Victor Hotel (Jose Panganiban)

Hello guys! I missed you and I missed blogging but I’ve been really busy these past weeks. And I’m only getting my blogging mojo back just now. I hope you all are doing well!

BTW, this post is about our stay at Victor Hotel where we spent a night during our short trip to Jose Panganiban, Camarines Norte. This would be my second time in Jose Panganiban. The first time we went there was last year during All Souls’ Day. This time, we paid respect to the remains of Yoy’s aunt, the ever glamorous and nice Tita Iyah.

We weren’t able to see much of the town because we were pressed for time. Travel time from Naga took more than 3 hours because of the ongoing road constructions and heavy traffic. Some of the roads are still really bad, particularly in the Cam Sur areas.

Before I talk about the hotel, here are some snapshots I was able to take when we tried (and failed) to go to the breakwater (sigh!). Apparently, the breakwater is the favorite hang out in town. We failed to see it because every street we tried to pass were blocked. Yoy thought he remembered the place of his childhood but we never made it to the breakwater lol.

This (below) is Victor Hotel where we stayed for the night. There are only two hotels in Jose Panganiban, the other one is APOLONIA HOTEL, which was also featured in my blog last year.


Our room was spacious enough to accommodate 5 adults and 1 kid. It had two beds (1 double bed and 1 queen bed) and very basic actually. It was relatively clean but the bathroom was old and smelled of like a strong ammonia odor. One more thing, if you need to charge your phone, your name better be Sherlock since you will need the skillset to find the only electric socket in the room (very much hidden under the dressing table, so pushed back you’ll need to look really hard to find it) .

THE ROOM (Sorry for the mess though………..)








I’m not showing you the bathroom because it’s my least favorite part. What’s better about this hotel though compared with Apolonia Hotel was that they have running water 24/7 while Apolonia only had trickles every now and then.

I hope someday we’ll get to explore the quiet little town of Jose Panganiban and its beautiful beaches. Right now, the impression that I have is it’s a quaint place with kind and smiling people.

Thank you for taking the time to read! =)

I liked the security and stability that my job offered. However, I really miss writing and I miss hearing myself think by reading my own written works. Eventually, I plan to write more and to find out where my love for this craft might take me. Every life is a journey and I believe that it is never too late to do what we love and what makes us happy.
