Our stay at the Leyte Park Hotel was far from pleasant. After check-in we settled in our room and went down for dinner. That first night we immediately had a taste of the entertainment as we witnessed how some guests at the restaurants boozed themselves to a stupour and then started smashing the beer bottles and threatening the staff. Eventually the police had to be called in to bring the situation back under control. The next day upon going to the breakfast area I was approached by the hotel reception and told that I needed to settle the hotel bill. I had previously (several months) before arrival at the hotel pre-paid the bill to the local travel agent the hotel works with. It turned out the agency had never transferred my payment. In the following days a constant discussion about the biil ensued. I refused to pay again seeing that the hotel in my opinion does have some responsibility with regard to the travel agencies they work with. They should make sure to work only with trustworthy ones. I also refused to pay again mainly because this scam could happen any time again when someone would make a reservation. Eventually at check-out eventually I only paid the incidentals. The manager was very courteous and reasonable. Obviously the entire experience marred our stay. The rooms however are in a very poor state of disrepair and are definitely extremely overpriced. Expect tired furniture, cracked mirrors, calcium deposits on the tabs in the bathroom, peeling paint etc. The hotel is in a fine location. The restaurant has very limited items on the menu. The entertainment (the officially hired one) is very basic and simple. In a nutshell : avoid when possible

When you approach the hotel up their wide sweeping drive, i thought WOW the hotel entrance reminded me of plush carribean resorts i have stayed in the past, but that is where the fantasy finishes!!

The hotel is going through a major renovation so there are piles of debris all out the back, but the view from our room was stunning , and thats what i came for a sea view, and thats what we got. The room we had was very good it was a refurbished room(costs 400 peso more), nice balcony with chairs and table.

The swimming pool was fantastic we had it to ourselves for the whole week. Dinning forget it!!! Nearly everday we went out to the alanjandro hotel in Tacloban for breakfast as leyte park had no cornflakes and bananas, ( my must for breakfast), also no bread rolls, no fresh fruit.

The hotel has a restaraunt called san pedro bay, the food was good, but get there before 9 .00 pm as their phill fish chef goes home then!! The hotel front reception staff were really helpfull, and would really try to help you.

I have been coming to Tacloban for extended stays for a few years and have stayed at Leyte Park many times along with other local hotels and have this to share:

Cons-
The staff are friendly but lazy and incompetent (hence the nickname "Lazy Park"). Simple requests (like an extra pillow) are often met with confusion. This place is pretty run down. Many of the old features are broken and rusting or decaying away. Many of the rooms smell of mold and the bedding stinks a little. The food is pretty crappy by "luxury hotel" standards, especially the miserable "breakfast buffet" (avoid). Everywhere are signs of wear and time- virtually nothing is invested in maintinance. Imelda should be ashamed of what they have done to her once magnificent creation.

Pros-
This hotel is the only "luxury" game in town, after all, Tacloban City is not exactly a tourist mecca. Although the Hotel Alejandro is cleaner and nicer, it sits amid the smog and noise of the downtown while Leyte Park has magnificent waterfront views and clean air. The artistic vision of the hotel is exotic and unique with lots of wood and tropical motifs. This hotel has definite Character with a capital "C". The pool is large and deep (a little green) and they exen have a small swim up bar. The hotel is huge and has nice grounds to walk around. The Leyte Park is commonly almost empty, so it is quiet and you will have most of the place to yourself. The rooms are large with fantastic views of the Leyte Gulf and Samar. The McArthur Park nearby is billed as a "luxury" resort but it's is far, far inferior. Be sure to check out Linda David, their resident musician- she performs 5 nites a week and is a pleasure to listen to (she played at my wedding).

Other advice:

A refrigerator is included with the room. Plug it in and fill it up to avoid hotel rip off prices.

You can haggle like hell on the hotel price- I scored a standard room for about $32 USD for 9 days- not bad. Offer to pay cash for the full amount up front and watch the price drop. Ask for a %10 discount for any particular reason and they will listen- this is a bargaining culture.

To eat, avoid the hotel and goto the Floating Resturant a short walk outside the complex. It is serene and the food is very good. Other good dining options in town include the Ocho seafood resturaunt, The Royal Resturaunt for Chinese and Guiseppe's for Italian- top of the line.

Do not pay more than 15 pesos per person for local trike rides leaving from the Leyte Park complex to the downtown. When they see you are white they will try to scam you- agree on a price before getting in and repeat it so you are both sure what was agreed on. The trike drivers are mostly thieves and scoundrels- do not encourage them by overpaying.

For culture, check out the Santo Nino Shirine to marvel at the eclectic collection of foreign luxury items accumulated by the thieving Marcoses. It is only a few pesos to enter and is good for an hour or two- be sure to get a guided tour.

For late nite entertainment, goto Cue Balls for karaoke. It is THE place for the Hoi Paloy of Tacloban- classy and fun with state of the art karaoke machines. They usually have professional comedians and backup singers to keep things rolling.

Happy Travels!

This hotel hasn't undergone any maintenance whatsoever since the time of Imelda, but their prices don't reflect the massive savings they have been making. The paint peels, the roofs fall to pieces, the grass is yellow. Shower water stands in the (unplugged) bathtub after 12 hours, taps are repaired with a puddle of molten metal, the aircon roars away all night, without mentioning the musty smell.
