Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in San Juan
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

It was our first time in san juan la union and we decided to stay at this resort.

At first we didnt want to check it out due to the bad reviews but we were tired and we just wanted to rest from our 5-6 hr bus ride. Its a good thing we did!

The staff at the information desk showed us a couple of rooms and we chose a room at their Rhoda Building. The room was native in style. A/C was working fine. The cr was a bit small and there was no hot and cold shower. All good for the P1800 we paid for the night.

Good thing we went on a weekday. It was only us and another table dining at the restaurant.

The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was great. Seafood ihaw ihaw! Buko Halo Halo! Loved it!! try it!

It was just nice to hang out at the resto looking at the beach. Went surfing for an hour! I was able to stand and ride a wave with the help of the instructor! Loved it! Its a different kind of high when your riding your board!

All in all it was the best day ever! Loved the beach! The sun! The waves! The place!

Truly an awesome day!

See you again soon "sebay"!

Sebay Surf Central is a beautiful place to stay and relax during vacation. Its our third time to stay at the resort. The staff are nice and friendly. We always order the food sets on the menu. Its enough for me and my friends. Just order rice cuz its not included.

The resort is at the heart of the surfing area. We love surfing! We went during the surfing season (bagyo days) and recently this summer. Too bad there were no waves. Go there during the surfing season :) we'll be back on june again :) hopefully there'll be bigger waves then.

The room we stayed in was good for our group. My friends and i stayed at their new rooms located on top of the reception :) the a/c was cold. nice to just lay on the bed after being out on the heat. the only con was there was no hot and cold shower.

We'll be back. We'll bring our whole family next :)

had fun :) all within the budget :) not too high but not too low :)

Room Tip: rooms on top of their reception area are new. its not near the beach area but the a/c is really cold...

Sebay Surf Central used to be one of the go to places for lodging and food before and last weekend, I went there to check for accomodations and have dinner, I was greeted with very horrible service. The place on the exterior looks nice, looks like it was renovated but besides that, nothing really good was there. The food was bad, even though it looked cheaper than the ones beside it, and the service was the WORST. It took them more than an hour and a half to serve ONE dish, and it wasn't even a dish that required so much effort. The servers were very rude and forgot to even serve water despite numerous times they were reminded. I just hope this place gets new management, a major overhaul because it's just really unsatisfactory to be there.

Sebay is not far from town center, and it's right on the beach front. The facility itself is okay, not the nicest, and not the newest, but good for the value and staff is fine. The only thing was that there was no water heater in the shower, so colder shower it is.

I made reservations for 4 rooms a couple of weeks ago, only to find out upon arrival that the hotel was undergoing a complete renovation and that most of the accommodations they advertized were closed. Very, very disappointed that they did not have the honesty of letting me know before hand. Based on the fact that I will never be able to trust them again, i certainly will never be a client of them again

Room Tip: Wish I could, all rooms but our 4 were being renovated

Pros:
- right smack where the surfing action is
- friendly staff
- decent and cheap barkada room. We paid 3,500 (?!) for a room that is good for 8 people.
- they allowed us to check out at 1:30pm without charging extra

Cons:
- food was a bit pricy
- you can hear the people in the other rooms
- no hot water
