As a native of Olongapo City, my family regularly visits the place about five to six times a year to bond with friends, observe national holidays, or to simply get away from the hustle and bustle of life in Makati. We have sold our old house so we have no choice but to stay in a hotel in the adjacent SBMA, the former US Naval Base. We were here again 30th and 31st October for the All Saints’ Day celebration. There are several accommodation packages in SBMA but my family particularly likes Subic Park Hotel for several reasons.
Subic Park Hotel faces the beach where my wife and I could jog or run early morning or lazily walk by the Subic Bay waters as we gaze at the sunset. There is a clean swimming pool with just enough size for our 4 year old grandson to frolic in the shallow portion and for my two big boys to swim around. Wife and I enjoy the hotel decors that make one feel at home with its thematic, rustic decors depending on the season of the year. We have seen the hotel transform into a Halloween house or a Christmas world. During the Holy Week, the hotel is dressed in appropriately relevant manner.
The rooms are sanitized every day with fresh new bed sheets and towels. The staff are particularly friendly. The complimentary food can still be improved maybe with a gravy or a soup on the side (choose breakfast or dinner) but one can order additional viands from its restaurant. The pork BBQ by the beach bar on weekends is excellent. Internet access is available only in the lobby and the restaurant. Would be nice to have internet access in the rooms, as well. Parking is not a problem. I have made several reservations via the internet and the hotel has always been reliable.
Know what? We already have room reservations for the New Year celebration where the fireworks are excellent. But sorry folks, I have grabbed the last room available for December 30th and 31st. For my classmates coming over for the OCNHS High School Reunion Batch ‘74 on 25th January, you may not have rooms anymore for our favorite hotel if you don’t click their website right now.
