“Awesomely unique floating bar and a child-friendly pool”

Treasure Island Resort is a good resort located in Baloy Long Beach at Subic where you can enjoy your vacation in the Philippines alongside the beach.

In  this article, we will tell you about our review on Treasure Island Resort Subic.

They have a decent sized bedrooms, a good shower and toilet for a reasonable price. This Subic resort will fulfill your needs in swimming this summer. The resort is not as big as the others but do not belittle this resort for it is fully packed with Koreans, Americans and Filipinos that will make your weekend awesome.

You need to pay 300 PHP or 7 USD per head in order to use the pool,  but, if you have already booked in their hotel then it is free.

Those who ordered on their menu are also free to use the pool.

One or two lifeguards are roaming beside the pool. Your children can bring floating devices and can wear anything, whether its a full packed tee-shirts or just a swimming trunks. There are life vests on the side, but you can not borrow or rent them, because they are only used for Kayak.

Treasure Island Subic Resort has a decent menu on our first visit on the resort. We did not like how the chicken was cooked as well as their Pizza. But, on our next visit, the foods served were 10 times better on the first ones.

I theorized that the amount of visitors affect the freshness of the foods served. “As the visitors increases, the food quality also increases, and vice versa”. Dayumm!

I think it is fairly common in the Philippines that restaurants or hotels will “stock” fresh foods if they are not sold for the whole day…… up to the next days.

Treasure Island Subic doesn’t only give you the experience of a swimming pool but you can also hop into the Subic Sea! — for free! Yes, for FREE, but you have to be careful because there are no lifeguards on duty for the sea swimmers.

They also have a unique floating bar where you can enjoy your drinks with your partner and friends together with some boats on the side.

Hotel booking is a must of you want to stay in Subic for a couple of days, they have a rate of around ₱2,300/ night or 54 USD for deluxe rooms, check out the availability of rooms here

The resort practices the importance of electricity by using a plug which you need to put in in order for you to use the air conditioning unit  in the room. The plug will always be attached to the key holder so that when everyone leaves the room, the electric consumption will be cut off. Its basically a smart way to conserve energy.
