Leyte Park Resort Hotel
Ranked #15 of 21 Hotels in Tacloban
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Girlfriend (Leyte local) wanted to stay here, obviously heard it was "top hotel" in Tacloban, which it may have been once upon a time.....5 star price/2 star value
Certainly had look of nice hotel but well past its prime. Stayed in renovated room, obviously renovated in the '80s & while it was very spacious it was also very rundown. Noisy aircon, shower that took forever to get hot, tv barely working but it was close to the pool.
Found the service generally very good, food also very good & floating restaurant is definitely worth a visit but do not use in-house laundry service, cost was 10 times what I have paid in Angeles.
Hoping to stay at Sahara Resort or Baluarte Beach next visit, anyone been there?

I have stayed at the leyte park hotel many times my last stay was just january with my family, although rooms needs renovation yet they are cleaned. My kid seen ants that's true but cannot be avoided since the location is near the beach. staff were nice but not all especially front staff male who frowned and sounds always in a hurry to cut me every time i have inquiry ,so i just when back to my room.we ate at veranda the food nice but service is quite slow however we dine that time with plenty guests too ,i had time that i was bored then i tour the hotel , staffs greets me always , i used the wifi but had a problem a lady in red assisted me very nice and good speaks english ,she was the same sent to me by the young lady and explained smoothly that my wife's kit was not stolen by her people even helped search and it was dropped near the bed and found it.My kids swim in the pool that needs repaint,its flaking tiles.Only bad experience i had why i was asked to transferred to stay at the other room because someone will be using my room?!crazy !why let the new guest use the room where i will be transferred?...suggestion please lower down your rates if you will not offer free breakfast or rather offer free breakfast all hotels offer such except yours.

I have stayed at the Leyte Park on 3 different occasions and the place is getting worse. Rooms are in needs of renovations and new paint. Found ants in my room and bed. Clearly, the hotel is not controlling the pests. They need to put back some of the profits into the infrastructure and quit being so cheap! If you want continued business, improve your facilities. Another problem is that there is no buffet breakfast. Most 3 star hotels in the Philippines will include your breakfast, Leyte Park does not. On the positive side, the hotel is in an excellent location with beautiful views. There is so much potential at this location, but hotel management obviously is not interested in investing in improving the rooms and overall facility. Sadly, I will not return to this hotel and look for another option when staying in Tacloban next year. Do not waste your time here.

This is actually one of the nicest places to stay in Tacloban, but it is not all that great. The place is extremely overpriced for the room you get. I found a place that was nicer outside of the town of Tacloban and tried to get my deposit back but they refused. The customer service here was poor. Later I found they over charged me for the room.

On their website it mentions free breakfast. The next morning we had to pay for the breakfast buffet that was supposed to be free. My friend who was with me knew some one who worked here and even she was disappointed in the place.

There are some good things about this place. The view is gorgeous. The nightlife for the youth in Tacloban happens to be at the base of resort. The food here was not bad at all.

If you want a good place to stay I would recommend going outside of Tacloban where you can find places that are nice for a fraction of the price.

Room Tip: Demand to inspect your room first. There are newly renovated rooms and non renovated rooms.

This was once the only five star hotel in the area and the best but it has been poorly maintained that even the room where the former Philippine president Joseph Estrada stayed is not desirable anymore. A lot of mosquitos inside the rooms and even in the lobby, a sign that they do not perform regular fumigation. And besides it has a bit expensive, unreasonable rates! For what? For the below-average pool? Can someone save this place?! This is not good for business travelers especially for those foreigners.

The only good thing is its location near the 6500 area of eclectic, funky bars and fancy restaurants of which the area is managed by the family of the hotel owner.

I have been to Tacloban many, many times and used LPR for extended stays and know a lot about this resort. If you are not Filipino and are travelling to Tacloban from the West, you are probably either travelling with or hooking up with a local female in which case LPR is your best bet for the clean air and quiet location despite its flaws. Although it is a neglected, crumbling shell of its former self, this is the ONLY RESORT in the area- otherwise you will be staying in the smog and noise of the downtown. The pool is nice and the resort is frequently very quiet. Check out their long playing musician Linda David in the evenings- you can’t miss her voice.

STRONG SUGGESTIONS:

EXAMINE all rooms before accepting them- Many rooms have ants, broken AC units, non working toilet, close to construction noise, etc. They may offer the bad rooms first hoping you won’t complain. Complain. Ask questions and examine closely before accepting a room. I settled on room #304 after looking around- try to take this one. Make sure they include a fridge and hotpot.

DO NOT EAT at the Veranda Café within the LPR. Bad food, bad atmosphere and service terrible. In fact, avoid the LPR completely for food- you may want to plug in and fill up the room fridge to avoid unnecessary food & beverage costs.

EAT at the Pier Tres (formerly Floating Restaurant). This is located on the water a short walk within the LPR grounds. Fresh fish & great atmosphere. Get the Lapu-Lapu served sweet & sour. Open for breakfast. Great place.

PARTY at the Barco or Club 65 Hundred- Also a close walk from the LPR. There are numerous small bars and eating places recently built close to the grounds for live music & karaoke- Check them out!

SHOP at the Robenson's mall in Tacloban. It is newer, better and has a movie theatre. The Guisano Mall is run down and a big drag.

DO NOT use hotel transportation when looking to depart LPR- overpriced. Grab a trike and negotiate a price before getting in. Repeat this price to avoid any misunderstanding. You should not pay more than 50 pesos for most destinations within Tacloban.

DO NOT rely on the staff at LPR. Front desk is OK but most others speak little English and seem stupid and easily confused. Even simple requests will probably have to be repeated.

PAY for your room with a credit card. They have stopped the 3% surcharge and you get the best exchange rate.

EXPLORE- Take the reasonably priced excursions to the local islands offered at the travel office in the front lobby. Worth it.

Room Tip: Get room 304

Look nice on photos BUT you will be suprise when you get there.
We reserve a room day before,When we arrive room is not ready we need to stay temporary at the cottage and move when the room we reserve is ready.The room we have is very terrible no fridge,aircon not very cold and too noisy,If you want coffee early in the morning you cant make it coz they dont have kettle.I rang the reception for kettle or hotwater. Bellboy came and bring 1 jug of cold water.instead of hotwater. It takes an hour after hotwater delivered.Its too late coz we have to go out by 7am to attend my friends wedding.

Room Tip: I think no good room to choose.Sorry..
