Just a brilliantly relaxing trip from the moment we were picked up in the Dedon Bus at Siargao airport to the private airport waiting room on the return trip,via the surfing, snorkelling, sunbathing and exploring in between.
Sean and his team manage your time fantastically, with the boat trip to Sohoton caves a stunning highlight - like the caves you can kayak through off Thailand, but with none of the people, crystal clear water and about 50 times bigger all done on a Dedon paddle board.
The surf instructors at Cloud 9 are great, but make sure you make it clear what you want out of the experience - are you a first timer just looking to get on a board in the small waves out the front, or a semi-competent novice who wants to test themselves in some of the medium sized stuff on the Quicksilver break - you'll be dependant on currents and tides as well as they'll take no risks with your safety.
The resort itself is magical, planned to perfection, like coming back home after a day of activities. The staff are as friendly, helpful and accommodating as you could wish for, and the food is great. I'd go back in an instant.
