This hotel is recommendable for those who like to chill and unwind because it is located quite far from the beach party area. The rooms are nice and clean. 5 ⭐️ for the ambiance and aesthetics. Double thumbs up for they offer buffet breakfast and they have spacious parking. The bar upstairs is good also for nightcaps and Friday night music. Staff are accommodating as well. It would be nice if they can provide shuttle going to the center.

From Check in to Check out, Patio never failed to provide the very best service for me and my friends who visited San Juan. Their rooms are adequate, the staff are definitely hospitable and they provided us exceptional and quality assistance during our stay.

They have a shuttle to the parking lot. They are professionals, really!

Most importantly they always greet you with a large smile everytime you go in and out.

The vibe is warm and all throughout the duration of our stay I felt I am home.

Lovee ittt!🩷

Great in Photos …needs to improve guest experience.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Went to see what the fb hype was all about.

The lobby and common spaces interior design is great. I hope same care went into choosing atleast normal house quality bath faucets, showers,robe hooks and tissue holder.

The composite cabinets were water damaged and rotting. The paints were peeling off.

The bathroom accessories like robe hook, towel holder and tissue holder and faucets were the saddest and cheapest quality I have seen in the hotel and airbnb business from one star to luxury.

The quality of painting,the bad tiling and cheap construction , plus the makeshift curtain rod that was supposed to be hidden in a curtain cove contributed to the final sadness that any guest who was mesmerized by the lobby lighting and beautiful furniture and facebook photos would feel.
Definitely, not worth the room rate I paid for.

The hotel, also did not provide proper cloth hotel slippers and instead cheap rubber slippers that caused my skin allergy. They have no pool or sea to actually use rubber slippers in lieu of cloth so this is dangerous and off-putting:(

Hmmm. Sayang! The staff are well-trained and good pa naman and the hotel provided a good breakfast and bamboo toothbrushes.

May be the best hotel in La Union.

Place is relaxing, and everyone and all the staff feels in sync. (You constantly feel everything is in a good flow).

All the food was great. You can really taste that all were prepared with care. Texture and flavor are all balanced. (Prices are really good considering the quality.)

Finally, the coffee is really great. It is easily specialty coffee quality.

Overall a great place that feels easy and doesn't try hard.
We can easily sit around the hotel with just the accommodating staff, relaxing ambiance, and good coffee.

Dogs dogs dogs are everywhere! I made a complain why dogs are permitted in the restaurant! the answer came that the owner allows it! Animals are dirty, dog's hair are fine and suspense in the air, unhygienic and causes allergic reactions to many people. The room I stayed in also smells urine.

I cannot stress enough how much we loved our stay here. Not only is the place very nice and classy, the customer service is just top notch! Plus, they're dog-friendly! The staff is so nice and well trained. The only downside is the parking at the back but they made it convenient anyway since there's a shuttle going to the front desk.

Thanks also to our friend who told us about the place. We definitely plan to stay here again when we go back.

If you're looking for a quiet, premium, and just a short distance away from the famous places in La Union, this place is just perfect.

We stayed for one night just to experience the life in La Union for a short time. The hotel is very clean and has a unique design of interior. They offer 2 restaurants inside the hotel and they are pet friendly! However, the price is too expensive for a small room.
