It is not a first-rate accommodation but, then again, it is not trying to be one. Sunbloom will lure budget-conscious backpackers and thrill-seekers who travel in group or family with affordable rates and a staff (ably handled by Sir Allan) too eager to serve and please. Standard rooms are a bit cramped, and unequipped with cable and internet--not that these... More

Brought my family in this resort last May 26-28. It was only supposed to be for an overnight stay, but the serene beauty of the resort made me and my husband decide to stay one more day. The staff, specially Kuya Allan, had been very nice, accommodating and proactive. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Mrs. Maribel Crout.... More

Me and the wife decided to visit potipot island for our first year anniversary. Sunbloom offered the lowest rates around Candelaria so we decided to stay there for the trip. We stayed in their standard room which costs 1,400/night. The room was neat and has a Game of Throne-ish feel to it :) the T&B though was a bit small... More

We stayed here overnight from February 17-18, and we arrived 4 hours early from their 1PM check-in. They gave us 3 options — one, we can go straight to Potipot Island, leaving our other things in the car; second was to stay in the vicinity of the resort and wait until 1PM; and lastly, pay PHP 250 per hour if...

We're sorry that Kenneth didn't feel as though his visit to SunBloom Resort was as good as he expected. We do work hard to keep our rates low and sometimes this means the extras do cost a small amount. Our staff have standing instructions to test all facilities before the room is let out so we're surprised there was anything... More

Summer isn't complete without travel, at least to one of the Philippine Tourist Destinations. The Potipot Island, if I base it on pictures seen from FB posts of friends and relatives was enticing! So this Summer 2014, my family from La Union and my sister’s from Quezon City planned a summer trip to this beautiful island in Zambales . This... More

Rooms were not clean. Bathrooms were not clean. Public bathrooms were filled with mosquitos and dirt. Pillows are thin. No maintenance with the toilet. Unclean, AWFUL bathrooms. Crowded dormitory style rooms. Very understaffed. You get what you pay for.

We are truly sorry this client's visit wasn't up to the standard they were expecting. At Sunbloom we try to maintain the high quality of service for all clients but I suppose sometimes there will be cases where we don't see eye to eye. We would still appreciate a chance to try again but will continue to insist that cooking... More

Thank you, Allan for being so accommodating. It was our first time in far away Zambales that's why I was so anxious and bombarded you with questions even sometimes late at night, but you were really courteous to respond. Our stay turned out to be very worth it. Worth the travel and cost. Your place is clean. That, for me,... More

Stayed for 2 days and 1 night with friends (group of 5). All the staff are courteous and very accomodating. One of the cheapest resort near Potipot Island. Spacious parking, lots of tables and chairs, grilling area and sink, basketball court, with a great view of the island, great beach front too. Rooms and comfort rooms were clean, cool A/C,... More
