too. Staff are friendly. There's just some power interruption on our first day so AC and water are not working. It was fixed the next days though. So we will surely book here again when we come back later this year. Thanks, Kawili Resort!

    One of the worst hostels we’ve been too”
    Where do I start? Native room is poorly lit, there is sand everywhere even on the bed. Bathroom has a pungent smell, sink is leaking. They don’t do room service. It says in their room signage that they are “laidback”. I think it’s just a lousy excuse for giving really bad service.

    A nice, chill resort in Siargao”
    We stayed in one of the surf shacks in the resort. It's huge and can fit up to four people. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is big enough. The water from the faucet has a weird smell and the light in our bathroom was not working properly. They tried to fix it but couldn't. They're pretty relaxed about how they ran the resort. You can get drinks from the fridge and just write it on a paper in the common area. They'll compute everything when you check out. You can also order breakfast in the morning. It's good but a bit slow, so I suggest to wake up early and be the first one on the table.

    Best Time in Kawili”
    We had the best time in Kawili Resort. It had everything we need. The room is huge for our group. The beds are comfortable. It has a guest kitchen that we can cook. Saves us a lot of money. It has it’s own pool as well. And it’s a few steps away from the beach. It also has a roof top that we can chill and watch the sunset. The downside is that, there are black granules falling off the roof. Not sure what it was though. It gets on the bed, we had to clean it up everytime. Also, it will be nice to have someone everytime we need something. On out last day, before checking out, we didnt have water and we could not get a hold of anyone.

    The resort had more of a hostel feel than a hotel. Location is walking distance to a lot of the good restaurants. The beach area nearest to them was pretty amazing too. Relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. Though our native cottage was has seen better days, it always felt clean.

    There’s pros and cons”
    Love the location, the amenities, the chill vibe, the room, beds are comfortable, linens and towels are not worn out. The things that I did not like are: there are lots of mosquitoes!!! It makes it hard to sleep. I think its common with a nipa hut roof? they don’t clean the room even if we were there for 6 days. They don’t even pick up the garbage, no wonder why there are mice, cockroach and ants around. On our second night, my mom was complaining of a bad smell and could not sleep, we checked under the bed, and found a mouse trap with two dead mice and cockroach. The room was obiously not thoroughly cleaned. If it wasn’t for those this place would be perfect.
