We had a late lunch which the hosts were friendly enough to accommodate. Food was excellent, and service was also top quality. Facilities and accommodation looked excellent although we had already booked elsewhere.

We stumbled upon this gem through a friend’s recommendation – it took some finding but absolutely worth it. A group of 7 of us descended on these guys for a late lunch and every effort was made to accommodate us. Amazing local seafood, fantastic views, and great wine and cocktails. David and Delia were super friendly and were a huge...

Thank you David, Delia, Nikka & all the staff at Padre for making our stay so amazing. From the moment you picked us up from Maasin until the time we left, we felt like we were part of the family.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your very positive feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed the food, service and activities so much. We can offer a range of options for solo divers even when there are no other divers staying in the resort at the same time. You visited the more distant dive sites while...

Just visited PBCR for Spring Break and loved it! This was our first family dive trip, and it was amazing. We felt lucky to be on a dive trip as the weather was mostly rainy 3 days straight, but who cares when you’re headed underwater! Great experience as my 11 year old son finished his open water certification with the...

This was one of our worst stays ever. The "resort" is totally isolated in the middle of nowhere. No real restaurants, coffee or supermarket options around. You have to be really patient to get a "motorcycle taxi" organized for you. The atmosphere in the resort was oppressive and depressing. The room is a bad joke and totally overpriced! It is...

Most of what you say is factually correct, although the “backyard” is actually a green garden, walled with natural stone, and planted with mahogany, avocado, mango, frangipani, lime, papaya, banana, orchids, etc. and the laundry rates are in line with those at hotels in the nearby town. None of the sources of your dissatisfaction should have come as any surprise...

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful hotel we absolutelly loved it. The owners, the staff and the other guests really make this place so special. Anyone who loves good food, a really private beach and a non-touristic experience should book their stay immediately. We stayed over Christmas 2016 and had a superb time. The people, the surroundings, the...

This hotel is located on the southern tip of Leyte, 3 hours drive from Tacloban City. Just inform them if you need a hotel transfer.

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.
