iCove Beach Hotel Subic Bay
#123 National Highway Barretto Olongapo City, Zambales, Philippines
Visited by Major Grubert
The hotel is very close to the nightlife, in fact it’s slap bang in the middle of it. It’s possible to walk to all the bars. Nevertheless, the hotel is still quite peaceful with it being out the back in the direction of the beach. It has a small pool and wellness area. The beach is “around the corner” from the main entrance in Subic, so it’s pretty close by.
The building is quite new, prices are reasonable for the standard on offer. I have never stopped there myself but took a look because a friend recommended it. The facility and rooms are clean and very nice.
If you smoke it’s best to get at least a deluxe room, standard rooms don’t have a balcony/terrace, there are only non-smoking rooms... of course one is allowed to smoke as much as one likes on the balcony... The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are well equipped, offer the usual standard for the upper price class.
As far as I’m concerned, currently the iCove hotel offers the best value for money in Subic Bay; it’s central but still peaceful – it’s close to the beach as well.
