Tacloban Hotels & Shopping

One of the country's top resorts is found in Tacloban City. The Leyte Park Resort Hotel offers guests with quarters, warm service, food and a unique ambiance. Conveniently located in the heart of the city. Built by former First Lady Imelda Marcos in 1979, the hotel closed for three years until in 1994 when it reopened following renovation and refurbishing. It is nestled on a hill overlooking beautiful San Pedro Bay.



Other fine hotels/resorts in the city are the Asia Stars Hotel, Vic-Mar Resort, Tacloban Plaza, and Hotel Alejandro. Inside this hotel is a World War II mini museum.

  1. Hello,

    I am Tacloban based, and I run a private backpackers guesthouse. I also do alot of travelling around the Eastern Visayas to discover new places of interest.

    I am writing to inform you that Leyte Park Hotel doesnt fit in your description anymore. This might be misleading to your readers. The Hotel is totally in shambles and down the drain. The last time I visited the place last May, rainwater was seeping through some parts of the roof. Guests often complain of cockroaches in their rooms. The rooms, though still retain signs of luxury and oppulence, are rather musty and threadbare.

    The fate of Leyte Park is a sad story. I hope it will be renovated and refurbished to what it used to be.

  2. Hello Fire,

    As you can see I posted this article more than a year ago, so there is no intent to mislead my readers. In span of more than one year, there is the possibility the hotel could change drastically anytime especially if it is not well taken care of.

    Nevertheless, thank you for updating this information.

    By the way, you didn’t leave you contact details. I am interested to know your private backpackers guesthouse in Tacloban City.
