There are many hotels in Subic Bay. They have road and seaplane transport that can be arranged from manila.They are famous for their pasta and have wireless internet ad 18 rooms so may pay to book in season..




There are many hotels, resorts, apartments, guesthouses in Subic Bay but the most convenient for the average traveller is the WILD ORCHID OR THE BLUE ROCK HOTEL or HARLEYS OR TREASURE ISLAND ON THE COAST a stones throw from each other. Blue Rock owners are Australian and they have a good business here but lack WIFI internet in the rooms but Ok in the restaurant??? Treasure Island has WIFI as does Wild orchid and Harleys . The beach is not much and the sand not white but its OK for RnR and you don't see deck chairs like Pattaya beaches. The views are of the ships anchored ready to come into port but its OK & popular the Island and Blue Rock have floating bars where you go out on a raft to drink on the floating raft. All have good meals in true Aus fashion but you dont get drinks with breafast which is unlike Thailand (ask for glass of water is OK). The rooms are excellent as is the Hawaiian staff?? decor but watch your fridge ( the laid might say you used more than you used when you check out of the Blue Rock??? as happened to us)????

. The buses will drop you right outside the door at any Hotel you choose but their are all apartments and Apellettes you can stay if you want cheaper digs. . Another Hotel at the back of this is the HARLEY BAR & HOTEL which is UK/Swedish management: Baloy long Beach, Barrio Barretto, Olongapo City, Zambales, Philippines 2200. Tel/fax: (+63) 472246922 or email: or website: so take your choice on what you want.

Sheavens Hotel next to Harley Hotel and Blue Rock. Ok to stay meals not 100%

REVIEW OF HOTELS IN SUBIC BAY: They are dearer than Thailand but eat out and drink out. Theres not much to do there but if you want beaches head south in the Philippines. A day or 2 in Subic Bay may even be too much? as thers not a lot to do except watch the boats, get pissed and write your book?

Try the jeepneys if going into town from the Blue Rock or Wild Orchid or Treasure Island Hotels/Resorts. The small sidecars cost 25P to get to the main road and the trip into town is only 12P. Subic Bay is a rip off place at the Hotels really and the beaches are not as good as Thailand. In fact about 10 metres behind the jetskis based at the Blue Rock the sewer runs right into the sea and theres lots of plastic in the water probably due to the rivers being choked with plastic bags. For a couple of days Ok go to Subic but theres better places to spend your time in the Philippines if you want good beaches. Have a look at the rivers and klongs in Subic and that will make your mind up about swimming at the resorts????


Make sure the Hotel you stay at has wireless internet. Most are free to use and the speeds are OK. With your adaptor just check if you have problems normally ot will be the Hotels twin point inlet power supply. They are like Thailand--useless so don't blame your laptop as the problem will be the wall socket.. If staying over 1 month you can get internet with prepaid kit for 200P from CATV LOAD. Subic CATV is (047)2322020 in Barangay IIwas, Subic, Zambales or you can also also for Channel TV as well. Monthly rates up 384kbps =1600P 640kbps = 2110P and 896 kbps = 2600 P.

Bring just light clothes and buy what you need here. Its cheap to buy clothes For BARS ETC GO TO [ BANGKOKGO ] website coming soon but see more pics of Subic Bay on [ Subic Tours ]

Subicwater Co. discharges raw sewage from the Central Business District into Subic Bay from an outfall located on the bottom of the Bay, eighty feet under the surface, directly offshore from the Chamber office. Subicwater will not build a sewage treatment plant to treat the raw sewage it is now dumping into the Bay even in 2009. Subicwater is obliged to invest and construct a main central sewerage treatment plant in SBMA to eliminate sewage outfalls to Subic Bay and it's been 11 years in operation and nothing has been done--warning to swimmers.
