Stayed for 4 nites late March/14, nothing to complain about room wise except the security...there was no deadbolt on the inside, only the keylock. I'm an experienced traveler and so at night I pushed a heavy carved stool against the door as well on the night in question I stood my sandals to dry against it. On the 4th morning as I got up & looked at the door I noticed the stool was pushed back about 10-12 inches, the sandals knocked over and the door was unlocked (but closed).
Someone with a key had unlocked the door during the night and pushed it open! I keep my valuables locked away and it looks like they didn't come in as luck would have it, but very unnerving as you could imagine.
I talked with the owner and he did show concern as well as mentioned he security had chased someone off the property during the night although in my 4 nites there I never saw anyone that looked like security on the premises. He mentioned he was in the process of beefing security and had a box of deadbolts to be installed. Hopefully he gets on that right away. He also said Siargao is getting busy with lots of (Filipino) outsiders there now, I agree with that, many new resorts going up along the beach on the way to Cloud 9 since my last visit 3 years ago.
All that said, it is the best beach in the General Luna area and with more security I would recommend it. Watch out as others mention below about that 5% service charge and tip accordingly.
