This hotel blew me away. I did not expect much because of the negative reviews. The hotel is quaint and has a very distinct combination if cozy and elegant. The staff are friendly (security guards, bell service, reception, housekeeping, restaurant staff and even the pool attendant). They look good too. Professional and warm. The room is spacious. And they accommodated our request to put together the double beds because we have a baby. They even have free pastillas candy (milk and sugar candy) and a night cap of either hot choco, tea or coffee.
Room: good size for three adults and an infant. Bathroom is very nice with the rainfall shower and floating tub. They even folded up the towels nicely. They also have bathrobes. Hot water is really hot. They have a fridge, kettle and coffee/tea. The balcony overlooking the harbor is very nice.
Restaurant/food: we only tried the buffet breakfast and it is so good. Not so extensive as a five star hotel with many stations but complete and presented very nicely.
Price: we used our voucher via Expedia. Check the hotel website for pricing as well.
The pool is nice and clean. There is even a reflexology walking path beside the pool. The bay area is not for swimming but is good for walking and just strolling.
The hotel has attention to details. The only bad thing I can say is that I noticed the shoes of the lady food attendant. It is a high heeled wedge. Not very safe for someone carrying trays and walking around. It is also a health hazard. Everything else though is on point.

The Lighthouse Marina Resort is a three-floor, 34-room boutique hotel capped by a lighthouse. The hotel is sleek and ultra-modern in its Palafox-designed architecture. Done in almost austere Italianate architectonics with its elegantly simplistic hotel façade, the hotel main building provided a perfect compliment to the 20 meter light tower done in surprising detail very faithful to naval architecture specifications. It’s exclusive location hidden in the midst of the busy Waterfront Road makes it the ultimate haven of retreat. The Lighthouse was established on 2007 to provide transient residence to executives of business locators of the Subic free port zone; and for tourists who frequent the port more for its sailing and eco‐tourism than its business.Ease of Travel.
