Sta. Ana Cagayan Valley Accommodation | Jotay Resort

We finally arrived in Sta. Ana. We took a short tricycle ride to Jotay Resort  and we had already booked the room weeks in advance. We payed P 1,200 per night and the Australian owner was kind enough to give us a discount. We haven't had our dinner yet...so we ordered fried squid, sweet and sour pork, homemade french fries, platter of rice and drinks. The  prices are reasonable and everything we ordered was delicious! 

Tuklasera Tripid Tips
  • Book your hotel in advance to get discounted rates
  • Ask locals about the cheapest transportation available


Delicious food at Jotays Resort Sta. Ana, Cagayan Valley

The resort offers free wifi service and we checked the weather first before going to bed. 

Jotay Resort Poolside

The next day, we called our guide and we told him that we will be postponing our Palaui trip today and do it tomorrow instead. We decided to stay at the resort, enjoy the pool, eat and rest for the entire day. You don't have to be a guest of the resort to use the pool. Visitors and non guest are welcome and pay a minimal fee of Php 30.00  per hour to use the pool facility.

Majestic Sunset at  Sta. Ana Cagayan
Golden Moments

We love taking  photos of sunset. The sun is slowly vanishing into the horizon and we found this weird "claw like" tree trunk along the coast . We enjoyed the evening at the resort resto  with a good and delicious dinner. We really recommend this resort to anyone who wants to visit Palaui Island or Sta. Ana.
