“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

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.

Greenhouse, Andrew, Keiko, Juliette and Blackie are the most fantastic hosts you could wish for. The absolute highlight of our holiday in the Philippines was the two stays we had at Greenhouse. This place is heaven. It is a tranquil oasis that offers the perfect stay. The private Chefs are amazing, preparing delicious meals. Andrew, Keiko and Juliette go out of there way to make sure that you get to the best surf breaks, see the most amazing places and arrange everything that you need The resort offers private bungalow accommodation and they are designed in such a way that you do not even see the other guests or bungalows. The bungalows are literally on the beach. All transport is arranged from the Airport or Dapa. Next time I come to the Philippines this will be the only place I need to go. I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: All bungalows are perfect. If you want kitchen facilities select Bungalow 3.

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
