We stayed in what they call the family room. It has a very comfortable king size bed and a sitting area with a sofa and tv. There are a few cable channels on the tv. The website states you can cook in the shared kitchen. But there is no room in the fridge to put food. It is full of...

We had an amazing stay at turtle surf camp. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the manager Enrique is a nice person treating you like family. Whenever we had a question regarding waves, spots or issues with our motorbikes he was reachable and supportive. The surf lessons are provided by locals as in any other place on Siargao so...

I had no idea what to expect on my first trip to Siargao. I was traveling solo too. Not only is the place very comfortable and chill, but Lili was the best guide ever. She showed me around the island, introduced me to people and suggested places to check out. I would recommend Turtle Surf Camp to laid back travelers...

Lilia and Enrike are unbelievably welcoming and great people. We experienced dengue fever whilst been to Siargao, so we had to travel to hospital which reduced our stay in turtles for 4 days so both of them were really understanding and we never paid those days by their good will, which I'll always remember. The rooms were tidy and so...

It was great to spend some time in this resort. The stuff is very nice and helpful and the facilities are very good. The kitchen and chill out area with the swimming pool are very pleasant. The location is perfect. I would definitely recommend this place!

We stayed for several nights with my boyfriend in turtle surf camp and must say we both were disappointed by the experience. Although the place itself is nice and small and the manager was nice with us, don't expect to sleep well and rest since all day until 1am you will enjoy (or not!) the music from the bar next...
