We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2016. This hotel has lots of potential, with a lovely view, nice pool & pretty area around the restaurant. However, when you are paying over 3000 php for a room you expect certain things, one of which is good service. This hotel, quite honestly, has terrible service. The one word to describe... More

If you want peace , quiet and commune with nature, Caluwayan Palm Island Resort is the place to be. I've been to many different parts of the world but only few places marked a special spot in my heart and that includes Caluwayan Resort. The Management and Staff are well mannered and deals with the customers in a highly professional... More

I love the view from the resort. The food was great. We got the best service from Wel, one of the staff members. We enjoyed the 30 mins free boat ride but wished there was time to stop and do some snorkling. Downside is cell reception is really bad. There's no landline where you can make/take emergency calls. I wouldn't... More

While in my recent trip to Tacloban, I came across this resort which is an hour drive from Tacloban City. A pleasant surprise indeed since in this is the only resort in the area. Although the beach is not recommended due to the presence of jellyfish, this is compensated by the resort's infinity pool fronting San Pablo Bay. Room is... More

My wife and I visited before Typhoon Yolanda hit and we were surprised at the beauty in this off the beaten path resort. I hope they can rebuild the resort to its former glory as I look forward to returning again soon.

Stumbled across this place by accident on Google when staying in another hotel in Tacloban. I went by tricycle (1hr), but would say get a taxi will be there in half the time! It looks like Palawan in places and is in a beautiful location. Apart from the resort there is nothing really to do but I stayed for 3... More

The place has lots of green with great view of the mountains. The pool is beautifully located you can see the vast blue sea from where you swim. We booked only for a night but the atmosphere is very inviting from the moment we checked in that we extended our stay. You've got to see the place to appreciate it!... More

We went on a day tour to see what Samar Island was like. The hotel charges were Php20/pax entrance and Php150/pax; towel rental for Php50. The beach view was very nice! The waters though warned you of jellyfishes year round. To use the cottage, one has to order food/drinks otherwise, they start charging you Php600.
