Hotel Bahia Subic
Reviewed April 8, 2012

I travelled with my husband and my son for the holy week. We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in April 4-8, 2012. Here is what i think about this inn.

The good points are the price and location. The price is very affordable. It's the cheapest I found online along this area. It is about 2125 pesos a night with breakfast during peak season for a family of 3. They have limited parking space - only good for about 7-10 cars. The parking is NOT that secured but the Subic police always roam the area, so I guess it's ok. They also have free wifi, just ask the front desk what the password is. The wifi is strongest near the reception, so getting a room near the reception has an advantage. There's no bell boy that will help you carry your luggages to your room. You bring it, you carry it rule as you would say.

We were given room 102 - very close to the reception area. Wifi is great but very noisy at night. Our room is close to the boardwalk, were they always have an activity at night - so it was really hard to sleep with all the noise. Cleanliness was also a little problem. I am not expecting a 5 star cleanliness but it is a plus if it was. I don't think they do vacuum their run down carpets. When we tried moving the red chair at the corner of the room, we found a lot of dirt and even a dead cockroach. Although, they do change the towels everyday.

Staff is generally ok except the very cold reception lady at night. Their restaurant is undermanned. During our stay, there was only one or two waiter/s. So if the bar/restaurant is full of people, food comes in late and cold. The food was also inconsistent with the taste. You can choose either filipino or american breakfast. My son loves pancakes and fresh milk or hot chocolate so I pay extra for these. But when they run out, they don't try to replace them and made them available the next day. Always double check how much they charge you, there was an occasion that i almost paid double if I did not ask for the list of my orders.

Generally, it was an okay experience at this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room far away from the boardwalk area for a more quiet room at night.

We often stay at Boardwalk inn ( 2 adults + 1,- 2year old & yaya) & service is always good, staff helpfull etc.
beds are kingsize & rooms very clean & comfortable.(no views from windows though)- they only charge extra 250php for extra bed too.
No swimming pool though, or gym (hence this is not a 'resort'), but place is right on beachfront, with shops & resturants nearby- very 'family orientated' place.

Recommended

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are the same 'standard' so it doesnt really matter where they put you

Right next to the beach and the lighthouse (so what if it is not used for navigation any longer... it certainly LOOKS good!) - this is one luxurious place to stay. We had a convention here for 4 days - all 4 days, i spent mornings takign a walk along the beach cos it was so close! Breakfast was hearty, for lunch and dinner we had a buffet which was good.

The rooms are really good - some (the pricier ones) face the sea, but frankly you are always 2 steps from the water which ever room you stay in.

Service was great - as is always the case in Luzon Phils (wish it was so in other places too)

If you don't mind spending more (this is the most expensive hotel in Subic SBMA CBD), this is THE place to stay

We stayed at this nice beachfront hotel for 3 nights/ 4 days. Hotel staffs are very accommodating and warm (thanks to ed, cathy & jacky). Rooms are average but comfortable, bathrooms are clean thou without bathtub. Free parking is not a problem. The hotel is just a few steps away from Texas Joe’s Steakhouse (juicy ribs/ great steaks), and Seafood by the Bay. It is a short walk to the Oriental Casino and Gerry Grills. The Hotel Bar/ Restaurant has a great view of the bay where beach activities are held (jet ski, banana boat ride, beach volleyball etc). It is a walking distance to Pier One (if you want to listen/ dance to good rock and roll music), Guilligans (for acoustic band) and the Lighthouse Hotel (London Bar). San Roque Catholic Church is just a few blocks aways. The only downside, no swimming pool. I also suggested to their staff to replace their room carpet to either vinyl tiles or wood parquet considering this is a beach area. We enjoyed our stay at this friendly hotel (booked for 2 nights and extended for another night). What i liked best in this hotel? ....their location

Room Tip: book early
