I reserved the room during a sale from Agoda. I wanted to stay there since it was featured in the Siargao movie. The location is quite far from the busy part of General Luna but so near a public beach and Cloud 9. I loved their bunk beds, though it needs to improve its ventilation. Overall, it's worth my money.
Perfect place for groupies, families or solo travelers. We got to nipa hut type since we're 3. You can actually stretch in 4-5 pax with this type of room. This is okay except that it runs out of water at night til 6am. Make sure to do your thing before the water shortage. The location is perfect, close to all restos and to the beach. Scooter is not a problem, there are roaming guys who will offer you their bikes for rent. Will surely come back soon. Went here during a marathon. The activity is just fine, its just that Runrio lacks photographers and we didnt even see a single photo of us or the event itself. Also, the marathon starts too late, we struggle with too much heat. Other than that, the campaign to use our own water bottle is great! Too organized, a lot of men in uniform secured the event.
Ena from Philippines”
Overall, I'm happy that i chose to stay in Villa Solaria. the place was generally clean and staff were super friendly and very welcoming.
PROs: Common Space Free use of kitchen and fridge Restaurant - expensive food though Clean restroom Free cabinet - bring your own padlock Early check-in Close to Harana Bar and 5-10 min walk to Cloud9 CONs: Spotty wifi Lots of mosquitoes No water after 10pm I think you’ll find better accommodation nearby.
i upgraded my room to 1BR from bunk beds and paid the changes upon arrival but when i was checking out they forbid me saying i still need to pay the difference. I tried so hard and many times explained the situation to the staff but all she was saying was that per their manager i still did not pay it. They could have already validated it when i showed them my receipt that it was already paid and i couldn't have faked it. Also, they should have called the receptionist in charged when i paid during the 1st day and not almost make me late on my flight.
One Of Siargao's Very Budget-friendly Hotel With A Very Convenient Location ”
Definitely a good choice for those who are traveling on their own. I got to meet a lot of people during my stay here. A lot of tourists encounter lack of water supply and even having to deal with a power outage, but luckily, during my stay in Villa Solaria, I did not experience any of these inconveniences. Be reminded though that their front desk does not run for 24 hours so, should you have a really, really late check-in, it's best to inform them ahead of time. The location is also very strategic as it's right in the middle of GL's best food finds and nightlife. Right across it is Aventino's Pizza and Pasta and is in the middle of Harana and Siargao Bleu which has really, really good food and drinks.
Booked in at the dorm style, shared bedroom. Bed is so-so, the only pillow provided is severely crushed already. There's a ceiling fan, but the wind from it barely reaches the bed because of the mosquito net and the blanket for privacy, which blocks the wind which makes it slightly uncomfortable You're lucky if you get one of the beds near the wall fan. That seems to be a more effective ventilation. Overall, not so bad.
5 min on foot to Cloud 9 and others surf spots. They rent boards for 300 or recommending other places to do that. Wifi was not working all the time, but this is the place to surf not to browse. Cheers!
Great Place to Stay in Siargao”
Location is good, I love the interior, the beds are nice, you can cook your food for free. Restroom is ok and clean, water is also ok, theres a fridge you can store your food. Few minutes walk to Cloud9 and along the road. rating? 9 stars.
Villa Solaria Resort Hostel/Hotel what a amazing place to stay at”
What amazing hostel just want to say thank you to all the staff and the owner Pal Martensson of Villa Solaria Resort. Villa Solaria Resort is for all ages I would recommended it definitely to stay at this hostel. If you don't mind sharing rooms you can do that or if you want a private room they have that facility as well. One thing about Villa Solaria Resort I like it feels like you are at home and it is only 5 mins from Cloud 9 the surfing area. If you want to hire a motorbike they can help you or if you want to do anything they are very friendly and helpful to help to organise your trip. Siar Gao Island is amazing Island when I got there I felt like I was at home I cannot explain that you need to go there and see it for yourself. I haven’t stayed in a hostel since I was 22 years old and I am now 42 years old and I can say Villa Solaria Resort was amazing place to stay and I met some great new friends from Villa Solaria Resort as well. Just want to say again thank you to all the staff and the owner Pal Martensson they was amazing and I will see you again next year.
