Great value accommodation and fishing.”
We went to Siargao to relax, catch some fish and enjoy the island, Sailfish Bay was a great place to do this. Away from the crowds at General Luna it is a clean, quiet place to relax while being close enough to cheaply travel to many interesting beaches and towns. We had great fishing for our stay and caught fish every outing including large Mahi Mahi and a 15.4kg Wahoo (Tanigue) which was awesome fun. The fishing tackle is top notch and the crew go out of their way to provide the best bait and overall fishing experience, and the chef did a great job of preparing our catch for dinner, delicious. Sailfish Bay is very good value for money and we will be back to try for some Sailfish and Marlin once they're in season.
A fine enough stay in Pacifico”
Pacifico is talked about as what GL was 10-15 years ago. True enough, even the accommodations reflect this, with air conditioning being a luxury not all resorts have, and time moving very slowly from a service standpoint. Sailfish has both ac and fan rooms and is very clean. Their service is sometimes scatterbrained, but that’s to be expected in a location that is off map. Mark, the Brit who heads the Inn, is a treasure trove of fishing knowledge, so definitely look him up and stay at Sailfish if you are interested in big game fishing. For families, Sailfish was a safe, no frills choice, with the added benefit of the best fish and chips on the island. I would stay there again.
FISHING IN PARADISE”
Most enjoyable second stay @ Sailfish Bay Lodge Jesse and Mark Latham, great couple to run the lodge and understand the needs of a variety of travellers to Siargao Island. Marks fishing boat is good value and will put the Angler amongst Sailfish, withe the opportunity for all guests at the lodge to share the cost of the boat.
I had a great stay at this resort. You can't beat the experience for the price. I have gotten a lot less, paying more than what I did at Sailfish Bay. If I am to return to Siargao Island, I will be staying at this resort again
Absolutely best place in Pacifico, crazy big rooms and huge balconies. The food & fish is amazing. ”
It was the most pleasant accommodation I had so far in this travels, the owner and the workers are very kind and nice. They are great chef's as well, try the different fishes that they serve, sailfish, Mahi Mahi among others, I loved the sailfish in breadcrumbs and fries absolutely amazing and very generous portions. The rooms and facilities are all clean and oversized, very spacious as well as the balcony. Can not say anything bad about this place.
Great facility, Convenient location”
We had an excellent stay. The lodge was clean and well built and located at reasonable distance to the marina, surfing and recreation spots. Guests during our stay were focused on fishing and surfing. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about the local fishery which I would estimate is the best remaining in the Philippines. Siargao Island fronts the Philippine trench with a length of approximately 1,320 km (820 mi) and a width of about 30 km (19 mi) trending southeast at its deepest point, the Galathea Depth, has a depth of 10,540 metres (5,760 fathoms; 34,580 feet), the third deepest in the world. jalias
Great location nearwhite sand beach, not only for fishing.”
This hotel is straight on the beach with white sand. It's great for a relaxed time, if you like swimming, snorkeling or surfing, its all just a few steps away. Not as busy and hyper as General Luna, just in a nice relaxed area you can mix with the locals. It's a clean relaxed place with friendly staff, just ask, and they try to do their best to accommodate your wishes. It's a great location also to see more of Siargao with makapunko, tak tak falls and many other things, rent a motorcycle there, go everywhere in reasonable time...relax to be short!
Very nice room at a cheap price.”
Pros: The room is huge and clean. It has balcony. Bed is big (king size). It has soundbar. (Which made the room very appealing to my partner) It has sunbed inside the room which can be brought in the balcony. The lodge has rooftop. The beach view here is amazing. The staff is very warm and welcoming. Didnt get her name, though. The food here is great. We ordered Sirloin steak and Blue Marlin Steamed Fish. It was a bomb and very cheap. Cons: I dont like the neighborhood. Maybe its just me, but I dont like being looked at and being teased.
