Where to stay
Balai Mestizo is managed by MVH Hotels. The same management team that manages My Vigan Home Hotel and The Monte Costa Resort. Guest are assured of high standard of cleanliness and hospitality.
Nestled by the banks of the rustic Mestizo River is what used to be a family home turned into travelodge. The place was rebuilt and refurbished with each of the 7 children having his/her own room, but since the children dwell in their own abodes, the family decided to share the place to groups who want their own home in Ilocos. Now, the place beckons to guests and visitors who wishes to get the “feel” of Ilocos countryside living.
