You might want to consider Crystal Beach Resort on your list.

Location: Barangay La Paz, San Narciso, Zambales

How to get there: 
Hop on a Victory Liner Bus going to Iba, Zambales (Php 310 if you're coming from Cubao)
Tell the Bus Conductor that you're going to San Narciso specifically Crystal Beach Resort.

They'll drop you in San Narciso Church (I'm not sure about the church's name). Across to it is a tricycle terminal. Ride a tricycle and tell the driver that you're going to Crystal Beach. (Php 30)

If you'll rent a tent from them, Php 500/person/night inclusive of entrance fee, mat and pillow.

Food: You can bring your own food but they charge corkage fees on drinks/liquors. 
Also, they have a restaurant which serves sumptuous food at an affordable price.
You can also have the breakfast buffet for Php 300 (I think)

My Crystal Beach Experience:
I have been to the resort twice this year and my experiences were the same for both visit.

Reservation was breezy. They responded within reasonable time and gave out clear instruction (i.e. if you have to deposit downpayment or not). 

The resort is easy to find and known so being lost is not a major problem.

The resort even the camping site is not crowded. The place is well maintained. There is enough space for parking, the comfort rooms were clean, the wide sea shore is free from trash. The resorts staffs make rounds in the resort so if you need anything, they can be easily on reach. They are also friendly and hospitable.

The gray shore line is very fine making you want to rollover on it. The resort is also known for surfing but I was not able to try it since there were no surfing waves during my visits.

The sun setting on the ocean is just  pure WOW. You'll have the whole view of the clouds, sky, sun and ocean to your seeking eyes.

Every saturday night, they have an acoustic performance from local artist. The match of bonfire setting, soft sounds of ocean waves and the music all under the starry night is just perfect. 

The food is superb. I also tried their breakfast buffet and it was worth the price.

Overall, I enjoyed and was satisfied in my visits to this resort. I will definitely be back in summer!

The participant gets the higher rating, or the banker gets the higher rating or a tie. In roulette, the players should bet on either black or pink, a single quantity, groups of numbers, even or odd, or excessive [19–36] or low [1–18] numbers.
