Great hospitality and great customer service is very rare in the Philippines especially to fellow Filipinos like myself.

The staff and owners welcomed me with smiles and amazing hospitality, very rare from my experiences in the Philippines.

      A relaxing weekend at Pannzian”

      First is the friendliness of the staff, second is the environmental awareness policy of the resort and third, community in the area whose livelihood of fishing is easily observable.

      A pleasant surprise for everyone in our group. We've been doing group trips and I can easily say that this is one of the best.Thanks to Pannzian staff for making it so. Initially, I was a bit disappointed when we arrived late afternoon. It is not the place I imagined when I book it. I was expecting something at least the same as the 20 kilometers or so Saud Beach area where we stayed last year's Pagudpud trip. Pannzian resort is isolated (far away from other resorts) and the beach has strong waves which makes swimming at the dates we were in the resort (3rd week October) a bit dangerous and not the season to swim. However, my disappoints slightly disappear with the welcome greetings from the smiling faces of the staff. My disappointment later turned to amazement when I realized how friendly the staff were. Another positive thing with the staff is that it looks like they enjoy what they do in helping us out. Smile is always on their menu when they talk to us. One way to describe as well the staff is that they are empowered to decide the right thing. A few concerns like room rates if we change the configuration of the rooms we booked will be called on to their bosses but other things like when the air-con in the duplex room is not working properly, they easily provided another room to compliment the duplex. Anything you asked be it extra towel, bucket of ice, etc... all our requests are received with respect, smile and yes Sir we will provide you! Is the management of Pannzian doing the correct way of training the staff or is it just the natural attitude of these staff (who lives nearby) that they know how to provide service to guests? My guess is both! At night, free bon fire set-up in the beach were provided with marshmallow on sticks! We had it in our first night and did it again on the second night. Wonderful activity to do with friends and family. We will surely comeback to Pagudpud someday and Pannzian will be our to choice among other resorts.

      Excellent”

      The cleanest beach front, most private, eco-friendly resort in Pagudpud. The food is delish and made with home-grown herbs from their garden. The hot chocolate and the lemongrass tea with mint or tarragon leaves really transports you. The shrimp sinigang soup was a hit with our 10-year old. Their freshly made mulberry jam for their pancakes would definitely be something to look forward to on a cheesecake! The resort forewarns you that this is a tech-free zone, so go there to appreciate the sun, sea and garden. The first night of utter silence takes getting used to - if you are used to the noise of the city then the silence could be quite a challenge :) But in the morning, when you see the beach, you'll heave a sigh of relief and know in your heart that the long trip getting to Barangay Pancian was well worth it. There is a 30-40 minute trek to a small river with a clear and cool pool you could bathe in. For the agile, it would be a cinch. For the not so active, make sure you rest at the 600m and 300m rest areas and bring a bottle of water. Its like Sonia's Garden meets the Ocean :) Owner is a lovely woman who would remind you of the Girl from Ipanema :) her passion is in social entrepreneurship and Pannzian Beach Resort is her effort at making eco-tourism truly supported by the community. Supporting Pannzian Beach Resort provides work for the local community too which is a plus factor for us. Will definitely go back and recommend this to others.

      Your Little Piece of Paradise - Pet friendly”

      It was my husband's birthday and getting out of the chaos of Manila during the holiday (FEB25) was a relief, the trip was long but it was all worthwhile. Pannzian did not disappoint, we were welcomed with a very hands-on owner and their resident dogs, the staff is so courteous (this is their greatest asset) and so accommodating (it's like being greeted by your aunts and uncle hence it's like visiting your long lost family). The location was superb to get away and be hidden (but not too lost) it's like unplugging your wifi and detoxing with technology, the facility needs some improvement but I guess since it is expected - that the theme is to "live simply" there are not much expectation around it - but do not mistaken - the cottages has hot and cold shower and AC - the bed though can be improved a bit more to accommodate foreign travelers (specially those on the heavy side) but other than this - all the basics of life is here, the food can be improved (kudos to the owner who took our thoughts around this -just simply knowing that he thought about improving the Menu list is a good assurance that there is more to Pannzian in the future to come). other activities to do on your visit -- is to visit the Spring (be ready for a 30mins nature walk, wear a hiking shoe or just simply remove your slippers- it's a muddy walk up to see the spring but it's a great surprise up there!), last on the list of A+ for Pannzian - is they welcomed our Golden Retriever and I bet any other pets that will be arriving - this place is heaven for pets , with the span of property to roam around our Annie was delighted making our sons so happy. Pannzian is our little piece of paradise at Pagudpud and will surely come back -

