Convenient location”

There’s a 7-11 on the ground floor, a restaurant too! A big park is also just across the building. Restaurants/cafes are a few meters away. All the people we talked to were nice. Very helpful staff! Our room was clean too! Though we had a hard time using the faucet and there was no phone in our room. So if we needed assistance, we would go down to the ground floor. They also have no elevators. It was ok for our 4y.o but I’m not so sure if it’ll be convenient for Senior members of the family. Other that those things, we had a pleasant stay :) We will surely come back ;)

Happy to return to The Reef!”

We needed a last-minute place to stay in Subic as we did not want to sit in traffic going back to Manila. The Reef was top of mind as we were here before. Glad to see improvements on the place! They accomodated our phone in questions before we booked via Agoda. Super good deal! No breakfast included but no worries as there as a lot of good restaurants nearby, plus a convenience store at the actual property.. Looking forward to coming back :)

The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly/accommodating. It's our top choice in Subic because of its location. However, It's not senior citizen friendly. The rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floor, and there is no elevator.

It's our first time as a couple to travel long distance. I search through and through because we're on a budget as well. Luckily, we found what fits our budget and met our needs. The location is what i would say the best in the Reef, huge parking space, the view from the room is phenomenal, food is just within reach. Plus, Subic had the weekend Banchetto w/c is just infront of the hotel. We love it! Thank you! And we will try to come back soon. Ipon muna ulit and work work work! Thank you, Agoda!

Family room is just enough for 4 to 5pax. They don't have elevators so not advisable for seniors and pwd, good thing our room is just on 2nd floor. Cleaning wise not so good since our coffee cups have some coffee stains and dust. Beddings seemed old and pillows are not so fluffy anymore. Location wise is very good since it's very accessible to restos within the zone. They have 711 on their left side and their parking lot is an open parking lot accross with a free public park where children can play at the playgrounds.
