Dirty rooms, No Water, Staff do not keep your booking. A very well known Hotel in Biliran Province, but its been neglected and the staff are not interested in giving a good service. Better Hotel around the Province now exist, so people now expect better.

The only reason they had people staying there is that they do advertising. When I emailed them I never got a reply even long before the big typhoon. Called them and no one answered the phone. So why did I stayed there? A friend said it is the only place to stay. They are no longer my friend. The outside... More

Altho the room was basically fine , the rude staff were a total turn-off. Not only were they rude, they could offer no helpful suggestions of what to see or how to get places. Altho we were planning to stay two nights we moved to a much friendlier place.

The staff was excellent. Almost shy at times but very freindly. The food was really a surprise, great quality and plenty to eat. Avoid the steak and jump on the Chop Suey you wont be disappointed :) Dining by the water is so nice... Thanks to the staff for my pleasant stay and hope you are safe!

Stayed here about three times now after my preferred location Biliran Garden Resort wouldn't answer the phone yet again. The out building has the nicest and largest rooms, but was in the smallest room this year which was a bit like servant quarters, so would book in advance. Staff are friendly and helpful as is the security, food is good... More

Attended a friend's wedding in Leyte and stayed at Marvin's. Nice place to stay in Biliran. Very affordable accommodation rate, just ok rooms but food and service is great. It has a homey touch to it.

We stayed for two nights, the hotel was a good base for exploring the beautiful waterfalls on the island. We paid p1,200 for a double room with aircon, this was expensive for the quality of the room. The room was big, clean but very dated and felt run down, the TV didn't work, the bathroom was small but ok. The... More

We traveled to Naval for my friend's wedding. Her entire entourage stayed in this Resort. Room is spacious for 3, 1 double and 1 single bed. Bed Mattress is too soft, not good if you have lower back pains. Room is clean upon arrival and you need to request if you want your room to be cleaned ^_^ faucet water... More

When you're staying in Naval, you're likely ending up at Marvin's. It's an ok place with attentative staff, although it sometimes took over an hour to prepare lunch or dinner! The main drawback were the showers... we stayed for three nights and during our stay there was not enough pressure (on the top floor) to take a decent shower! So... More

It's not perfect, but there's a lot to recommend Marvin's Seaside Inn. If you are going to be in Biliran, Naval is the hub and no matter where you are going to want to go, Naval is likely to be your base anyway. Marvin's is located out of the city center, which cuts down on the noise and congestion. No,... More
