      Totally enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Arrived at 1pm, they allowed us early check-in. Checking-in was a breeze, the staff were very helpful. Location was a big plus. TV was not functioning, though who would watch TV when you went to Subic for a swim. Restaurant was not yet open but a nearby Central Park Reef resort has a good restaurant. Will definitely stay here again.

      Lovely beach front hotel. ”

      The hotel has completed a major expansion recently and the result is awesome. I will definitely stay here again. Hints: Ask for a room in the new wing (the old wing is still good, but the new wing must be nicer). And don't include the free breakfast on your booking, you will be very very disappointed. Either order from there ala-carte menu or go for a walk to any of the neighboring restaurants/resorts. I particulaly like Harley's Bar for breakfast.

      Great location”

      We were traveling with kids and about 3 families booked for Executive room. The place was I supposed newly renovated, room was spacious, limited toiletries and towels. You have to pay extra cash for additional towels. Breakfast was plated no other choices. Unfortunately, the service for breakfast and dinner was not good due to surge of customers. The beach was okay but a bit dirty. Pool is not large only up to 5ft and not maintained well. Over all, it was okay and we would come back but I think the hotel must keep up with the maintenance, understanding the value for money that a 3-4 star hotel offers within subic.

      Great location ”

      Good place. Staffs are very accommodating. They, however, did not clean our room until i asked them to clean. They said that i needed to display the “request to clean” sign to the door for them to clean it 🙃. Overall, it’s a great value for money.