      Nature Embraces you as you enter the gates of Pannzian Beach Resort, with a lush garden filled with plants and flowers, did I say they are edible too?! , greeted by their two friendly beach guides Mucho and Tagpi made me and my kids feel at home, as we approach their receiving area gumamela lay was given to each and everyone and a refreshing calamansi –tanglad juice was served as our welcome drink indeed a great start for our vacation. Walking the path towards our room you will be communing with nature at its finest with the cool air and the sound of the waves crashing over the shore surely makes us think that this is no ordinary beach resort. A room facing the vast sea was superb, seeing how resourceful they are from their ornaments to the food they put on your plate. The feeling of serenity and calmness filled the moments of our stay. My kids and I enjoyed the river adjacent to the beach, I think that was a genius idea. We can’t wait to be back and once again experience a secret

      Foods and Views

      Me and my girlfriend really had a great day of staying at Pannzian Beach Mountain and Resort. The thing that I really cant miss was their food. Monggo with fried chicken, I dont knowhow they made it so special where in fact cooking Monggo is so easy. As a matter of fact when we get home, I cook Monggo, trying to get the same taste of their Monggo. hehe.. The thing that I've enjoyed a lot aside from their food, is the place, so peaceful, it seems like we own the whole resort because that day they have no other customer aside from y\the two of us. It's our first trip ever, and I'm very thankful with the people of Pannzian Beach Mountain and Resort for making it extra special.

      Definitely one of the best destinations in the North”

      As Tita Bing (the owner) puts it, the place is not just a resort but a destination. It is for people who prefers experience over just the fun. The place is best for those who want to disconnect, reflect, and meditate. (no Globe signal, no wifi, no TV - but that's okay because you'll never run out of things to discover, to do) There are a number of activities available at the resort. We enjoyed the Pannzian Spring and its natural pool. There's the river, and then, their own organic garden. There's the bonfire, the guitar, the board games. All fun. The food was just fantastic! And their ice creams, just pure love. The staff were all warm and accommodating. We were lucky to have met Tita Bing who would make you feel at home. Her stories - the stories of the place, the food, and the people - will make you appreciate the place even more. Pannzian is more than your usual beach resort. It is a destination, an experience on its own.

      Excellent location by a long empty beach”

      Location, staff, comfort

      I stayed just one night at this place on my way from Vigan to Tuguegarao. Pannzian is some 30 minutes after Pagudpud and situated by long and empty black sand beach. Waves are quite big here because of the open sea but none the less, it is excellent place to swim and chill. Cottage is very comfortable. Hot shower. No wifi or tv but you really don't need them. Staff very kind. The only negative thing is the food. It is very very tasty but the prices are over the top - several times more expensive than in other similar places across the Philippines. They would say it is good for 2 people but not really. Maybe for 2 filipinos, not for 2 Westerners.

      My husband and I stayed i Pannzian for 2 nights. We are planning to come back for 5 nights the next trip. The best food we had in Ilocos. They have their own garden. We met Bing. She told us the story of how the resort started, how they train the staff and how they plan new items in the menu. They have friendly dogs Labang, Mucho and Lance. Mucho guided us to the river. Lance was my husband's life guard while my husband was in the ocean. There is so much history in this property. My high hope is that they will not change!!!! The staff are very friendly. Bing and to her staff thank you! We will come back!

