We chose Flotsam and jetsam for it's quirky and chill vibe, we stayed there May 7-8 2017 in one of the view rooms in the second floor. We were really excited about the whole place but upon checking in we were surprised by a lot of rules being said by two foreigners who are not really accommodating (no smiles, no...

My friends and I ate there last May 21 at 1pm. They made us wait for around 40 mins before our dishes (Pork Red Curry and Fried Chicken Paddang) came out and the food they served was cold and was so bland. When we asked the server about why our food was this way he just shrugged us off and...

Most instagrammed place in Elyu. Quaint and quirky hotel. Holds music gigs, art events, and movie nights. Place for good food, too. La Union is more than just Surfing. Chance a good deal by booking days in advance.

My friends and I enjoyed our two night stay in this hostel. The place exuded a relaxing vibe and the staff were friendly. Even the regulars there are warm and friendly to other guests. The rooms are a bit expensive but clean and really nice -- Instagrammable :P the buffet breakfast consists mainly of cereals, bread, butter and jam. You...

Decided to have our lunch in Flotsam & Jetsam (it's not listed in our car navi, weird) upon arriving in LU. We ordered 2 of their specials, Seared Tuna and Pork Belly (I think). Both tasted good, but maybe nothing remarkable that will set it apart from other restaurants. Hubby tried one makai bowl, and it has an interesting taste,...

Perfect place to stay with friends because it gives you the laid-back-beer-chill kind of vibe. The food, the music and the frontbeach certainly makes you wanna bum around all day. Went here with my bestfriend for a quick getaway and although we didnt surf, we enjoyed watching the surfers ride the waves.

Went here for some some late night drinks. The place seems to appeal to the millenials and the surfing public. One can choose to sit near the bar, or some makeshift cottages, or just in the sand. On the downside, they stop serving food items at 10pm, so one can only order drinks. Still,a good place to unwind in San...
