Friendly, welcoming and accommodating staff. The rooms are a little outdated but if you're on a budget then it's sufficient. The food is delicious, compared to the surrounding bars and resorts, it's well priced! I would definitely recommend getting a massage by Tita Lisa, you'll feel so relaxed!

Don't go here. All the bad reviews are correct. The only good reviews he gets are from his mates at the bar and divers. There are amazing divesites here yes BUT he didn't create them and there are much better dive operators in town. Plus i watched him take people diving who couldn't swim which is dangerous and one lady... More

We run our resort at this place for 13 years and scuba dive for 40 years in a way that is best for the customer and us but we can't please everybody. We will always have persons who want to create there own rules out of the order for other guests. We teach our staff to be helpful and friendly... More

We went to this beach resort for lunch. Their dishes, mostly European, tasted good. The beach was nice and clean compared to other beach resorts on this area. Another plus is their free wifi in the beach restaurant.

rooms are average with old bed sheets, blankets and pillow cases....not to mention limited pillows....even if you request for extra (for a fee)....and thin mattresses. some beds are make-shift ones with just a foam on top......bathroom with defective fixtures and water pressure is really low. if you want cable tv...there is an additional charge of P50 which is okay but...

Had lunch with friends,great value for money and an even greater selection of European beers, I went there to inquire about doing some diving as there are lots of wrecks in the bay thanks to the Japanese bombers. As for the diving I think I will give it a miss at Subic as the beach is filthy with used nappies... More

If you're looking for a place to stay and dive the wrecks of Subic Bay, look no further. Johan's was the first week of a one month dive tour through SE Asia.  As a dive professional and business owner, Johan's met and exceeded all expectations I could have had from a dive centre. Although I always bring and dive my... More
