      Nice quiet location”

      Nice bar ,pool table and lounge area. Sound bar interesting in room but wouldnt use bcz threat of 7000peso if broken. Very unwelcoming with all signage , warnings no smoking , drugs etc Play pool damage table 70,000 peso. Very off putting. We are adults and dont appreciate such warnings , they are unnecassary

      Reviewed February 06, 2019

      hi richard , thanks for the review they are all very much appreciated good and bad ones together ,as for our signs , we have no choice in putting them up especiaally relating to the drugs and no smoking it is now law here in the philippines for no smoking in a resort within the building and we could be imposed with a fine for not doing so and there is zero tollerance on drugs in the country , this is generally a back packers holiday destination and a surfers paradise and drugs are associated with the sport , we do not want penalties for not posting signs about it and have people arrested for taking them it is easier to let people know , you will be surprised how many people do not know the drugs law here and the smoking policies , as for the other signs , again we have no choice as many things get broken here and no one wants to say they have broken things as they may have to pay and there are only 2 decent pool tables in the north to play on and ours is one of them !

      Great location in nice area. Not party central.”

      Keeps getting better here, more money has been reinvested making it even better value. Huge bowls of curry, great breakfast. Power shower. Great central location for exploring the island. Bluetooth sound system in the room. Pool table, books, movies. Quicker to list the cons. There were none for me.

      We stayed for 3 days and I wish we stayed longer. I love the fact that there are policies posted behind the door. Clean place. Tasty foods. Great rooms. Quiet place. Though, I hope they have a dryer for clothes. The staffs are easy to talk too. Overall, it was a good stay. We'll come back soon!

      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.

      Low price, clean big room, hot shower, good food, shiny balcony, great ocean view, friendly staff, cool boss. But be careful with the driver of tricycle if you book an airport transfer, he will never stop trying to ask you for extra money(asked me to pay petrol fee and airport parking fee which is not exist, I refused)

      Off the beaten path”

      Good value for money but quite far from General Luna/Cloud 9. Mark (owner) is friendly and staff too. We came during a typhoon and no electricity for up to 2 days(off and on) but hotel did their best. Rooms as you see them in photos, spacious and simple but more than enough. We were in AC double, facing street. Little noisy early in morning because of roosters and lots fo kids, dogs, but calm in the evenings after 8pm. Had breakfast and dinner at Hotel, and overall, good taste and value for money. Beer so cold it froze when opened. Beach had golden heavy sand that was generally very clean, but the water is not young children friendly as the current after the reef was strong all three days. Waves were huge if you are a surfer but I never saw any well formed waves in 3 days. Not much of choice for food anywhere for miles, but a few things the small village and can rent a motorbike easy. To Mark:, teach your cooks not to deep fry hamburgers, and to try and get your pancakes more fluffy.

      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.

      Would definitely stay here again”

      Great value for money and right on the beach front. We booked to stay here for a couple of nights and ended up staying almost a week. Mark the owner is really chilled out and nice to sit and chat with him about the area. It is obvious he has put a lot of work into the hotel and the staff that work there are really friendly. Food was good and portions massive and the beer is cheap. Hot water and AC all working. WiFi a little intermittent but this is the same at all places on the island as the WiFi comes through satellite (dongles). Overall we were really relaxed in our stay and would definitely stay here again / recommend the place. You’ll struggle to find better value for money in the area.

      Good rooms, mediocre staff. ”

      Rooms are clean, spacious and a Bluetooth sound system is a pleasant mid con. Negatives are that guests are not given access to the hotel’s wifi in a town with zero mobile reception, and the staff need improving. One offered to do our laundry, but most of it was returned unwashed or not properly washed and she charged the double the normal rate. The plethora of signs announcing ‘house rules’ also detracts from feeling a welcome paying customer.

      Reviewed September 23, 2018

      hi simon , thanks for the review , we are sorry to read you had problems with the laundry , but at the lodge we do not offer this service , it is all done outside as we have experienced similar problems ourselves , if you asked the staff then we cannot be held resposible for what goes on outside as they do it in there own home and not here , as for our signage , we have no choice due to the new laws being brought iapon us by the goverment ,especially about drugs and smoking ,without the signs you would be surprised by the excuses we listen to about all sorts of things especilally losing room keys and breaking things , we have heard them all from being possessed by the devil to slipping on bananas ! it does put people off especially experienced travellers like yourself , but then most of our clientel are back packers going around the world on a limited budget and breaking something expensive to replace does not come into thier agenda , would you rather know than be told later?

      Weird place for stay, but due to low price it has a good value.”

      I counted 9 posters in my room informing about things that a guest can not do and penelties for violations. It had a feel of some prisoner camp because of it. Additionally in my $12/night room there was some pricey music equipment wrapped also in a poster informing about penalties for destroying it. That kinda looked out of place. Big plus is the quiet location with perfect view of the beach and ocean sunrises.

      Reviewed August 26, 2018

      hi kacper , thanks for the review , but without signs we would have more problems with breakages and people not wanting to pay for damage , it limits the risk , you will be surprised how many people try to get away with not paying for things they break ,how would you like it if someone puts a glass of water on top of an expensive sound system in your house only to knock it off when drunk and destroy it ,and then say we did not know we would have to pay for repair ? its easier to let people know the rules via signs , then there is no questions if they break it or lose a room key , most of our signs are general information telling you check out , turn off the air con , no smoking ,kitchen times , no drugs , etc and rules about our pool table ,there are only 2 decent tables in the north and one of those is ours , we are protecting our things for other guests to use , in a country that you have to pay for everything , we think it is easier to tell people and signs are the best way !

      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.

      Although I made a midtake in booking a room without airconditioning I was very satisfied with the luxury of the 3 story building. It was well maintained and kept clean. Only disappointment was the staff when we arrived. First they had put no soap or towels in room and second we were told kitchen closed at 7pm and that they did not serve breakfast Although the place is far from main attraction [ Gen.Luna beach and cloud 9) rent a motor bike and just explore the island. Is you want to catch a trophy fish just ask for Mark and he will assure you a good adventure

      Acceptable”

      Unless you're a fishing enthusiast, I wouldn't recommend staying here. The whole place has the vibe of a dark, tired English pub, not what most people want in a tropical country. Posters on the walls of half-naked women make the whole place feel like a boy's club (and lets not even talk about the wifi password). The room itself was really big with a lovely balcony facing the ocean, but there were so many things wrong with it: main lights didn't work, bathroom door was hanging off, taps/flush were stiff from lack of cleaning, toilet seat fell off and there were stains on bed linen and towels. Plenty of nicer places to stay in Pacifico!