Lovely place, great host, good staff”
Away from the crowded and busy area of general luna, I had a great time there. Mark the owner is a very nice guy and his home will be yours as well for the time you stay. Apart from the terraces on each floor there is even a rooftop terrace, which I had to myself since now one else came up there. I enjoyed many sunsets and the stars up there. The house is rather new and easily holds up to european standards. The beach is one house away, mitorbike rental two houses, as well as some small shops and restaurants in pacifico. The food at sailfish is good, but rather on the heavy side. The fries where so good, my plan to loose some kilos did not work out ;) bring earplugs if you are going to the phillipines! They seem to love cockfights and there are roosters everywhere, and they do nit wait until sunrise ;) long story short, would go back there anytime !
Homey, Good People & Facilities: fishing, surfing, billiards etc.”
We love the place, big beds, nice view since beach front, staff and owner are friendly and accommodating, there are plenty of things you can do inside the lodge, such as billiards, darts, movie watching, dine and drinks. We also rented a motorbike to roam around the island and tourist areas. Though far from the airport (Php500 - fixed transpo rate) the daily room rate is fairly reasonable and we don't mind staying there because some of the tourist spots are nearby the area. The place is also serene compared to Gen. Luna area, which we also like. Highly recommended.
Nice, clean and affordable. ”
Centrally located in Pacifico. Can walk to either end of Pacifico (Pacifico Beach Resort to Bamboo Beach Resort). Much less touristy then General Luna but nice and relaxing. We rented a scooter and spend several days in GL. We took our time on the scooter and it was about 1 hour and 15 min trip. Sailfish is near the beach but not on it. We had a view of the ocean and beach from our balacony. If you plan to fish, Book in advance to secure your time.
exceeded my expectations totaly”
I will deffinately be returning to Sailfish bay Lodge.
fantastic facility in an authentic place. ”
Highly recommended! ! Everything about this place is top notch :) clean spacious rooms, fantastic European and local food, staff (literally became like family during my stay) made me feel like home And really local atmosphere with lots of people and kids all over . Pool table ,MASSIVE !!!!! fishing spots within a walking distance. For me it was heaven. make sure you're aware of it's location as it's far from general luna (which was exactly the reasons why i stayed there for nearly 2 weeks and Coming back ) if you want to enjoy quite and peaceful place yet with great facility in a VERY decent price -look no further
good place for the price”
pros : basically on the beach walk to popular surfing beach not to many turists in this small village super cold beer quiet, clean, big room big comfortable bed fan and accessories great sound system and TV with many DVD movies cons : ac loud salty water in bathroom staff downstairs not easy to find to get food or drinks
Friendly staff, great for relaxation”
I stayed for 6 nights, perfect for those like me who are looking for some peace and quiet, relaxation time away from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke. There was no WIFI and no mobile phone reception (on SMART), but if you go to the street you might pick up a bar or two. Definitely no 3G signal. So its perfect from getting away from it all, no disturbances. It's quite far away from the areas where most of the tourists (and night life) on the island congregate (66km away from Dapa, and a further 14km to Dapa), you'll have to rent a motorbike and it'll take you around 1.5 hours more or less. What I love about this place was the people and the food. You have to try the Chicken Curry or Adobo. Also the beach is right there on your door step.
Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Room nice with sea view balcony and overall was great value for money and 15m from a beach with concrete road access. Travelled the central and northern areas of Siargao while using this as a base, as had already spent time down south.
If you want to stay in a relaxing part of Siargao, this is definitely the place for you. It's far from General Luna where the crowd is on hype. This place is beach front where you can also surf. The staffs are very friendly and accommodating. The place is clean, huge rooms, overlooking beach. Sari-sari stores nearby, motor for rent available in the neighborhood.
Amazing room with Air con. Absolutely love everything about this place.... the room, the bathroom, the bed, the balcony, the location! The downstairs lodge and bar is great too... kinda feels like a relative's house. Very comfortable and welcoming!
The place is perfect as beach front and near to surfing area, 25min away to sayak airport and spots.”
Pros: beach front, walking distance from surfing area, spacious, clean and polite staff. Cons: standard room no aircon and no signal. Over all our stay is worth a try, will definitely booked again here. Thank you so much ;)
Great place to come. Awesome fishing and surfing right at your doorstep.
