Fantastic! Beautiful location, great accommodation, delicious food and the staff were exceptionly friendly. Jesse will bend over backwards ti satisfy you. Great selection of waves straight out the front, or 500m down the beach at Pacifico. 10min North there's another 4 great spots at Bargos.

Stay, drop in to eat, or just hang-out, its a super friendly place in a good location and decently priced. The restaurants open 7am till 8pm-ish: Great shakes and sough-dough bread made on-site.

We stayed 4 nights. The staff are kind, helpful and honest. The place is right in front of the beach which you can enjoy with high tide. Cottages are clean (when you arrive, they don't clean during the stay, which is the normal thing happen in the Pines) and simpl but are more than okay, maybe mosquito nets could be... More

Enjoyed our stay from start to finish and we couldn't have asked for more. The staff at Bamboo were so accomodating, friendly and kind(Jessie, Jonry, Loiloi, Dongski, Lezel, Daidai and Jason) and they made our stay at Bamboo Garden comfortable and enjoyable. I can't wait to go back to Bamboo Garden resort. We miss you all. Keep up the good... More

Bamboo Garden was an amazing vacation spot! Whether you're there for four months or four days, the beaches are beautiful and separated from the crowded surf of General Luna. With boards to rent and instructors at the site, I could have spent my entire holiday just at Bamboo. Food was always fresh and delicious with lots to choose from -... More

Just got back from 3 weeks in the Phillipines, most of it @ Bamboo on Siargao. Great location in the northern part of the island, where the locals are friendlier than in GL, the surf pretty uncrowded, and very few buildings on the buko palmed beach. As a few have posted , a better option than staying down in General... More

We found this place by driving around and stayed spontaneously over night. The ocean view form the shared patio is stunning! Surfer style accommodation. I have no idea how they can serve good food for such good price at a remote place like this. They do! Friendly staff and management! Thank You! A place to travel around the world for.

Bamboo Garden is a home away from home. I booked it for two nights and regret not being able to extend my stay. I was jealous with the rest of their guests! Some of them even stayed for a month! For me, Bamboo Garden gave Siargao the best first impression the island can ever offer. I thought the reviews about... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bamboo Garden is located in Pacifico, just North of San Isidro on Siargao Island. The Island is a magnet for surfers in search of waves, with many world class breaks available. Don't despair though if surfing isn't your thing; Siargao Island is also the perfect place for a relaxing getaway, offering many other activities and sights. We offer idyllic, affordable beach front cottages that overlook a white sand beach with views across the Pacific Ocean. These can sleep 2 - 6 persons. Just a few meters away from the white sands bordering the Pacific Ocean we have an Al Fresco Bar/Restaurant where you can enjoy our varied menu catering for both Western and local tastes. Dishes include tasty home made pizzas, juicy 100% beef burgers and paninis made with every day fresh home baked bread. You can wash it all day with an ice cold beer, while taking in the amazing views. ... more   less
