Seorabeol Grand Leisure Hotel Review

Seorabeol Grand Leisure Hotel Review

Last September 5, hubby and I decided to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary in one of the hotels in Subic Bay. Prior to that, we searched for an affordable yet aesthetically appealing hotel within the vicinity through Agoda. The reason we chose to have an overnight staycation nearby instead of traveling somewhere farther is that we have a 5-month old baby girl to tend. Of course, we want to celebrate this milestone in our marriage with her. Another reason is that the month of September is pretty much unpredictable. We didn’t want to risk traveling unsure of what weather we’re going to have. After all, our little Via was taking medicines and nebulizing that time and we didn’t want to add further discomfort.

 

Our Agoda search led us to Seorabeol Grand Leisure Hotel, Subic Bay. We booked a Standard Queen bed at $54.78 (about PhP2,500). The room’s initial rate was $44.68. The additional $10.1 included the 12.6% hotel tax and 10% service charge). This is already a good deal as it saved us about PhP250 compared to booking directly at Seorabeol’s website.

 

If you’re planning to book a Subic Bay hotel soon, you might want to read this Seorabeol Grand Leisure Hotel Review and consider booking one of their rooms afterwards.

Rate Inclusions

 

The rate above is good for 2 pax (hubby and I). Infants and children until 12 years old are free of charge if they’re going to use existing bedding. It also comes with a buffet breakfast for 2 at the hotel’s Nico’s Restaurant. Surprisingly, upon arriving at the hotel and checking in with the Front Desk lady, she gave us 1 stub for their house special. The claiming time was from 4:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M.

Their house special comprises 2 slices of Cinnamon bread and a serving of their Avocado cooler (they taste great!) 😀

 

Standard Queen Room Features

 

Our room is quite big for a couple and a baby. You can freely move around. It has a cable TV, a closet with a few hangers, an intercom, a split-type AC, hot and cold water (both for the shower and the sink faucet), and a hair dryer inside the toilet and bathroom. What I love about our room is that it has a balcony, giving us a poolside view. It also offers free WiFi in every room and public areas. The WiFi password will be given to you upon check in. However, during our stay, I was not able to connect to their WiFi.

Swimming Pool

 

The swimming pool is located beside the parking area. Don’t worry because it is gated, so those who park their cars won’t be able to go straight to the poolside. You also need to get a pool stub at the reception. This will also serve as the stub for the towel (rooms towels are white while their pool towels are blue). Their pool attendant is keen on checking the pool stubs and the proper swimming attire, but he is warm enough to take photos for you. 😉

 

There is a small round pool for kids which is about 2 feet. The bigger pool is designed to accommodate both children and adults. Its depth ranges from 2 feet to 6 feet.

Food

 

Although we didn’t eat our dinner at the hotel’s restaurant (we dined at Gerry’s Grill), tasting their house special and buffet breakfast is enough to say that they have pretty great chefs at Nico’s. 😉

 

Let’s talk about the breakfast buffet… We went down to their Nico’s Restaurant at past 9:00 A.M. because hubby slept late watching TV. The breakfast buffet opens from 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. Although we came in almost close to the last call, the buffet was almost fully replenished (the corned beef serving dish wasn’t). They had soup, cereals (corn flakes and choco), sliced breads that you can toast, butter, strawberry jam, scrambled eggs, garlic rice, a veggie dish (chopsuey-like with mongo sprouts), longganisa, daing, mini cupcakes, sweetened bananas, slices of pineapple and mangoes, coffee, and orange juice.

 

Personally, I don’t need much for breakfast so I guess I’m okay with what they prepared.

Staff

 

From the front desk people to the pool attendant to the room boy and to the restaurant staff, everyone welcomed us with a smile. They are very warm and very eager to assist us. Keep it up guys! 😀

 

Our Staycation In A Nutshell

 

Hubby and I are very contented with our staycation and we feel that our baby girl enjoyed too! 🙂 We really did get the value for our money. Staying at Seorabeol Grand Leisure Hotel is an inexpensive yet memorable way to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary as a family. We will surely come back! 😀

 

I hope you find this Seorabeol Grand Leisure Hotel review helpful. 😉
