We went there in order to visit Biliran in the North of Leyte. The accomodation was quite nice, room ok. We had the opportunity to rent motorbike in order to visit the island. The price was alright for everything. The food was nice ( i recommand the fried chicken with french fries and the pancake for the breakfast).

We had our year-end evaluation and 2016 operational planning at Marvin's Seaside Inn and I didn't have any problem in our four days and three nights stay. Good food, clean rooms, friendly and accommodating staff. We were 55 in the group and I did not hear any complaint from the participants. I am a very demanding person when it comes... More

Have stayed here several times. The rooms are clean, the restaurant is small (2 tables). The menu is good but often items listed are not available. The kitchen staff will go out of their way to accommodate special request. Nice pool (across the road). Try the outdoor terrace on the seawall if you like a nice breeze.

Stayed here one night, in this rather bleak hotel, on the sea front, in the middle of a little barangay /village about 8 mins tricycle ride , (the local taxi) from naval. The kitchen and waiting staff were charming and friendly. But the evening manager, who took my booking, would have been happier if i had never walked into her... More

As others have previously reviewed its not the best experience to be had. I paid a month upfront saving 200 peso a night so the room totalled 1300 per night. After the first few nights I would of checked out due to the attitude & rudeness of a couple of staff if I hadn't paid upfront to get the maximum... More

Dirty rooms, No Water, Staff do not keep your booking. A very well known Hotel in Biliran Province, but its been neglected and the staff are not interested in giving a good service. Better Hotel around the Province now exist, so people now expect better.

The only reason they had people staying there is that they do advertising. When I emailed them I never got a reply even long before the big typhoon. Called them and no one answered the phone. So why did I stayed there? A friend said it is the only place to stay. They are no longer my friend. The outside... More

Altho the room was basically fine , the rude staff were a total turn-off. Not only were they rude, they could offer no helpful suggestions of what to see or how to get places. Altho we were planning to stay two nights we moved to a much friendlier place.

The staff was excellent. Almost shy at times but very freindly. The food was really a surprise, great quality and plenty to eat. Avoid the steak and jump on the Chop Suey you wont be disappointed :) Dining by the water is so nice... Thanks to the staff for my pleasant stay and hope you are safe!
