White Sands Paradise Beach Resort
Ranked #14 of 42 Siargao Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

Gorgeous beaches, cute villages and lovely waterfalls. The resort is sublime! Rooms are gorgeous, food is fantastic and the beer is dirt cheap! Can't go wrong with this place. Alan and Cecile are absolutely wonderful and will show you a great time. Great waves around to, guys.

Yes a brilliant stay. Views of the pacific ocean are spectacular as set in its own bay, very peaceful, quiet and unspoilt.
Try getting up about 6am just before sun rise walking a dozen or so paces into the sea for a swim, ( the bay is protected from the sea by a reef so you can literally walk out for close on 3/4 mile in shallow clear blue water) then some very decent and reasonably priced breakfast at about 7.30, Follow with a short sleep then a visit to the now well renowned 'bollox bar'. Alan and Ces are very helpful and accomodating as are the few local dedicated staff they employ. All food is freshly cooked, try philippino food or burgers and the freshly caught fish is fantastic. Only downside is I had to come back to the UK. But when work permits and to coin a phrase from a very well known movie 'I'll be back' or to be precise we will be back.

This was our second trip to Siargao to stay with Ces and Alan. The first trip was great and this one was better. We planned to do some touring this trip but we never left the resort. We ate bucket loads of flying fish, crabs and Mahi Mahi. We swam and lay on the wonderful beach each day. We partied every night. Oh we had such fun and came back so well rested. Perfect. Thank you so much Al and Ces!

Absolutely bang on joint! had a blast there. Cecile and Alan are the consummate hosts, very welcoming and affable.

Beautiful location right on the beach, very tranquil, remote for peace and quiet but still close enough to any required amenities.

Room rates are more than reasonable, the restaurant food is excellent. I definitely recommend the Bollox Burger which is not only delicious big also very generously sized. Beers are cheap and they certainly serve the purpose - especially the Red Horse!

Good pool/billiards table, I look forward to our rematch Alan. Not sure if I'll get on the Red Horse or not!

Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning again myself.

Decided to stay here for our trip to Siargao as wanted a more quieter area than General Luna, however not so far to travel from General Luna, glad we made the right decision, stayed in the luxury beachfront room, and the views are amazing and so nice to wake up to a beautiful white sandy beach.

Our stay was comfortable as there as aircon and satellite tv, there is also internet as the owner's have an ipad to use,

The food is really good, and is at a reasonable price along with drinks. And the service is good.

The owners Cecile and Alan are very welcoming, they made sure we enjoyed our stay with them and are fun and easy to get along with, there is a bar with a pool table which is a nice place to relax when too hot as you get a lovely breeze from the beach.

I will be coming here again if I return for another trip to the island, it really made our holiday,

Thanks again.

My wife and I recently returned from our second trip to Siargao and we stayed with Al and Ces at the White Sands both times. The setting is great, right on the beach and Al and Ces have made us feel so comfortable we regard this as almost our second home. So much space and what a view!

Thankfully Siargao is still a bit off the grid and the Bollox Bar is a place where you can meet some of the wonderful characters on the Island. If Hemmingway were still alive, this is undoubtedly where he would hang out on the Island. This is an ideal place, right on the beach, to simply chill or to whoop up a party. Al doesn't drink at all but he forms the main entertainment, which usually centers around the pool table. To be sure, Al is quite boastful about his ability with the cue but I am sure I could beat him if I could just stop drinking.

The food is top notch. Ces is a great cook. This trip we had a lobster caught by a local off the reef right out front. The burgers and steaks are great, and super cheap. The beer is ice cold and the cheapest I could find on the Island. I saw someone on here complaining about having to pay 45 pesos for a San Mig? You what?

We always stay at the luxury villa right on the beachfront. It is clean and comfortable. It has good aircon and a decent bathroom. The beach out front is great for a morning swim. The other rooms are more basic but also nice and clean.

If you are looking for a place to chill or to party with great company, this is the place that suits us best. My wife had a great time there and struck a real chord with Ces, just like I did with Alan. If you like real people, enjoy a laugh and good cheap food and accommodation, this is the place for you. Its a magic place.

Room Tip: Go for the luxury beachfront. Its still cheap.
