Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte: Kapuluan Vista Resort - Hotel Review

Kapuluan Vista Resort is a peaceful and beautiful resort hotel located along the coast of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. It's quite surprising that there's a hotel at the slightly "secluded" part of Pagudpud beach that offers one of the best accommodation and amenities in Ilocos Norte.

I am a beach person and I feel relaxed whenever I spend time just sitting on shores. Though at Kapuluan Vista Resort, the beach front was not that good because of the sharp stones and shells, the view of the ocean and as well as the sunset was still marvelous!

Ilocos Province's Pagudpud Beach is very famous in the Philippines and a 2-nights stay was perfect for me! A well-ventilated room and a comfortable bed should suffice my comfort requirements. Here were some of the resort pictures first so you'll have an overview of how Kapuluan Vista looks like:

The good thing about the hotel is that they have their own indoor swimming pool where guests can relax and have some chit-chats and cold drinks over the chilling night of Pagudpud. The pool wasn't that big but it's fine for me.A company of friends will make the place better.

Dormitory-Type Room

TRAVEL TIP: The toilet and bathroom at Kapuluan Vista Resort's dormitory type accommodation is communal wherein 4 dorm-type rooms share for 1 common toilet for males and 1 common toilet for females. 

The resort has it's own restaurant that open around 6 AM until 10 PM. The foods served were very delicious and highly-recommended to try especially their Kilawin and Dinakdakan, and what's unique about their cuisines is that most of the ingredients came from the resort owner's garden. The price was fairly reasonable as well.
