My husband and I are planning to visit Laoag in April, and have been reading through some of the postings on this forum. We are trying to decide between Fort Ilocandia and Java Hotel - any one out there who has stayed at either place? Which one is better? Also trying to decide between Saud Beach Resort and Kapuluan Vista Resort. Would really appreciate some referrals for a rental car in the area - was hoping to go to Paoay Church/Malacanang of the North when we arrive, Vigan the next day and Pagudpod the following day. Does anyone know how much is the going rate for cars? Thanks so much in advance for all the help!
