Hotel Tiffany has immaculate rooms with TV, all decorated in different candy colours. Room rates SR/ac/bath P480, DR/ac/bath P730 and P1000 (refrigerator). I definitely recommend this hotel. The room & bath is big with two double beds. We booked in a Junior Suite room good for 4 persons & charged us P1270. Fairly good value. Has a good restaurant downstairs.
clean & cheap accomodation
Fort Ilocandia Resort now managed by Jimei, Inc is fantastically maintained in its old, rustic charm. Front office customer service was ok but housekeeping and porter service was exemplary! May help if staff would smile more often. Highly recommended hotel/resort. If not of the other great places to see in Ilocos, activities is the resort is sufficient to occupy one's 3-day vacation.
... great pool area and was especially ecstatic when i saw the 50-meter olympic size pool. great chance to work out as i strongly prefer swimming as my cardio-work-out. Beach was great and we were there almost the whole night enjoying the full moon, the fine gray sand and chasing waves. Sand bikes are also available but not sure if with cost. Kids will love the wide open spaces to play and romp around.
Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel and Casino.
I took the package which came out to about US$120, inclusive of roundtrip airfare to and from Manila, two nights of de luxe room accomodations, buffet breakfast for two days, and one guided tour of either Vigan or Pagudpud. Not bad, and well worth the cost.
The architecture is great! The fun activities, like all terrain vehicle rentals and archery range. And the friendly service! The hotel is right at the center of the Ilocos region, within easy driving distance of other must-see destinations in that area.
Laoag isn't a prime tourist destination and hotels are few and far between.
Definitely a backpacker's inn, ideal for overnight stays/stop overs.
Looks vintage but kept clean, Texicano Hotel has bog-standard double rooms with air-con and cable TV.
Twin sharing with a t/b for P170/night, good service, nice Ilocanos
It was only a short visit at Kapuluan but the zen-inspired place was serene with music of the surf lulling one to either sleep. In a heartbeat it also invites one to feel the peace of the raised pool in the courtyard or take a dip and play with the waves welcoming the far-off monsoon...
ahh, being in this part of the Pagudpud is like being in a different world.
Zen. Inspiring peace of mind, haven for the tired soul ...
(see, i become a poet just thinking back that day of visit)
Kapuluan beachfront is the playground of surfers, but stillness and quiet is just nearby. The blue lagoon is just about 1.5 kms away. Actually, you'll pass by the blue lagoon before you get to Kapuluan Vista Resort. See more pictures attached to this tip.
Nice aircon room with cable television, clean bathroom but not too big, walking distance to the St. Joseph bus terminal, located at the main road.... accessible to a gasoline station, fastfood chain and other establishment, staffs are very friendly and accomodating
they have a giant sungka located at the 2nd level where guest can play anytime
we only visited this hotel for a peek and the hotel is awesome..... i'll make sure to stay here the next time i visit ilocos norte...
complete amenities.... swimming pool, golf course, beach, water sports, gym, shops, spa, casino, restos, etc
The hotel is old although kept clean. Rooms vary from single, double to triple occupancy. Most rooms are airconditioned and have their own T/B. Adjoining rooms may also be requested, but subject to availability.
Due to basic room amenities, it is ideal for travelling salesmen and short-term visitors. Nothing fancy, really. Even access to telephone is limited; calls must be placed at the reception where the only available phone is located.
Fort Ilocandia is indeed the best accomodation in the city of Laoag.
It is the only five star hotel/resort in Northern Luzon. A Spanish Moroccan inspired villa, the resort is complete with facilities and luxuriously designed to provide absolute satisfaction for the tourists. Equipped with 280 rooms, each offering you a panoramic view of the resort. With 24 hour services to attend to your every need, making your stay plesant and pleasurable.
Several tourists, mostly coming from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China come here to play and the casino and in it's 18 hole golf course.
We enjoyed our stay here because the service and facilities are really first class. Their breakfast buffet is also very nice. The rooms are spacious and the beds are soft and clean.
> The Casino filipino - is open 24 hours, assisted by multi-lingual attendants.
>Dining- Feast from our four food outlets serving Chinese, Korean, Filipino, Cantonese, Japanese and Continental cuisine. Courtyard Cafe offers fancy sweets and tempting pastries for your indulgence.
