I read some negative reviews of this place so was bit worried when I booked but it was really great, it was cheap, rooms are what you pay for, and just couple minutes walk to the main area and you are 10 meters from the sea. Great kitchen there as well and I rarely eat at the place I stay,...

I booked this hotel through Agoda and upon arriving I was a bit disappointed of how run down this place was. I checked in and the price was 1400 pesos, they escorted me through a open room full of diving gear and in the corner was my room. Small window, very dark and not clean at all. On top of...

We were at Johan's in the week after Christmas. We followed two PADI specialty courses in a row. The theory of the courses was explained well and in a nice and relaxed way by Johan himself. He reacted with criticism to our map of a wreck we drew and that is a good thing. You should learn something from it,...

Thanks for the mostly positive respond of your staying and diving at Johan's beach and dive resort. Your stay was unfortunately in the Christmas and New Year period, that's when we have the yearly struggle with our workers who want to go home to there families all at the same time. We had people from the maintenance helping at the...

Really dirty unclean hotel. Positive is its on the beach. Upstairs rooms floors nearly falling out under your feat with the rotted floor boards and rusted joints. Apart from a goid beach location is that the rooms are cheaper than most hotels here but still should be half the price. In need of a make over or a BULL DOZER!

I stayed with my wife and parents at the blue rock resort and did 4 dives over 2 days at Johan's Beach Resort. The next time when we visit subic bay we will definitely stay at Johan's beach resort. The staff there was super friendly and the dive master is top notch! The dive was seen to be well maintained...

I went their with friends altogether 6 people. The rooms were terrible and uncomfortable. The staff wasn't friendly at all. It felt like we were bothering people in their own house. I tried to dive with them and felt like they were doing me a favor. The Divemaster was pretentious and lost me, his only client during the dive. Could...

It looks like you are describing a different place, maybe you got the name wrong. Our rooms are comfortable and I see no terrible things inside, could it be the movie on your flat screen TV? Our staff is among the friendliest on Baloy beach if you treat them as your friendly waitress and staff. We love to be bothered...

Visited Johan's for a 2 night break. First time there. The bar and restaurant area is very big, right on the beach. Their food and drink prices are very reasonable, even for a tourist location.
