Probably the best hotel in Laoag despite there being criticisms in trip advisor. I stayed here just one night and enjoyed my stay.
Booked via Trip Advisor - deluxe room. Arrived at the hotel about 3pm. Bellman was present to take the baggage and I proceeded to reception for check in. Receptionist was very friendly - and helpful. Nicely deigned lobby with local photographs on display / for sale. The grounds are very nice and well looked after. The hotel attracts a lot of Chinese guests given Laoag has direct flights with China and this hotel has its own casino. There is some criticism on TA of washing on the room balconies which look unsightly. This goes with the clientele / the culture.
Had dinner in the bar - quite reasonable.
Nice grounds to walk around but the sea is stills very long walk from the main buildings of the hotel. The pool etc are not very much used - I believe the casino and massage are the most used facilities in the hotel.
On the whole, I had a nice stay here which was very enjoyable. If I were here for any length of time I may get bored given the hotels isolation and my lack of interest in the casino - it's primary attraction. Notwithstanding it's a nice hotel with good decor. Air conditioning and wifi all work very well.
