Our team selected this place for our annual corporate outing and team building activity because booking was easy and we were able to negotiate a good discount with the resort owner.
From Manila, travel time was around four hours passing through NLEX and SCTEX, through Subic and SBMA, and on to the road to Morong, Bataan. The road to Morong, Bataan was a bit confusing and we missed a junction and ended up in Bataan Technology Park, an industrial zone which looked like a ghost town. Good thing the guard at the gate was friendly enough and let us pass through the industrial park going to Morong, Bataan, otherwise we would have backtracked and lost another hour of travel time.
My family tagged along for our outing and we were given a huge room at the ground floor with two queen-sized beds and an extra rollaway bed for the kids. The air conditioning unit, while a bit small, was adequate for the room but it was a bit noisy. The smallish bathroom had hot and cold water which was good for us and the kids. The restaurant menu had limited choices (and expensive prices, too), but our team brought along food and drinks and we cooked our own food on the outdoor grills.
The pool was very shallow at 3-4 feet so if you're a tall person the water will just be waist deep. The beach, however, is just outside the fence and you can go swimming in surprisingly calm waters with waves that are less that a foot high.
For some water adventure, you can rent a banca (small boat) to take you to turtle island, a turtle sanctuary where they lay their eggs and baby turtles get cared for until they are ready to take on the open sea.
Overall, for a family vacation, I would rather recommend staying in Camayan Beach Resort in Subic. The trip from Manila to Camayan Beach resort will be shorter (2 hours only) and you will get to spend almost the same amount for food and accommodation anyway. Camayan's proximity to Subic also offers more exciting choices for family-oriented activities other than beach and swimming.
