I had to travel to Laoag overnight for legal matters. Checking the web, I noted that only Fort Ilocandia had the facilities I needed for business, so I booked. I was not disappointed. The hotel is five star all the way. The Sunset Suite was huge and had a great view from two balconies. It was clean and smelled good although they gave me a smoking room. Amenities are topnotch. The views are fantastic, and it was majestic in the sense that the compound where the hotel is located was sprawling. The decor is a step up from other hotels: it exuded Old World ambiance, a far cry from the cookie cutter interiors of hotel chains. It had quality rugs on the floor and hardwood furniture. The food was good and servings generous, although for authentic Ilocano fare you'sd have to go to the town porper. It was also very close to the airport, and the shuttle was a new Toyota van. Their service rental was a Ford E150 van. The tariff and incidentals were surprisingly reasonable for the quality of the service and the facilities. Of course, not much to see outside the hotel, but it's not the hotel's fault. The only sour note is the profusion of Chinese guests, who were boisterous and uncouth. In all, a wonderful experience. Going back with the family next month. YEAH BA!

1) The buffet breakfast was barely passing. There were very limited choices.
2) The facilities are already old and dilapidated. They need to repair a lot of things in the hotel.

“Moderate and overrated”
Nice building and architecture but not well maintained. Can be better improved with the amenities and staff services.

“Highly recommended ”
Very much impressed with the shuttle service, not just from the Airport to Hotel, but they have daily shuttle service to the city proper. We did not spend a penny on transportation because the Hotel already provided for it. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet of different cuisines. The room was very spacious, especially for the deal we got from Agoda. There are several scenic spots in the place that the travellers could enjoy and have their picture taken. There is also an olympic-sized pool, that any swimmer, such as my husband could enjoy. Looking forward to going back with the whole family again.

“Awful Experience!!! ”
Our first time to stay at Fort Ilocandia. It was rated 5 star but we believe this is a over rated hotel.
The location is nice and the hotel itself but the management, rules and regulation sucks! I will enumerate it one by one.
Oct 23 we arrived at the hotel around 3 pm. The reception desk was asking for my original id. Since we are from the USA we are taking originals with us just photo copies. I showed them the DL on my iphone and the manager said oh we need the original . I replied really for what? you only need it for identification and that is my face on the drivers license. He replied oh just to attached to the file. I said look just print a copy of this and you have a copy for your file ( duh) and that's what they did. The lack some imagination or trouble shooting experiences.
The the bus boy took us to our room which is like way to far from the entrance. We are with an elderly person and she could not walk but was force to walk to get to our room ( no choice). This hotel is not handicapped friendly so pls beware! It is not senior citizen friendly either.
We arrived at the our room 3 pm and it super hot! we ask the front desk to check on it and they said give it an hour. Guess what 3 hours has gone by and it is still super hot. They finally sent engineering to work on this and it took almost 5 hours for our room to finally cool off.
Around 10 pm we went out and notice that our doors are not locking properly - OMG we called the engineering again and they were fixing it and hammering etcc. making loud noises till 11 pm while we are trying to rest!!! I got up and was express my frustrations.
Pls note this is only our first night. The second day we ask for fresh towels. They said we are going to charge you 50 pesos for the extra towels. I said OMG for a five start hotel you are charging your customer 50 pesos for extra towels. I said forget it.
We also always run out of tissue paper. They provide us one tissue paper for three people inside t
