Many parents are asking me, how come a “frugal”, “practical” ,“tipid mommy” like me loves traveling.

As a mom and family finance advocate, I believe that investment is not just about paper assets alone – hindi lang stock market, mutual funds and etc.


In our family, we love creating memories together, we call it “investing in memories”. It is one of our ways to invest in our child’s memory bank. We don’t buy a lot of new stuff, instead we allocate those savings for our travel or what we call in our family “celebration fund”.

That’s why simple, budget conscious families like us can also include traveling in our families’ budget.

And we are thankful that we were able to cross out one of our bucket list item as a family which is Subic Bay, Zambales, isa sa mga goal destination namin.

Kaya we were so happy and thankful when our family was given an opportunity to stay at Acea Subic Bay, an exclusive beach front resort in Subic.

Kinikilig akong ishare sainyo mommies on why you should also consider it on your next family get away: 

  • Travel time – our family always consider travel destinations that are accessible by land, mas tipid kasi sa transportation expense, walang airfare and all. That’s one of the things we love about Acea Subic Bay (province of Zambales), 3 hours away lang from Manila and you can enjoy a private beach front resort na. A drive away lang!
  • Private Resort – we appreciate how exclusive it is compared to other public beach in the area. You’ll enjoy the privacy, tranquility of this place. Perfect sa mga gusto mag moment, time alone, quality time with loved ones. Who doesn’t enjoy a vacation with less crowd? Almost all of us especially moms love that.


  • Kid friendly and Family oriented Facilities – I’m surprised that they have a very nice play area inside their resort.

Play Area for kids


“Wow!” Ayan ang nasabi ni Zee when he saw the play area, we moms can all agree that there’s something about balls and slides that make every child extra happy. Kaya pang family time talaga sa Acea Subic Bay.

They also have a game room where families and friends can enjoy different games for entertainment.

  • Great Food at Salt Restaurant – they have an in house resto at Acea Subic Bay, and isa ito sa sobrang na-enjoy namin sa stay namin, the “fooooood”. They offer really great food not just good in the eyes, but also it taste really good mommies. Favorite namin yung Baby Back Ribs, Chocolate Truffles, Asian Cheese Cake and their Acea Iced Tea.

The room rates comes with complementary breakfast buffet for two kaya sulit!

  • Nice & Comfortable room – moms like me appreciate the hotel room a lot during vacation, because it is our time to recharge even if it feels like “we are just taking care of our family in a different location” haha!

Our family enjoyed our comfortable bed, the room interiors are also vintage chic. Spacious enough for our kids to play around the room too. They have an ocean view and garden view mommies, 64 rooms yung total sa Acea so not just for family travel, it is also great for company trips.

  • Breathtaking view – living in a hurried and busy environment in the metro, you will really appreciate the relaxing wave, beautiful sunset in Acea Subic Bay.

  • Superb Customer Service – the staff are very helpful and hospitable making us feel at home during our whole stay.
  • Near Zoobic Safari, Oceans Adventure and Inflatable Island – if you want to load your Subic trip with lots of adventure and fun for the whole family, Acea Subic Bay is situated near to most of the travel spots in Subic City. You can also rent a car from the hotel, and surprisingly may grab na din pala sa Subic mommies!

Be Adventurous and explore the wild life at Zoobic Safari!

Overall, we really had lots of fun and we will surely go back at Acea Subic Bay. It is a must try, a great add-on to your go-to beach places near the Metro. The value for money is really sulit! with its beauty, facilities, food and superb customer service super thumbs up!

    So timely, I am already scouting for a beach spot for our family for summer (because we can’t afford pa to go to Shang Cebu hahaha). I just have to find out if they offer water sports na gusto ng mga bigger kids. Great review!

  2. tweenselmom

    Checked their website and they have parasailing and banana boat na mas mura kesa sa iba. Bookmarking this!

    Thanks for sharing this. We’re always on a look out for great places to take the kids to. And we really need to take a break again soon.

    Acea Subic seems like a nice place for a family vacation.
    We haven’t been to Subic for a while; For easy beach escapes our go to beach is San Juan Batangas, but seeing your post made me feel excited to go to Subic again. Thanks for sharing.

    Investing in memories. It’s so important. We love traveling and spending time together having fun. Investing our time with kids is one thing that will generate precious and priceless returns. 🙂

    It’s a plus talaga na may play area yung pupuntahan 🙂 We also started a travel fund, para hindi naman laging tipid. And to have more memories with the kids. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this!

    I saw your posts on my IG feed and I saved it right away. I will definitely check this out, still no summer plans yet and Subic is also on my list. Thank you momsh!

    Love it that you were able to relax even for a few days. That means a lot, leaving the hustle and bustle of city living and just enjoying the serene cool water, scorching beach sun, and fine sand.
