Had an awesome 2 night stay here in early Dec 2017. The property is not the newest but well maintained and clean - clean in the rooms/villas and the grounds are maintained, kept clean, and bug-free too. We saw pest control technicians working on our second morning there.
We stayed in B3 which might have been called El Sol. It's big and spacious, even the bathroom is spacious. It is on the ground floor and has a small outdoor (lanai/terrace) seating area right outside the bedroom. I loved having a kitchenette in the room although we did not get to use it and there were no utensils/dishes/cookware provided. Our room had 2 A/C units, one in the bedroom, the other in the living room area. Both worked very well.
Staff at the front desk, cafe, security, housekeeping were all nice and courteous. We felt that they genuinely wanted to make us feel comfortable and to enjoy our stay. They all did their best to give us whatever we asked for. The ladies at the front desk were extra patient with us while we were making our reservation and inquiring about rooms and rates. Security personnel checked on us in our room to make sure the people following us were our visitors and reminded us that guests are only allowed till midnight.
Our stay included buffet breakfast. The first morning it was set up and served outdoors by the pool (which is right outside our room). They might have had an event in the cafe that's why they set it up outside. The next morning, breakfast was set up in the cafe. Some of the breakfast items change daily. Pretty standard breakfast selection. Check with the staff if you have any requests like if you want your eggs cooked a different way than what's on the buffet.
Note: Food not purchased from Moonbay can only be consumed in-room.
The swimming pool was clean. It was cool and breezy after sunset but we went swimming anyway and had a good time. We wanted to use the hot tub but it was not on so we asked a hotel staff to turn it on.
It was a suprisingly awesome stay. Now I'm hoping I could go back soon...and include a visit to the waterpark.

Another wonderful hidden gem with in freeport zone inside SBMA. Located steps away from the waterfront and around the corner from Pier 1 resto/club , and a mini mart it's a perfect location for couples, bussiness, and families. For it's price, its a decent bargain. The place is set up like mini townhouses around a pool giving you a warm welcome and feel of a vacation club. My only complain is that their breakfast buffet is a bit mediocre but what they have to offer on their regular menu is pretty good. Nice cafe breakfast bar. It really has a feel of a "hands off" location giving you the maximum privacy for your stay.

I stayed here for a week while in Subic Bay for work.

The location is close to "the strip" and the beach front starts one block away. They have a great pool and hot tub that is in the middle of the community surrounded with covered tables and a couple outside bars. The food they serve here is about middle of the road but the kitchen is open late and the service is good. I ended up with a suite. It was nice size for two people. It was outfitted with a sink, two burner cook top, a fridge, toaster oven and hot water pot. There was ample cubbard space but no dishes or silverware. The "living area" has a nice loveseat and small kitchen table. The bedroom had a king size bed that was a little on the stiff side but did the job easily after a long days work. There was also a snakk closet, shelves and a mirror with a chair/desk spot. The bathroom has plenty of room yet only had a stand up shower. The water did get fairly warm.

The strange things..... there is one tv, it's in the bedroom not the living room. The only garbage can was in the bathroom and there were no pots, pans or dishes for the kitchenette.

All in all, my experience here was pleasant. I would consider staying here again upon my return.

I went here for our company outing. My roommates and i were assigned to stay at El Viento. The room was spacious, cozy and clean and had good connection to wifi. The hotel was well maintained. The staffs were commendable. The hotel has relaxing ambiance. However I don't recommend the place for company outing. The pool is small for all of us and they dont have function rooms or place for gathering. With regards to food, they served generous amount but the taste was not that delicious.

We always go back to stay in this hotel, because of the rooms itself. Spacious and Convenient, aircon is well maintained, comfortable bed. I love the room ambiance and most important thing wifi is very strong. Although we never get the chance to order any food because we always ate outside.
