Reviewed 1 March 2014

Just spent 5 days here, the staff are great and the place is amazing. Great value for money and the food was wonderful. It's right on the beach, with easy access to learn to surf, standup paddle board or Kitesurfing. Whatever your water sport I think you can do it here, or you could just chill.

At greenhouse the food is cooked for you, using ingredients from the local market.

I will be back as soon as possible.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was perfect from the welcome to the rest. The food was excellent, the service was more than we could have asked for, and not having to lift a finger was priceless.

We needed to get away and rest and that is what we got.

There was absolutely nothing more for us to wish for. We are so glad we came and we will be back.

Greenhouse is gorgeous. our little family of three had everything we needed. The villas, the location, the meals, the motorbikes we hired, the boat trips - all good. We've returned home and tried to replicate the tuna parcels we were served there. We'll be back some day to Siargao Island. Cheers to James for showing my husband & son how to get to Salvacions surf spot. Cheers to Keiko for taking us all out to Daco and cheers to everyone for telling us about other spots and how to get there. Also special mention to Jolie who gives fantastic massages. Thanks Andrew, Keiko and James!

We stayed in the Greenhouse in December and had a fantastic stay. The owners Andrew, James and Keiko made us feel very welcome and showed us a great time organising daily surf trips around the island for us, bike hire, nights out etc. The cabins are right on the beach, overlooking the bay and the surf, and are perfect for relaxing or getting active! They are approximately 10-15 minutes walk from the cloud nine boardwalk, and a short boat trip from a multitude of great surf spots.

The food is fresh / delicious and served with a friendly smile, and the mini bar is topped up daily to make sure you're never short of a beer when you've finished for the day and have returned to the cabin to relax.

All in all a great place to stay and we hope to visit again.

We stayed here for a week end of December into New Years. It is the rainy season here but we still had enough sun and clear days to get out and do some great activities like kayaking, surfing, and diving. Andrew & Keiko are welcoming, friendly hosts who either organised or put us in touch with people for the activities we wanted to do while here. They also hire motorbikes to get around on, something we didn't do but in hindsight will do in future. But if you just want to relax then this is the place to do it as well, with the yoga studio by the sea, hammocks and loungers under thatch umbrellas, massages available and super-healthy, yummy food served on the spacious verandah off your room. Recommend the rice paper vegie rolls with satay sauce along with the 'banana oh' dessert. The rooms are comfortable with a spacious verandah area that is set up as a lounge with a corner couch and coffee table. There are also thoughtful touches like the wooden clothes airer to dry wet gear and the outdoor shower at back to rinse off after being at the beach. I really liked how the surroundings were landscaped with garden and also a large grass area dotted with coconut palms in front of the beach. Location is great as not far to Cloud 9 or the other surf breaks, especially if you rent a bike as well as the main village and other eateries if you want to eat off site. This is a real gem of a place that we would love to come back to.

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach frontage will get the sea breezes

It usually takes a couple of days to relax on holidays, my boyfriend and I said to each other on the first day we were already there. This is the place we've been looking for; awesome beaches, great surf, chilled out beachside yoga, beautiful fresh and tasty food and our own comfortable, spacious sanctuary. The staff became friends who took us out on new journeys every day, the vibe was relaxed and fun. We can't wait to go back and take our friends and family with us. The Greenhouse is what we've been looking for and despite many worldwide a adventures, not found till we arrived here!

You can't emagine better place. Peaceful, quiet. All beachfront houses connect you to the ocean. The service is perfect. Rooms clean & fridge stuffed with cool drinks. Great food served to your own verandas. They have their own boat which takes yoou to the surfing spots. Variety of highest quality surf boards to rent as well. Andrew, Keiko, Julieta, James - are smiling people who will host you like a part of family! Worth mentioning is help of local surfguides with JunJun on the top. He will be helpful all the time in the water giving right advise. Me personaly love the advise he gives all the time: "relax. relax your body and mind. just stay relaxed." and of course "paddle! paddle! paddle hard!". Will come back to Greenhouse for sure! One love guys!
