Acea Subic Bay has become in recent years an ideal place to host an international level triathlon. I first swam the leg course of their beach last February 2017 during the Tri United 1 Olympic distance triathlon but my family and i didn't stay at this beach resort. A month ago we decided to check it out.
We checked in for one night and the service was very good. We were checked in quickly and were given welcome drinks of sweetened lemon/lemon grass/cucumber concoction. Very refreshing.
We (myself, wife, 2 teenage kids) were escorted to our room. However the key card did not work and we couldn't get in right away and waited outside while the escort went back to the desk to get new key cards. The room itself was decent sized with 2 queen beds, a 36" flat screen tv, a well appointed bathroom. Amenities were close to 5 star. We had a balcony that overlooked the infinity pool and beachfront. This room on the 2nd floor was more premium priced.
The beach as i mentioned was nice though far from Boracay quality but it was clean. The pool on the other hand on the day we were there was murky. The breakfast buffet was very sparse which was disappointing considering the price we were paying. We did not eat meals at the hotel as we drove into Subic Bay area for dinner and lunch. What's nice about this resort is it is away from the maddening crowd of main Subic area. So it was at least peaceful. WIFI was strong and the gym was nice.
Overall a very good stay but for the price we expected more.
