Unfortunately, I didn't even get to stay. I had planned to book a retreat package, including a room two months in advance but faced difficulties getting in touch with the venue. Despite trying through various platforms like Facebook Messenger, email, and Instagram DM, I received no response. Finally, I managed to contact someone (presumably the owner) through WhatsApp, but even then, they were often unresponsive. After agreeing to a package, I never received a confirmation email despite reaching out multiple times. Later, I discovered that the room was given to someone else, one week before I was scheduled to arrive, because they claimed I didn't respond to an email that I never received. During the conversation on WhatsApp, I presented my thoughts with confidence. However, the owner seemed to have taken offense to my tone and dismissed me without considering my point of view. I was excited to spend my first trip to Siargao at Soultribe and even planned to come back during the non-rainy season. Unfortunately, it seems that I won't have the opportunity to visit anymore, as I don't think the owner would ever welcome me after this experience.

Response from tracy heath, Owner at Soultribe Beach Retreat
Responded Oct 12, 2023
Phongsiya, we are not surprised that you have gone out of your way to try and bring down our review scores even though you did not stay at Soultribe. After providing you with a complimentary upgrade for your offered package and agreeing on dates and custom inclusions we sent 2 x emails with payment details and a follow up explaining the room would be made available for other bookings if no payment was received. We received NO response or payment to secure your reservation. After you finally reached out we were indeed fully booked and worked on finding a solution to the situation for 4 HOURS back and forth on watsapp. Every suggestion we made for solving the issue was met with insults and complaints as well as accusations that we had contacted you. Following a lengthly attempt to rectify the situation and multiple attempts to communicate with you in a respectable manner it was clear you were not interested in finding a solution and we therefore wished you a wonderful stay in Siargao. With regard to welcoming you to Soultribe, we made all efforts to be kind and courteous and to indeed welcome you to Soultribe however there comes a point where our tolerance for disrespect, aggression and insults will be exasperated and we will simply wish you well as we do not accept guests at our establishment that behave this way towards any or our team. Again we wish you a wonderful stay in Siargao despite your actions and attitude towards our establishment.

We stayed for 4 nights and everything was perfect. The owners (Tracy and Kyle), really made things easy and well organized for us. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. Cabanas are perfect for couples and always clean. We really enjoyed our stay. We can’t wait to go back to Siargao and stay again at SOULTRIBE.

This resort has plenty to offer- a quiet white sand beach, great accommodations and hosts, friendly staff, and tasty meals. It’s a few minutes away from General Luna but it’s the distance that makes the world of difference. Tracy and Kyle are fantastic! Hope to be sooner than later.

We stayed here for a week. We requested to stay at cabana 1 because of the sea view. However, it was booked for three days so they checked us in at cabana 4 and transferred us to cabana 1 for the rest of the week. We had a relaxing stay at Soultribe for a week but here are the things that we think should get fixed/improved. - Foul odor of the water from the faucet and shower - Shower - low water pressure and showerhead needs to be replaced - Old pillow covers - We find it uncomfortable to sleep bec the foams used are for single bed and they just put it together to make it look like it’s king sized. Sometimes we end up sleeping in the middle of two foam beds. - Bed sheets with holes and stains - Black ants on the toilet bowl EVERYDAY. (Cabana 1 &4) - AC is not working properly. It’s hot at night even when it’s already at 16 deg - Price is too much considering that it is not in General Luna - No breakfast included. (They have breakfast menu with few options.) - Wifi signal is limited. ***Also, we felt a vibe that the owner doesn’t treat or entertain guests equally. There was a time when she was talking to a group of foreigners (btw she’s not a Filipino) and we tried to mingle but the way she talked to us was different. After a few minutes, she acted like we weren’t there and continued talking to the other guests. She doesn’t even smile when you bump into her anywhere at Soultribe. Anyway, I would still recommend this place if you are looking for a place to gather your thoughts and keep your mind at peace. They have courteous staff that would attend to your needs. Thank you to Nicole who checked us in smoothly. They clean the rooms daily. Paddle boards are free to use. Since we stayed there for a week, they charged us for the rent of a motor bike for 350/day which was supposed to be 400php/day. They conduct community dinners twice a week and you could also invite friends but it’s 750php per pax.

