Great place ,staff wonderful , but as a disabled person it was challenging. Lobby to room distance a problem, no USB outlets or phone, mattress too low. Staff very helpful. Ala carte breakfast good. As were lunch choices. I would rate it a six for disabled people and a nine for unchallenged individuals

Service of the staff was okay, room had complete amenities and came with free breakfast buffet, airport transport is available but depends on driver availability. Airport is only 15-20 minutes away. Food was good but a bit pricey. Some downsides: the wifi was spotty, mostly down in the room and sporadically becomes online, had to go to the restaurant to get a decent signal, same with Telco signal; their seemed to be a door for the shower in bathroom but it was gone; and the glass sliding door that led to the bathroom did not move. Could’ve rated higher if not for these downsides especially the wifi and telco signal which is important to a business traveler.

Overpriced. Dirty bathroom. Water was cut off at some point. Broken bathrm doorknob. Stained pillow sheets. No phones to call front desk if assistance is needed. Have to constantly ask for refill/replacement for bottles of water, coffee cups, toilet paper. Charged for a mattress that we didn’t even have.

I have stayed here overnight to attend a birthday celebration. I had a positive experience staying at this resort contrary to the negative reviews I’ve read. Amenities were ok. The room was massive. The staff were all nice. It would have been more scenic if not for the diversion road structure obstructing the natural view of the sea, for this reason and it’s location away from city centre, I am giving this hotel a 4 stars. I still highly recommend this hotel to everyone!

We decided to stay at a highly rated hotel and were very upset with what most people called 4 to 5 star hotel, it was not! The hotel is very worn, needs lots of repairs and upgrades! The room had broken light switches, broken shower, tv not working, had to call for engineer to fix lights. I was so disappointed, then why we went there the weekend buffet, wow so disappointment, food poor, no taste, poor selection! TERRIBLE!

Disappointing experience. I have had high expectations for the Oriental Leyte. I have stayed here in 2019, and it was a splendid experience. The food was great, the rooms were classy, overall service was splendid. Now, after 4 years and post-pandemic, the hotel seemed to be in bad shape. Many of the facilities are in shabby. Food in the restaurant was the worst. Breakfast buffet was awful. Mismanaged, probably? I have this feeling the entire time that we are not actually getting what we paid for. I would rather stay in a cheaper hotel. Our dinner experience at their Samsara restaurant is another bad story. I ordered pad thai, but they gave me a spaghetti with tomato sauce topped with egg, lime and tofu. It tasted so bad. I returned it and told their service crew that I cannot accept it. So to replace it, I ordered their Macarthur Burger. It tasted so bad as well. They said they changed their executive chef. Then I think they should revamp their menu because none of their cooks know how to prepare what is on the Menu.

By far the best hotel in Tacloban. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Rooms are spacious, but somewhat modestly furnished. The area is luxurious, but does seem to suffer somewhat from a lack of maintenance. I had a great and relaxing stay.

No cell service (Could have been corrected with boosters); No WiFi (Signal does not reach rooms. With signal, sh*t service.) Room reeks off insecticide! Broken bed! Sh*t AC! No freaking water! The manager then answers with: "The WiFi is out of our control." Like WTF?! You had control of all other basic services and you chose to not. I can't even.