> Other activities & ammenities to enjoy: Horse backriding , a swimming pool, driving range, hotair balloon, shooting, paitball, fishing, archery and all terrain vehicle.
if your really looking for a budget accom then try supertram lodge, small but clean room... we got an aircon room for 500 pesos only good for two... 600 pesos with tv...
walking distance in ilocos capitol...(but you can ride a tryke if you dont want to walk)
Java Hotel is a great new place in Laoag, with its great service and facilities. Its rooms are big enough for city travelers with big luggages. It has excellent food - has Ilocano dishes and a mix of Filipino cuisine too. It even has a gym, pool, tennis court - so you won't get bored at all. There's even videoke at night in their restaurant and Bar. What I love about the place is its relaxing atmosphere..the mountain view is cool.
Typical Backpackers' Inn. Clean . Very Cheap, we only paid less than $20 for the room with 2 beds, aircon. We stayed in a purple-pink striped room.
Spacious, clean and affordable room but when I was there, it was being renovated.
The room is cheap considering what you can have. Don't forget that Laoag is still a laidback city so there are not too many plush hotels except for the luxurious Fort Ilocandia.
Phone can let you call NDD/IDD
Just beside the Autobus station (bus from Manila to Laoag)
Restaurant in the ground floor can cook your food upon your request/order
Try taking the ubiquitous tricycle to McDonald's, where jeeps to tourist spots are stationed.
The Best hotel in Laoag in terms of facilities but located far from the city center, Fort Ilocandia was built purposely in the early '80s by Marcos in time for one of his daughters grand wedding - obviously for guests' accomodation. The buildings (including the 2 U-shaped buildings for accomodation) are 2-storey high and are built of Ilocos bricks of local architecture.
With the opening of The Laoag International Airport, Ilocos Region now has a steady flow of foreign tourists, mostly Chinese, all year round and Fort Ilocandia is the place to stay on package tours offered. So it is no wonder to find more Chinese here staying than locals. Another big come-on is the hotel's Casino.
We only did a day-tour around the place. There's an olympic size swimming pool unto the wide beachfront - a good place to watch the sunset.
The hotel garden and open areas are planted with trees and plants and are well-maintained covering the original barren desert-like landscape.
While I was researching on where to stay in Laoag City, I was torn between Balay de Blas Pensionne House and Laoag Renzo Hotel. What made me choose Laoag Renzo Hotel was their promo of stay two nights, get the third night free. This would definitely stretch our budget a little longer.
At first, I was a bit apprehensive whether it would be a good place to stay. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not just affordable, it also provided excellent service and good accommodations.
We got a standard double room for P1,350. It was clean and comfortable. There was hot and cold shower, free wi-fi a ref, as well as complimentary breakfast for two. There was also a water boiler, hair dryer and television. As most hotels, it was air-conditioned. The wardrobe was big enough to accommodate two backpacks. The desk table was near two outlets if you have a computer or phone to charge. The bedside table also had a couple of plugs.
The rooms were found on the third and fourth floors. Some visitors might not like the fact that they had no elevators, but I did not mind it at all. It helps burn a few calories from all the wonderful Ilokano cuisine you will be eating. However, this place might not be advisable to older clients, those with small children or those on wheelchairs. If you also choose to stay here, better use duffel bags or backpacks instead of wheeled luggages.
The buffet breakfast was not that bad either. They offer three to four choices of viand, including a noodle based meal, friend rice and banana. You could also choose between coffee and a cold drink (iced tea or lemonade, depending on what is available). The first day, I chose coffee but found it too weak for my taste. The lemonade I had the next day was quite refreshing.
The staff are very accommodating. One even helped me find a massage place though they did offer home service. I told them I would rather go to the place (it would be cheaper). They got a reservation for me, even if they lose their commission if they were able to convince me to do a home service.
Over all, I would definitely recommend this place. It's location is strategic. There is a supermarket right beside it so you can buy yourself some supplies in case you run out. Plus the rooms are comfortable and the staff provide good service.
I appreciated that there was a water boiler so I could make my own coffee since I did not like the coffee they served at the buffet. There was also a fridge where we could keep our water cold. I was not expecting complimentary breakfast, but there it was for us to enjoy.
It is also strategically located in the middle of the city, making it accessible to public transportation. It was near a lot of eating places and is located right beside the supermarket where you can get supplies like toothpaste or toothbrush in case you forgot.
Their wifi is free, unlike higher end hotels. Even without us asking, they already provided us the passcode after we checked in.
Definitely, this place provided good service.
