We stayed for 5 days at the lovely Padre Burgos Castle Resort: a paradise situated in the district of Southern Leyte, far away from the routes of mass tourism. The structure, certainly higher in standard than other accommodation in the area, offers the best you can find in the Philippines. The resort features well-appointed rooms, comfortable and clean, with air...

We stayed in this beautiful resort for 3 days. Everything about it is just as we have read from the various reviews. It was easy making a booking and David and Delia communicated with us constantly, giving us advise on how to make payment, arranging for our airport transfer, finding out the schedule of Sunday mass, etc. They were the...

Padre Burgos a castle fit for royalty. We had a fantastic time at David and Delia's wonderful place. The location was stunning and it had one of the best small pools we have ever experienced. The food was amazing and the service of the staff was impeccable. David arranged for us to have our own private dive guide and the...

I took my whole family for this holiday and everyone enjoyed especially the kids. They love the pool a lot. Limasawa trip was quiet expensive but worth it especially the snorkeling in the sanctuary. Picnic lunch was superb, and we saw groups of pilot whales on the way back. Daisy was very attentive to our needs and the rest of...

Padre Burgos Castle is possibly the most beautiful place I have spent time at. Everything from the building, to the vegetation covered cliffs, to the beach, and the delicious food. The atmosphere was just as relaxing as possible. Spending the day snorkeling and relaxing on the secluded beaches, then having a delicious meal watching the wildlife fly overhead as the...

We were apprehensive about the post-yolanda condition of Tacloban airport upon arrival, but as it turns out, Tacloban airport is functioning with many flights. Tourists, locals, volunteers are aplenty in Tacloban airport. Restoration of the airport is underway. David himself fetched us from the airport ready with umbrellas as it was drizzling a bit when we landed. Thank you David....

We spent 10 beautiful vacation days at the hotel. The location is fantastic and the resort beautifully clean and well maintained. Especially the individual service is a highlight. They ask us every day for our special wishes for Dinner. And the food from Delia has a very high quality. We love it. Also we speak with David our excursions. They...

My wife and I live in Toronto, Canada and travel to the Philippines at least every other year. I should note that my wife is originally from the Philippines. The itinerary always includes a visit to my wife’s parents in Leyte, as well as a new destination choice (or two) within the Philippines. This year, one of those choices was...

This is a fantastic little "resort" that really lets you get away from it all. With only five rooms, it's perfect for anyone who doesn't like the feel of a large, crowded resort, but you still get the amenities like a lovely pool, fantastic massages, and great food. On top of all that, the snorkeling is incredible; we saw so...

Castle Rock is a small family run luxury hotel at the very end of Southern Leyte, Philippines. We came following volunteering after the Typhoon disaster farther north. There is no damage here in the south. This is a perfect place for both relaxation and beach and water activities. The owners and staff are attentive without being intrusive...such a great combination!...
