Smooth and Relaxing Stay”
Thank you Kokai Resort for an overall relaxing stay with you. Value For Money: We stayed for 2 nights in a "kubo"/nipa hut style standard room for PHP 2,877.00 only. It's a pretty good catch for us! Location: Kokai Resort is 7-10 minutes away from Cloud 9 ( famous surfing spot in Siargao) via tricycle/habal habal. It's walking distance to famous restaurants such as La Carinderia, Kermit Restaurant, Mama's Grill, Altrove, Illy, Sushi Nori, some Vegan restos, hangout/party bars, etc. But if you're on a tight budget, no worries cos affordable carinderia and bakeshops are also near the resort. Cleanliness: We arrived in our room with clean towels and sheets. Staff: Staff are very accommodating. We're really glad that they allowed us to check-in at 11am although check-in time is 1pm. They also arranged the van transfer to airport for us. Facilities - The resort doesn't have swimming pool, gym, kids' playroom, etc. but duuuuhh! you're in Siargao, you don't need those. Explore, enjoy and feel the island vibe! PS. We're Frankie the doggo is so cuuute and nice. Thank you, Kokai! We hope to be back real soon.
One Of The Best Spots In Siargao”
We've been going to Siargao for almost 10 years now and have stayed with groups at numerous places around the island. Not only is Kokai a fantastic resort with clean and comfortable rooms, but Sandy, Am, Theresa and the rest of the crew at Kokai really make the effort to make your stay special. Personal friendly service, helpful staff and good conversation are all part of the package at Kokai. Whether you are travelling solo, with a friend or in a group, Kokai has great facilities for your stay and awesome knowledge of the island and all it has to offer. Can't recommend them more! Thanks for the great stay Kokai :)
Sorry it took us so long to write a review! We had an amazing stay at Kokai Resort. The owner Sandy was friendly and super accommodating! We booked everything through Sandy (day trips, transportation), and if he wasn't around, Gail (owner) was always there if we needed anything. The bungalow itself was huge! Could easily fit 5. Although Wifi wasn't available in the room, it would reach our deck so we could sit on the patio at any time to use it. Bathroom was clean, as well as the bungalow. The aircon was pretty good and would cool the whole place down. The beach that it's located on isn't the best for swimming but is nice to stroll on. Located close to a popular disco, 20 min walk to cloud 9, and 5 minute walk to mama's grill (popular bbq joint). Transportation can be easily arranged for anywhere you need to go. Motorcycles are also available for rent on request. If you're looking to stay in an affordable place and aren't too picky about being so close to cloud 9, then this is your place! The staff are super friendly and accommodating and the bungalows are private and clean. I stayed here with my boyfriend and I can say without hesitation that if I were to make another trip, this is where I would stay! Lindsay and Adam Vancouver, Canada
I had the best time staying in Kokai resort. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating, so was the owner of the resort. On the last day just before my flight I had a heat stroke and they made everything needed to organize transfer to the hospital and then to the airport. I stayed in the dorm room and had a chance to meet a lot of travelers. It also felt very safe. The rooms have been cleaned every day, the bathroom and the toilets were always clean as well. I had daily breakfasts there, as the food was tasty with good variety. I’d strongly recommend this resort and would surely be back myself.
Our stay was good except for...”
Location + near cloud 9, boulevard and other restaurants - the beach front is not suitable for swimming you have to walk further near Isla Cabana or the cemetery Staff + they always acted fast when we requested for something - I don't exactly like very bubbly and energetic employees but a little warmness would have been nice, they were all straight faced throughout our stay - During the boat ride to Siargao, we met a boatman who offers island hopping tours so we agreed to go with him already. When we arrived at the resort, the staff offered a boat for island hopping so we said we already have, then one staff said that IT IS NOT ALLOWED to book with other boats. Since we our staying at their hotel we SHOULD book them because they can't be responsible for us if they don't know the boatman. I understand her reason but THE WAY she told us was awkward because she was IRRITATED and she REPRIMANDED us for not booking with them. In the end she said it is up to us but the damage has been done so to speak. Facilities + 24 hours front desk and staff - they closed the restaurant because it is not peak season (which I understand) but it would have been nice not to walk further or take a habal just to eat a meal Others + wifi was fast + interior and exteriors was good - The water in the bathroom smells of metal which was a bit disgusting and the drainage was also a problem, after taking a bath your feet will be soaked already - our door cannot be locked so EVERYTIME we would go out we would ask the staff to lock it for us but they too cannot lock it saying previous guests have broke it so I was thinking if they know it was broken in the first place why didn't they have it fixed?! Anyway, they said they would look after the room for us and the place is safe but that didn't make us feel secured.
