Summer loving at iCove Beach Resort and Hotel


Summer is the perfect time of the year to explore, make a stroll and see the beach! I won't ever let go of the chance each year to enjoy the sun and the warm summer breeze near the beach. For two consecutive years now, my husband and I's choice has been Subic cause we found out how affordable the hotels are here and it's only a few hours drive from our place in Bulacan. Last year, we made a trip here without bothering to book first cause we were thinking there are so many hotels around Subic Bay Freeport Zone and outside in Bo. Barretto and Baloy. Yes, we have made the greatest mistake. Since it was Holy Week then, all hotels are fully booked and I got so tired walking in and out of each and every hotel near the beach. We ended up at a hotel at the heart of Olongapo City. But now, I would not want to end up tired just inquiring at every hotel there is, so I booked first before going.

Yes, this beautiful place has been our destination for an overnight stay. The iCove Beach Hotel. I can't seem to forget this when I first came in a year ago because it's fresh and new and of course very affordable. But unfortunately then, it was fully booked. We chose the De Luxe Room which cost Php2,299.00. The package came with free breakfast for two. The room was neat and clean with nice and simple interior. Plus the hotel staffs are courteous.

Sorry for this screen shot. I didn't know I have deleted this photo on my phone. But i really wanna share this matchy matchy Crocs flip-flops I bought on sale for my husband and I. One of our summer essentials and all year round also.
And another screen shot from my Instagram account. These are my summer essentials - Rayban sunnies, a hat I bought some years ago at Tagaytay and my new fave colorful bag from The Sak.
I'm enjoying every minute of my breakfast by the beach. Oh summer! How can you be so beautiful! I just love the beach too much. But, unfortunately though the beach here at Subic Bay does not have the clearest water so I just dipped in a few minutes and went back to the pool.

See you again iCove!
Would not ever in the world missed the chance to take a selfie shot.
At the hotel room terrace. Sorry for my ugly shorts.

This was a good, relaxing and enjoyable stay. We will be back. I'm planning to bring my family along the next time. Thanks iCove!
