Good location --- walking distance to the pier, restos and stores around. Staff are friendly and accommodating. There are no toiletries. No hair dryer. The water in the sink was blackish. The staff said to just run it for 5 to 10 minutes. It did clear up but we had to do this everytime we used the faucet. While the...

Loved the central location of this hotel and the friendly staff. The rates are a great value and they provide a comfortable air-conditioned room with good basic amenities--highly recommended for anyone wishing to visit Ormoc. This hotel also has a great local reputation for being the longest running family owned hotel in the area. During the aftermath of the Yolanda...

An incredible find. Pongo's was better than the Ormoc Villa at a third of the cost. Reviews likely reflect when and where in hotel people stayed -- the building had been renovated. Room 265 in the 'old section' seemed freshly new to us. And the rooms in this section of the building don't get street noise as windows face the...

We checked in last week of April and the standard room was worth with the price with the breakfast inclusion. The location was also accessible. Just I dont like during the night time because it seemed haunted and the receptionist, no friendly. I kept waiting and waiting and kept asking so much and I was not attended to.

The rooms are very big, well-lit and beautifully formal but also lend a comfy feel. All you would want to do is revel in their queen size beds and their special ortho pillows and fluffy comforters. They had this beautiful dresser and matching lounging English chairs, top to bottom draperies lining the whole window side. On the outside, it runs...

For some reason, this Hotel is always teeming with guests and visitors. Good for its owners and for its staff, may the business of this Hotel continue to thrive, even if I chose not to stay here again and any more. I was there at this Hotel last month to attend some meetings. I was first given a old room...

Pongos offers rooms in the new and old parts of the hotel. My budget couldn't stretch to the new so I had a room with noisy air con, run-down furniture and cockroaches. Still very much part of a building site the snazzy entrance hall is deceptive. I'm sure there is much better accomodation elswhere and it's not really worth the...