Response from Tracy Heath, Owner at Soultribe Beach Retreat
Responded Jul 31, 2020
Hi there Lhexie, Thank you for taking time to review our retreat, we are so pleased that you had a relaxing stay with us and we appreciate your suggestions on improvements. As feedback we are happy to let you know that we have installed a large water purification system to remove unwelcome 'ground water' odours which only recent to your stay had started to develop. Our water supply has always complied with safety standards as per our water permit certificate. All of your other points have been addressed with staff and management as we strive to provide the best experience possible for our guests. I would like to address your comment on my guest interaction in particular as it is something we stand strongly for. I apologise if you felt you did not get the same attention as some of our other guests however your reference to race and racial profiling is not acceptable. To be profiled in this manner ( as well as our other visitors ) is not tolerated in our establishment. Soultribe is a place where everyone is seen as a valued guest irrelevant of their race or country of birth. We appreciate that you would recommend Soultribe Beach Retreat and we will continue to do our best to provide all of our guests with a welcoming and warm stay. Yours Sincerely Tracy & the Soultribe Team

We booked SoulTribe Retreat for its good reviews. And actually when we arrived there we are overwhelmed by the beautiful ambiance. It feels like we are in the middle of the jungle doing camping. Our glamping tent is amazing 😉. Toilets and shower rooms are for sharing and its okey since its clean. You can see drinking water dispenser everywhere in the resort. There are some concerns that i need to share for those who are planning to book in the resort. Anyway, thank you for accommodating us for 3 nights. Pos: Glamping tent is good Cozy ambiance Daily make up room Cons: 1. Water from the faucet smells like mud/canal and it stays with your body for a long period of time 2. Community Dinner service we avail is incomplete. And we didn’t hear any explanation from the staff the reason. If its about the weather, i believe the weather is good enough to have a bonfire. -no bonfire -no marshmallow 3. Our outdoor chair suddenly disappear. If the staff use it then they should ask permission from us. The next morning i asked the staff to have it back to us and she did. 4. Misinformation- why? When we arrived at the resort the staff in charge in the reception area said that they don’t have a shower heater, and for the past 2 days of our stay no heater at all and on our 3rd day after the tour we took shower and we are surprised that the shower actually has a heater 🤔 Overall its okey to stay in this resort.

We loved the location of SoulTribe - just out of the centre of General Luna and away from the hustle and bustle. The beach is pretty and the addition of SUP boards to use for free at high tide is a nice touch. Our Cabana was lovely, the bed was comfortable and the view onto the sea was lovely. The resort is light up like a Christmas tree at night so don't expect the rooms to be pitch black. I'd be pretty annoyed having Cabana 3/4 as they a closer to the road which might disturb people. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed the menu. Breakfast was fresh and delicious (it would be better if it was included in the room price) and lunch was fantastic. The veg curry was excellent, Adobo chicken very impressive, the hummus very good indeed! The staff in the kitchen brilliant, housekeeping brilliant and the majority of the front of house staff were lovely too. That said one lady who wore a bucket hat wasn't the most friendly and needs to be a bit more approachable! The most irritating thing was the noise from road works and the constant repetitive must from a local building site. It was horrible. The music started at 0530 and finished at 2300. It was always the same songs on repeat and was really disruptive....I was considering giving our stay 3 stars because of that but its not the venues fault! Overall it was a nice stay, a bit pricey but lovely for a few nights.

I stayed in one of the tents for 4 nights and it was very loud due to road construction until very late in the evening (10PM and later). The street is going right through the resort, so you can hear everything. I was not informed of the construction beforehand and they would not let me check out earlier with a refund. As I did not want to pay double I stayed. The bed in the tent is standard asian length, so for my 1.7m it was too short. In my oppinion the tent is also rather small if you stay longer. There is no place to put or hang your stuff. It is nicely decorated and the tents and surroundings are very clean and tidy. The outdoor shower is nice but the toilets and the water stink. The beach is super nice and there are literally no other people besides the guests and few locals. It’s mostly couples and less the community they promote. Yes, everyone is hanging around in the communal area, but only because you don’t have any place to chill by your tent. It’s a bit far off from everything so you either need to rent a scooter or organizie transport to get around. General Luna is about a 10min drive. If I would stay here again, it would only be in a Cabana, and then just the one in the very front. Because you can see inside the cabanas from the commmunal area. In my oppinion it’s not worth the money. It’s ok but not worth the money. I stayed in much nicer places for less. It was not the relaxing and special experience I was hoping for.

Soultribe is just perfect! Its location is perfect, the staff are so friendly, the cabanas are in great condition, it's like being in Paradise. We had a lovely Community Dinner on our first night there and it was delicious. From your cabana you can hear all the nature sounds and expect to be woken up by a roaster at some point during the night, but I can't complaint. You can rent bikes with them and go around the amazing island of Siargao. We had some issues with our flights as we were stuck on another island for 2 days because of weather conditions and ended up staying for only 1 night instead of 3 - I was extremely disappointed for still having to pay for the full stay due to the circumstances, and would have appreciated some understanding from your side as we had extra charges added to our holiday.
