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

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in February 2014. We walked in to inquire if they had any rooms available and they readily accommodated us. Must mention Jerry, one of the housekeepers, who always had a smile on his face and went to great lengths to ensure that we had the room we wanted, a queen with pool view.... More

Stay in this hotel in Jan.,2014. Only a few guests. I like the atmosphere in this hotel. Lobby is quiet, the arrangement looks elegant. Room is quiet. Even the hotel looks not refurbished for many years, the room furniture, linins looks not new. But generally, all the facility maintained in good condition. Except my room’s air-con a bit noisy some... More

Got a chance to drop by this place while touring the city on foot. The lobby is very native-ly decorated and cozy enough to welcome anyone who is tired from a day of touring the city. The restaurant boasts of local and international delicacies and the rooms as i have heard are quite nice also. The pool is good and... More

Visited in July 2012 (10 days) and plan to visit again in July 2013. Some of the facilities and decor are a bit dated but the hotel doesn't advertise itself in the 5 or 4 star class. My room overlooking the pool and with a sea view was spacious and clean. Staff very helpful and service generally good. An excellent... More
