Even if it’s world-famous as the surfing capital of the Philippines, Siargao appeals not just to surfers but also to every type of traveler all year round.
Because of this, Siargao resorts cater to different budgets as well, with accommodations ranging from cheap hostels with bunk beds to luxurious villas in five-star hotels. Whatever you can afford, you can absolutely find a beach resort in Siargao that fits your budget and preference.
Check out these top-rated Siargao resorts (all coincidentally located in the vibrant beach town of General Luna) that suit every budget.
This budget Siargao hostel is a back-to-basics accommodation for solo backpackers and pairs of friends who’d love to make new friends while on vacation. It’s just a 5-minute walk from the beach and a quick motorcycle ride from Cloud 9, the famous surfing wave on Siargao.
Instead of private rooms, Paglaom offers single bunk beds at less than PHP 500 per night (for a minimum stay of five nights) in mixed dormitory rooms. Guests can cook their own food in Paglaom’s large kitchen.
Fun activities such as surfing lessons, cooking lessons, and island hopping are organized for people to bond with other guests. Environment advocates may even join an hour of beach cleanup or recycling project for free.
Families with kids will have to look elsewhere, as the hostel accepts only guests 18 years old and above.
