              you'll never know

              I never thought that there is a hotel worth staying in Laoag. This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are well maintained. The facilities are nice. The place is clean. There is just one downside, the internet connection sucks. Other than that, everything else is nice. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Laoag, either alone or with the whole family.

We arrived late afternoon and to our surprise, we were fetch by an exclusive hotel couch... we felt extra special that the people who welcomed us were well dressed in uniform and very formal. With regards to our rooms, it was very clean and nice. We enjoyed much the swimming pool and food, although the serving was very long, its ok because food taste good also.

              The hotel was big and the people were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and they provided us free bottled water. We are completely happy with our stay. It was a little hard to find at night and there were no signs on the highway directing us to the hotel.

              the hotel is new. the room amenities were beyond my expectations for the price i paid. The hotel has a large pool and wonderful sitting areas where guests may lounge and pass the time. the only issue i have is the coffee shop. they serve good food at reasonable price. however, they have relatively few choices that breakfast is more egg than anything.

              we stayed in the hotel during peak season (holy week), so the staff were quite occupied with the numerous concerns of the guests. they did their best to accommodate requests though, and gave the service a more personalized, human touch. although at the start of the stay there was tension (credit card facility not working, elevator shutting down, and some other quirks), by the end of the stay all was well.

Accommodating staff except from 1 front desk clerk who seem to be confused with room locations. Food is fine but it take us 45 mins to wait before it was served. Pool is nice. Fountain is nice during night time. Thank you Plaza Del Norte management and staff.

              Positives Good size room, compared to the other available accommodations around the area. We had a great view of the pool from our room. Nice and quiet. Negatives There was no internet connection in the room even though the lady at the front desk said there was. Also, we had no options for breakfast. We had very tough beef tapa, scrambled egg and rice. Drinks available were coffee, water and iced tea. For our first day, the water heater didn't work so we had to call front desk to have it fixed. They were able to fix it in a few minutes. For our second day, the lights suddenly didn't work while I was in the shower. After calling, they were able to fix it as well.

              Needs Improvement ”

              The place needs to be fixed. Shower head was busted. No elevator. Coffee was sour. Common toilets had dirty towels on the floor. We could have gotten better for what we paid.
