The rooms especially the toilets are dirty and smelly and the flush is not working. This is such an ugly hotel it badly needs renovation. The facilities aren't that good and wifi is not working. Restaurant food is only but quite expensive. I wouldn't go back here.

Nice place but needs improvement, particularly on their restaurant comfort room... Restaurant staff seemed slow, needed to call many times before they responded. They accept major cards that added to convenience. The food tasted nice (especially their Ilocano delicacy "dinengdeng").

They need to take hospitality up several notches. Facilities are disturbingly old and unclean, need to seriously consider upgrades. Food choices are below average quality it doesn't justify the expensive price. At least they have plenty of parking space.

If you are out of budget then this is the place to be. Especially if you just wanted to experience surfing 🏄. The staff especially the manager is not friendly and accommodation. The room is dirty and worst of all the comfort room stinks! The Tv is analog and the signal is not good. Just a warning before you take... More

I loved our stay at Sebay. It's right along the main highway so it is easy to find. Parking is also available. Room is also good but walls are quite thin. It is quite old and has rusty fixtures but overall, it's good for its price. Airconditioning also works well despite the heat and the shower even has a heater.... More

We were a group of 35 people. We booked in advance but when we got there, some of the rooms were not yet ready. When we got to our room, the beds were well arranged and seemed comfortable enough. There was a weird smell though. We found it coming from the bathroom. There was a strong odor of urine. It... More

Six of my friends and I went to San Juan with only one thing in mind: surfing. we didn't know exactly where to get off, to stay, etc, so it was great that the bus driver dropped us off directly in front of Sebay Surf Central saying this is where you'll find the best surf instructors. The resort was fully... More

Sebay Surf Central is right off the highway. It has a accommodations for all types of groups. Be it a couples room, a family room or a big group "barkada" room. The place itself is pretty clean and has ample parking spaces. They also have a guard by the parking lot which is a plus. Sebay also has a restaurant... More

The best thing about staying in Sebay is its location. It is right in front of the surfing action and just beside the main highway. Also right at the beachfront are the surf rental huts where you could get a personal surfing instructor. Rooms are reasonably priced, though the rooms are on the basic side. The shower is not working... More

The room smells like a public restroom and it really stinks. I had to keep myself from gagging due to the smell. The staff are rude and unhelpful. The food is terrible and not worth the prices. If given the chance, I would not want to check in here again.
