A 3-hr drive from Manila wasn't so bad at all. I had fun during my 2-days stay at Crystal Beach. San Narciso is 4th town after Subic Bay Freeport. I've tried sleeping in the tent rental fee php 350/pax wherein a tent is good for 2 pax, complete with matt, blanket and pillow. You can also bring your own tent... More

Stayed here last March 2014. Staff are very courteous. We stayed in the Malachi room - the room is just okay for couples but the washroom is VERY VERY SMALL. :( Food is soooo yummy esp the chicken barbeque. There's no night life though so it's quite boring at night. Beach is very clean and well-maintained. :D Surf instructors are... More

Went here with a group for team building and all around fun. You could find a lot of things to do around the beach. Ideal for surfing and other water activities. Ironically, the waves were too strong for swimming during our visit, but you could opt to set up camp, play beach volleyball or walk along the shoreline. Accommodations were... More

A very nice resort.. Not crowded and very affordable... Very spacious. I guess the reason behind why it is not crowded is because it is very hard to locate...you have to go through narrow streets.. About 6-8 hours of drive from manila but it is worth it. I super love their unique cottages.. I'll surely go back :)

This is a surfing area so be prepared for big waves which is the major come on in the area. This is the nearest place from Manila to surf as it is a mere 2.5 hrs from Balintawak toll plaza. Resort is wide with many trees which makes it breezy the whole day. Huts for rent have a/c and with... More

Went here with my friends last year and i totally loved it! Food was good. Staff was very accommodating. It is certainly one of the nicest places to visit and stay in if you wish to explore but have a tight budget. Apart from surfing lessons, they also offer an array of other impressive outdoor activities that keep their guests... More

For adventure junkies like my friends and I, we definitely enjoyed staying in Crystal Beach Resort. It has one of the best and most affordable menus among any other resort we have stayed in in Zambales. The rooms and the toilets could use a little more cleaning but nonetheless, for the price we paid we were pretty much satisfied with... More

Went to Crystal Beach in December 2013 and it was AWESOME! The rooms were dorm-type - we got the attic-type one and thought it was pretty interesting. Food service was affordable (they had large inihaw platters, SO GOOD), Toilet/bath were above average, sleep quality was good, and we had a blast exploring the area all day. It's a big stretch...
