Our stay at Buddha Surf Resort was nothing but perfect. The vibe here is very chill and easy-going. We immediately felt at home in Siargao because of the warm welcome of Buddha's staff. Room: The room that we stayed in was good for 2 but the entire area was very spacious. The design is simple but home-y. We had a...

When I checked in, I was informed that their solar power water heater was broken and that there is NO hot shower. They said they are trying to get it fixed but never did.I was there for 3 days/2 nights. The room is pretty big but super basic. If you like your room comfortable, feeling homey, then this place is...

We thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Our hot water is solar powered, and in the event that there is no sun for 2 days or more, this requires a backup heater element. Unfortunately, during your stay this broke down, and the replacement had to come from Manila, along with the technician to install it. As...

My husband and I stayed in Buddha surf resort for 5 days and I should say that the food, management and the staff were very nice and accommodating. It was our first time in Siargao and it was very memorable. They serve affordable and very good food. We can't get enough of the Mahi mahi fish fingers, beef burger and...

We stayed there for 5 nights and enjoyed a lot. The owner and the managers were really nice and helpful and we had great surf sessions with them! They rent motorbikes and surfboards for cheap price and arrange amazing day trips with great lunch. We will definitely stay there next time we visit Siargao!

Stayed here three times now on surf trips, cannot beat the community they help foster on the island. Great food, great community, great hosts (Gwil, Chris and Ash) The food is great, they hook you up with great surf guides and you really feel a part of the General Luna Siargao family when you are there

The property itself was nice, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. There were a couple issues with the hot water and other minor things, but they were resolved and/or worked around. Our hosts Becky and Chris and their staff were fantastic. They took care of us with motorbikes, surf and snorkel equipment, airport transfers, boat trips and everything else...

A group of friends visited Siargao for the first time. We came for the surf and the water activities but fell in love with the island and the people.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in November. It was such an amazing base to explore Siargao from and equally an awesome chill spot to spend a day or two doing nothing.
