Bayfront Subic hotel is one of the small, new hotels along the waterfront, few meters away from SBMA HQ. Nothing beat its location and the hotel itself is nice since its fairly new compared to the other hotels in Subic (see website for pictures). For a small amout, you have the option of getting the room with the beach front view (2,900+ as of 2007).
The bay walk is just in front for night time partying. All strategic places are within walking distance- from the family oriented restaurants such as Jerry's, to the mid-wild Sibil and to the irreverent but recently popular Neptune Bar. Hotel has transport services to and from strategic locations such as Ocean Adventure park but a bit too expensive, so better use your car if you have one. Pool is accessible inside the hotel.
One issue I have with the hotel is its breakfast. Worth 170Php, its not worth the money (few options of low end food like sardines, corned beef or tapa). Worst, they would even charge children of any age of the same buffet cost. The hotel I guess is "owned" by Koreans with the Korean motif and Korean restaurant but not sure why they would serve such food. Better take your 170 to Pancake House, which we did for the children (except ours cause we do not have any choices as it is inclusive of the accomodation cost). But ordering separately, I would say their Korean food is fairly okay.
Overall, the accomodation is worth it and just ignore the food nuisance. Knowing it before hand would prevent the feeling of being shotchanged. I would generally still go back to this place.
Unique Quality: Not really that unique.
Directions: Near SBMA. Waterfront Bay.
Stayed at the hotel for a few weeks last December and really enjoyed our stay. Its a new style hotel (not renovated barracks like some) and is centrally located along the boardwalk area. Not much of a beach access there, but the sunrise and sunsets are amazing. The pool is a bit small, but for the price and service of this accomadation, its more than worth it. The best part of the stay would have to be the service. In travelling all around the world, I would have to say The Bayfront hotel ranks up in the top percent. So good, I'm returning again this December!
Bayfront is one of Subic's newest hotels / inns which were made in time, intentionally or unintentionally, for the recent SEA Games. So being new, it has clean rooms and fully functional equipment such as shower heads, water closets and airconditioners.
We liked the room that we got because it was facing the bay and it was lovely going outside the verandah late afternoon. My husband and I did not need to go outside to enjoy the view of the bay.
The rooms are built surrounding a small swimming pool. I found it quite charming. Something like the set of Melrose Place.
Selection in the breakfast buffet is limited compared to the full spreads that you have in big hotels, but tastes good and fills your tummy, nevertheless.
This is a good place to stay for a couple or for business travelers. Families with small kids would love this, too, particularly because the pool is just there.