Good value for money”
The owner is very kind. He welcomed me when I arrived. He was also at the reception area when I left at 4AM. The common area is spacious for socialisation. You can do a lot of things with other travelers. It has a kitchen area for cooking. Wifi is working (only at the dining area). The only problem I had was the smoking habit of other travelers near the bunk bed area because the smell of cigarette is not good when you are trying to fall asleep. Though there are signages telling them where to smoke, they still were doing it near the bunk bed areas. I think that the owner or the staff ensure to remind the guests to smoke only at designated areas. Overall, I am satisfied with my stay. And I can definitely recommend it to my friends and other travelers.
Villa Solaria is a great place for Solo travellers. Thought I'll be lonely since it's my first time travelling alone but no, it was the opposite. I met new friends, thanks to their common area! The owner is very nice, you can talk to him about Siargao and other stuffs. Solaria is a walking distance from Cloud 9 so you can save money for paying the habal-habal. You can cook at their kitchen and get hot water for free for your coffee. Overall, I'm happy that I chose Villa Solaria. Thanks Paul and staff for my wonderful stay.
Very comfortable stay”
We were not able to get the room we booked because there were a lot of guests that time. Sir Pal had to check and consider other options. Fortunately he found a great room for all of us and we had a comfortable place to spend 5 nights. We just had to endure 2 nights of water supply shortage but the villa managed to provide enough gallons of water so we can all take a decent bath, etc. it's a great place to stay in Siargao, i promise! 🙂
It is very accessible to Cloud9 and to General Luna.. The staff are super friendly and very welcoming. though the facility especially the water is not always functional. It is good value for a good stay.
Good for a short stay”
Its near cloud 9 but far from the food center in GL. Expensive for tricycle rides. The water was turned off during the night so u cant wash up after u have ur night out. I recommend to cut out some plants in the surrounding area of the cottage for better view of the place and some fresh air to come in. In the 2nd floor of the cottage we booked was so hot coz the aircon cant reach the area, so we decided to put the mattress in the floor downstairs. Pros, paul was very accommodating and fun to talk to. Overall we enjoyed our stay in siargao! Only that pls improve villa solaria for better experience. Thank u!
I booked online. They confirmed. We arrived on feb 15,2019 and our reserved cottage was taken. ”
My group came from new zealand, dubai and batangas just to see siargao. But villa solaria failed us. Not recommended to all..
4 nights stay in Villa Solaria - Bungalow for 5pax”
4 nights stay in Villa Solaria - Bungalow for 5pax Value for money - There are three AC in bungalow and two electric fans. However, all of them cannot be opened at the same time. The power will be short and it will cause the electricity to restart or shutdown. Hot shower is available but sometimes the water is off or not available. Also, shared kitchen can be access near reception. An additional fee for cooking will be charged if you heat and/or cook your own meal. Mug and hot water in dispenser is free. Location - Location is great but no access to beach. You need to go to harana beside villa solaria to access beach at the back. Cleanliness - When we arrived our room is clean, rest room and second floor. Staff - Xoxo. Nothing much to say since I have no interaction other than paying my agoda balance at the reception. Facilities - It is great, we used the mugs and their got hot water from water dispenser provided near reception for free.
Nice, basic, cheap and close to Cloud 9.
Place is generally clean and staff are helpful. Location is also awesome and everything is pretty much accessible from in here. Plus, it's a great place to make friends with other travellers 💕
Surfer's Paradise in Siargao. 😃🌴”
I stayed here for 5D4N for a project. The place is so cool! 😎 It's like a secret garden in Siargao. I stayed in one of their bunk beds and it's a good experience. My 1st time to travel alone and stayed in a hostel. Tho they have very nice AC bungalows but I rather choose the bunks for "surfer experience." PROS: ✔ location - very near to cloud 9, 5min walk is NOT that bad for health 🏃 ✔ value for money - stayed in one of their bunk beds and it's a great experience👌 ✔ crew - one of the friendliest people I met 🙏 ✔ booze - always have a beer ready 🍻 ✔ cozy - the main common area is a good place to meet and chat with other guests. You can also cook your own food on their guest's kitchen. ✔ owner - friendly and cool owner 😎 CONS: ⚠upgrade - needs to upgrade their showers and toilets. ⚠repair - need to repair their roof for leaks, tho it's only for some part of the common area Overall, I would recommend this place for a great stay in Siargao! I will definitely come back! 😀👋