Could not be more happy about my stay at Kokai Resort! The owners and staff are super friendly and took really good care of me during my stay. Would highly recommend this to anyone travelling til Siargao.
Had a great time in Siargao and enjoyed my stay at Kokai Resort. The owner Sandy, his fiancé and staff were very friendly and helpful and made me feel right at home. Wish I could have stayed there longer.
Kokai was very accommodating, all the staff were super nice!! most specially amaar and carol! they were the best! i was able to meet the owner too. They always ask you about where you will go, or about your activities for the day, and they give you traveling advice too! everyone was extra friendly, Kokai became my home away from home! i would most definitely go back! I stayed last January 12-15.
Exceptional Customer Experience😀”
Our 2nd time to stay in Kokai and still we had a great experience in this Resort. Staff are so accomodating, polite and friendly. Kudos to the Lady Tagalog Manager(forgot her name☹) for being so nice to us,as always😀 Location is perf too!
Friendly staff The water has an unpleasant smell at first use, but they amazingly clean the area. They clean the bed and the room daily even without instructions from guest. Best Location to stay in General Luna Spacious parking space for bikes Will surely book again in the future.
The resort is very accessible since it is only less than 100 meters away from the main road of General Luna. It is of close proximity to recommended restaurants and only 1 tricycle ride away from Cloud 9. The room was decent and clean. The bathroom drain had the tendency to clog, but it wasn't that bad for a one night stay. If you are looking for a budget friendly resort, Kokai is worth trying.
Its location is very near to the center of General Luna. The only downside is there was no available wifi inside the room.
a little more information to guide your first time guest would add value as i have said to them i do not know any place to visit as it is our first time in Siargao. since nothing was mentioned we have wasted few hours on our first day only to find out that Cloud 9 was just nearby just a trike ride away :( when we requested if we can borroe spoon and fork, we were told initially that the owner does not allow it but after a few negotiation, we were able to borrow - the reason why we borrowed is their restaurant no longer entertain getting orders and since we arrive at the resort past 3pm and have still not had our lunch we were forced to go out to buy and for dinner, instead of going out again we opted just to buy and have them at the resort. aircon - would appreciate if instead of window type aircon - split type would make the room colder especially during day time instead of using using the ceiling fan same time. The room is quite big so the aircon currently installed isnt sufficie
We stayed for five days. The staff and owner were great. They gave us suggestions on what to do and where to eat. Would recommend this resort if you are looking for a central place in town. We had a great time and will stay here again if we go back.
The staff is very accomodating and friendly they will tell you tips to travel and how to save money while in siargao, i will definitely go back and stay there, much better if open na ung resto by 6.30 or 7am for breakfast as the restaurants around the area opens at around 8-9am. but it is not really a big deal.
Lovely short stay with warm welcome”
From owner of the resort to the front desk staff were very welcoming & we felt like staying at home. We just stayed for a night but would definitely love to stay here again next time.
Small resort in the city center”
Small resort well located in the center of General Luna. Staff were friendly but the room was a bit old and had some ants issues. We paid 50usd/night for a standard room which we believe was too high compared to other accommodations in the neighborough.
Its nice. But better if there is a private bath or at least a direct door to the bathroom from the room. Quite inconvenient going out of the room to go to the toilet esp when showering. They dont clean your room too, (only the outside of the bungalow) but you can sweep the floor yourself just ask for a broom. Very friendly owner. We were welcomed nicely and their staff are friendly and approachable.
Best to stay here when you are travelling alone. Affordable and all basic needs are available. Although the shower room has no lock :) But it’s fine. Can find a way to lock it.
Water has a foul smell! ”
. I tried checking in to other hotel during my trip to Siargao other hotel has a clean and odorless water. I will not recommend this place for friends and others. Room is just ok.
