“Ovenight Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is the first time I have stayed in this resort hotel and this is just an overnight stay since it is for a CSR activity. The rooms are clean , the staff are all very accommodating, excellent service . However there is just on little thing that bothered me, I stayed at room 100 and the door bangs really loud if you dont hold or guide the door it until it is closed. Most of the hotel doors I have stayed in, the door closes very gently, lightly and no sound at all even if you let go and dont hold it.....
Otherwise everything is nice, and for sure I will come back to stay longer!

Stayed here, because of work. But I didn't enjoy the hotel experience. Mainly because I was busy working. :)

When it comes to packaging, they're good at it. The location is a bit far compared to others, but its okay. There are good restos and accommodation nearby . They have beachfront and pool. :)

Staffs are cooperative, since we where their for work and we tied-up with them as our official residence. :) They are all ears to what our team needs, and there's always someone to approach or assist you on something.

If you want to have a gathering or event and you need a nice location in Subic by the sea. This is one of the places you should check out. :)

I would want to return here but not for work, but w/ a special friend. It seem romantic during the night. Hahaha. :D

Room Tip: If you dont like the noise, dont get the room on the ground floor.

Before staying here (with an academic group) I checked out the reviews on Tripadvisor ... and saw several saying it is a wonderful place and that the food is fantastic.

That all seems a bit weird to me. Sure, it's a comfortable hotel, and the rooms are nice. But it's a small place, with a small pool overlooked by the hotel itself ... not exactly luxury. The upstairs bit of the lighthouse bar (which promised much on the website) was closed.

And the food is very average hotel fare. Nothing to complain about at all, but nothing to get very excited about either.

All in all, it is a good place for a night, but I can't imagine staying there longer.

We stayed in The Lighthouse Marina Resort for three nights. All staff made us feel very welcome and served delicious breakfast during our stay. I would say that this was the best and kindest service I have experienced in my travels so far.
The room was very clean and compact but a bit cozy. Free wi-fi was available everywhere in the hotel. I would highly recommend The Lighthouse Marina Resort. The quality and value of this hotel was excellent. In fact, I plan on staying there the next time I visit Subic!

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.

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
