The Hotel Tavern is located near to the Harbour and the embarkation quay of the ferries to Srigao Island (known for surfing). The hotel has a new and an old part. I was staying in the old part. The room was clean and soberly furnished. The bath room was clean but somewhat old and exhausted. Internet connection was free, but was hardly working.
The Tavern Restaurant seems to be one of the best in Surigao. Affordable local, Western and Chinese dishes are served. Next to the hotel is an open Tavern; popular with the local folks, serving simple grilled or deep-fried food. A band plays from 08:00 PM till late deafeningly loud music. The breakfast is tailored to the local taste.
The sea promenade, which is also the acces road harbour is in front of the hotel. The road is used as overnight parking for trucks. Small stalls offer simple snacks and cheap booze.
Although the hotel is located by the sea, there is no way to swim. The tavern hotel is an alternative to the Park Hotel which is located at the airport. Guests of the hotel are mostly Filipinos or expats working in the mining companies. Surigao does not offer much to a tourist, but is mainly a transit point to Srigao Island as mentioned above.
