We stayed a week at Padre Burgos Hotel & Resort. David, Delia and their charming staff succeeded thoroughly in their task to help us feel right at home whilst enjoying our holiday in the sun. The welcoming hotel has a family feel between the owners and the staff and this made the whole stay feel even more comfortable although their... More

A "boutique hotel" with "luxurious accommodation"? You must be joking! We - myself, partner and two children (5 yrs and 15 months) - spent five nights here over the Christmas period and left feeling pretty deflated. I'll be as objective and fair as I can, but I really fail to see how any guests - particularly families - can leave... More

Thank you for your review. Given your continual family arguments, which were a constant annoyance to our other guests and led to you indulging in the unacceptable behaviour of spending at least 1 night sleeping on the sofa in the hotel lounge, it is not surprising that your holiday was disappointing. Let us address some of the points you make.... More

Trip advisor I celebrated Christmas and New Year at this beautiful resort towards the southern tip of Leyte island. After a long transfer from Manila to Tacloban I was keen to arrive at the resort.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We are delighted that had such a wonderful holiday with us over Christmas and New Year. Your experience walking outside the resort was extremely unusual.

This place definitely was the experience we were hoping for. The location is great, and so is the elevated views over the bay, the fresh sea breeze and the secluded private beach. The rooms was perfect too, and we had the sleeps of our life here. The food was also a pleasant surprise, our host made great tasty food and... More
