This huge complex, marketed as a resort, spa, and casino, had better days when it opened in 1983 after being built to accommodate guests at a wedding of one of president Marcos's daughters, and a major renovation in 2000. Photographs in the big lobby of the former president and First Lady invite visitors to remember the years of the Marcos... More

This is the second time I've stayed in Fort Ilocandia and for the second time, I enjoyed my stay and had a restful time. Working non-stop for the past two months, I needed plenty of rest and lots of space to recharge. And I came to the right place. The place is so relaxing with its olde-worlde architecture and serene... More

Starting from the relatively secluded location, this historic accommodation offers a certain charm that may not necessarily appeal to all. The red brick facade, the hacianda-esque feel, the wide sprawling complex, the old style metal sculptures, the spacious smoking rooms and much much more. Certainly a start in it's hayday, I have to admit that it's more rugged around the... More

Hotel had an 'hacienda' feel with its architecture and sprawling grounds. Unfortunately, we only stayed overnight and did not really get to explore the outdoor facilities of the hotel. Room was spacious though it definitely shows signs of aging. They only provided one pillow each and when we requested for additional pillows, we were told that there will be extra... More

I'm making a review of our 30 minute tour of this resort. Our tour guide from Laoag Renzo Hotel said we could go inside the resort and look around for free. I wondered what I would see inside for it to be on the itinerary. We saw enlarged pictures of late Pres. Marcos and his wife Imelda... that's all there... More

I'm happy to have stayed here finally after all these years of hearing about this hotel from parents and friends. Going around this historic hotel was a good experience for us. The atmosphere though is of a grand old lady, so if you'd prefer a more modern hotel with modern decor this might not be for you. Pros: It's a... More

This hotel is claims to be a 5-five star hotel in their website. I would say from our experience it is not even a 4-star hotel, so we did not get our money's worth. 1) it is very far from the center of the city and from all other attractions of Laoag. the hotel does not even have a shuttle... More

Awesome place, beautiful garden, gorgeous interior, and grandiose altogether. We only toured around, besides that we already fell the special facilities from rooms to dining area which was visible from the pass way. The boutique sells gorgeous items too. Love the chandeliers and the grand staircase. The garden, well manicured. Excellent amenities and an inspiring place to be.
