Having spent some time at the Oriental Legazpi, I chose to stay at the Oriental Leyte when I had to go to Tacloban. It is right beside MacArthur Park, the beach where Gen. Douglas MacArthur landed when he returned to the Philippines during the second world war. Although it is just fifteen minutes from downtown Tacloban, the hotel is in... More

After 3 minutes or so, we were accompanied by the staff to... More

Very nice place for a get away. Right on the beach!!!! Clean comfortable rooms. Good food - Philippine and western. Nice pool - but it was being rebuilt when we were there. Easy access from Tacloban airport. Easy access to the local monuments.
