Not a Resort but Feels Ok For a Night Stay
We were in Vigan last February and we're looking a decent place to stay overnight. City hotels are fully-booked so we looked for a nearby hotels and found Ovemar, 5km away from city-proper. We arrived past 10PM and we were accommodated immediately. Breakfast is served at their kubo at the back of the hotel since according to Management, the restaurant at the top floor is still under renovation. The pool is within the nearby house open for the guests but since we are just staying for the night, we prefer to leave early. For sport enthusiasts and chess lovers like me, you can play it outdoors.

Good location
This hotel is located outskirts of Vigan around 5 km towards the ocean. It's very close to the ocean and a walkable distance from the hotel. The hotel itself is ok, although when we stayed the restaurant was closed for some reason so we had to drive to town at night to get dinner! The view from the restaurant on the third floor overlooking the fields and the ocean is all worth it to stay in this hotel. Wifi in the hotel is pretty much of no use! If you don't like the noise and clutter of the city, then check this hotel out.

Not exactly a resort - allthough near to the sea.....
It was good that we arrived in the daytime - otherwise we would never have found it as Google maps location says right where you have to go left. Only small signs put on lamp posts which we only discovered after having turned the car around. When found the location is nice though - very spacious and breezy from the ocean nearby. The hotel is abt. 5 km out of town proper so you must have own transport. If you want to go to the beach, you must drive back half kilometre or jump the rice fields. Anyway the beach is very dirty, so we preferred the owners private pool which is open to hotel guests !!! It seems the property have very few guests and they then try to compensate by overpricing. PHP 3.800 for a 3-bed room with no daily cleaning and poor Wi-Fi. Breakfast included - but be aware that you have to choose between coffee or juice (which is actually only powder lemonade) if you want both you will be charged extra, which is not ok. Restaurant serves tasty and nice meals, but at "city" prices. Anyway the food is definitely freshly cooked as you have to wait a bit for it and you hear the cooking, frying etc. going on in the kitchen. The Norwegian owner was not present while we visited so the huge staff seemed overly relaxed, but surely smiling and very helpful. Some paintwork was on-going inside and outside but did not affect our stay. The room could use a thorough cleaning, especially the bathroom which we found quite dirty - seemed the cleaning in general is a light sweep only. No daily cleaning of room the two nights we stayed !!!!!! - but fresh towels was given promptly when asked for. With some improvement in management, maintenance and a bit lower prices this could be a good place to return to.........

Three days exploring vigan
Very attractive location next to china sea with little neigbors. Good employees and owner lives on property who is foreigners so it is well run establishment. 5 minutes from center of town, with good sea breeze and unspoiled beach.

Beware!!! Read This First!!!
I should have read the previous review before going to this place. I should have just let go of the deposit I made than endure the WORST night I have spent in a hotel EVER. Almost all the bad things they said in the reviews are true!!! First, do not be deceived, this is not a resort! The pool is at an adjacent house (see pic for proof). The beach can be seen from the 3rd floor Resto but you cannot walk there leisurely... you have to cross fields of cows and bleeting goats. Care to know more? 1. No proper signs to the hotel. Google will show you to an abandoned structure in the Twilight Zone but the hotel is still far from those ruins. You need to call the staff. 2. The place is far, far away from the city proper. You need personal transportation to come and go smoothly. 3. The room stank! One reviewer noted insecticide but I suspect it's paint that needed drying. 4. No WiFi at all vs. claim that they have. 5. Staff generally friendly but were useless. 6. Aircon had a rattling sound. 7. Food generally palatable. 8. Free breakfast but the beef was tough. This place is not worth staying in. It is overpriced and I will tell the Booking site about the horrid experiences here. My Vigan trip is affected but I will not let this bad hotel stay ruin it.
