“A beach, fishes, a good room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Deluxe room is great with 2 queen sized beds. Beach is better compared to Batangas, but with a little of Subic's black sand. Food is not that good. Nice if you'r going to Ocean Adventure which is just a few steps away. Just far from Subic freeport zone, not advisable to travel at night since you have to pass by the unlighted roads in the forest. Bring snacks.

Very nice and courteous staff. Nice Beach and Grill. Good price for everything. We went there as two families worth three kids. We just had a hard time in bathing the kids in the shower area. It automatically stops. As a result, we also get wet.

This was our first visit to Camayan. We liked the location, the beach is very small or the hotel is too big! The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff everywhere was very very nice. The breakfast included on the price was ok, but the omelette station was very good. The beach is fine for small kids. If you go to Ocean Adventure you get 20% discount plus you can go as many times as you want.

The food was terrible. The quality of the sausages is very bad. The pasta sauce tasteless, and the cocktails a waste of money. There are lots of nice places to eat in Subic, don't waste your money here. If the food were good I would come back for sure.

Room Tip: We had a Deluxe room at the third floor, if you don't bother about the stairs is a great locatio...

The food improved greatly and the price is right! Wow, I went back to Camayan for dinner after an afternoon at Ocean Adventure. It was the last day of our Philippine Vacation 2013. We had dinner and watched the sunset. If you want to spend the night ask for a room in the new building. THE FOOD is good. The Calamari was perfect and big in size and serving. The fresh fish and prawns were also great with a generous serving. My suggestion would be to shorten the menu. Less choice and focus on perfection. The vegetables were not perfect. My suggestion would be to buy frozen broccoli and quick fry it in coconut oil in a wok. Not that hard. I love this place. I wish I could be in charge of the food!

Room Tip: ASK FOR THE NEW BUILDING!!! if you can afford it or need the space, the Captain's room has aweso...

We only stayed for one night, but I wish we would have been there longer. Nice location away from everything. 40 minutes by taxi to the closest city. You can dive with the turtles and you can see monkeys in the forest. There is also a zoo and a dolphin show close. The staff was very friendly. The food is excellent. Best food I had on my whole trip to the Philippines. The rooms could be nicer, but they are ok.

My stay in Camayan was so far my best resort experience. It is the best not in term of facility, size of beach nor worthiness of money. I like it because it is quite, non-touristic and away from the city.

I learned about this hotel through the Ocean Adventure website... didn't read reviews about this hotel beforehand so i didn't have any expectations and just wanted to have a cozy place to sleep after seeing and experiencing Ocean Adventure.
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised and ended up having a great time. We especially like the following:
- proximity to Ocean Adventure - it's just next door!
- hotel grounds - large area, well-maintained gardens, clean, romantic lighting at night
- beach - clean shoreline, clean water, lifeguard is present, you can already see fish a few meters from the short, plus they have turtle nests!
- people - staff (both hotel and Ocean Adventure) are very friendly, courteous, and accommodating
- overall surroundings - very serene and relaxing, they have a trellis covered walkway to the rooms, directions/signs to restaurant, etc.
- room amenities - we stayed in a Superior room and aside from the usual amenities they provide shave and shaving cream, and an umbrella!
- they also have an ATM machine, which is really convenient considering it's approx. 30 minutes away from the city center

The things we didn't like were:
- having to pay for the other hotel amenities like fooseball, kayak, billiards (my husband and i stayed in a siquijor resort at almost half the price of this one, and the above amenities I mentioned were for free)
- no swimming pool
- very noisy A/C that we had to turn it off at night (probably needs cleaning); good thing they have a ceiling fan
- long waiting time at check out
