When in Tacloban City in Leyte, you may want to stay in Leyte Park Resort Hotel. My officemates have stayed there previously and they say accommodations are okay and clean although the facility is quite old already.

You can enjoy the various amenities at the hotel. I’m sure my kids will enjoy the pool with the slide.

The hotel offers several excursions to choose from: a trip to the Marabut Marine Park; the Sohoton Cave; San Juanico Bridge; a city tour (which includes a visit to the Sto. NiƱo Shrine and Museum showcasing the collections of former First Lady Imelda Marcos who hails from Tacloban); and the MacArthur Park, among others.

There are several rooms/cottages to choose from. Price ranges from P2,240 a night for the simplest room to P10,000 for a pool villa.
