Poro Point, City of San Fernando,
La Union

The finest and only five-star hotel in the Northern Philippine region. It was newly built around mid-year of 2007 and was formally opened on October the following year after almost a year of construction. It was a big boom for the people of La Union as well as the entire province of having this wonderful and awesome place to stay even just for a night of one or two, which would definitely relax you from the stress of work environment and from the buzzing chores of the day. The hotel and resort is a relaxing getaway perfectly for family, lovers, friends and anybody else. I’ve been here to this hotel and resort for thrice already, first I remember just a turn around look of the hotel, second was during the photo shoot of the Search for Miss La Union 2009, which was so unique and fabulous (blending to the beautiful ladies of La Union) from the different towns, and lastly was the wedding of my aunt, that looks like it was taken outside the country but it was taken and held in this resort, really awesome. It was such wonderful setting for a wedding to be held along the shore just a couple of minutes from the hotel itself, a lover could also come to this place just to see the setting of the sun on the horizon of the South China Sea. Can't wait to go there again.

The services were impeccable and incredibly fast in response time. I also had to admit because I experienced it already, very hospitable and respectful to all customers/clients. They served breakfast of local cuisines and fresh buko juice, hot chocolates and among others and also a mojitos at the bar. Food was so delightful at their inhouse restaurant. Bon appetite!

Overall the resort was built in a Mediterranean style and looks influenced from Santorini Islands of Greece. Fabuloso!!! And, surrounding the hotel were great landscapes, garden of flowers and vermuda grass. The chairs are comfortable at the main lobby, from king/queen beds to shower room...really beautiful. And to top , the view of the China Sea is fantastic and manificient, it really amazes you especially the sun that sets down over the horizon.

Getting there

If ever you are passing through the La Union area, I highly recommend a visit to Thunderbird Resorts located at Poro Point, San Fernando City. It is just 2 kilometers away from the National Road. And around 430 kilometers from Metro Manila. By land, bus/van coming from Metro Manila via Laoag, Abra or Vigan are great transport. By air, by domestic airlines bound for San Fernando City, La Union is great too, for escaping the hectic traffic in the road.


Room cost around for Php 5,000.00+ or $100.00+ dollars per night with free breakfast during peak season and as low as Php 4,000 during lean season. Room depends on whatever suit your needs.
1 hour or (60 minutes), special for 2 for 1,200.00 pesos or $25.00 dollars
Golfing (Caddy) Php 250.00 to 400.00 for 9 and 18 holes respectively
Cost of other services, depends on what you get


30+ room of the hotel with flat screen TV, Ipod dock, superb bathroom with complete amenities
Patio Santorini / Pool bar

Golf course (9 hole)
The course was about 100 yards from the hotel. It is a 9 hole course where most people will go around twice. This course is excellent and in good condition. Good luck on the par 3 9th hole with the green just left of a giant cliff over looking the China Sea. The back tees play from 6700+ yards if you go around twice.
