The best place to stay in the area. Its just across the Unesco world heritage site Paoay Church. with its colonial spanish design, you will feel the heart and era of the province. Its a must stay. Just rent a scooter or a bike and go around town and savor one of the most peaceful place without the noise and... More

If you wabt to stay in Paoay, this is the place. It is a few blocks away from the Paoay Church. there is a 711 next door (perfect to buy ice cream on a hot summer day!), the SPAM cafe and Herencia restaurant (home of the pakbet pizza) are nearby. Even the Orense Reef sand dunes are quite close. As... More

Casa Doña Emilia is a stone throw away from the iconic Paoay church which is an advantage for its location but what we like most is how we were handled by the soft spoken receptionist named Swerte. From reservation, preparing our breakfast, updating us and our navigator she was there. Casa Doña Emilia a truly number 1 homey b&b in... More

We had a hard time looking for this hotel because the address is wrong(from Agoda site). We went to Batac only to found out that it was only in Paoay (where we had our lunch). The receptionist explained to us that they already informed Agoda to change the address. The room was big for 6 adults and 1 kid. Clean... More

This a small and simple inn yet cozy and very accommodating. The frontdesk officer, named Swerte (translated in English as "Lucky") was very hospitable and had a smile always. The breakfast was good. The ambiance was relaxing and fit for the rural place yet with some sophistication. The amenities are basic but just fine.

Perfect for an overnight stay here in Paoay. The place is quiet, clean and comfy, located at the back of Paoay church and just across the municipal hall. I just hope their swimming pool was clean when we checked in so that the kids were able to do night swimming.

The hotel is a nice small hotel and a good choice to stay over in Paoay. Sure you can not compare the hotel with an Resort but it is clean, has a nice courtyard and friendly staff they helped us to check out the buses for our trip to Vigan. However if you are interested to go around check the... More

I've always stayed at Casa Dona Emilia when I go to Ilocos Norte and enjoyed my stay every time. The place is so comfortable with cleanliness, ambiance and service at the top of my list. The super efficient airconditioning system, orthopedic beds, linen and duvet covers make you feel like staying in your room the whole day. The bathrooms are... More

Stayed for 2 nights and the location is perfect. Its just infront of the municipal building and 3 minutes walk to the church which is a world heritage site. Its cozy ambiance and the service is impecable for a bed and breakfast inn. The rooms are basic with ref, aircon clean and comfortable. Value for money, I would stay here... More
