By the Sea Resort Hotel is the best resort to be in Subic. Upon check-in, we head out to the Island Restaurant for a Filipino feast. The servers are friendly & helpful especially in menu choices. Afterwards, we went to Keni Spa for some relaxation. We make sure not to pack our day with too many activities so we can...

The room was unbelievably badly maintained and there were holes in the door-no dead lock or secondary lock -extremely old...

While the ingredient selection may not be too great, the mongolian buffet at By the Sea is a great Friday night treat. All you can eat, beachside, for P275 is a pretty good deal. The live entertainment was a girl singing to a videoke backing track, slightly too loud (what else is new in this country!). I haven't stayed at...

I've stayed here on two occasions, the first time in 2014, and again this past December. The first year I booked into a "parkview" room,which was decent for what it was, but had a terrible mattress on the bed (i'm not usually too fussy, but this was pretty bad). I asked the desk and was told I had to book...

Our family stayed 4 nights in this very comfortable hotel. It is right on the beach, with great views of both sunrise and sunset. There are, however, two problems: the water of Subic bay, and the sleezy atmosphere on the street outside the hotel. The water in Subic Bay is very polluted, and if you walk down the beach, you...

Rooms are clean and the staffs are friendly. They need improvement in the timeliness of serving their food. It took us around 45 minutes before we had our breakfast. Overall, the hotel is good value for money.

But due to the typhoon, we weren't able to push through with our stay. I immediately...

I have been her with my family 3 times already in different years Place is quiet, relaxing and they serve a great food. The only negative aspect is that a lot of vendors approach you at the beach..... I understand the situation but sometimes they are really insistent.
