Reviewed 12 February 2014

Im impressed, just by walking in I found this place in january, the staff got me;) New built, fresh and very clean I fell for it. Small place with a few bungalowes, all in old style roof and hardwood, aircon or fan, pick your choice. Beds, bathroom, everything was very stylish and neat, breakfast great and staff extremley service minded.High class but still very affordably, we loved it from the first sight, will highly recommend this great place to anybody, singeltraveler, family, couple and more, it suits anyone. It's close to the very cool place cloud 9 but you still have the choice of calmness, relaxation and quitness on the vacation. And if you want to surf it's the perfect place to stay. A couple of surfers, a family or just some friends travelling. Villa solaria will be a great choice for everyone !

Awesome nipa hut style rooms that were clean and new! I got the package deal that came with room and half board (breakfast and dinner). The breakfast was buffet style, and the dinner you got to choose earlier in the day and it was ready for you at your desired time. All the food was delishhh, and trust me, you won't go hungry! The staff was extremely friendly and laid back. If you have a chance to go to Siargao Island, check this place out...

We found Villa Solaria because we loved Siargao so much that we let our flight go to waste and booked a new flight 3 days later. Since we couldn't stay in our previous accommodation, we just walked up the road towards Cloud 9 and stopped at Villa Solaria to ask for a room. The staff was super nice from the beginning on and so we decided to stay there. No regrets! The rooms were wonderful: very large and very clean. Unfortunately we never had the chance to try out having dinner there since we always had arranged meetings with other travelers, but it looked very good and the French fries we had for lunch one day were home-made and just delicious. Also, room rates were much cheaper than in all other resorts that we had had a look at before.

Another advantage of Villa Solaria is that it's very close to the Cloud 9 surfing spot and you can easily walk there with a surf board. Walking to General Luna is not that easy but still possible if you are patient ;) Or just get a motor-bike.

Having just returned to Cebu I could not think of a better place to stay close to the famous Cloud 9! It is basically mid way between General Luna and 9.
The villas are brand new and are well designed for two or four. i had an aircon room but i reckon you could just go fan being so close to the sea. Manuella your host is very knowledgable and kind. Her staff are simply the best and always wear big smiles. If your a surfer, this place is great it's a short walk to the less crowded and always pumping Tuason left and a scoot to 9.
Food is to die for thanks to the talented Kat Kat and overal this place is excellent.

Stayed in August 2013 on the island and had the great pleasure to experience the completely new Villa Solaria. It is central, in walking distance to Cloud 9 but a cosy place to relax and enjoy. Manuela and her team are big fun to be with and create a personal, very welcoming atmosphere. The food prepared by CatCat is just great, worth to remember!! In summary: A great place to be!!

It was very hard to leave this new resort on beautiful Siargao after a week. I stayed in a great cottage, was welcomed and well looked after by the owner and staff. The food in the restaurant was exceptional.The uncrowded waves at Tuason Point are only a short walk and paddle away. Great value. The only problem was having to leave.
