We have recently returned from a wonderful week at Sagana resort enjoying the amazing hospitality of Gerry, Susan and the team, and everything that the island of Siargao has to offer.
My gf and I stayed in unit 5 and enjoyed the mod-cons that it has for a couple sans kids such as air-con as it was very hot when we were there in June. We peeked at the other units (as they were empty) which are more authentic and look perfect for families with kids or a group of 3 or more.
The location right on Cloud 9 beach can not be beaten and listening to Gerry's advice I was the first on the water to catch the first waves of the day each day we were there. You can see the waves from the resort so can time your surfs around the tides and crowds as needed. My gf was a beginner and Cloud 9 is one of those breaks that can cater for all levels. Hiring a stand-up paddle board from next door to ride the waves at sunset was also a highlight.
We took the full package which included all meals and the other couple staying at the resort who didn't do so were definitely regretting having to find alternative food which could not match our Melbourne-restaurant quality food at each sitting, sourced and explained personally by Gerry or Susan.
As it is a small family run resort, it feels like a home-stay as they are never far away to offer advice on what activities to do if you feel so inclined and are happy to organise a scooter to hire, a boat driver, airport transfers and even pack a packed lunch for you on your adventures. It's sustainable as Sagana use local providers who you pay directly for their services and they don't take a cut which was very important to us.
We'll definitely be back another time when the waves are bigger later in the year and my skills are a little better. I was having Siargao withdrawals today back at work!
