Thunderbird Resort: "First class accommodation" San Fernando Hotel Tip by joiwatani
San Fernando Hotels: 3 reviews and 9 photos
My cousin and I came here to meet with my friend who was having a meeting after the HK hostage crisis. I have not seen my classmate for a long time and since I was back in the Philippines, I tried to hook up with her. She is one of the high-ranking official of the Department of Tourism. After the hostage crisis, all the directors of the department have to do a "damage control". So, here I was in San Fernando, La Union.
I was told that they were meeting at Thunderbird Resort. It was a very pleasant surprise for me and my cousin to see the resort. It was beautifull and the view was spectacular! I heard about this many times but never in my dreams that there was a beautiful resort in San Fernando!
The resort has the most awesome building- as if you are actually in Santorini!!!
My cousin and I spent at least 8 hours roaming around the resort- from the swimming pool, to the lobby to the beach! We also checked out our rooms which was the most awesome room I ever had! (For real, the rooms have the most spectacular view of the ocean! And, the bathrooms are like heaven! You are basically stepping into a five-star spa saloon!)
We also checked the restaurant by ordering our breakfast! The waitress was very polite and very courteous. My cousin was so impressed with the service that she said she didn't even like to go home!
After some stressful days at home (I attended the funeral of my father - that was why I was back in the Phils), our stay at the resort was the most beautiful thing I have done in two weeks).
Unique Qualities: Everything at the resort- from the service to the little basic thing I needed was awesome. I was truly impressed with the service and the accommodation.
I enjoyed swimming at the pool because it was heated! I enjoyed the food, the walk around the beach, the hanging out at the lobby, the service of the waiters and waitresses, sleeping at the pool side, etc. Everything was a great experience. I will surely come back here with my children!
