Went here with my wife and three kids. It was our first time at Kingfisher and second visit to Pagudpud. After reading the reviews here at Trip Advisor I reserved a Casita with loft for an overnight stay. Place was quiet and clean. Bath and toilet was setup with big containers of shampoo and assorted body wash as well as family size bar soap, alcohol and cotton buds were also available. Dryer is available upon request. Room had a flat screen tv with in-house child friendly movies .The staff was very accommodating and courteous. Food was good and reasonably priced and servings were quite hefty. We arrived at around 4pm, went for a short swim and was greeted by Beever and T-rex the two most friendliest dogs ever. My kids enjoyed playing with them as they are also excellent swimmers. We went kayaking before the sun set and had a lot of fun. In the evening Mon arrived and greeted us, he was very accommodating and even offered us free dessert after dinner. The kids played Xbox with kinect at the Rec room before going to bed. We decided to skip movies and hit the sack early. Next morning we woke up at 10am, one of the best sleep I've had in years! Went for a short dip and packed our stuff. Mon was very hospitable and again offered us free halo-halo ( a local summertime dessert) to beat the summer heat. Our kids kept asking when we will come back even when we hadn't left the resort yet. My mistake was that I had also booked a hotel in Vigan for the following night, if not we all would have wanted to stay another night or two at this peaceful and wonderful place. Even though Kingfisher is known in the International scene as a Kite-surfing spot, I would say it is also a nice place for family bonding and my family and I look forward to next summer so we can comeback to this hidden paradise in Ilocos Norte.
