Wild Orchid is one of the best hotels in Angeles City, and probably the best in Subic Bay.
Wild Orchid isn’t exactly on the Baloy Lomg Beach, but it’s near enough the good restaurants, the beach, and of course the big street with all the bars of Barrio Barretto
As well as the poolside bar (Scalliwags) there’s a second indoor bar called Moby Dicks, and of course the best damned swimming pool in Subic Bay.
The poolside bar (Scalliwags Bar) doesn’t require you to be resident in the hotel, and they make a whole heap of great cocktails. Their Bloody Mary will quench any hangover.
There’s a range of rooms, which are usually cheaper on the door than by booking online that start from about $60 a night. Fly the bus to Angeles City also leaves from here.
Rooms here are not exactly Angeles Beach Club, but more than do the job. The poolside rooms are particularly good at Wild Orchid. All rooms come equipped with a safe. Use the safe.
If you’re looking for a cheaper option on the same area, check out Treasure Island (you can still drink at the bar at Wild Orchid).
In our opinion the best bang for your buck in Olongapo, Subic Bay.
