I have stayed in two other hotels along the Waterfront Road. One doesn't have a pool. The other one has, but pretty small. Vista Marina's is the best. It's the biggest and has a nice view of the sea.

The pool however is the only thing I like in Vista Marina. The rest of the hotel is in need of a rehab. The room interior is old. The aircon doesn't cool well. And the food is not good. My package came with free breakfast and it tasted...free. I could be wrong but I suspect that it was the dinner buffet from the night before (I went down that evening and the hotel buffet was open but the place was empty).They just added a scrambled egg dish and some ham and sausage to make it more breakfast-y.

The ham was awful. It tasted like it was marinated in the pool. It had a very strong taste of chlorine. All dishes were cold. The bread most especially. And there was no toaster for heating. There was no water station either, you need to ask for a glass. Too bad if you're close to choking (from the ham).

Another concern I have is the non-issuance of pool towels for guests. We ended up using the bath towels in our room, which you need to dry so you can use them again in the room. I had no patience for that so I asked for extra towels and got charged for it (P50/).

There are a couple of things this hotel scored good on. The location. It is right in front of the beach, so you can easily walk to it from the hotel. The beachfront is also clean, unlike the one near the centre of the Waterfront Road which is littered with trash. I must commend Vista Marina for keeping their beach clean.

The other one is the staff. They are friendly and helpful. A plus for Vista Marina.

This part of Subic is becoming more and more vibrant with weekend events and hubs for water sports. Proof is the number of hotels that have opened. Most are fully booked on weekends and holidays. Given this, Vista Marina should be more competitive. I can name one neighbouring hotel where I can get a much nicer room with a much better complimentary breakfast, all for a price that's much less than Vista's.

So their pool is great, but the management of Vista Marina should keep in mind that hotel guests do not live solely on swimming pools, more so if the beach is just a few steps away.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea not the city, because there is hardly a city to view in Subic.

It's located right at the edge of the boardwalk and you can easily walk to the beach from the hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff are helpful and friendly. Definitely worth another visit.

Vista marina is relaxing and unwind place.
The employee around and this hotel very hospitable and honest.
The air was so relaxing because of the mountain around the sea.
That's why my family enjoy the vacation.
