We went to Surigao City and it was really nice to be in a peaceful, pollution free city where seafood is just great!
If you are wondering where stay with your kids in Surigao City, then your best bet is the Tavern Hotel.
It is the kids’ first time there, and we would not want to burden the relatives we will be visiting so we decided on booking a hotel.
At first I was really hesitant because unlike in our kid-free days, we could just arrive sans stalking a hotel, but now we have to be more conscious.
It was a good thing someone recommended Tavern to us and staying there for a couple of days was a great decision.
They may not have a pool, but almost all the niceties that you will want to have when traveling with young kids and babies, are provided for.
The room is super clean, wide enough for a small family with young kids to stay in, nice view, no mosquitoes at all, and did I say CLEAN? (yes super emphasis on that). They also have super nice and courteous staff that are so kid-friendly too!
The TAVERN is also Cloth Diapering-friendly because:
- The bathroom has a bidet
- The sink area is wide and comfy enough for washing nappies
- There is enough space in the veranda area to hang and sun washed CDs (not in the rails of course – they have lounge chairs in the balcony where you can hang your sipit-filled hangers)

Anyway, going back to the non-Cloth Diapering-Addict topic, they also have a good restaurant frequented by locals. I say take advantage of the seafood there because Surigao Seafood is soooo fresh. They also have a Dencio’s Style Inuman-slash-restaurant next to the hotel building, which has a live band.
The view from our room (We got the Standard Sea View Balcony) was so nice, Achi enjoyed just looking at the sea. If I am not mistaken we got it for less than P2,500.00 and this is not AGODA rate mind you. Direct to the hotel rate, so you can just imagine how affordable it could get if we got an advanced booking from those websites.
Anyway going back, the location is also great. It is near a lot of places if interest in the city. It is just across the boulevard, which is sooo clean! You won’t believe how you can almost see the sea floor (is that what you call it?) standing in the boulevard. Almost zero garbage ha! Of course there are a lot of seafood restaurants you can eat from so good luck if you are trying to lose weight.
And before I forget, if and when you need to buy anything, there is a convenience store right across the hotel, which is fairly well-stocked even with PX Goods.
Well there are a number of tourist destinations in the area where our relatives toured us, but that is for another post!
So there you go, if you are trying to find a kid-friendly hotel in Surigao City, The Tavern Hotel is your best option J
Happy and Safe Travel to You and Your Families Ladies!
