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

They will frown, make faces and sarcasticaly answer your queries. Waited for decades for our food and other requests. No TV, the one in the room is just for display. When theres no... More

We answered some of your comments in previous reviews, would you be one of the customers who try to get an extra person in the room without paying and bringing your own foods in the restaurant? A frown (also known as a scowl) is a facial expression in which the eyebrows are brought together, and the forehead is wrinkled, usually... More

We have parking space for three cars and several motorbikes in front of our bar, we keep this place as clean as we can but can't avoid dogs and cats passing by to do there duties outside the resort at the parking space.

we recently stayed at Johans so that I could get my girlfriend open water certified. I normally do not stay in budget hotels, but decided to give it a try. The rooms are in much need up renovations, but the view and the beach compensated for the rooms in that you spend very little time in the room. If you... More
