Lounge chairs, love seats all spread around the resort grounds where one can chill, relax and enjoy the Pacific Ocean while sipping wine and other cocktails during happy hour/sunset. Resort is waterfront but missing a decent beach. This is... More

Supposedly the draw of this hotel is its thoughtful, and well-designed rooms. While the rooms may have been nice when it was built, it definitely needs maintenance and some renovation. The bathroom floors, for example, were done with wood steps, which after constant use has become quite moldy and slippery. Yes, it is an island, and yes, things do get... More

Great resort! Rooms are top notch and service is very good. One of the best resorts in Sairgo. The pizza's here are the best on the island. Woodfired brickoven pizzas. Had their pizzas 2 nights straight. Looking forward to it again on my next visit.

We stayed for 5 days and 4 nights and would recommend it to anyone going to Siargao. The only draw back is the price is just a bit higher than the other resorts around the area but it defenitly is worth it.

Me and my husband spent 3N and 4D at their villa. A relaxing and true peacefull experience..owner Mr Fred is pleasant and nice. The restaurant waitress and room cleaners are professional and nice. Food is the best in the island (try the sandwiches and baguette!!!) (5 claps for the chef) The place is a real beautiful creation. =)

My best friends and I stayed at Kalinaw for 3D and 2N as our last hurrah for the summer. We got the pool villa which is huge -- it has two toilets and baths, and two huge beds. Each bathroom has its own extra charm. The two sides of the villa is just divided by sliding panels so those getting... More

My husband and I spent three lovely nights at Kalinaw Resort. The location is beautiful. The resort has only five rooms/villas which are all sea facing. The food in restaurant is excellent. The staff are all pleasant and helpful. We will definitely be back.
