I stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights and I had no problems. Food was great, rooms were really good and the staff were always helpful and nice. I have stayed there for couple of times and they always exceed my expectation. Definitely the best hotel in Subic.

Service was great, rooms were clean, and food was okay.

Just a few things I wish they'd do something about. Maybe a thicker material for the bathroom curtains. I'm not comfortable taking a shower, and people in the room seeing my silhouette. Also, they should have a secure/guarded parking area

Overall, it's value for money.

After a hectic week on the road negotiating the highway traffic and ever present tricycles, this hotel was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Our light filled corner suite was so beautifully appointed with breathtaking views of bustling Subic Bay and 2 balconies to enjoy it from. State of the art 3D TV was fun and the beds were comfy. Nice spa and hot hot water for a good relaxing soak.
The Pool was great during the day and come night time there is no better place to be than sipping cocktails poolside from the resort bar. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance and you can promenade down the board walk to Pier One for some live music each night...be aware however that the music is of the KTV variety. The 'disconnect' with Subic town centre may not be to everyone's liking but for us it was a much needed respite from the busy towns and highways of North Luzon.

Room Tip: Room 323 is a must...the most expensive but well worth it.

Stayed here over a long weekend and had high expectations of the hotel based on the good reviews.Booked thru phone 2 queen beds in an aqua verandah room and paid the 2nd to the highest room category in the 3rd floor overlooking the beach and swimming pool. I was surprised to see NOT 2 queen beds rather 2 DOUBLE beds in 54x75in. I asked why that was the case as the website clearly stated queen beds under 'bed specification'. They apologized for their mistake of falsely stating such and as a form of apology, they gave a discount on the extra person charge (1650 down to 450 pesos) and even sent an apology surprise in my room in the form of a cheesecake. Also, during our stay, the days were quite rainy. We were extremely shocked to hear the rain drops and thunder vibrating inside the room. We called their attention and they said that the contractor of the hotel did something that wasn't right to the ceiling of the hotel (failed to make it soundproof I guess) thus, resulting into such. Light sleepers would not even be able to sleep during a rainy night in that condition. I hope they do something about it.

The hotel was very modern and nice. The service was impeccable. There is a playroom for kids with toys and games for free. The swimming pool has a kids area too so u can just relax and watch them swim. There were complimentary cookies with free flowing hot chocolate or coffee. It's a great place to chill especially if u have small kids. Not mentioning its proximity to shopping and other adventure places in Subic.

The facilities and the service were very good but I couldn't give a higher rating because the food was far from what I would expect from a hotel at this price range. The food was a big let down. Had too much MSG. The coffee served during breakfast was in a percolator and turned sour and undrinkable. Hope they work on this.

On a brighter note, the room was excellent. The shower was great. The bed and pillows were so nice and comfy that i fell asleep as soon as I lied down.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The most lavish and magnificent Subic Bay experience. Like a beacon that steers boats to shore, this magnificent establishment on the Subic waterfront can serve as a venue that beckons travelers seeking world-class comfort. Our Commitment: Lighthouse is committed to creating value and improving guests' experience. We have this genuine interest in our guests' evolving needs, thus we invest in our infrastructure and our people as we strive to provide a compelling guest experience. Our company was built on serving and satisfying guests and meeting if not surpassing our guests' needs is always our No. 1 priority. The Location: 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's main building provides a perfect compliment to the 20 meter light tower done in surprising detail very faithful to naval architecture specifications. Its exclusive location hidden in the midst of the busy Waterfront Road makes it the ultimate haven of retreat. The Lighthouse was established in 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: Proximity and ease of travel are always a concern for many people who are trying to escape the hustle and bustle of life in the metropolis. Just less than a year ago, Subic was a grueling three to four hour drive from the city capital. Today, all roads lead to a tranquil location, a journey of heightened leisure, traversing through a scenic paved ultra majestic highway newly built to serve as the main vein of the Manila-Subic connection, the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway. For a relaxing and inexpensive travel, the flicker of light at the Lighthouse Marina Resort just got brighter. A perfect vacation haven away from home just got closer. Its exclusive location hidden in the midst of the busy Waterfront Road makes it the ideal chill out place within the shorelines of Subic Bay. ... more   less
