Review: Cordillera Family Inn (Vigan, Ilocos Sur)

First and foremost, allow me to apologize profusely for the very poor photos that you’ll be seeing. We’re tired to death when we arrived at the hotel on our first night in Vigan. 16 hrs of driving is no joke so by the time everyone entered the room, we have no energy whatsoever. And all my blogger duties are thrown out of the window.
That’s us! Trying our best to smile even if all we wanted to do is eat and sleep. :)
We actually stayed in Cordillera Family Inn on our first and last night in Ilocos. On our last day, we decided to just head back to Vigan and travel back home the next day coz we are all too tired. And since we liked the service of Cordillera Family Inn during our first night, we decided to stay there again. And they even gave us the same room we stayed on our first night. Inangkin na talaga namin ang Room 22.
Cordillera Family Inn is situated at the very heart of Vigan. Just one tumbling away from the famous Calle Crisologo. I guess that’s one thing that’ll make me want to go back to Ilocos. We we’re not able to really enjoy Vigan during the day. Lagi kais kaming dumadating ng gabi sa Vigan sabay alis ng very early the next day.
Anyway, when we arrived in Vigan on our first day, we had difficulty in finding the place. I have a map (literal map) and our ever reliable GPS on our mobile phones but there’s an event that day that blocks our way. So we called Cordillera Family Inn and they so helpfully guide us. A guy was even waiting for us a couple of blocks away since we need to park them a little farther from the Inn because of the event. The guy helped us with our things and is very nice.
We got a room for 8 pax for only Php 3500 inclusive of breakfast. We are actually not aware that we have free breakfast until the next day when we checked out and the nice lady told us that she’ll just pack our breakfast for us. Score!
I was the one holding our budget and is tasked to make sure that our 4K per pax budget would suffice. So this extra meal is great for my budget. Tapos breakfast for 8 pa talaga ang ni-pack nya kahit 7 lang kami. They are so honest and extremely friendly. One thing that we all want our accommodation people.
Anyway, since I don’t have a decent photo of our room allow me to just describe it you. It has 1 double deck bed and 4 extra single beds. I small telly, 4 small side tables and a huge rest room. I tried my best to search for a photo of the restroom but this the best that I found on google.

See that huge double doors? That’ll lead you to the spacious rest room. One thing I hate about some resort is the fact that they one have one small restroom even if the room is for groupies. Waiting for your friends to finish up with their bath duties takes so much time. But Cordillera Family Inn has this one covered. Upon entering the area, you’ll be greeted by a huge mirror with a long sink. You can brush your teeth or do your make up and blow dry on that area. To the left are 2 toilets and to the right are 2 shower areas with hot water. It only took us around 30 minutes to freshen up when we arrived and then leave for Café Leona. That’s waaaaay too fast. Thanks to the huge bath area Cordillera Family Inn! Nakakain kami agad!!
We went back to the place on our last night in Vigan. That’s when we decided to check out the famous Calle Crisologo and got ourselves some longganisa. Upon check in, the nice staff told us that we can avail the meal either on dinner or for breakfast the next day. Memorize na ata nila yung 4:30AM call time namin.
We availed our free food for dinner coz we know we’ll have a very early day. Our options are longanisa, tapa, tocino and daing. Most got Tapsilog of course and then we got ourselves some Pinakbet Pizza from Café Leona. Solve!
If you’re planning to visit Ilocos and wants to stay in Vigan, I highly recommend this place. Good food, good service and nice amenities. You can never go wrong!
