We are last minute travelers. Luckily, we were able to book a room at Reef Beach Resort in Siargao Island the day before checking in! Booking online through Expedia was easy and their follow up was quick even though I was mainly communicating via Facebook messenger.
Much like any other destination island in the Philippines, it's best to arrange transfer from the airport to your hotel or resort. We were able to schedule a van pick-up through Reef Beach and the driver was safe and reliable.
Upon arriving at the resort, we were greeted with my name on the board and the cutest dogs! They accompanied us during the rest of our stay and made sure to keep watch anytime we ate at the restaurant ;)
We arranged a private island hopping trip through the front desk and their staff drove us to the market to buy food and to the dock where our boatman was waiting for us.
When is Siargao, it is best to get around in scooters or motorcycles. Almost everyone rides it on the island and you can get everywhere you need to using them. We rented one at the resort for PHP 400/day.
We ate most of our breakfasts and dinners at the resort because it was more convenient because we were sick most of our stay and didn't want to go out for meals. It was also raining for part of our vacation so eating in the resort just made more sense. From classic Filipino dishes to American basics, all the food we ordered was great!
Siargao is a chill, laid-back island and Reef Beach Resort mirrored that vibe with their shabby-chic design, comfortable rooms, and friendly staff. We enjoyed our 3-night stay and will definitely book there again.
