Booked this hotel for 4 nights but checked out after the first night. The accomodations were clean, but really basic & after coming from a 4-5 star hotel in Manila, this just wasn't up to par. I would rate the hotel about 2 stars. The hotel was running a rainy day promo so the rate was Php 2975 or about $66 US. You get what you pay for. The rate even included free dinner for 2 adults, but it's a set menu & the food choice wasn't worth more than a couple of bucks. We had an oceanfront room, which had a legitimate dead on view of Subic Bay. But with the constant rain, the water was a murky color & not much to look at.
The bathroom was the biggest turn off for me, the shower stall was so high you really had to hoist yourself into it! There were no frills type towels & no amenities or little extras like a razor, shower cap, etc. I don't even think there was shampoo, just soap. Again, you get what you pay for. We needed an extra bed, so for Php 400 or about $9 bucks they threw a crummy mattress on the floor & covered it with a sheet. They brought a pillow, but no blanket.
The lobby is quaint & upon arrival you think you might have happened upon a hidden gem. The decor is homey, like a little european inn (or something out of a Disneyland Theme Park made to look like it's in Europe). But get into the room & it's just the Philippines!
I found it odd that they ask you to pay your entire bill up front! We figured it was because they didn't want you to leave prematurely. But we were given a refund for the nights not used. Some of the things that we encountered: 1) taxi service from the hotel was un-reliable, 2) a/c was not working properly, 3) live music & noise from the bar kept us up.
If you're on a budget, stay here, but for those used to better accomodations stay at the Lighthouse Marina Hotel 2 buildings down the waterfront.
