Hotel was exactly as photos show. Big room, very clean, staff welcoming. Village is super small so don't expect much. The Hotel is 20 steps from golden heavy sand beach. Reef is about 300 meters off shore so not the best place for a swim...More

Information regarding siargao and fishing is Extremely limited.. I can tell you my experience in June.. Paid 8000 pesos for the whole boat to myself and girlfriend and the trip lasted 9 hours.. I don't know if they do inshore fishing as we travelled 20 kms out into the Pacific.. The crew doesn't really speak English so it was difficult to understand what was going on. They Do know what they are doing, re trolling teasers with lures and 1 dead bait.. They locate 12 foot long bouys that are randomly positioned out there.. Whenever we encountered them there would be several local Bankas (local boats) hand lining for tuna, dorado etc. Every time we trolled past the bouys we hooked up tiny yellowfin tuna, 10 in total.. We also hooked a sizable Marlin on the deadbait but unfortunately it broke the 80 lb line soon after hookup..
Best Marlin and sailfish are March to may but I'm sure they fish yellowfin tuna etc all year..
If you want to keep updated and get advice look up (JMN big game fishing charters) on Facebook.. This is the official site for Sailfish bay resort who's owner runs the charter boat I went out on.. Best of luck..
