I have stayed at the Mangrove on 6 different trips and it is always a great stay. The location is ideal as it is easy to walk to restaurants, shops and the beach. The pool at the resort is clean and refreshing as is the beach at the resort. They continue to make improvements at the resort. From work on the rooms to added items to menu. The staff is always great and help to create a very welcome environment. The rooms are very clean and spacious with nice views.
I have stayed in several hotels in Barrio Barretto over the years and this is by far the best. My room was immaculate with an excellent shower and lots of hot water. There's a good restaurant; very suitable for families as it is quiet with lots of space and a great view out over the bay. If you want something with a bit more going on, the Blue Rock is around the corner. The only significant negative was the ongoing building work during the day - adding a fifth floor as far as I could make out. It will be interesting to see whether an elevator is added - it needs one!
Great location. Friendly staff. View of the beach is breathtaking. Pool is very clean. WiFi is not that strong but is expected if you want to de-stress from social media and just enjoy nature and the resort's amenities. New year party was very lively, song selection by the Band was excellent and everyone enjoyed the set. The Pinoy Freddie Mercury was very entertaining. Highly recommended especially for families.
Another excellent time over Christmas and new year. Despite the busy season all the staff from reception, to waitresses, kitchen and cleaning staff always attentive and helpful often anticipating our needs. The beach was clean and swept daily, boat rides and jet skis available. The food is purchased almost daily so is very fresh and well presented and cooked. Good TV and fast WiFi throughout. Would thoroughly recommend for anybody wanting a weekend away. Reception can quickly organize transport and there are a couple of supermarkets only 5 minutes walk away.
Very accommodating staff. Clean and spacious rooms. Well maintained pool and an awesome view of subic baloy beach. Shoreline is very short though. A great place to relax and dine with your family. short drive to subic freeport if you want to go on shopping. A little bit pricey compared with nearby resorts but it was worth it! Highly recommended.
