This hotel is owned and managed by Farinas family, the well-known family of Laoag also holding the Farinas Buses Company (The one you usually used to move from Laoag to Manila and Manila to Laoag). We stayed 3 night at Java Hotel in April 2019 in a double bed room. This hotel has a restaurant, a bar (Very nice one), swimming pool, a gym room, a climbing wall, a tennis court, some stuff for children. This hotel is quite big with lot of places to stop have a rest. The main floor is mainly made of wood bridges to join the different places, the roof is classical (Nypa Style). We really like the design of Java Hotel and we feel really comfortable like in home. The stuff is well trained and know how to take care, the best point in our eyes!
