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.

The good: Nice location and landscaping. OK pool. Recommend visiting for an hour or so to take some photos. The bad: Almost too much to list. I am usually pretty easy to please regarding accommodation and dining, but this place seems to go out of its way to make your stay unpleasant. Staff are either rude or incompetent, accomodation in...

On March 27, 2013, my sister called in and the receptionist told my sister that they will have vacant room by noon. We supposed to have 2 cottages because I am bringing my whole family. When we arrived there and start talking to the receptionist, they end up giving us only 1 cottage. I asked if they will have available... More

it was an unplanned overnight stay at Caluwayan. It was recommended to us by the neighboring Jasmin Beach resort since they are fully booked. The rooms were new and modern, with infinity pool fronting seaside and overlooking rock formations. one thing to learn about "waray's" : upfront in speaking tagalog (not using courtesy words like PO and OPO, commonly interpreted...

I had great visits there for the weekend. It's 1 hour from tacloban by van. The place is very clean and good service. There is one thing you should know - no wifi / Internet. And the cellular signal is not so good ... I had good time there !

Fresh seafoods (crabs, fish, and more) plus native foods (camote, saging at puto). Clean rooms, cottages and CR. Well-manicured landscaping and well-maintained swimming pools. Owners are down-to-earth ... you cannot detect them as owners. And what's more? Prices are negotiable ... discounts are available for any type of customer ... an individual, groups, private or government ... sounds like an... More
