This was our first out of town experience with my then eight-month old son and we had a really great time.

We did not expect to be checked-in early because we figured we can just go around Subic first while killing some time, but to our delight, the receptionist was the one who offered to check us in early. That was to signal the start of a very pleasant experience with this establishment.

Getting to our villa was the next wonderful surprise. The place was immaculate. It is well-maintained. The villa has a cozy living room, a small dining area, a kitchen equipped with a refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster, coffee making machine and a bedroom with a 42” LCD TV. The bathroom has a private toilet and shower and a bathtub. The sheets were crisp and clean. The toiletries were complete. The design of the villa is also warm and inviting. Our friends stayed at a La Luna villa while we were at El Sol. Each villa evoked a different vibe and were both calming and relaxing. The two-storey structure is located just in front of the swimming pool so it’s very convenient to go back and forth, in case you need to get something. There is also ample parking outside the resort. If you need to stay connected, they offer free wi-fi too.

They have an al-fresco restaurant that is reasonably priced and the food is above-average. We ordered the chicken parmigiana and it was one of the best I have ever tasted. The service however, was a little slow. We also decided to avail of their eat-all-you can Monggolian feast for dinner and it was also a treat. If you want to dine out, the place is also accessible to other restaurants such as Dencio’s, etc.

For those with kids, there is a playground with a see-saw & swing so the little ones have an alternative play area apart from the pool.

While the availability of a videoke near the restaurant can be a plus for those who want to sing, to some, the late night singing can be a snooze-stopper. It’s a good thing our room was located far from where the videoke machine was, otherwise, it would have ruined our entire vacation.

The pool area is well maintained with beautiful lounge chairs and cabanas. There is a splash pool which is good for toddlers. I had my son stay here first before taking him to the kiddie pool which was about waist deep only. For the adults, there is a 5 foot pool and a Jacuzzi.

Over-all, I totally enjoyed our stay at Moonbay Marina Villas. If my son could talk, I’m sure he would have said the same thing.
