I was in Ormoc doing volunteer work post-Haiyan and Ormoc Villa was the first base for All Hands Volunteers. I came later but found out they allowed the volunteers to come in the evenings after our work day was done to use internet, buy some drinks and get a chance to relax after a hard day out in the field. That in itself deserves extra stars.
As I lived on the volunteer base most of the time, I, and some others, did stay here on nights if we had the next day off. It was a chance to sleep in a comfortable bed, get a good hot shower and a little peace & quiet in a clean room. The food is very good and the staff is attentive. They even helped me find my lost cell phone! It's a long story but I will say that they went above & beyond to help me out and I wasn't even staying there that night. I looked forward to coming here in the evenings and on days off.
For location, it's very close to the port. You can walk there and to the little outdoor market just down the street. Close to some local restaurants and across the street from the grocery store. If you're going to Ormoc, there's no better place to stay.More
