I stopped here briefly with my friend whilst waiting for a flight to Manila. The reception staff seemed ok. We just wanted to eat and rest after a 3 hour journey crammed into a minibus from Sogod. We went to sit outside at the Verandah Cafe. The view over the bay was very nice. No one bothered to serve us.... More

Cracked paint... Rusty sink and shower faucets... Creaking wooden cabinets, doors, and bed frames... But the view of the Leyte-Samar strait is invaluable... Dining at Veranda or Working at your room's porch, Overlooking the strait and the Samar island on the horizon, Ah! so awesome!

The views of the bay and Samar across the water is majestic. You can't match the picturesque landscape seen from the hotel. That's part of its charm... On the downside, it's rundown. So I don't think the hype is there and the prices were high for a place that needs work. Idk if it's because it got hammered by Yolanda/Haiyan... More

I love the idea of a vintage hotel but as much as I want to love this hotel, I just can't. Right off the bat, I just want to say that the reason I'm giving it a poor rating and not terrible is because of the pool and some of their dishes. Also, please keep in mind that I stayed... More

The hotel is located outside of the city proper, public transport available is through jeepney or tricycle. The lobby is quite impressive, reception staff needs to smile more,they are accommodating though, we stayed during the visit of Pope Francis and the hotel is quite full. Service is quick especially when you call housekeeping. The telephone in the room is defective,... More

I stayed at the Leyte Park Resort Hotel this past September 2014 with a group. As a result of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan last year which caused damage to this hotel, the hotel has had to refurbish and bring up the standards. My prior post noted that the hotel was falling into disarray; I am happy to report that all the rooms... More

The Leyte Park hotel is an emblem of dilapidated marcos era architecture, much like many of the other monuments in this otherwise sleepy little town. The style of service and food match the decor,run down, far below what shoulf expexted from a hotel of this size. The hotel stands off to the edge of the town, a poorly realised fantasy... More

I used to stay here every time I came but it seems that with the typhoon and NGO's taking up residence, the cost of a room doubled as did the price of the breakfast and no pancakes. It just seems nasty that the hotel would increase its price to foreign aid agencies when they come to help the island. The... More

Yes, this hotel might be a bit tired but after seeing the rest of Tacloban and the aftermath of the typhoon it's perfect for the needs of anyone visiting to do relief work. The rooms are basic but comfy with good TV. There is wifi in most rooms and the view is the best in Tacloban by far. The staff... More

We stayed at Leyte Park Hotel while helping out at the nearby center for typhoon-stricken victims. There were 5 - 8 of us in the group and throughout our stay, I saw several groups checking in and out -- the hotel must be making serious money from volunteers coming from all over the world. What is sad though is that... More
