We were looking for a beach resort to go to that is near Manila and found that this resort had good reviews at Trip Advisor; so we decided to try it out.
Wild Orchid in Baloy Beach, Olongapo was a pleasant surprise given the quality and state of the existing Resorts along Baloy Beach. The overall state of Wild Orchid was clean, well-maintaned, and up-to-date. The room rates are within industry standards. The food choices in both restaurants is wide-range, the quantity was good, the quality was not bad, and the price was fair.
We stayed in one of the Beach Front Rooms (currently at Php5,499.00 per night; breakfast excluded) and the room was clean, the facilities new and maintained. The room location was convenient because it was near one of their Restaurant/Bar. It provided a good view of the beach as well.
We did not swim in the beach; instead, we swam in the pool...which was in a separate compound from where the Beach Front Rooms were. You had to cross a small dirt road to get between compounds; the dirt road is well-travelled during daytime by cars & tricycles.
The pool area was pleasant with tables & chairs around it. It also had its own Restaurant/Bar which serves the same food as the one by the beach front. The rooms by the pool are interesting though. I am looking at booking them on our next visit.
Overall, Wild Orchid is a good choice if you wish to be in a beach area near Manila. We will definitely come back.
wever, if you are a person who is negatively affected/bothered by an environment with Foreigner-Filipina partnerships, then this is NOT the resort for you.
