If you want to explore the north (Ilocos region), this is a great place to stay. The hotel's antique facade and interiors are impressive(showcasing a lot of Marcos' history)--it needs some rehabilitation though-- and the wifi should be free! I don't think there are other hotels nearby comparable to this one (5 star--but needs some upgrades). The place is peaceful and comfortable with so many areas excellent for photoshoot. The great deal that I liked is the offered tours--especially convenient for those who do not like bringing their own transport. They could take you to all the tourist spots there (Pagudpod, Batac, Bangui Windmills, etc) by having a minimum of five travelers(otherwise you pay the full amount)--public commuting here is a waste of energy and time. You have to inform the front desk staff if you need transfer services. The food in their buffets are good--mostly Chinese and lacks promotion of Ilocano dishes (all restaurants are inside the area, but if you want some cheap ones, they are available along the public beach walking distance from the area). The beach was not that nice (good thing there are swimming pools) when we got there though. But as a whole, I enjoyed my northern adventure (together with my fiance!)--just don't forget to bring your sunblock with you -- you'll definitely have a great time here!!!
