          Stayed for 2 nights in Dec and my family loved the place, there were many things to do without the need to leave the hotel. There is a zoo, beach, swimming pool. The staff were courteous and helpful as well. The hotel is clean and well-maintained though could use a bit of updating. Overall a great stay.

          Their rooms and courtyard looked so beautiful - like you were transported in Seville. The staff were accommodating! They even cooked my mom special dried fish just because she mentioned she was craving for it even though it wasn't in the buffet table. Wish I had more time to enjoy this hotel. One con is the location. It's a little far from the town and difficult to locate.

          Very Big Hotel but A Little Boring to Stay”
          Hotel is good only if you don’t want any disturbance from the City. Place is very quiet and big. But for me and my Mom, this is a little boring to stay. Foods are quite expensive. No any other store nearby to buy some foods. A little far from the capital. They have free shuttle from the airport.

          All you need is here!”
          We booked this hotel as a pit stop for our northern Luzon escapade. but instead, we enjoyed our stay that we even find time to use their swimming pool facility and their access to the beach. If ever we will be up north again, it will be because we want to stay to fort ilocandia again. imagine, SUBA sand dunes adventures are just 5 mins drive from the hotel and you wont even go out the highway to access it. So after you enjoyed the unlimited sandboarding, you go back to the hotel for a quick shower and you can continue your tour of Ilocos. I WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!!!

          Place is peaceful and serene. I was worried about the food when we get there due to the reviews that I’ve read prior to our trip. But I’m surprised it’s actually good! It may not be exceptional to others but it was delicious for me. I agree that the place is a bit deserted and lonely but I think it’s there for a reason especially if you’re looking for a place to detach yourself from the noise and busy life on the metro. Room was spacious and clean as well!

          Old hotel with character.”
          Rooms are spacious and well maintained. Lots of amenities to enjoy. No need to getout to enjoy the vacay. You can enjoy the beach, the pool, zoo, or simply explore the hotel. Food though is nothing to look forward to. But will still highly recommend Fort Ilocandia to friends. Read some bad reviews about the hotel. We went there this holy week only which is peak season. Did not see anything that would turn me off except food is not great. Hope they maintain the place so it can still be a destination for many more visitors in the years to come. We will definitely go back.

          Overall scenery is breath-taking and relaxing. So many recreational activities to spend time on to enrich experience such as the beach side, golf course, mini-animal zoo and especially the hot air balloon ride! Needs Improvement: * Rooms need to have wallclock. * Complimentary breakfast buffet should have increased main courses based on specialty such as longanisa. * Walkway towards the beachfront have animal droppings that needs to cleared out every time. * Needs to have animal dormitory rooms for small pets like dogs or cats.

          Picture and selfie perfect place, the beach looks not swimmable but there's an available pool. Food is expensive but big serving and worth to order within here because of the hotel location rather than going out, need to improve certain dish, like our room service order buffalo wings that is merely fried chicken wings. Club sandwich, Kare Kare, Fresh lumpia and included breakfast buffet superb! Need to open light at the entrance to the rooms, its too dark there. Children enjoyed the pool and tub :)

          Luxurious Hotel to stay in the Province of Laoag Ilocos Norte”
          The room we stayed in had a bath tub with heater. The room had a phone, an electric hot water heater for coffee or tea, a refrigerator, a safety deposit box and cable television. A terrace overlooking the swimming pool, the driving range and the beach. The package we got included buffet breakfast. There was a bread station, juice station, coffee / tea / water station. An egg station and the buffet spread which consisted of noodles, rice, fried fish, sausages, ham, cake, fruits etc... The property offered free shuttle on mondays, wednesdays and fridays from the hotel to robinsons mall in san nicolas, then to puregold in laoag city, then back to the hotel. This was four times a day from 12 noon onwards. Schedule available at the front desk. On other days, you can hire a van that can take you around. The only negative thing in staying in this property is that if you don't have a car, it is hard to get around. There are no tricycles nearby. The only option is to hire a private van on the days when there is no shuttle provided by the hotel. Or you can rent a van from the hotel. Of course its a but expensive. Also, you can ask the concierge for cheaper options ini hiring a van or smaller vehicle. The place itself with all its amenities is worth the money you're paying for. A beautiful historic hotel to lay back and relax. Excellent location for a vacation with the whole family. There is an olympic sized pool, a tiled floor pool and a children's pool. There are a lot of activities available. My son went fishing and he had the time of his life. We also went swimming. The beach is not conducive to swim at the time we went there because of the high tide. There was also a mini zoo. The casino is closed, hopefully they will consider opening it in the near future. It would have made our stay perfect. I am looking forward in returning to Fort Ilocandia soon. I had a very memorable and relaxing stay.

          a bit pricey but with all the facilities and services it has to offer, i guess it's worth it; quite far from the city center (about 20 mins drive) but near some of the city's points of interests; old but elegant and charming; staff is courteous but front office and room service are quite slow to act/respond.

          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.

          My family enjoyed our stay at Fort Ilocandia. The place is really spacious and we consider it a one stop shop hotel, as they also offer various activities (i.e. Kayaking, beach volleyball, sand boarding, etc). Food is also good! We tried cafe ilocandia for the bagnet, poque poque, blue marlin sinigang. We also dined at Red 8 Asian, food did not fail but the crowd is quite noisy. But nonetheless, we really enjoyed the vacation! ⛄️Merry Christmas!🎄

          Our stay was very good. Spanning 77 hectares, it is a vacation in itself. My entire family was able to go to a beach, a zoo, a pine forest, a Spanish-Moroccan villa and a pool. On top of all these is the unrivalled Filipino hospitality extended by everyone from the hotel driver to the valet, to zookeepers.
