Very Bad
Very Good
Quite satisfied.
The hotel in general was beautiful in architecture. I never saw an elevator so the pain of lifting luggage to the 2nd floor was a burden. No one approached to help me. Anyway, in over all, the service was adequate. The rooms were sufficient and this place is good for conventions and meetings. The restaurant was almost non-existent. No available food on the menu.

Good Venue for Meeting & Training
I was able to visit the Hotel via Training conducted by Mr. Lanlan Lawas & Guestlinks'. The Hotel is located in Laoag, Ilocos Norte. The guest room with a terrace overlooking the pool, & function rooms was spacious & conducive for learning. Food is just okey but the staff friendly complemented it well. The signal is not that strong in the rooms and you have to go to the lobby to get a better one. Pool is great & a little colder considering its location specially in the morning. The lobby has comfortable seats for after training break-ups. Although their are other hotels in the city, yet for training & learning, for me its location & privacy is one of my reason in recommending this hotel

Old but nice
Plaza del Norte is far from the airport. Fortunately, I was staying in the hotel during our convention and a hotel van was there to fetch us. Check-in was quick and easy. The staff were accommodating and friendly. The room I was in had 2 single beds, but can still fit an extra bed. TV was quite old (the one with the Cathode Ray Tubes😊), but it still served its purpose for viewing the news. Additional pillow was at Php 50 (just because I wanted many pillows on my bed). For the bath, hot/cold shower was a big point to massage away the tired muscles during the long trip. Complimentary water bottles were available but make sure to buy your own water because their cafe/room service did not carry bottled waters at the time; however, mineral water by pitcher was also available. As to food, breakfast during our 3-day stay were served as buffet. They had plain and garlic rice, sauteed vegetables, scrambled eggs, dried/fried fish, sweet cured pork/tocino, & spanish sausage/longganisa with brewed coffee, creamer & sugar on the side. Just don't forget to light up your table's candles to scare away the pesky flies. If you wish to order at the cafe or for room service, ask for the available items from the menu. Most of the choices were not available during our visit. The ballroom is just right for the number of convention participants. But please upgrade the projectors and sound system. The lectures were blurry and the sound system / sounds from the microphones were distorted or "basag". It's an old hotel, but nice enough to sleep in and to relax.

This place needs rehab...
+ point: The pool - points: a lot! Room: uncomfortable bed, just 1 thin pillow and a thin blanket. Curtains has holes. Shower curtain is moldy. Heater in the shower is malfunctioning, one minute its cold the next minute you'll be scalded. No bidet on the toilet. Tissue provided is just 1 roll and just 1 ply. Accessibility: far from the city proper, few public transpo in the area, you need to hire a trike for more than a 100 pesos to bring you to the city proper. They offer a non-aircon coaster for P 1200.00 one way! Food: food from the in house resto (Ayuyang) is bland. And for our 3 days stay, the buffet breakfast is just the same, no variety. The food from the menu when you order is mostly unavailable. The pasta arrabiata sucks, and the pansit luglug is not edible (and I am not exaggerating!) Wifi/cellular access: poor connection to wifi even to cellular signal in the rooms. You need to go out in the lobby to get connected. Facilities (other than the pool) : the convention hall is located outside the hotel, which you will traverse the unkempt walkway in the heat of the sun before reaching it. The hotel lobby has no comfortable seat, just wodden chairs. Air conditioning units are only turned on during specific hours of the day, usually from 6-10 am at breakfast, so imagine the heat when you choose to stay at the lobby beyond that hours. Overall experience 1/10 . I do not recommend this hotel. There are way better hotels in Laoag. This hotel needs a major revamp.

Nice on the outside but beware!
A group of us, friends, from California, signed up for a tour of the Ilocos Region. This hotel was our first stop and we were all looking forward to the start of our adventure. It was nighttime and sleep was on everyone's mind. However, I ended up having to try and clean the shower and the bathroom sink due to the mold growing between the tiles, around the sink, the nooks and crannies! I got one of my spare toothbrushes and using whatever liquid soap I had, scrubbed and scrubbed some more so my husband and I can take a shower. I was no match to the stubborn mold but promised myself to get some bleach and a spray bottle in the morning and tackle the problem again. Next....when we turned on the air conditioning, the air was directly hitting our faces as we laid down on the bed. No matter what my husband did to adjust the vent, it went back to the original position. Well....he found some ribbons among our things, took that cover off and tied a ribbon around it to get the vent to stay put and the air to blow away from our faces. During breakfast, the following day, we found ourselves fanning away flies, trying to keep them off our food, our coffee, our faces!! It was an open dining area!! No way to stay a bit longer to visit with friends or linger over coffee. The few conversations we had were comparisons of which room was worse than the other -- the cockroaches seemed to have won the night for some! Oh well, I can bleach out the mold but cockroaches....I still considered myself lucky, then. I gave two stars because the hotel manager took to the complaints well, apologized profusely when shown the pictures I took for evidence, and promised to bring up the issues with the owners. And....the property had a nice garden and terrace area. Otherwise, one star - a terrible rating!
