OveMar Resort Hotel
Ranked #21 of 31 Vigan B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This hotel is actually located in the middle of nowhere and you will need to rely on the hotel's free shuttle to Vigan's main attraction (the old town).
We chose this hotel because all hotels in old town were fully booked for the conference that was held during our visit.

Here are the positives about this hotel:
* Friendly hotel's staff
* Helpful shuttle's staff. The staff, took us to a place where we want to get the tasty pork dish that we like during breakfast.
* Good view of the hotel's owner nice "american" style house nearby.

Here are the negatives about this hotel:
* Located in the middle of nowhere
* Limited frequency of hotel's free shuttle to get into Vigan's old town
* There are nothing "alive" nearby in which you will need to rely on the hotel's food and amenities.
* The hotel's design is a little bit out of date and is in need of renovation.

Summary: If you are looking for the "old colonial charm" of Vigan, this hotel is nowhere close to the Vigan's atmosphere. Choose a hotel in the heart of Vigan old town. This hotel's location is another draw back of this property.

Hotel is located out of town in a tranquil and peaceful setting. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Transportation to and from town is provided or you can call the hotel for directions. Ovemar has nice roof top restaurant/bar that you can enjoy inside or out, open court, swimming pool etc.

We took the city tour offered by the hotel and it was excellent. Our guide and driver were so informative, pleasant, and accommodating. The UNESCO site was wonderful.

Hotel is located few minutes away from the town proper. Hotel representative can actually pick you up in Vigan if you are having hard time to locate their place. Ovemar has nice facilities such as bar, open court, swimming pool etc. Well ventilated and clean rooms. Walking distance away from the beach where you can set up bon fire at night. Staff are super friendly :) Highly recommended.