      Great view. Serene. Friendly staff

      I had a memorable stay at Pannzian. I chose the resort because of its view and being close to both ocean and mountains. Every morning, I woke up to the sound of the waves hammering the coast of Pagudpud and the chirping of the birds. I had no chance to swim in the beach because of the strong waves but I enjoyed the hike to the spring and the water was so refreshing. The beach is perfect for morning walk and yoga. More so, the staff are friendly. The resort is also Eco -friendly, more reason for me to like the place. The resort is a perfect place for those who are looking for a quite getaway from their hectic schedule.

      Nature within reach”

      Surroundings, Comfortable Room,

      Our stay at Pannzian Beach Resort was very relaxing, and the place owes it to its surroundings. The gardens are very well-maintained; lush trees are everywhere. It provides a much needed disconnect from technology, and that gives you enough opportunity to bask in nature. The resort fronts the beach and offers varying lodging preferences (camp, cottages, etc). It is also worth noting that bonfire is free of charge- it was a lot of fun hanging out near the seashore and roasting marshmallows. While the charm of the resort is its being off-the-beaten path (located at Pancian), it proves a bit challenging going back here when it's dark, if coming back from the Blue Lagoon area. It gets a little creepy as the roads do not have ample lightposts. I appreciate that the food they serve leans on the healthy side, but I find the taste a bit bland. Not sure if it was just timing, but dining at the restaurant hall is uncomfortable with all the insects gathering at anything that emitted light.

      Peace and quite, the food

      Only stayed for one night since Pagudpud is just our first stop in our Ilocos tour so i was not bothered that their rooms has no television...they also do not have any internet connections but i dont mind that too. The hotel is conducive for relaxation (they also offer cheap massage and its good). They have an excellent view of the beach and just a few steps, you can also check out the panzian river. What i like abt this hotel is their food (try out their monggo-- really delicious) and their friendly/smiling staff. The only thing i dont like in this hotel is their hard bed and small pillows (they also do not have a pool). But over all, i still like this charming hotel.

      Best for Nature Lovers!”

      The Pannzian River

      We got upgraded to Cottage B, thanks to the lovely and gracious owner Ms. Bing Sta. Maria- Alonso. The staff are well trained and very courteous. Even the dogs that roam the resort are well trained. This resort is ideal for those who want to have peace and quiet, to relax and to take the stress off the busy life. The owner purposely did not put television sets inside the rooms so that guests can devote time to talk to each other, read their favorite book, read the Bible and pray, or just simply sleep. As is expected for beaches in Pagudpud, the waves were huge and so we were not able to swim. But the resort has a river which flows to the sea and that we enjoyed. The fresh water which flows from the mountains is fit for drinking according to the locals - but of course, we did not dare. We also got a bonus guided trip to the falls which is a '15-minute walk' from the resort, although for the uninitiated people like us, it was a '30-minute trek'. Should not be missed! The resort has great selection of native foods - try the Pansit Sisig and drink their Adams coffee and lemon grass tea!

      Family getaway”

      It was a long drive going to Pannzian but well worth it as we have the resort to ourselves. We arrived 6 p.m. and was welcomed gladly by staff. We were served cold mint tea & it was new so we enjoyed it. We were taken to our room, Cottage A with 2 queen size bed. It is good for 4 people. Bathròom was small but we managed. Room was situated a little far but we enjoyed the quietness, serenity and being the one of two party guests in the whole resort. Staff were very nice and they remember our names. Thank you Manang Cynthia for srrving us dinner,

      Superb experience”

      Amazing place, bonfire, people

      One of the best hotel and crew we've ever been. Amazing people, not to mention their labradoddle pet Lance is the sweetest pet in the planet, hes adorable and my girlfriend loves him. Me and my girlfriend really had a great time together in the resort, quiet, peaceful, and able get along with a breathtaking, extremely beautiful Godmade nature, its a good place to hang out esp if youre a natute lover, the food was awesome esp their pasta langonisa(a must try dish). Furthermore, they were also offering a tour package within the area for a very affordable price, its a whole day tour so you could spend time exploring the wonderful places around the vicinity. I also encourage everybody to go to a 15 mins hike to experience swimming on their nearby hotsring. Thank you so much Panzzian Beach Resort for accomodating us, really looking forward to go back in the place. Wheng and Vanz Pascual.
