The hotel's location is along the highway a kilometer away from the city proper of San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte and a couple of kilometers to Laoag City. It's relatively new building and they have a very nice edifice. Basement parking is ample and they allow parking in front of the hotel.
The rooms are spacious with 2 double beds. No WiFi inside the room but is available in the hotel lobby which is according to my daughter, is unbearably slow. Cable TV has good signal and channels. The room also has a refrigerator, electric kettle, and an ample size cabinet. It would be nice if there was a vault inside.
There are outdoor pools for kids and adults but the water was quite turbid and I have a feeling that it was not being religiously maintained every day.
The room was at the very end of the hotel property. The window is facing the north side which has the view of the rice field, cockfighting farm, and a bus depot. During our first night, I requested that our beddings be changed because we experienced itchiness and suspected that dust mites may have been present in the sheets.
Our bookings include breakfast. The first day, we were served a la carte and the rest of our stays were all buffet. The food wasn't really that good. Choices were very limited and it was a managed buffet.
Overall, the stay was fairly good but I think it was overpriced. If it was not for the peak season we could have stayed in a far better hotel in Laoag with about the same price.
I did not take any pictures of the hotel as we were always out most of the time.
