Saud Beach Resort & Hotel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Pagudpud
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Saud Beach Resort has the best beach front in all of Saud. powdery white sand and usually calm and still waters. Its truly beautiful.

This is the best thing I can say about Saud Beach Resort. Their rooms are dated. They look old and not as clean as it should be. We rented the beach front room at a price and expected better. Was extremely disappointed. There was a jacuzzi bathtub that had seen better days.

The room was big and there is cable but you only get very few channels. The bed was uncomfortable. The mattress was very thin on top of a wooden bed frame. It will hurt your back if you have back problems.

The worst of the problem we encountered was there was no water in the bathroom shower and thats the only way to take a bath. The water to rinse of sand and sea water outside had stronger water pressure and even that was sporadic. Showering was a chore but you wont have any other choice.

Oh, also only drink bottled water in the resort. Its not filtered water and they wont warn you. Food is reasonable inside the resort but nothing special.

Saud Beach Resort and Hotel Pagudpud
We happened along this hotel by luck, we were disappointed with our first stay at Pagudpud so I was reluctant to stay in the area again. We made the decision and we stayed at Saud Beach Resort and Hotel.
I asked the waiter if they had San Miguel Light and to my surprise out came an icy cold SML, we had a couple of beers and then ordered something to eat, the menu is limited but the food we ordered came out quickly and was fantastic, the service in this resort is top of the class, the staff are courteous and very helpful.
Saud itself is a wonderful resort, it is in a perfect location and the beach is white sand and a really good spot to be, Saud is easy to find and not hard work getting in and out of the grounds. Rooms are large and very nice, with a mini bar and coffee making facilities.
We drove to Illocos Norte from San Fernando La Union, the drive up to Candon is a little slow, but once past there the highway is really good and you can go at a reasonable pace, which for me is flat out. There is a bit of bad road just before you get to Pagudpud, but you can see it a mile away and it is only a short distance of road under repair, it may even be fixed by now.
On the side of the highway there are many stalls selling Native Onions and Garlic, and sea salt, so make sure you stop and buy some as it is very fresh.

In summary I highly recommend Saud Beach Resort as a place to stay, you cannot go wrong everything is nice and the staff are excellent, I will go back there for sure.

THE GOOD
Staff services excellent
Resort facing beach
Location excellent
Offers Hot water for shower

THE BAD
No wifi offered
Bathroom not well kept
Restaurant had wilted flowers as center piece . They could have thrown the flowers.
Nice menu but most of it are unavailable
Bar had no options, had 3 types of three only.

IT SEEMS LIKE THE FACILITY HAS BEEN IGNORED. It offers the best location for the beach but can offer more for the price they charge.

Saud Beach Resort has the best location along Saud Beach. It is very private with a nice beachfront and view of the Bangui Windmills at a distance.

However, the service and amenities are way below expectation given the price we paid for the room. We got a beachfront room which was very spacious but the airconditioning unit was not working well. The bathroom was dirty and dingy. There were no toiletries, bottled water and coffee/tea amenities, only basic bath towels and a roll of toilet paper. What's funny is there were cups, saucers and teaspoons in the room and they expect the guest to bring their own coffee. The beds were creaky, made of bamboo with hard matresses. There was no phone/intercom in the room so we needed to go out to the reception area which was in a separate structure along the beach each time we needed something (extra towels, toilet paper, etc.). The staff will not clean the room or fix/change the airconditioner (which I complained about) unless there is a guest present. Since we were out on a whole day tour, the room was still untidy when we came back late afternoon. We did not want to spend time watching the houskeeping staff clean our room since we wanted to take advantage of the beach so we had to settle for an uncleaned room on our second night. The room came with free breakfast only for 2 although our room was good for 4. Food is average and the servings were pathetic.

I paid a downpayment through bank deposit and paid the balance through credit card upon checking out. When I asked for an official receipt (i had to ask, they did not provide it voluntarily), i was told that i could only be given a recipt for the balance. I have to call the Manila office if I want to get a receipt for the downpayment. This sounded incredulous to me but opted not to argue.

The staff were friendly though.

I could only recommend this place because of the location, great view and beachfront. If you don't mind substandard service and staying in a room that I just described, then you could consider staying here when you're in Pagudpud.

location of the resort is prime and property itself is well kept however the service is comparable to a grade B motel. clearly they need to retrain their housekeeping crew on how to properly clean a room and place some sort of operating procedure because this resort surely needs it badly! amenities in this resort is a joke. one towel per person and a tiny bar of soap, really?!!. if your are going to use the brand "resort" next to your company name, you better deliver in all aspects. front desk need to better communicate to their guest of house rules prior to rather than the guest finding out first hand if there's a curfew at the resort. lastly, upon check out you don't accuse your guest stealing!!! I was accused of stealing a towel when they only provided 3 on a room that had 4 guests. It came to a shouting match because the customer’s voice were not being heard and dismissed at all cause. i guess the customer's satisfaction isn't their top priority in this facility but rather the well being of their employees and their property. I would never return to this property nor recommend to anyone.

I really enjoyed our stay here at the resort. We got a honeymoon suite and has a beach view. The room is quite spacious. The resort itself is also well maintained and clean. The staffs are very nice and friendly as well. They have a restaurant inside which offers good food. I love their grilled prawns in butter and garlic and calamansi juice. We visited some other accommodations in the Saud beach but this is really the best. We also went to Blue Lagoon beach but that beach was too crowded. This place is really perfect and quiet. If I will go back to Pagudpud, I would definitely be back here.
