Padre Burgos Castle Resort is a very romantic , quiet, intimate island getaway. We had the tower room, neat and cozy. The water is just a few steps away, the food is great too. We...

Many thanks for your positive feedback - we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. As well as flights from Manila to Tacloban, there are now also daily fast ferries from Cebu City to Maasin, which is just 30 minutes' drive away. Thank you very much for staying with us, and we look forward to your return visit!...

Beautiful views, amazing rock formations at the beach and nice, quiet room. But what made the difference between a nice place and a perfect holiday was the personal touch. The owners and staff went out of their way to understand our wishes and to make suggestions for things to do. We went snorkeling twice and snorkeling here was clearly better...

This is a bogus review. We have not run the back-up generator at night at any time in the last 2 years. During the couple of (daytime) hours a month when it is necessary to run it, it is barely audible in any of the guest rooms.

We booked this place as it seemed to be the best diving resort in Leyte. It is an exceptionally beautifully set place with its own private beach. The food was great but be aware it is expensive. There is a dive shop but no dive master. He is booked if you want to see him. Bit strange for a dive...
