The hotel is old. But the view is quite good, but not majestic. You get to see sea (lol) the foods being served is good. The café is okay although the coffee is a bit far from those high end coffee shops in manila (so if you're from manila, don't expect it to be just like the coffee shop in... More

The hotel looks like it has not had an upgrade or renovation since the 1980s. Everything is old, but not yet run down. You can see that it was a very elegant place to stay years ago. The pool is very clean. The hotel is walking distance from Fort Pilar, Paseo del Mar (nightlife, tourism office and boarding the boat... More

This is a qiant and charming little hotel... granted it's a little older... however for this patron it was a endearing factor.... the service and staff was top notch... I have fond memories of this beautiful place and the grounds which were well cared for... if your not hyper concerned for the newest and most up-to-date hotel, I think you... More

When I was young, I had a picture in this hotel. 20 years later, I returned to Zamboanga for a business trip. I was surprised to be booked here. They have no shuttle service so I had to take the tricycle. My room was on the second floor so I had to take the stairs (no elevator here). It was... More

To be fair with Lantaka Hotel, the restaurant is okay, the pool area is very nice. But the rooms are so, so, so dilapidated and old. Cracked bathroom tiles, room dirty, toilet flush not functional, scarred old mirror, no hot water, ipis and lamok (mosquitoes and cockroaches) all over the place. I practically have a litany of complaints. Perfect timing... More

Been to Lantaka last April 2014. The pool is clean, and a lifeguard was there all the time. The food is tooooooo pricey. Staffs were very helpful. One thing to remember though, you can't use their swimming pool as a walk in client. Its either you need to be a member and sumbit an intention letter or get a friend... More

Overall, I found the staff very helpful with any questions that were asked and they were more than happy to help us with the wedding and honeymoon activities. The place felt very secure and also peaceful and quiet. The power-supply was problematic in Zamboanga at the time with 2-3 power failures each day but the Hotel had its own generator... More

The television is only a laptop size screen, impossible to watch TV in bed. The mattress and pillows are thin foam. The pool and outside bar is very good. The service from the staff is fine. The old furnishings inside the room makes you feel uncomfortable and tired. There is nothing uplifting or relaxing in the rooms to make you... More

This hotel has lots of history - literally. Its old, creaky, and has that dingy atmosphere of history - nothing of its classic look offers anything of significant value to the guests excepts its location - which is near paseo del mar and offers a view of the sea/zamboanga port (rooms are more expensive on that side though). If you... More
