booked here for an overnight stay as i was attending a party next door... facilities need A LOT of improvement (from shower head to towels, et al)... but VERY FRIENDLY and ACCOMODATING staff negates everything... keep up the good work everyone... hotel price was very reasonable...

stayed here for two days and 1 night. they have affordable rooms but a bit cramped for me. however, since you are not in La Union to stay the whole time in a room, this will do.
They have a family room we just stayed at a smaller room.

they have a resto bar but food for me are okay, a bit pricey 'coz their coffee was priced at 65 pesos when it just tasted like an instant coffee.
the lighting in the restobar needs improvement so as to distinguish that theirs is a restobar.

they have the basic soap and towels for free. but i feel there are better resorts for the same price. this will do if you dont have any other choice and if you are not "maarte"
all in all i can say we have an okay stay here

just like the other resorts, no hotels have an ocean view rooms/accommodation which is good for me.

We arrived LU early morning so we were not able to check-in yet but the staff allowed us to leave our bags with the receptionist :)

The room we had was just right for us. It was clean and had towels and soap available for our use. It was a bit old but they have brand new rooms available as they have an ongoing construction.

They have a store where you can buy food, chips, personal essentials in case you'd need some.

Went here as part of our grand vacation to try out a bit of surfing. there is a lot of renovation done but they were mostly finished when we got there. Front desk was very helpful and showed us the available rooms and other areas of the resort although my friend was already familiar as they have been here before. food at their in house restaurant was ok but they also allow you to bring food in without any corkage which is a big plus. their beach front is good and they offer surfing lessons for beginners. Be wary though as the waves are quite strong in the late afternoon.

We booked the 5pax bedroom with bunk beds - situated in the main resort building (with the kubo hut design).

The room smelled damp and mouldy, with the source basically coming from the restroom. The restroom is SO tired and old, the tiles are already darkened with mould/mildew, the faucets are rusty. Kadiri when you slide your feet on the floor. So I when I took a bath I just hurried up in fear of getting sick inside. You will feel like you're accumulating bacteria instead of cleansing yourself.

These old rooms should be RETIRED and turned into storage rooms instead. I dont think they should provide these to guests anymore. Nakakahiya.

There is a newer building, and another new one being constructed though. So maybe there are improvements in those.

The beds themselves are OK. The topmost bunkbed though is so near the roof, you will bump your head if you try to sit on the bed.

The towels are also old, with stains on them. They smelled like they were laundered, but they are stained.

I give this resort an extra star though, for the receptionist who gave me vinegar quickly after I was stung by a jellyfish. (but I had to go back to the icky bathroom to apply it, lol)
