Nice resort

Posted 04 22, 18
Pros: The food was great but a bit too salty for most meals. There was a nice selection of bath soap and shampoo to use. It was very quite and dog friendly
Cons: There was a lot of effort to ensure our privacy, we were on our honeymoon.
We were grateful for the early check-in at 8AM after traveling from Quezon City to Laoag. We took the bus from Manila to Laoag and decided to use the car service from Laoag to King Fisher. It was expensive to use the car service P3,500 for one way from Laoag to King Fisher. We rented the “premier” room for 2 nights and then downgraded to the deluxe. Both accommodations were wonderful, of coarse the premier room had more to offer, including the coffee beans and coffee maker. We traveled to Laoag and visited Fort Ilocandia and decided to move hotels after experiencing the drastic difference in weather and beach conditions. The beach at King Fisher has too many rocks and shells so if you want to walk on the beach or go swimming make sure to bring the proper footwear or your feet will hurt for sure. The staff is amazing and they did a wonderful job making sure that our stay was a memorable one.

Relaxing little hideaway

Posted 02 5, 18 on Hotels
I spent a few days here in January, 2018. A great little spot right on a long uncrowded stretch of beach. I walked along the beach for over a mile and never ran in to another person and there are no other resorts along here. Popular kitesurfing spot, although I didn't know that when I booked it. The staff was very nice. The email communication prior to arrival was very quick and helpful. I arranged an airport transfer and the staff member was waiting when I walked out with a sign and the van was new and comfortable. Being an animal lover, I loved hanging out with the dogs and bunnies. You can even borrow a dog to accompany you on a hike or out on the paddle board. The restaurant was ok. There weren't many options for vegetarians but the staff did try to accommodate that. The room was nice and very quiet for sleeping. Due to limited time I didn't get to explore the surrounding area, but understand there are many things to do. I will come back again when I have more time I can spend.

Nice hotel but beach not suitable for swimming

Posted 05 23, 17
The hotel is far away from town proper. Rooms are good toiletries included. We booked 2 cabanas and both okay. It is suited for Kite surfers. Beach are not suitable for swimming very rocky and loads of seaweeds. Hotel staff are good apart from one person the receptionist. My brother made an inquiry re putting up tents by the beach which was actually stated on their website there is a camping ground which would suggest putting up tents are okay. The receptionist was very rude to my brother and she was very unprofessional. I suggest to either hire someone better and fire her or re train her. I know their target markets are more on people from abroad but taking care of the locals and treating them the same as foreigners would be better since even locals pay the exact same price as people from abroad. Just a thought for the owner. The owner Mon and the other hotel staff are good. Overall I probably still recommend this hotel if you are a kite surfer but if you are traveling with family with small kids and expecting nice beach to swim in this is not the resort for u.

We loved our stay! The kids enjoyed kayaking and swimming while the adults enjoyed the peace and quiet. The staff members are so nice and accommodating, even their dogs, specially Toby! The food they serve is also good. It's quite far from the hi-way which makes it a perfect place to disconnect from our usual busy lives -- literally and figuratively! I strongly suggest you read the About Us page of their website prior to booking so there are no unpleasant surprises for you.

Room not same as photo, No CR, no security guards

Posted 12 23, 16
Pros: With room service, recreational activities,
Cons: All I have said above.
Location: Nothing here
In the middle of no where and no security to make you feel secured. No breakfast with room stay. Staff were not attentive. Serving while eating with rice on her lips. Noisy staff that talks about their own things. Owner and manager not as entertaining. Booked for 3 nights but had to leave after one night and had to sleep in my car due to security concerns. Management did not even show concern why I left hurriedly. It says by the gate that they do not let in walk ins for security reasons but the gate is open for all to enter since there is no security. Common bathroom is dirty. Bookshelves obviously have not been cleaned for years. Smoking area in the dining is not designated. Poor or no cellphone and internet signal.

the pick up at the airport and scenic drive back

The best part of the stay at this resort was the people who work there at pampering you and catering to your needs.
