Stayed here recently on a business trip and was surprised to find such a classy hotel in this non-touristy area. The building were well-kept but outdated. It look like this place was still recovering from the 2013 typhoon as some facilities on their grounds were still damaged. The downs - no potable water in rooms (you have to purchase at... More

The place looks clean and modern. However there are building works going on, the pool doesn't look clean (we went to take our 2 year old swimming and decided not to after looking in the pool), most importantly there were very few guests. There were many staff standing doing nothing or chatting-seems like bad management. The food was beyond a... More

There are two basic way to get to Ormoc City, Leyte from Manila. The first is via Cebu which is a one hour and 10 minute flight to Mactan-Cebu International Airport then shuttle to the Port of Cebu to take a fast ferry catamaran of SuperCat, that is an almost three hour boat ride to the Port of Ormoc. The... More

Not bad for a hotel in a smaller city where there's not much of other competition , we had dinner here and the view was gorgeous. If you are looking for a decent hotel to stay in Ormoc this would be lovely. The food in the restaurant wasn't anything spectacular but it wasn't that bad at all.

Mixed views about this place. First the plus: the building itself is quite nice, with a sort of Spanish-Filipino charm (to my not-architect eyes), but on the other hand you could equally say it feels dated, since apparently the hotel age is not actually as retro as its styling. Everything seems maintained and the grounds well kept and clean. The... More

Well this resort hotel has a nice ambiance and good food (i.e. if you're willing to wait) but I think that's all that's good about it. The rooms are not what you're paying for and the service is bad. I guess it reflects how poorly the place is managed. For daytime activities like parties and gatherings, this place would be... More

Rooms are dim. Can't drink the water and there's none supplied. Wine is the worst ever. Aircon is ineffective and noisy. No room safe. I have stayed at ormoc villa many times and will always go back there. This stay was a terrible disappointment...

Deluxe room is big but lacks a ref..wifi only works by the lobby. With the price you pay you should be getting more. Pool is dirty, my son got itchy skin after swimming. Location is good,ambiance is also great. The resort just lack some kind of "Ohmmp" . It's okay for a night stay but not more.

Not very busy and service poor with long waits. Didn't have what we ordered and didn't bother to tell us until they bought the rest of food out. Deceased owner of resort would've been very sad. Has great potential with proper management in restaurant area. Did not stay at resort, but other reviews not good.

Welcome to the mold resort. Terrible service, filthy rooms, bugs everywhere. I posted pictures of the bugs and mold a month ago and they never showed up in the comment section......what happened to them?
