Awesome Surf Safari and Stay at Mao Mao.”

The service was amazing! Ein was the best host and was very accommodating. He helped us make reservations for surf guide and was helpful in recommending adventures! The location was also close to surf where you take the boats out.
I’m from the USA and accustomed to more AC. The ceiling fan was very high up and I couldn’t feel it. But they let me use the common area fan at night. I was the only one who really minded the heat and needed the fan so it worked out. I also wish they accepted CC. But not many places on the island do. So all good.

- the rooms and the common areas are very well decorated and aesthetically pleasing (as in the pictures). - the rooms and the environment were clean and tided up daily. the space is also very peaceful, quite, and chill. - you can rent scooters and book activities at the reception directly. we recommend the massages and the surf classes!!! it is also a must to rent scooters to get to places. - for additional money, you can have a nice breakfast food at the property. the banana shake was also amazing! - the location is not very close to the busier streets of General Luna, but it is reasonably accessible with scooters. we personally liked this aspect. - good (fan) ventilation system in the room.
- the only way of reaching the staff (when not on the property) is via their IG account&#47; chat. it does not always allow for real time communication (though, it is effective in the majority of cases). - we would have appreciated being able to pay via credit card or PayPal &#47; similar for the extras (although we understand that it is not very common in the island, many establishments make use of online payment methods)

Mao Mao is a beautiful community run by beautiful people. Everyone was very helpful in sorting out the things we wanted to do like motorbike rental, yoga and surf lessons, which were all brilliant! Thanks so much to Ien, Tabitha, Marco, Cara, the surf instructors and whoever makes the delicious pancakes, smoothie bowls and taquitos there!
Wifi in the room is not great, but Siargao is so wonderful you shouldn&#39;t be hanging around in your room looking for wifi, get out and explore it!

Such a unique place to stay! The hosts, Cara and Marco, as well as the people who work at Mao Mao really make you feel at home. Meeting all of them has been such a valuable experience. There is much to do on the island and you will receive the best tipps from Ien. Moreover, they serve the best iced coco coffee and food on the island, and just started offering amazing Yoga Classes, so don&#39;t miss out!
Nothing, I loved every bit of it!

I wish I could live here”

i have loved everything about Maomao surf! I wish I could’ve stayed much longer because 5 days was definitely not enough. The property, the amenities, outdoor shower did not disappoint. On top of everything mentioned, the staff- which quickly became like family to us have made this trip so memorable. Kuya Jake, Ien, Cara, Marco &amp; the surfer instructors who were extremely patient and understanding are worth mentioning. ALSO THEY HAVE THE BEST PANCAKES AND COCO COFFEE!!!
No negatives about the property at all

The vibe is just amazing - beautiful property and people!”

This is an amazing place to stay, not only for the beautiful rooms and delicious breakfast pancakes, but also for its people. We had the chance to meet Cara and Marco, the owners of the place and they were just super nice and helpful - felt like a family. Also, we had our incredible receptionist&#47;friend Ien, who helped us during our whole stay; transfers&#47;bike&#47;places to visit and so on. We did such a nice group of friends from all over the world in Mao that we even went for dinner and party together ;) Clearly, thanks to Mao Mao we had the opportunity to meet so many nice people… Surely, we’ll come back. Thanks for everything!

Bungalows were cozy. Staff specially Yen was very friendly and accommodating. The pancakes for bfast were really good and the coffee. Great value for money. The owner Marco was very helpful too. 5 minutes drive to cloud 9.
It was very hot cause no AC but good thing they provided us with another fan. We had a hard time taking shower as the bath tub was very high. lol. 😁 Location is bit far from the centre but if you rent a motorbike then its ok.

Mao Mao Surf is a beautiful oasis in the middle of what can be a very busy General Luna. Following activities and socializing, or as a way to start your day, it’s a pleasure to rest at MMF, whether being helped by the incredibly welcoming owners and staff or interacting with the other guests in the bar. MMS manifests the ethos and philosophy of its owners: low impact on the environment and high impact on the quality of your SIargao experience.
