Located in a vast tract of land, the first thing I noticed are the big parking spaces. The dominant color of the buildings is brick red, reminds you of the buildings inside the Harvard University campus in Massachusetts. Inside the hotel there is a courtyard with a fountain, a game room, music lounge, swimming pools, and a hot air balloon ride. The rooms were just fine with the usual amenities present although some updating needs to be done. When in Laoag, a stay in Fort Ilocandia will always be worthwhile.
