Padre Burgos a castle fit for royalty.
We had a fantastic time at David and Delia's wonderful place. The location was stunning and it had one of the best small pools we have ever experienced. The food was amazing and the service of the staff was impeccable.
David arranged for us to have our own private dive guide and the use of his boat for six days of diving, which in itself was a nice surprise - thank you to Arnel and the boat crew for some of the most exclusive diving we have ever done.
All in all our stay at Padre Burgos Castle was a wonderful 5* experience and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to others.
Thanks David and Delia and all your staff for a wonderful trip.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but we stayed in room number 1 which had a king size bed.

I took my whole family for this holiday and everyone enjoyed especially the kids. They love the pool a lot. Limasawa trip was quiet expensive but worth it especially the snorkeling in the sanctuary. Picnic lunch was superb, and we saw groups of pilot whales on the way back. Daisy was very attentive to our needs and the rest of the staffs are friendly too. Thank u David for guiding the whole trip. Thanks to his wife Ate Delia for the best foods i've ever tasted and for the chats we had. Looking forward for our next visit in ur beautiful castle.

Padre Burgos Castle is possibly the most beautiful place I have spent time at. Everything from the building, to the vegetation covered cliffs, to the beach, and the delicious food. The atmosphere was just as relaxing as possible. Spending the day snorkeling and relaxing on the secluded beaches, then having a delicious meal watching the wildlife fly overhead as the the light dissipates. My wife and I could not have pictured a better place to get married, absolutely the best trip and experience of our lives.

We were apprehensive about the post-yolanda condition of Tacloban airport upon arrival,
but as it turns out, Tacloban airport is functioning with many flights. Tourists, locals, volunteers are aplenty in Tacloban airport. Restoration of the airport is underway.

David himself fetched us from the airport ready with umbrellas as it was drizzling a bit when we landed. Thank you David.
The first hour of the ride to PBCR, scenes on the ground in Tacloban was a mixture of sadness and gladness. Sadness because of the extent of devastation Yolanda has brought to the city of Tacloban, and gladness because people from every race and color are there to help.

UN shelter homes are scattered all over Tacloban, a number of stores are open and people are making do with whatever they have.

After an hour, the scenery transitions to the less affected areas and road repairs are seen to be underway.

Upon arrival at PBCR we were shown to our room. Very clean,quaint and lovely. Split type aircon, safety box, complementary bottled waters, coffee and tea sachets and electric water kettle. But alas, no TV in the room - this, i suppose, is to force you into enjoying the beautiful outdoors that the Resort and Southern Leyte has to offer. There is, however, a common area where you can watch cable TV and DVDs. Oh, and there is free WiFi within the castle resort.

The house pool is super clean. In fact, the whole resort seems to be spotless and impeccably maintained! The beach in front of the resort is very private.
Continental breakfast was ok. Dinner and lunch is always superb! All prepared by Delia, and they are restaurant quality! Delia personally asks us of our food preferences every single meal and always takes consideration of the menu for the kids. Thank you so much Delia!

The Snorkeling tour was amazing, with the reefs teeming with a vast array of colorful soft and hard corals and fish that seem to be untouched and thriving.

But the highlight was the Limasawa Island tour. On the way (inclusive in the tour), we went dolphin watching, and what an experience it was! Groups of dolphins left and right, swimming and jumping right alongside the boat and taking sneak peaks at us that seem to tell us they are as curious about us as we are about them. Priceless!!! We dock on the white sand beach of the island, enjoyed a few minutes of just marveling at the beautiful crystal clear waters and greeneries along the shore while the PBCR staff prepare for us a scrumptious barbeque picnic lunch by the beach . You can't help but be in awe - God is truly the greatest artist ever! After lunch was a two hour walk around the island - through the quiet barrios, towards the National shrine for the First Mass in the Philippines, up 450 steps to Magellan's Cross, then down again through another quiet barrio and towards the beach on the other side of the island where our bangka was waiting and the PBCR staff welcoming us with the much needed jug filled with cold, refreshing water to freshen us from the long trek through the island. You can't get better service than that. David and Delia has definitely thought of everything for the convenience and comfort of their guests. Oh, and just so you know, the tours were guided by David himself, a personal touch we find really special and very much appreciate.

Thank you so much David and Delia for one of the most amazing beach experiences we've ever had the pleasure of enjoying. And thank you to the staff who have also made our stay very comfortable and welcome!

Thank you so much for all your feedback, and we are truly delighted that you enjoyed "one of the most amazing beach experiences".

We'd like to take the opportunity to pick up on your comment about TV's. As you say the guest rooms do not have TV's (apart from the Family Room which has a DVD player, but was already booked when you made your reservation). We certainly don't "force our guests to enjoy the beautiful outdoors" but it is definitely the fabulous outdoor attractions which draw most people to this beautiful area and getting away from 'the box' for a few days is an added appeal. Indeed so few of our guests watch TV, preferring instead to relish the amazingly tranquil environment, that we may actually dispense with the virtually unused TV in the common lounge area altogether, although we haven't yet taken that step. The free Wi-Fi gives good internet access in all the guest rooms and public areas so people can keep in touch with important news without the need for TV.

Thank you, once again, for your comments and we are very happy that you enjoyed the amazing, natural and uncrowded outdoor attractions which make this place so special.

David & Delia Warren

We spent 10 beautiful vacation days at the hotel. The location is fantastic and the resort beautifully clean and well maintained. Especially the individual service is a highlight. They ask us every day for our special wishes for Dinner. And the food from Delia has a very high quality. We love it. Also we speak with David our excursions. They have been compiled from our wish. In the area are some beautiful snorkeling places. We love Limasawa and especially the whale shark tours, Fortunately, we have seen on two days two different whale sharks. It´s incredible. We both alone with the sharks, I´m sure, this was only possible, because david has good contacts to the local people. The staff in the resort are very friendly and relaying. We felt very comfortable. Thank´s an all. We can only recommend a visit. Ina and Michael
