Bamboo Garden Bar and Lodge: #Pacifico #SanIsidro #Siargao

So I booked a room here, queen size bed, private, for only 1000 php a night so I wasn't expecting much out of that value especially for a beach hut accommodation. Plus, the photos I saw online were not bad but not that great either. Turns out that the place is a darling. It looks and feels waaaaaaay better than online and we were so happy.

We came at around 3 pm just before the sun set low on the horizon and the weather was perfect. By golden hour, the place felt so surreal. You know feeling of being next to sea, the waves serenading you, the sun punctuating through coconut trees, the air so fresh. At that time, I said to myself, "oh Siargao, why is that here the green grass looks greener, the blue sky looks bluer and the fresh air feels fresher". It certainly sets the good mood and tempo for our 5 days stay in the island.
Also, since I booked just a week before our trip, I just went for the cheapest one I could find. I didn't realize until the day of the trip that it is located in Pacifico ( San Isidro) which is an hour drive by motorbike from General Luna which is the main surfing location ( Cloud 9) and where most accommodation, pubs and restaurants are located. But it turned out great because the area is the quieter side of Siargao and we were so delighted we started the first two days of our trip in a relaxed, slow-paced tempo.

Jungle House with rates starting at 1,300 php. Beach house sleeps 4 pax and Jungle house can accommodate up to 5 pax. We originally booked a beach cottage but since another friend joined us, we were upgraded to a Beach House for only 1,100 php.

A beach house got a queen size bed at the ground floor and a single bed too while at the private deck (2nd floor) are two single beds. All fan room with hot and cold shower installed and mosquito nets per bed. Going back to our accommodation is like going back home each time. Bamboo Lodge Siargao got two sections,one on the beach side and one on the jungle side. See stayed at the latter side. We liked it here too coz it's really peaceful at night amidst the 
cconut trees that punctuate the property.

We enjoyed having meals at Bamboo bar. Their seafood vegetables and curry I highly recommend as well as their pizza and burger. I would say they have a really good chef. Hanging out at the gazebo next to beach is so relaxing, weather you are sipping cold beer or simply looking at the infinite view of the pacific ocean.
The beach is white sand and I was surprised how good it is. Not very ideal for swimming but good for beginners to intermediate surfers. We met the owners George and Mj at the ferry on our way to the island from Surigao City and they were so nice to give us a ride in their private car to the resort. Had some fun conversations with them during our stay and it made us really feel so at home with the place. There are so many things to say. All we had were good memories of the place.

Many of their guests are Westerners. We were the only Filipino there at that time and most guests stay for days, even weeks. The German couple next to our hut thought of transferring to Clod 9 area after a few days stay here but they decided to extend after checking the area which they find crowded. They preferred the quietness of Pacifico.
