I was traveling in the Philippines for a medical mission and was looking for a place to relax after volunteering and being with family. I found Siargoa and Greenhouse when I decided I wanted to surf and have a more active week (as opposed to floating through a cave or being in a party town).
I didn't know anyone who had been to Siargoa so it was a bit of a leap of faith but I couldn't have been happier. The place was even more stunning then the picutres. Andrew and Kiko were awesome hosts. They took care arranging any activities I was looking for and I did it all: surfing, stand up paddling, island hopping, deep sea fishing and massages. Each was excellent!
The part of my stay that I didn't expect was how good the food was. It was delicious! I had been on a diet of rice and brown coffee for two weeks prior and was treated to fresh, well planned meals prepared and served by their excellent chefs.
This was an ideal retreat. I traveled here as a single woman and never felt unsafe. I would love to go back for longer then a week to enjoy this piece of paradise.
